6 Awesome Rosés for Summer Drinking

After weeks of false starts (at least on the East Coast), it looks like spring has finally arrived and summer isn’t far away. And you know what that means—drinkin’ outside! Nothing’s better after a long day of being trapped in the office than to head immediately alfresco and imbibe something cold and refreshing. While we’re partial to beer, rosé has become the star beverage of outdoor gatherings from coast to coast. So, we’ve rounded up six awesome rosés to make your outdoor drinking more rosy. Read it on Parade.


10 Awesome Gifts for Mother's Day 


Mother’s Day is a great occasion to stop and take stock in what a lackluster child you are to your mother.  You know it’s true.  These days, you barely answer the phone calls of the woman who gave you life, fed and clothed you, taught you things like how to use a spoon, or dispensed age-old wisdom that girls in middle school who were mean to you were “just jealous.”  Yeah, yeah—work’s crazy!  You’re soooo busy!  Get it together and buy her something ASAP!  This is your big chance to make up for being such a jerk.  And even though she deserves more—way more—than whatever you’re going to buy her, she’ll love it anyway.  She’d also love if you’d stop letting her calls go to voicemail.  Just sayin’.  Read it on Parade.


7 Best Bourbons for Your Kentucky Derby Party 

Anyone who knows the pain of going to a Super Bowl party exclusively for the drinks and snacks, only to find they’re trapped in a room with people who actually want to watch the game, will revel in the Kentucky Derby this May 5. Why? Because the entire race lasts less than five minutes, allowing you to focus on things you care about, like booze, and maybe fun hats. It’s truly the perfect sporting event for anyone who likes the idea of sports, but doesn’t want to watch or participate in them.

Since you’re focusing on everything other than the main event, you’ll probably find yourself deeply invested in the only thing more quintessential to the Kentucky Derby than horses—bourbon. With the infamous Kentucky Bourbon Trail is just down the road from Churchill Downs, it only makes sense that bourbon and the Derby go hand-in-hand. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best bourbons on the market to help you celebrate one of the shortest sporting events out there. Check it out on Parade.



If you love espresso, you know how hard it is to find a good one — especially while traveling. Hotel and airport coffee tends to be abysmal and if you're somewhere without even subpar amenities (read: the great outdoors), it gets worse.  Good news, though! Your caffeine-related prayers have been answered ... by the MiniPresso ($50).

Bodum Chambord French Press 

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to how they want to get their morning coffee. Some want to down multiple cups from a huge pot before they walk out the door; others don't want to bother with it at all, preferring to pick up a fancy concoction every day at their local coffee shop on the way to the office.

If you're somewhere in the middle of those two things, we strongly recommend the French press.

The brew process is one of the easiest, least expensive ways to make great coffee. It's decidedly low-tech: All you need is some hot water, ground coffee, the device, and some arm muscles to press the coffee.
