Girl's Day Out
My Vancouver BFF arranged for us to do something fun together yesterday with just the two of us, which I really appreciated since life for her as a new mom is always hectic. For those of us who don't have children, it means so much to be remembered by our friends who are parents as still an important part of their lives, even though meeting up sometimes can be a challenge (and rightly so).
Macaron Candle Making Class at Soigne Atelier
We spent a few hours in the afternoon taking a private macaron candle making lesson in Soigne Atelier in the heart of East Vancouver. It was a lot of fun and I could hardly believe the results we were able to achieve in such a short amount of time (2 hours). BFF, who doesn't usually make crafts felt so proud of her work, proclaimed that we were probably "the best students ever". Once I saw the results, even I started to feel like we were macaron candle making rock stars 😛
To Burn or Display?
Although these macaron candles can be burnt (they last 1 hour), they are going straight onto my mantle with my permanent macaron tower displays. One thing that makes them stand out from my other display macarons is that they smell delicious in my chosen fragrances of Vanilla, Chocolate and Chamomile & Bergamot.
Take a look at the whole process below. Until our next outing.
