FlipFlop Wines Partnered with Soles4Souls Inc.

I was approached by FlipFlop Wines to sample and review some of their frugally priced wines (around $7 suggested retail price) that include Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir.

I was very excited at the chance to try some new wines but not as excited as I was when I found out that
FlipFlop Wines have partnered with Soles4Souls Inc., the international shoe charity dedicated to providing free footwear to those in need. The program will raise much needed funds to give one pair of flip-flop sandals for each bottle of flipflop wine purchased (up to 100,000 pairs for the first 100,000 bottles sold, where promotion is legal. To learn more about Soles4Souls, please visit:

I recieved three brightly, pretty labeled bottles today, one Riesling, one Pinot Grigio, and one Pinot Noir and look forward to having a wine sampling party with my sister and step mother after the Fourth of July holidays!!!

“Fright Night” written by: Tom Holland

Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—and everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
