Los Angeles home
A beautiful and quasi-Mediterranean house built in the 1920's by Ms. January Jones for $1,020,000 in the year 2009. The deed was actually signed in late July.
Location: The property is located on Ambrose Avenue in the Los Feliz area which is present in Los Angeles, California.
Accommodation: This Mediterranean villa boasts a living space of over 2,200 square feet. Though, this is not very large but the master bedroom suite is large and beautifully done. All the three bedrooms of the house are located on the second floor. There are 2.5 bathrooms. The home also comes with a long driveway which leads to a 2-car garage. The living room is very homely with a neat little fireplace for the wintry or romantic nights.
Features: The landscaping around the house blends beautifully in to the picturesque settings of the street. There is a variegated garden and outdoor play area around the house. All the rooms and living spaces are large with high ceilings. French doors and windows punctuate the structure adding visual relief. The garage sits as a separate building in need of some refurbishing. Probably, a second floor guesthouse can be added. The flooring in the home is all wooden which is a good choice to keep it warm in winters and cool in summers.
Neighborhood: Ambrose Avenue is one of the most picturesque streets in the locality. As far as 'celebrities' are concerned, Ms.Jones might be the only one in street but the Los Feliz area hosts many celebrities like Kristen Bell, Megan Fox, Leonardo Di Caprio, Robert Pattinson and had even been home to the legendary Walt Disney.
Land Rover LR2
January Jones was one of the first celebrities in Hollywood to have purchased the new Range Rover Evoque. The crossover SUV provides the Mad Men actress with plenty of space inside the cabin as well as superior off roading capabilities when she wants to get away from the pace of life in tinsel town. The vehicle is powered by a Ford-derived turbocharged, direct injection, four cylinder 2.0-liter Ecoboost engine that outputs 270 pound-feet of torque and 240 horsepower. Apart from being a mighty presence on the road, the Evoque also provides the starlet with a breezy 0-60 mph dash time of about 7.0 seconds.
Before she got herself a swanky new Evoque, January Jones drove around in a Land Rover LR2. The car-based luxury crossover SUV is noted for its maneuverability in urban environments and retains Land Rover’s superior off-road ability. Offered in a single trim, the pint sized LR2 comes in an all-wheel drive configuration and is powered by a inline six-cylinder 2-liter engine that outputs 234 pound-feet of torque and 230 horsepower.
January Jones held her baby shower in the famous Malibu beach resort in June 2011. Several of her friends and a few Hollywood celebrities like Christina Hendricks attended the event. The actress is a frequent visitor to Malibu and has been photographed many times taking a casual stroll by the beach side. A trip to the beach resort normally lasts one or two days.
Location: The 21 mile wide Malibu beach is situated in Los Angeles County in California, USA.
Accommodation: There aren't too many hotels in Malibu. Mostly there are small inns, but there are also 5 star hotels like Hotel Bel-Air, The Ritz-Carlton, Oceana Beach Club Hotel and Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in the price range of ‘$550 to $1,000” for a night’s stopover. Budget hotels like Travelers Beach Inn, Sunset Inn Gardena and Americas Best Value Inn Oxnard-Port Hueneme offer rooms on a per day basis at cheap rates of ‘$60 to $85’.
Main Attractions: Malibu completely justifies it’s tag as “the Land of the Sand and Sun” and is dotted with scores of fantastic beaches. The sandy beaches are full of people tanning themselves under the balmy sun and playing sports like “Beach Volleyball”. The rocky beaches offer the perfect setting to indulge in aquatic sports like surfing and diving. Dozens of restaurants and shacks situated by the beach-side offer a great variety of fresh seafood and drinks. Artistically inclined tourists can visit museums like the Roman County Estate and Malibu Lagoon Museum which house a rich collection of ancient Roman and Chumash Indian artifacts respectively. The Malibu Family Wines vineyard offers a rare opportunity to witness the wine making process from scratch. Scores of souvenir shops dotting the coastline offer a great chance to scoop up items at bargain rates.

A Day Made Better
A Day Made Better is a non-profit organization that raises funds from celebrities and the general public and donates to school teachers. According to a survey, teachers spend approximately $1,000 of their own money for supplies for their students that places an undue burden on them financially. The program organizes a one-day annual event supporting their Adopt-A-Classroom program which donates $1,000 worth of school supplies to 1,000 teachers and helps teacher focus on teaching instead of worrying about supplies for their students. January Jones participates in the event every October to show her support for the cause.
Founded in 2001, Oceana is a global organization that focuses on conservation of oceans and marine life. A long time affiliate of the organization, January Jones has traveled to the Bahamas to assist with research on nurse and lemon sharks. She has been featured in a number of public service announcements for the organization including one called “Scared for Sharks”. Jones has also taken part in shark research at the Bimini Biological Field Station in the Caribbean.
