Find Something New to Read at Leigh’s Favorite Books

September 2, 2015 9:34 am

When Leigh's Favorite Books first opened in 2004, its entire inventory consisted of a relatively small collection of gently used and new books. Now 10-plus years later, the inventory has grown significantly. It numbers somewhere around 40,000, a testament to the dedication of Leigh's staff and the loyalty of its customers.

As online retailers continue to put more and more independent book stores out of business, Leigh's Favorite Books continues to thrive thanks to its genial and well-versed staff, and, in recent years, its sister store Bookasaurus. Located right next door, Bookasaurus specializes in literature for little ones. Beyond the books, this colorful shop also offers toys and games that will both educate and entertain your youngster. So whether you're looking for something new to read yourself or a beginner book for your child, you can find it at Leigh's Favorite Books and Bookasaurus.

Beautify Your Bathroom With These Easy Tips

August 26, 2015 10:11 am

Did you know that by adding a few homey touches, you can make your bathroom feel much more luxurious? Here are a few ways to transform your rental bath into a spa-quality retreat.

  • Add fluffy towels. Investing in a new set of thick, plush bath towels is one of the best things that you can do for your bathroom. If you don’t have a set color scheme, classic hotel white always looks great.
  • Incorporate baskets. Add attractive wicker baskets or wooden crates to clear away clutter and add a soft, rustic effect.
  • Add fresh flowers. Don’t overlook the bathroom when it comes to greenery. Add a vase of fresh flowers or a low-light plant to help clean the air.
  • Add floating shelves. If you still need additional storage, add small floating shelves along a bare wall.
  • Light candles. Finally, light some great smelling candles along the bathtub or toilet and settle in for a relaxing bubble bath.

Saigon Seafood Harbor Restaurant: Dim Sum and Then Some in Sunnyvale

August 19, 2015 9:55 am

Chinese food fans will enjoy Saigon Seafood Harbor Restaurant, where wait staff bring carts of piping hot food around to each table. The best place to sit here is along the widest aisles, ideally as close as possible to the kitchen in the far left corner of the main dining room. That’s where the food carts come from.

Regulars say most of the food here is good, but they particularly recommend the xiao long bao, the shu mai, the shrimp roll, the salted egg yolk bun, and the baked taro buns. The taro buns are popular and can be hard to snag, so you may want to ask for them specifically. On the other hand, don’t be afraid to turn down a dish you don’t want!

Saigon Seafood Harbor’s large dining room is perfect for big groups, but it’s a good idea to arrive at this popular restaurant early, preferably before 11:45 a.m.
