Dessert Goals is genius – I didn’t find out about it to the weekend it was happening I must have been on cloud nine but then found out and was so lucky to get a ticket. I try to eat healthy and when I indulge in sugar it is typically ice cream or amazing dessert – this was a dream come true – we went all out trying everything and then had to go on a sugar cleanse but I think if you are going to have sugar make it count and make it decadent. The fantastic part is that a lot of the creators of these companies were there and they are so awesome and with so many cool details and they are so incredibly artistic it was so awesome to meet all of them. Also the founders of Dessert Goals are genius – love this idea and it was so fun and fantastically executed. I can’t wait for the next one in New York but if you are out in LA in June – check it out – http://dessertgoals.com/ check out more here – https://www.instagram.com/omgdessertgoals/
