New ipad case and another batch of macarons

I received a new ipad case a couple of months ago courtesy of caseable (Thanks, caseable!).  I was able to fully customize the case using my own photos.  Their website is easy to use, they use recycled materials for all of their cases, and the final product is great!  They offer customized cases for all sorts of devices (ipads, iphone, e-readers, etc.).  

I decided to use a couple of my favorite photos from our Paris honeymoon for the case. Ben used to work in the design/printing industry and he was very skeptical about how the case would turn out (just because printing photos on items like this usually look really weird or "off").  Once I received it,  we were both very pleasantly surprised.   The quality is fantastic and I love the way it looks.  I've used it for a couple of months now, and I am very happy with it.  I love that there is a pocket on the inside and I appreciated being able to choose the color of the spine.  I definitely recommend caseable and I have my eye on a new iphone case:)  My only complaint is that I wish you could choose a different color for the inside.  I feel like white will get dirty easily.     



 Since my case has macarons all over it, I thought this would be a good time to show off my latest batch of macarons.  I had the day off for the 4th and I decided to do some baking.  I must have been in the mood for lemons because I made lemon cupcakes and lemon macarons.  I think this was my best batch yet.  Maybe I am finally getting it!
