Meet the Sirens~ Our One Year Anniversary!

We have so much to celebrate! Aside from welcoming in a brand new year, we also recently rang in our one-year anniversary over here at Sirens & Scoundrels!

Your Weekend Hit List ~ May 6th~8th

In LA, the first week of May also means it’s the unofficial first week of Summer.

Once a month, the Griffith Observatory holds a free space talk. Not just a talk—but a fun, lively, often hilarious roundtable of respected scientists (seriously, we had no idea scientists could be so funny) breaking down all the latest space news in a way that we …
