Everyone knows that I love a good brunch. In fact, I tend to believe that there is nothing really quite better than brunch in the whole world. Brunch could solve a lot of problems if people just let it.

Brunch with bottomless mimosas on the other hand, could bring about world peace.

This past Sunday I had the ultimate pleasure of not only enjoying a fantastic brunch at Eva Restaurant complete with bottomless mimosas, but thanks to my deal hunting and Bloomspot, we were able to enjoy it at half price…

Yes, the stars truly collided on this one to create a brunch-going masterpiece. We simply must do it again, dhhaling.

great expectations: working for the weekend…

9 Sep

It is officially our first Friday back from ‘Summer Fridays’ at the office, which means that today will draaaaaggggggg on and on and on and on and on and on and on and (you get it it…)

Luckily, I have a few things to look forward to that will  put a little europa in my life.

1. Free meal: For graduation a family friend gifted me a fabulous, catered, 5 course dinner for 4. Tonight I am looking forward to redeeming it and cracking open a bottle of crisp pinot grigio with my roomie and some new friends.

2. Cultured Saturday: Lunch and a pedicure with a girlfriend, followed by an evening play is bound to relax and rejuvenate me.

3. Lazy Sunday: Bottomless mimosa brunch at Eva Restaurant with one of my most fabulous friends (a GREAT deal from Bloomspot!). What more can a girl ask for?

Europa is all around you, you just have to seek it out afterall…

morning musings: deals

25 Aug

When I have some down time at my desk  mornings are spent combing through all of the daily deals that came into my inbox. It’s kind of like extreme couponing…but better because you don’t end up with 50,000 rolls of toilet paper in a special shed you had to build for said toilet paper.

It is rare that I make a purchase (that one’s for you, dad), but when I do, it is always for something that I wanted but just couldn’t afford at full price.

My favorite so far has been my One-Month Unlimited Bar Method deal from Daily Candy Deals. Not only was it half price, but it has essentially paid for itself as a booty and confidence booster combo.

Two deals I’m eyeing now that I’m not sure I can pass up…

1. Repetto ballet flats from Ideeli: If you recall, they were featured on the French Vogue 10 Wardrobe Essentials last week….Click this link to access

2. LA Epicurean Festival: Unfortunately, I’ll be on my way to the VMA’s (!!!) while this is going on at the Sofitel Hotel, but for all you foodies out there- make sure to get your tickets to this fest now, Bloomspot is offering them at a fantastic discount!

Now you know- next time you need a haircut, massage, facial, dog training  or new, hot flats, daily deals are the way to go.
