Second firsts

While my first foray into blogging was not successful - posts few and far between - I hope that this second attempt will prove more fruitful. This blog will include whatever I am interested, fashion, vintage shopping, food and the like. To start things off on the right foot, below is how I spent my morning:

Sadly, my first attempt at macarons was awful. Last night I was browsing TasteSpotting (one of my favorite foodie hangouts!), and stumbled upon multiple macaron recipes. They all looked amazing and I felt inspired, so off to Whole Foods I went for supplies. My first batch kept me up until midnight and did not get the token macaron "feet" upon baking. I was too tired (and defeated) to make a second batch but I swore I would try agin today. Well take that, macarons! Not only were they successful, but they looked like they came right out of Bottega Louie.

Til next time!



  1. These look delicious! Do you have the recipe? I'm definitely a new follower. Hope you'll follow back!


    1. Thanks, Genevieve! I got the recipe from Helene at . She is the macaron QUEEN!


  2. My dear,
    I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I can really relate to it and it has completely got me hooked. I think we're going to get along just fine! ;) I’m your new follower and I’d be very pleased if you like my blog enough to follow it as well!
    I wish you lots of success and will surely come back often
