Are You a #wineparty Participant or Just Enjoy a Glass Now and Then?

wine-bottle

My next review item arrived today! I was selected to review some wines. I am very excited!

wine-bottle

My husband and I were just talking about wine as a health benefit when this opportunity arose.

This review will be on 2 white wines. Neither have I tried this winery or this variety. I am interested in how I will like the flavor of them.

I was able to go to a small local winery several years ago. My husband and I had splurged on a night away from the kids and got to have a private sampling. I know there are particular ways to sample wines, so this will be a real learning experience. I think it is only fair to use the steps you would go through for a formal wine tasting.

All things going well it should be towards the end of the week.

Be watching for the review!

Selling Products For Profit

I have been a long time subscriber of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The rise of recalls on products manufactured in China has been on the list more times than I can count. Again today, they released this recall into my email box. One thing that caught my eye was it is in my own backyard, so to speak. Fort Wayne is hours from me in far northern Indiana. What if I went to that trunk show?!

This reads like it could be anyone of us, Blogger, Ebay Seller, Etsy Store Momma's. The interest in business owner, income producing Momma's is at the heart and mind of our driven online activities.

I have to PLEED, Please, think twice before buying into a lot of cute goodies in those Magazines that offer - Get these cute beads 100 ct for $2. That great deal could just be the cause of someone's child becoming ill, injured or even death.

There is a price to put on safety. I also wouldn't want to see someone sued over this kind of thing. I want to make a little money like the next momma, but not at this kind of price.
