Macaron & Mayhem Guide: London

MACARONS Aux Merveilleux de Fred:  Cramique and meringues straight from Paris. Harrod’s:  Snacks on snacks on snacks…. Lauderee:  For when you can’t travel to Paris. MAYHEM American Bar at The Savoy:  Classic. Posh. Old school cocktails ($5000 Sazerac, anyone). I visit this spot every time I’m in London to feel like I’m in London. Calloo…

London Calling

London Calling, yes, I was there too… …and will be again in a week! I’ve been lucky enough to jaunt across the pond something like my six times this year.  Since I keep repeating my destination cities and am often asked for resto reccos, I thought what better than to share some travel favorites via…

It Goes Down in the DM

Well, after briefly trying Snap Chat last summer and finding multiple platforms completely unnecessary, I’m back in the “story business” on IG. I released my inaugural story yesterday – a truly stunning series of daily events. Jokes. Just the little bits of daily life that are lovely enough to share. PLUS, I decided to track…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

Or I was just that tired. Without further ado…. Girl Scout Cookie Macarons from Lucette Grace. Clockwise from 12 o’clock: Tag along- Nommm Lemonade- very fresh….

Stuff I Ate in San Francisco

Fresh off of a romantic long weekend in San Francisco, I’m struggling with sleep and pondering why there aren’t afternoon cheese and wine pairings at my office. So, instead of showing you photos from our suite at the Clift hotel or snaps taken from blustery rooftops, I opt to show you snacks….  Crueller, homemade vanilla…

This is 34

Another year in the books lands me at “this is 34.” I suppose 34 feels about right. Old enough to have figured out who I am and smart enough not to make the same mistakes twice. Young enough to have so much to look forward to and plenty of time to improve life and make…

Literal Macarons and Mayhem

I suffer from a constant case of wanderlust, the inability to pass by a macaron shop without a taste, and love of impromptu adventures, big and small. What better way to kick off a dreamy blog with how the French will be spending their summers– bounced into the refreshingly cool (not so much) waters of…
