Happy blue Monday my lovely internet besties! Hopefully as I always wish, this post can add a little sparkle and shimmer to your Monday blues and if you’re in the LA area give you a new little spot to visit that I am currently obsessing over! LA is not short of trendy little places for trendy little hipsters and locals to frequent but it is pretty hard to truly catch my attention as I am a horrible creature of habit and have a bad habit of only frequenting the same spots over and over again. My new spot is for sure and without a doubt Melrose Place. Melrose Place is not a little square street of apartments that struggling actors and waitresses on the CW live. It is actually a super chic little street off of Melrose Avenue with a Frederic Fekkai, Isabel Marant, Chloe, Kate Somerville spa and a few other lesser known gems. Little gems such as Violet Grey the trendiest and best curated little shop of Los Angeles favorite beauty products and my new daily bread Alfred’s Tea Room. After grabbing some of their house iced keg tea (Strawberry Honeybush, omg it’s amazing) and a cookie, muffin or croissant take a little stroll down the street. Check out Bookmarc, Marc Jacobs privately curated bookshop across from his boutique or have skip across around the corner to Alexander Mcqueen, Herve Leger or A.L.C for some “window” shopping. Either way you are destined to have a very lovely little afternoon.
* For an extra yummy time make sure and bring along your beau and bestie
