Trollbeads knows this and for Valentines Day this year, they have created a limited edition glass bead with four copper hearts tucked inside the glass. This Trollbead wins our vote for the best Valentine bead ever!
See it for yourself, at $43, it is a great bead to have in your collection. Our favorite bracelet, so far, combines 'Be My Valentine' with the pink pearls, denim prism, red tiger eye and pink diamond. Many people are pairing it with the 'Aurora' series beads which complements nicely.
Creating your own, personalized art jewelry from the selection of so many beautiful, hand crafted artisan beads is the best part of Trollbeads! We are excited that Trollbeads is offering more of the small batch, limited edition beads, because that is part of what makes collecting so fun!
Maybe copper is the metal of love, because we're loving "Be My Valentine"!
Being in Paris this Spring inspired me to once again try my hand at Macarons. Though my macarons are but crumbs on the floor compared to Pierre Herme's, I thought they were pretty good for being 'American made'!
Here's the recipe I used to make the macarons served at Coco and Duckie yesterday! My favorite thing about these little bites of decadence is how simple it is to create virtually any flavor. I've made Matcha Green Tea Macarons, Salted Caramel Macarons, Fuji Apple Macarons, to name a few! Get creative and come up with your own flavor combos and let me know how they turn out! :) Happy baking!!!
Macarons will be served again soon at Coco and Duckie so put your favorite flavors in the comment section below!
Kitchen Aid with a whisk attachment or some serious commitment to hand whisking.
Convection Oven (It's possible to use a regular oven...your baking temp will just need to be a bit lower)
One of the most romantic days of the year is almost upon us! Sometimes finding the perfect gift for that special someone can prove challenging, especially for those of the male persuasion. It's just something about shopping that sometimes doesn't click! All of us girls at Coco and Duckie are more than happy to help your guys shop, just mention casually that we are open till 6 every day ;)
We Here are a few of our favorite things this month!
Till next time!

No really, it is! Madeline @ Coco and Duckie recently dip dyed her hair turquoise! She has us all wanting perfectly pastel ends!
It is actually very easy to do! Madeline dip dyed my hair two weeks ago and I'm in love with my new do! Unfortuantly I don't have any pics of my actual hair but I have found some super fun images that represent the essence of our dip dye style!
We used Manic Panic hair products when we dip dyed our hair. Manic Panic's bleach and color were really gentle on my hair, so there was no dryness after bleaching! The entire process only took about 2 hours to bleach and color.
Everybody's doing it.....
Well it's been lovely, till next time!
