    Ladurée Macarons and Ladurée Chocolate books

    A delicious calorie free present for the holidays. Did you know Ladurée has two shops in NYC now? In the middle of the twentieth century, Pierre Desfontaines, cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, created the first Ladurée macaron by having the genius to stick two macaron cookies together and fill them with a flavorful ganache. Ever since then, the preparation has stayed the same. Each season Ladurée celebrates this little round cake that’s crispy outside and soft inside, a perfect balance of aromas and textures, by creating new flavors. Each year the palette of flavors and colors grows, from the classic chocolate or raspberry to festive macarons, exotic flavours for certain destinations,…

    Antojeria La Popular: Killer Mexican Tapas @lapopularnyc

    I absolutely adore SOHO for shopping but beside Bar 89 I haven’t found a good place to eat. But lo and behold, 50 Spring St has a new spot that is easily going to be a regular in my books!

    24 Hours in Soho

    As some of you know I have been working with Sturm und Drang throughout this year in Geneva and also Frankfurt. This past week, they held their very first workshop in NYC and right in the heart of Soho. It was an amazing experience to pow wow with trend experts, hair stylists and of course the product development team from P&G. Day 1 consists of a brain monsoon (not just any storm) and lots of creative drawings from the Brooklyn based artist Joshua David Mckenney aka Joshua David.  He made a lot of our fast & funky ideas come to life and helped get our wild thoughts out of paper. …
