[ treat yourself for no reason ]

EVER HAVE one of those days when you just feel like treating yourself? No special occasion or anything, just to feel special for no reason at all?

That's how I felt yesterday and so while I was keeping cool in Dubai Mall, I happened to pass by Ladurée and instead of just walking by and admiring those gorgeous macarons from afar, I made a bee-line and stepped inside.


This shop is the epitome of pretty. The displays, the packaging, the gorgeous selection of sweets... how could I not want a tiny taste of it?


I settled on a little selection of 6 gorgeous macarons all nestled in a beautiful green box... chocolat, caramel a la fleur de sel, praliné, café and framboise.


Of course since my motto around here is always "sharing is caring", I did hold-off on eating the entire 6 and shared with my guy.

Have you treated yourself lately?

I just had a 100 calorie Klondike ice cream sandwich. And had thumbprint cookies for breakfast. :) I think everyone should have a sweet treat each and every day. :) Hope your Thursday is good. Tammy

I'm into this whole brown sugar with baby oil and vitamin E scrub...and a one scoop of vanilla ice cream with a spoonful of toffee and chocolate sprinkles from the farmers market...
Lisa, you are so fortunate to have Laduree at the mall...I have a feeling the malls in Dubai are AMAZING. I think you have found the pinnacle of retail therapy!
Thanks for sharing the journey!

This is one gorgeous shop! Definitely getting better at treating myself well, planning a spa day with girlfriends to celebrate the release of issue 2 of HOF! :)

Laduree was one of my favorite shops when I went to Paris. I had a hard time keeping myself away! Well, I guess I just treated myself with a trip to Maui, so that's a pretty good start!

Such simple pleasures bring so much delight! And good macarons certainly fall into that category. Funny how such a little thing can be SO ridiculously delicious. Perhaps it is the sense of indulgence, almost guilt, that makes them so nice?

Unfortunately treating myself to too many wrong things:) I sure dont need those extra cookies, or ice cream or that chocolate bar that is screaming my name..lol. Glad Lauduree is not nearby it would not be a pretty site, they would know me on a first name basis the first week! But how good does it feel to indulge? GREAT if you ask me!!!!!

I've just eaten a profiterole, but I think I could handle your macarons too! I'm happy to hear you treated yourself!
