FOTD 12/02/2011

A beautiful sunny day in Perth today so there was nothing better than going for some afternoon tea at one of my favourite café.  I seldom go because it is a bit of a drive from where I live but today I just had to go.  I was back in heaven tasting the delicious sweets they offer.

Choux Cafe having afternoon tea with a great friend :)
 Choux Café

93 Shenton Road

Swanbourne, Perth

The café is located in a very odd location, surrounded by houses so it’s relatively quiet but inside it was still busy, but since we went later it was had quiet down already. We had the whole back seating area to ourselves and it was so good to sit down with a glass of ice coffee and some sweets to quench our tastebuds.

Forgot the name of it but it was somethign with hazlenut

Look at all those layers!
 For those who live in Perth or ever visit and have time, this café is good and of course it is also a café that makes macaroons. They sell out super fast so early birds get all the goodies. They also provide lunch so if you’re interested check out their website.

Revvine - passionfruit mousse thing

Lychee Macaroons

Absolutely delicious Macaroon!

After some relaxing we drove down to Cottesloe beach which is only about 5 minutes from the café.  Had a nice long walk and got our bums wet by accident when the tide came up really far by surprise.  Next time we will need to remember to bring out swimsuits so we can take a nice dip.  A perfect afternoon to spend with a great friend.

 Now onto what you guys really want to see. My FOTD for the day…

I went with a coral colour on the eyes and cheek and of course some nude lips.
