Sweet Treats from Laduree
Welcome to the gorgeously pastel world of Laduree.. for those of you who are unfamiliar with Laduree, they are the french Macaroon specialists!
Laduree is sold in Harrods in the UK (mental note has been made to stop by next time I am in London!) but as soon as we booked Paris I knew I had to go! I discovered the lovely key rings when I was searching for images online for my blog and stumbled across a picture of one! I got the brown one as I thought it wouldn't get dirty through using it day to day!
The shop on Champs Elysees is so beautiful, they look like the absolute Parisian Dream when you come across it and inside was a gorgeous cafe and shop selling the Macaroons in beautiful gift boxes. I was overwhelmed for choice when I picked some up. The salted caramel ones were my favourite and I brought a box back for my mum and sisters from the airport!
I also treated myself to a little bag to take my lunch to work in style :o)
I think I love this brand so much because of the sheer girlieness and luxury that they convey. Their packaging is to die for and if I could have got hold of more of the boxes to store bits and pieces in I would have done! They also sell scented candles, perfumes, purses etc..
It was difficult to control myself to be honest, those pastel hues call out to me!
