A Day in My Life: Greenville, South Carolina

Hello followers! I am currently typing to you from the mountains of South Carolina. I also am typing this on my phone, so hopefully the post is easy to read on a computer... (If not, I'll be sure to fix it when I get back to my laptop!)
Yesterday I got to take advantage of a little retail therapy in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. I thought I might show y'all what I got!
First off I want to let you know that I am a real foodie. If I'm out if town, it's guaranteed that I'll buy food at some point. So, I just had to stop in Greenville Jerky & Vine, a specialty shop for all kinds of jerky and wine. They had so many flavors and meats to choose from, along with wine and various local foods. I love curry, so I went with Lawless Jerky's Japanese Curry beef jerky. And man, is it good. I will have to ration this bag for sure. (
Next is Poppington's Gourmet Popcorn. Look how cute it is! Paired with the scents that were coming out of their shop, how could I resist? These little sample baggies were only a dollar, and great for tasting all the flavors or bringing home to your friends from your trip. They make the popcorn right in the shop, and it's a feast for the eyes as well as your mouth. (
The last food item I bought was loose leaf tea from The Spice & Tea Exchange. We have one of these shops in my hometown, but I can't help but stop in. I love loose tea and spices and salts in jars. I also bought a tea strainer so I could have some tea during my trip. I purchased Rose Mint, Pear Caramel, and Ginger Turmeric. They are white/green, black, and herbal teas and they smell amazing. I can't wait to taste them. (
Lastly, I bought these leather rings from Ten Thousand Villages. They are a unique shop that sells handmade items from around the world. Most items have a tag that say where they were made. I went for these lovely leather rings. They are made of a thin, rigid leather and decorated with bright patterns. I bought an extra one for a friend of mine who has a metal allergy. They are super cute and go with the whole bohemian look that is in right now. (

And that's everything I got from lovely Greenville, South Carolina! Thanks for reading!
