Last weekend, I was lucky enough to spend a whole day with some of my favorite people – family in from the west coast, my best guy, friends in the neighborhood, and local business people. One of the places where this all happened was at the Fall in Love with Astoria event at Astoria Park Wine and Spirits. Tastes of sparkling wines were available (both wines I tried were excellent), there was live jazz music, and the folks from Rejuvenate were there giving some makeovers, sharing samples, and selling products they carry.

Well, I tried something and absolutely loved it – I heart it, you might say. I sampled the Mélange luxe body creme and just fell in love with the scent – mimosa blossom & grapefruit – and how soft it made my skin feel. I bought some right then and there. It is a thicker cream than I usually use, but it’s still light. Wonderful stuff, and priced at $17 per 4.4oz jar.

The event itself was lovely. I tasted some sparkly wines – the Cava was pleasantly dry and bit yeasty, and the sparkling Torrontés was sweeter and slightly floral. I liked them both. My family ended up buying a bottle of the Torrontés and we enjoyed it at dinner on Monday night.

Here are a few photos from that afternoon at the Fall in Love with Astoria event:

There was a jazz singer there, too.

Thanks to all who made this such a nice afternoon!
