New Years Eve Party Snack (Wheels of Fortune)

Well hello there Sunshine! 🙂

So today I have decided to post something “non chocolate” related to spice things up a bit. As New Years Eve is coming up and the end of 2012 is upon us. Here is a very simple and impressive recipe for your new years eve guests! I like to call them “Wheels of Fortune”. This receipe was shared with me by my sister in Italy and I love how easy it is to make! In Italy we call these ” i Rotolli” , so lets bring some fortune into 2013 and work some magic into the new beginning.

You will need:

Bread, Philadelphia and Salmon

Chocolate perfumes Episode 1

There are so many chocolate infused perfumes out there, I thought I’d break them down into episodes so as not to overwhelm those precious nostrils of yours….

If you have tried the all too familiar sweet chocolate smell of Angel, Aquolina Chocolovers or Tommy Hilfiger milk chocolate scented body cream and feel sick to the stomach with the over the top sweet smells, then let me entice you to a more mature range of chocolate perfumes fused with patchouli, iris and other exotic scents, sure to leave you smelling like the true goddess you were born to be, rather than a cheap chocolate wrapper.

Mazzolari- Lei. A sexy perfume for the sexy goddess in you! An incredible mood booster just like rolling cocoa powder!

Mazzolari Lei

Parfumerie Generale Musc Maori  is a blend of coffee flowers, musk and amber. It uses bitter, unsweetened chocolate, so has a creaminess that isn’t too sweet, and comes in a lovely, simple bottle.

There are some other lovely scents around containing a hint of chocolate such as:

Avril Lavigne Black Star(contains dark chocolate)

 Britney Spears Fantasy (white chocolate, jasmine and musk) 

Paco Rabanne Black XS (contains cocoa)

and Calvin Klein CKIN2U (contains cocoa)
