We are half way through our Hawaiian vacation and could not be enjoying ourselves more. I am going to continue to keep it quiet until we return but I am posting pics on Instagram if you would like to see what we are up to (@jugglinginheels). 

Also, don’t forget to RSVP to the Rebecca Taylor event
I look forward to seeing you there!

Happy Weekend

What do you get when you combine one mom, three children, Rubio’s, a summer afternoon and a camera?

A crazy lunch date filled with yummy food, laughs and a lot of silly photos.

Their new Chimichurri salmon Tacos….AMAZING.
Superman, the Celtics, Minnie Mouse, Sports Center and USC
We are a branding mess

I don’t think Rubio’s knew what chaos they were inviting in when they asked us to come try the new Chimichurri Salmon tacos and kids meals but we greatly appreciated the invite!  Everyone enjoyed everything they ordered (like I mentioned before, the tacos were amazing) and I can now add Rubio’s to the list of places the entire family can eat something they enjoy, especially when a churro comes at the end.  We paid a visit to the Rancho Snta Margarita location but there are locations throughout California, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada (you can find all locations here.)

Also, the winners of the 3-day Burke Williams spa passes have been chosen!  Click here to see if you won.


* Juggling in Heels received complimentary meals from Rubio’s but these opinions are 100% my own.

The weekend is here and we will be spending most of our time on the soccer field enjoying a little mid-summer tournament.  When we are not cheering the Oldest on we will be packing for our vacation (leaving next Tuesday!!) and celebrating a friend’s birthday.  This weekend also marks the final month countdown before school starts.  I am SO NOT ready for the kids to go back to school and am happy we have some vacations planned prior to that last day of summer.  

I spent this last week finalizing some details for for some fun upcoming projects and cannot wait to share them with you!  Keep an eye out.

If you missed it this week…
We had some fun with Disney and Old Navy
I planned a look for Brunch
 I took a look back at what I wore
we enjoyed some breathtaking views in LA

I will be announcing the winner of the Burke Williams giveaway on Monday.
Today is the last day!  Enter here.

Have a great weekend. 

After our visit to The Walt Disney Studios, there was still a lot of time left in the day so we figured, why not stop at the Griffith Observatory?  It as been on my list of places to take the kids for a while now (Middle Man is obsessed with Space) and with it only a few miles away from where we were, it just made sense.  I am so glad we made the stop because it was a beautiful day and not only did the kids love seeing all the space exhibits but the views outside were breathtaking.  You can sometimes forget these gems in LA when you are moving your way quickly from one place to another on the freeway but it is definitely one of those LA landmarks that is a MUST SEE for everyone.



With summer in full swing, I have not been doing a good job of pulling looks together.  With the majority of our time in bathing suits, it has just felt like a lot of work.  What can I say, I am enjoying the fact that we can be a bit lazy during the summer.  There have been a few moments of motivation thanks to a date night, birthday party, summer excursions and of course, the 4th of July.

On Saturday the family and I ventured up to the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank to attend Old Navy’s “Mickey Through the Decades” Vintage Tee Collection launch party. The kids had a blast picking out their own tee’s from the large selection of designs created to showcase Mickey and his friends throughout the years.  My favorite?  The old school Mickey Mouse Club shirt.  I used to love that show.

After visiting the t-shirt booth and previewing the entire collection (in which Baby Girl promptly asked to put hers on), we were able to visit with Mickey and Minnie (only Baby Girl would take the photos though…), get our own character drawings, watch some new Mickey short films, complete some Disney crafts, and indulge in some pretty tasty treats all day long.  They had their own red carpet moment and for the first time they were able to see what a real movie studio looks like.  It was a great new adventure for them and just another reason why we love bringing them up to LA.

The entire collection of Disney tees are available now at Old Navy stores or online here.

I had every intention of taking photos and having a beautiful post for this Zucchini and Chicken Salad.  Unfortunately, I just got lazy.  It is too bad too because it was SO easy to make and VERY good.  Hopefully this one photo entices you enough to try it out because you will love it.  Promise.  

This past week was spent with all three children at VBS camp which meant it was also my first week of summer without them home in the morning.  It really is amazing how fast I can get things done when they are not here.  I am also happy to say that my Oldest’s face is looking SO MUCH BETTER than it did Saturday when he fell.  I have to thank all the people with a million suggestions on what we should do because I did them all and it has worked wonders.  We have now moved to the “Vitamin E overdose and suncreen” stage to avoid scars but he is feeling SO MUCH BETTER about it and for that, I am thrilled.

With the weekend here we will be having a BBQ with friends Friday night and then off to the Walk Disney Studios on Saturday for what is looking to be a really fun event.  I am also beginning to get into vacation prep mode with our family trip only a week and a half away.  YEA!  


Have a fabulous weekend and don’t forget to enter this Burke Williams Giveaway!


A giveaway!  Finally!  I know, it has been a long time.

Today’s giveaway is brought to you by Burke Williams, the original urban day spa.  The facilities incorporate the finest elements of a world-class European spa while their professional therapist ensure you will not be disappointed but rejuvenated and relaxed.  Last week I was invited in for a little pampering and of course I said yes.

 With countless hours being spent in the sun this summer, my skin has been extremely dry and it was time to give it a little love. I selected their Nourishing facial to help battle the elements.  It was beyond expectations.  My face spent an hour and twenty minutes  being treated with seaweed extracts, citrus antioxidants, and aromatherapy.  The 3-layer masque was unbelievable and at the end of it all, my skin felt entirely different.  It was just what the doctor ordered and my dull, over-dried face looked refreshed and rejuvenated.  It was fantastic.  Add in all the amenities of the spa, a cozy robe and some relaxation and it could not have been a better evening.  Now it is your turn.

Burke Williams has generously offered to giveaway not one, but two 3-day spa passes to the Burke Williams of your choice (they have locations in San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Monica, Torrance, Sherman Oaks, West Hollywood, Pasadena, Orange and Mission Viejo).  These passes allow the winners to use the spa amenities for free, three different days.  These passes will also provide 20% off all services booked the day of the visit.  This is the perfect opportunity to spend a relaxing day alone or to try out one of their services you have been eying for 20% off (you can view the  treatment menu here).

Here is how to enter:
