Live in the Vineyard with bareMinerals

When bareMinerals asked me to be a part of their Live in the Vineyard weekend experience I was ecstatic! I was invited the year before but couldn't make it and this time around nothing was going to come between me and my wine. Live in the Vineyard is a weekend full of live music, fantastic food and delicious amounts of wine...of course I was going to go to this! The drive down to Napa was relatively quick and I got a good chance to chat with all the other ladies attending on this day as well- a good group of editors, photographers, influencers and lovers of wine, food and music.

We started the day at Sutter Home where we imbibed in some prosecco, nibbled on the most glorious cheese spread and a dessert bar, then heard a live performance of the fabulous Melissa Etheridge. Then it was off to Peju winery to experience the most fantastic lunch, tour of the grounds and an intimate table side performance by sister duo Larkin Poe- who were unbelievable good. I still get chills when I think of one of their songs in particular, listen to Stubborn Love and tell me it doesn't pull at your heartstrings. It's about them as sisters...swoon, again.

After a little more vino, it was time to get beautiful, aka, makeunders at the bareMinerals suite! But not before a little rosé and pooltime. And off to the big shows of the night at the downtown grand theatre- where we heard standouts like The Ting Tings, Florida Georgia Line, and Oh Honey. It was such a great day spent with amazing and inspiring women. Best Friday in a long time. Big thanks to the bareMinerals team for including me.
