Max-wanger-photographer-shop
The super-talented Max Wanger just opened up a shop of prints and t-shirts. I love the concept of his limited edition tees - a new design every month based on one of his photographs. {You may recognize the image above from this lovely lady.} So now you can scoop up a little Max of your very own.

a sweet comparison...

Paulette-macarons
Last weekend, the macaron gods shined upon me and granted me some extra special delights. A friend {just back from a trip to Paris} brought me boxes of French macarons from the classic Ladurée as well as another much talked about, Pierre Hermé. Then, two days later, a dear friend visiting from LA bestowed a box of Paulette's colorful gems upon me. So I did what any normal macaron-loving human being would do and had a taste test. The final verdict...while all tasty, Pierre Hermé was the winner in my book. Though the direct-from-Paris versions were a bit damaged from travel, PH gets my vote for most creamy, rich, and delicious filling of the bunch.
