J’adore #52

It's back! I have really missed doing this series and finally had time to put together recent finds. For those of you unfamiliar with the J'adore, it is my series where I share things that have caught my eye during my internet travels as well as products that have crossed my path in real life.

For instance, the “kind” folks at KIND sent me over some samples of the new flavors of their bars: Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Chili Almond. They arrived just in time for my trip to New York and Boston last week. Truly nine times out of ten you will find a bar (often times a Clif Bar or LUNA Bar) in my carry-on.

I pick them up all the time when I am out and about because they are one of the few bars that I like, and I have tried a lot of bars! They are perfect for holding me over on a flight so I don't have to eat yucky airplane food. Or when I have to skip lunch because of my schedule.

As for the KIND bars, I love the Cranberry Almond + Antioxidants, but both of these new ones are in stiff competition for the top slot!


Speaking of travel, I love these customizable bag tags from SwaggerTag that can completely reflect your personality! I could do Misadventure with Andi ones, French-themed ones, whatever and truly make the tags on my luggage, my own. More fun, more identifiable!


While on the road this past week I had the opportunity to read Foodie Top 100 Restaurants: Worldwide, probably not the best thing to read when your schedule dictates deli sandwiches and food on the go. I cannot tell you how much a tease it was to read this book while in New York, knowing there were amazing restaurants within reach!

The book is loaded with worthy restaurants from all over the world and I have bookmarked all the Kyoto ones to try to get into while I am there in November!


I have always wanted to host a murder mystery party and my treasure hunt experience at the Louvre only added to the desire to do an interactive evening. Of course, if I was going to host it then my francophile nature dictates that it must be French-themed in some way, shape, or form!

I found the one I would do: Murder at the Café de Résistance, bien sûr! This particular version comes out of London from the Murder Mystery Store, but can be purchased via a download so you don't have to worry about shipping, although you can also buy the boxed version as well. Either way, it looks like so much fun!


I am completely enamored with Foldable. Me! I have so many ideas running through my head of how I would use these! Match-making at a party or network event. Team-building. Endless possibilities. I totally want to do mine to see how it turns out!

I have shared bento boxes before, I am kind of a sucker for them, I am worried about what will happen when I go to Japan again in November! There is something wicked and hilarious about eating out of this piggie one from Bentooo!


That’s it for this edition of J’adore, a few of my recent favorite finds as I travel the web!

How about you? What are you currently adoring?

    I first had a KIND bar at Starbucks and although I am not one for processed food, I have to say it was good, and I liked the lack of of crap in it. If I have to have a bar now, I always go for the KIND and always keep a few stashed in my Flee bag for my always-hungry hubby.

    I also love Kind bars as well as my two granddaughters (age 7 and 9). We all have our favorites like anything blueberry for the youngest girl and the oldest girl and I share equally our love of the Apple Cinnamon. We also love the maple clusters; have you tried those? I have not seen the maple glazed pecan before, do you purchase that at Starbucks? My Starbucks only seems to carry the blueberry or the apple cinnamon.

  5. I would like to try those kind bars it looks delicious.

  6. the chocolate and sea salt kinds are my fave
