Wine O’clock with Segura Viudas Sparkling Wine

FullSizeRender.jpg

I’m always down to have a great time, especially with friends, and let me tell you about my new bestie: Segura Viudas Sparkling Wine!

A week back I was able to attend a party hosted by Segura Viudas, the ambiance was great and the setting, No. 3 Social, (one of the coolest rooftop bars in Wynwood) was everything but what stood out to me were the drinks. I’m no sommelier and I don’t know which wine goes with what food but what I do know is TASTE and Segura Viudas had my taste buds liking everything. There's nothing I enjoy more than a good wine with friends and Segura Viuda make sure we had a blast. we got to capture memories at the photo-booth, enjoy some bites with great music. We, especially, had fun trying all the different cocktails that they created with Segura Viudas. At the event, my absolute favorite drink was the cocktail made with watermelon, it was so refreshing and I swear I could drink it day or night, yummy!

I’m normally a fan of white wine but at the event I was able to taste some of Segura Viudas Rose wine and it made me believe change my mind. I enjoyed their white wine but the Rose really blew my mind. Not only was it my favorite because of the pretty color but this drink was soft bubbly and delish. With summer around the corner, there’s nothing better than a mixed Rose drink to set the mood, it’s light and fruity and has all the perfect ingredients for a great day.

After the event I found a couple of must try yummy cocktail recipes with Segura Viudas that I will for sure try.

These Furry Manicures Prove Nail Trends Have Officially Gone Too Far

A while back, we introduced you to the bubble nail trend.

If the sight of those hideous, spherical manicures made you cringe, you might want to look away.

There’s a new nail trend out there that will basically make you lose all faith in humanity and no, unfortunately I’m not exaggerating.

It’s called, “furry nails.”

As the name suggests, the new fugly fad is just like a regular manicure, except for the fact that your nails are, you know, covered in clumps of creepy animal hair and basically look like something straight out of a nightmare.

Yep, I know it sounds hard to believe but fingernails covered in hairballs are now a real thing, and I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume we’re all asking the same question: Why? Just, why?

If you ask me, these horrifying manicures prove that people have totally lost their damn minds and finally gone way too far with the abstract nail art trends.

Take a look at the pictures below to see these insane hairy nails.

If you thought bubble nails were a crime against nail art…
