A New Reusable Bag That Is Stylish & Eco

Rifle Paper Co Has A Card For You

Rifle Paper Co Has A Card For You

There is no question about where you can find a greeting card; you can go just about anywhere to purchase a greeting card for almost any occasion. However, do the words inside the card reflect how you feel about that particular person or moment, probably not. Sometimes we pick a card with random words just because its the easy thing to do, but at Rifle Paper Company located in Winter Park, FL they have changed things up a bit.

The stationery and lifestyle brand designs beautiful greeting cards without any inside words purposely so you can add your message because that is what actual stationery is and always was many decades ago when composing a letter to anyone was a norm. The feeling of retrieving something special via postal mail has been lost to email. Sure, you could go to a local supermarket, and purchase a greeting card, but I guarantee you the design will not be as pristine as Rifle Paper Co cards. There is something special about every single designed card by their team of designers.

Card design is not the only exciting fact about Rifle Paper Co, but we also love that all cards are designed in the U.S. and also printed in the United States. Most greeting card brands print their cards in foreign countries only to be shipped back to the United States which is not a sustainable practice and could negatively impact our ecosystem. I highly recommend purchasing from Rifle Paper Co just because its the better brand to go with regarding supporting a company that is genuinely homegrown and a fantastic business that started from scratch.

Don’t hesitate to visit the brand’s headquarters, inside is a beautifully designed shop with plenty of modern vintage elements. My favorite part of the shop is the famed wall of cards. There is no doubt about it you will be mesmerized by all the lavish card designs. Plus, if you are looking for something unique other than a card you will be in luck as the stationery company also sell stylish pencils, art prints, cell phone cases, aprons, and other lifestyle products that will make everyday life fun and easy going. If you don’t live in the Orlando area, you can find Rifle Paper Co products online at riflepaperco.com

The Greenery Creamery

The Greenery Creamery

There is a scoop for everyone at downtown Orlando’s new ice cream boutique located in the retail plaza of the 420 east complex on church st. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful modern decor and the stylish ice cream cone light fixtures hanging from the ceiling. The ice cream joint sets itself apart from any other place in Orlando by offering delicious vegan options such as my favorite the black ask coconut which I like to add vegan sprinkles for a little added touch. There are also sophisticated dairy versions that include something special such as rose wine, but of course, flavors are subject to change depending upon availability.

All ice cream produced at the greenery creamery is handmade in small batches for quality control. What I love the most about the Greenery Creamery ingredients are locally sourced and organic when possible including ice cream’s star substance milk from Florida grass-fed cows. Now that is something I’ve never heard of an ice cream establishment putting into place. Want to try a flavor? Sure, there are no plastic spoons here for sampling just metal spoons. The sustainability practices at the greenery creamery are above and beyond what is expected. You can rest assured you will be consuming nothing but the very best. There are so many reasons why you have to check out the Greenery Creamery for yourself and experience the luxury of pure premium quality ice cream.

1. Inspiralize Everything | Ali Maffucci

 

Spiralized produce is such a brilliant substitute for pasta. Yes, I know it’s not the same, but it’s much healthier. In my opinion, spiralized vegetables are more refreshing and tasty. Inspiralze Everything is literally a guide on how to spiralize almost anything from apples to zucchini. If spiralized produce is new to you or you are not comfortable yet, this is the book for you.

Walking in the aisles of numerous supermarkets, you will soon encounter the term sprouted. Some consumers love sprouted foods and some consumers not so much, but if you love sprouted food or interested at all this is the guide to read.
