Here’s a few suggestions on how to incorporate champagne into your Halloween celebrations.

Raise a glass to the spooky spirits!

I’m sure many of you plan on celebrating with friends by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. So let me be the one to remind you to always respect the dead and honor them with glass! Raise a glass in style with champagne!

Ernest Hemingway’s favorite way to kill an afternoon was with a cocktail made with a shot of absinthe topped with Champagne. In somewhat of a publicity stunt, he named his favorite drink Death in the Afternoon, the same name of his 1932 novel, and submitted it to a celebrity recipe book in 1935. In his instructions, he suggested three to five of these drinks at a time—that’s certainly one way to send you to an early grave!!

Side note – I tried these at the Hemingway Bar in the Ritz in Paris. They will knock you on your ASS!! I stopped at TWO!!!

Death by the Afternoon - Halloween Champagne Cocktail

Death in the Afternoon – Champagne Cocktail

What you will need

  • 1/4 – 1/2 ounce absinthe
  • sparkling wine (dry)
  • 1 dash simple syrup, optional (1:1, sugar:water)

Mixologist Directions:

  • Add absinthe and simple syrup (if using) to a flute.
  • Slowly top with chilled, sparkling wine.

Notes – Choose a good, dry sparkling wine or Champagne, because absinthe has a particular flavor profile, some may prefer more or less. Though the original recipe calls for a prodigious one-and-a-half ounces of absinthe, we prefer to remain standing after one cocktail. Contemporary versions, including ours, call for a lighter pour. Reference

WICCA and Modern Witchcraft

The modern form of witchcraft known as Wicca was founded in England in the 1950’s. Its members worship nature, and a female goddess. They take an oath to do no harm with their magic. Contrary to many beliefs Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists. There are now more than 400,000 Wiccans in the United States.  But you probably won’t recognize them walking in the streets, since they don’t wear pointy hats.

So maybe on this Halloween you want to stay in and conjure up some self-case by indulging in a WICCA BATH SPELL  – yes it involves champagne!

Whoever you decide to celebrate don’t forget to close all the doors and windows because on October 31, the spirits are out in the open looking to have fun! Be safe, strange things happen on Halloween night.

If only running out of champagne counted as cardio!!

It’s that time a year when it gets really hard for me to stay motivated. Daylight is lacking and it’s cold & wet outside. Plus the holiday season is sneaking up… and my schedule is about to get super hectic! I’m sure you can relate.
champagne is my cardio

As soon as I must wear more than one layer to run outdoors, I find myself saying “I’ll go in a prosecco…”  and I also find myself drinking way more bubbly at this time of year. “Fizz the season” right? Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, New Year’s and then my birthday. So really, I should be running more, not less.

For many runners, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of marathon training or jumping on the treadmill to burn off those champagne calories; a good music can often make the difference between a fabulous run or skipping it all together.

That’s why I put together this 90-minute bubbly inspired iTunes playlist chock-full of champagne poppin’ beats to keep me moving between all the holiday festivities!

So, if you’re a runner but also like to indulge in sipping champagne, my latest mix is a great for any run!  I’m sure it will help you get in the true holiday spirit and keep you running strong!  But you’ll probably be super thirsty by the time you get home!  What’s your favorite champagne inspired song?

Fabulous reasons why Champagne will never go out of style. Not to be mistaken for sparkling wines like Prosecco or Cava, a real bottle of Champagne, must be made from a combination of three specific grapes grown in the in Northwest Region of France called Champagne. A bottle has about 49,000,000 million bubbles!

A Sign of Luxury

Champagne is known as the ultimate luxury drink, and nothing says luxury more than Marilyn Monroe bathing in champagne. Yes, the blonde bombshell icon once filled her bathtub with 350 bottles of champagne and took a relaxing soak.

A Champagne Fact You’ll Never Forget

Research in 2013 from the University of Columbia shows that champagne contains proteins that are beneficial for your short-term memory. A study by Reading University in 2013 said that three glasses of bubbles per week can help improve it.

 

Heart Health

Everyone says that red wine is good for your heart, but champagne (which is mostly made from red grapes) is just as healthy. Studies found that the sparkling wine contained high levels of polyphenols – antioxidants found in red grapes but less intensely in white – that can lower blood pressure and prevent heart problems.  In fact, Reading’s Dr Jeremy Spencer, a man who appears to have generously given his life over to finding reasons for us to drink more, suggested that two glasses a day will do the trick.

Say Goodbye to Champagne Poppin’ and Say Hello to Champagne Sabbering!

Sabering is the act of opening a champagne bottle with an actual sword. The traditional technique includes slicing off the neck of a bottle with a single sword stroke —this is a cool party trick I personally have in my back pocket.

Vegan Friendly

Some Champagnes go through a process that uses fining agents like gelatin and casein to clarify the end product, but if you’re looking for a vegan option then Moët & Chandon, Korbel Natural Champagne and Dom Perignon are your bubbles of choice.

“Middle Finger to my Old Life” – Jay-Z

In 2014, Beyonce’s better half Jay-Z, a long time champagne fan, purchased Champagne Armand de Brignac from Sovereign Brands. A bottle retails for approximately $300. Fun fact- Hip-hop, rap and R&B concert goers are 94% more likely to drink Champagne vs the average person.

Move Over Mimosas

Sunday brunch has just been revolutionized! Champagne is no longer just for mimosas. Try this delicious Strawberry and champagne Pancake recipe and this hollandaise sauce with prosecco on your egg benedict.

Lift Your Spirits

For an instant mood booster, just sip champagne! This is thanks to the magnesium, potassium and zinc it contains.

 “Champagne is the one thing that gives me zest when I’m tired.” Brigitte Bardot

Help Prevent Dementia

A glass or two of champagne could possibly prevent the onset of dementia. Research in Pittsburgh found that the risk in studies were almost halved for those who drank ‘moderate’ quantities. More Champagne health benefits here!

Gluten, Dairy and Fat Free

One glass(120ml) of Champagne has about 89 calories, 0.9 grams of protein, 1.6 grams of carbs and 0 grams of fat!

Sharing is carrying! I would truly love and appreciate if you shares this article on any social media xo

Last weekend we sent the clocks forward. In Vancouver the flowers are in bloom and every other day we’re blessed with sunshine and mild weather. On Saturday I laced up and set out for my first run of the season. The sun shining, the ski blue, the birds chirping, the air mild and fresh. Perfect running conditions. I’m not sure when I went from obsessive runner to seasonal runner but these days if it’s too cold, too wet or too windy you’ll definitely find me working out in a studio rather then battling mother nature.

With Spring on its way, I sorted through my fitness wardrobe and recent purchases and decided to share my personal “Must Have” Spring Running Finds for the Fitness Fashionista.

Shopping is my cardio!” Carrie Bradshaw

So, let’s start with the Zandra 2 piece outfit from Fabletics! The Salar Mesh PowerHold Legging are designed with ultra-lightweight performance fabric that wicks away moisture & enhances airflow to help you remain chafe-free! The max-compression performance fabric sculpts & supports you and is designed with runners in mind with the side pockets big enough for your iPhone and keys. The super soft-fabric feels like you’re wearing next to nothing at all and sit perfectly on you hips.

Shira Sports Bra

The Shira Sports Bra is made with a wide bottom band for extra support and wide, adjustable elastic straps deigned for full support. The removable cups and power mesh detail at the neckline are moisture-wicking compression fabric.  This sports bra is one of my season’s favorite for sure.

 

 

I can never have too many sneakers and I can never have too many shades of pink! I found these Reebok – Women’s Guresu in Sandy Rose at DSW in San Francisco. They are super lightweight and provide stability & support, with EVA midsole to absorb shock and a midfoot wrap to anchor your foot. I feel like I’m running on air!

REEBOK’s WOMEN’S GURESU

So now you’re dressed and ready to go. But before you head out on one of your long runs, you better think about staying hydrated. Drinking  before, during or after your workout will help you feel and perform at your best. This electrolyte comes in a tablet and will replace and replenish what you lose through sweat. Bonus it’s only 10 calories, 1 gram of sugar and nothing artificial. Just drop a tablet into your water bottle before leaving and enjoy. It’s available in a number of different flavors and can be purchased online and at most supplement stores and drug stores.

 

I don’t know about you, but you won’t catch me on a run without music! Since December I’ve lost 2 iPhone headsets and a wireless rose-gold headset. When I came across the Skullcandy Chops In-Ear Sweat Resistant Sports Earbud with Mic for only $19.99 I figure it was worth a try. This headset may not be pink but it’s the best I’ve used for running so far, and this is why:

  • Designed with a swivel hinge, you can swing the buds out during runs or when you need to hear surrounding sounds.
  • Sweat Resistant: Fully sealed construction protects sensitive components from moisture that can destroy your earbuds.
  • Won’t Budge: TheStickyGels technology is 30% more secure when sweating which boosts in-ear stability.
  • Epic Sound: Chops In-Ear produces attacking powerful bass; warm, natural vocals; and precision highs. All that is left to do it get lost in your favorite beats!

Every day is a fashion show, let the world be your runway.”
