Laudree macaroons and makeup.... Color me good!

Get ready for beautiful pastel eyeshadows the colors of your favorite Laudree macarons!  It has been announced the iconic macaron creator is launching a beauty line which will premier in Japan in February.  I certainly hope the packaging is the same iconic color as well.

Entitled 'Les Merveilleuses de Laudree' (or The Wonders of Laudree).  Albion will created the 20 blush colors, foundations, lipsticks.  Roll out will continue in Europe prior to U.S. arrival.
I can only dream of kabuki wearing these magical colors, while donning vintage Japanese kimonos.  What a vision that would be!

John Mayer on the range...

John Mayer has unfortunately been laying low, while he recovers from recent surgery on his throat.  While on the mend, he's been traveling the open range.  From the looks of these images, his eye is just as talented as his mending vocal chords (pun).

I say, he's got the potential to be the next Ansel Adams.  I cannot wait until, he hits the road again... this time to tour!  I love you John!  Let the music play.... and pack plenty of Ricola!

Consider LOVE... with Sandra Boynton

Sometime ago I discovered a beautiful cheery book on Love by Sandra Boynton.
I share it with friends in both new and old relationships.
Let me share it with you too.

In the spirit of the Holiday season, it's a great little book, BIG on LOVE.  Why not share it!  

Written and illustrated by Sandra Boynton a prolific and revered greeting card designer and  Children's book author.
