More Macarons

Yes, my obsession with macarons has reached an all new peak. I printed out this flavor poster and hung it in my cube at work. It is safe to assume my productivity has fallen off a cliff. Well, my work productivity has. Saliva production is at an all time high. Seriously, do you know how much I just stare at it and drool? I’m doing it now!

I was completing my morning newspaper-reading and came across this article, on those Judith Leiber clutches (#7). I don’t know what you could even fit in them besides a tissue, but hot damn they are adorable. Macarons have obviously been on my mind recently, but they’re also popping up everywhere these days. Clearly macarons are having their moment in the sun. Well, actually, since they have to be kept chilled, they are having their moment in the bottom shelf of your refrigerator (where Ladurée insists they are kept once you take them home).

1. Scarf / 2. Necklace / 3. Lip balm / 4. Pillow / 5. Wallet / 6. Tote bag / 7. Clutch

I got to thinking about all of the macaron-printed goodies over at Bonjour Mon Coussin and realized I needed to make some sort of compilation of all the yumminess.  Between the scarf, pillow, clutch and bag, I am totally overwhelmed by how simultaneously delicious and evil all of it is. Sure, I would LOSE MY MIND over having a wallet or pillow covered in macarons. But I’m already totally useless just by having a poster hanging on my desk, I don’t think I’d ever be a functioning human being again if I had any of these things. Lip balm that smells like macarons, are you kidding me?? An adorable polymer clay necklace? Pretty sure I’d eat it. One time when I was 3 I ate an eraser my parents won for me on the boardwalk down the shore because it looked like a strawberry; clearly I am a threat to devour things that are not intended to be edible. And considering the lip balms $10 each, that’s actually a more expensive snack than actual macarons. But hey, Urban Outfitters is offering free shipping on everything before the holidays, so maybe it evens out?  If I had to pick one thing to buy, it would be that tote bag, even though it’s $60 after the conversion rate.

What about you? How cute is that necklace though, seriously? Etsy is swimming with more of necklaces of equal cuteness: rainbow cake, snowcones, and sushi!

  • OMG! The necklace is adorable! And, NO, I wouldn’t wear it!

    • But it would look so cute on you! Perhaps a bit age inappropriate, but hey.

  • OMG I saw that Judith Leiber article yesterday and sooo thought of you! Hope that doesn’t make me a stalker- just a fellow macaron lover! Glad you saw it!

    • Ha! I love that you read that and thought of me! What a great association for someone to have with me :)

  • OMG you are obsessed! I must admit I don’t really like them. Eek, I’m for the blogchop now! One is nice, anymore and I think they taste a bit weird. And to think I walked past that entire cake stand of them on Saturday…..

    • Oh my gosh, one would never satisfy me. I need like, 15!

  • I would just like to point out that all three of you started your comments off the EXACT SAME WAY. Freaky!

    • OMG so we did!

      • You crack me up!

  • You and the macarons. I don’t get it! I hate them!

    • What! I didn’t even know that was a possible reaction to have to macarons!

  • Love this fun and colorful collection!!

    • Thank you, Laura!

  • […] Of course, along with my “move-to-Paris” fantasy comes the fact that I would spend all of my money on macarons. This year was definitely the year of macarons for me, and I didn’t even have that many! Maybe somewhere around 30? Definitely not enough, but at what they cost (including getting to New York to buy them) perhaps I shouldn’t go overboard. Macarons are definitely my favorite food of 2011, and yes I said food not dessert because if given the opportunity, I would eat these for all 3 meals a day and find some way to puree them over ice and drink it as a smoothie. I got a rose scented hand lotion as a stocking stuffer for Christmas and the first thing I thought of was that it smells exactly like a rose macaron from Ladurée. I then proceeded to lick my hand. Can you imagine how obese I would be if I had the luxury of living in Paris and being near any one of the 3 Ladurée stores? My love (and slow descent into addiction) of macarons can be read here, here, and here. […]
