How Do You Like Them Apples | Cliffton Dry Premium Cider

As you may know, not all wine is made from grapes. The most popular non-grape wine is Cider (normally known in the US as a "hard cider" or "apple wine" because of its alcohol content), made from fermented apples. Today we present a unique twist to the cider category from Cliffton Dry. As you can tell from the name, this refreshing beverage is a light, dry, sparkling apple wine. Cliffton Dry Premium Cider is made from 100% first-pressed, locally grown apples, is low in calories, sugar-free, gluten free, contains a low-alcohol (5.5%) level, and has a bit of a beer personality.


What makes Cliffton Dry so unique is the fact they use a variety of apples (five to seven apple varieties a year, depending on the seasons harvest) for their first-press process. This unique, refreshing beverage boasts a crisp, fresh taste and pale golden color, that is wonderfully delicate and pure. Organically produced, the Cliffton Dry Premium Cider makes a great wine alternative to pair with fruit and cheese or a seafood meal, instead of the traditional grape-based wine.


Grab a Cliffton Dry Premium Cider 4-pk for approximately $16.99 at the following retailers: Whole Foods, 'wichcraft, Fairway, Union Market, and www.empirestatecellars.com. For more information on this refreshingly unique tasting, dry apple wine, visit www.clifftondry.com.

UBU Beauty Tools | Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Urban Beauty United (UBU) hit the scene with brightly colored makeup accessories that help you achieve the look you want for less! Their makeup brushes and accessories are great looking and help to inspire women and girls to express their individuality through their makeup tools. UBU uses color coding for their products according to usage: pink is for face, purple for eye, red for lip, and orange for complexion.


This is a unique and fun way to bring even more color into the makeup world! Here are some of the products that we have tried and fell in love with.

Smoke Screens Smokey Eye Brush Kit

UBU's Smokey Eye Brush Kit helps you create the perfect smokey eye look that you lust for! Celebrities are often seen sporting this look, and now you can create this look at home. The brushes included in this kit are the Eye Defining Brush, the Smudger Brush, and the Tapered Blending Brush. So what are you waiting for?

 Lippety Stick Lip Brush


Something that every makeup lover may not know is that using a lipstick brush is better than just applying it directly to your lips. When you use a lipstick brush you have more control over the color and application. UBU's Lippety Stick Lip Brush helps you to perfect your pout and define your lips way better than you would be able to with direct application. With the Lippety Stick Lip Brush you are able to get a more even application of color. Lipstick will last longer if you layer the color on with a lipstick brush, so you don't have to keep reapplying your color over and over. You can also blend your lip liner and lipstick with ease to create a color that's unique to you!




             
 Lash App False Eyelash Applicator


Love your falsies but have trouble lining them up with your natural lash line? UBU has the solution for you! UBU's Lash App False Eyelash Applicator provides you with tiny tongs that help you to grip the lash, rather than just holding them between your fingers. The Lash App makes it easy to apply glue to the lashes and helps you apply them to your eyes with ease. Say goodbye to crooked lashes!
