Hey Hey! How are all of you doing? I hope all of you are safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. With all of us spending a lot more time at home, who is spending more time on the back patio or hanging outside on the driveway? I have to get outside with the kids multiple times a day for a breather and to let them get some energy out. Taking glass outside makes me nervous so I was happy when I found this Corkcicle glass with a lid along with this Vinglace wine chiller on sale at Nordstrom for 40% off. It keeps your favorite low calorie cocktail recipes chilled while also protecting the glass bottle.
This leopard Corkcicle canteen makes the perfect water bottle or non glass option for holding your wine. Don’t forget the snacks! I swear lunchtime has just become a full on snack buffet. Nordstrom has the greatest little bowls for snacks or late night treats. They are the perfect size for fruit, cereal or ice cream. My kids love them and have already claimed them as their own bowls.
