Mionetto Prosecco Rose
Spring means rosé! And bubbly rosé? Yes, please! This new category of sparkling wine, prosecco rosé, is a combination of the best of both worlds. Mionetto’s prosecco rosé is a blend of Glera (the prosecco grape) and Pinot Nero. Mionetto is based in the heart of Italy's prosecco region and has been producing wine since 1887. As the weather warms up and we spend more evenings on the patio, this wine is perfect for casual celebrations or just to soothe tired nerves.

The Rêve Pillow is a "reverse" pillow that you place over your head (like over your eyes and ears). It's filled with organic buckwheat and a blend of herbs that aid sleep and relaxation. But the key is in the weight of the Rêve. Like a weighted blanket, the Rêve invokes a deep touch pressure response that reduces anxiety and increases relaxation. We tested one for this guide, and, honestly, it works wonders. Wear it to block sound, light and provide a sense of tranquility. The fabric is an eco-friendly TENCEL made from Eucalyptus, which is wicking, cooling and as soft as washed silk. The Rêve is organic and handmade in the USA by seamstresses in a third-generation sewing company in Lancaster, PA.
