Cute Candy

Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC
I have an infamous sweet tooth (and now a whiter sweet tooth thanks to the pain of Zoom! whitening).  Chocolate is my biggest vice and candy of any kind follows closely behind.  So when I was watching t.v. the other day and an ad for Personalized M&M's came on, all I could think about was Christmas gifts, Anniversary Gifts, Birthday Gifts! They are so cute- you choose the colours you want and you can include up to 2 images and 2 personalized messages.  And as I am on a tight budget this year- dear friends and family please act surprised if you receive these cute chocolate pieces as a present from me!

While I am on the topic of candy- my favourite candy girl-Dylan Lauren (daughter of fashion icon Ralph Lauren and owner of Dylan's Candy Bar) has written a book entitled "Dylan's Candy Bar: Unwrap your Sweet Life"- journalling her love for the sweeter things in life; entertaining and even a little fashion thrown in the mix (she is Ralph's daughter so what do you expect?)  I think that this book will be added to my X-Mas Wish List which ironically enough consists entirely of reading materials!

  1. Hey! Just discovered your blog...very cute! Looking forward to following

  2. I love candy so much and the Dylan's Candy Bar is one of my favourite places to go in NYC! I'll be reading her book for sure!


  3. I have been at Dylan's Candy Bar in New York; the $125 t-shirt kinda turned me off, showed what happens when brand name fixation becomes out of control.

  4. oh my gosh, & you knew about this place way before they did it as a fashion challenge on project runway!


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
