Kidneys + Chocolate

I have been consumed with Kidneys and Chocolate; not that this is a bad thing. I've so thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of purpose and the NEED to do things. You wouldn't believe how generous people are! 
I've finally gotten all my print work done (handbills, stickers, tickets and posters.) Here's a little sneak-peak at the lovely branding:

Classy hand bills
STICKERS! * for sale*

Official Invites

As an additional little nudge-in, I finally buckled down and painted; I absolutely fell in love with this mis-mash of spring flowers. You can't tell it's 3 pictures squeezed into one can you.....?

Dream Come True

Hold the phones kids, I made macaroons and they worked! They tasted delicious and they worked!!

My three little babies (toasted almond perfection no less)

Chocolate ganache + vanilla bean butter cream

Chocolate ganache, raspberry jam + vanilla bean butter cream

Salted home made dulce de leche + vanilla bean butter cream

You may wonder why there are only three. I actually made three giant meringues and these were the little orbs of sticky marshmallow that I decided to save. 

To emphasize how happy I am that these macaroons were a success, I also have to note that two of the three (uncooked) meringue plummeted to the floor and down the heating vent-literally beside the oven. I wish I had pictures to share with you lovelies, but I can't say I was in the mood for documenting at that moment. 

Toils aside, macaroons!! Happy Easter!
Ps they'e kosher too bitches!

Wicked Shoes

The fact that I did absolutely nothing this weekend was made up by the fact that I scored these unreal leather mary janes at The Vintage Ramble for $5.

Also, DESTROYED this book, highly recommend.

SURPRISE! Mom got this kitschy necklace too
