You can’t go wrong with the gift of food. These Charcuterie boxes are beautiful and delicious. They come in a variety of sizes so you can order a small box for the friend or family member that has everything or a big box to snack on while friends and family come visit. These boxes are made to order and can be made to fit dietary needs.

This is an amazing candy store! They stock unique, hard to find candy and soda. If you are craving a treat from your childhood this is probably where you will find it. They have the world’s largest gummy worms, Harry Potter chocolate wands, and bags of strawberry marshmallows (my favorite). They have something for everyone.

Color Street with Kayla
The new way to paint your nails. These nail polish strips are made of real nail polish. They just stick onto your nails, no drying time. I have always wanted cute painted nails but I didn’t like how nail polish felt and I always made a mess on my fingers when I applied it. These nail strips are mess free and I love the way they look and feel. Hint – put them on before bed so they have plenty of time to set.
Color Street with Kayla is giving away a set of nails to two lucky winners.
