Tis the Season for a Chocolate Mystery🎁

2

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!

Just wanted to announce that Thirteen Chocolates is now available in paperback in the Amazon store.🍫


For a limited time, buy the paperback, and get the ebook for free.



Great gift idea for someone on your list, ….or for yourself. (Personally, I’m always looking for an excuse to take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle, and relax with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.)

Happy reading, everyone!

Suds or Duds? Chocolate Bath Gifts

It’s no secret, I love chocolate. Some may even say I’m obsessed by it. But, do I want to bathe in it?

All day long surrounded by the lingering scent of decadent chocolate, luring me into the bakery, the ice cream shop, the chocolate shop. Sounds simply aweful.

 Buy it by the bar.

Chocolate mint soap

Or, buy it as a liquid.

Chocolate Passion Shower Wash

OR, buy it as a solid that dissolves into a liquid.

Chocolate Bath Bombs

(The worst part about these soaps is that they look delicious. One may find it hard to resist a taste, and then quickly regret it.)

For the single woman, that was brought up with the theory that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach:

Bath and Bodyworks Temptations’ Wickedly Hot Chocolate Lotion

So, smelling like the third course of dinner will theoretically drive your date cocoa loco.

Although, I wouldn’t suggest rubbing bacon behind your ears.

And for the man, who wants to be as irresistible as Ben and Jerry:

Axe Shower Gel Dark Temptations

 

 

From the product description:

Subtle aroma of chocolate with fresh gourmet scents;

Combines hot chocolate, amber and red peppercorn notes;

Unlimited female attraction”

Although, I’m guessing that this scenario is more realistic:

So what do you think of these chocolate scented bath products? Money well spent? Or, money down the drain?

 

Please share in the comment section below.

Gift these suds?

Trash these duds?

Or, keep them for yourself?

Hot or Not? S’mores Maker

We’re continuing our Christmas idea list with an interesting appliance.

Item of the day: Nostalgia Electric S’mores Maker, sells for @$30 here on Amazon.

 

What could be better than roasting marshmallows over an open fire, er, heat source, in the comfort of your own home? No bugs. No flames. No hair full of campfire soot. 

Personally, I think this is a fun item. Perfect for an afternoon snack, a slumber party, or a family night at home. But, is it practical? Does it warrant a $30 price tag?

Part of my brain argues: “Can one really put a price tag on memories?”

But, come on. Do I really want to store one more appliance? 

Then again, it is a chocolate appliance.

As you can see, I’m on the fence on this one. What do you think? Is this a good purchase?

Let me know your thoughts below.

Wrap it?

Trash it?

or…Keep it for yourself? 

(As always, I’m not affiliated with any of these products). I’m just here for the chocolate…and the good company.
