MVM Berber Spiced Wild Harvest Shiitake $25

I’ve got to let you in on a secret. I don’t like mushrooms. I avoid them often as much as possible. However, when I’m at a food tasting event, such as Fresh Off The Farm, I’m willing to give things a little nibble. Because, as I used to say when I was a kid, “Maybe my taste buds will grow up” and I’ll eventually like them. This was the case with MVM’s Berber Spiced Wild Shiitakes Mushrooms. I really enjoyed the spice to them.

CB Stark’s Classic Island Tie Bracelet starting at $125

Everyone loves these bracelets. I’ve been wearing the same one for years. I know some people who wear them until the cord breaks. The best part? you get to choose the color of the cord and can change it out every time you visit the island if you so wanted.

Norton Point Whitecap Swell Sunglasses Made $99

I first discovered this brand the year they launched in 2015. They had one goal in mind to make a pair of sunglasses from ocean plastic and plant based materials. Man did they succeed! I have two pairs of these glasses – their original Tortoiseshell sunglasses and theses, the Whitecap Swells. Give someone the gift of style, and help reduce ocean plastic while you’re at it.
