A Trio of Treats to Try!
Merle Norman Montrose (2341 Honolulu Ave.) is tempting us again with a whole new spring color collection chock full of pretty pastels! Their latest gift, with purchase of two items, comes in a generous seafoam oil cloth cosmetic bag with four goodies inside. Included are the brand new Pink Grapefruit Body Butter that will wake up your skin and leave it soft and fresh, new eye shadow primer that keeps your shadow from fading, “Bare Necessity” eye shadow, and AHA Intensive complex, a rich serum. See Kris and Kim to learn the latest smoky eye applications, too!
Have you ever heard of a white éclair? Somebody should have thought of this a long time ago! Leave it to Gio’s Baguettes & More (3805 Ocean View Blvd.) to fill an airy éclair with freshly made whipped cream and icing it with white chocolate! It’s the perfect accompaniment to their famous Illy coffee. While you’re there, check out the Nutella strawberry crepes with bananas and chocolate drizzle. You can now follow Gio’s on twitter @giosmontrose. Cool!
One of the best views in Montrose can be had at a cozy table on the patio of Portobello’s Italian & Mediterranean Cuisine (2235 Honolulu Ave.). Sometimes only a bowl of rigatoni bolognese will do, especially when it’s sprinkled with fresh basil and grated parmesan cheese. Yum! Portobello’s is also known for its mouth watering osso bucco. I hear customers rave about it. Call (818) 957-7524 to reserve your table! Thanks for reading about the latest Montrose shop & dine finds!
