CHOCOLATE EDITIONS ///

Chocolate Editions by Mary & Matt are beautifully delicious. It was initially their chocolate pie chart that caught my attention when it made its rotations around the blogosphere, but they have many more treats – check it out!

Social Shopping Comes to Levi’s With facebook connect popping up everywhere, it’s no surprise that e-commerce is turning to the power of facebook sharing to make a more robust shopping experience. It’s a matter of time before everyone is on the band wagon, but for now this is fun and unique!
