Confection Prrrr-fection

Hello Kitty + Ladurée macarons = quel cuteness! Such a perfect match ~ scrumptious & sweet, feminine & petite.

I’m simply sur la lune for Ladurée!  Everything about these Parisian purveyors of pretty confections is perfection ~ the marvelous macarons and bon bons, pretty packaging, delightful decor, scrumptious shops, and très chic site ~ which is the flipping cutest thing I have ever seen. (Just be sure to toggle to the English version if you don’t speak fluent Franglais.)

Ladurée is pure delectable delight ~ just strolling into one of its magical shops is a dream

Ladurée celebrates its 150th birthday this year ~ Bon Anniversaire, mes chéris!

The Hello Kitty collaboration, described as “a delicious journey through the world of childhood joie-de-vivre” is part of a year full of delightful collaborations and celebrations. This prrrrfect pairing is for a limited time only, so get your paws on these confections tout de suite, kittens!

For future reference ~ Mr. Tall, Dark & Dreamy ~ you had me at macarons. Meow.

Mad Love

Time to pop the prosecco and get this Mad Men party started! Ching ching to Don and the gang!

I’m so in love with this show I can’t stand it! Less than an hour and counting ~ www.secretsareback.com

Cherry Bomb

The Tidal Basin was exploding with Cherry Blossom blooms on Thursday! The fog high-tailed it out of town early ~ just in time for sunny blue skies to roll in with a perfect spring breeze to top off a perfect spring day.

My Mom and I enjoyed a lovely day under the shade of the cherry blooms with blossoms at their peak ~ and plenty of elbow room to wander, explore and snap some shots of one of the crowning glories of DC.  Enjoy!

A tiptoe through the Tulip Library topped off our perfect day…

The pretty palette was as vivid as the colors of the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring.

Bon printemps!

Ka-Bloom ~ It’s Spring!

I’m smitten with spring and all the promise it brings for sparkly and sunny days ahead ~ bursting with fresh blooms, fresh air, frisky frocks & fashion, flirting, and fizzy drinks al fresco.

Patio or lawn, porch or porch swing ~ I hope you kick back, relax, and enjoy fun times with family, friends, and flirt-worthy playmates this season. I thought I’d share one of my favorite poems, “Flower Gathering” by Robert Frost, to ring in the romance of spring.

Le sigh. It’s the little things that mean the most.

Time to Shine

It’s time for me to settle down ~ because at the moment, I’m craving all of these Kate Spade watches.  Inspired by New York City, each pretty timepiece in  this chic collection is named after a local landmark. J’adorbs! Now just wait ’til that cute guy asks if you have the time ~ “For a drink?” you’ll say ~ “I’d love to!”  Wink.

Clockwise (how fitting!) from pink: Carousel pink bangle, Seaport in gold, Cooper strap in pale turquoise, Carousel yellow bangle, Carousel white bangle, Cooper bracelet.

When it comes to style & shine, Kate is always on time!
