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

Why I go to Restaurants, Movies, and Bars by Myself…

There’s something about walking into a place by yourself and saying table for one, one for the 7pm show please, or asking someone at the bar if “this seat is taken” and taking it for yourself. You’re not looking around waiting for anyone but you’re just in the moment doing what you want and enjoying every second of it. 

When I’m at a restaurant, I sit at the bar and order way to much food. Then I  people watch and guess their stories. The best part, is watching people watching me knowing that they’re wondering why I’m there by myself.  I always look at those people and smile.

When I’m at the movies, I pick the girliest one. The one that’ll make me cry and, I cry alot.  I also eat alot of popcorn and gummy bears, and no one judges me. Most importantly, no one talks to me in the middle of the movie. #winning

When I go to a bar, I walk in with my favorite pair of high heels and that one outfit I know I look good in. I always sit at the counter and order a cocktail and talk to the bartender. Talking to the bartender often leads to great conversations and memorable nights as more people walk in. Since they speak to so many people in the night they can easily spot the good guys from the bad ones. And we’re all tired of the bad ones, so it’s nice to have a bartender on your side and heavy handed drinks.

Doing things solo isn’t for everyone, but it’s important to learn to be by yourself. There’s power in it that makes you feel like you can conquer the world (at least it does for me) especially after you do something by yourself that you wouldn’t necessarily want to do. Getting to know yourself by doing solo activities every once in awhile is one of the best things you can do for you…and that is why I go to restaurants, movies, and bars by myself. Why do you go?
