Blasting About The Little Wine Guide (With #Giveaway)


Ms. Heart is a wine enthusiast on her personal wine journey who found most books on wine either too textbook, too long, or packed with information she didn't need or want to know. Eventually, she was collecting the information that she found pertinent to enjoying wine without a degree in viticulture. She thought others might like to have the short cut to the core material as well. Thus was born the idea for The Little Wine Guide. So, join her on this wine discovery journey! Ms. Heart has a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and has worked in Fortune 500 companies and Department of Defense most of her life. She is a Colorado native who loves the mountains and wildlife, but doesn't ski, and currently volunteers at a cat shelter, played clarinet for a short time, and dabbles in drawing, watercolor, and acrylic painting.

Book Excerpt:
     You have decided it’s time to learn a little about wine.  You don’t want to get carried away, but you would like to get a handle on why you like some wines yet others are just yuck.  Maybe you were at a friend’s house and the wine your friend raved about tasted nasty to you, but the recommendation at the restaurant was the best wine you have ever tasted.  Perhaps that guy or gal in your life enjoys wine and you want to know some basics at least.  You have come to the right place my friend.
     This book is your hack for wine, your quick start guide that provides a foundation and will give you ways to discover and enjoy wine your way.  Such as, throwing your own wine tasting so you can experiment with wine and have a good idea of what you are actually doing.  No need for a hefty book that you won’t read but may end up as a doorstop.  Wine can be fun and interesting, and I’ll prove it.   In this guide you will be provided with the critical basics to jump-start your wine education and do your own wine tasting for yourself or with friends and family. 
     We will follow two imaginary people in this guide, Michael and Jessica.  We will help both of them meet their wine education goals and learn alongside them in the process.
     Michael is your average guy who never thought much of wine; it doesn’t go with football or baseball.  But Michael is seriously dating and his gal likes wine, her parents even collect wine. 
     Michael wants to make a good impression on his potential in-laws, so he is looking to get a quick wine education before the big dinner where he meets them.  He isn’t planning on impressing anybody, but he wants to share in the wine experience and converse with some knowledge. We will give Michael the foundation he needs to skate through the important dinner and even be able to share a little about what he likes using the language of wine.
     Jessica is single and building her career.  It’s time to leave college keg parties and jungle juice behind and prepare for the client entertaining and high-powered social mixers she will be expected to partake in.
     She needs to understand what she likes, and navigate the champagne luncheons and wine socials without blinking an eye.  We will get her on her feet and help her find her own wine style and taste.
     As always, drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive.

  2. I don't have a clue when it comes to wine so it would be nice to learn a little more. I do enjoy it however.

  3. I have a couple of small wine guide books. I have such a hard time choosing new wines. This would be very helpful.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
