Happy Spring: 18th century fashion, floral fragrances and some recipes to try

 Ladurée desserts!

It is (finally) a very warm day in NYC and I can't help but think spring.  I hope everyone else is getting nicer weather and ready for flowers and sunny days.  Here are some links to kick off this very springy weekend!



Springy Roundup

The Grand Duchess of Tuscany channels springtime thoughts with this outfit

Lemon macarons recipe + tutorial, will you try to make them?

Madame de Saint-Maurice is inspired by a spring time palette 

This recipe is straight from the 18th century, updated to be made in a 21st century kitchen! A simple dessert to try: Blown Almonds

I took spring cleaning seriously and used the Konmari approach to organizing my clothes

Dior's Trianon make-up collection was inspired by Marie Antoinette's gardens

Book suggestion: Ladurée: The Sweet Recipes - amazing dessert recipes from the Paris bakery to try this spring. Impress everyone!

I pin images of women in art throughout the ages on my Pinterest pinboard A Lark with a Golden Helmet and Spear.  Interested in art history? Want to join this board to add to it? Leave a comment below!

Flowers & Spring go so well together. Check out these fragrances inspired by the 18th century and Marie Antoinette and her love of flowers!

And now, practice your French and take a mini-trip to Paris with this fun video!

Happy Spring!
