Lola Coffee

Yesterday morning I made a trip to Lola Coffee in dowtown Phoenix.

I went there with the intentions of getting an an iced soy latte, a reccomendation from a classmate of mine, but once I got in there it was chilly and I decided a hot non-fat latte was the way to go.

Lola is a super chic and has a New York City vibe to it, something you can't always find in Phoenix. One of my favorite things about this location, the other being on Central Ave., is that it faces a historic building with beautiful vines and flowers growing up the side of it.

I decided to sit in the hall, where it was most quite, and did a bit of reading before my 10:30 a.m. class.

(right behind where I sat-the back entrance)

Oh, and have I mentioned how I want to live in the adorable apartments that sit right next to Lola? Because I REALLY do!

Lastly, two quick things:
-today I had an article published in the Arizona Republic (super, super excited about this)! You can read it here.
-yesterday I also sent out cute homemade mail!

Ok, time to go to English Lit. class to chat about Plath!
