la vie est belle

we just signed up for netflix, so i ended up spending the whole weekend watching audrey tautou movies (amélie, priceless,and he loves me, he loves me not) and listening to clémentine.  for some reason, it turned out to be a very french filled weekend.  i have a pretty compulsive personality, so i had to complete the weekend with a trip to my favorite french bakery in seattle, bakery nouveau.

if you’re ever in seattle, you MUST visit this place.  they have the BEST almond croissants anywhere.  they’re so good, i actually requested the hubby to stick one in my mouth right before i die.  they also have great pizzas (my fav. is spicy sausage), sandwiches, cake… basically everything in the store is crazy yummy.

*bakery nouveau must try:  twice baked almond croissant, chocolate twice baked almond croissant, praline dream, spicy sausage pizza, croissant club sandwich, phoenix cake, their macarons are good, but not the best.

it’s only february, but i am pretty much in spring mode already, hence the light and bright colors.  unfortunately, sunday was a bit cold, so i had to keep my coat on, which meant my cute vintage cuff was hidden the whole time.  speaking of cuffs, i’m really excited for the comeback of cuffs this year.  i can’t wait until the weather gets warmer, so i can start wearing them with everything!

Loved the outfit, you look beyond cute, loved the neutral colors, that bag is gorge no question! … But I have a problem with those macaroons … they look so yummie, now I’m craving them, can’t stop staring cause that’s the closest I’ll get due to dieting! … Loved the cuff by the way!

macarons are about a little less than 200 calories. i’m sure you can spare your intake at least one day a week! they’re so yummy and cute, it’s worth it!
