We’re finally back from NYC and settling back in, somewhat (I’ve unpacked one of the two luggage I brought lol, at least it’s progress!) I’m terrible at unpacking, I’ve left luggage untouched after trips for weeks at a time before… 🙁 but this time, I’m determined to finish unpacking today… I have quite a few posts from NYC but before those, I need to finish up my posts pre-vacation. Here we go…
I’ve been on a hunt for a cute pair of comfortable wedges for quite some time now. I was fooled by ShoeDazzle’s Ciji wedges – though super cute, they were super uncomfortable for me. I know many reviews out there rave about them but for me, they were stiff and hurt my toes, narrow and too high in the back where it would dig into the back of my ankles. No bueno. After trying many pairs, I was going to give up until Bakers had a special holiday deal on their wedges offering an extra 25% off. I instantly placed an order for NINE pairs of wedges. LOL 🙂 it was free shipping and you could return in store! Anyway, out of all the pairs I ordered, I kept the Lola’s and these Maddie wedges. Yes, the Maddie’s in every color available. Hey, they’re perfect, what can I say? They’re the perfect height, super comfy and such a cute shape that is the perfect balance between sexy and sweet.
My Mom was in town visiting us so knowing our mutual love for French macarons, I decided to take her to lunch at Lemonade in Beverly Hills. Along with their tasty drinks and delicious salads, they also have HUGE macarons that are just too outrageously cute to resist.
It ended up being a fun-macaron-filled day with dinner reservations at Bottega Louie. The food was delicious, ambiance up-beat, and dessert selection incredible. I think it’s a macaron tie between ‘Lette and Bottega Louie. Although, I still prefer most of ‘Lette’s flavours, Bottega Louie’s Salted Caramel Macaron was right up there with even Laduree, for me. Love love.
