My Second Attempt making Macarons

Since my first attempt making Macarons was an epic fail, I decided to remake it again.  I really want to learn and master making these adorable french cookies.  I now know why buying macarons are so expensive because these cookies takes a lot of time making it.  I decided to remake it by using the Italian Meringue way. From what I learned on some youtube videos and blogs, they stated that Italian meringue way is more easier and forgiving to make a perfect macarons which means your cookies won't break that easily when baking.

Here are some tips I could offer:
  • Know your oven really well
  • Invest in a baking mat
  • Be patience 
The patience comes in when you have to set your macarons at least 15 - 30 mins depending on the weather. I also learned that do not make macarons when it's raining cause it takes longer for the macaron to form that hard shell texture before putting it in the oven. Here are some pics that I remake my macarons. I decided to make Black Sasame Macarons with Honey Butter cream filling. I really enjoy eating this however it's pretty sweet, very crunchy on the outside and very moist and chewy in the inside. The most I can eat is just 2 cause of the sweetness and the black sesame combine really pops in my mouth when biting these little cookies. Also I want to indicate that this cookies takes a long time to make. I made 2 dozen cookies and I had only one pan on me so next time I will get two pans so this way it'll be faster if I remake this again.

My Five Essentials Makeup Items

This idea post was brought up to me after reading prettymom's post of her 5 items she uses within 10 minutes.  It never occurs to me or I never had the time to count how many makeup items I use on my daily routine when getting ready.  I know for a fact I don't use a lot as well.

The only essential items I use are:
  • Bobbi Brown BB cream 
  • Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil 
  • Prestige Eyeliner 
  • Paul and Joe Blush 
  • Bobbi Brown Concealer 

Applying Lipstick is depending on my mood.  I haven't been wearing or sporting lipstick a lot these days, probably the fact I'm really in a hurry and just don't have that extra time to applying it.

My 5 essential makeup items gives me a simple and clean look of the day.
