i finally, finally, finally was able to make a trip out to paulette, a couple of weeks ago, for some macarons. and honestly i have no idea how i've lived so long without this place! 

a feast for your eyes and belly! not only does this place look amazing, the macarons taste incredible as well! some days i contemplate making the dive out to beverly hills just to get my hands on a box of goodness that these macarons are {yes, they're that good}. 

don't live near LA? fear not! paulette offers online ordering with overnight shipping!!




sicilian pistachio


caramel - one of my faves!


columbian coffee - another one of my faves!


sweet wedding almond




lemon - this one tasted like it had a lemon bar inside!


after filling up on macarons we were off to silverlake for some tea & coffee from intelligentsia.







and finally to complete the day we met up with more friends for dinner at frida... 



enchiladas poblanas - cheese enchiladas dipped in chile chocolate sauce. yes, the chile chocolate sauce is as amazing as it sounds!!


three more places to add to my growing list of things that affirm my love of LA :)
