Ecookie & LoveBirdsLA Host a Must-Attend Event & Major Giveaway
If you don't yet know about the Venice boutique Ecookie, you're really missing out. It's without a doubt our #1 need-a-last-minute-outfit-to-just-about-anything-for-under-$100 spot, and we particularly love it for sourcing date-night looks. Tomorrow night, is hosting a shindig from 6-10 p.m. which will include sushi, cocktails, dessert, free manicures and designer nail wraps from Nail Couture LA, and a styling session complete with makeup, hair, and a mini-photo shoot (best photo wins an entire ensemble from Ecookie!). The event is meant to celebrate the launch of LoveBirdsLA clutches, which are adorable, handmade bags inspired by founders Kim and Melsa's travels through Peru, Thailand, and the Philippines. To get you in the mood for tomorrow night, we're giving away 3 LoveBirdsLA clutches + bracelets -- all you have to do to be *entered to win is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us which city you'd most like to visit in the entire world.
Kim and Melsa suggest travel through Central/South America and Southeast Asia as it's incredibly broke-girl-friendly -- 4 or 5 star hotels are generally $80 to $100 per night, and dinner entrees rarely exceed $15. Here are their top 3 money-saving travel tips:
1. Stay in places that include kitchenettes, and stock up on snacks/drinks/meals from local markets.
2. Cook at least 1 meal per day.
3. Always negotiate. ALWAYS. You can negotiate the prices on tours, taxis, retail purchases, etc.
Good luck with the giveaway, and we'll see you tomorrow night! Don't forget to RSVP to EcookieEvents@gmail.com.
* A winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, August 1st.
