Travel and Lifestyle: High Tea at Ladurée and What is a Perfect Macaron?


If you haven’t personally been to Ladurée, I have no doubt that you know what it is and what it is that they specialise in, courtesy of the good old Gossip Girl days… and for those who still have no clue then here’s a little background for you:

Ladurée is a luxury French bakery and pastries house, they are world famous for their macarons and have 52 stores in the world, 6 being in Paris alone and of course we don’t have one in SA. 😉 Little fun fact for you: Ladurée made macarons for the film Marie Antoinette! Amazing! 🙂

So where did I have the Ladurée experience, you might ask, I had high tea in Times Square in Hong Kong. Personally, I’m a huge fan of macarons and I don’t particularly have a sweet tooth. The perfect macarons for me is where the macaron shells have feet, not hollow and the outside is slightly hard but not crispy and baked to perfection but the inside of the macaron shell should be so airy that it melts in your mouth. Of course, a macaron is not a macaron without filling, although I’m a huge fan of chocolate ganache but a little bit of blueberry or lemon curd filling never hurt. The filling must be smooth and in fact where all the flavour is because the macaron shells don’t actual have any flavouring, just colouring. Although still attempting to bake the perfect macarons myself, I definitely know how to enjoy a good macaron! Unfortunately we don’t have a Ladurée store in SA but you can get pretty good macarons from Tashas Le Parc in Hyde Park Corner, they have a variety of different flavours and certainly worth a try if you’re seeking good macarons.







We also ordered lemon cake and also some sort of chocolate brownie, if I remembered correctly.

I cannot for the life of me remember the flavours I ordered but the pink one is definitely “Rose” because I always order that flavour and it was delicious! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! 🙂

Lookbook: First Look of 2014


Hi Everyone! Seeing that I haven’t been doing lookbook posts for so long, I got a little camera shy in the beginning but quickly warmed up to it! So here’s my first lookbook post of 2014. I actually had tons of fun and seeing that we’re experiencing such fantastic weather lately in Jozi (being very hot), I couldn’t go without a Chocolate Frio from Vida to cool me down. Being in the quiet suburbial streets of Sandton really reminded me of what a beautiful country we live in with so much green and fresh air! 🙂 Not that I wouldn’t jump at the chance to go on holiday again and explore the rest of this beautiful world! Oh, and I’m obsessed with my new Vivienne Westwood sunnies that I purchased on my holiday! What do you think? 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your week!
