Macarooned.

Posted on: 07 October 2008

My aunts returned earlier in the week from Paris and managed to bring back several (very pretty) boxes of the yummiest macaroons from the very well known Laduree. I can't believe they survived the journey back because the sure didn't survive for long once they reached my house! Each one is flavoured differently from coffee, caramel, strawberry jam and lemon curd. I am partial to all things green and it's no wonder that my favourites were the little pistachio ones, yummy!




Earlier in the week I'd spotted these fringed boots in Topshop but in a lovely tan colour and I've seen many a blogger who have also commented on these. I'm glad I didn't make any rash decisions as I found a similar pair in New look (unfortunately no picture) for £35 which is a much healthier price tag than the £60 from Topshop and are also available in both black and tan. I didn't buy them though...as I would love them in a chocolate brown colour. I'm hoping I don't regret this decision of not buying...but I need to learn some self control.

I traveled up to Liverpool yesterday but severe train delays meant a trip to the Tate at the docks was out of the question. So we went straight to Liverpool one which really isn't a shopping mall as I thought it would be! It was more of an extension of the high street so it was all outdoors. Still they had American Apparel there and my sister also took me to a few cute shops like Boudoir Boutique, Pop Boutique and a really nice (but expensive) vintage shop next to it which I thought were all amazing. I wish I had taken photos for you all to see! Next time I go up I will definitely bring my camera!

  18. Pop boutique is great, it's better to go to the one in Grand Central Hall. Turn left after the Oxfam on Bold Street and it's right in front of you. It has lots of little vintage shops (ad a few scary emo shops) all in one place. Next time you're up here give it a try =)
