Mavea Review and Giveaway

 

Gosh... Last night I must have drank a gallon of water. Normally, I am not big on it. Confession - I am super addicted to Mountain Dew. But when  I have a cold, nothing feels better on my throat than clean cold water. The lovely folks from Mavea sent me a really pretty, and very nifty Elemaris pitcher. See the picture? It looks even prettier in person. 

It fits so nicely in my fridge door and I love the Mavea meter, with it's 3-way measurement that lets you know when it is time to change the filter. The handle is slip proof, and there is a handy flap at the top so you do not have to dissasemble to fill.

Personally, I feel there are so many pro's about owning your own filtration system and filter. It is more eco-friendly that using up jug after jug of water from the grocery store. It is more cost efficient as well! At my house we could spend over $90.00 on bottled water a month, when one filter will last several! 

D also enjoys it. Because of the slip proof handle, him and his bad boy self can pour his own water. And he is really proud!

First Friday: "Cultivating the Cocktail" @ Art in the Age

What can be considered a work of art in an age of mechanical reproduction? A damn fine cocktail, for one — which, thanks to an increased interest in mixology, may be the reason we’re (finally!) seeing a subtle decline on the PBR popularity scale. To feed (or rather, water) this trend, and just in time for a deep winter warm-up, the folks at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (AITA) have teamed with a group of local artisans on "Cultivating the Cocktail," a month-long exhibition of the tradition and craft behind the perfect mixed bev.

Mavea Inspired Water Filter Pitcher Review and Giveaway!!

Our family drinks a lot of water. We try to keep the kids to only a couple sodas a week, and have water as the staple beverage. Unfortunately, we can't drink our tap water. It's not bad, it just has a funny taste. (The kids use it to make lemonade or Kool-Aid, since that hides the flavor). So we started out buying bottled water, then that got too expensive and we switched to refilling the gallons. Much cheaper, but it is still an expense, and a bit of a pain if we run out during the day (the closest refill is 25 minutes away). So I was very excited about the opportunity to review the Elemaris XL Filtration Pitcher from Mavea!

12 Most Interesting New Products for Cocktails

The Twelve most interesting new products for cocktails? Certainly there are more than 12, but for the intent of this assignment, I chose 12 that influenced me in positive ways this past year. Sure there are some recognizable brands and a couple of under the radar finds. I was a Ministry of Rum judge in 2010, so Rum fits the profile as do bitters and of course Bourbon! This year I was named the “On Whiskey” Columnist for OKRA Magazine in New Orleans- and that led me to the discovery of Absinthe- another historic spirit enjoyed in New Orleans, location of Tales of the Cocktail. Twelve? Only Twelve? I’d better get cracking!
