The best candy bar

On Friday, I woke up early to catch an Amtrak train ride into the City with my boyfriend. We had been dreaming about roaming around Manhattan for months, and finally the opportunity arose to make it a reality!

After walking to Central Park in hopes that the ice skating rink would not be too busy (hah!), I was distracted by passerbyers carrying Dylan’s Candy Bar bags of deliciousness. Just last week, I was watching VH1’s “Fabulous Life Of…” and saw this candy store mentioned! We decided to pass on waiting in the never-ending ice skating line, and instead walked over to 3rd avenue in search of this candy store.

When we arrived, we waited in a short line before being released into the two story (soon to be three) candy-lover’s paradise. I practically trampled over young kids just so I could get my grapefruit slices and Haribo candies I had been craving all day! After picking up a bag for myself, and some old-fashioned candies for my parents, we headed to the check out, being left with a “Have a sweet day!” from the cashier.

If you are ever strutting around the Upper East Side like a Gossip Girl and are in need of a candy fix, I recommend Dylan’s Candy Bar to help settle your sweet tooth.

Blush you!

One beauty product I started to crave after receiving a Sephora catalog before Christmas was Smashbox’s O-Glow. The claims seemed too good to be true: just rub a clear gel onto your cheeks with your fingertips, and watch your cheeks blush their natural color. Nevertheless, I was intrigued.

I was so happy to receive O-Glow as a stocking stuffer for Christmas, and promptly tried it out after all the present-opening was complete. And it worked! I found my pale self blushing a light shade of pink that stuck with me for the rest of the day. Although it is definitely different than my favorite peachy Nars blush in Orgasm, it is so easy to use and fun to watch it work its magic.

I wonder how it does it!
