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…

Girly-Girl Shopping Therapy with CoverGirl and P&G eStore

Someone asked me recently, what gets me in a good mood on a not-so-good day. One thing I do when I’m down is go shopping for makeup. I hit the CoverGirl aisle and stock up. There’s something about the colors and playing around with a different look that lifts my spirits. Today is one of those days where I need a mood boost. I spilled tea on my laptop this morning (not a good way to start off the day). Some girly-girl shopping therapy is much needed right now. It’s cold and rainy outside so I’m not in the mood to go to the store. But I have another option.

I’ll channel my inner favorite CoverGirls like Janelle Monae, Pink and Sofia Vergara and shop at the  P&G eStore. Right now I’m really feeling the Plum Berry shade (pictured) of the CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor.  I’ve been using CoverGirl for years and their plum shades always make me look extra fly. Plus the Outlast All Day Lipcolor will keep my lips extra plumy-licious for up to 16 hours. But that’s just one of 38 shades to choose from on the P&G eStore. When you scroll over each color, a really vibrant photo of the shade appears so you can pick the right color.

Aside for shopping from the comforts of your home, there are other perks to the P&G eStore. Here a few of their deals:
  • 15% off on a first-time order from a new customer, using promo code: A9Z-MN5-KY3-ISA
  • Free Shipping on orders over $25
  • Free Samples with every order.

For my fly coupon divas, you can use online coupons and mail-in rebates to get further discounts. I just did a search for CoverGirl coupons on the P&G eStore site and there were over 100.

Unfortunately CoverGirl’s products won’t fix my computer, but at least I’ll look cute in my CoverGirl lipstick and blush when I go to the computer repair shop and hear the prognosis. And if the prognosis is too bad, I may have to get a little pick me up on the P&G eStore and hit up CoverGirl’s eye shadow section. Their Smoky Shadow Blast is very tempting.
Wish me luck!
