Kid in a Candy Store

 Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I love having a candy store around the corner from home. Especially a sweet tooth wonderland like Powell's. The boyfriend and I walk from our cottage in the hills to our quaint downtown, grab a bite, and head straight to the candy store. They know us well. We both are more into succulent chocolate than all the fun and crazy candy they have, but we love to play around like when we were kids. We even sneak sample tastes when the sign clearly says "No"- what rebels!

Oh, and I was "lucky" to be in the July issue of Lucky Magazine not once, but twice! I couldn't be more excited. The reason I got this pleasure was from the H&M Style Eye (see the videos here and here) and I am an alpha shopper for Lucky. Check out my articles here!

That's so amazing about your Lucky Articles!!! I'm going to check them out now. And the candy store pictures are so fun. We have a candy store around the corner too and we go all the time. I love the way they have old school candy like cigarette gum, fun dip, and dots. Yum.

There definitely aren't enought proper candy stores like that anymore. The hat looks so great.

I was at Border's this weekend and, while flipping through the latest issue, came upon your pictures. I had to show my boyfriend and told him "I know her! Well, kinda. She comments on my blog!" Haha, I was a bit starstruck :)
A well-deserved congratulations!

XX,

So cute! I am a big time candy fan! And I have that issue of Lucky next to me on the couch right now! I held it up to my boyfriend and said "This girl follows my blog!" and he was like "Really?! That's awesome!" - Anyway, you look great!!

Those candy pictures are absolutely insane! It's making me crave some gummy bears right now. And oh my goodness, congrats about being featured twice!! I saw you on the Ask the Alphas page (and I was so excited) when I got the magazine myself, but not the other feature. Can't wait to read it!

Congrats on the Lucky article! You totally deserve the recognition! I have a long bus trip on Friday night, I plan on picking up that issue for it.

I saw you in Lucky Magazine as the guest blogger a couple months ago (could have been last month, not too sure) anyways, I was so exited for you! It's so amazing to be in it twice this month. Congratulations! You deserve it, you always look amazing.
