#WineStudio: New Year, New Jersey

Raise your hand if you’ve made a joke about New Jersey sometime in recent memory. I cannot be the only one, I’m sure. The Real Housewives franchise, Jersey Shore, and pretty much any other mainstream thing to do with the state has cemented this. It might not be okay, but it’s just how it is. So what does Jersey have to offer the world of wine? Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Sometimes All You Need is a Glass

I’ve been posting Thirsty Thursday posts for a while on this blog. On a day off, my mind conjures up many kinds of mixed drinks, from simple to complex. Sometimes they’re boozier and other times they are sweet enough to enjoy on a beach. However, there are times when all I want to do is open a bottle and pour something directly into a glass. This normally results in my drinking some wine. When I don’t want that, Hum botanical spirit comes in. Continue reading

Is the Left Coast the Best Coast?

I am an East Coast girl at heart. I went to the opposite coast once, and I was not into it. There was too much traffic, too many people on juice cleanses, and way too many people trying to become actors or models. I am much more comfortable on my coast where people are always rushing around, drinking coffee, and layering up once December hits. Continue reading

Foodie Fashion: Being a Boss with Lipgloss

I have a few vices. Wine, food, and ice cream are just a few of them. However, I’ve also got a soft spot for lipsticks, lip stains, and lip glosses. In an effort to be a better person, I try to make these vices as healthy as possible. Continue reading

#WineStudio: Getting Through the Day with Some Rosé

While the dog days of summer are behind us, the last thing most drinkers are now thinking of is rosé. Rosé, frosé, and pretty much anything in a shade of millennial pink are all associated with the months between April and August. Why drink it any other time of year? Even though we had our #WineStudio session in June, I held off until September for this reason. Rosé is good for just about any day. I’m making my case here. Continue reading

#WineStudio: Being a Drinker with Meeker

At the end of the day, I want a wine that I enjoy. I think everyone does. Even those people out there stocked up on YellowTail in case there is ever a wine shortage in the world. This is the common thread that brings all wine drinkers together. No one goes out thinking they want to try a crummy wine or spend money on something awful. However, there are also some bottles that clearly have more thought and effort put into them than others. 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
