Wicked Last Minute Halloween Costumes

October 17th, 2017 / Julie McCarthy / 0 comments

Halloween is fast approaching – and the costume parties have already begun. Trying to order those last minute costumes from Amazon could be cutting it close – and cutting the bank as well. We have some last minute costume ideas that may not even require purchasing anything at all.

Sandy & Danny from GREASE

Sandy – Leather/Pleather/Silky Black Jeans, an off the shoulder black top, hoop earrings, leather jacket (optional), and red lipstick. Any of these items can be purchased last minute at a Forever 21 if you don’t own them already. You’ll also need a curling iron. If you have a smaller barrel curling iron, it’ll look more authentic. Another options would be to put in curlers the night before.

Danny – Black T-Shirt, black jeans, black belt and black dress shoes. Lots of hair gel, stud.

A Mouse, Duh

Literally wear whatever you please and mouse ears (Drugstores and Target should have plenty of these for under $10). As Karen from Mean Girls would say, “I’m a mouse, duh!”

Dancing Emoji Girls

It’s v easy to recreate this look, especially if you and a girlfriend are both blonde.

If you already own a Black leotard/bodysuit (again, Forever 21), just wear some black flats and purchase a pair of bunny ears (CVS, Target, any costume shop)

Rosie the Riveter

Can you say girl power? All you need is a denim shirt, jeans, and a bandana. Oh, and this pose

Risky Business

All you need is an oversized white dress shirt, high white sox, and your Ray Ban Wayfarer. Perfect for boys and girls!

The Brawny Paper Towel Guy

Red Flannel and some paper towels. Easy enough, eh?

Wednesday Adams

Wear a white collared shirt under any long sleeved black dress, braid some pigtails, and wipe that smile off your face. There you have it!

Now all you need is some Wicked Pinot Noir, a bowl full of candy, perhaps a shot or two of tequila, and you’re ready to go! #BestCostume Happy Halloween!


 

Our Favorite Halloween Candy & Wine Pairings

October 10th, 2017 / Julie McCarthy / 0 comments

We love candy, almost as much as we love wine, which is why Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. I don’t know about you but I think there should be a designated evening for adults to go “Trick or Treating” where kids hand out bottles of wine from their front porch – not a crazy thought, right?

Although that may be a far reach, I’m still down to hand out hoard candy while splitting a few bottles of wine with myself. The kids costumes get so much cuter after each glass! Whether you’re planning on handing out candy this Halloween, hosting a party, or just looking for a way to spice up an evening in alone, we’ve got your Halloween candy and wine pairings covered.

Wicked Pinot Noir & Reese’s Cups

Catch me with 2 bottles of Wicked Pinot Noir and a bag of Reese’s Cups on any give Friday night from September 1st-October 31st sprawled across the couch watching Hocus Pocus on repeat and pretending not to see your texts and snap chats. There is nothing more relaxing like red wine, chocolate and peanut butter, and silence.

2. Wicked Rosé & Skittles

The perfect pre game does not exi-

What will get you more amped up for a night out than an unhealthy amount of sugar and multiple bottles of Wicked Rosé? #Tastetherainbow

Sour Patch Kids & Wicked Moscato

Just in case you wanted to get EXTRA sweet, throw some of those Sour Patch kids into the Moscato. Throwing a party? Serve it as your themed cocktail for the evening – you are SO crafty!

Everyone at the party will soon to be bouncing off the walls! Literally.

Kit Kats & Wicked Cabernet

^^^ BC Kit-KATS & CAT-bernet IS GENIUS

Plus, the whole red wine and chocolate thing cannot be argued.

Candy Corn & Wicked Sauvignon Blanc

Keep. Em. Coming. Our crisp Sauv B pairs perfectly with these little delightful candies – you won’t be able to stop!

The moral of the story? Make sure to stock up on plenty of candy and plenty of bottles. Happy Halloween!


 

Pumpkin Must Haves for this October

October 3rd, 2017 / Julie McCarthy / 0 comments

It’s finally October, and you know what that means:

Yes, Hocus Pocus everyday while over dosing on something PUMPKIN.

Check out our favorite PUMPKIN must haves for this season!

  1. Southern Tier Pumking Beer

With the pleasant fall taste of pumpkin, nutmeg, and vanilla, this beer makes the perfect accessory to a day of horror movies, pumpkin carving, and football.

2. Pumpkin Bread (obv)

Try Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Mix – it’s super quick and easy to bake!

Feeling extra? Turn the pumpkin bread into cupcakes – just add some pumpkin flavored cream cheese!

3. DIY Pumpkin Spice Lattes

I love a good PSL – so much that I needed to cut back on spending the big bucks on them twice a day. This DIY recipe is quick, inexpensive, and festive! Great for a Sunday morning, accompanied by your pumpkin cupcakes.

Microwave one cup of almond milk, 2 tablepsoons of pumpkin puree, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/4 tablespoon of vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice in a microwave safe bowl for one minute. When done heating, whisk until mixture is foamy.

Pour 1/4 cup of espresso or strong coffee into a large mug. Top with the mixture and whipped cream. Don’t forget to garnish with cinnamon!

Oh and just a quick life hack: All pumpkin products known to eternity pair TREMENDOUSLY with Wicked Pinot Noir, just saying.

Stay tuned for more seasonal recipes!
