My new weakness - macarons

A friend at work mentioned the Lindt Cafe at Chadstone had the best macaroons in Melbourne. I tried a couple on Friday night and was really impressed. After meeting up with Denise on Sunday afternoon at 1000 pound cafe. It was really exciting to catch up with Denise. We talked about  knitting and crochet, craft in Sydney and Melbourne. Cities I know well. I  then passed the Lindt cafe in Collins Street and popped in for more. 

Not great for my diet. I worked extra hard tonight at Gym.
