If you follow my Instagram you’ll know that Coffee fuels my soul! Finding a welcoming coffee shop is always a treat. It helps me unwind a bit after a long commute to get kiddos to their schools and regroup right before I start work.
Lately, I have been wanting to find a coffee shop that felt welcoming and as if at home. Thankfully I found a job near a favorite a favorite spot that always transports me back to my little town in Mexico. It’s full of plants and greenery and has a Latin Decor that makes you feel extra special to be in it. They have a full barrista menu that includes a Mexican recipes such as Mexican hot chocolate and those yummy “cafesitos Mexicanos!” Their counter is filled with fresh pastries that will compliment any of their creations.
Do I have your Coffee and/or Hot Chocolate taste buds at attention? Put your faith on their ability to whip up a treat that I’m sure you’ll enjoy and may have you remembering your travels to Latin America. Where is it you say? It’s right in the middle of Downtown Long Beach and it’s truly a hidden GEM. The “Birdcage Coffee House” owner, Eleno, is always friendly with a big welcoming smile that not only takes pride of the community but hosts many groups and organizations for their campaigns to help those around him. There’s outside seating as well as small and large tables inside and offers free WiFi to his customers that range from business people to community leaders.

In honor of my visit to the “Birdcage Coffee House” I wore my “bird cage” hat with the purple peplum dress that instantly looked retro when put together. I added my red polka dot skinny belt and animal print heels to complete my look.

I enjoy wearing peplum designs as it is very giving on the tummy area and gives my petite round body a great figure.. The skinny belt helps break the look and accents the smaller part of my waist. The veiled hat is my accent piece and the red of the belt helps tie it in to a style that many will smiled with surprise when they saw me… OR… it may be the exuding confidence such looks give me, ha!
