Welcome back to the latest edition of J’adore. In this series, I highlight products that I have either tried recently or want to try. I am always spotting things that I want to buy (although 90% of the time I am window shopping!) and am sharing them here with you.

Please note there are affiliate links in the post. In case you really like something and my sharing has persuaded you to buy it, I get a little treat which goes back into the blog.

Thermo Pot

thermo-pot-vacuum-food-flaskIn my efforts to lost weight, I am trying to bring my breakfast and lunch to the office. I don’t do it every day but I am trying. One thing I love is soup, particularly my husband’s homemade vegetable soup and the seafood soup we make with soba noodles. I have now found the perfect vessel from Black Blum to bring my soup. I am also thinking it would be great for the cream of wheat in the morning!

Ringly

RinglyWearables are all the rage now, there’s Fitbit and Apple Watch and Pebble and now Ringly. Ringly is, well a ring, that notifies you with 5 unique vibrations customized to vibrate when you want simply by programming it in their app. There are 5 colors and a special edition version, shown in the bottom right, which is what I bought myself for my birthday! Can’t wait to get mine, how about you? Would this be something you’d wear?

Try the World

try-the-worldLast J’adore I shared the Casuebox a subscription box service where all the items are socially conscious products for women. Now I am eying the food and beauty products from exotic locations all over the world. Paris, Rio, Tokyo? Oh yes, sign me up! I have been seeing Try the World boxes everywhere! My friend Esther from Local Adventurer just did a great review on the latest Venice themed box. I signed up to try one, can’t wait to see what’s in it and where I will be transported to.

Smitten Ice Cream Coins

Smitten-Ice-Cream
San Francisco Only:
One of the best ice cream shoppe’s in the city, Smitten Ice Cream, has adorable gift coins to give to your friends and loved ones for Valentine’s Day. Smitten also has a special holiday topping – rose syrup, much better than the typical bouquet of roses! I love their salted caramel, it is out of this world!

That’s it for this edition of J’adore, favorite finds from my online travels!

How about you? What are you currently adoring?

    Those rings look so cool! I’d be afraid that I’d snag them on everything though, mainly my hair. And if I get notifications I’d probably be tempted to check them all the time, haha. I’ve heard of Smitten before, but not those adorable coins! I think a trip up to the city is in order.
