Totally Awesome Facialist Lead
Bonnie Burgess’ vision, the owner and skin care therapist of Cella Skin Care, is to marry the effective result-oriented approach of a skin care clinic with the healing, restorative, holistic feel of a luxury day spa in perfect balance. Her goal is to have each client leave feeling restored in body, mind, and spirit. Each client has very individual goals for the treatment of their skin and it is her commitment to meet these needs & exceed their expectations. She offers many different facials including Lactic Acid Peel & Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion. I HIGHLY recommend!

Every Lunch Matters Provides Food Vouchers To Hungry Students In LBUSD
My stepsister, Mary Sramek, founded Every Lunch Matters when she realized students were going hungry in LBUSD. The policy of the district is to restrict students who do not have money or credit to a milk & a piece of fruit. She was determined to make it easy to help hungry kids at school. Your donation can be made to your school of choice. If your choice has received enough donations to satisfy the needs of the hungry students at that particular site for a month, your donation will be redirected to the “most needy” category. 100% of your tax deductible donations go towards food vouchers for hungry students. Partnership opportunities available. Email EveryLunchMattersLB@gmail.com.
What’s Going On With Your Finances?
Don’t waste money ignoring finances. Review them at least monthly or hire a year-round professional who won’t charge for every minute & question. Find a team that covers each other instead of putting your business on hold, that responds to e-mails & calls quickly. It’s a necessity, not a luxury! Money spent on financial review is an investment in success & peace of mind. Contact One Source Services for a free financial health assessment & take control of your money.
