Now that school is out, summer is officially in session at my house. Honestly, summer is my favorite time of year because it means sleeping in, longer more relaxing days, more quality time hanging with friends, more free time in general and entertaining. And while many people have fabulous travel plans lined up, others are spending time locally and at home enjoying regional finds and creatively planning staycation adventures. As for me, this summer, I am going to enjoy a mix of both international travel and staycation festivities and I am excited about both!As for my staycation plans, I thoroughly enjoy turning my home into a pampering oasis with foodie eats, tasty wine, pampering beauty treats, cozy lounge wear and a good book. Following are eight products that I plan on using this summer to create a fabulous staycation atmosphere at home. I hope you discover one or two products that will help make your summer plans equally as wonderful.
Faustino I Gran Reserva Rioja Let’s be honest, a good styacation has got to include a fabulous bottle of wine, right?! And while I typically focus on pink hued cold Rose wines during the warmer months, Faustino’s Gran Reserva Rioja is a delightful lighter-bodied aromatic red that I can easily drink all summer long! This tasty red wine is a well-balanced blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, and Mazuelo grapes that is aged 26 months in French and American oak barrels and then it spends at least 3 years in the bottle. This extended aging process yields a delightful, finessed red wine with a rich nose and bright berry notes that you can easily sip on it’s own or pair with lovely outdoor picnic during one of your staycation adventures.
My Ex Life by Stephen McCauley With a relaxing glass of wine in hand, now you are ready to curl up and escape with a good book. My Ex Life is a modern and relatable look at love and friendship that centers around two exes who reconnect and try to help one another navigate their current life challenges. This perfect-for-summer read tells the tale of an unexpected rekindling of a thirty year old relationship that is more about a deep friendship and unwavering support rather than your typical love and romance novel. Steven McCauley is best known for writing The Object of My Affection which was made into a theatrical romantic comedy several years ago starring Jennifer Anniston and Paul Rudd.
Bali Intimates Comfort Revolution Bra If your staycation plans call for lounging around the house, you definitely need comfy clothing to help you relax. Being a fuller busted woman who can rarely go without a bra, it’s hard to find a bra that’s supportive but not confining. Bali’s Comfort Revolution Bra is wireless, comfortable, supportive and cooling all at the same time. It provides superior shaping support, it has a proprietary Cool Comfort fabric that wicks moisture and helps keep you cool, it’s seamless and made with a flexible fabric that conforms to your body. I really like this bra! It’s comfy and it has just the right amount of support for lounging around house.
