Calling All Caramel Lovers: These Flamboyant Saffron Caramel Macaroons are a Mouthful of Awesomeness!

Vegan Macaroon Recipes

Yeah that’s right. Stretch yourself past your fears, let yourself be poured over the edge of how you previously defined yourself. Be a multi-colored peacock, limitless, unique, spread another layer of freaky craziness because feather boas wasn’t made to hang in the closet. Give shame the best angle of your booty as you wave it goodbye.

You are a piece of Art, my dear fellow wanderer. As you jump out into the possibilities of the cosmos and explore everything you can embody, anything you can express, know that others see your evolution, your endeavour, and it ignites a spark in them as well. As flames we shall unite in the great fire of the one human heart.

My favorite Flamoyant person: Frida Kahlo. The grandest peacock of them all.
