I want Candy!

Fall isn't the only time I crave candy corn - it's a junkfood item that I eat year round!  With the craving going strong (because there's none in the house!) - I found some adorable items on Etsy for all of the candy corn lovers out there.

Sublime Dragonfly's Yummy Scented Soaps

Banana Coconut, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Snickerdoodle.  This isn't a dessert buffet - it's an amazing assortment of soaps by The Sublime Dragonfly

I received a beautiful assortment of samples to try.  Carrot Cake was by far my favorite, with Almond Java in a close second place.  It was so hard to control my cravings for sweets after smelling these amazing soaps!

She even does party favors - bridal showers are the most popular with her cupcake soaps (soon to be seen in her Etsy shop!) which come in TONS of scents!  They look so real - I had to remember they were soap. 

Her Etsy shop is currently getting updated with new soaps and scrubs - definitely grab some while the scents are available.  You will not be sorry!

Rosie O'Donnell has an Etsy Shop!

A friend of mine told me this morning that she stumbled upon an Etsy shop that i just HAD to see.  She opens up her laptop - and looky there - Rosie O'Donnell!  I was so excited!

All proceeds from her shop go directly to her "Rosies Broadway Kids" organization which is "dedicated to enriching the lives of children through the arts".

Check out her Munny dolls...so cool!

Valentines Day Shopping: Part One

Since the big day is approaching, lets do some searching of cool, interesting gift ideas.

The first thing I came across that interested me was by a shop on Etsy called Kindly Spoken

Although the next item isn't edible - it's just too cute to not share with you!  A perfect gift for someone like me - who LOVES Pop Tarts!

And for the love of Johnny Depp...the gift that keeps him near your heart....
