It’s a new year and time for a fresh start on all things wellness! January in the gym is always the busiest time…but this year brings us more unique options that keep us out of the gym and fitter than ever! From virtual classes to the latest in boutique studio workouts, this year is all about breaking the fitness mold. We talk the hottest (and we don’t just mean sweatiest!) in fitness trends, and even touch on what’s new in the nutrition world. FitVine Pinot Noir is the absolute perfect pairing for us health conscious wine drinkers – grab a glass (after your workout, of course!) and listen in!
Boobies…we got ’em, and we gotta take care of ’em! With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, we thought what better time to focus our conversation – and beverage – on the twins we’ve got on the front of our bodies. One in eight woman will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, a sobering statistic for sure. The good news is there are higher survival rates and technology that improves detection. Still, breast cancer is a scary thing, and we want to be sure our DBPeeps are informed and have a better understanding of how to support those affected. While drinking the Montes Twins red blend, we run through recent statistics surrounding breast cancer, preventive measures, symptoms, and resources that exist. So wear pink, pour a drink, and cheers to boobies!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Eye Cream?! Ever feel like you need a brighter eye look? Or perhaps you are just interested in a little anti-aging? We delve into one of our DBP hosts’ top beauty obsessions, where we get into some of the most important things to look for in an eye cream, including which ingredients you might want to avoid. Sarah takes us through several products she has tried, highlighting some of her faves and her top eye cream du jour! There’s something for everyone as we explore the vast world of eye creams. So whether or not you are an eye cream aficionado, or looking to try one for the first time, we have a recommendation for you! Grab a glass, listen in and get bright-eyed!
Are you one of those people that needs coffee to get through the day (and, perhaps, ends it with wine)? Have you ever thought, is this really my fourth cup of coffee and it’s only noon? We’re sure you’ve questioned how much is too much – just like us. In this episode, we learn not all caffeine is created equally and delve into the health benefits and risks of drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages. So even if you’re an energy drink junkie, we’ve got news for you, too! Listen in as we discuss our other favorite beverage, as we kick it up a notch by pairing our topic with not only wine, but espresso too!
Nobody likes to fail, but the US may be dubbed as a failure of one of the biggest public health achievements in our history. How, you ask? Not even halfway through the year, this country is already seeing the greatest number of measles cases in over 25 years – with more than 700 confirmed cases across 22 states as of the date of recording! As anti-vaxxers become more prevalent, with pockets of non-immunized communities popping up around the country, our most vulnerable are at risk. Even a small dip in immunity of the nation’s population can make this very contagious disease a threat. A topic that demands attention, yours truly delve into the details behind the spread of this potentially fatal virus and talk about the propaganda put out there…it’s absolutely terrifying!! As we discuss the evolution of this potential epidemic, we thought what better to sip on than Evolution White Wine from Oregon…grab a glass and listen in!

We’re about to PUMP…you up! In this week’s episode your buff beauty DBP hosts talk about the importance of staying physically – and mentally – fit, citing some amazing benefits you may not be aware of (ahem, and some of this will help in the bedroom). Listen in as we explore some interesting fitness trends and share what has and hasn’t worked for us, and encourage our DBPeeps to get motivated and moving! Pick up a bottle of Australia’s Cycle Buff Beauty and get pumping….or pouring.
Your wealth should be measured by who’s in your community, not by what’s in your wallet. Learn about Dunbar’s number, join us for a mini-book club discussion of Sebastian Junger’s “Tribe: A Book on Homecoming and Belonging,” and hear how our society’s evolution has led us down a path of fewer interactions and meaningful relationships, creating more isolation. Quality over quantity, DBPeeps! As we pop open the 2015 Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon, snuggle up with your favorite tribe member and listen in. #whatreallymatters
