It is still Spring Break for me and let me just say, I am totally making the most of it. The first thing I did after taking my last final of winter quarter was get a manicure and pedicure lol. Pampering yourself after a stressful quarter/semester is a must in my opinion. So far, this break has been the most relaxing and fun at the same time. One of my new favorite LA spots to add to my LA blog series is Alfred Tea Room on Melrose Avenue. I just visited a couple days ago for the first time. Alfred Tea Room is about 3 to 4 miles away from UCLA, which means I definitely will be coming here more often. The decor and vibes of Alfred Tea Room is so cute! I feel like it is a total blogger hangout cafe spot.
I am honestly not a coffee or tea person, but I LOVED the matcha from Alfred Tea Room. For those who don’t know, matcha is finely grounded powder of specially grown and processed green tea.
Matcha has a lot of health benefits, so if you go to Alfred Tea Room I definitely recommend trying Matcha. According to Muscle and Fitness Magazine, matcha “torches” body fat and is great for an anti-cancer diet. If that is not enough to convince you, matcha is packed with antioxidants, it boosts metabolism and burns calories, detoxifies effectively and naturally, calms the mind and relaxes the body, provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium, prevents diseases, as well as lowers cholesterol and blood sugar!! Ahhh – crazy right? For more information check out: Matcha Source

I wore a floral open shoulder top to Alfred Tea Room and I am glad I did to go with the pinkish tones of the walls. I blended in with the theme of the place and with the current Spring season. You can shop my outfit look below!
