There’s nothing sweeter than a box of decadent, gourmet chocolates made with the finest ingredients available.  For National Honey Month, I indulged in a flight of Gather Chocolate, created by Harbor Sweets.  The Gather Chocolate flight contained six individual honey-infused chocolates including a Pomegranate Molasses, Sour Cherry truffle, and a Coconut Cluster.  I absolutely loved all of them.  The hints of honey paired with the delicious dark chocolate was a splendid treat.

Beyond being incredibly pleasant to the taste, these treats are a mission-driven product that advocates the current plight of honeybees.  Harbor Sweets teamed up with the Pollinator Partnership to help bring awareness to the global Honeybee crisis.  You may or may not know, but Honeybees are dying out at alarming rates each year due to pesticides and parasites.  Typically, I associate this month with Fashion Week in New York and London, the September Issue of Vogue, etc., but now I can also help address issues like this one while enjoying a lavish sweet.  Save the bees.  Be a part of the solution.

I’m happy I can curb my craving while supporting a cause at the same time.  Stay connected with Harbor Sweets on Instagram, and to learn more about the Pollinator Partnership, click here.  As always, I love to hear from you, so let me know your thoughts on this wonderful treat or the Honeybee crisis.  You might get lucky and receive a gifted box of Gather Chocolates from me, compliments of Harbor Sweets!

Love, Abi

Last night I attended a dinner in honor of Jeff Leatham – renowned International Florist . The venue was the Wheat Baker hotel and we were treated to an exquisite five course dinner. It was a great night of laughter, socializing and networking with beautiful people. I wore a black silk organza dress from Nigerian designer Bridget Awosika which i absolutely loved, shoes from Azzedine Alaia and a Prada clutch.
