If you are craving a sugary treat, but have the will power to refrain from purchasing a bag of gummy bears during your next grocery run, Chic suggests the next best thing to a candy fix…a darling GummiLight that looks just like the penny candy, only enormous and battery powered. Peruse the other home décor confections over at Jellio for some delightful furnishings high in fructose corn syrup. Our favorite picks? The giant candy dots bench and the ice cream sandwich loveseat. Kick back and indulge! THE DETAILS: Jellio, $500 for a set of five GummiLights

It appears that the lowest-rated show on network television, High Society, is coming back for another season. Perhaps the advertisers are responding? Anyway, Tinsley's fellow social starlette Fabiola Beracasa has a television project in the works. Behold a press release Chic received this morning...and check the Gallery for Fab's most interesting looks!
"On behalf of our client, Fabiola Beracasa, the following details have been sent to acknowledge and credit the dress by Vera Wang with Lorraine Schwartz and Eddie Borgo jewelry.

If you've been to the new Zimmerman pop-up store on Greene you know that swimsuit season is practically la. As Chic desperately rallies to lose the kilo caused by excess Da Giacomo and Bistro Paul Bert during fashion season, we turn to Marc Jacobs' nutritional staple Muscle Milk. (He orders boxes of the 100-calorie size to stay in shape, as we learned last September...and quizzed you about at the show. Remember?) Fashionette and budding nutritionista Annelise Peterson concocted the following breakfast recipe Chic heartily endorses:
The AP Power Smoothie:
1 bottle 160-calorie Muscle Milk shake (chocolate or vanilla flavor)
6 ice cubes
1/3 frozen or ripe banana
A handful of frozen blueberries
Blend all in a mixer and drink for breakfast or lunch. "A high-protein breakfast gives you energy, and this refreshing potion is light enough for any time when you need a little pick-me-up," says Peterson.

It finally feels like summer in New York City, which means, of course, that it's time to get out. And whether you're decamping to your Montauk getaway or summering elsewhere this season, we'll bet that a trip to the beach (or pool!) is in the cards---which means you'll be needing some chic new accessories. Hermès, anyone? Sure it may set you back as much as a handbag elsewhere, but how can you argue with those seahorses? THE DETAILS: Hermès beach towel, $530, www.hermes.com
