Candy Cloud + Macaron Throw Pillow

This is a product review for Candy Cloud. It was designed & written by A Very Sweet Blog.
I was a given a macaron throw pillow to review. All opinions are 100% my own.

I had a relaxing weekend. How about you guys? It was chilly & rainy most of the weekend, so I started a new book (I Am Malala), wrote some blog posts, tidied up the house, finished my Christmas tree (I'll share it Christmas Day), enjoyed some hot chocolate, and ate a couple of macarons. My stress-free holiday strategy is working this year. HaHaHa Speaking of macarons, the lovely people from Candy Cloud sent me a beautiful macaron throw pillow to review. Candy Cloud makes yummy things into fluffy things! That's my kind of company! I chose the Earl Grey (Blue) color, because I knew it would match my current bedroom comforter & linens. I was very impressed with this pillow. It's super-soft to the touch. The middle looks like chocolate ganache. The "filler" or "stuffing" used for this pillow is awesome. No crunchy-crunchy, lumpy-lumpy with this pillow! You guys know what I'm talking about. Cheap filler material in pillows is killer for your skin, head and ears. This pillow also supported my big head! If it will support mine, it will support yours. HaHaHa I can't rave enough about it! It's a great accent pillow. They're $25 each. They come in lemon, pistachio, raspberry, lavender and early grey (see below). They're sold individually or you could buy four & get one free. They're also offering free shipping (check their website for current deals). It's the perfect gift for someone sweet.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Disclaimer: I don't eat mint chocolate, but Bath & Body Works scented mint chocolate candle ROCKS!
Thanks Candy Cloud! I LOVE your macaron throw pillow! :)

Morning Kim! My weekend was as yours and I'm curious to see your Xmas tree! Btw, have just checked it out the site and now I'm longing for this pillow too!:) I want the raspberry one since I love pink. It looks very soft and smooth, definitely it is so you! And you are so sweet in the pic! I neither eat mint chocolate but that candle inspires me. Happy Monday! xo


How adorable! I don't think pillows could get any sweeter or cuter. That mint chocolate candle sounds amazing. I love candles, especially sweet scents since I don't really do sugar. :) /Madison
Happy Holidays!

Tina Bradley said...

I am in heaven right now--visions of macarons (real and pillow versions), candles lit and journal at hand... Yum! :) Fab featurings, Kim! Hugs on your Monday! T.

Natalia | Look-A-Porter said...

Aw, they look wonderful! I can imagine filling a little girls room with piles and piles of these, just for fun. :)
We are adopting an idea of a super relaxing Christmas here, too. Got the tree done yesterday and I planned a little menu that won't require a week-worth of cooking. :) :) :)
By the way, if you like candles that smell like food and are very natural, try to find Urban Apothecary candles - they smell good enough to eat! I just got a chocolate orange one for my friend and she loved it. The packaging is super gorgeous, too. I'd bought you one, but they are not allowed in Royal mail international. :(

Have a good Monday:)

I want to read that book! I am finishing up Tamara Mellon's "In My Shoes" then I have a murder mystery to read. I love how macaroons look. And how they are packaged but they are too sweet for me. They always look so cool i get tempted to eat one but always get a wee bit woozy from all the sugar. And that pillow haha so right up your alley!

Okay Kim, looking at this post I want to eat macarons and sleep. Bad combo...ha. I have been eating way too much sweets as of late and my face is as round as your macaron pillow..sigh.

You are too kind and sweet, there are def better photographers and bakers out there. I am just an amatuer trying to feed my family 's bellies. Can't wait to see your Christmas tree.

I'm loving all the sweet goodness Kim and have been feeling like picking up some macarons lately myself, so your post is probably going to push me right over that edge :) Hope you're having a wonderful Monday!

How cute! That's the first time I've seen macarons cushions. It sounds like a wonderfully relaxing weekend and the book you are reading is one that I plan to buy soon too. Those macarons look so tempting. I wish there was somewhere closer to home where they had good quality ones. However I suppose if there was, I would eat far too many! Have a good week, Kim.

Cee said...

You know I can never resist anything sweet and French-inspired... your macaron pillow is just too cute, Kim! It reminds me a little bit of a grown up version of a Pillow Pet. Soft and snuggly for sleeping - but also pretty and functional for decorating! Thanks for the introduction to Candy Cloud :)
