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.

  4. 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!

  8. 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

  65. 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

  68. 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!

  70. 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.
