The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years. The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The world's dreamiest desserts!

It may seem silly, but L'aduree is a place where well, happiness, stands still. Unchangeable, frozen in time and simply makes me smile.

What makes L'aduree a dream? My favourite dreamiest desserts:
* Macarons
*Saint Honoré

I decided to learn a little more about these iconic desserts and here is what i found out!
Created in the mid 19th century, what is it made of?
Two choux pastry cases, a large one and a small one on top, filled with the perfectly made buttercream or Chantilly cream and decorated to perfection!

* Macarons:-
Created in the begining of the 20th century byPierre Desfontaines, the second cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, who was the first person to think of joining 2 macaron shells with a center of ganache filling!

*Saint Honoré:-
Is basically made up of many size of choux pastry and are piled on top of each other with the delicate pastry cream called Chiboust. The Saint Honore dessert was named as such in respect to the patron saint of bakers.
I found a beautiful, stunning video that spot on describes how i feel when i enter any L'aduree boutique! Check out the L'aduree dream!
