A Chocolate Lovers Wishlist- Celebrating UK Chocolate Week 2014

You may not have known it but this week is chocolate week, and it's not over yet. The Chocolate Show offers demonstrations, tastings, truffle rolling, even couture outfits made entirely of chocolate! It's held at London's Olympia is still on until 19th October and tickets can be bought on the door so if you're at a loose end pop in. If you're not near London there are other events around the country for more details see here. There's never been a better excuse to dig deep into a box of Quality Street.
Personally I haven't really tried many chocolate flavoured body care or make up- but I do remember a certain chocolate flavoured lip gloss from the body shop in the 90's. It was more chocolate fudge/cocoa than a true chocolate taste and smell and was a browny pink colour! I should really go and try their current chocomania products. Anyway to celebrate chocolate week I have put together a wish list that's almost good enough to eat.

Body care

1. Looking just like a box of chocolates, these gorgeous handmade bath bombs will make your bath extra special. The box includes vanilla bath creamer, chocolate orange bath creamer, coffee mocha Bath meltz ,chocolate bath mallow, double choc chip bath gem and chocolate Buttercup. From
