Beans N’ Leaves

I wanted to do an official post about my box from Beans N’ Leaves. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my awkward unboxing on my story where I shared everything that came in my Beans N’ Leaves box (when I listened to it I was like, is that really my voice?), so weird! Anyways, Beans N’ Leaves is a new subscription box for coffee and tea lovers. It is like the best thing I have ever heard of and I was fortunate enough to try them out! I am working on liking tea more, it has to be sweet for me, so of course I chose a coffee box.

When it arrived I was so excited. I was surprised to see the sizes of the bags of coffee beans, they were bigger than I expected so it will be nice to be able to make more than one cup of coffee with them. My box came with four different bags of coffee and let me tell you, they all smell so good! My favorite is the one from Dark Horse Coffee Roasters. The part of this package that made me want to open it right away, “Tastes like dark chocolate, tangerine, and brown sugar,” um YUM! I opened the bag and took a deep breath, I almost wanted to eat one of the beans right then and there it smelled so good. I think I may be in love.

The second bag I got is from Lanna Coffee Co. The description of this roast is, “A bright roast with crisp floral notes, bourbon sweetness and a clean velvety finish {highest caffeine content}”. Yes hello, as soon as I read that last bit I knew I needed to try it, the more caffeine the better right? This one smells like heaven too, I almost feel like I get energy just from inhaling its wonderful aroma.

Third and fourth are two different coffees from Copa-Vida: GO. and ENJOY. GO. is rich while ENJOY. is a medium roast. Both smell darker than the other two bags but still oh so good. I like the cute little bags they came in.

Lastly my box also came with a few goodies. The first was an organic nutrition bar called Simple Squares in Cinna-Clove. It is gluten free, certified paleo, and I can pronounce every ingredient in it. Second was Just Panela sugar packets. This cane sugar is “hand cut, hand kettled, hand crafted. 100% unprocessed, unrefined and organic”. Third were these amazing coffee candies in the flavors: coffee, coffee with cream, and cinnamon coffee. Last is the cutest little coffee scooper ever! One scoop measures one tbsp. of coffee. Now I am official, I have a scooper and can stop using the plastic scoop that comes with my generic, boring, grocery store bought coffee.

This box is truly amazing. Coffee not only is everything, but it is a social aspect of our daily lives. This is a way to bring variety and spice things up in your own kitchen. I also think it is something impressive to have when guests are over. I always think my friends with their cool, different coffees are so cultured for having a different brand than the ones we see everyday at the grocery store. This is a conversation starter! A Beans N’ Leaves box would also make a great gift to give so if you need an idea for someone for Christmas this is a good one.

Check out the Beans N’ Leaves site here and their Instagram here! I also have to add that the founder and co-founder are truly amazing people (yes I may know them =]), but people who are passionate put real work, effort, and love into their work and that is what they are doing in this company. They have created a quality product that exceeds your standards. Thanks you two! xoxo

Jord Wood Watches

I love wearing watches, not only for the obvious reason to tell time, but because they make a statement. Watches can be a vital part of a look, the part that stands out. I prefer the ones that stand out a bit, whether they be rose gold, have some bling around the face, or two toned, they are usually eye catching and I tend to get a lot of compliments. This is a great conversation starter with really anyone, it is something simple to bond over. The three watches I have are pretty and shiny, but common you could say. I still love them, but I see them around often.

I just recently got a new addition and my wishes for a unique watch have been granted! Check it out, it’s a WOOD watch from Jord! I didn’t even know you could make a watch out of wood, how cool! It looks so nice and classy, and just the fact that it is wood, when other people see it they have to ask about it. Mine is called the Frankie. I love a watch with a large face which is why I chose this style, but they have tons of other styles and color tones as well for men and women. I found these at the right time because I am in desperate need of Christmas present ideas. Jord even has custom engraving on their site! Personalized gifts can be the best, especially for family.
