Welcome to The Chocolate Corgi!
The first question people ask me is if I sell chocolates shaped like Corgis. Fair question, but nope! Truth is, I was sitting with a dear friend trying to find a name for my vision, and she simply asked me what are my favorite things. Without hesitation, I replied "chocolate and corgis"! The list of my favorite things is long and varied, but at the top would be shopping. Luckily, I happen to be darn good at it and I am so excited to share this passion with you! Whether you are wearing it, or have it in your home, the items I search for are quality things that make you happy to own. My dream is to have people keep coming back to my site, going with me on my journey of purveying goods from around the country maybe even the world! I hope you find things that make your world a better place and bring you a slice of happiness. Happy Shopping, and thanks for stopping by.

As the last quarter of this year is upon us, I find myself getting quite introspective about my decision to start this business. You know how they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I'm here to tell you WOOF!! (dog speak for bullshit!!). I have learned so much about the retail business, marketing and surprisingly most of all...about myself. When I retired at a pretty young age, it was such a relief. I was thinking of all the time I would get to spend doing fun stuff and relaxing. But over time, I think its really important to have a passion and a purpose. In the beauty business, I loved making women feel beautiful and pretty hair is always at the top of the list. But since my back and neck decided to go on strike, I have longed for an avenue where I could still provide that. Hence, the Chocolate Corgi was born.
I am certain I'm on the right path because this doesn't feel like work to me. I'm so excited and passionate to find things and match them with the people who will rock them, and I get to witness it. It's awesome!! I have been blessed with great feedback from my friends and family and now my goal is to take this "ripple" to the next level. If every friend brought one friend into the mix, then this business can go to the next level. So I will sing, "I aint too proud to beg" and ask my friends to help a sister out over here and bring a friend or 2 to my next trunk show. ()
It's going to be December 1st (a co-ed nighttime event) and a full day on Saturday the 2nd. Because it's holiday time, I will be searching for gifts to give and to receive. They say it's better to give, but some of this stuff is so cute you're going to want to receive ()
Please mark you calendar and I'm hoping to see you for some Holiday Cheer, shopping and laughs. We will be offering gift wrap and delivery to make your Holiday shopping even easier.
With much appreciation and gratitude,

A heartfelt thank you to my friends who came out to support me and see what I've been up to these past few months. My favorite thing was watching people's expressions when they walked in!
This wasn't an ordinary house party selling a small line of clothes! It was a legitimate boutique!! We had dresses, rompers, sweaters, skirts, blouses, sexy tops, and resort wear. We had oodles of bracelets and necklaces of all sorts and earrings galore.
Then a gift table with lots of fun, beautiful items that would make great gifts for Mother's Day, or just because!! Did I mention handbags? Totes, cross body and in between! Beach bags and hats!!
It was awesome and I had an absolute blast. I look forward to coming back to Vegas in September to do it all again with all new collections. I hope you will all make it out again 💗

Raise your hand if you're ready for Bathing Suit Season! Wait a minute, did I see a hand go up? Here, hold my donut while I go slap her ;-p
Am I the only one who did more of this, than hit the gym?
Seriously though, most of us still struggle with the thought of getting into a bathing suit after 6 months of glorious cool weather clothing.
Well, here at CC we feel your pain and we've got the answer!! Sexy, beautiful, and classy cover ups!
Throw in a spray tan, sunglasses, and a beautiful beach hat and you're good to go!
There now, wasn't that easier than spin class?
You're welcome ;-)
And here's a little bonus I thought you might like ;-)

My Secret Vacation Destination
l love Mexico. And my favorite place in Mexico is, Punta Mita. I almost hate to tell anyone about it because it's getting busier and busier each time I go.
But you can't keep awesome things a secret forever. There is a spot overlooking the Infinity Edge Pool which overlooks the Pacific. Between the view and the Pineapple Margarita in my hand (and delicious Fish Tacos for daily lunch), well there's just nothing better. Or at least I thought.
My Fashion Finds from Punta Mita
Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted an outdoor kiosk selling these beautiful Resort Style Clothes. Me being me, I had to go in for a closer look. They were made with Light Fabrics that are airy and flow. They are stylish and comfortable and oh so cute!!
Come to find out they are European designed and depending on where you find them, they can be quite pricey. So I did my homework and found a way to bring them to The Chocolate Corgi and share them with you.
The Chocolate Corgi Mission
I try to find special things that you will love and keep my prices affordable. The best way to enjoy these resort styles is with a Pineapple Margarita in your hand, but if you can't do that, then I promise you will enjoy them anywhere. :)
