a little bit of Paris in New York

 Today I had the most amazing adventure with my friend Shelly. 
We hoped onto the 6 train and went to Manhattan; there we got Thai food and talked about girly things... IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!! (a much needed girls days)
The best part of our adventure was going to LADUREE an amazing pastry shop where they sell the most amazing, scrumptious, drool worthy French macaroons I've ever had.. and that includes the ones I learned to make while working as an apprentice pastry chef in a French bakery.

These bite size treats are def one of my top eats of my life!!!
If you've never heard of LADUREE you need to go! They just opened the first store in the US a couple months ago in Manhattan, NY. (address: 864 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10021)
And they actually import the macaroon goodness directly from Paris to New York fresh daily!
Everything about this pastry shop is adorable, so cute!! The bags are a pastel pistachio color, and the store provides a variety of boxes (different colors and sizes) to hold the macaroons... 
I got the lilac one of course, but there were so many different options I wanted them all.

 flavors I bought (left to right): Cherry Blossom, Lemon, Milk Chocolate, Chocolate, Pistachio, and Incroyables (which is an almond flavor macaroon with a marshmallowy filling)
 ★ Favorite flavors : Pistachio & Incroyables
you must try them!!!!
 the box, ThE bOx, THE BOX!!! SO CUTE!
 even the store front looked amazing, a fairy tale filled with macaroons!!
HEAVEN IS WHERE THE MACAROONS ARE!!!
Have you ever had LADUREE?! If so tell me your favorite flavors!
must have these goodies again soon.
I'm now def macaroon obsessed, and am considering applying for a job in LADUREE in a couple of weeks.
Hope you liked this post! Food porn I tell you!!
keep it classy.

  1. I am soo obsessed with these pretty little treats! We have a shop nearby (sadly it's not as authentic as Laduree) and I adore it.. vanilla and salted caramel have to be my favorites! xo

  14. Puh-leeze don't fall for the whorizontal. Choose Right. Choose the Light. And win thy fight. See ya soon, girl; see ya in Heaven. In fact, I love you so much, I'd much rather serve you for the length and breadth of eternity. Nevertheless, this is one of our blogs I wrote to try and git the Word-Out about how much I love the female race and, in the Great Beyond, I'll love'm more precisely because a whole universe is waiting for eternity. Join me, miss gorgeous, and lemme fill-us-up to pleasure-beyond-measure. Wanna? Ya gonna? Just to kiss your adorable feets in Heaven would blow-my-mind. Look’n forward to it. See ya soon.
