Over the weekend I found true happiness at the Museum of Ice Cream, an interactive pop up experience based on the history and sweetness of Ice Cream. Like the Museum of Feelings it will only be in existence for a limited time and it’s totally worth a trip (though it might be sold out now).
Throughout my blissful visit, I ate ice cream (of course), looked at ice cream-inspired art and learned fun facts about the history of everyone’s favorite frozen treat. The highlight was swimming in a pool full of sprinkles. For my sprinkle swimwear I wore my LOFT Flecked Side Shirred Dress. I hope they come out with a Museum of Cupcakes next because that would make my life!
With their bright colors and fancy packaging, macarons by far one of the most stylish sweets. So it’s no wonder they’re at almost every fashion event alongside cupcakes and champagne. When I came across the famous Ladurée luxury French bakery on West Broadway, I was hypnotized by the beautiful sweets in the window. Judging from this display, these double-decker macarons that sell at a rate of 15,000 a day, are enough to make any girl feel like they are in the company of Marie Antoinette or Blair Waldorf.
My latest obsession has nothing to do with couture. Like millions of addicts around the world, I’ve developed quite a sweet tooth for Candy Crush Saga. I love all the pretty candies and the challenge each level brings. If you haven’t played yet, just be aware that this game is addictive enough to make you a permanent resident of the Betty Ford Center. So play wisely. Currently, I’ve been stuck on level 65 for over a month and it’s driving me insane.
In spite of it all, Candy Crush certainly has a way of teaching you patience. Not only do some levels take forever to pass, but once your five lives are up, you must wait a specified amount of time before you can play again or ask your Facebook friends to send you a life. I have tons of friends on Facebook that I haven’t spoken to in years, but they never fail to send me lives on Candy Crush. If you can’t wait, you can always pay for more lives, but I’m not really into doing that. I’d rather wait and use my time in between Candy Crush sessions to do something productive. Since I now have nothing, but candy on my mind, I’ve been spending my Candy Crush downtime searching for the cutest candy-inspired accessories. I hope you enjoy my sweet picks and beat that level you’re stuck on soon!
