Sips & Tips.

Some of the perks of having a badass girl boss of a cousin, who happens to reside in the Bay Area, includes spontaneous trips up North (still not a fan of the 6 am flights, but shout out JetBlue for those Terra chips), tea dates, and her persistent nod to toss out my lack-luster Adidas Superstars.  

This time around, the lash queen and I visited the adorable Parisian inspired pastry shop, Mademoiselle Colette, for a quick morning coffee run. Located in the center of Menlo Park, the neighborhood featured the cutest townhouses and small shops – sorry Mom, I might move. The charming & bright shop had the cutest outdoor marbles tables with bright white chairs. It stood out immediately. 


The assortment of croissants, brioche, and cookies stood out immediately against the crisp counters. We settled for their Kouign Amann, the Blanc & Rose tea, and a coconut iced latte.

I wore a flowy, white and black polka dot dress with button details down the middle. Per Angela’s request, I sported a pair of dark grey New Balance WRL420 sneakers. The detail inside the pastry shop was elegant and beautiful down to the details on the floor. We opted to sit outside, enjoying the warmth since we suffer from always being cold #anemia. The pink star & gold stripe straws were incredibly cute. Paper straws for the win. Peep the New Balances - safe to say, my Superstars have been hanging in my closet ever since.
