Festive Chocolate-Dipped Pretzels and Holiday Treat Boxes
The other day I mentioned to you guys that I found ribbon candy for $2.50 at a store called Big Lots. I was so excited! I hadn’t see ribbon candy in like FOREVER!
Anyway, I sent some to my mom along with some snowball cookies via UPS the other day but my sweets variety was not as cute as the one above! Now I’m very inspired to replicate this box set and re-send another box of goodies!
All that’s needed is to buy the candy coins, mini candy canes, ribbon candy and the rest you can make yourself! (meringue cookies, the two chocolate pretzels)

Soooo I’m redecorating my apartment with a beach theme and asked for some feedback from you guys……….. and of course I got this great submission from one of my awesome followers, ebonywolf!
You guys have to see the video on this link…..
I’ve talked a little bit about my kitchen/home redecorating here….
Without sounding redundant, I live by the beach and I’m decorating the apartment with a beach/ocean theme and am looking for more inspiration.
Right now my kitchenaid is aqua green, my plate mats are bamboo aqua, an espresso coffee maker is aqua, 2 serving plates one is fish shaped the other is shell shaped, 2 side tables are retro blue, on the tables I have vases filled with sea shells I collected from the beach, wicker furniture is white with orange, my bathroom is decorated in sea shells, bathroom has 3 sea shell mirrors, has hand made beach soaps (with sea shells inside them etc)
This link has a similar theme as me except I have an apartment and I’m not buying a fridge, oven, microwave etc
a) she has wicker furniture like I do
b) she has the fridge I want (retro 1950s aqua)
c) same color scheme as I do (retro blue, aqua)
d) kind of the same concept for living room decor (last picture) but I don’t want nautical decorations :/
e) she hast two kitchens…. a “wet” kitchen and a “dry” lol I guess one is for eating the other is for cooking? :s
f) The aqua laminated kitchen walls are awesome!
g) she has a cute guest bathroom that oddly enough is not beach themed…. lol Usually people’s bathrooms are beach themed but she did it the opposite way. Entire house is beach themed but not the bathroom…
h) she has a beach painted on her living room wall :O
What I don’t like:
her oven, and other appliances don’t match her retro aqua fridge. I would have done this instead.
I’m rambling……. that’s all :) xx
