A Valentine’s Day love potion & more


I may be all about the bubbly, but there’s nothing more fun than mixing it up with your honey on Valentine’s Day for a more ROMANTIC drink, and why not something that BOTH of  you will enjoy? Mr. S prefers the mixed drink over champagne, so this Valentine’s Day I figured that I’d treat him to […]

O’zapt is! it’s Oktoberfest


Bucket list admission. While you may see me with a glass of champagne in hand, I DO love beer as well (I think it’s the bubbles), so it’s no surprise that Oktoberfest in Munich is on my “must do” list. While I’ll be here in the states finding a local Octoberfest celebration, for those on […]
