FRIDAY FAVES - 6.18.21

- A little tutorial on how to adopt the spirit of those colorful makeup trends that are making their way around TikTok. (Hello, I'm old!)

See you next week!

[FRIDAY FAVES] Dad's Day, Cold Brew, And A Review of 19 Crimes Rosé

Welcome to Friday! It's been a TOASTY week in Minneapolis, so I hope you're staying cool wherever you are. Enjoy today's list of goodies, and have a great weekend!

FRIDAY FAVES - 6.11.21

- You guys. Leslee did a video review of 19 Crimes Snoop Dogg rosé and it is hilarious! Here's a teaser quote from the lady herself: "The taste...is a little bit like the Kool-Aid man...crashing through a big giant wall saying, Oh no instead of Oh yes." Go watch it!

- If you're stumped for Father's Day, check out our SHOP section stuffed with wines your father figure will enjoy!

- When summer hits, do you go straight for the iced coffee? I've been loving Fit Foodie Finds' take on Starbucks' Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew. It's just a little sweet, super smooth, and way cheaper when you make it at home.

- This green shakshuka looks like a divine breakfast. Best vegetarian meal ever!

- It's sunscreen season! Here are 5 mineral sunscreen recs from Cup of Jo.

See you next week!

Hello, friend! Get your sunny weekend started with this whimsical list of internet fun. Enjoy!


- This leopard-print backpack from Baggu looks like a killer summer accessory!

- Get lost in these cutesy photos of amigurumi (little 3D crocheted items). New hobby alert?

- June 12th is National Rosé Day! Stock up here. The Bodegas Itxas Harri Roxa Rosé from Spain is particularly lovely: bright with minerality and delicate fruit.

- Would you swim in this pool?

- I've never had mango pie before and I think my life is about to change for the better. YUM.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello hello, thanks for stopping by! Here's a smattering of things we love this week:

FRIDAY FAVES - 5.28.21


- We've got some very special wines in the Sip Better SHOP right now! LIOCO winery has offered us a few bottles of their limited rosé and single vineyard Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Valdiguié. These babies are delicious and few, so go check 'em out!

- How to make perfect picnic sandwiches!

- If you've been searching for a new comedy with HEART, go binge Hacks on HBO Now. It's features the incredible Jean Smart as an iconic—but aging—Las Vegas comedian who strikes up an unlikely mentorship with a much younger and struggling female comedian from LA. This show is like dessert!

- I've been slathering my temples with BLNCD Naturals RELIEF+ CBD salve whenever I have a headache and I swear, it instantly soothes. Our sister company, Cépage, loves it so much they put it in their Un-Wine-d gift box.

- Can't wait for my rhubarb to ripen so I can make this beauty.

Have a great weekend!
