Hi guys! I feel like I still need to reflect on 2014..not too late right? haha maybe that will be for an upcoming post :) but as for the first trip of 2015 me and Matt ventured out to Los Angeles for a couple days. It was way too short of a trip but we had an amazing time as usual.

Not sure how we found this place (Milo and Olive), may have came up when we were searching for a brunch place and oh man this breakfast pizza took the meaning of “food coma” to another level. They also had a ton of yummy pastries which we devoured on the way to Pasadena.

Not sure how we had room in our bellies after stopping by Flour + Tea (adorable cafe) for some macarons and bubble tea but we couldn’t pass up on ramen.

Quick outfit change for the party: lovee this structured knit dress as it’s super comfy, doesn’t wrinkle so great for travel, and warm enough for the chilly winter nights in LA, score.

Sigma always knows how to throw a party and um can we talk about this candy bar that’s mostly comprised of makeup? I’m not complaining haha

Next morning before our flight back we yet again brunched and we brunched hard (at Republique). The salmon tartine with avocado was calling my name.
