My lovely aunt at Ladurée !!!

Sometimes is good to pamper yourself and feel special.
Because you ARE!!!

I only really treat myself once or twice a year but when I do, I love to go to Ladurée.
This time, I went with a very special person: my aunt!

Here she is showing one of her favourite pages of my last book.

She is the one with whom I spent the greatest holidays in my childhood.
She was always spoiling me and making me feel great and special all the time.
She would buy me really girly stuff like: pink and glittery clothes, shiny shoes with tiny heels and pink nail-polish.
In fact, she would get me anything that was forbidden at home by my parents!
My heroine!!!!

So, this time, I thought it would be nice to give the same in return.
No...not glittery clothes and pink nail polish...but, something to make her feel special.

So we went to Ladurée at Covent Garden!

This delicious Ispahan didn't last long, believe me!

My lovely auntie tried to take several pictures of me but it seems that photograpy isn't part of her skills...he!he!

Anyway, we truly felt like princesses and it was such a delightful time to spend together.

Next time, I would love to go with her and my mother.
I will have to write about my mum one day.
She lives far, far away in Australia and I miss her like crazy.
Super big sigh...

The dolls had a last photo session and were delivered to Benjamin Pollock's after our meal.

Covent Garden was illuminated with Christmas lights but I forgot to take some pictures as my aunt and I were too busy chatting and giggling!

Then , at the end of the day,we had to part.
On my way home, on the train, I remembered all the good times we had together, how she made my childhood special and it gave me a huge smile on my face.

Happy thoughts and happy memories...

I hope you do have many too.

I love Covent Garden, so what a lovely place to take your special aunt for a treat. And your latest dolls are so pretty, I particularly like Alice.

Are you curious about me? said...

It's wonderful that you have someone like your aunt in your life and have all of those special memories with her. It looks like the two of you just made another one.

Quelle belle journée! C'est très joli ce que tu as écrit sur ta tante. Moi qu suis une tante j'espère que mon neveu et ma nièce auront d'aussi beaux souvenirs de moi...
Très belles tes poupées, j'aime beaucoup Alice.

Pat, that's simply wonderful and I know Mum had a lovely time.

Keep up the great work - we're all very proud of what you're doing and the commitment you've shown in realising your dream - well done!

Anyway, enough of this saccharine nonsense - more importantly, where's MY blooming cake?!?!?

Huge hugs,

Hello from Australia! I wish I had known about Ladurée at Covent Garden when I was in London- however I did treat my partner and myself to dinner at the Ritz, we really felt special there!
Your dolls are so pretty, I love the expression an Alice's face. It was lovely to meet you while we were in England.
I look forward to popping in to visit you in 'blogland' and seeing all your pretty dolls come to life.
