Brunch at 100 Wines

I've got a recommendation for all you brunch fans! You've got to check out 100 Wines in Hillcrest. This jewel is another wonderful Cohn restaurant, I love that group. I thought the space was beautiful and the menu was diverse. As soon as we finished up our meal, I was texting my girlfriends about this place, noting the $1 mimosas and scrumptious food. Enjoy!

This patio has so much character. It's the perfect place to enjoy $1 juicy mimosas or the $2 shabby pink champagne, my favorite. 

Mmmmmm, a delicious and gorgeously plated croque madam. Each forkful was dipped in mustard and enjoyed. I'll be ordering this again.

Cinnamon rolls baked fresh to order, butter cinnamon swirl, vanilla icing, and candied pecans. You can add bruleed bananas, gelato, or nutella. This was fantastic. My little boy gobbled it up. 

Osso buco Eggs Benedict, pork osso buco, Tabasco hollandaise sauce, English muffins, with mixed greens. I've never had Tabasco hollandaise. It was outstanding. It was a nice bright note to the creamy sauce.  

Apple butter hot cakes topped with tart cherry preserves and a side of maple sausage. My friend commented that these were the best pancakes he had ever eaten. Wow! They were really good. I was in love with the tart cherry preserves. Normally I don't care for fruit on my pancakes but this, this was wonderful. You've got to try it!

Oscar de la Renta and Beats by Dre at GTM

I've been hearing about GTM for a while now and that I should go because it's where Costco sends their extras or returns. And you all know how I love my Costco. So finally I made the trip. There are three locations in San Diego; Lemon Grove, Santee, and El Cajon.  We visited the Santee location and were pretty happy with what we found. While I did recognize tons of the products from Costco, I also saw this bag from the Target Neiman Marcus collaboration. More specifically though, it's made by Oscar de la Renta.

It's pretty, right? The price is good too. When it was debuted a year ago, the full price was $59.99. Today at GTM, it's $14.99. 

The real reason we went, was to look at a pair of Beats headphones. Normally these ones cost $200 but GTM is selling them for approximately $136. GTM also has a coupon today for 30% off electronics. (They release a coupon on their website every Wednesday.) That would have been a great deal except they aren't wireless. So I had to leave them at the store. If you're looking for a pair of Beats, you should go take a look and see if they're the ones you like.

The Honest Company at Costco

This is at the Mission Valley location. I'm sure that they have it others too. 

I've been eyeing this product, The Honest Company's baby shampoo and body wash, at Costco for a little while. I pulled the trigger and bought it when I saw the price was reduced to a low $11.99. The sign states that the discount is good through February 9, 2014.

Listen up though. Should you miss the sale, it's still such a bargain at $14.99. You're getting two 17 ounce bottles of product. On The Honest Company's website, one 8.5 ounce bottle is $9.95. See? Run to Costco and get this great product!
