#WineStudio: The Endlessness of Breathless Wines

During one recent #WineStudio, we dove deep with Breathless Sparkling Wines, where three sisters and their winemaker, Penny Gadd-Coster, dedicate themselves to make sparkling wine in the traditional method. Not only is this a women-owned winery, the label also features a woman who is meant to represent the sisters’ mother Martha. Family owned and led by women, I can’t think of a better team to represent everything that has driven 2018 forward. Continue reading

Foodie Fashion: A Cupcake for Every Day

There aren’t many things I love about working in the retail industry. People return items they purchased ten years ago and wore down until it was totally unrecognizable; some get mad when you don’t say hello immediately; some get mad when you say hello. The list goes on. However, I will say that working in retail has turned me into a shopper for better or for worse. I won’t blow an entire paycheck on a new pair of shoes, but I have learned that a lot more people recognize someone’s sense of style than I previously thought. Continue reading

Back to School and Feelin’ Cool

A few of you may know this, but I am in the process of applying to law school. Nerve-wracking, stressful, and exciting are all words that come to mind as I reflect on going through the application process. The other thing that comes up is that it also costs money. Between the holidays, applying, and actually trying to save some finances to pay for it, my wine habit has taken a hit. I am fortunate enough to receive samples, but pricey bottles that I want to try stay out of my shopping cart now. Continue reading

Food with the City of Lights

So, the desire to consume everything from An American in Paris to French guide books when I was younger has grown into even more of a drive to get my hands on anything to do with the city. Recently, I finished The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs by Elaine Sciolino, who has lived the life of which I dream. Continue reading

Foodie Fashion: Watermelon for All Year Round

If there is one thing that I own too many of, it’s purses. What started out as one purse occasionally gifted at Christmas when I was maybe twelve or thirteen has expanded out to take up two shelves in my closet.  Continue reading

Food with Padma Lakshmi

In an effort to watch less TV and feel marginally more intellectual, a few of my friends and I started a book club. Once every month or so we get together after work, order some drinks, and talk about a book. We’ve done everything from the more highbrow All the Light We Cannot See to a one called Retail Hell. I can relate to the latter more than I would care to admit. Falling somewhere in the middle is Padma Lakshmi’s relatively new book. Continue reading
