MacarOn Café: A Taste of France

MacarOn Cafe: A Taste of France

Okay, I just couldn’t stay away… The mouth-watering delights from MacarOn Café are just too tasty! So my friends at MacarOn Cafe in NYC sent me another assortment of their heavenly confections, and upon seeing these colorful pastries, I was immediately inspired. This goodie-filled go’round included fabulous flavors like Peanut Butter & Jelly, Choco-Raspberry, Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Coconut, and Raspberry. Not only are these French treats fun to eat, but they’re fun to look at, too! So I decided to embark on my own little taste-inspired Tour de France right here in Atlanta, and I took my macarons with me (as if I would let them out of my sight!). Continue Reading…

Cancun Chic

Nikka Shae Cancun

Hey Lovelies!

Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to the tropics on a sun-filled getaway in uber-chic Cancun, Mexico courtesy of the fabulous Travel Divas. Surrounded by gasp-worthy views at every turn, the uh-mazing Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun resort was the perfect backdrop to a wonderful week of pampering, private cabanas, lots of Sangria, and plenty of poolside posing.

So in the tradition of “Divas & Destinations” here are a few seaside styles that I rocked during my stay in lovely Cancun. Enjoy! Continue Reading…

Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary.
