A Chocolate Salon?

Okay, we saw the words ‘chocolate’ and ‘salon’ in a press release and our ears just perked up. Could it be true? Well, sadly (or maybe not?) it was actually a taste event that featured one of our fav things, chocolate, at the International Chocolate Salon, for their Seattle Original Artisan Chocolate event . 

sigh

Ok, we’re not in Seattle and even if we were, we missed it, and it’s not beauty related but still… how cool is this?

Read on and you never know, we just might be there next year. ;)
