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?

Gift these suds?

Trash these duds?

Or, keep them for yourself?

What dessert are you making for Thanksgiving?



Thanksgiving is less than a week away and I have yet to decide on what I’m making for dessert. So, I’m tempting myself with my options.

Single layer?


Lots of layers?


Ice Cream?


Or, Ice Cream Cake?


Warm and dreamy?


Cool and creamy?


Chocolate fluffed?


Chocolate stuffed?


Chocolate covered?


Chocolate Smothered?




After viewing all of these pieces of chocolate heaven, the answer is clear.

I’ll make one of everything!


(Thanksgiviving Day)

Husband: You know you have enough dessert here to feed 60 people.

Me: Well then,…I guess we’ll have leftovers.



What dessert are you making (or eating) for Thanksgiving?

This Valentine’s Day Ditch the Flowers, Buy Her Chocolate





Dear Cupid,

Those Valentine Roses are Going to Cost You…

Nope, the price of roses hasn’t risen this year. They will cost you the same astronomical inflated dollars they always have. You see, it’s not the damage to your wallet we’re talking about here, it’s the potential damage to your relationship. Those flowers you gift her on Valentine’s Day come with an underlying message. Get it wrong, and your relationship status will update to Loves Me Not.
Let me break it down.
What he thinks: This Valentine’s Day, I’m giving her flowers. I can’t go wrong here. It’s the gift that says I’m romantic.
What she thinks: Well that depends on a few things…

The Delivery
Did he send the flowers to your home?
What she thinks:  What’s the point, no one else will even see them. Is he embarrassed of me?
Did he send them to your workplace? 
What she thinks: Does he think I’m a narcissist that craves attention causing my significant other to publicly display his fondness for me? Next thing I know he’ll try to stick his tongue down my throat in front of my boss.
Did he bring the flowers to me in person after work?
What she thinks: Zilch on the thought level. Prince charming waited till the last minute, grabbing something on the way home.
Flower Type
What she thinks: How unoriginal. sigh
Not roses?
What she thinks: Cheapskate! Guess our relationship is not important enough to spring for the long stems. Gail at work got two dozen. Her boyfriend really cares about her.
The Color 
You may be asking yourself, who cares about the color? She does. Because every rose color has meaning. And maybe she doesn’t know that– but, what if she does? Or worse, what if Gail from work knows?
What he thinks: The flowers are red.
What she thinks:  Oh my gosh, he loves me. This is too soon. Or red, yawn, so ordinary. The color that says, yippee, I got red roses on Valentine’s Day— just like half of the other women in the country. Bet they were on sale, too.
Not red? 
What he thinks: The flowers are not red.
What she thinks:  He doesn’t love me. He’s insecure with our relationship status and afraid of commitment. I mean there are red roses everywhere, and he went out of his way to pick a different color.
What he thinks: The flowers are yellow.
What she thinks:  Oh, so he wants to play it this way. The dreaded, he just wants to be friends. Great friends. Gag. And on Valentine’s Day, nonetheless. Coward.
What he thinks: The flowers are some light orangey color. Whatever.
What she thinks:  He thinks I’m sweet. (Yeah, so is my grandma.)
What he thinks: The flowers are pink.
What her best friend thinks: Oh, you think she’s so beautiful, do you? So you finally admit it, you just like her for her looks. You mine as well give her a pork chop with a ribbon tied around it, if you really want her to feel like a piece of meat.
What he thinks: Why did she just smack me?
What she thinks: Orange relays a message of passion and desire.  So depending on your relationship status, the smack on the face, or the bum, was well deserved. 
What he thinks: These flowers are pink. Or orange.
What she thinks:  I fascinate you? What, am I a clown at the circus?
What he thinks: Cool. I’ve never seen blue roses before.
What she thinks:  He thinks I’m fake. Just like these fake flowers.

What he thinks: The flowers are white.
What she thinks: I will need to consult my friends on this one.
What your best friend thinks: Loverboy thinks you’re loyal. You know, like a faithful dog.
What your mom thinks:  Innocent? Yeah right. He’s a living and breathing man, gushing with testosterone. I’d gather to say his innocence isn’t his strongest trait. Dump the pervert.
What Gail from work thinks:  Ouch. Sympathy. (Do you really want to go there?)
Assorted Colors 
What he thinks:  I’m indecisive.
What she thinks: He’s indecisive. Furthermore, he lacks a backbone, and knows nothing about me. If he can’t even commit to a color, he surely cannot commit to us. Relationship status: game over.
No matter the delivery, the style, or the color, one thing is for certain. The life span of flowers is short. Every day she looks at them they will get a bit weaker, lose a little zest, and eventually shrivel up and die. A reminder of your relationship’s impending doom.
So, what should you buy her for Valentine’s Day?

Because not getting her chocolate sends the biggest message of all:  
I think you are a profoundly obese bloated baboon who eats bonbons while watching reality shows all day. You don’t want her to think she’s a profoundly obese bloated baboon who eats bonbons all day while watching reality shows all day, right?
So spring for the chocolates…Just be sure to buy the right ones.

Confessions of a Chocoholic- at Work


If you’re anything like me, eating healthy can be a challenge. In this world, it seems like there are tasty morsels around every corner. 

Tempting us. 

Taunting us. 

And ready to lure us in.

You can’t turn on the television, drive down the road, read a magazine, or even go to work, without the temptation of delicious, not-so-nutritious foods, threatening your diet.    

And when chocolate is involved, all bets are off. 

But, not today. Today I’ve got things under control. I’m like a junk food ninja. Bring on the snacks, the baked goods, and those chocolate covered goodies.

Today is the day


Today, I’m going to eat healthier.



Twenty minutes into work, and all I’ve had is coffee and a piece of chewing gum. I’m unstoppable.



Unstoppable…Until I leave my desk. Traps everywhere.


Doughnuts in the break room. Maybe just one…



Minor set back.  I got this.



Secretary’s desk houses jars of candy. I’ll take one for the team.



Strategically placed vending machine en route to restrooms. 

Baited, hooked…and sunk.



A co-worker is celebrating with birthday cake.  Maybe I’ll have just a thin slice.



The office manager baked muffins. I don’t want to hurt her feelings.



The boss is selling cookies for his daughter. I need to be supportive.



Retirement Party.  Bring on the cake.



I’ve already blown today. I should probably go clean up the doughnuts in the break room.



Tomorrow. Tomorrow I will eat healthier.
