Each week, their words will help us (and we hope you!) set intentions for the week ahead. We’re kicking off Black History Month with none other than our Vice President, Kamala Harris.

Amethyst is the birthstone of February. It is a shade of purple, a color that represents unity, connection. Purple balances the stimulation of red and the calm of blue. It is the in between, just as February represents the transition from winter (bye-bye cold!) to spring 2021 (yes please!).

#RandomActsOfKindnessDay: Encourage kindness 💞

Random Acts of Kindness Day is Wednesday, February 17, 2021!

Normally, we’d say you should give a friend or a loved one you don’t see often a hug. But since that’s not advisable, we have a few other ideas!

  1. Send someone $5 so they can buy a morning coffee
  2. Put cookies out on your porch so your mail person has a yummy midday snack
  3. Write and send a card for a friend that lives across the country.

#DrinkWineDay: Leanna’s Top 3 Wine Choices 🍷

As inspiring sommeliers, we live to celebrate #DrinkWineDay!

Leanna shares her 3 favorite wines of the moment that we think you’ll love:

I would be remiss if I didn’t include a Malbec on my list! I’m half Argentinian and Malbecs are what we’re known for when it comes to wine. This one is especially delicious. It’s fresh, it’s fruity, it’s juicy, it’s not too bold. It’s everything you want from a Malbec!

Skin contact wines are having a big moment in the wine world. Of course I had to jump on that bandwagon! And I have to say, this is among my favorites. It’s a little fizzy, a little dry, and so easy to drink. I love to pair it with a big charcuterie and cheese board! 

I’m actually not a huge Chardonnay fan. I often find them to be too sweet for me. But, this Chardonnay from Scribe Winery is incredible. It’s not too sweet and has hints of lavender with each sip. I tried it for the first time 3 years ago and I keep coming back to it.

#NationalRetroDay: Sequin lace masks, the new accessory! 😷

#NationalRetroDay takes us back to a time before smartphones and the internet. During our interview with Cin, the patternmaker behind our best selling face masks, she equates the fashion accessory of the moment, the face mask, to hats worn back in the day: 

“The sequin lace face masks remind me of the 50s when women would wear hats with mesh draping around their face. The sequin lace face masks give you a bit of elegant secrecy.”
