Chocolate is good, no, make that great. Oh-so-decadent and delicious, it’s one of the little things in life that makes everything just a bit better. But if you’re allergic to milk or live a dairy-free lifestyle, much of the chocolate out there on the market is off limits. This, Bombshells, is a travesty. Not only are you missing out on the rich and sexy taste, but you’re going without the fabulous health benefits like stress reduction and cell-protecting antioxidants.

Décor doesn’t need to be drab or expensive – in fact, all it takes is a little creativity and some upcycling to turn everyday items into unique, chic items that will compliment any room. Go a little green this spring and bring nature indoors with a super-simple decorative jar garden.

It’s been almost two months since I started my container garden. What began as a seemingly intimidating task has evolved into a relaxing activity that my husband and I now do together on Sunday afternoons. In the beginning I thought gardening was something “lunching ladies” did to pass the time—not an activity a working professional would be able to squeeze into her already-busy routine. However, like most things, if you really want to do it, you will find the time. I am pleasantly surprised at what I’ve been able to accomplish so far.
Planting a garden and watching it grow is a popular “bucket list” item that happened to make it onto my “checklist of things to do before I turn 30.” In response to my impulsive and daring whim, my husband built me a garden of my very own as a surprise for my 30th birthday. I woke up that morning to a neatly built little garden, filled with plants including chocolate mint, banana peppers, cactus tomatoes, asparagus, avocado and cayenne peppers, tucked into containers. I also received a collection of seeds—onions, zucchini, sunflowers and gladiolas—to get myself started planting and getting seeds to sprout.
