On a beautiful July day in Provence, France our own Sarah Endline, Mastermind and Chief Rioter, married her French beau, Jean-Luc! We'll share more photos soon, but here's a quick taste of their lavendar-filled wedding day!
Here at sweetriot, we’re gearing up for July 4th and coming up with some fun ways to put a twist on our favorite summer treats. Last night we made some decadent sweetriot s’mores with our 70% pure dark squares and fresh raspberries! YUM! They were wonderfully delicious, and we’d love for you to try them as well! If you don’t have a fire pit or a fireplace, try toasting your marshmallows in your broiler. Just be sure to line a pan with tin foil and keep an eye on your marshmallows as they toast to perfection. Have a fabulous and riotous July 4th!
Rioters near and far -- Happy Earth Day! This is a very special day for all of us, and we'd like to remind everyone of our partnership with CarbonFund. We are offsetting our emissions in the office, AND you can offset your online orders too! Just add ‘riot carbonfree’ to your sweetriot shopping cart.
By doing so, you will invest 50¢ into climate-friendly projects such as
energy efficiency, renewable energy, and reforestation! Go, Earth!
I was very proud of my rioting friend, Kerri, who works at Apex Art and just organized an amazing exhibit curated by Dave Eggers. A few of us went to opening night and the line was around the block! This is worth a visit...until May 10 in Tribeca.
I was so happy to travel to San Juan over break. New Year's Eve there was amazing - let's just say the Puerto Ricans know how to celebrate. I traveled with one of my favorite Latin friends, Rosina. Most evenings lasted until at least 3 a.m. :) Here are a few of my favorite places - New Year's Eve at the El San Juan Hotel, Xmas Lights on the streets of Old San Juan, and the beautiful pool at the El San Juan.
I'm so excited for 2008! With each new year comes a set of new challenges and this year will be no different for sweetriot! I hope you had a great New Year's! Don't forget we're always open to feedback if you have ideas for us!
Before New Year's, I had a great visit to Florida visiting
my dad and sister, who are about an hour away from Orlando in Winter Haven.
Per tradition, we visited the holiday lights at Cypress Gardens (the first ever amusement park in
Florida, which is famous for it's water ski shows!) They had performers through out the park until 10 pm at night!
We also visited Bok
Sanctuary which is the highest point in the
peninsula of Florida. Bok holds great concerts during the year and has the
Pinewood Mansion which is fully decorated for the holiday season. Take a look
at the photo of poinsettias at Bok!
As it's hard to avoid shopping in December, I also helped my sister purchase a new laptop -- she got the coolest Red Sony Vaio!!
Exciting news – on Thursday I went to 30 Rock (seriously) where I filmed an elevator pitch with JJ Ramberg and the great team from 'Your Business' on MSNBC.
They invited me to do an elevator pitch for sweetriot, and I was actually in an elevator with experts for a few minutes on the show. Here are some behind the scenes shots in the studio and with JJ, the lovely host.
We're on MSNBC tomorrow, Sunday, December 23, at 7:30 a.m. EST. Check it out! (Video clip here)
