It’s not hard to get really caught up in the fast-paced life that we all seem to be living these days. Chilling out can seem like an unaffordable luxury when compared to all that we have to get done on any given day of the week. But, as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned that relaxation isn’t something to relegate to the occasional stolen moment. It’s something we should all attempt to work into our everyday lives, even if we need to actually schedule it in our calendars.

Rest and relaxation doesn’t need to be a big production or take a lot of time to prepare for, either. Small changes to many areas of our daily routines can bring big benefits. Here’s how I’ve added two simple products from Culturelle® and Mind Fuel Nest to my daily routine to promote personal wellness on a small scale…. [read more]

Adventures in Wine Making

Adventures in Wine Making

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 Red, white, sweet or dry, no matter the wine, I’ll try a glass. Even my late recuse puppy had a pension for wine. I had to be very careful where I left my glass when she was around. I still laugh when I think about the first time I discovered she was a wino. What I like most about wine is trying different blends from different countries because you never know what you might discover. When I was offered the chance to try my hand at home winemaking I knew it was an adventure I couldn’t pass up.

Tasting Dry Wines With A Sweet Palette

Tasting Dry Wines With A Sweet Palette

Beauty Brite Disclosure

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.

Start Your Day With Better Coffee - Hope Bridges Coffee

If you’ve read any of my previous posts, then you’ll know that I’m a certified coffee addict. My husband and I call it our “adulting” fuel and we aren’t ashamed to say that we consume large quantities of it.

One indulgence we’ve really come to enjoy is drinking really good coffee. We love getting freshly ground beans from the Italian market by our home and making a fragrant brew that fills up our entire house with a great aroma…. [read more]

Add A Colorful Keurig To Your Countertop

Add A Colorful Keurig To Your Countertop

Beauty Brite Disclosure

We received our first Keurig almost 4 years ago. When we were introduced to Keurig, it literally turned our world upside down. My husband was and still is a coffee drinker. He would make a full pot of coffee over and over again throughout the day. At the time, I was not much of a coffee drinker, except ice coffee. However, when Keurig entered our lives, I started drinking hot coffee because it was so easy for me to brew my own cup with the touch of a button.
