GeneralCutest Candy Ever!: Andie’s Specialty Sweets

I love buttons.
I also love candy.
 
 
Just take one little peek at these peppermint-infused cast sugar wonders and tell me you’re not in love!
 
The California-based Andie’s Specialty Sweets is coming to a webpage near you with mail order sweets that go way beyond the norm. Using quality local and organic ingredients, this mom & pop based business creates specialty confections for weddings and occasions.
 
I first fell in love with their candy buttons that come in a variety of color combos and flavors. Cast from vintage button molds these tasty little beauties are truly an innovative edible decor.
 
 
This flower and butterfly necklace is made from sugar and totally edible. What a tempting treat for a bride or a birthday girl!
 
From bolds to pastels to beloved chocolate, Andie’s Specialty Sweets is one of my favorite new sweet shops, for sure.
 
Since we’re all located around the globe, I’d like to hear about YOUR favorite sweet shops in the comments below!
 
 

FashionTrend Alert: Pretty in Polka Dots

 
Something about polka dots makes me want to grab a burger and take my girls to the drive-in in my pink ’55 Chevy convertible! Okay, so this is only a fantasy, but why not pretend? Polka dots, big and small, are becoming a much-loved fashion trend of mine this spring.  A stand-alone staple for generations, polka dots are now being paired with cute stripes or or prints for a contemporary twist! They’re always a fun addition to any outfit if you want to add a little something sweet to your ensemble.
 
 
Haute Dots: Large or bolder dots can add a little fun to a sophisticated party outfit, and smaller dots can add a playful effect to any outfit while making it a little more casual.

Enjoy putting on those precious polka dots!

BeautyAlexa Chung on the Cover of British Vogue!

Trendsetter Alexa Chung graces the cover of British Vogue for the June 2011 issue looking as beautiful as ever! With soft bangs and a tousled wave, her chic bob is picture perfect.
Alexa has been a hair icon for years and has been setting trends since she arrived on the scene! Check out some of my favorite hair looks from years past.
 
 
Similar to the Vogue cover, look this soft and feminine bob is the perfect length for Alexa’s face shape. The caramel hue makes her eyes look even more blue!
 
 
Alexa had a heads up on the ombre trend back in 2009. With dark roots and a lighter tone on the tips, Alexa was one of  the first to make this hairstyle sensation a hit!
 
 
Fixing the bangs into a chic side braid is the perfect way to get your hair out of your face while changing up the style. Keep it loose and tousled for a soft and easy look.
 
What do you think of Alexa’s styles? Which one is your favorite?
