Ladurée & Lula ~ 10




Since the demise of Borders in the UK, I have wondered for months where I would be able to find my beloved Lula magazine. Luckily, I had a fleeting visit to London at the weekend so was able to pick up a couple of copies from Harrods for myself and a friend.

It does make me wonder what I will do for the next edition but I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Lula is the blogger favourite magazine so I'm sure there will be much coverage. But as is my custom, here are some shots of my favourite pages, done a little differently this time as I compliment the magazine with some Ladurée treats I also picked up at the weekend.


Celebrating their 5th Birthday, there were several covers to choose from.




I especially loved their Lula Loves feature... I loved everything they had chosen too.











Polka dots and freckles.









Glamorous make-up and clothes.





Strawberry Shortcake... a blast from my childhood...with a recipe to try out too.










Very dreamy. Very inspirational. Very Lula.

<3 Lula. I got a copy on Saturday from Magma Books in Manchester, the Laduree treats look lovely x

RIP Borders :( It was my one stop go-to for every magazine from Seventeen to Pop.
I'm sure I've seen copies of Lula in Urban Outfitters too, and one of the music stores..HMV I think (does that still exist?) might be worth checking out!

AlicePleasance said...

Need to find my copy too!

roxybelle said...

Shopgirl said...

Oh my gosh, yes, I love Lula and have no clue where I'll get a copy now that Borders has closed down - v sad :(

daisychain said...

oh so beautiful.

Dream Sequins said...

So dreamy and beautiful- oh really,these photographs belong on the pages of Lula themselves, Ms Pink Bow.

lavelle said...

These photos should be IN lula!!

I hope you dont mind, but I have posted them on my blog, credited to you and asking all of my readers to skip on over to your delightful blog which i have only just discovered!

oh, and you should subscribe! It's £20 for two issues, but if they dont sell Lula where you live, it is definately worth it! I buy mine from Magma in Manchester

FETISH! This has to be the 5th blog I've seen these french cupcakes....to me (for whatever reason), they look like small coloured pancakes put together....also, expect a blog award from me on this Friday! Hope your day is lovely :)

Leia said...

Those macaroons look delish! I've never read Lula, despite living in London where it's supposed to be readily available I've never been able to find it! Must keep an eye out. :)

Harriet said...

Ooh Harrods! That's not so far from me, I would never have thought of looking there for lula, I will have to make a trip! It looks even more yummy next to your Laduree sweets!

Hillary said...

Yes, so dreamy! Those treats look almost too pretty to eat!

Haute World said...

Adore Lula as well.... and Laduree of course. I have yet to pick up the latest copy, but I did get a lovely box of macarons over the weekend. Such a perfect combination of yummy treats and beautiful pictures!

i wish i had a subscription to this. i've never bought a copy, i feel so guilty purchasing one bc it's like twenty bucks, but i shouldn't bc it's more like a book than a magazine :)

Oh dear, I want that magazine bad! You photographed it all so wonderfully.

Style Porn said...

Yum. I am literally drooling right now. Not sure if it's from the macaroons or the color-saturated editorials in Lula. I wonder if you can get it in the states...

June Paski said...

I love lula too, it's very inspiring magazine!

kat said...

I love seeing your edit of the pages you like and the styling you apply really compliments the magazine. It's always interesting to see which pages stand out to which bloggers.
I love the blue tone to these photos too. The packagin of the laduree is stunning too!
Thankyou again for the copy and for the link in this post you're a treasure P, speak soon kat xox

Thelma said...

What kind of cookies are those? I've seen them on Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette Movie?

PinkBow said...

wow! thanks so much for the wonderful comments!

claire eloise - harrods

thelma - yes, these laduree macarons were used in marie antoinette. & the the little flowers are chocolate

Sarah said...

I love Lula! I haven't found it yet but am heading into London at the weekend I think, I may have to detour to Harrods.

I'm going to Paris next month and Laduree is going to be my first stop, can't wait!

cat said...

Luv it!

Lets_go_find_a_Rain_beau! said...

Wow- Lula + Laduree = loads of comments. hahaha...

Too bad that I couldn't get my hands on the new issues. Friends of mine are going to LDN on Wednesday, I already asked them to get me an exemplar. Where is it at Harrods? Do they have a magazine stand?

I LOVED Laduree, but I liked the little golden one much better than the Harrods one. Oh, and my favourite one is chocolate- I'm so boring ;).

Their tea is really good as well.
