I am sure that today will probably be deemed, "World Moonwalk or Thriller Dance Day" following the death of everyone's beloved M.J. Most of you bloggers have felt the need to share your first encounter with the Pop Prince, so I feel like I should share my 'first time' too...

I was in grade three at Richmond Community Primary School and my favourite Art teacher of all time, Isabelle, let us have free time where we could dance, draw, paint or even clean the classroom if we wanted to (and let me tell you that we all loved Isabelle so much that we would've cleaned!). Of course me and my bestest friend Amanda chose to dance the afternoon away. Isabelle chose a tape and put it in the tape player. The first song that came on was Black & White and I was thrilled thinking, "my mom would never let me listen to this at home!" I was so excited, me and Amanda put together a little dance routine and learnt all the words to the song because we wanted it played over and over and over again...

Anyways, now that I feel like I have properly acknowledged this momentous day where Michael Jackson was layed to rest, I can get on with things that thrill my heart...

I have seen these gorgeous Ladurée Macaroons quite a bit around the blog world. Unfortunately I have not made it to Paris to try one first hand, but the pretty colours and amazing flavours that have been matched together do make my mouth water. Just imagine: jasmine/mango, blackcurrent/violet, vanilla, orange blossum, caramel, chocolate, raspberry, pistachio...

If you have tasted these famous macaroons in either Paris, London, Monaco, Geneva or Tokyo, please comment and let me know what you thought of them! I would love to know if they taste as good as they look!

Was just at Ladurée - it was good http://socialect.com/posts/560 though I like Pierre Hermé better. Gérard Mulot is good also http://socialect.com/posts/544
