currently craving....shine!

I've got an obsession for nail polishes (really! you don't say!?!).  Lately I've been wanting a break from the opaque and autumn colors that I have been wearing.  I decided on "Some Enchanted Evening" from Deborah Lippmann's limited collection "All That Jazz"

The other two colors have a nice base color with the glitter whereas "Some Enchanted Evening" has no base color at all.  It took about 3-4 coats to achieve the coverage that I got. 

I think its a good combination of being fun and dainty (anything pink makes me feel dainty) at the same time!  Besides...it'll make you smile when you catch the light off the glitter when you are busy typing away at work!


Macarons Galore!!

Ohhh macarons...so fickle to make but yet soo delicious! Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last few years, everyone knows what a macaron is.  It is a french almond cookie with various flavored fillings ranging from chocolate ganache to passion fruit.  This has to be one of my favorite french pastries.  Its colorful and full of flavor!  How can one not smile when they see the bright pop of colors?!?

Today I received a package from Paulette!! A belated birthday present from a friend.  As you can see from the picture, there are 24 of them! Count it, 24 cute, colorful, and tasty macarons that is waiting for me to be devour with my coffee.....needless to say I will be going on a diet as soon as these are finished!!


Chanel Khaki Collection

Yes...I splurged on the full collection of Chanel Khaki nail polishes. Yes, it is expensive but....I have yet to find a dup and besides....can't help smiling about owning a piece of Chanel (no matter how small!)
