I have always had this feeling like I wanted to write, although up until now not exactly sure what about. I feel like writing is something that I enjoy to do and can do quite well, in fact it’s something I pride myself in. Writing for me is the best way I can get across and express the thoughts and feelings that I am not able to do otherwise, especially face-to-face with people.
Thus after a lot of thought I decided to try my hand at writing a blog, and that is what lead me to create Macarons & Bubbly. This space will be a place where I will post and write about things that I have discovered and find interesting, such as exhibitions, fashion, interior design, food, restaurants, travel, books, movies, and cool things I find on websites like Pinterest (which has become one of my favourite sites to visit every day!). The posts will consist of fun stuff but sometimes also more serious topics, such as little pieces of wisdom I have learnt in life, or something career related since I am a driven career woman who is drawn towards success.
So why did I choose the name “Macarons & Bubbly”? When I lived in Paris I fell in love with Versailles and the history behind its splendor, in particular Marie Antoinette. There is a particular image that my mind conjures up when I think about the palace and also Paris, a kind of soft elegance and luxury. And when I think of Paris, one of the first things that comes to mind for me are macarons which are these little almond meringue type cookies, which come in a huge variety of pastel colors and flavors, sandwiched together with ganache or buttercream. They are so pretty and delicate, and evoke a girlie yet sophisticated image of a woman who is enjoying them with a café crème or tea. They have been made famous by the patisserie Ladurée in France, which is one of my favorite places to visit. As for champagne, well what better represents sophistication, class, elegance and luxury, and is iconically Parisian than a glass of champagne bubbly. It’s one of life’s little pleasures and goes well with the delicious macarons. So I chose this name because I want to this blog to be a place where I can talk about a variety of things that fit into a lifestyle I am trying to create, but as I say in the tag line with a sprinkling of luxury throughout. It’s a space that will be girlie and fun but ultimately still sophisticated and elegant, just like me.
This is my little project in my pursuit to find my passion and purpose in life, and I hope that you will join me on this journey and enjoy it with me! Xx M
