    Guest Post by Lauren of Aspiring Kennedy

    I’m away visiting my BFF4L (ha. i’m twelve 🙂
    in beautiful Pensacola Beach, FL
    While I’m headed out, you guys get a big treat!
    The incredibly inspiring Lauren of Aspiring Kennedy is here today.  Lucky y’all (:
    Hi, friends.

    I’m Lauren,
     the writer behind Aspiring Kennedy.

    As you may or may not know,
    the land where
    white tea, men in great suits, & Kate Moss 
    reign supreme.

    Over the last few months,
    I’ve keep hearing Ms. Moss’ famous quote
    get passed around in social scenes…
    and I’m not sure how I feel about it.

    If you haven’t heard it, 
    Kate famously dropped the line:
    “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”

    I see the logic, 
    but if you will excuse me, Kate…
    I’m not you’ve tasted some of the my favorite things.

    Allow me to introduce you to…

    Five Foods Worth Gaining Ten

    1. Pie & Mash

    Chicken, leek, & pancetta pie
    over Irish mash {potatoes with cheese & onions}
    drowned in gravy.

    My personal favorite pie is 
    next to Liberty of London

    2. Street Food

    The smell of onions cooking on a grill
    draws me in like a magnet every single time.

    …and so do tarts

    …oh, and pretty fruit.

    3. Southern Desserts

    What is summer until you have some
    fried pies & strawberry shortcake?

    4. Croque Madame

    Kate must have been too busy 
    walking the runway at fashion week
    to sit down at a cafe for one of these gems.

    I dont eat ham, cheese, or runny eggs…
    but this creation breaks every rule.

    Don’t forget the mustard. 
    Please, do not forget the mustard.

    5. Laduree 

    Their macarons are incredible…
    but the Isaphan tart will make you cry.

    Rose macaron with raspberries and cream. 
    It’s inexplicable,
    but trust me, Kate…
    it’ll be worth trading in those size 0 skinny jeans.
