Well, this week felt like the first week of Spring over here in California. Sorry for all of those that are living where it snows... but the first trees are now blooming, the daffodils are in full bloom, and everything else is budding out!
1.This beautiful house in Provence! It is owned by Frederic Fekkai (you know, of shampoo fame). It was featured in March's Architectural Digest issue. You need to check it out here
I just *love* this driveway entrance to his house. LOVE.
We went to Napa Valley this week... just because. It was 80 degrees there! It was so pretty as the mustard was all blooming. I don't drink so I never go to Napa for the wine, but instead for food, shopping, and taking in the pretty views!
Had fun playing around with my new perfume, called Do Son by Diptyque. It has a nice scent for Spring.. tuberose, orange leaves, pink peppercorn, rose, and iris.
Went to Bouchon Bakery in Yountville. Previously I had been to the one in Las Vegas and wasn't too impressed... I think perhaps the 110 degree heat didn't treat the pastries very well.... because this time I had shared an almond croissant which was very good, a lemon currant scone which was tasty, and a hazelnut macaron which was also quite nice. I recommend going here. Oh, the salted caramel latte was delicious! oh yum yum! Check out Bouchon Bakery and the locations here
5. Love Macarons
I leave you with this croquembouche-style macaron tree.
