secrets, secrets are no fun...

...unless you tell everyone.

I (Alex) don't have the time right now (or space really) to tell you about my obsession with mary-kate and ashley and their AMAZING style! But don't worry I will blog about them again soon! Who doesn't love mka?

What do you think about their style? Is is something you like to admire from afar? Or would you raid their closets like there's no tomorrow?

macaroons and big news

Lately I (Alex) have been craving macaroons (a delicious French desert). Macaroons are anything you could possible want in a tasty treat: crispy cookie on the outside, soft cake and frosting/jelly filling on the inside. What more could you ask for?
If you would like to make macaroons here is the recipe from Martha Stewart.

Ale and I have been talking about baking macaroons for quite some time now, but we've never gotten around to it. I guess once you've tried macaroons from Ladurée (a bakery based in Paris) you figure nothing will ever taste as good.

On another note, we have some big news. We've been working on some new designs for A(Squared) + M and can't wait to show them to you! We will also be opening a shop on Etsy very, very soon. So you will be able to purchase our t-shirts online!

Here is one of our new designs:

Ken: Barbie's Husband and Fashion Model?

So, basically the new issue of Esquire has the best editorial...ever. It's actually the coolest, yet most humorous one I've ever seen. The Esquire styling team dressed the tiny model in the Fall Burberry Prorsum, Paul Smith, Gucci, and Prada collections. Though this photoshoot is incredibly adorable, Ken was apparently quite the diva on set refusing to do what was asked of him. I'm serious. Esquire actually mentioned his attitude in the article accompanying these photographs. This is probably the last time Matthew Donaldson (the photographer) will ever hire a plastic model.

Just a small footnote: Isn't the resemblance between Ken and Garret Neff uncanny? I mean, just compare the first picture of Ken to this one of Garret! They're even wearing similar jackets!
