I have no idea why I thought of Laduree tonight
but for some reason it popped into my head.
Maybe it was the need for warmth and sweet,
maybe it's been the heavy doses of testosterone at work, 
or maybe it's the thoughts of valentines approaching
and the need for pink and girly.

Either way I had Laduree on the top of mind.

If you have never heard of it or been there
it is pure confection not only for the tongue but for the eye.
It is this absolutely divine tea house in Paris. 
They have them in several large cities and airports, 
shoot you  can have them deliver to your private Lear jet
if in the UK , 
but they originated in Paris in 1862.

They are famous for their macaroons.
They are these beautiful and colorful
pops of deliciousness that 
you can't find anywhere else.
The chose of flavors alone will make you swoon.
lavender, chocolate, espresso, caramel....

There packaging is pure girly.
Who wouldn't want a box that looked like this....

And let's not forget their interiors....
Pure delight....

Even there windows are like jewel boxes...

Hollywood has a bit of a love affair with them as well....

I wax on about a simple macaroon, it's place of pleasure
and a simple cup of tea.

Thank you for letting me indulge....
