A few weeks ago, I got to chat with Sara Monica, The Small Chick behind the blog, Small Chick Big Deals (SCBD), a lifestyle guide to deals in food, fashion, beauty, fitness and more. She started the blog 2 years ago writing only about food deals, but now the blog covers a variety of many spaces and interests. If you haven’t yet done so, please check out her blog!
Born and raised in New Jersey, Sara currently lives in the Jersey area but is constantly traveling to NYC. With a background in Public Relations, Sara has worked for shows like The Rachel Ray Show. According to Sara, it was during her time at The Rachel Ray Show that she really got to learn about the city and fell in love with it. “I was also able to learn a lot about cooking,” says Sara.
A woman of many talents, in addition to running her blog, Sara also has a day job working as a Brand Manager in the marketing industry. She has an amazing team of writers and interns who are constantly creating and publishing new and interesting content on SCBD. What she loves most about SCBD is being able to share her knowledge and experiences with everyone.
One of her favorite NYC restaurants is Daniel Boulud’s DBGB. “It’s pretty affordable and the food is amazing…I was just impressed with the quality of the food.” Her favorite item at DBGB is is the DBGB Dog, which is a housemade beef weiner topped with sautéed onion, mustard, ketchup, and “299” relish.
Sara is super passionate about her blog and highly encourages those who are interested in starting their own blog to “definitely go for it. If you’re even thinking about it, if you have a good concept and good theme or idea, just do it. There’s nothing you could lose.”
In her spare time, she likes to read and watch movies. According to Sara, “If I could go on vacation more, I probably would. That’s been one of my goals for the website, is to do more travel pieces and to see what’s out there.”
We look forward to having Sara guest blog on DailyFoodtoEat – we can’t wait to have her voice behind some of the awesome food deals she has exclusive access to!
