Three Very Important Things You Must Know Now

April 13, 2016


Erin Schrader

1. Macarons. Certainly you have had one [or one hundred] right? Holy sweet balls of fire are they good. But not just any macarons though, Dana’s Bakery Macarons.
What started out in 2012 in a small kitchen, Dana herself has since dominated this treat in the best way possible. With flavors ranging from red velvet, strawberry shortcake, s’mores, key lime pie, birthday cake, chocolate molten, etc – you can’t go wrong with these puffs of goodness [see all of the other flavors of fun here]. I received my first box and I am absolutely hooked. I couldn’t help but go for the witty and cute inspiration box that had all my favorite sayings on them.
Shawn and I took turns taking bites out of each and every one of them and it was very serious business. You haven’t experienced romance with your husband until you’ve stood over your kitchen island eating 12 macarons in a matter of minutes. If you’d like to try these for yourself [trust me, you do] or have somebody that you would like to send a special gift to, Dana’s Bakery has got you covered. You can build your own box or sign up for your own monthly subscription box. Don’t forget to sign up for their email list to save 10% off your first order! My personal favorites you ask? I was a big fan of the chocolate molten and orange creamsicle. YOU GUYS. Try them, you won’t be disappointed.


2. I started a new Instagram account because what’s life with just one right? It all started when I was about to post an outfit selfie on my @livinginyellow account and I thought to myself, “self. why don’t you do this more often?” because that’s what all modest and humble people think. And so that’s when @liylookoftheday was born. A whole IG feed dedicated to my daily outfits. My goals of this account [yes, I make instagram goals, I have a life, I know this, stop] are to not just share my daily outfits, but inform you of awesome deals going on, my real thoughts on how things fit/feel/etc and connect with other fashion minded people. So if you are into any or all of the above, make sure to find me over there. Yes, I’ll still be posting on my regular IG account because duuuuuuuh, bubble baths and wine glasses aren’t going to document themselves.

3. I haven’t had macaroni and cheese since March 31st. I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME BUT I AM FREAKING OUT A LITTLE. OKAY A LOT. SEND HELP. I might be dying. I think that’s what’s happening because there is clearly no other logical explanation here. Crap, it’s been real guys. Love you.
