Hi everyone! Happy Wine Wednesday to you all. With Spring in full bloom and Summer right around the corner, a slightly sweet cava sangria might just be what the doctor ordered!
You will need:
1 750 ml bottle of Cava (Aria is my pick!)
1 Cup of Orange Juice
1 Cup of Grapefruit Juice
2 Ounces St. Germaine’s Elderflower Liquer
2 Ounces Ginger Syrup
8 Medium sized Strawberries, sliced or cubed
Pineapples, sliced or cubed
1 Peach, cut into wedges
1 Cup of club soda, Sprite or 7up depending on how sweet you prefer

Directions:

At least 4 hours before serving, pour wine into a large pitcher with the fruit juices, brandy, and Cointreau. Add the fruit and chill until you are ready to serve. When serving, fill a Collins glass three-quarter’s of the way full of the mixture and top with club soda to taste. If desired garnish with fruit. Serves 4.

Outfit Details: French Connection Lace Aston Dress

Cheers,

Hey Lovers! Sometimes it isn’t easy to stay motivated and inspired, and it is also very much ok to take breaks to clear your head and regroup your mind. When I get in a funk sometimes the best thing I can do is listen to something super motivating and inspiring. We all struggle and have our own stories to share and I am thankful for these people who have shared their own personal struggles and stories in my favorite Ted Talks listed below. It might be exactly what you need to hear today.

“The Puzzle of Motivation”  by Dan Pink

“How Great Leaders Inspire Action” by Simon Sinek

“Why We Do What We Do” by Tony Robbins

“Your Elusive Creative Genius” by Elizabeth Gilbert

“The Happy Secret to Better Work” by Shawn Achor

“Brain Magic” by Keith Barry

My favorite thing to do is the right thing, the next best thing I can do is the wrong thing, and the worst thing I can do is nothing.

Remember, I am always here to help….

Love to you all… and Happy Listening!

Ashley at Mom Juice, XOXO

Hi Loves!

I’ve been asked so many times by many different people what I use on my face for makeup, so I’ve finally decided to do a post breaking it down…all the way down.

Face:

1. I use Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen in the color Finland Light

I love to use a foundation brush to blend.

2. I use Anastasia Beverly Hills concealer in color 1.0 just around my eyes! This is thick and a very little amount goes a long way. Make sure to blend well!

3. I set everything with Mineral Fusion Minerals On A Mission Pressed Base Foundation in Neutral 1. This is more like a pressed powder than a foundation to me. It is very light and makes my skin feel wonderful and soft.

I use a blender from Target instead of a pressed powder sponge.

3. I use Becca x Chrissy Teigan Glow Face Palette which includes blush, 2 highlighters, and bronzer. My favorite is to mix the Hibiscus Bloom blush and Rose Gold Hilghlighter! I use a blush brush and mix the two with my brush and apply.

Blush brushes I like.

Eyes:

1. For my eyebrows I use Benefit Gimme More in color 02.

2. For eyeshadow I use Clinique

3. My eyeliner is BeautyCounter.

For a nice waterproof eyeliner, I switch to Cargo when I am traveling to humid places like Hawaii or Thailand.

4. My favorite everyday mascara right now is Soap & Glory’s Thick and Fast High Definition Collagen-Coat Mascara in the color Film Noir.

When I am going out and want my lashes to look like I am wearing a set of lash extensions or false lashes my go to high volume mascara which my favorite is Benefit Bad Gal Bang in Black.

Lips:

1. I love to use EOS first! I like my lips super soft before I apply any sort of stain or lipstick.

2. If I am going wine tasting I love to use a stain. Like Ardell Forever Kissable. I use the color “Date Me.” 05229 The stain is really nice because it won’t leave lipstick residue on any of my wine glasses. I also love the Ardell No-Slip Liquid Lip Liner which is also a stain. I use the color “Longest KISS” 05169.

3. I love the color Orgasm by Nars to use on top or alone in Spring and Summer. For a darker, richer lip I am really loving trèStique Matte Color & Shiny Balm Lip Crayon in Florence Fig. A great coral/pink color for Spring and Summer is Revlon.

Have fun picking colors and shopping for makeup! It’s one of my fave things to shop for!

Cheers,

Ashley at Mom Juice, XOXO

Cabernet is king in the U.S. and in many other parts of the world. We crave its bold tannins and fruit and it certainly pairs well with many of the dishes we as Americans love: including beef! But Cabernet Sauvignon has a softer side, and goes well with some cheeses and even lavender.

Cheese/nuts: cheddar, gorgonzola, walnuts

Meat/poultry: venison, rib eye, beef stew

Seafood: grilled ahi tuna

Fruits and Veggies: black cherries, tomatoes, broccoli

Herbs and Spices: rosemary, juniper, lavender

Sauces: brown sauce, tomato sauce

Desserts: bittersweet chocolate

I hope this aids you in pairing foods and wines! Above all, have FUN experimenting with all of these flavors!

Cheers!

Merlot has fallen out of fashion over the last few years… but its sales numbers prove that although it might not be “trendy”, it is still being drunk. We often forget about this grape and the soft berry flavors and beautiful eucalyptus nose its wines often have. I love that you can find characteristics like mint and juniper in a Merlot and think its fun to play up these flavors and aromas by pairing it with a dish that contains the same elements.

Cheese/nuts: Parmesan, Pecorino-Romano, chestnuts, walnuts

Meat/poultry: grilled meats, steak

Seafood: grilled meatier fish, ahi tuna

Fruits and Veggies: caramelized onions, tomatoes, plums

Herbs and Spices: mint, rosemary, juniper

Sauces: bolognese, bearnaise

Desserts: dark chocolate, berries, fondue

Top tip: if drinking Merlot with chocolate, make SURE that the wine is sweeter than the chocolate. If not, the wine will taste sour. (Chocolate is tough to pair with!)

Cheers,

Ashley at Mom Juice, XOXO

Riesling might be one of the more misunderstood wines. In the U.S. it varies a lot in style, and many produce a very sweet Riesling that has almost become the “norm” for Riesling style in the U.S. Truth is, Rieslings from Europe are often very minimally sweet, and this wine’s balance of acidity and sweetness actually makes it a very food-friendly option. The thing I love best about Riesling? It balances spice incredibly well, making it a perfect accompaniment to Thai food or other spicy dishes.

Cheese/nust: Havarti, gouda, candied walnuts or pecans

Meat/poultry: smoked sausage, duck, foie gras

Seafood: sea bass, trout

Fruits and Veggies: apricots, chili peppers, pears

Herbs and Spices: rosemary, ginger, Thai or Indian spices

Sauces: BBQ, spicy, chutney

Desserts: apple pie, caramel sauce

Cheers,

Ashkey at Mom Juice, XOXO
