#frugalfashionista : more macaroons pour moi

I’ve found it a rare sighting for macaroons in the states, even in the major metropolitan cities. Luckily I found one small bakery a city over that sells them, but they’re quite expensive, so when I buy from them it’s usually a special treat. 

And Of course, after all my wishing that more bakeries in the states would take an interest in producing macaroons, I would stumble across them in the monopoly of a retailer who has “everything.” Never did I imagine that walmart of all places would carry these goodies. 

Sure enough in their frozen dessert section sits a box of 12 macaroons. I finally thawed them out today for my after dinner treat. They aren’t nearly as divine as fresh ones but they do the trick and are still quite tasty. Feeling a little nostalgic for Paris? Here you go…

Much love – MA 





#frugalfashionista : mcdonalds macaroon mania

Ok so laduree is a must when vacationing in Paris, but if you’ve “been there done that” then you know there’s no need to be paying 2.5 euros per one macaroon! 

I love laduree for all it’s splendor, but I also love macaroons, but I don’t love the idea of spending all my money on so few. Well lucky for you almost every mcdonalds in Europe has an exquisite extension of a mc cafe that we don’t have in the states. And that mc cafe in Paris includes one that has macaroons….and at 4.5 euros for 6 pieces! Sounds better doesn’t it? They still taste quite yummy too for their value. 

Much love – MA
