A WOMAN Like No Other- Oprah's Final Farewell... A Sad Week In Candy Land

Lot's of us have mentors, idols, people we admire & look up to, individuals who we want to be more like and emulate right? When I was 7 years old I said! " I wanna be a talk show host!" My theme song was called "Just Jackie" and I remember every step to the awkward dance routine and every word of the theme song I wrote all by myself. Granted, the theme song only consisted of 10 words that I kept repeating over and over again.  Maybe one day there will be a need for an in-depth, fun & quirky talk show in Candy Land. Anyhow, Oprah has represented something to my life that I can't even put into words but it's so deep and meaningful to me that her departure from 25 years of her talk show has impacted me so much so that every time I see her face on TV or hear her speak about her departure, I cry. No surprise, there has been so much crying lately it's starting to get a little ridiculous. Maybe time to make another appt with Dr. Issues.

Getting to work for this brilliant woman on a couple of her events and having had the opportunity to be with her face to face for a couple minutes and even having her put her hands on my pregnant belly nearly a year ago today and acknowledging my existence and even telling me my candy was pretty was the ONLY star struck moment I've ever really had. I honestly never thought I'd even have the opportunity to be in the same space as this woman who means so much to me let alone, be at her party eating her cocktail wieners too! You never know where your life will lead you and while most believe that their wildest dreams can't or won't ever come true, I was raised to believe- There are NO Impossibilities!  Skies the limit for us all baby and Mama Oprah, Congratulations on the monumental success of your show, you are truly a ONE and ONLY kind of woman and a Gem of a human being!

Update on the Grandpa To The Candy Empire!!! Georgie is Kicking Cancer's Fat Ass!!!

I'm a little overwhelmed at how many sweet emails, texts and facebook messages I've received and keep receiving in the last couple of days. Don't know how to thank you and just saying "thank you" doesn't seem like enough. I mean, you guys offer to send dinner, help me with all our work and events, which must go on even during critical moments in life and you even offer to babysit my baby! I don't know most of you but the gesture alone has had me in permanent ugly cry for days. Anyhow,  SO Happy to report that my dad's surgery went wonderfully on Wed. Thank God for his brilliant team of Doctors who have the precision of Picasso and are taking care of my dad with the ut-most in care & compassion. When faced with life's challenges we all have a choice, Give -Up or Fight Like Hell! My dad went into his surgery wearing Boxing Gloves. Cancer, Beware! He's Kicking your Fat Ass you EXPLITIVE, BLEEP, BLEEP, CENSORED WORD!!!  Human connections make the world go round and the impact you're all having on my life is monumentally unexplainable and the most touching thing I've ever experienced. Free Lollipops for Everyone!!! No More Crying in Candy Land!

Candy Land is Closed Today! Please Say A Lil' Prayer For Georgie- The Grandpa To The Candy Empire!!!

Hi Guys! Asking if you can say a prayer for my dad Georgie who's having surgery today. I figured with all the people who read and may stumble upon this lil' ol' silly blog, that could potentially be lots of prayers. It doesn't matter how you pray, who you pray to or what you believe in.. Just talk to the Big Man and ask him to watch over Georgie. He's One in A Gazillion!

Thanks with all my heart!

A Coco Chanel Inspired Platinum Wedding & Parisian Sweets Table, Macaroons Tower & Candy Station. Ooh-La-La

Breathe Fashionistas.. Breathe...
There are some events that simply take your breath away... This wedding was certainly one of them. If you're a Fashionista then you'd appreciate this Coco Chanel inspired wedding at the absolutely divine Langham Huntington Hotel. The paper flower Chanel inspired wall was the centerpiece to this stunning affair and served as a backdrop to the Bride & Groom's table and their beautiful cake. We created a most magical and elegant dessert & candy station that was a feast of Parisian delights! Pink Shimmered Macaroons, A Macaroon Tree and Giant Edible Macaroons with the couples initials was a fun new element that was included onto their table. This event was all about the details, the sophistication and a clean & modern elegance that was simply unforgettable. We wish this happy couple a lifetime of happiness and we're honored to have been a part of it.
