Last week I visited my family back in San Diego, CA and it was amazing. It literally felt like a mini vacay because I got to get away from the NYC madness for a week. During my visit I had to do a little shopping so I went to Carlsbad Premium Outletsfor the very first time. I realized the mall is way bigger than I expected and they have a great variety of stores that I like. I was going crazy at Kate Spade because of the absolutely great sales they had going on (60% off jewelry and 50% off apparel). I ended up buying a super cute bracelet that I will post with an outfit soon. Another store that had great sales was Michael Kors with 50% off apparel, I did some damage there as well. 🙂 DKNY and Nike had super gorgeous athleisure wear for sale that you should definitely check out. The ambience at the mall is very peaceful and great for families to shop together. There’s a little train ride for kids to be entertained and make sure you grab a Hawaiian shaved ice cone at the Hokulia shack while at it. There’s a great selection of stores for everyone in the family to shop. I brought my sisters along and their kids, while I shopped and concentrated, they were all at the Disney store having fun. Since I love saving money, I will share a tip with you guys on how to save even more at this mall. Make sure to stop by the information center at the mall or go on to premiumoutlets.com/VIPto sign up for their VIP shopper club, which offers you a savings passport that has exclusive offers and discounts on top of already reduced prices. As a VIP you also get access to exclusive online offers, invitations to local events, and more. Once I was done shopping, we all headed to Ruby’s Diner because of the kids. We were all starving and wanted the kids to have fun while we dined, which is why we chose this fun and kid friendly restaurant (p.s. They have unlimited fries, so if you’re a fan go!). Overall I had an amazing time at these outlets and I was happy to find everything I needed in such a great environment. Next time you’re in Carlsbad or just want to visit a new mall, make sure to stop by Carlsbad Premium Outlets.
