My Mom’s Night Out with Aquafina FlavorSplash

CIMG0222 Last Thursday, I was juggling housework, blogging and my daughter all while trying to fix myself up until my husband finally arrived home from work.  It was our 5-year wedding anniversary, but I wasn’t gearing up for that, I was primping for the Aquafina FlavorSplash event located at Morimoto in Philadelphia.  Meh, we’d celebrate on the weekend, anyway.  This was more important!

Surprisingly, I arrived right on time.  Thankfully the traffic goes in the opposite direction (out of Philly), at this time of day.  That’s not to say that there were no maniacs on the road.  (Do you ever feel like you’re in a game of paperboy when you’re on the road?)

Mom Central put together this amazing Mom’s Night Out event for Aquafina, and I was so pleased to have been invited.  The reason for the event was to educate local mom bloggers about Aquafina’s latest and greatest product, FlavorSplash.  Held in the swanky downtown Philadelphia restaurant, Morimoto, this was sure to be a good time.   CIMG0220

There were no more than twenty bloggers present, which made for an intimate gathering in a private loft overlooking the dining room.  We all had the opportunity to try the six FlavorSplash flavored waters by Aquafina, including Grape, Wild Berry, Strawberry Kiwi, Raspberry, Lemon and Peach Mango.  I buy their spring water regularly and when I tried these flavored versions with zero calories, I was hooked.  My favorites?  Strawberry Kiwi and Wild Berry, hands down.

The Japanese cuisine was great, as were the cocktails.  My lychee martini, minus the lychee, is pictured above.  I had the best time mingling with familiar faces, meeting new friends and talking with the Mom Central and Aquafina representatives. 

Jo-Lynne, Me, Michelle (Mom Central), Mel, and Sarah.

We all received complementary goody bags containing Aquafina product samples and coupons.  A great big ‘thank you’ to MomCentral and Aquafina for putting together a fabulous event.  I don’t know about the other ladies, but I sure needed the ‘time out’.

I wrote this post after attending an event sponsored by Aquafina FlavorSplash and Mom Central. I received FlavorSplash goodies and a gift card as a thank you for posting.
