Festival Themed Cupcakes

CIFF CupcakesAs you know, I work seasonally for the Cleveland International Film Festival. Each year, they have these gorgeous campaigns with the coolest shirts, accessories and posters to match. While I was prepping for the festival, I caught myself looking at the cover of this year’s Program Guide.

This year, they added a feature called Augmented Reality into the cover. Meaning, when you downlaod the free app “Layer” to your Smart Phone or tablet, you watch as the program guide comes to life before your very eyes.  Continue reading

BonbonDuring this special M of Hearts series on Cleveland, Ohio, I brought up some locations for main course meals and a fun shop.

In case you are in the mood for something a little lighter and delicate, consider a trip to Bonbon.

It’s one of the highlights of my year and I literally count down for its arrival each year. With all of the award shows that have recently come and gone, I have been thinking about movies. Literally. They consume me in the best way possible. You know how some people have memories based on scents? As in, a certain smell will take them back to a moment in time? Well, that happens to me when it comes to movies. I have had some of the best experiences of my life thanks to cinema. I have met some wickedly talented (eh, eh, get it?) individuals and have had both hardships and love because of film.

It’s also no surprise that I love sugar and candy. So when thinking of movies and what my ‘routine’ is when I head to the theaters to catch the latest flick, I wondered what my friends enjoyed eating, and more specifically, what their favorite candy was to dine on while at the movies.
