Les Cinq Amandes: For Your Valentine

Good afternoon everyone! Even though its still January, February 14th is creeping up on us and will be here extremely soon! For those of you with a special someone you better start thinking about Valentines day gifts. Luckily for you, Les Cinq Amandes has it all covered.

Les Cinq Amandes, meaning The 5 Almonds, is a company which makes beautiful, elegant, and delicious confections (including chocolate, yum!). I had the pleasure to try out some of their products a few weeks ago and I absolutely loved them! Check out the gorgeously wrapped and put together sweets I received in the mail:

Order yours here:

My favorites were definitely the "custom baguette" which are the colorful chocolates; not only were they delicious, but you get to choose your own colors, so of course I chose light pink, turquoise blue, and lavender. I also especially enjoyed the caramel, it was perfect! 

It was also really cool that they included a little piece of paper inside the box that told you all about the company, especially because it explained the name, "Les Cinq Amandes". Since you can't read it in the picture, here's what it says, "It started as a simple wish -- actually 5 of them. In the mid 17th century, Europeans celebrating weddings would offer their guests 5 confectionery almonds symbolizing wishes for health, happiness, wealth, longevity and fertility. Les Cinq Amandes, Home of Artisanal Dragees & Confectionary is proud to continue this tradition, not only by offering the finest and most innovative hand-made dragees but also by renewing the set of 5 wishes to Health, Happiness, Longevity, Peace, and of course Love!... ENJOY!"  

So by sending this gift to a loved one for Valentine's day not only are you sending delicious candy, but wishes of health, happiness, longevity, peace, and love!

Now I know you're thinking, "how could this get any better!?" well it can :) All my wonderful readers (you guys!) get a 10% discount on whatever you buy by just entering the code "HOLIDAY10" at checkout!

Its Cold Outside! How To Stay Warm and Stylish

Good morning everyone! I hope you've all been finding some way to stay warm. Here in New York City it is absolutely freezing; right now its almost below 0 degrees! I put together an outfit that I think will keep you warm when its so cold. I included a cute sweater and jeans, texting gloves (of course), a scarf, some warm boots, a nice jacket, and very pretty jewelry.
Its cold outside!
