My Top 5 Desserts

Sweetlist

If you follow me on Instagram you know that i’ve been doing the Pressed Juicery juice cleanse this week. As today is my final day on the cleanse ( day 5) , I thought I would show you WHY I decided to go on a cleanse. As you all know by now I suffer from a major, let me repeat MAJOR, sweet tooth. I’m generally pretty good about keeping up a healthy balanced diet (working out daily + portion control) , but this past month I really allowed myself to indulge in the finer & sweeter things in life ( it was my birthday month, ok??? ).  I’ve never done a full 5 day cleanse before, but I thought it would be a great way to reboot & detox my system. BUT before I go ahead and start talking about the cleanse , I figured it would only make sense to share with you my top 5 SWEET discoveries  from this past month.

1. DeLuscious Cookies & Milk

The other day I was having a tough day at work, and of course my best friend Linette sends me a very yummy surprise to my office. It was a HUGE box  of freshly baked cookies that are incredibly moist & tasty which also was delivered with a cute glass carton of milk. The Chocolate and Cinammon Sugar cookies were my absolute favorite. If any of you are looking for a thoughtful gift to send to your loved ones , trust me, this box of delight would put a huge smile on anyones face! (They also have vegan & gluten free options too!) I’m possibly thinking of sending a box of these to my mom for mother’s day!

2. Ladurée Soho 

After my Paris trip i’ve been having endless fantasies of croissants and macarons, so when I went to New York last week I had to make a visit to the Ladurée in Soho. Although in Paris there’s much competition , in the states I still have yet to find a  macaron parlor better than Ladurée. My favorite? The Rose petal macarons!

3. Beckers Bakery 

Randomly stumbled upon this bakery as I was walking my dogs in my neighborhood. Found these adorable surfboard cookies. They are a little too cute to eat, but nonetheless the surfboards were all gone by the end of the day!

4. Des Crêpes et des Cailles

Possibly the best crepe i’ve ever had was in Paris at a hole in a wall crêperie.  The location was so tiny that it probably sat no more than 15 people total. They make everything from sweet to savory crepes. I went to this place one too many times when I was in Paris for 2 weeks, but I mean who wouldn’t go back for that  Nutella banana crepe? yummmmm.

5. One Girl Cookies

I saved the best for last. A few weeks ago I received a lovely  package from Eva Chen of Lucky Magazine. She sent over 2 boxes of spiced pumpkin & chocolate whoopie pies from One Girl Cookies (as seen HERE). These cream cheese frosting whoopie pies are a crossbred of a cake and a cookie.  Possibly the most moist and tasty treats i’ve ever had. Although this makes a sweet gift to give to your friends, family, and coworkers…they might end up love/hating you. Once you eat one… you really can’t stop!

Writing this article on day 5 of my juice cleanse was probably not the best idea, but needless to say  my month of birthday indulgence was absolutely worth it! I hope you guys enjoyed my SWEET list , and if you guys have any recommendations on other places, please let me know in the comment section!

HAPPY FRIDAY !

I, too, have a major sweet tooth and find difficult to resist desserts. I have been following a low Carb diet but sometimes I too give in to this temptation of eating sweets especially cakes and puddings. They are my weakness. I workout five days a week but I’ve been trying not to see the pictures in this post because I don’t want to crave for all sweets that I’ve been trying to avoid.

My mouth is watering…

Also, to anyone saying that “this is a fashion blog” and to the person who said it was “narcissistic”…news flash, this is CHRISELLE’S blog and she can post whatever she damn well pleases. She posts 95% fashion/beauty stuff, why can’t she post other stuff once in a while?

Samantha ( April 26, 2014 at 8:07 AM )

    Thank you Samantha for your support, means a lot! I think fashion is beyond the clothes you wear…it’s a lifestyle! Although I post mostly about fashion, i’ve been posting more and more about food and travel as they both are a huge passion of mine :) You are so sweet, and I hope you have a lovely weekend! xoxo Chriselle

So, are recommending to do detox or to indulge in sweets? You are sending a very contradicting message here.Thought this was a fashion blog. I find this website a bit too narcissistic I’m afraid. :-(

HUH? ( April 25, 2014 at 11:25 AM )

    I’m an everyday girl that loves sweets, but also on the contrary believe in living a healthy balanced life. Yes, Sweets and healthy food are contradicting, but nonetheless I believe in allowing yourself to indulge every once in a while. I work out very hard, and stay disciplined during the week, but in the month of April I really allowed myself to indulge in my favorite things as it was my birthday month! I think it would be a problem if it happened everyday. It’s all about balance…working hard and treating yourself :) Have a great day! xoxo Chriselle

    Chriselle ( April 26, 2014 at 6:23 PM )

I’m usually the sweet tooth person but all those photos are making me want to eat them!!! Cravings start now!

    copying and pasting what I wrote to the comment above who had a similar comment- ” I’m an everyday girl that loves sweets, but also on the contrary believe in living a healthy balanced life.
