FabFavFinds for May

Foodie Pen Pals

Try something new this month! For everyone who loves trying new stuff this is such a great club to be a part of! Crystal found a fun concept which pairs you up with someone in a different state and every month you send your foodie pal a box of treats ($15 value) from your city – in return you also receive a surprise package. Get familiar with foods and snacks you have never heard of or might have never tried if it wasn’t for this. This service is free and easy. All details can be found on The Lean Green Bean blog.

Oliva Serie V 

A few weeks ago we had a chance to sit down with the VP of Marketing & Sales at JMG International and get some insight and try some great cigars. Not being the most avid cigar smoker my fav had to be the Oliva Serie V. Rated 94 Points by Cigar Aficionado – This attractive, oily cigar is full of dynamic nut, wood and sweet cedar flavors that frame a substantial leather core. The finish is long and rich. Toasty and complex. So pour yourself a nice glass of wine and enjoy a taste of Oliva Serie V

DIY Christmas: Keepsake Ornaments & Cinnamon Crafts

DIY Christmas

My new favorite gift to make and give | Keepsake Ornaments

Keepsake Ornament

If you have attended any weddings recently and still have the invitation or any party favors from the wedding this is a must do! Quick, simple and memorable. I had the pleasure of attending two amazing weddings this year and now I get to give a gift to my friends that they can have forever.

What you need:

  • Clear, empty round ornaments (Michael’s sells them in packs or singles in all different sizes)
  • The invitation and glitter or any other fillings you would like to add.

Keepsake Ornamanets

Start by cutting the invitation into very thin pieces. Depending on the material of the invitation you can curl it around your finger or with scissors. Fill the ornament with the sliced paper. Add glitter or any other decorations you would like. For one of the ornaments I added a couple of the matches that were given away on their special day. Add a hanger or a pretty piece of decorated string and gift. I guarantee this will be a gift they will cherish forever.
