Wine Wednesday: Tiamo Organic Wine In A Can!

Please follow and like us:

We’ve all seen wine in a box and we know it’s gotten a bad wrap and is making somewhat of a comeback as of late with better wine being in these boxes. I’ve also run into champagne in a can and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Now, I’m being introduced by WineSellers Ltd to wine in a can…and not just any wine; Rosé and White wine.

This week I’m going to tell you all about the Rosé and next week we’ll dive into the White wine option. I brought my canned wine to the beach because it was a perfect photo op but I think that wine on the beach is absolute must! First I want to talk about the amazing color of this wine. It’s a deep pink coral color that is totally stunning. It has a slight effervescence to it and you can see tiny bubbles along the glass.

I’m not completely sure I can say I had any expectation of what this wine might taste like. I hoped it would be good because how much fun would it be to find a good Rosé in a can?! My thoughts??? Go out and get yourself a 4 pack because it’s good!!!! It’s not too flowery, but has hints of strawberry and has the perfect crispness without being overly dry. 

Team is a line of superb, organically grown wines from Italy. They search far and wide for top vineyards in notable Italian regions, allowing them to produce wines with unique character and style true to their origin.

A 4-pack retails for $19.99, or $4.99/can. It’s roughly two bottles of wine for $20 and that’s a deal! I’ll definitely be enjoying more Tiamo Rosé in a can in the near future!

Wine Wednesday: Santa Julia Innovac!ón Malbec – Syrah Rosé

Please follow and like us:

Rosé seem to be the new “it” wine. You’re seeing it more and more all over the place and everyone is enjoying it. My good friends at Winesellers, Ltd sent me this amazing bottle of Santa Julia Innovac!ón Malbec – Syrah Rosé from Argentina. 

I recently saw a Facebook post from a friend who said that she likes to buy new bottles of wine based on how pretty the bottle is, but continues to be disappointed when she tries it. Rest assured…the label on this bottle is pretty and the wine inside matches it perfectly! The color of the wine is also an amazing coral color! Reasonably priced at around $10 for an entire liter, this is definitely a go-to wine that you should always have around.

It’s not overly fruity, but does have hints of cherries, strawberries and blackberries. It’s not too dry and if you’re usually a white wine drinker, then you’ll most likely really enjoy this bottle. I certainly did (as you can tell from the lack of wine in the bottle!). 

Beautify: Battle of the Charcoal Masks

Please follow and like us:

I’ve been reading and seeing a lot on the newest must-have beauty product, the charcoal mask, so I definitely wanted to give it a try. I bought the Mary Kay Charcoal Mask (retail $24) and I received a sample of Posh Cackle Spackle (retail $18), Teen A and I brought them up to Lake Tahoe with us for a spa evening during our summer vacation.


First up was the Mary Kay Clear Proof Charcoal mask. It was easy to apply and said to leave on for 10-20 minutes. It hardened as time passed so you couldn’t move your face (evidence in our corny looking pictures!). When time was up, we were able to easily take it off with water and a washcloth. No muss, no fuss. My skin felt smoother afterwards and clean. 

Our cemented expressions trying to force a smile…and still looking good in our LuLaRoe!

Since you shouldn’t apply a mask the following day, I tried out the Posh Cackle Spackle sample when we got home. As soon as I opened the package, I noticed a difference. I didn’t realize it was aloe and spearmint infused, so the instant mint smell was a surprise at first. It was easy to apply as well, but I had a slight tingling on my face (I think due to the mint) and the color was not that of charcoal, but more teal (it matched the LuLaRoe Classic T I was wearing at the time!). This mask you leave on for 5-10 minutes. I removed it the same way I did with the Mary Kay mask, water and a washcloth but this one was a bit tougher to remove. I had to really scrub it off and it didn’t feel like I had amazing, soft skin afterwards. 

All-in-all, I’d have to say I preferred the Mary Kay Charcoal Mask and am glad that is the one I purchased. If you’d like more info on how to purchase it, you can contact my fellow blogging buddy and Mary Kay Consultant, Stephanie Shar!
