Hot Finds for the Red, White + Blue (and More!) Make July 4 Celebrations a Snap (Crackle and Pop!).

It’s the last minutes before the July 4th holiday. I don’t know of stores that will be open but I am betting there will be some. Why would you need to shop?
In case you find you are going to a last minute barbeque or party or maybe you are hosting a last minute barbeque or party, you might need some “extras” for those events! Even if you don’t have others over or go to visit someone else, maybe you just want to put a little sizzle in your July 4th!

No more breaking corks or having issues with wine openers that don’t work. The Rabbit is the perfect fix for any bottle of wine!

Eppa Suprafruta White or Red Sangria ($13.99, liquor stores nationwide)


America’s only sangria made with real, organic super fruit juices and organically grown grapes from California! Introduced with a fruity and inviting nose that leads into a light-bodied and refreshing taste, Eppa SupraFruta Sangria is full of amazing flavor. Eppa SupraFruta Sangria boasts nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine, the result of real, organic fruit juices and premium varietal wine.

This is the perfect wine to take along that has a light and fruity taste. The bonus is that it comes in white and red so that you can please everyone! If you want it to have a bit more fizz, add in some soda water or sparkling wine. It’s a terrific sangria and you can dress it up with slices of fruit if you choose.
It’s perfect for any place you are going tomorrow– even if it’s just outside to light up the grill!
You can find stores near you via the brand’s website: It’s in larger supermarkets, liquor stores like Total Wine and BevMo! (I plugged in my zip code and found 10 stores in just over a 5 mile radius.)

Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon ($14, liquor stores nationwide)


Josh Cellars was created by California winemaker Joseph Carr as a genuine tribute to his dad and lifelong hero, Josh – a volunteer firefighter and former soldier. With six different varietals (Legacy Red – blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot) delivering bold, rich, approachable styles at affordable price points, Josh Cellars’ wine is a great for celebrating our nation’s independence, or anytime.

I have featured Josh Cellars before on this blog and it’s a great wine. Mostly deals in red wines– there are 4 reds in their collection and 2 whites.
Worth finding the wines at larger purveyors of wine. Definitely for those who want to have a great wine to match up to their great meal!

For those who aren’t grilling but want to look pretty spiffy (that’s mostly us girls), here are a few things you might think about:

Tees by Tina Cap Sleeve ($42,


This sweet style features flirty cap sleeves and a subtly sexy scoop neck. You’ll love it paired with a sweater at work or with a high-waisted skirt to Sunday brunch. But for the July 4th weekend, it’s a perfect fit! This tee comes in so many colors and with such a great price, you can buy a couple and not feel much of a dent in that plastic!

Belicia by BareTraps ($49.99,


Embrace your impeccable sense of style with these strappy gladiator sandals by BareTraps. Accented with metal studs down the vamp and a comfy wooden wedge heel. Choose your favorite color of the Belicia and pair it with a vibrant skirt, or wear these fun sandals to bring excitement to your favorite jeans.
If you check out this site, you will find the gladiator sandals are on sale! So don’t worry that you won’t have immediate gratification. Save some bucks by buying it online. (Do check too. )

If clothing is not the issue, do work the makeup just for the day. You can use a lot of these colors for other events- particularly the lip colors!

($4.79, drugstores nationwide and Ulta! )


New Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm combines the lip conditioning care of a balm with the shiny color of your favorite gloss. Shiny color drenches lips with 2X hydration as lip-loving conditioners provide 194% more moisture for softer, smoother lips over time. This lip balm is non-sticky, gluten free, and hypoallergenic. The color of this balm is Apple a Day!

The beauty of drugstore makeup is that you are sure to find someplace open that carries this line. The beauty of Almay is that it will work with your coloring– be it eye color or whatever lip color you want to rock.

Eye color is something fun to play with too and with Almay, there are collections and colors for every eye color. So there’s all win and no losing here.

Have a great July 4th! It’s a great time to get outside and do something fun– (even if it’s a movie)
