I love the delicious and beautiful macarons, not to be confused with macaroons. So pretty and delicate!

loving all of it especially the journals.

CerenaLeigh said...

oh my goodness. you have no idea how much I love every single thing here. I am a big germophobe when it comes to my hand, so I have hand sanitizer with me all the time. I ADORE starbucks (especially vanilla-bean frappuccinos), I'm an english/creative writing major so the Jane Austen book and journal would make so so incredible happy, and the headband is beautiful.
so are the other items!
really REALLY really crossing my fingers for this.

I'm a lush and want all the goodies. I can just see me now...sitting in a cozy chair with Jane Austen in one hand and a latte in the other. And, having a pretty doily coaster to sit my cup on while I reach for the box of macaroons all complimented by the scent of Pure & Good. Sounds/smells like heaven!

My favorite would most definitely have to be the moleskin journals. I began a diary/journal in the early '90s when I was in 4th grade and haven't stopped yet. Currently, I am exploring the art of blogging, and writing "love letters" to my fiance until our wedding date on July 2, 2011.
