Editor's Picks: Gift-Worthy Perfumes

A fragrance is such a great gift for a special someone. It's substantial but not too expensive, depending on which kind. And the good ones come in such pretty bottles.For an incredibly unique perfume, Immortal Perfumes pictured above, offers a combination of beautiful scents and rich, romantic history.

My personal go-to fragrances tend to be the Victoria's Secret perfumes. Scents like Sexy Little Things Noir by Victoria's Secret come in such beautiful packaging, though I'm partial to the scent of VS Pink and VS Sheer Love.


A fragrance can serve as a sentimental gift. With scents like Lollia In Love, Lolliamakes for a very sweet gift. I love the floral prints and unique packaging for their other items like bath soap and lotion. If it isn't being given as a romantic gift, for example, a lotion and bath soap set is much more suitable. For a nice sampling of the different scents, try this Lollia Little Luxe Gift Set.

Black Bean Veggie Burgers


Black bean burgers are such a healthy option to traditional hamburgers. They're extremely low fat, low-calorie; yet black beans are high in fiber, protein, and iron, and also have a good amount of Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, and Vitamin B-6. There are so many health benefits to black beans.

Mine black bean veggie burger uses a basic recipe. I don't like my black bean burgers full of veggies, but you can certainly add corn or diced onion and peppers. Try other spicy flavors like hot sauce or teriyaki sauce. I LOVE to put the Worcestershire sauce and seasoned salt in, because it really gives the black bean burger a traditional burger taste, if you're used to those flavors in your beef burgers that is.

INGREDIENTS
  • 16oz canned and drained black beans or pre-soaked and cooked dry black beans
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbs ground cumin (optional)
  • 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Prepare beans according to directions on bag. Let cool and use a potato masher or food processor to lightly mash the beans. You don't want them completely pureed. Leave some chunks.
  2. Add everything other than the eggs, so you can adjust the spices to taste. The eggs and bread crumbs help with texture and help the patties stay together, though you can get away without them if you prefer, especially if you bake them. If you want to bake them, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Add the eggs last then form into patties. If you have time, freeze them before cooking to help them keep their shape better.
  4. Form into patties and either bake for about 20 minutes or fry in a pan over medium heat over cooking oil for about 8-10 minutes per side.

  1. I'd have to pass on this, admittedly. The taste of any kind of bean tends to be very unappealing to me personally...

    1. I used to hate beans, then it was one of those flavors I suddenly started to like. I'm surprised my kids love them.

  2. This sounds good! I don't eat much meat anymore, and black beans are my favorite beans!
