Lamill Coffee & Urban Outfitters

Hey guys! Thank you so much for supporting my blog. I am almost hitting that 1 year mark of LosAngelesFoodieGirl Blog and I am beyond excited. Today I want to share with you something I collaborated with Urban Outfitters.

Urban Outfitters were launching their new souvenir shops in LA, Austin, Honolulu, and NYC the end of April and wanted me to  post about some of LA’s must visit foodie places. I had a ton of places in mind but with a super short notice,  tight deadlines, and me tackling my day job, I was only able to visit 1 spot. I chose to visit Lamill Coffee in Silverlake, Los Angeles.

My collaboration post is now live on their website. Thought  I’d share with you guys!
