Outlets of Little Rock opens today [review]

IMG_1899Last night I was lucky enough to shop at the new Outlets of Little Rock preview event. Let me tell you — I am thrilled that this mall is finally open! And it did not disappoint. They have a wonderful selection of stores from kid’s clothing to beef jerky. Who could ask for more?!?!

Here are some of the highlights:

IMG_1906The Beef Jerky Outlet: I almost didn’t go in this store, cheap but I am so glad that I did! Not only do they have a fantastic beef jerky section with all imaginable varieties, physician they have flavored popcorn, here jams, spices, sauces and more. I sampled the peanut butter and chocolate popcorn. So good. IMG_1908 The preview event last night benefited local charities. There was music and entertainment, as well as local food merchants handing out samples. Shout out to Breitweiser’s Meat Market & Deli in Benton, AR, for the delicious smoked chicken salad. IMG_1902IMG_1905Another interesting store at the Outlets of Little Rock is Sweet Candy & Gifts. It’s like an old-fashion candy store, but they have some international and local candies too. Best of all, a portion of all sales at Sweet goes to Women Lead Arkansas organization. IMG_1909There are plenty of great shopping opportunities at Outlets of Little Rock like Gymboree, Restoration Hardware, and Gap. (I dropped a load of cash at Gap last night.) IMG_1910IMG_1912And when you need to take a break, Outlets of Little Rock has several comfy seating areas. So grab a cup of TCBY and rest your feet. You’ll need your energy to get to all the stores.

Here is the schedule for the Grand Opening weekend. Carson Kressley is hosting a fashion show tomorrow afternoon. That should be a hoot! There is a Kids Day on Sunday. And best of all, there are great sales and deals all weekend long! So please check it out.

Shop for a Cause

I received a complementary copy of The Fire Driven Life for review purposes. However, and all opinions stated here are my own.

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, shop you know that I love to cook and try healthy new recipes. I received a review copy of Vanessa Chamberlin’s new book The Fire Driven Life and was quickly drawn in by the beautiful photography and easy to follow flow of the book. IMG_0853Food is more than just fuel to Vanessa. She says, gastritis “…I began to see every healthy meal as a statement of self-love. Simply put, I recognized that I loved myself enough to pursue the highest level of self-care. This was a life-changing revelation for me.” Vanessa believes that nutrition is the foundation of well-being. She calls her food philosophy the PlantFire diet – every healthy meal and snack reinforces your love for yourself and that “from there, you can continue to strengthen and build on this new foundation in other aspects of your life.” FullSizeRender(1)The book is organized well and contains not only details on her vegan eating plan, but guidance on food shopping, exercise, stress management and more. It’s a well-rounded lifestyle plan.

Since I eat hummus almost every day, I made the Red Roasted Pepper Hummus. It was easy (whipped it up in my Vitamix) and delicious. IMG_0846Even though I will probably NEVER be a vegan, there are several other recipes in the book that I look forward to trying out — especially the Holiday Brussels Sprouts made with cranberries and walnuts.

So if you are looking for a new vegan cookbook or lifestyle plan, I suggest you check out The Fire Driven Life. (link www.VanessaChamberlin.com)

I love coffee. And now I love Airship Coffee.

IMG_9872Airship Coffee is a quality-focused, nurse artisan coffee roaster located in Bentonville, Arkansas, and they were one of the sponsors at Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged last weekend. Not only is their coffee delicious, but the mission of the company is something I want to support. From their website:

Airship Coffee was founded on the idea that we could improve lives by helping farmers improve their coffee quality and by creating market access through direct trade relationships.  Whether on the farm or in the café, we believe that education is the key to improving coffee, and better coffee means better livelihoods for everyone involved with its creation.  Our relationships with growers provide unique opportunities to influence quality determinants on the farm. 

2013-09-07 10.38.20It’s so refreshing to meet people who are not just after another buck, but who truly want to create a great product and help others along the way. Bravo, Airship.
