Also, it's Trendy Tuesday time! What could be more fun?
Since we're all back at school and work, it's a little hard to satisfy that Wanderlust.
Unless, of course, you're studying abroad. In which case, hats off to you!
But if you can't go abroad, then being inspired by our global neighbors is one of the next best things, right?
This week, some international fashionistas have caught my eye - starting with the gorgeous Piia from Tallinn, Estonia!
For an international gustatory treat, there's Pacari Chocolate, organic vegan chocolate from Ecuador!
Pacari Chocolate is a socially responsible, sustainable oriented chocolate company making premium chocolate from 100% organic ingredients. I tried their 100% cacao raw chocolate bar and their Dark chocolate covered Golden Berries.
The ingredient lists for all of their chocolates (they also make several different chocolate bars, chocolate covered berries, and cocoa-cacao beans) are comprised of just a few quality ingredients.
I really enjoyed the raw dark chocolate bar. If you want pure dark chocolate, this is it. It's not quite as creamy as other chocolate bars, as is expected given the 100% cacao content, but it still is somewhat creamy and certainly not brittle.
It's always so disappointing when chocolate is brittle (and cheap bars can start tasting brittle at around 50% cacao content) so the smoothness of the chocolate was a pleasant discovery.

What's the last nice thing you did to treat yourself?
