Last weekend I made my very first candy buffet! Shocking right? I’ve dreamed of many but never before created. I figured my sister’s baby shower was a great place to start because babies are just SO sweet. Especially this little one. The shower was cohosted by some of Ali’s best friends and it was just perfect. More photos to come from the shower but while I work on those, here are a few shots of the candy bar set up.

I was a little overwhelmed with trying to visualize how it would all come together but I think it turned out well for my first go at it. I bought the candy at Jack’s wholesale in downtown LA. The place is amazing- bulk candy from floor to ceiling. Aka my dream. The prices were very reasonable compared to online and storefront candy shops. Then I just put them in glass containers and used ribbons and stickers to spruce things up a little. So fun!

My only regret? Well if you read this then you realize that I didn’t eat any of the candy! Hello, torture. But don’t feel bad for me yet- I have a TON of leftovers, and 11 other months to eat it :)

love and candy,




Proof that good things can come in small packages!

Heck yes. Haribo gummy bears are one of my all time fave candies. The texture, the flavor, the everything is perfect! Now, I must admit  that I am not usually into “fun size” candy which is not nearly as fun as king size candy. However, I do enjoy the small packaging and these little guys were just too adorable to pass up. I found them at Target and they are called “Lunch Box” Haribo.  A perfect little treat to drop into a brown bag lunch! Or to just eat randomly… like I am currently doing.


Aren’t they adorable? I wish I had a normal size Haribo bear to compare the size, but for now a silly photo shoot will have to do.

Sometimes you stumble upon things and feel like they are created just for you. You know, like friends, your soulmate, the perfect purse, and for me- Candy Japan! Steve found this subscription site that sends Japanese candy out each month and I was so excited to give it a try.

The Japanese sure know how to keep candy fun, and who doesn’t love getting surprise packages in the mail? If you have any hard to shop for candy lovers in your life, this could also be a great gift idea. A subscription will run you $23.95 per month. And the smiles it will bring? Priceless :)

Thanks Candy Japan!
