" "As hard as the training is, people always finish with a smile," said Schulein, who founded Aerial Fitness Orange County a year ago.

One of my favorite L.A. haunts is South La Brea Avenue. Good shopping and good eating: it's an awesome combo. Add a couple of friends to the adventure, and you have my idea of a great day. The store I never miss is the Silk Trading Company. It has beautiful fabrics in every color and pattern imaginable. It has hardware and furniture, but the best part about the Silk Trading Company is the drapery out of a box. Pre-made silk drapery panels that would quench any thirst for instant gratification.
