Not really candy but tons of chocolate. And guess what? Now is the PERFECT time for chocolate: It’s almost Valentine’s day. This time of year reminds of sweet aromas of vanilla and rose petals flow in the wind and hearts are worn on sleeves..
I just get more passionate about my sweet tooth.
Candy on the beach, there’s nothing better
But I like candy when it’s wrapped in a sweater
Some day soon I’ll make you mine,
Then I’ll have candy all the time
I absolutely adore vintage valentines cards.
And I am preparing myself to have a very vintage valentine’s day. It’s the perfect excuse to buy great goodies at vegan bake sales like Whalentines which will donate all profits to Sea Shepherd which will be at Moo Shoes in New York City on Sunday, February 12th.
Moo Shoes sells all vegan footwear store that is located in the Lower East Side and is somewhere I tend to frequent whether it is to shop, go to an event(like bake sales or book readings!) and or just see some friends of mine who work there and pet the cats. I always head over there to marvel at the beautiful new vegan shoe fashions out there whether I can afford it at the time or not but this Whalentines: I will be buying myself quite a bit of goodies and am likely going to share.
What is a vintage valentines, you ask? Well, considering I usually wear vintage and most likely it seems as if I might be flying solo: I will be dressing myself fashionably and for a night on the town & possibly even taking myself out on a date. Maybe even purchase some lovely lingerie from my friends line in Dublin: HoneyTrap Boudoir which reminds me of the classic sexy calendar girl retro style I always like to go for when wearing my lace little nighties. (And yes, I have many of those).
I am kind of addicted to vintage lingerie: the feel and satin that usually just drapes over my curves perfectly. We all admire this and I for one will speak on it. Lingerie is a spectacular fashion and sometimes I do not understand why most women now a day’s don’t spend time wearing it. Its classic, it’s beauty under your clothes and pleasing when you lay between your sheets: alone or with a significant other. This is in fact an instant confidence booster to know that you look as good as you feel.
Where will I go? A classic movie at the IFC? Buying myself a lovely vintage valentine? Wait, let me stop for a moment, I LOVE vintage valentine’s. They were creative, gentle and now just pure precious: always innocent and sweet like candy, because I want candy(chocolate).
The candy of choice will be my chocolate of choice:
Occupy my heart with Fine & Raw Chocolate
Only choosing the best for myself: Fine & Raw. I have a thing for aphrodisiacs and this exactly what it is: Raw chocolate. Ever want to make a grown woman like myself smile? I’ll give you a hint: this is it. All vegan and loving, no animal products in it what-so-ever.
Also you can purchase Sweet & Sara’s Heart Marshmallows! Delicious and smooth, I actually would love this as a treat, indeed!….
Sweet & Sara Marshmallow! All vegan.
I will dance over to one of my favorite restaurants and enjoy a candlelight dinner. So honestly, whether you are going out on a date for valentines and or taking yourself out solo or out with your friends, I think you should enjoy a classic vintage valentine’s day full of kisses full yourself or kisses for someone else. Wear a lovely dress, buy some delicious chocolate….and get your candy, lots of candy. I know I will fe3el and look beautiful where ever or however I end up on this day because to me it’s just like any other day of the year except you see a lot more red & hearts and people seem to make a point to be just a bit more sentimental. Though, I am sentimental every day, being single or with my friends or even with someone I care for: Valentines day is not just one day a year but everyday. Oh yes, while I smell of sweet vanilla.
So it’s not entirely valentines day yet and I will most likely write about it in the future and maybe my plans will change; maybe not. I already had some sweet dark chocolate covered cashews this morning: always a nice treat & a lovely nibble to wake up to. Aphrodisiacs are a daily need.
Speaking of Aphrodisiacs: Music is my number one aphrodisiac as it eases it’s way into my heart and soul with it’s lyrics and riffs. I will be listening to some nice jazz and then some classic rock if need be. Just to set the perfect tone to my night…
Mod about sparkling; vintage dress bought at AUH2O. Flower Pom Pom headband (my roommates!) & vintage mod pokodot bracelet.
SO obviously, this morning I was thinking of the English punk band: Bow Wow Wow, no I am not referring to the R&B/Rap artist kid of the 90s. But the genius punk band that we all have grown up listening to. The video for “I want Candy ” came out in 1981 & is still often played on the radio. Is this because it’s upbeat? Hell yes. I love that no matter what: you want to shake your bum to it. (And I’ll even do it in my lingerie! ha!) So today this song inspired my 80s “mod” outfit. Isn’t it marvelous how music can often inspire your outfits for the day? Or is that just me?
Last night I went shopping at AuH2o last night and again came out with quite a few items: The dress I wore today, some plastic colorful bracelets & a mod ring, school girl gray skirt & a striped blue long tunic with a peter pan collar (very mod).
So this year, I want chocolate…
And you can pick some chocolate and other goodies up at The Whalentines Bake Sale for Sea Shepherd at Moo Shoes (78 Orchard Street) on February 12, 2012 from 12:30 to 5:30 PM.
Dance with me on valentine’s or I’ll just be dancing to myself.
I want candy, I want candy
I want candy, I want candy…
