The pandemic has affected so many industries. While some American states allowed many spirit retailers and bars to remain open to sell alcohol, not every country was allowed to do so. We highlighted this in our “How Can South Africa’s Wine Industry Recover from COVID-19?” article. One of the South African wineries who was affected by this lockdown was Graham Beck and their delicious Cap Classique Wines. We had the pleasure of getting to know more about their wines through a tasting and conversation with Graham Beck Cellarmaster, Pieter Ferreira. The alcohol ban has since been lifted and the public can once again indulge in these delicious MCC (Méthode Cap Classique) sparkling wines.
Calling all adult peanut butter fans; we’re got a new to enjoy the nutty spread – whiskey. That’s right, all hail the recently launched Porter’s Peanut Butter Whiskey from Ogden’s Own Distillery.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the VMA’s, it’s that pastel hair is alive and thriving. Pink pastel hair remains a favorite, as evidenced by Cardi B’s Pink Heart Hair by Tokyo Stylez for Joico. We’re currently rocking pink locs ourselves. The pink hearted hairstyle, featured below, was achieved using an assortment of Joico color and care products.
As the temperature gets cooler and the season comes to an end, it’s just about time to say goodbye to all things summer. Thankfully, this does not include Rosé wine. Once known as THE wine of the summer season, Rosé has quickly been elevated from summertime Rose’ all day to Rose’ all year status. Thanks to a wide variation in the maceration process, we see a wide variety of Rosé hues. Rosés can be anywhere from pale blush to vibrant cherry and are enjoyed throughout the year. One that will surely be enjoyed beyond the end of the summer solstice is Danica Rosé Wine.
There’s nothing more disappointing than trying to eat healthily during this pandemic and dealing with roadblocks. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve placed an order for grocery delivery, only to see that half or more of the things we ordered be unavailable; or worst yet, subpar. Our goal to have restaurant-level meals wasn’t always being met until we discovered Solex Catsmo Home, the only food delivery service you need if you live in the Bergen, Essex, and Hudson counties in New Jersey.
