Finally, a Reusable Cup You Can Carry
An estimated 500 billion disposable cups are thrown away globally each year, few which are recycled. I was thrilled to discover Stojo (stojo.co, from $14.99), a new collapsible cup that fits easily into a purse or pocket, making it easy to begin reducing - potentially eliminating - my use of to-go cups at home and while on the road.
After two months of testing, I never leave home without it! I chose the Stojo Biggie because it holds up to 20oz, includes a foldable straw for cold drinks, and comes in a gorgeous palette of pastel and neutral colors.
Macaron-Ice Cream Sandwiches
How have I missed this epic combination of my two favorite desserts? If you haven’t heard either, macaron-ice cream sandwiches are deliciously real and you should seek one out immediately.
Unique flavor combos can be found in shops all over the world, like London's Yolkin, MILK in LA, or MIMA in Barcelona. Many of the Parisian boutiques well known for macarons will add these sandwich creations in warmer months. Or if you’re crafty in the kitchen, create your own with this recipe from Tasty.
