My Discoveries

Since I can't think of anything else to write about I'll tell you about some of my recent "discoveries" - things that I love, love, love and would like to introduce you to.

Adina Coffees - oh my gosh, these are so good! They were sampling them at Costco last week and I was hooked! They come in a variety pack (Mayan Mocha, Ethiopian Double Espresso and Sumatran Vanilla Latte) and you get sixteen of them for $17. I also tried the Indian Chai when we were at the SF Zoo, which was equally as delish. They are organic and certified fair-trade, which is also awesome. They have been fabulous during these hot, hot days when it's ridiculous to make a trip in the sweltering heat just to go to Peet's. Try them - you will not be disappointed!

The Shopping Detective - my new favorite show! It's on The Fine Living Network (channel 104) on Saturdays at 8:00 and 8:30 am. It tells you how to find the best quality products - what to look for, what questions to ask, etc. I also have a small "Non-Sexual Girl Crush*" (Andrea coined that phrase in high school!) on the host, Lindsey Gladstone! I have my DVR set to record the series so I never miss a show!

The Vintage Pearl - a fabulous Etsy shop. I am currently wearing my second piece of jewelry from there, and Erin (the shop owner/jewelry creator) is working on my third - a necklace that will say "You are my sunshine" (The song I always sing to Leila!) I also got my mom a neckalce from there, and plan on buying many, many more things. The prices are beyond reasonable and each piece is one-of-a-kind!

I'm currently obsessed with this "Project Runway" inspired necklace. How cute is it?!

Now, I need YOUR opinion - what do you think about my "Discoveries" post? Should it become a regular thing? Go ahead and let me know in a comment - be kind. Also, be sure to let me know of any discoveries YOU have made recently!

*Non-Sexual Girl Crush: a girl who you would like to be friends with, would like to go shopping with, and want to gossip with over iced mochas. Past NSGCs include: Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, etc.) This phrase was coined by my BFF, circa 2000.
