Pizza + Benefit = Happy Fashion Bloggers

It doesn't get much better than delicious Milano pizza and Benefit goodie bags at noon on a showery Saturday in May. And so it was that the 10th Fashion Bloggers' Brunch passed happily in a haze of pizza, indigo mascara and teeny lemon tarts.

Important lessons were learned (when applying Benefit Lip Plump, you want to aim for two dots, blended well, rather than applying a full coat as you would with lipgloss), accessories were admired, politics (or at least political posters) were discussed and a birthday was celebrated.

Thanks as usual to the lovely Annmarie for organising it all - looking forward to next month!

Pierre Hermé, je t'adore.

These are some macarons by Pierre Hermé, kindly provided on arrival at Hotel des Académies et des Arts in Paris last weekend. You may have tried other macarons in the past and thought "Yeah, nice, but isn't it more about how cute they look than what they actually taste like?", but should you ever get the chance to try those made by M. Hermé, don't give it a second thought.

To. Die. For.
