Hodge Podge and 3M Giveaway

This post is a hodgepodge of things I have done or loved in the past month (Aug/Sept). I am also doing a giveaway on this post.  And who doesn’t want post-it notes, flag-it pens/highlighters and Scotch Brite’s new botanical disinfecting wipes? No, you don’t need to follow me on Twitter or like anything. Subscribing to this blog would be great but not necessary.

CAKE Cake balls by Cake ball Love. My birthday was last week and had these delicious banana bread cake balls dipped in white chocolate. Delish. Order ahead because Pam is very popular.

SPA Rockefeller Center for the Anti-Aging.   I melt away every time I get a facial with Kim. It is an absolute treat. It is not just a facial  you get  a mini-massage during treatment and you also get a mini-oxygen treatment as well. Last time I got a facial, I got a scrub that smelled like cake.  There is one that smells like pumpkins too. She is located in Kensington Adams exit right off the 15 Freeway.

EATS  The Trails.   This restaurant recently remodeled due to being on Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network. Portions are big and they offer gluten-free food options although the pancakes my daughter ordered weren’t a part of that menu. Watch for their episode Sept. 21 on the Food Network.

Bice. True Italian. The portions are just enough and their drinks are superb. A great place for a date night. I had the potato gnocci with king crab, corn and asparagus in a light cream sauce. I wasn’t allowed to take pictures of my food (so says my husband).

LOVE My new Filtrete Water Station. I love that the mouth of the bottle is wide enough to put cut up lemons, oranges, cucumbers in the water. Now you can have the water they make at the spa at home. I am also saving money not buying the multiple plastic bottles of water from the grocery store (a plus on the environment).

GIVEAWAY 3M has given me this box of goodies to giveaway to a lucky reader.

All you need to do is tell me your favorite thing you have done lately and your favorite number that hasn’t been taken (Leave a comment). I will pick a winner in one week (Thursday, September 22 at 10pm) through random.org. Prize will be sent directly to winner from 3M’s representatives.

Good luck!

The winner is


*Disclosure- Filtrete was sent to me after I told them I loved the idea and was going to buy one myself. Rockefeller is a client, but I wrote this on my own. I truly love her facials.
