Wine Tasting Diva

  • Wine Adventures - Bring the winery experience home

    Posted on Thursday, August 1, 2013

    I am the Wine Tasting Diva.  I love my job!  I just recently decided to go back to the ranks of employed.   I am a nurse but wanted fun, flexible, and lucrative.   I wanted to be my own boss.   Sounds pretty good.   I found a company that lets me do just that.   Believe me I do have to put in effort and work or I will not make any money.

    I bring the vineyard wine tasting experience into homes.  The host invites up to 18 guests over for a wine tasting party.  I help him/her plan the party and ideal food pairings.  I bring 5 bottles of boutique wine and the tasting glasses.   Everyone has a fun time tasting and learning about wine.   It’s a try before you buy concept.

    Buying wine in retail stores just by finding a label or name you like is often hit or miss.  Wine tasting is great because you get to learn about what grapes and regions of wines you enjoy most.   You get to try before you buy and you will always like the wine you have on hand.

    If you want to know more about the business I am happy to share.  If you want to learn more about WINE like my Facebook page [Link Removed] 

    Cheers and Thank you for stomping by.

  • Sunscreen SPF 100+ what???

    Posted on Saturday, May 23, 2009

    Sunscreen SPF 100+ what???

    If you have shopped for sunscreen lately you probably saw everything from SPF 15 to SPF 100. American SPF numbers are double the SPF numbers on European products. An American SPF 20 sunscreen is the same as SPF 10 in Europe. It is really getting confusing. One would automatically assume that SPF 30 is twice as protective as SPF 15 and that SPF 80 or 100 would be the best. But it is not really that simple. Let me enlighten you.

    The SPF indicates the time a person with sunscreen applied can be exposed to sunlight before getting sunburn relative to the time a person without sunscreen can be exposed. This is usually 20 minutes in spring, without any sunscreen. On any day, someone who would burn after 12 minutes in the sun would expect to burn after 120 minutes if protected by a sunscreen with SPF 10.

    Both UVA and UVB contribute to the risk of skin cancer. SPF (Sun Protection Factor) refers to the ability of a sunscreen to block ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, which cause sunburns, but not UVA rays, which are more closely linked to deeper skin damage. Finding a sunscreen that adequately protects against UVA rays is much harder, but just as important. UVA radiation reaches deeper into the skin and contributes to wrinkles and skin cancer risk. Some products labeled “broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection” do not provide good protection against UVA rays. The best UVA protection is provided by products that contain zinc oxide, avobenzone, and ecamsule. Titanium dioxide gives good protection, but does not completely cover the entire UV-A spectrum, as recent research suggests that zinc oxide is superior to titanium dioxide.

    The MOST important factor is using a sunscreen and using it correctly. Limit time in the sun, wear protective clothing and wide brim hats, apply at least one ounce (shot glass) of sunscreen, and reapply sunscreen at a minimum of every two hours, especially after swimming or perspiring.

  • Time to exfoliate??? Pamper your skin with stolen time

    Posted on Monday, May 4, 2009

    Time is something we never seem to have enough of. How much time do you spend on yourself?

    My “beauty” routine definitely suffers and I really need it. I try to find little ways to cheat time.

    Something I do is use an exfoliating facial scrub in the shower. It is always in there so I actually
    use it. I really love Garnier Nutri-PureĀ® DAILY EXFOLIATING GEL CLEANSER. It is inexpensive, invigorating, and leaves skin feeling smooth and tingly. You may already have a favorite so give it a try..

    Who wants to save a little money on weekly purchases?

    I just found this great site [Link Removed] it lists weekly sales (best deals) from local stores, coupons and where to find them. Lists of freebies and samples and how to get them.

    Andrea Deckard, the Founder and Author of Mommy Snacks does all the hard work for you. She adds some personal posts as well, so not only is it helpful, but fun to read and personable.
