Heaven is Macaron Cocktails at Ladurée
I was going to post my photos of the bar at the Champs Elysées Ladurée - the epitome of the French/macaron/pastry/girlie experience - but they came out slightly blurry because I was trying to sneak them. It just seemed too gauche to take pictures in such a breathtaking wonderland of sugary delights. So instead I give your theirs; it's what the bar in heaven must look like. I was standing right at the door when the bar opened, queuing to get some macarons at the shop and lamenting the wait time for the cafe (I made up for it a few days later when a friend came to visit) and my eyes nearly fell out when I looked into the room. And guess what they serve there? Macaron cocktails!
I am going to be in Paris in a couple weeks, alone. I am not averse to going for a drink by myself if it means having a macaron cocktail. But what if I want a second? Does that border on rather sad? Maybe if I drink four or five I won't care about appearances. Actually, that's a given.
Let's not stop there. There's too much Ladurée dreaminess to share:

Oh, why did I do that to myself as I'm about to eat a cheeseburger...
