Viktoria Richards Chocolates

Life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what'cha gonna get.  Well, not when it comes to Viktoria Richards Chocolates at least.  You know that you are going to get a deliciously unique batch of handmade artisan chocolates made with lots of love and care each and every time!  


If you are wondering who "Viktoria Richards" is, well...here's the scoop. She doesn't exist.  The company's name was the inspiration of chocolatier Victoria Boyko, who wanted to create a line of chocolates with customers in mind. Hence, the name "Viktoria Richard's represents a fictional person of who she thinks her customers are.  

So, after devouring a whole box of chocolates, I don't feel so guilty, because I am eating something that was made for me.  Was that a good excuse?  Okay, the chocolates are so darn good, I couldn't help myself!

I must admit, after my first sampling of Viktoria Richards Chocolates, I was hooked!  I had to make a personal trip to visit their location in New Port Richey, FL to re-stock. 

Upon my arrival, I was greeted with the sweet smell of chocolate and a delightful scene. 

The shop was beautifully decorated, not surprising, in the company's signature red and pink.  Felt like valentines day all over again. 

Various flavors of gourmet chocolates, such as Morello Cherry Caramel, Pinneapple Chipolte, and Lemon Vodka, just to name a few, were carefully guarded displayed in modern glass cases like precious gems.  

As customer's walked in, they talked about their weekly visit to Victoria Richards Chocolates to feed the crave.  In some cases, due to popularity, flavors were sold out. Don't believe me?  See below as my evidence.

Are you drooling at the screen yet?  Well, wait no more you can purchase Viktoria Richards Chocolates online or at select locations throughout the Tampa area.  

Want to sample flavors before you buy?  We are pleased to announce that Viktoria Richards Chocolates will be joining The HOAJ and a host of other vendors for the premiere launch of TWIN Collections SS14 on Sept. 27th at The Vault located in Downtown Tampa.  The company will be serving up samples of their delicious works of art and I'm sure they will gain plenty of lifelong fans. 

Hope to see you there!

Indulge in the moment!

Live & Love,

Micheal Jordan not only breaks records on the basketball court, he's making history with weddings too. I was able to capture a few photos of this star studded wedding to share.  Enjoy!

Jordan married his longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto over the weekend and spared no expense at making it the wedding of her dreams.  The wedding cost a reported $10,000,000! The couple married at the beautiful Episcopal church Bethesda-by-the Sea in Palm Beach, Florida.  Yvette looked absolutely stunning in a handmade, French silk, corseted dress with Swarovski crystal accents designed by J'Aton Couture.  The reception was held in a massive tent at the Bear's Club in Jupiter, FL boasting over 40,000 square feet (5,000 square feet larger than Jordan's home I must add).  This makes it the world's largest wedding tent in history! 

One can only imagine what the scenery was like under this enormous tent.  From the photos, I can tell it was amazing! 

According to reports, the 2,000+ guests dined in the main event room filled with roses, tulips, and peonies arranged by Mark's Garden. Later, the guests were entertained by artists such as Usher, Robin Thicke, and other performers in a grand ballroom.  The color scheme appeared to be lavender and white, with silver and crystal accents.  

In the photo above, you can catch a glimpse of the special lighting reflecting a damask design pattern on the dance floor.  The effect was allowed by special floor and ceiling paneling that blocks light to enable lighting effects.

The world's largest wedding tent also included private cigar rooms and two side tents that housed luxurious bathrooms. 

I am in hopes that they release more photos for us to share. Until then, let's drool over the ones we have here.

Live and Love!
