LADUREE, CHAMPES ELYSEES


"I will confess I loitered around to poke curtains and sniff soaps for longer than was strictly necessary."
A little gem that fell through the cracks of my writing desk, a delicious Macaroon shaped gem that starts while in Paris back in May, when I took a trip to Laduree on Champs Elysees terrifying Insta frenzy anyone?.. 

It was a place reminiscent of some idealistic fairytale before the inevitable baddie paints everything with a dark cloud and well.. I was suitably bombarded with extravagance on hyper drive! Make no mistakes pals, you won't find any expectation spoilers here, in the home of impeccable staff who seem to materialise from walls and foreign steamy beverages served in solid silver teapots..swoon 
(Eh did I really just say swoon?!) Yes, yes it seems I did. 
Laduree Is somewhere, that for me has been painted into a kind of macaroon loving Disney World for the cake connoisseurs/ pastry gobblers among us, so I had some well shaped expectations to tick off my list

  • Queues going out the door (it was Saturday after all)
  • More macaroon flavours than you can shake a stick at
  • The Menu- minds were made up and changed at length
  • Cake Displays to knock you on your ass.

SUMMER SENSIBILITIES

"On Monday, I started my new role as head of Social Media for non other than the very cool JOANNE HYNES."


Happy Sunday guys, 
I just got back from a lovely two weeks spent with my family in Mojacar, Spain. We we're visiting my Nana Brenda who's lived there for as long as I can remember and it's something we've been doing as a family since we we're tiny things :).. It's always the most amazing time full of great food (Nana and Granddad ran a restaurant), laughs and all the other excellently exaggerated holiday necessities like Ice-creams for breakfast.

Evenings generally consist of us getting over dressed and swanning around in the balmy evenings, drinking G&T's- Nana's speciality and plenty of cute little bars to enjoy cocktails of impressive magnitude. In this post I've included all of my outfits during my stay including day time outings and evening get togethers.
