{Lovely Finds} Popelini & ENCHANTED giveaway

It’s been a few moons since I’ve pushed
the pastry porn envelope, soooooo

i t ‘ s  P o p e l i n i
t i m e.


Oui oui.
A patisserie in Paris.
A sensual mix of empty wasteful
calories with creamy oozie goodness inside.
They’re choux a la creme.
They’re cream puffs.
(and they have gluten
so they’ll zap
me puffy
in more


I mean!
Look at beret icedlovely tops!

Move over, unrefined empty wasteful jelly donut.
Step off, messy not-terribly-tidy-to eat cupcake.

Paris' New Pastry 4

Popelini is named for the Italian
pastry chef who came up with
the recipe for choux in 1540
at the court of Catherine de Medicis…
this queen who knew her way around the kitchen.

Know who else knows her way around the kitchen?

They belong on the menu for the perfect

Ever bitten into one?

Peace to you right where you are.
