Champagne Industry Rule no. 4080, Champagne counterfeiters are shaaaadddyyyy {classic hip-hop lovers will get that reference}. This story is proof positive of why you need The Bubbleista in your life: to avoid the fizzy fake-ness. Well I am like the Pied Piperess of bubbly, you know…

Who knew veganism had a place in champagne?

Apparently Champagne Duval-Leroy determined that it does, as it has made it entire portfolio “vegan-friendly” through employing production methods the Champagne House deems to be more natural. Find out how they’re doing it and why it’s actually pretty cool.

{3} A Champagne Brunch of My Dreams

Most of us poor souls are relegated to only being able to partake of a champagne brunch just one measly day a week. The Makati Diamond Residences {in Manila, Philippines} scoffs at the idea of the once-a-week idea and have made the champagne brunch available every. Single. Day.

Finally, someone who truly understand my needs!

May I add that this isn’t just any old bubbly brunch either. The Makati is serving premium Grower Champagnes and super luxurious cuisine offerings such {the highly coveted} Bottarga; Fois Gras Macarons {!!!}; and Jamon Iberico.

Now for the sad news: rumor has it that the buffet may only be running through the end of March. Hmmm, perhaps some travel to the Makati Diamond Residences should be in order soon…

{4} Everything’s Coming Up Rosés

It is unseasonably warm where I live {it’s going to be in the low 70’s this weekend!} and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I am so not a cold-weather person. All of the balmy temps and warm sunshine definitely has me in a springtime frame of mind, and what could be more warm weather wine apropos than rosé?

In the spirit of spring, check out Martha Stewart’s {my #TheMarthaStewartOfChampagne namesake, ha} Lillet Rosé Spring Cocktail.

*BONUS: This Saturday is #OTBN, also known as “Open That Bottle Night!” It’s a day invented to encourage people to open that bottle of wine they’ve been saving for a special occasion since every single day that we’re alive is special. Join in on the fun by posting your pics on social media {especially Twitter} with the hashtag #OTBN, and don’t forget to also follow me on Instagram to see what bottle{s} I’ll be popping open!

Avoir un grand weekend”–Have a great weekend, darlings!

    I have observed that online degree is getting preferred because obtaining your college degree online has developed into popular alternative for many people. Quite a few people have certainly not had a possible opportunity to attend a normal college or university yet seek the elevated earning potential and a better job that a Bachelors Degree gives. Still other folks might have a college degree in one discipline but would choose to pursue another thing they now develop an interest in.

    Thanks for enabling me to get new tips about desktops. I also have the belief that one of the best ways to help keep your laptop in excellent condition is with a hard plastic-type case, or perhaps shell, that fits over the top of one’s computer. A lot of these protective gear tend to be model unique since they are manufactured to fit perfectly within the natural outer shell. You can buy these directly from the seller, or via third party places if they are readily available for your laptop, however not every laptop will have a spend on the market. All over again, thanks for your ideas.

    One thing I want to touch upon is that fat burning plan fast is possible by the perfect diet and exercise. Ones size not just affects the look, but also the quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorders, health risks, and physical skills are impacted in excess weight. It is possible to do everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a condition may be the offender. While an excessive amount of food but not enough physical exercise are usually responsible, common health concerns and widespread prescriptions may greatly enhance size. Many thanks for your post here.

    Thanks for your helpful article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally a result of the breathing of dust from mesothelioma, which is a carcinogenic material.

    I might also like to state that most of those that find themselves with out health insurance are typically students, self-employed and people who are without a job. More than half of those uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not feel they are requiring health insurance as they are young along with healthy. Its income is generally spent on real estate, food, and entertainment. Most people that do go to work either complete or as a hobby are not provided insurance via their work so they head out without as a result of rising tariff of health insurance in the usa. Thanks for the thoughts you talk about through this blog.

In order to succeed in fixing your credit score you have to ensure that from this second you pay all of your monthly dues promptly in advance of their slated date.
