L.A. in the bay Turns ONE! {& A Giveaway!} CLOSED

Today, L.A. in the bay turns ONE! 

image via here / graphic by me

Can't believe I've been blogging for ONE year. Boy does time fly.
 This past year has been such a crazy awesome, adventurous, exciting, {yet hectic!} journey, and I wouldn't change it for anything. I have met so many amazing people through the blogging world, ones that are now some of my closest friends!, and have been blessed with so many opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise had. A year ago, I never would have thought that I would contribute to Made By Girl, be featured in LA Weekly, meet the editors of Lucky Magazine, become an intern for Glitter Guide, and now be traveling to NY for Fashion Week. I am so incredibly grateful for all the blessings I have been given, but most of all grateful for all of YOU. Without my readers, where would I be? You all encourage me and inspire me on a daily, and I wouldn't be where I am without all of you. So THANK YOU. Truly. From the bottom of my heart. 
And because you all are so darn amazing, I want this week to be all about saying THANKS to you. So through the entire week, there will be some super awesome sauce giveaways {if I do say so myself!} lined up for you.

With that being said, to celebrate L.A. in the bay turning ONE in true Lauren fashion, today's giveaway will be none other than those yummy macarons you see above! Le Bonbon Bakery in LA is so kindly giving away a dozen delectable macarons in an assortment of flavors, to one lucky reader!
{I just got a batch of pistachio macarons for my birthday - and oh my, let me tell you. They are mouth-watering!}

  13. Would you believe I've never had a macaron? Insane, I know. So, I'm a little lost in the flavor department, but the light green pistachio ones do look pretty tasty!

    Happy one year!! :)

  50. first of all - congratulations on your one year!! second - my mouth is literally WATERING! I love macarons - I think I have commented this before on your blog but one of the things I miss the most about SJ is cocola and their wonderful macarons! North Carolina seems to be lacking in the french bakery department :( I would definitely love to try the pistachio! That is one of my favorite flavors!

  66. I follow you via GFC!! (I'm Heather @ Glitter and Gloss) um, and now I'm completely craving a macaron!! I'm in the Bay Area too (but across the bay from you, I think...) and can't find anyone that sells them around here. Wah! So, I visited the shop and literally can't choose just one I'd want to try, so I narrowed it down to two - the pistachio and tiffany blue coconut, but everything looks amazing!

    Thanks for the chance!!
