It Started with HELLO

 Hello Loves!

  When Lindt HELLO offered to sponsor today's post, one of their chocolate bars caught my eye, the Strawberry Cheesecake bar! It's not only because I like cheesecake but it reminds me of a story...

   A question I get ALOT is "How did you meet your husband?" Well, here goes... A long time ago (almost 10 years ago!), I was working as a waitress in a diner and I noticed I would see the same guy everyday! I would always start with "HELLO, what can I get you to drink?" and end with "Would you like any dessert?" The answer was always yes (and it was strawberry cheesecake - see where I'm going with this). Eventually, we decided to hang out and I found out that the reason he came everyday was because he hated cooking, haha. And almost 10 years later, we're still hanging out...

The Lindt HELLO collection is inspired by classic treats, like Strawberry Cheesecake. Other flavors include Caramel Brownie, Crunchy Nougat, and Cookies and Cream. In case you couldn't tell in the first pic, this chocolate bar is pretty big! As for the flavor? Totally tastes like strawberry cheesecake (creamy & tangy) and super yummy!

The Lindt HELLO collection can be enjoyed 3 different ways:
- Sticks – The Lindt HELLO sticks are trendy treats designed for chocolate lovers on-the-go. With six tasty squares you can savor one by one or enjoy all at once, the sticks are just the right size for satisfying those afternoon cravings.

- Bars – Lindt HELLO Bars are not your ordinary candy bars.  The ten luxuriously filled squares that make up a HELLO bar – each covered in irresistibly smooth premium chocolate – are bite-sized packages of delight for your taste buds.

- Mini-Stick Bags – Taste, share and love!  Each bag is filled with bite size Mini Sticks – perfect for sharing with friends or spoiling yourself with the occasional (or daily) chocolate treat.

I couldn't help being inspired and coming up with some super sweet nail art! I decided to go with some water marbling, since strawberry cheesecake usually has pretty drizzling/marbling on top. I used essie Marshmallow & Lollipop, please excuse the clean up!
