BODIES The Exhibition

The BODIES Exhibition provides an intimate and informative view into the human body. My family had the opportunity to visit this educational and eye-opening exhibit. It is a great educational way to learn about the human body. Using real human bodies and individual specimens, BODIES..The Exhibition really does allow you to look inside the systems of your body: Skeletal, Muscular, Nervous, Respiratory, Urinary, Digestive, Reproductive, Circulatory and the Treated Body. I have to admit before  going I wasn’t sure if it would be appropriate for my 9-year-old son. But, my family was quite impressed with this exhibit. It is very educational and the staff is so knowledgeable! It really was a great experience that shouldn’t be missed! BODIES..The Exhibition is open 7 days a week except on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Located at 7711 beach Blvd, Buena Park,CA. For more information, check out the website.


Self Disclosure: My family visited this amazing exhibit for free but opinions are my own.

New England chocolatier Harbor Sweets new contemporary collection, Salt & Ayre Available this month!


New England chocolatier Harbor Sweets new contemporary collection, Salt & Ayre that was launched at the Summer Fancy Food Show in time for the company’s 40th anniversary and the holiday season. Salt & Ayre was created with support of eminent cookbook author and food veteran Lora Brody and was influenced by the coastal trading ports of hometown Salem, MA. The full upscale line of truffles is rich with 70% cacao bittersweet dark chocolate and evokes an ethereal sensory experience. The line  includes ChaiCafé au Lait, Hazelnut and Espresso; and three sea salt pieces covered with the finest 70% dark chocolate, Caramel with Himalayan Sea Salt, Crystallized Ginger with Thai Ginger Sea Salt, and Almond Butter Crunch garnished with Chipotle Sea Salt. Salt & Ayre features sky blue packaging. The collection debuts this fall in retailers nationwide and online. It ranges from $5.00 to $28.00 MSRP. I received delicious samples of the chocolate collection. I received a box that contained 4 yummy salted chocolates and 5 delicious distinctive truffles. I really can not select my favorite one but the Almond Butter Crunch and the Chai Truffle are sooooo good that I can’t even begin to describe them! They are simply too good for words! They are great with a cup of coffee, after a meal or just by themselves! To find out more (or to order) go check out the Harbor Sweets website.
