The Single Girl Loves BKLYN

“Trump Hates Brunch” and “Trump Hates Rosé”. Political satire at it’s best brought to you by the the clever team over at Loves BKLYN. BUT there’s much more to this brand then just Trump Hates Whatever…

The concept actually began with MTL Loves BKLYN.

Kevin and Luke, the faces behind the brand and former geography majors, were in Montreal for a bachelor party taking in the city’s culture and scene and noticed the feel was very much like Brooklyn, determining that these two cities were sister cities.

Sister City: A city that is linked to another, usually for the purposes of cultural exchange.

Brooklyn:  One of the Burroughs of NYC (The Cultural Melting Pot) and perfect hub because of it’s rising popularity and distinct cultural environment and style.

Geography and Fashion Intertwined.

The hope was by connecting different sister cities with Brooklyn they could create a “movement of appreciation” between different cities connecting cultures and people with fashion.

And I would say they’ve accomplished this.

So whether you Love BKLYN or want to start an important political conversation with a Trump Hates t-shirt. Loves BKLYN has something for you.

Rosé All Day. But Why?

Rosé. The Pink Wine that became much more then just our favorite summer beverage. And definitely became MY FAVORITE type of wine to drink all year long.

Rosé All Day x 365 = ME

But what draws us to this pretty pink wine? Hmm….

Is it the color? Pink is pretty amazing.

The fact that when you drink it, it brings back your favorite summer memories?  Sunbathing on Villafranche Beach while sipping rosé on the French Riviera 2016 we’re talking about you!

The crisp, refreshing taste? Umm yeah, it’s pretty good!

Or is it the clever names and packaging? We have a winner!

We’ve already established that I’m going to buy because it’s pink and it helps me re-live my summer memories and it tastes pretty good because Rosé All Day is a lifestyle people! So, really the only thing standing between me and enjoying a delicious bottle of rosé is what packaging and name I like best. And if that makes me basic, I’m okay with that. We can’t all be fancy wine people.

Check out my 3 Favorite Rosés with pretty fantastic names and packaging below (Click on link to purchase from Bevmo, or just visit your favorite wine store)…

  1. Gerard Bertrand – Cote des Roses . The bottom of the bottle is in the shape of a rose people, soo amazing!!!
  2. D’Esclans – Whispering Angel . Whispering Angel just sounds soo romantic! AND Matthew Gray Gubler offered me a glass after saying it was one of his favorites. So it’s one of my favorites now too!
  3. Babe – Rose with Bubbles.  The top of the packaging says STAY BASIC and it’s in a can so you can bring it anywhere. Oh, and it was on Oprah’s 2016 List of Party Must Haves. Need we say more? #micdrop

“My New Favorite…Red Lipstick”

Buxom – Full on Lipstick – “Barcelona” Red

Screen Shot 2017-08-19 at 3.08.15 PM

This just might be my NEW FAVORITE red lipstick AND “Barcelona” is the perfect name because like the city with this shade of red,  you’re going to feel sexy and turnt up no matter when you wear it.

Here are some reasons I fell in LOVE with Buxom’s Full on Lipstick…

  1. It’s not the standard size of other lipsticks, it’s crayon size so it can act like a liner that you can then fill in rather easily. This is especially important with red lipsticks so that it doesn’t creep outside of your actual lip. #girlproblems
  1. It’s a creamy glide on, so unlike other lipsticks your lips don’t feel dry on application. Which is important! I hate that with some other brands you have to moisturize after which often times takes away from the magic of its true color.
  1. This is also a plumping lipstick, so I LOVE the cooling, tingly sensation. It’s basically letting me know that my lips will be at their fullest when I have this lipstick on.
  1. In the words of Audrey Hepburn, “On a bad day, there’s always lipstick”. And I’m pretty sure that there are ZERO bad days with this one.  “Barcelona” Red by Buxom will leave you strutting in your oversized sweat pants.
