When I’m ready to splurge, this is where I’m heading… [Nahui Ollin Runway Handbag: Photo Courtesy of Jute and Jackfruit] This handbag from Jute & Jackfruit was made from recycled model pictures from runway shoots and it was hand woven by indigenous Mayan men and women.

There are a lot of cafes and bakeries in my area, and I love that. They’ve got fresh food, unique selections and best of all, an abundance of coffee. Each Spring when the weather begins to get warm and then stays warm throughout the summer, one of my favorite things to order is iced coffee. […]
