One of my lovely fans just told me that today is National Drink Wine Day! What a wonderful surprise!
Should I drink red or white wine tonight?
What are you drinking? Cheers!
It’s so true, isn’t it?
Sipping on a glass of wine seems to make all of the day’s stresses slowly drift away. Now add a good book or a bubble bath and the entire world melts away! Just being with yourself in that moment instantly calms you down. Studies have shown that just taking a few minutes to yourself each day will greatly improve your state of mind.
Lay down on a couch (or in a tub!) and just breathe!
Ahhhh… That sounds nice doesn’t it?
Add to the zen by watching this video below of my absolute DREAM duct tape!
Wine straight from Italy’s countryside!! Wow!!
Talk about relaxation…
What’s your favorite or dream duct tape? Comment and tell us!
If your significant other prefers beer to wine and you prefer wine, well, now you know for sure you are always right. So the “huh?” questions and “honey, can you throw me another one” versus the pop of the cork and the slow glunk glunk of wine hitting the glass and what happens to the brain after, well, there is a difference.
Based upon a recent study:
“When the subjects were given an IQ test, wine drinkers consistently scored higher IQs than their counterpart beer drinkers. The average difference of IQ between wine and beer drinkers was 18 points.”
– Wikipedia, under “Health Effects of Wine”
So pop that cork and feel good about it! Try our Ravishing Red Wine or our Witty White Wine!
And go ahead and show off your wine knowledge using our hand-painted Wine Connoisseur Wine Glass!
It’s Memorial Day Weekend – and who doesn’t love a three-day reason to celebrate? The folks at Liberty Creek Vineyards have launched a special program just in time to help us honor the real reason behind Memorial Day and to support the troops. Their “Tunes for Troops” program is bringing music downloads to service men and women overseas via care packages from Operation Gratitude.
For more information, just go to their website: www.libertycreekwine.com. Cheers – and Happy Memorial Day! ~ Lolita
For me, opening up a bottle of wine is part of the ritual – and I just love cork. I know some really good wines now come with synthetic stoppers or twist offs (and in boxes, but that’s another post for another day!). But these just leave me longing for real cork – the kind you can sink your nail into.
Cork can tell you a lot:
While I’m all for new technology, sometimes the classic is still the best. Cork was first used as a stopper by the Ancient Egyptians – and today, that is still the most common use for cork. I hope that continues. Cheers to the cork!
PS – I found this cute “cork wine glass” at Etsy.
