Yoga Brunch Cruise
Do you like yoga, brunch, and a cruise? It took me less than 5 minutes to find and enter an Instagram giveaway, and I won tickets to a free yoga brunch cruise! The ticket was $100, so 5 minutes of work for entering a giveaway is not bad at all!

Are you excited about this week? Not only is it Halloween, but it a start of a new moon, which means new beginnings. For this week expect free podcast tapings, Aveeno® Oat Mask samples, finance classes about budgeting and tax strategies, Halloween events, Sony photo walk, and comedy shows. It is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so expect panels about breast cancer too.
