In Vino Veritas

Which is Latin for "in wine, truth". 

That's one of my favorite sayings. Ha! Today's "Martini Moment" is all about wine! My typical drink of choice. I'm talking wine because next week is Thanksgiving already! So if you're hosting or just need a few good options to take to the hostess I've made you a cheat sheet. Wine selections can be very complicated which can leave you in the wine aisle blankly staring off into space.   

It's no secret that I am a red wine drinker but more specifically Spanish wine, nothing like a Rioja for me. But if you aren't certain of where to go with a red stick with a Bordeaux or Merlot. They are both in the middle of light and juicy and heavy or full bodied.  

Now for white wines, stick with a Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. Same goes for these, right in the middle. If all else fails and you still just aren't sure, grab a semi-dry champagne. 

Fast Tip: Sometimes it can be hard to know how much wine to have on hand. If you are hosting Thanksgiving or even just a larger party, buy eight bottles per 12 adults. Four bottles of red and four white.  

Layering and Menu's

Me: I am so excited for November!

MK: I know! We are going to have so much more free time!

The cutest lie we ever told ourselves. With a photo shoot every evening, house projects, a huge work load, and closet organizing, I'm totally burnt out. But the show must go on right?

What you need when you're feeling like you might be able to fall asleep standing up, is a cute outfit. Sometimes outfits can feel a little blah so I thought I would give an example of how a little layering can do wonders and add a little pop to an outfit. Also, I'm beyond obsessed with this long sweater. I have it on more than I care to admit.

And now what I've really been spending my time doing. Drinking too much coffee and prepping for Thanksgiving! We closed on our house last year the day before Turkey Day so I am pretty excited to be hosting my favorite holiday this year.

Stay tuned for some Fast Tips on all things Thanksgiving!
