FEELING FRENCH | First Trip to Ladurée!

Macarons are the epitome of chic, french cookies. They are colorful and sweet, light and airy, and are traditionally filled with raspberry filling, chocolate, or cream. Now I don’t live in France (although I am obsessed with visiting), so I decided to do the next best thing and visit Maison Ladurée in Soho to get my hands on some french macarons!

SURPRISE AROUND THE CORNER

Sometimes when I am feeling a little stir crazy in my home, I tend to just pick up and go for a walk around my neighborhood. There is this coffee shop around the corner which I have always been curious about and have passed on several occasions, but never gone inside. Today I figured I might as well take my study notes and pay a visit to the shop before the noon thunderstorms arrive.
