Sawmill Creek Wine - Life is Simpler Here (BzzAgent Review)

The perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day is to sip on a glass of wine. I was invited by BzzAgent to join the Sawmill Creek campaign, so I picked up a bottle of dry white. There were many different types of Sawmill Creek wines to choose from, in 750mL and 1.5L bottles.

I decided to go with a dry white wine to sip on and to use for cooking.

The wine was easy to drink and was smooth tasting, with nice fruity green apple notes. It was a well balanced wine that was perfect for cooking and paired great with this chicken dish that used a white wine cream sauce.

The meal suggestions on the back of the bottle include: serving as an apertif, with poultry, seafood, pork and mild cheeses. 

If you are in need of a re-aquaintance with the art of unwinding, here are a few simple ways to start:
  • Take 10 minutes at the end of the day to reflect on the day's accomplishments (big or small) and treat yourself to a glass of Sawmill Creek.
  • At the end of the week, challenge yourself to carve out the time and space to unwind. Pour yourself a hot bath, let yourself sink in and enjoy a glass of Sawmill Creek.
  • Invite your friends over and enjoy Simple Sipping as you create a bucket list. Then commit each of your friends to crossing one off by the end of the year. Big or small - they all count.
  • Savour a moment of gratitude and share it. Enjoy some Simple Sipping while you send a simple, unexpected note of gratitude to 5 people.

Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Collection - BzzAgent Review

Pantene has come out with a new Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 with BB Creme collection and I received a set to try out from BzzAgent. The set came with shampoo, conditioner and a beauty balm for hair. I use Pantene shampoo regularly, so I was excited to try this new line from them.

The BB Creme line is advertised to help with flawlessy healthy looking hair with:

1. Repair for rough hair
2. Strength against damage
3. Silky softeness
4. Brilliant shine
5. Smoothing
6. Moisture
7. Frizz control
8. Gentle cleaning
9. Manageability
10. Detangling

I have been using the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 line for the past few nights, and my hair couldn't been more smooth and silky! The shampoo smells wonderful and only a small dollop is needed to get it lathered up into my hair and the same with the conditioner. I have yet to try the beauty balm, but it should help you with any tangles you get.

I'm definitely a fan of this new Pantene line! Let me know what you think if you've tried it!
