Although I’m no wine connoisseur, I pride myself in not tolerating wine from a bag or anything labeled “Moscato”. I paired my sippings with some pan fried sole and quinoa, but I think it would have gone better with some pasta or steak. I also wish I would’ve had some cheese to eat with it before dinner (hello Havarti), but I guess we’ll do that next time. Overall, if you don’t mind waiting a few days for your wine to get delivered, I totally recommend it.
P.S. Peep my adorable custom wine glass given to me by my best friend. Don’t you love it?
Keep drinking (unless you’re an alcoholic, then like, don’t),
Coffee, wine, and sunshine. Just a few things I need to get through the weeks. Like a lot of you, I can’t survive a day without a cup of coffee in the morning. I know, I know, coffee isn’t the best source of energy, but I can’t seem to make the switch to matcha yet. My cute coffee mugs help me get through the mornings (and I guess the caffeine does, too) & they make for a #trendy picture. I also drink my coffee black, which makes me a little more of a bad b*tch (kidding…ish), & cuts out a ton of unnecessary calories. Life hack?
And wine? Yes, please. What helps you relax after a stressful day of school and work? Wine. What goes great with popcorn and a good movie? Wine. What helps you feel better after you fail an exam you studied so hard for (ok fine, only the night before)? Wine. You can’t ever go wrong, and there are so many different varieties to bless your pallet with.
This summer’s fad: Rosé. You see it everywhere. If you follow @thefatjewish and @babewalker on Instagram, you’re definitely familiar with the Rosé empire they’ve built the past few years. I also stumbled upon a website that delivers unique (and extremely trendy) bottles of wine right to your doorstep, Winc. I tried it out for myself and was totally hooked. Choose from whites, reds, rosés, and a ton of different blends. I have my bottle of Summer Water Rosé waiting in my fridge for the perfect occasion, so I’ll keep you guys posted on how it tastes.
Speaking of summer, let’s talk about the big star in the sky. As a resident of the sunny Sunshine State, Vitamin D is a must. The beautiful beaches of Miami, Fl, or your friend’s pool that might as well be a part of a hotel on the beach, are great ways to get outdoors and soak up some rays. If you don’t have any friends who have pools, go make some. Summertime is all about getting a bomb tan and spending time outside. Don’t forget to lather up in some SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays- I’m currently paying the price of a bad sunburn. No really, I look like a tomato.
Stay hydrated during these major heat waves (and obviously rock a cute pair of sunnies)! Literally everything goes wrong once you’re dehydrated. Everything. Trust me, I’m almost a nurse.
Have a kick ass day,
