Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

Cocoa Fly's Thank God It's Natural WINNERS

Thanks to everyone who entered. It was tough to narrow it down to 2 winners. Both women will receive a TGIN sample pack. Trust me, the pack will last you a while.

Our first winner is Ambi who listed many natural features she loves about herself:

Naturally what I love about myself are my eyes, I sometimes stare into them myself from the mirror.I too have dark skin and I love my complexion. Although I do not need a tan, I love to sun bathe!Nothing compares to the feeling of sunshine on my skin.* I also love the softness and fullness of my thick curly hair, smoothness of my skin and my luscious lips.  Just to name a few-I could go on & on.
Nothing is wrong with making a long list of things to love about yourself Miss Ambi. Hmmm...now there's a thought. Ladies, when you have time just write a list with all of the things you love about yourself. Not what other people think or love, but what YOU love about yourself. What are the characteristics and features that you are so thankful to have?

Our second winner is Miss Annette. I'm typing this in bed and her entry reminded me that I need to wash off my makeup. She wrote that aside from hair natural curls, she's fond of her natural facial beauty:


"I like my natural face because I rarely wear makeup. Not that I don't want to, just never learned to apply properly apply. LOL! " 

Keeping pores free from makeup is great for the skin. And since the cosmetic industry is unregulated (some makeup carries a lot of toxins), not having skills with a powder brush isn't such a bad thing. Keep rocking that fresh and beautiful face of yours Miss Annette.
