I can definitely eat more of some candy than I should, so I have found that if I have coffee or a chai latte, it curbs the sugar craving.

When I started Dylan's Candy Bar in 2001, I wanted it to be a place that merged my love of pop culture, fashion, art and music with candy. Since then, we have been fortunate to pioneer artistic partnerships with many legends.

Being in meetings - that feels like work. But finding candy, being in the store - that's fun, and it drives me.

It's important for me to eat really healthy because I have such a sweet tooth. I eat fish and vegetables for lunch and dinner, and I work out every day.

While I'm in L.A. I always make time for my favorite activity which is hiking. The trails in California are amazing, as they are always challenging, and I never get bored from all the beautiful scenery.

There are a few entrepreneurs whom I look up to. My dad, Ralph Lauren, has definitely evolved into a lifestyle brand of clothing and home furnishings.

I love all the gift guides that the magazines put out, whether it's 'InStyle' doing Mother's Day gifts or color guides, or the 'O' magazine Christmas guide.

The people at Dylan's Candy Bar, they have to have an inner child and a sense of fun... and love the colors and the textures.

Putting good energy into your body and raising your serotonin will lead to a positive mood, exuding a more attractive glow.

I'll offset neutral shades with bright colors. It helps me stand out without looking cartoonish.

There's no denying that candy is comfort food and it's affordable.

I collect candy packaging from around the world and believe it has the value of Pop Art.

Anytime you can promote young artists and designers is a cool thing.

One day, I hope to have a pot bellied pig and a wombat as pets.

If you're running a race, and you're looking at the lane to your right or your left, you're gonna trip instead of... focusing forward.

I think it's really important to be outdoorsy.

I always saw candy as art.

I love the BlackBerry. I'm on it all the time. I literally wrote my whole book, 'Unwrap Your Sweet Life,' on the BlackBerry while I was working out on the StairMill. So many people tease me about having a BlackBerry, but I meet a lot of people who still use one. Obama has a BlackBerry!

Believe in yourself, listen to your gut, and do what you love.

I dye my eyelashes on occasion so I don't have to wear mascara. I find that mascara weighs on my eyes, making me sleepy, and it is a pain to take off.

I don't like sitting still at a desk and often conduct business on my Blackberry or in walking meetings.

I always feel better when my hair looks good.

I always liked the idea of leadership and being a captain.

I feel like I filled a niche for myself as a candy freak, trying to find candies all around the world that I couldn't find.

I'm a stuffed rabbit collector.

I always loved the retail entertainment sector, like FAO Schwartz, where it's a little more exciting than just going into a little corner deli candy place.

If these rich women from 5th Avenue spend a fortune on cashmere sweaters, they will come to my store to buy gummy bears.

If people try to cut sugar out completely, they often splurge later. That isn't a good idea.

If I wasn't doing candy, I'd want to create the best rescue animal-shelter organization. Otherwise, the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson were so much a part of my childhood, and Janet and I have become friends. So my second dream job would be backup singer for Janet Jackson!

My dad is very down to earth, and I view him as a creative genius, and I am very proud of that.

My husband is the cook at our house. I can make dessert and salad, but I stay away from meals. He makes amazing omelets, fish, and grilled vegetables like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower.

When I think of flavours, I think colour, so lemon should be yellow and orange is orange.

Whenever I meet with nutritionists, we discuss the idea of having everything in moderation and that people should eat protein or fiber when they eat sugar.

I try to stay hydrated!

I don't read a lot of books but love magazines like 'Psychology Today.' It's great for getting quick facts.

My mom is a painter and photographer and my grandfather was an artist, so I've always been surrounded by creative people.

I find that the people who don't eat as much candy are really into heavy protein, like steak. I don't eat that.

My parents always told me, 'Do what you love because that is what you will do well in.' They told me to make sure that you are happy.

My favorite genre is definitely romantic comedy. I love 'When Harry Met Sally.'

We chose to use a surrogate as the way we wanted to start our family, particularly as I was traveling across the globe on a stressful schedule to get stores open.

I am very athletic and like to play tennis, run, hike, and work out with my trainer. I also enjoy traveling, and given that it's a part of my job, I get to do it a lot.

I was not a girly girl. I was a tomboy.

I like having a lot of sunlight because it helps me wake up. And I don't get depressed in winter.

I did have a 1977 Barbie, but I was more into stuffed animals than dolls.

On really hot days, I try to motivate friends and family to come into the pool for an aqua jogging session which I teach. Aqua jogging is a great way to avoid the impact of regular walking or jogging on land. This is especially beneficial for those who have joint pain or who are healing from an injury.

Pinterest has been helpful to my business. Making inspiration boards is really key to developing products. When I was getting married, I literally cut out tear sheets and put my own boards together. Had I known about Pinterest, I would have been able to do it so much more easily.

Summer is very precious.

My husband proposed to me on the beach using candy.

People will say candy is recession-proof, and we're definitely seeing nostalgic candies coming about, and people want that sugar rush and that nostalgic happiness, like their childhood times.
