Theme 35: Fall in New York. Picnic in Central Park With Rueda Wines

Bloggers Central Park Fall Picnic with Rueda wines that you can order from   wine  .  com

Welcoming Fall has always been one of my traditions, and this year I have decided to throw a cozy picnic in Central Park with my girlfriends to celebrate the last warm days in NYC. I wanted everyone to feel the excitement for the upcoming pumpkin-colored festivities and those long nights with a wool blanket, great-tasting wine and movies that make you cry and smile at the same time.

Speaking of delicious wine, I have recently discovered Spanish white wine! I especially like Verdejo wines from the Rueda region, and had to bring them to our picnic! A good white wine is a classy choice that everyone loves and it certainly uplifted the mood and created a friendly, intimate atmosphere, which helped our friendships to grow even stronger. 

I am not a wine connoisseur, but I wasn’t surprised to find out that Verdejo – which is similar to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio – is apparently the most consumed Spanish white wine in the whole country and it has been its best-kept secret for decades. Luckily, the import of Spanish white wines has been increasing in the United States and you can easily get a wide selection of Rueda wines on popular websites like wine.com (I have linked them for you!)

Rueda Verdejo wines are refreshing, a bit fruity and consistent in their taste. Every time I take a sip (and I am shamelessly drinking a Flor de Vetus while I write this post), I feel like I am tasting a summer day. A sunrise on a summer’s day to be exact.

The fruit notes in the wines are mild, concentrated in the sweet citrus spectrum with some bits of apricots and peaches, and envelope me into this warm feeling of endless hope. I might be overly poetic, but that’s how these wines make me feel: inspired, romantic and happy!

Oh, I almost forgot the best part! The majority of the delicious wines from Rueda are ridiculously affordable. Many of them are priced under $15 per bottle, which makes it a perfect wine for any party, picnic, or even for a relaxed evening at home. Please give it a try, you will love it! Here is a 10% off code for you: RUEDA to use on wine.com when purchasing Verdejo wines from Rueda!

Theme 34: New York Fashion Week. Best Blogger NYFW Street Style Looks

NYFW bloggers streetstyle best looks SS 2018, September 2017. Influencers style during New York Fashion Week.

This was my second time attending NYFW (my first was in February 2017) and I can say the experience was drastically different from my first one. There is no doubt that even my first Fashion Week was quite amazing for a newcomer, but this September I really got to see a lot of amazing shows, and watched this weird, fascinating merge of Fashion, Bloggers, Envy, Brands, Celebrities and Egos. But let's don't get ahead of ourselves, because I will share my true Fashion Week story with its' own beauties and monsters later this week.

For now let's celebrate the BEST NYFW STREETSTYLE LOOKS. The list will be updated, so come back for more in a few days, and submit your looks via DM on Instagram to @uliaali.
