Springtime Staple

Madewell overalls // Isabel Marant blouse // Proenza Schouler bag // Jennifer Meyer wishbone necklace // Steven Alan choker // Wildfox shades

Yes, LA usually has spring weather year round, but only at the end of March can anyone dress the part. Every spring I look forward to wearing light dresses and bohemian florals, but this year I have found the BEST pair of overalls from Madewell that I will be sure to wear waaaaayyyy too much this season. You see, flattering overalls are very hard for me to find, so these were a true score. I am also very happy about this blouse (I know, I know, "Florals for spring? Groundbreaking") but how could I not?? I'm a sucker for peasant tops, especially when they are covered in pink flowers. Now I am trying to find the perfect suede fringe jacket- I am SO into 70's style right now. 

Happy spring!

Laduree at Home

Thursday, February 19, 2015

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is bake. I won't cook dinner, but I promise i'll bring dessert! I usually stick with variations of cakes, cupcakes, and cookies, but I have recently started to venture into the harder to make sweets category, French macarons being my first victim. 

A couple weeks ago I looked up a recipe online that seemed okay at first but that I failed to execute correctly. With almost all of my French pastry chef dreams to dust, I found the Laduree cookbook on a weekend trip to BookMarc on Melrose. With a second attempt, and a waaaayyy better recipe, I kinda succeeded at making a batch of chocolate ones! I'm still not really sure how to make the shell more macaron looking, but it sure tastes right! I would know because I ate like 10. Tip- once they are ready, let them live in the fridge. They are SO good cold. And let me just say- chocolate ganache is an angle sent from above.
