An early lesson in my first wine class was that when evaluating wines, personal preferences are irrelevant. You taste buds change over the yeas. You will find wines you loved for many years just do not hit the same notes they once did. What I like or would personally buy or drink does not matter when comparing wines to their background. All that should be considered when critiquing a wine, is how closely as they adhere to the characteristics that have been established for its variety and style. Right off the battle looking at these three wines, Kaiken Terroir Series Torrontes Montes Dry Farmed Alpha Cabernet and the Montes Dry Farmed Alpha Syrah, I immediately dismissed them because they look very dry. My personal tastes sit somewhere in the semi-dry mark.

My son has a pretty strict diet so ordering in was also out of the question. Luckily for me, I purchased some Smart Flour Frozen Classic Pizzas the other day at Wegmans…. [read more]
Ever since I was young I was infatuated with makeup. My mother never wore any which only grew my curiosity. Once I found Youtube Makeup tutorials I was hooked for life!

Why am I telling you all of this because if you have followed makeup for any amount of time you may have heard of Beauty Junkees makeup brushes and sponges. They have been featured all over the inter-webs including Youtube videos, Buzzfeed, and even Latina Style. Some of the things I personally love about this company? They are women-owned, have free shipping on any online order and they back their products 100%!!
For years I have colored, highlighted, flat ironed and really damaged my hair. Now that I am getting older I realize that was not the best thing to do because now the grey hairs are starting to take a lot more maintenance to hide. I do not mind getting old but I miss the days of my healthy long luscious locks shining in the sunlight.
I’ve recently found Goldwell Kerasilk hair care products and am really enjoying the positive effects they are having on my hair. I have been wanting to try out some new products since my hair has been looking a bit rubbish, if I am being honest.

This past week has been nothing but sickness in our household. I never realized just how sick little ones can get once their immune system has been compromised. It has been tons of fluids and home made dinners with plenty of left overs since my son is not up to eating much! You need to really be on your organization and storage game when this happens. The last thing you want to do is clean up food and kitchen messes along with your taking care of your loved one.

We love purchasing some of our favorite bubbly beverages to enjoy throughout the year. I was first introduced to all things Champagne from a friend of mine who calls them her life line! Personally, I was always stayed on the sweeter side of things and only experimented with wines. After discovering Prosecco I was hooked on bubbles in my drink!
