Sweet-e-licious!

Are you surrendered by SWEETS?
Few days back I was craving for Macarons. After watching 'Gossip Girl' and some YouTube Gurus talking about it and having it, I wanted to try them out badly. I thought and wished for it and it was granted, when I came to know about Macarons from a friend on facebook. Thanks to her for sharing the picture on her wall :D 
It was a picture and the link a Cafe in Islamabad named " MOCCA COFFEE ". I had to check the page and when I saw the album filled with the pictures of mouth watering deserts,food and MACARONS,
I was drooling and I wanted them even more badly. You guys in Islamabad are lucky! You should check out their page and the album, but only when your stomach is full *advice*, if you are not from Islamabad *wink wink* 
I was SO excited to see these little colorful babies! And I had to get them, but... before I could buy them, Mocca Coffee was kind enough to send me a bunch of yummiest Macarons. Yes, they ship country wide. And you get them the next day they are shipped.
The Blue and Yellow Macarons are the ones I ate and it is this way to show the inside of the Macaron :)
Just look at them, aren't they tempting and mouth-watering?
They have them in 6 different yummy flavors, which are :
1. Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle.
2. Lemony Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
3. Caramelised Peanut & Sea Salt.
4. Blackcurrant with French Vanilla.
5. Blueberry & Mohito Mint.
6. Pistachio with Amaretto.


If I have to pick one favorite*which is quite hard* that would be Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle. I am a sucker for chocolate flavors, so it has to be in my favorite list. Else Pistachio with Amaretto is my second favorite (I love pistachios) and then Caramelised Peanut  & Sea Salt. And the rest are on equal level and in my favorite list too :D
They came all packed up nicely in a box, which was in another box and wrapped in a cardboard. But some how it was little bit crushed * thanks to courier guys * , but seriously it doesn't matters to me. They all were in full piece, just a little crumbs came out.

The Macarons have soft creamy filling inside, which tastes YUM! You can taste every little flavor which is in it. They were as fresh as you will get them at Mocca Coffee. When the courier guy arrived, I could smell the smell of the Macarons outside the package and I couldn't wait to open the box and eat them. They are quite rich, you can not eat the whole at once. But if you are SWEET lover, you can.
All in all, the wait and wish for Macarons was worth it! I really enjoyed eating them. And I will order some in future too. 
Highly recommended! Do try them out. You can find "Mocca Coffee" on Facebook and email them and let them know what flavors you would like to have.


I hope you enjoyed reading the post. If you have tried Macarons, do share your views.
Will you order some for yourself? :)

  3. I know =) but i am of the view point that the thing you get as a gift/courtesy is more precious than the things you buy yourself :)

  4. I am from Isb and these Macarons are yummy but look disgusting. They are not supposed to look like this. Macaron or macaroon making is an art and some people, me included :) feel very touchy when it comes to badly made stuff which is then marketed as authentic French recipe only cuz ppl in Pak don't know much about how macaroons are supposed to look or taste like.These are discolored and haven't developed their 'feet' as its called in macaron lingo :).I hope you don't think of my comment as rude, it's just that there are some things I'm passionate about, macaroons being on of them if you read my latest post you will know hehe! :D

  5. You are right! But this happened because of the courier people. Even Mocca Coffee people were disappointed how they showed up after being sent. They said themselves that they are not the way they are looking. Thanks to delivery guys! :)

  9. Whoa! Mocca Coffee here - we're glad you enjoyed the 'earthly remains' of our Macarons, but we're going to have a serious word with our Courier...

    @Pandora: We totally agree with you! Macaron making is indeed an art - one we've spent a very long time learning and developing. But try telling OCS that... :/

    If you are in ISB, drop by our outlet in Kohsar Market - you'll find perfectly coloured Macarons with 'feet' and without crackled 'domes' - just like these http://on.fb.me/nHs8Xl

    @ Rabeeyah: We're developing new shipping packaging and will be sending a new box - we just can't live with the above depicted delivery massacre! Macarons are incredibly delicate and fragile but we're not ready to give up on sending them out just yet. You'll be hearing from us :)

  17. I went to Mocca Coffee today with a friend and had this chocolate Hazelnut Macaron and it tasted sooooooooooooooo good!!!! but it was too small :((

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yayie good to know that you went and liked the Macarons, Ambreen. I know they are small, but that's the actual size of them :) They are quite rich :) I'm glad you liked it.

  19. @Rabeeyah, this is how our Macarons look delivered by Mocca Coffee staff in ISB today: http://facebook.com/moccacoffee

    You can imagine why we're really >:( with OCS! Hope the next box looks better... :)

    @GABY: Macarons are often called Macaroons in North America - they are huge in Europe and now coming up in the States. It's the next big thing after Cupcakes, only much more delicate, exquisite and much, much more demanding to prepare authentically... You'll find many odd attempts :)

    @Ambreen: Glad you enjoyed it! Mocca's Macarons are actually on the larger side - just over 2 inches. But we agree - a Macaron is always 'too small' particularly the Chocolate-Hazelnut Truffle Macaron! ;)

  20. Thanks Adam! I saw Jiah's picture :D She is my friend and the one who introduced me to Mocca Coffee. I was really happy to see what she received. I am sure delivery will get better and soon you will be delivering nation wide :D I am still happy with what I received and ate :D

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!


Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, I am going to review the most  requested product after my 2nd Haul post :) Yes, it is Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax.


I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me. But, when I saw this, I picked up this and read about it. I thought of giving it a try. This one is for Dry or Permed Hair. And it is in flavor HONEY. 

It says : Enjoy a salon treatment for your hair at home!
