Anderson Valley Summer Solstice Ale
I had never heard of Anderson Valley Brewery and I knew nothing about this beer. I am always intrigued by new 6-packs (and the Moose totally sold me!) This cream ale offered something vastly different than what I am used to drinking out of a can. Then again, craft cans are not as rare as they used to be. With a distinct maltiness combined with mild hops, a subtle sweetness and a delicate hint of spice, this copper colored ale is smooth and refreshing, especially in the summer heat.
I got mine attached at Joi Salon on a whim about two weeks ago by the lovely Kellyn Jones and they've been securely in place ever since. They can be washed, brushed, blow-dried, straightened and curled, basically, they can be treated just like natural hair. I like them lots and am already tempted to get a few more! At $15 each (five or more are $12 each) they certainly add up. For now, I'll keep it classy with my small cluster of three.

And lastly, the beach & boat w/ drinks in hand always!
From Bio Bio Valley in Southern Chile, the winery notes describe it best: This wine is very fresh and crisp with lots of minerality and vivacity. It is well balanced with a combination of apple, pear, citrus flavors, floral notes and little touch of iodide. With a gold color like clear yellow flower petals, this wine is very attractive, offering a long and intense finish.
Sephora for OPI On StageThis round up wouldn't be a complete set without my nails! The latest swoon worthy color is an opaque shade of Gray Plum. I've had it for a couple years now and love it more each time I select this bottle off the medicine cabinet shelf. Why yes, I do happen to have an entire shelf in my bathroom mirror dedicated to nail polish. Come on, I know I'm not the only one. What little things have got you smiling lately?
