Burgundy is one of the season's biggest colors in fashion and beauty — and now there's more than one way to have a wine hue on your lips. Sonoma winery Clos du Bois has teamed up with makeup brand Pixi to create Cosmétique ($19, $30 with wine), a makeup set inspired by Clos du Bois Rouge Red. The sultry hue reveals itself in a mini lip gloss, a nail polish, and lip-and-cheek stain. All autumnal, all very everyday-wearable — and best of all, 100 percent of proceeds go to Step Up Women's Network. A cute kit with a charitable initiative? We'll drink to that.
If you're thinking of sending your mom an ecard this Mother's Day, send one from Toast to Mom. This website is partnering with Clos du Bois — one of my favorite affordable wine makers — to raise money for women's heart disease.
For each sent ecard, Clos du Bois will donate $1 to the cause. The site also has tips for healthy living and some delicious-looking recipes for grilled shrimp with mango salsa and spicy oven fried chicken. I've already sent etoasts to the important mothers in my life and suggest you do the same!
