Saturday in Laduree

It's the weekend! I have no idea how I'm spending this one, but here's where I was the last , just like Carrie Bradshaw: Laduree, the patisserie across the church of Madeleine, Paris.
I was not alone and miserable like her though (aw, what an episode that was!), but eating away happily with my friend and having the best coffee in the city. Took a picture of my dish but then tried it and there was no way I would stop and think about taking any more pics in there. I literally ate a piece of art!! -in every sense.
I've never thought of using the words "stylish" and "dessert" in the same sentence before, but tell me, what do you call this?? Chocolate macaroons covered in gold! yummy? I don't know. The qeue to buy some on our way out was too long and they would not allow us to buy take away whilst sitted. (grrr)
So we ended up with these, equally velvety and delicious, bought by the Dalloyau department from the Lafayette Gourmet floor. I swear they put some magic potion in those macaroons in France, nothing tastes like them!
Too scared to try the last one, it was shimmering silver and i was miles away from home... you understand!

So that was last Saturday... Let's see what this one brings.

Have a sweet weekend!

p.s. Memory lane anyone? :))

Thank you for the tips! It helped a lot! Now I just hope my friends believed me when I tried to explain that if it's under 15C it's still Cold with a capital c.

I want to go there!
I actually had no sympathy for Carrie in that episode...she was in freakin' Paris--she had no real reason to be miserable.

I love Sex And The City! I watch late night reruns they show on TV. haha! And yum- those macaroons look tremendously good! My family makes them for christmas every year.
And thank you so much for the comment! I have always felt a little self conscious about posing so that means especially much to me! Thank you!
