    Use WINEWISK, RELEASE YOUR WINE’S FULL POTENTIAL

    Every wine enthusiast knows the best way to enjoy wine is to aerate it first. The process of adding air to wine speeds up the aging process, unlocking flavors and aromas. WINEWISK™ is eliminating the wait with a new product. The aerator is designed to attach to the rim of your glass instead. Swirl the wine, make bubbles, and release the wine’s full potential.

    With WINEWISK wine aerator, Aerate wine by the glass, all you need to do is swirl. Taste the difference in you wine before and after. Smell and taste like a pro, but without the pressure. Leave it on your glass while you drink. When you’re done simply rinse for next time.

    THE BEFORE & AFTER EFFECT

    When using WINEWISK wine aerator take a few sips first and get an idea of what the wine is like. Once you feel comfortable start swirling and aerate your wine. By tasting wine this way you get a before and after effect. You get to compare what the wine was like first, and what the wine is like after aerating it. The fun starts when you start to taste the difference. Have fun with your wine, practice swirling wine in your glass and don’t worry about being judged. The magic happens when you start hearing the whisking sound in your glass, see the bubbles and taste the difference. By aerating wine in the glass aromas come through more clearly and are easier to identify. You get a freshly aerated sip of wine every time, bringing out the full flavor and enhancing the overall wine tasting experience.

    With WINEWISK wine aerators you have full control over the aeration process. Wine is a thing of preference. Who says we can’t like our wines aerated differently to one another? With WINEWISK wine aerators preference is possible while aerating your wine. The more you swirl the more you aerate.

    @CrabtreeEvelyn Festive Gifts Have Arrived!

    I’ve been a huge fan of Crabtree & Evelyn since I can remember. Their luscious bath and shower gels are always on my wish list during the holidays and their gift sets are always at a great price point (meaning there’s no excuse to not gift me during the holidays, haha!).

    Logo

    This upcoming holiday season, Crabtree & Evelyn are unveiling a brand new range of goodies, such as their peppermint-scented holiday soaps (all $5), shaped as Santa, snowmen or beautifully decorated stars. I love them—these are definitely going on my wish list in December!

    holiday soap holiday soap

    But my favorite addition to Crabtree & Evelyn’s collection has to be their holiday home fragrances. I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to candles and fragrances so I was over the moon when I received my Gilded Chesnut Home Fragrance in the mail. This new scent combines roasted chestnuts with warm spices, ripe autumn berries and whipper butter with musk and a sweet cream accord.

    gilded chestnut

    candle

    It’s a soft, cozy and definite Holiday fragrance I’m loving in my apartment this time of year. It’s a paraffin wax blend and the candle comes in two sizes, small ($12.50) and large ($35). The small candle burns for 20 hours and the large (which I have now) burns up to 50 hours. That’s a lot of burn time, but I’m shopping for more because I can’t stop lighting this one!

    Crabtree & Evelyn has also carried their Gilded Chestnut scent to fragrance oil, fragrances botanicals, porcelain diffusers, and even a fragrance spray—yes, please!

    Stop by your local Crabtree & Evelyn store to pick up some of their seasonal goodies or shop online at crabtree-evelyn.com.

    Top 10 Beauty and Fashion Stocking Stuffers

    Last minute shopping is always stressful. The lines, the options, the sales, the options!  Let me make it easy for you. Here are my top 10 Beauty Stocking Stuffers that will make you come out like a hero.

    1. Julep Instant Warming Foot Scrub – This cucumber mint scented scrub warms up on contact like magic.
    Packed with natural pumice to exfoliate, chili pepper oil to stimulate circulation, and vitamin E to nourish. $14.99

    Bonus points if you actually give them a foot massage too!

    2. Fiafini Skincare Delicate Cleansing Emulsion with Desert Botanicals and Marula Oil

    Could be the best $28 you ever spent on a face cleanser. It removes dirt, makeup, oil and even toxins from the environment.

    3. Luvmybox for her or for him – Like so many subscription gifts, these are a bit of discovery, with a naughty twist and a lot of fun.

    For only $19.95 you can get something that vibrates, you can eat off, last longer and play with. Sexy little secrets can be a great gift for anyone! It is so flirty and fun that it can give spark to a relationship or ignite a new one!

    4. Pure Ice Velour Finish Colors


    A great variation on all the nail polish explosion out there from matte to crackle to chrome.

    This is a fun fool-proof polish that only costs $1.97.

    5. Vardagen Ugly Sweater T Shirt

    Such a funny holiday present for $24.00. An ugly sweater is not so bad when it isn’t itchy, smelly or ugly!  This variation on what we all know and love comes in vintage soft, ringspun hand printed cotton t-shirt that can be worn year ’round!

    6. Joey New York Correct A Line for Face and Eyes

    Aging is an absolute and with the new year around the corner, one year older means more more line. A coconut water based beauty line that can help minimize the appearance of pores and lines is a MUST for any lady in your life over that age of 23.

    It’s $36 and can be use over or under make up.

    7. SlingShots for your G-Shock

    A soft squishy silicon watch strap that gives your G-Shock a fashion edge. It makes the watch way more comfy than it’s original watch strap. The pop of color makes it fun and for $25, you can give your watch a whole new look without getting another watch. Genius right?

    8. Purr Perfume Gift Set by Katy Perry


    If you want to rock a new scent, you should layer it. Use the body wash, wear the lotion, top it off with the perfume! This is $28.50 but will leave you smelling like a million bucks.

    9. Santalia Exfoliating and Balancing Cleanser

    Unfortunately acne is not just a problem for teenagers and any kind of stress can even cause break outs in rent paying adults like me. The Santalia cleanser is unique because of it’s foam dispenser so you don’t have to scrub. It has all the good stuff in it like the antibacterial Myrtle Lemon and Kakadu Plum for Vitamin C. For $20, it must work better than drug store brands right?

    10. EmerginC Spirulina Toner

    Want to know if you still have make up and dirt on your face after you washed it? Use this alcohol free toner to find out. It has green tea, white tea and grape stem cell in it to make your skin free more zen then ever. For $30, it is a steal for a product that is 70% organic.

    That’s my 10 for all you last minute shoppers!
