Good morning lovelies! Now doesn't this seem like a perfect way to spend the day? I cannot wait for the New York City outpost of Ladurée to open this month. I've been waiting for years and now my dream is almost a reality. It's so close I can almost taste it :)

Wishing you all a delicious day!

Ohhh tempting me this early in the morning. Although macaroons have been on my "to attempt" list for a while. Even though I know they won't look anywhere near as perfect and gorgeous as Ladurée I'm pretty sure they'll taste just fine!

B. in the Know said...

Oh. My. Goodness. How did I not know this was happening?! I feel like an emeregency trip to NYC must happen once Lauderee opens up - it is only my favorite bakery outside of Magnolia's - and now I can enjoy both in the same city?! Too good to be true!
Much love,
B

This post is tickling my taste buds already! I love Laduree and their macarons, the restaurant in Harrods is an experience too - Pierre Herme does some amazing macarons as well.
I've bookmarked this recipe, incase you can't wait that long for macarons:

I am absolutely fascinated that you get to do fun and fantastic things in your job! I have an incredibly sensitive nose - the kind that can smell a gas leak and tar from a mile away!

Krystal said...

laduree is amazing! i went to one in lausanne and one in zurich in the same weekend, haha :) just don't get the rose flavor, it literally tastes like eating a flower.
