Sweets for the Sweet

Congratulations to Buttaflybytes Buzz for being my 100th Google follower! You win, um, a virtual hug from me. Enjoy.

Anyway, I hope that the 30x30 shopping ban doesn't include shopping for others. Otherwise, I've cheated. I couldn't help but pick up a cute little box of macaroons for the boy as part of his Valentine's Day gift. Don't they look too sweet to eat? I highly suggest Bottega Louie for dinner and dessert the next time you're in Los Angeles!

I also purchased two adorable card sets from Claudia Kay Photography to send to faraway friends and family. I love the personal touches she included, especially a hand-written note!

PS: Yvonne of Fashion Recon (formerly Vogue Inspired Fashion for the Real World) recently hosted an event featuring yours truly along with some other blogger babes. Check it out!


  1. Nothing in this world like macaroons! They look so yummy. :)

  2. Do macarrons taste as nice as they look????.
    I love personal notes.If do don´t have any at the time, I make it.I also keep the ones people send me. Yours are really beautiful.
    Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

  3. hahhaha you're safe - the shopping ban is actually just on clothes and accessories related items for yourself. Or I've broken it by buying things like a phone cover and ink hahhaha.

  4. Mmm... delish! But is that a blue macaroon? What kind of crazy flavor is that?
