You set the combination. You breathe a sigh of relief. Because we all have *that* friend who will run the liquor cabinet dry.

Very cute branding from JAQK Cellars in Napa Valley. I really dig the small touches such as the messages on the corks. Wine should taste good and, in this case, be playful too!

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.”

“Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. When you are seeking to bring plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are likeminded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of friend for your friends.”

Why? So I can text and tweet, of course! What better way to stay warm, chic and connected. They come in a variety of gorgeous colors and they are only $48! A steal for wool gloves if you ask me. I want one in every color.
