Inside Kimmy's Mind » Macaroons/Macaron


I don’t know why, but I’m in a bit of a blogging lag. I guess finals left me feeling a bit lazy and not wanting to work on my computer. Good news is I passed all of my classes, now just have to keep moving forward. This summer I’m taking statistics and a Spanish class. I’m a bit scared, not sure how this will turn out.

So I’ve been planning on visiting a shop that sells macaroons for awhile now. And last week I finally got around to trying this shop. So cute, but they didn’t have all of the flavors that I wanted to try. But that just means I can go again and again until they do.  I updated awhile back about trying to make these little boogers. So tricky, but they still came out rather yummy. My sister made ours with a jelly glaze filling. The ones we tried at the store had a cream filling. It’s not something I will eat often, but every once in a while they will make for a nice treat. I think buying tiramisu is a lot more satisfying.

So the flavors I tried were:
Chocolate Hazelnut
Cookies and Cream
Chocolate Raspberry


Before the siblings and I went to Petite Sweets, Kat and I spent some time in Rice Village. I had some books to sell and was hoping to get some cash. Only got five bucks back but it became bus money. After that Kat was hungry so she grabbed a sandwich and we waited in the air condition until the bus came to take us to Mija’s office. We were pretty early so we decided to take some pictures. Finally get to update about the new bag I mentioned in this post. I also found the same bag but in different colors for my sisters, Mija and Kat, we have serious matching issues when it comes to some things. The cool thing about this bag is that it can be worn three different ways. As a brief case, as a messenger bag and then as a backpack. bagWe each wear them differently.  So Kat and I decided to have a mini photo shoot because it’s not vain when you have someone else taking the pictures. >.< The weather was hot, but there was a breeze every now and then and it made for a nice day. One of my favorite things about this bag is that it matches most of my clothing.  For some girls it’s shoes, others it’s jewelry, for me it’s definitely bags. And I’ve been wanting a satchel type backpack/messenger bag. I plan on making it some different straps to use when wearing it like a backpack. Using just the one strap seems to put a lot of stress on the pleather and I don’t want to ruin it. A project to be discussed in another entry.

So, what are your favorite accessories to shop for? Is there a section you gravitate when shopping or do you prefer shopping online? Ebay is sure makes it easy to develop a shopping addiction.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

    @Mija, It was very cute, and I wouldn’t mind working there. XD
    And I’m glad you guys liked the bags, I was determined to find different colors and succeeded!!!

    The first macaroon I tried was in HK, when I had my christmas holiday with parents last year. I’m not sure if it’s a standard thing for macaroons but the ones I bought there were really, really sweet! I like pastries and cakes and yea, some sweets but not macaroon’s sweetness. It’s a good “once in a blue moon” kind of bite but not the kind I’d return every week or month to taste, unlike pastries or cakes. Teenagers around me seem to like macaroons so much haha I don’t really get why. maybe because their sweet tooth level is different than mine. I do admit they taste good though but yeah, not a member of my list of favorite sweets.

    On the contrary, they do look pretty for photo taking hahaha colorful small treats 8D macaroons here are expensive though -__- and sometimes it makes me feel like they’re not worth the price.

    3 in 1 bags are the “it” thing now, i guess? even here. my mother’s sort of the bag person too so she always agrees whenever i said i think i need a new bag. sadly, my kind of bag isn’t the way she thought it’d be hahaha i like weird, cartoon backpacks and is not embarrassed to wear it to campus either. xD

    you’re right. girls have different “remedies”. mine has got to be shoes (sneakers too yes, sneakers are good) and jacket 😛

    @Shiki, Yeah, they are pretty pricey so it wont be something I will eat often. But it was nice to finally visit the shop. And they are pretty adorable so they do make for interesting pictures. It’s probably trendy right now.

    I’m actually pretty picky about my bags. So whenever I find a bag I really like I usually use it all the time after getting it. I’m not sure if the 3 in 1 is popular, I just like that I had so many options. >.<

    I like buying shoes sometimes, but I do prefer buying bags. I like jackets, but I live in Texas and we barely have nice weather to wear the nice ones. So I tend to gravitate towards bags…besides looking at clothes.

    Thanks for reading and commenting. :3
