6 Houseplants To De-Stress Your Home And Purify The Air

Beauty Brite Disclosure

For some reason, plants always catch my eye whether in public or in someone’s home. Since we moved into our own home, I love rearranging my plants, rotating them towards the sun, and even moving my plants to different rooms. I also enjoy keeping their foliage clean and dust free. I don’t use any products to keep their leaves shiny. If my houseplants are dusty or dirty, I just splash some water on them for a little shower.

This month, my son and I started our new chapter in a new home. Knowing we had to move, I wanted new mattresses and found tulo. I knew I wanted a memory foam mattress that was affordable, easy to set up, CertiPur-US certified, Made in the USA, and breathable!

Create A Healthy And Warm Living Space

My son and I moved back to California over a year ago and during that time, we’ve had a few fires throughout the state that devastated the cities and towns affected. The most destructive wildfire was the Camp Fire in Butte County, which is about 100 miles north of us. The Camp Fire affected our area with horrible air quality. We had smokey, grey, and orange skies for over a week. There were days when the smoke was at street level and it looked like fog!

I used to walk every morning during the week after putting my son on the bus. However, with the Camp Fire burning for weeks now in Northern California, our skies have been smokey, grey, and orange! It’s too unhealthy to be outside right now, so I’ve been trying to stay indoors as much as possible.

Instead, I’ve been using my oil diffuser, essential oils, and a salt lamp to help clean and purify the air. I also have several houseplants around the home, so they are helping to purify our air. Lastly, I just bought another air purifier to really keep our air clean and fresh.

It’s important to take time for wellness for your own wellbeing.

Celebrate the Season with these Special Holiday Wines

Celebrate the Season with these Special Holiday Wines

Beauty Brite Disclosure

The holiday season is officially here. It’s time to get ready to shop, cook, bake, wrap presents, decorate, entertain, and party hop. And let’s not forget the traffic and crowds, delayed flights, crazy weather, and even crazier family. Is your head spinning yet? Never fear because we’re making celebrating the season easier with our top picks for special holiday wines.

Special Holiday Wines – FitVine

There’s a lot of eating going on during the holidays. It’s a real calorie fest, especially when you include those holiday beverages. Enter FitVine and their selection of guilt-free wines.  With their proprietary extended fermentation process, FitVine creates flavor rich wines low in calories, sulfites, sugar, and carbs. Hence their slogan, “We crush grapes, you crush life.”

The brand was kind enough to send me two of their seasonal offerings; Limited Edition Holiday Red Blend and Prosecco. These special holiday wines are ideal for lovers of red and white, sweet and dry.

The Limited Edition Holiday Red features a blend of decadent black fruits, dark raspberry, and a touch of chocolate. It has a nice full body that isn’t too heavy or overpowering. It also only contains .01 grams of sugar, 120 calories, and 3.5 grams of carbs (based on 5 oz glass).

I find it to be very light and smooth, which is due to its ultra-refined tannins. FitVine’s Holiday Red is one of those unique reds you can drink by itself or pair with a variety of foods. It would make for a nice hostess gift, or as an offering at your holiday party, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or Christmas table.

Special Holiday Wines_FitVine Prosecco

If you’re looking for something a little sweeter or with some bubbly, you’ll love FitVine’s Prosecco. With its notes of apple, pear, citrus, and tropical flowers, this Prosecco has a light, clean, and refreshing flavor. It also is comes in at 92 calories, .7 grams of sugar and 3.0 grams of carbs (based on 5 oz glass).

As you can see by my picture, I added some strawberries to my flute glass for added flavor and color. You could also add your own berry of choice or perhaps a few slices of pear or apple to make it feel even more festive. Prosecco is a great option to champagne. It works well as a dessert wine, one its own, or as a nice complement to your holiday brunch offerings. Can someone say, Holiday Bellini or Mimosa?

Give Back with Cashmere Black

Next up we have a wine whose name and label caught my eye. Am I the only one who picks wines simply based on the label design, description or even the wine name? In the case of Cline Cellars Cashmere Black, it was hard to resist all of the above. Not to mention, I’m a huge fan of blends.

Special Holiday Wines_Cashmere Black

What truly garnered my attention the most, besides the blend of varietals, was the fact that Cline Cellars is a supporter of important causes. To date, they have donated over $330k to charitable organizations. I was also pleased to learn that this winery has been sustainably farmed and family owned since 1982. It’s nice knowing the bottle I’m enjoying was made without causing damage to the environment where the grapes are grown.

You can truly taste their efforts in Cashmere Black. As far as holiday wines go, Cashmere Black is the ideal. Its full-bodied flavor comes from a blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Mourvedre, Carignane, and Alicante Bouschet. It’s like drinking a rich mashup of blueberry, plum, violet, cherry, vanilla, and coffee, with an oaky finish. Basically, Cashmere Black is heaven in a glass. It’s the perfect end to a long day of holiday shopping, or the quintessential beverage to enjoy alongside your holiday turkey with all the trimmings.

So when it comes time to choose your special holiday wines, consider FitVine’s Holiday Red Blend and Prosecco, as well as  Cashmere Black from Cline Cellars. They’ll make you want to clink your glasses in celebration of their rich flavor, low calories, and sustainable creation.

What is your favorite holiday drink? Which special holiday wines would you want to try?
