My birthday was absolutely shows_wicked

wicked friends

What a great day--full of surprises and new experiences!

Our first stop was Tea Geschwender Sensual Affair caught my taste buds-not to be disappointed. A fruity, tangy mélange of fresh raspberries and strawberries, rounded off with a touch of vanilla.

Haut Chocolate at Vosges~


I sampled several exotic chocolates...think about add ins such as bacon, dried kalamatta olives, smoked almonds, ginger, wasabi, sea salt. Most tasty; some interesting...but the one I took home harbored Indian cardamon, dried plums and walnuts nestled in Venezuelan dark chocolate. Yum~Calindia_Bar_Pop

We experimented with essential oils, creating our own fragrance & body products at Aroma Workshop.

I brought home Petals & White Tea laced shea butter to smooth my skin. Couldn't resist the Pink Sugar hair cream....sweet as cotton candy. Bob bought some manly desert aloe scent that smelled really nice as well...for a guy scent.

Lunch at Ambrosia then on to Broadway in Chicago~

After a spectacular performance of WICKED at the Oriental Theatre, we dined at my favorite restaurant, Maggianos. Scrumptious!! We finished the evening with a movie...a rare experience for me these days.

What a day...a delightful day~
