These macaroons [fraise-vanille, to be exact] from Dominique Saibron just happened to be super photogenic the other day.
As spring was approaching I figure I’d get some colorful macaroons to snack on while cleaning up the apartment. Little did I come to find that these little homies were just too cute to not take photos of! Hence the reason for having a post of two macaroons…. They were, indeed, delicious. Un petit goût d’une spécialité française.
More close ups of sweets to come, because I just find them so attractive and scrumptious!
As Spring approaches, I want more sweets. However, I miss my good old American snacks… not gonna lie. Gobstoppers, Sweettarts, Tootsie Rolls… a different genre, but it’s in the back of my head and always is first on my list of things I miss in the states-io!
However, I still like French sweets. And taking pictures of French sweets.
Gotta get some more. These are already making my mouth water. What are other good candies? Oh snap, I’m a sweet tooth, but not as much as a certain Brazilian I know… Vane….!!!!!
I feel ashamed to say that I have been in Paris for so long but I never went to appreciate the preciousness of the 2nd around Etienne Marcel (line 4) and Sentier (line 3).
Boy was I dumb- it is too cute! Rue Montmarte leads to Rue Tiquetonne (very à la française, often where photos like on the Sartorialist are taken, amongst other street fashion blogs) which is right on Rue Montorgueile which is just packed with cafés and shops. You can get carried away… especially in Kiliwatch. Vintage shoes and urban clothing, foulards galore! While you’re at it pop by Royal Cheese and admire their Cheap Monday denim wall… It is definitely a different atmosphere on this side of town!
On the one day where it happened to be 18 degrees (Celsius) , Caro and I were roaming the 2nd. All the springtime chairs were out for the sidewalk cafés with their walls folded back to get some of the sun and passerbys. We stumbled upon Le Coeur Fou, and Le Café Noir. Perfect places for a glass of red wine and a good conversation.
Stroll down Rue Montorgeuil and Rue Tiquetonne… you’re bound to find a few things you like.
