Sunday Funday: Los Angeles

Ahh, the city of Angels. It's the city I was born and raised in, filled with so many wonders that you can't neglect to partake.

It was such a beautiful summer's day this past weekend. I don't know what this polar vertex nonsense is considering its been in the 70s/80s all month long. Staying indoors in this weather would be a shame. To appease Mother Nature, my bestie and I decided to get to know Echo Park, Silver Lake, and Los Feliz, the neighborhoods so close by yet not nearly visited by us.

What started out as a dash to check out a vintage yard sale hosted by one of the wives from No Doubt, turned into a fun in the sun excursion.

You know that moment you see a store you've heard so much about so you have to walk in? Well that happened with Valerie Confections in Echo Park. Starting the day off with dessert... why not? We got ourselves some petite fours and a galette, which was consumed as breakfast this morning. Yummz.

that blood orange vanilla cream galette was phenomenal as my breakfast
Realizing that brunch should shortly follow suit, we drove to Silver Lake for brunch at Sqirl. Small and quaint and packs a punch. Definitely want to go back and explore the menu some more.
The Dream
Open Face Brioche Toast
Delicious food comas has one subtle cure for us: walking, getting drinks, and shopping. Taking strolls in Silver Lake and then landing ourselves in Los Feliz and grabbing drinks at the Big Bar at Alcove Cafe. Sitting on the patio, basking in the sun, watching the fellow passerbys, and just having a great relaxing afternoon. Couldn't have asked for more.
Day wouldn't really be complete til I bought something cute for myself. Love my new earrings from Meowdy!
