A la folie ma Cherie……
Melbourne. Macaron. Melbourne. Macaron. Anyone else a little pleased by this trend? There is something about all their shiny candy colourdness that makes me happy. They are so pretty and simple and lady like (but still totally cool for men of course). So when last week CJ mentioned a new specialist had opened in Royal Arcade I knew we had to go and check it out. Positioned in the middle of the arcade, A La Folie, is more of an inner counter than a shop. It's so prettily decked out with just the ... Read More

Today this charming little gem was being presided over by the equally charming mother of the owner. She happily chatted and assisted the steady stream of customers and walked ... Read More
