August is here and summer is almost over. Let’s take advantage of the warm weather for only a few more days and it’s time to rouse ourselves off the couch, quit the TV-and-takeout routine, and head outside with friends for a picnic, sipping something refreshing and cool. Bringing the right bottle of wine not only enhances the taste of picnic foods, it adds a pinch of European sophistication to outdoor eating. But choose well! If you’re going to drink all day, you have to plan accordingly.
Day drinking is a delicate art; the wrong wine will have you napping under a tree before the fun day even begins. You’ll want to bring a bottle of wine (or two) that is crisp and fresh, especially when the full heat of summer hits. I have been trying a lot of affordable and summer-friendly wines of late, and today I want to share my two favorite picnic wines: Landmark Vineyards 2016 Overlook Chardonnay and 2016 Overlook Pinot Noir.
With the kind of hot and dry weather we have here in southern California, Avene Thermal Spring Water should be one of your summer essentials. Aside from my sunscreen, this has been my everyday partner to beat the summer heat.

Everyone knows that it’s important to take good care of your body whether its feature or figure. There are plenty of areas of the body to focus on, but have you considered your lips as one? You ladies probably stock up your cabinet with cleansers, serums, creams, sunscreens, and masks; but do you have the proper care instruments for your lip? If you think about it, your lips are always exposed; they’re prone to dehydration. The skin on the lips is also unlike skin anywhere else on the body: it’s thinner and has no oil glands. The result can be red, rough, and chapped lips. In order to prevent that, you are going to need a product you can depend on to stop that! I happen to know just what you need: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms.
It’s officially summer! For wine-lovers, summer picnics are pure bliss. What better way to reconnect with friends and family than over a glass of wine and light dishes packed with rich flavors? Bringing the right bottle of wine not only enhances the taste of picnic foods, it adds a pinch of European sophistication to outdoor eating. But choose well! Whether you are packing the picnic basket yourself or bringing along a picnic addition, make sure you choose a wine that elevates the event. Now that we’ve confirmed you’re a real wine enthusiast, let’s talk about which red wines are fun to drink during the summer!
I’m an admirer of the glamour of early 20th-century travel style: the tailored suits, the pillbox hats, the elegantly styled hair, and of course the chicly coordinated luggage sets (Have you seen “Mad Men”?). That’s why Bric’s Milano is always my number one choice for designer suitcases and bags. Traveling with Bric’s luggage set transports me back to that old world of charm, luxury, and romance.
