SLS Jose Andres Restaurant Review

2 weeks, 2x @ Jose Andres Restaurants @ SLS.  I’m the luckiest girl on the Westside.  Jose Andres is the perfect place to take your date, or just an awesome place to meet up some friends for dinner.  The menu is very eclectic, with an endless assortment of modern and traditional tapas.  The cocktail menu also has a wide variety of yummy elixirs to choose from, however the Magic Mojito is by far the most popular drink there.

Parking:  Valet only

Price range per person(w/1 cocktail):  $100-$150

I must say that everything on the Jose Andres menu is fantastic, and here are some of my favorites.

Oysters served in a cute tin.  Very fresh and light flavor.

Eggs Nuovo.  This one is hard to explain, but it tastes like a fresh omelette, once you mix up the potato puree and egg mixture inside.

DIY Project: Paint it blue, call it new!

So, finally!!!  We’ve officially started the DIY (or have someone else do it, if you’re a cheater like me) projects at home.  It took awhile to decide on a color for the guest room, but I ran over to Home Depot and had the guy mix up something extra special for me.  Looks like it’s time to decorate the wall with some art, or maybe even some vinyl decals.  Stay tuned for updates!

Here it is…

Hooray! Our DIY Project Begins…

After flipping through dozens of wallpaper sample books, we’ve finally decided on something for our master bedroom.  The color theme will be: purple, black, silver, and white.  I’ve also included some pieces that we may incorporate, to transform our space into a stylish bedroom.  Total budget:  $1000

When times get tough..

it’s time to start robbing the piggy or Hello Kitty bank and run to your nearest Coinstar machine! I totally cashed out and walked away with $45.45.  Unlike chancing it in Vegas, you’re a winner every time!

Now here’s a fierce lunch box!

Was browsing around Whole Foods and came across this intimating lunch box. First thought, FIERCE!

Hahaha, I think lunch boxes back in the day, consisted of super hero characters and Care Bears. It was oh so innocent!

REeeeeooooow!
