Loving...

This week our hearts are all aflutter for the loveliness that is: Ladurée- Okay so in all honesty who hasn’t yet fallen in love with Ladurée? These mini macarons are nothing short of Parisian perfection and the whole Ladurée experience is very Marie-Antoinette meets Alice in Wonderland; in short the stuff dreams are made of and we just can’t get enough. Our Pink Elephant favorites when it comes to the queen of macarons has to be a toss-up between the chocolate and vanilla, and should you be lucky enough to be based or passing through London or Paris both the Ladurée Tearooms (Paris) and Covent Garden (London) both host an afternoon tea that we can only imagine would be worthy of the flight!

 YSL Electric Blue Lashes- We happened to stumble upon the most perfect electric blue mascara in the form of YSL’s Volume Effet Faux Cils in Extreme Blue. Not a navy and not a half-assed hint of blue/black, this one is an all-out bright blue that properly pops; if you have blue eyes especially get this. Quirky, fun, summer lashes all wrapped up in a luxe gold tube- and if in doubt remember its YSL, they don’t get it wrong!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose- I’m a big fan of a pink cheek and our friends at Bobbi Brown do a fresh flush to perfection. Their latest Spring Summer 2013 offering, the ‘Lilac Rose Collection’, is full of lovely flirty, girly tones with the stand out piece for me being the iconic Shimmer Brick, in Rose. Versatile as always, the shimmer brick can also be used on the eyes, but this version is definitely best on cheeks. Having tried this for the first time last night, the finish is a soft, fresh pink with the most beautiful sheeny-glow. Admittedly I’m a little on the pasty side (anyone who’s experienced Ireland in March will feel my pain here) but on a golden tan the finish on this one would be nothing short of gorgeous!

Starbucks Caramel Macchiato- it’s the little things! We discovered Starbucks latest coffee based creation earlier this week and have since been back for more (…and more). For a mere 104 calories, albeit sacrificing the full fat milk and the ‘good’ syrup, this cup of joy is guaranteed to serve at your caffeine fix and satisfy your sweet tooth while having minimal impact on even the skinniest of skinny jeans. More please!

Starbucks Caramel Macchiato- more please!

Mini-Cooper – So we’ve forever loved the chic, stylish runaround that is the Mini-cooper but we’re particular in love with it this week as one half of Pink Elephant welcomes the lovely Bradley into her life (Bradley, as in Cooper- get it?!...these things can take me awhile!). Very much looking forward to being taken out on a lunchtime spin soon! 

Meet Bradley, our newest member of Pink Elephant!
