Explore the Natural World at the Discovery Cube Orange County

October 7, 2015 1:09 pm

Science lovers in Santa Ana love Discovery Cube Orange County for its wide variety of hands-on exhibits that make learning lots of fun. While this bright, modern museum is great for children and families, it’s so interesting that there is something for people of all ages.

Start your visit with a trip to the Rocket Lab, where you’ll experience blast-off from a Boeing RS-68 rocket ship and even launch your own rockets in the Fuel Station. Next, head over to the Planetary Research Station, which enables you to view the Earth’s weather patterns on a suspended, animated globe model. The Dino Quest exhibit will make you feel like a real paleontologist as you dig for dinosaur bones, while the helicopter tour offers a view from the above of the nearby Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. After you’ve toured all of the exciting exhibits, unwind with a short feature movie at Discovery Cube’s 4D movie theater.

Something’s Afoot: Clever Shoe Organization Ideas

September 23, 2015 9:40 am

It’s not uncommon to have shoes strewn about your entire apartment, from the doorway where you first slip them off to the bedroom where you try on dozens of pairs before deciding on one. With these smart tips, however, you can finally create a system for organizing all of those sneakers, heels, sandals and slides — and they’re a whole lot more interesting than your traditional shoe rack.

  1. Add shelves. If you’re particularly proud of your shoe collection, show them off by displaying your most beautiful pairs on shelves stacked from floor to ceiling. You can even use a bookcase if you have one.
  2. Use photo ledges. For high heels, purchase photo ledges from your local craft shop or home decor store and dangle pairs of shoes from them by the heels.
  3. Keep them in their boxes. If you want to keep your shoes protected while in storage, save their boxes (or purchase new shoe storage boxes). Attach a photo of the pair inside to the exterior of the box to make finding a specific pair a breeze.
  4. Use antique items. If your home decor style is a bit more rustic, use an antique ladder or an old apple crate as shoe storage in any room.
  5. Utilize under-bed space. For out-of-season pairs, store them in flat plastic storage bins under the bed.
