In December, I wrote about my newest iPhone accessory, a retro handset by Native Union. Since ordering the phone, I’ve seen it all over the place.

Double Goose Pop-Up Shop

Thursday, November 17th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

We had a REALLY nice run this week; we spent a few days this week in the 60’s! That won’t be the case for the weekend and probably the next couple of months. Now is a good a time as any to stock up on some winter gear and Reed Space is helping you do just that.

Next Tuesday, November 22, 2011, Double Goose returns to the Reed Space Annex.


Prices are steep if you’re on a budget but the quality is remarkable.

$19 for $40 to Spend at Mojito

Monday, October 17th, 2011 at 12:40 pm

A few months ago I wrote about my trip to Mojito, a Cuban restaurant in my neighborhood. I found a deal where I spent $20 on a voucher that allowed me to spend $40 on food at the restaurant. That trip took me back to the days where Mojito was the only neighborhood restaurant I wanted to eat at.

Well, if you’ve been waiting to try Mojito out, now’s your chance.

dscn0397wtmk is offering a $19 voucher which allows you to spend $40 at the Clinton-Hill/Fort Greene restaurant. The deal ends this Saturday, October 22, 2011 so hurry. To purchase this deal, click here.

Thanks mom for tipping me off on this one 😉

$5 Kickboxing Boot Camp

Sunday, October 16th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

I normally get so many “daily deal” e-mails a day that I started deleting them before even opening them. I’m glad that this past Friday, I decided to open one of ’em.

I purchased a deal for 67% off of Kickboxing Boot Camp classes in the city. For a quick preview of what to expect, check out the video below.

I went to my first class on Saturday and it was well worth it. Because of Coach Nelson, my ass and arms are killing me right now.

To purchase your Lifebooker deal, click here. Move quickly. This deal expires tomorrow, Monday, October 17, 2011.

And FYI, you don’t need your mat. If you visit the Learn2Box website, it says that you’ll need a yoga mat for the class. This was the case when classes were held in Central Park. They’re now held in a gym on 30th and Broadway.

For more info on location, visit Lifebooker here, or look below…

2011 Birthday Freebies

Monday, October 3rd, 2011 at 11:10 am

Happy Birthday to ME!! Well… almost. My birthday isn’t until Thursday but a few companies have been helping to plan my birthday feasts for the last two weeks.


For the last 2 years, I’ve done “Birthday Freebie” posts and every year, I find more stores/companies that give away items to their customers or e-mail registrants on their birthday. Instead of doing a long, drawn out list, I’ve compiled the regulars with a few newbies and what they’re offering up for WONDERFUL LIBRAS birthday-havers everywhere.

Moe’s Southwest Grill – Complimentary Entree

Benihana – Free Meal (unfortunately, the Manhattan location is closed for renovations so there will be no Hibachi for me this year)

Brasserie 8 1/2 (Patina Group) – $50 off a meal of $50 OR more (Patina Group restaurants offering $50 off include Brasserie 8 1/2 and 6 others. Two more Patina Group restaurants offer $30 off.  For my [very] brief review of Brasserie 8 1/2, click here.)

Red Lobster – $5 off a two-person meal (CHEDDAR BAY BISUITS, HERE I COME!!)

Starbucks – Free Birthday Beverage (and other free promo items throughout the year; I got a post card about 2 weeks ago for a free bagel w/spread)


Panera Bread – Free Pastry or Sweet
Cold Stone Creamery – BOGO Free Creation (in years past, there was no “BOGO,” you would just get a free Like-It Creation)
Baskin Robbins – Free ice cream scoop

SHOPPING – $25 credit
Rent the Runway – $20 credit
Daffy’s – 15% off (and 10% when you first register)
DSW – $5 off certificate


Sephora – Varying free items (last year it was mascara and eye make-up, this year it’s shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath)

Aside from finding more freebies every year, I also find more Libras (which in case you haven’t figure out, I am). Happy Birthday to all of the Libras celebrating another year on earth includinggggggg:

My bestie Raeana R.
Deadstock Ric
My baby cousin “Little” Jr.
My older cousin “Big” Jr.
My downsouth cousin Rakili
My DC cousin Christian
Lakita of GFC
Vintage Shaun
Quincy Girl, Chan’nel
Avid reader, Asia!
My little sister Taylor
Fellow Fashion High grad, Estephanie
and a bunch more whose names escapy me now.
