(review and giveaway) Epiphany Chocolates

Last week, we got the best kind of mail.  As soon as the mailman left, we had an impromptu chocolate tasting party.  Words can't describe, but we will try. Layers of Flavor.  Unique and delicious.  

We were sent Epiphany Chocolate's new line for Autumn. Imagine handmade soft center nudges enrobed in chocolate with unique, surprising flavors in a signature keepsake box.
Let me introduce you to our new best friend:

The line includes three kinds of your favorite fall flavors:

Sweet Pie of Mine, Slice of Heaven, and Falling for You.

Bliss in a bite.

It's more than just chocolate...  each bite we tasted had multiple layers of flavor.  If you could package colorful leaves, crisp fall air, cold hands wrapped around a steaming mug of apple cider, tiny hands picking their favorite pumpkin, and your first opportunity to wear your favorite boots and scarf in a single bite, these chocolates more than fit the bill.  You can indulge yourself, or spoil a friend.  And with names like these, they are guaranteed to please.

We'll let these speak for themselves:

Sweet Pie of Mine
Maple Pecan Sweet Potato Pie Fudge
Forget the fork and prepare to fall in love with the most surprising pie ever. Just like your mama used to make, this maple pecan milk fudge has a hint of sweet potato while candied pecans, maple and nutmeg take this nugget up a notch. All of your favorite fall flavors bundled into one…you may just keep this sweetie pie all to yourself.

Slice of Heaven
Apple Cinnamon Pie Fudge
Avert the culinary crisis and serve a slice of apple cinnamon pie covered in milk chocolate with shortbread crumbs and a pinch of cinnamon on top. No apron necessary and absolutely grandma-approved.

Falling for You
Pumpkin Pie Fudge
Leave your scarf at home and let this charming fall favorite melt your heart. This combination of creamy pumpkin fudge wrapped in milk chocolate and heavenly pecan nougats is one toasty love affair that’ll last all year long.

Now for the Sweet part...

Citta Viva Beach Towel Review (my fav)

Ok...speaking of beach towels...can I just tell you that I have a favorite of my own?  I rendered my yellow towel for Scarlet's use, so I was going to have to find me a new one, and let me just tell you, I found the most perfect towel ever!  We spend a lot of summer days at the at least 4 days a week, if not more, and when I say 'days at the beach' I mean alllll 10-5, so I didn't want just some scrappy old towel.  I needed a goody:  here it is: Velour on one side, classic terry on the other. Thick, over-sized, warm and above all's so pretty!
 My towel had it's maiden voyage last weekend.  Around these parts, it's breezy almost every day.  The sun is out, but there's always a little bit of a wind.  So, when the sun hid behind a cloud, or the wind got a little bit to aggressive for my Arizona blood, I laid this over my lap, and was perfect!  And when the sun was shining in all it's glory, the velour was the best seat in the house.  
I just had to share...It's called the Citta Viva Beach Towel go get one (there are 3 other designs, mine is the 'Diaz')
Citta Design, the creator of my new towel is based in New Zealand and is a home ware and accessories design house.  They are just launching their new summer line to the US this month, so go check them out!
Happy Summer!

(Review) Fresh Produce Tango Skirt

I had the opportunity to choose another piece from Fresh Produce from their new summer collection.  It was a treat for me to sit and peruse their fun catalogue and see what gems I could find, and pick the 1 thing that I'd like to try out.  
In all honesty, most of the clothing that they have in their catalogue seems to be a little old for me...but each time that I've had the opportunity to try one of their items {click here for my last experience} I'm always so impressed with their clothing, and honestly feel like it's perfect for me!  I've gotten tons of compliments on the items that I have from Fresh Produce!
I dropped my son off at school just before I was supposed to meet Jen to take the pictures for this post...and three mom's complimented me on my outfit in the 10 minutes we were standing in the school yard waiting for the bell to ring...awesome!
Anyways, my choice from their darling summer line was this Tango Skirt in cool breeze.  
 here's what I love about the Tango Skirt:
-SUPER comfortable...seriously.  The material is light, soft, and stretchy, it was perfect for the toasty end of spring day.
-the asymmetrical hemline is my favorite.  I don't have any other skirts like this, and I felt so fun in this skirt!
-And, while summer is totally here at the beach, I know it'll be the perfect skirt to throw over my suit and take all the troops down to the beach.
I seriously picked the best skirt in the whole catalogue!
Check out some of Fresh Produce's other popular summer options:
...AND, I know that we have some readers that are not here in the United States...Fresh Produce now ships to over 200 countries, so women outside the US can enjoy the colorful styles, too.
