Fun with friends in Los Angeles

Yellow House CafeYellow House CafeYellow House CafeYellow House CafeYellow House CafeYellow House CafeYellow House CafeYellow House CafeOn Sunday we had a day off to spend with friends. We had lunch at Yellow House Cafe. It was so much fun and so delicious. We had the best korean food and blooming flower teas. Next, we stopped by a flea market (at Fairfax High School) and did a little shopping with our pals Jenny and Anna. Too bad there was so much good furniture there—grrr! 

It's always nice to connect with friends during business trips! We'll share more about our trip soon. xo. Elsie + Emma

  • I live around there and I’ve always wanted to go to that flea market. One day! Also, I always try tea everywhere I go and that tea looks amazing! Thanks for sharing.


  • Aw I wish I knew you girls were going to be in LA. My best friend lives 2 minutes away from the yellow house cafe. It’s always amazing <3

  • Ooh I’ll have to check out Yellow House Cafe!

  • Ahhhh this looks so nice! I haven’t been to LA in 5 years and I’ve been super hardcore itching to go back.

  • The one weekend I don’t go to the flea market you girls are there! 🙁 Wish I could’ve bumped into you guys! Love the pics!

  • Love flea markets – they’re so fun! Also, the colors in these pictures is amazing!

  • This looks so awesome – just what I would like to do myself for the weekend + a flea market on the top of that. So jealous as vintage is totally crap in Hong Kong. However, we have the awesome fabric markets instead =)

  • Any idea as to how they make this iced blooming tea?

    I know the bulbs open in hot water, but the iced part..? or did you just recieve it after the hot tea had been cooled and the bulbs already open?

  • Amazing pics 🙂
