The Rink In Downtown Burbank Is Set for November Debut


The holiday season in Downtown Burbank will be celebrated with the arrival of the first-ever outdoor skating rink, which will be located adjacent to City Hall at Third Street and Orange Grove.  The 4,100 square foot rink will accommodate up to 165 skaters per session, and will remain open for six weeks from Friday, November 22 through January 5, 2014.  Hours are set for 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily and until 11:00 PM on Friday and Saturday nights, delivering holiday cheer for residents and visitors alike.


Located in the heart of Downtown Burbank and just steps from San Fernando Boulevard, The Rink will provide a festive getaway for customers, employees and families out for seasonal fun.  Themed entertainment, twinkling lights and joyful music will add to the holiday spirit.  Before or after a 90 minute session, skaters are invited to explore hundreds of shops and eateries decked out for the season. Admission is $10.00, and skate rentals are $3.00.


While The Rink is in operation, Downtown Burbank’s weekly Farmer’s Market will move temporarily across the street to the parking lot behind the Community Services building. Convenient street access will be from Orange Grove and Olive Avenues.

NEW St. Ives® Fresh Hydration Lotions Giveaway Opportunity!

CitrusVitC  naturallyindulgent  StIves-6p5oz-SprayLotion-OatmealShea

NEW St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion is a continuous spray lotion that moisturizes without that heavy lotion feel. Many women know that lotions make their skin look and feel great; however, they dislike the thick and heavy lotion feel. This innovative technology delivers a 360° even spray at every any angle that moisturizes effectively, while feeling
light and fresh on skin, never heavy or greasy.

I received the set of three (pictured above) and love them! What I love the best is they do not feel greasy at all and my favorite scent is the St. Ives® Naturally Indulgent Coconut  Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion. It not only smells good though! It leaves skin silky & soft and contains the following natural ingredients: coconut milk, orchid extract and 100% natural moisturizers (glycerin, shea butter). The St. Ives® Naturally Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter Fresh Hydration Lotion is the best one to soothe dry skin! This is also a hit in our house! The  St. Ives® Energizing Citrus & Vitamin C Fresh Hydration Lotion leaves skin feeling energized and refreshed. They are all available at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide. Retail price is $5.99-$7.99 each.
