Vine Tasting

Last night Martin Ranch held a little soiree for their wine club members - thankfully my parents are members!  We brought our own picnic and indulged in their free wine tasting.  I can not believe what a beautiful area I live in.  I think I'm set to go wine tasting around the area as much as I can.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Such a great idea for a wine cooler!

Martin Ranch had a great selection on the tasting table.  I tried their Merlot, but in the end we went home with a case of their Syrah.  The Merlot was nice, but a bit too spicy for me.  The Syrah is just so warm, rounded and easy to drink.  I couldn't help but love it. dd

Screening Process

Within days of being home, my skin was in shock from all of the extra rays it was seeing.  Just even from driving around town and popping in and out of the shops it was a bit pink.  I knew I had to up the anti on an every day sunscreen.  Ick!  I hate nothing more than slathering on a sticky layer to start only to slap on foundation and the rest of it.  By the time I leave the house it would feel like I have a rubber mask on my face!  However, that is now a thing of the past.  La Roche-Posay have given us a solution in the form of Anthelios 60.

This ultra light formula goes on like a dream and has a matte finish to leave you perfectly prepped for the rest of your morning routine.  It makes my skin feel silky smooth and gives me UV and Anti-oxidant protection all day long.  Anthelios 60 has secured its spot in my daily routine - well at least while the sun lasts! dd

Sweet Home

I am home. It has taken me quite a while to realize how much I have missed home. How much I have needed home. It feels so good to be here in the California sunshine. The food is fresh and the air is warm. I am in my element. Over the next few months I will be exploring San Francisco again and telling you of my many exploits. I hope you join me for the ride! dd
