First I want to announce the winner of the Perricone giveaway. Drum roll....... Congrat to The Beauty File.
I feel very fortunate to live so close to the beach. One of my favorite things to do on any given Sunday is to have brunch by the beach so I can take in the beautiful ocean in front of me. Also it feels so great to have cool ocean breeze in my face as I chow down on brunch.
As a surprise, I took BF to a new place he had not visited before. Since it was so sunny out, I had to wear my new Calypso yellow silk dress. I got this several months ago but had not a chance to wear it yet. I got Savvy Sis and Savvy Niece the same dress but in different colors so we wouldn't accidentally wear the same thing. I know I am a corky auntie but I think it will be sorta cute to have auntie and me outfits. Savvy Sis had a blast with the mommy and me outfits.
A gal pal took me to Sapphire Laguna Beach for my b-day last month. I really enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Since BF and I are somewhat of a foodie, this is a place which I think he will enjoy. I was right! I ordered the 5 item bento box to get a variety of choices. However, I think I will pass next time around. Although I liked my choice, it wasn't something to write home about. For $25, I was not impressed with the bento box even if I did get a glass of Mimosa and a cup of coffee as part of the package. On my second visit, service was not as great but I believed they were short staffed that day. I was not happy because on the one hand I wanted to be nice but it was frustrating when I had to wait for things or that 2nd spoon (which never showed up).
BF ordered Kobe burger. I liked his entree a lot more. I took half of his garlic fries. Even though I was not ecstatic over my own choice, I would definitely go back to Sapphire to try other entrees. What would you do if service is not to up standard but you know the restaurant is under staff?
