2016 : Macarons and Must Haves Year in Review & Welcome to 300!

hey all!

i cannot believe that 2016 is almost over. even though we only have two days left, it feels like we should have much longer left in the year i mean we are 364/366 (because we had leap year this year) so i don’t really know how its almost over. i mean time flies,
