Nutella Martinis on a Saturday Night


Jamie and Bren

Armani Exchange blouse, Forever 21 skirt & bag, Michael Michael Kors pumps, Giorgio Armani sunglasses, La Mer watch





I met up with Bren from Chasing Beauty and Jamie from Glam Latte on Saturday for nutella martinis (upon Jamie's suggestion) and it was a blast! These girls are even more lovely and sweet in person and we're already planning our next date. If you live in LA and want to join us, let us know! I had never before tried a nutella martini and it was every bit as delicious as it sounds. I'd strongly recommend stopping into Cafe Ugo for one if you're ever in the Culver City area.

FUN!!!

I saw your picture on twitter over the weekend and replied with an offer to trade yours for mine (a plain ol' mojito), because yours just looked waaay better:).

I am glad you got to meet other bloggers! I've yet to do so myself, but would love to- including you! :)

Jamie said...

Val I had so much fun!! And those shoes were such a good score! Can't wait for our next one! Maybe the 23rd or the 6th? Let me know what your schedule is looking like and we'll make it happen!!

Valerie,

I had such a great time chatting it up with you and Jamie! The nutella martinis were a total bonus! I thought about our weird waitress today. Made me laugh at how horrible she was! She should NOT be a server! LOL! Can't wait until we can do it again!

Btw, your whole outfit head to toe was perfection! You seriously could not get any cuter if you tried!
