While in Wicker Park this morning I got to check out the Alliance Bakery and taste their famous macarons. Wow. I tried the Raspberry and Rose macaron and it was divine. I will definitely be going back soon and getting a box. Click here to check out all of their sweet offerings.
There is a pretty incredible exhibit at the MoMA of his work, including films, interviews, original sketches and artwork. I would love to go to this and if you are in NY before April 26th, you should go see it too! Click here to check out the exhibit.

I just read a fantastic article from Vanity Fair about the late, great John Hughes. He was an incredibly private person and this article does a great job detailing his life and work as the man who created the "Brat Pack" and made so many brilliant movies. Click here to read it.

I just saw that Alexander McQueen has died. McQueen was only 40 and they have not yet revealed the cause of death. What a tragedy. He has created so many beautiful and legendary pieces over the years. One of my favorites is pictured above-McQueen with Sarah Jessica Parker, both in his designs. He will be missed.

Finally got to see (500) Days of Summer. It was super cute. Just adorable. You really can't go wrong with Zooey Deschanel. She is so pretty and charismatic. I'm also glad that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is back around, I haven't seen him in anything for a while. Thank goodness his voice has deepened since 10 Things I Hate About You! It was very original and quirky and there is a great soundtrack. Regina Spektor, hello? I love the clothing and sets and Gordon-Levitt does a great karaoke rendition of the Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man." Good stuff. Go rent it!
