Chasing Paper (Goods)

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

I’m a paper person. I was going to say that I’m a paper person because I believe in good paper goods (i.e. cards and stationery), but thinking about paper on a higher level, I love paper. I love reading a good paperback book, paper magazine, writing my to do list on paper - I’m trees worst enemy.

Before I derailed there, I was going to say that recently I purchased a lot of cards. From Mother’s Day to Father’s Day to Birthdays, I’ve been keeping Hallmark (or in my case Kards Unlimited - SHOP LOCAL!) in business.

I’m always looking for something unique when it comes to cards. Something that reminds me of the person receiving the paper product. I recently stumbled upon Julie Ann Art and it was love at first sight. Her cards are witty and hilarious and perfect for my unique friends and family. So if you are in the market for a good card, check this chick out on Etsy!

I'll Take a Six Pack of Cab: Wine In A Can

Thursday, June 18, 2015

I’ve never been one to discriminate boxed wine. It’s not below me to tap the bag. With that being said, there is a new wine trend that I can fully get behind - canned wine.

Here are some other wine in a can options.Warning - I haven’t tried these yet because PA liquor laws are dumb and we are always the last to get cool things. If you’ve tried one of these, I’d love to hear about it!

2. Underwood: Perfect for a House of Cards binge watching party!

3. Barokes Wine: From Australia, this company gets points for securing the website Barokes offers a number of wine-in-a-can options like the slim bottles in Chardonnay, Cabernet Shiraz, Bubbly Rose, Bubbly Cabernet Shiraz, Bubbly Chardonnay, the Lovers Mixes Case and a premium case.
