Wine Time

I love wine. Not as much as makeup but it's definitely a love of mine. I like collecting it and talking about it and of course drinking it. I wanted to start a new series on here talking about my favorite wines at the moment. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know I'll post when I find a new one that I like. I love to browse the wine isle of any store. I look for the sale items and bargains because that's how I usually spot a new one. I'm attracted to cool labels as well.

I have to admit that I'm kind of a wine snob. That doesn't mean I only drink $25 bottles, not even close. But basically I'm picky about what type of wine I drink. Price really doesn't matter to me. Matter of fact, I usually don't buy anything over $12-15 since it's usually just me drinking it. I LOVE to get a $15 bottle for $10 or under! Bring in my latest find - Clos Du Bois Pinot Noir. (Pinot is my fav) This is a California wine. I've had both 2009 and 2010 years and they taste the same to me. I found this at Kroger on sale for $8.99, it was $10 off! I would have never paid the full price for a wine I hadn't tried before.

Notes from the label: "Our Pinot Noir exhibits aromas and flavors of ripe red cherry, raspberry and cranberry enhanced by hints of vanilla and spice from aging in oak barrels."

What's your favorite wine?

Closet Organization

Hi everyone! For those of you who may not subscribe to me on YouTube, I wanted to share my recent closet tour/organization video. My Husband and I recently did a mini closet makeover and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I explain in the beginning of the video where we purchased everything. I've also include a mini spring fashion haul.

Gingham & Brights

As you all have noticed, I'm sure, I haven't been posting many outfit posts. The weather is not cooperating. It's either raining or cloudy or cold or both. Even though it was about 30 degrees when these photos were taken, I was determined to sport some bright clothing and a bright pink lip. I've always worn this sweater with navy pants but I loved the contrast of the lavender with it. I'm still carrying my Mondalu Pippa bag (not pictured). I do apologize for the semi blurry pics. My Hubby informed me he thinks wearing his prescription sunglasses may have been the culprit. Noted for next time.



Coat: Kohls (last season)

Sweater: old, Shirt: Target (last season), Pants: NY&Co, Shoes: old, Sunglasses: Jessica Simpson

Watch: Anne Klein, Bracelets: Macy's, gift

Finger Paints Meet Me at the Met

Nail of the Day ~ Meet Me at the Met by Finger Paints

 I've had this one in my collection for quite some time now. However, I've only used it a few times. I'm not sure why that is. Correction. I know exactly why. Hi, my name is Crystal and I'm a polish-aholic. I do love this shade though and the brand. I don't actually own many Finger Paints polishes though due to the fact that I only find them at Sally's, and that's a store I just don't frequent. I admit, I do have a few other polishes that are similar in shade. I would consider this a gray-toned blue metallic. In some lights it doesn't look blue at all (luckily for me since I don't look good in blue polish) and sometimes it looks almost black-gray. I just think it's a flattering color for most. I just really love the fast dry time of this one and it's so easy to apply.  Note to self: wear this polish more!
