Weekend Cravings

This week has been rather hectic. Only one more week of summer classes, and I'm finishing up at my summer training site. I'm finding it hard to stay motivated at this point. My brain is just *blah*. However, I did manage to squeeze in a salon day and a bit of shopping for hubby's birthday...which is TODAY!! We will be celebrating tonight, so I will be sure to take pictures to share. While birthday shopping for hubby, I fell in love with a (faux) fur vest at Zara. My voice of reason whispered, "Um, you live in Florida. What use could you possibly have for a fur vest?" But I quickly had visions of wearing the vest with dresses and boots or over tanks and leggings. It reminded me of a piece the Olsens would wear. There was only one size Small left, which I took as a sign that I was meant to have it. So now I am eagerly awaiting the slightest drop in temperature to break out my beautiful fur vest.

Meanwhile, I am having a serious craving for these little beauties...

There is nowhere (that I know of) in this part of Florida to get them. So I'm considering attempting to make some myself. Have any of you ever tried making French macaroons? From what I've been reading, it seems like a rather delicate process.

I'm also seriously craving this scent, which I stumbled across the other day...

{Tocca Brigitte perfume}

I was initially attracted to the pretty bottle, so I spritzed some on while wandering the isles at Sephora. I didn't pay too much attention to it until I got home and the scent really started to develop. Even Heaven was drawn to the delicious smell on my wrist (although she probably thought it may be some kind of food smell...I think that's all she cares about). This perfume is definitely going on my list of Fall Must Haves.

What are you currently craving?

Happy B-day to your hubs! And the vest sounds fabulous - I think you totally need it, regardless of the Florida weather, ha! And as for macaroons, if you do make them, tell me about it because I've been wondering about it as well! Hope you're having a great Sunday!

Love macaroons, never attempted to make them though..

I'm currently craving thai food, although I just read someone's craving that read "banana split," and that sounds even better right now!

girl, the more I read your blog, the more we have in common. My hubby's birthday is in 2 weeks!

And macarons! I LOVE them. I ate my weight in them when I was in Paris.

FYI- there is a place in New Orleans that makes them. You can even order them from their website.

if you come back out toward new orleans, let me know and I will tell you where to find the shop. Or I could take you there!
