Ahhhh!!! Spa Party!
I've been eating Boca Burgers for years. Although I'm not a vegetarian, I actually don't like cooking meat very much. Boca burgers are really easy to cook so I always have a pack in my freezer. So I was very excited when Boca Foods invited me to a very fun party for Mommy Bloggers at Voda Spa in West Hollywood. Getting some time away and for myself was such a blast. Boca Foods is all about promoting Balanced Living, especially for busy moms. They are currently running a contest called The BOCA Balanced Living Challenge where you can enter to win $5,000 to fulfill your healthy living goal! Boca and Voda treated us to some yummy non-alcoholic cocktails and a buffet of dishes all containing Boca products. My favorite was the Boca Sliders, yummy mini-burgers. Next we were treated to a variety of treatments at Voda. The owner, Leon made our visit extra special and made sure we had more yummy drinks served to us while we received our spa treatments. I received a mani/pedi from Jamie and a massage from Kim. The spa manager (also named Kim) gave us a tour of the facility. I can't believe how beautiful the spa is. A perfect oasis in the city. There is an outdoor patio, indoor pool, elegant locker room, treatment rooms, a restaurant, a bar and an amazing VIP room where I participated in a session lead by a Yogi who taught us how to incorporate relaxation into our day. I really loved the tips she provided as I almost never seem to take even a few minutes to just relax and rejuvenate myself. Almost everything she taught us is doable at your desk! I can't wait to get back to Voda to try more of their services and amenities. I'm also inspired by all the great recipes I learned that incorporate Boca products. All the recipes are available on the Boca Foods web site. The evening really left me invigorated and rededicated to finding the perfect balance for me.
