Recent Finds

I recently discovered Port Winsor Style, it's a new company that specializes in tunics. This illustration is by the fabulous PVE.

During the talented gallery director’s bachelorette weekend her maid of honor gave us all a box of Govino glasses. The glasses are shatterproof, reusable, and make very sweet gifts! I will be using mine for drinking champagne at tailgates...they are a step up from my usual solo cups.

Another find that weekend was Ritter Sport Milk Chocolate with Cornflakes. This treat was in my welcome bag that bride-to-be had so graciously but together. The creaminess of the chocolate combined with the crunch of the cornflakes was a match made in taste bud heaven. I am a bit of a chocoholic and now I must try the Ritter Chocolate Peppermint.

PVE does great work. I'm a fan. Now in regards to chocolate, if you are going to cover a breakfast food in chocolate, it doesn't get any better than dark chocolate dipped bacon.
Don't argue, just go get some.

Please don't stop at peppermint, there are such amazing flavors out there. Try the yogurt, the cookie (keks) and the marzipan, they are delish!!

My husband's sister-in-law loves those Ritter bars. I send her a box of them when she was pregnant. If you ever want more, let me know, it's very easy to get over here.

I ve never heard of Govino glasses, but I already love them. They really do seem perfect for drinking champagne or wine at a tailgate/outdoor event. Def. a step up in class from the solo cup haha.

Those wine glasses are genius. I think I need some for some upcoming tailgates!

Personally I love stemless wine glasses and these are great for the beach! I did ruin mine in the dishwasher though.
