I have a demonstrated love for chocolate, so imagine my thrill when I discovered Chocomize, a company that lets you make chocolate bars with any kind of filling you want. You pick between white (ew, sorry), milk or dark chocolate, and then choose from a wide variety of nuts, spices, fruits, candy and decorations — like happy birthday notes or crystallized rose petals. Guys, you can even add potato chips, bacon or corn flakes if you want. Clearly, you can see how this can quickly get way out of control. In the most delicious way possible.
Your plan to get your taxes done early has gone out the window. You consistently feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day, between friends, work, eating and sleeping.

But that’s okay, because we’re going to help you fix that. Really! First though, put down your iPhone and focus. Eyes up here!

Move over Hailee Steinfeld, there’s a new face of Miu Miu, and it’s fellow actress Mia Wasikowska. Miss Mia is an ancient 22, compared to Hailee’s wee 14, but judging from the first campaign images coming out of Miu Miu, she’s more than up for the job. I’m really digging the glossy, studio-lit shots — mostly because they’re a great way to actually see the clothes — which are completely and utterly stunning, by the way. Anybody got a spare few thousand they’d like to give me to spend on Miu Miu? And check out another shot after the jump, where she bears a striking resemblance to Kate Moss.
