La Box en Pink

Le Bon En Pink Champagne Beauty Box

La Box en Pink: A Must-Have from Harper’s Bazaar! Our appreciation of the Parisian It Girl runs deep, which is why we’re thrilled to present La Box en Pink. This limited-edition collection of rosy-hued must-haves from iconic brand Champagne Laurent-Perrier and emerging French labels celebrate effortless style and joie de vivre.

Wine Gift Set Includes:

  • Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose
    The Cuvée Rosé from Laurent-Perrier is the most recognized rosé champagne in the world. The house uses its proprietary maceration technique and the wine is crafted for a fragrance and not mixed for a color. Held in an elegant bottle inspired by King Henri IV, it has been widely acknowledged for its consistent high quality for more than 40 years, and it is the benchmark for rosé champagne around the world.
    Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé is truly remarkable for its highly expressive bouquet, stemming from the very careful preservation of fresh fruit aromas during the winemaking. Made with 100% Pinot Noir from 10 different “crus ” (or villages), from the North and South areas of the Montagne de Reims, as well as the famous village of Bouzy. Grapes from carefully selected plots are meticulously sorted and de-stemmed before going into the vats, and the controlled maceration helps with the color extraction and the development of the full aromatic richness of the Pinot Noir.
    Intensely fruity flavors, clean and slightly sharp, the wine opens to the sensation of freshly picked red berries: strawberries, Morello cherries, black currants, and raspberries. The finish is supple and rounded.

Cheap Date~(closure of Elderly Parents)

Airport lounge champagnedievca lost those 8 hours of work on Friday with travel debacles, she made them up by starting at 4:00 am and plowing through the house. Her brother, Sister-in-Law, Nephew and Niece-in-Law + the three older kids (10, 9, 7) were amazing. 3 bedrooms 2.5 baths, full basement, full attic, 3 stall garage – sorted, packed, Goodwilled, Seniors Elderly Center, Animal Shelter and the house staged with furniture wanted by the buyer and left with some accessories/decent linens.

Dinners were nice affairs – Pizza on late arrival with Red wine. Caregivers and everyone shared a lovely meal with Seafood/Italian to honor Mom and Dad amidst the house chaos + the chocolates Mom loved, Wild Rice Chicken and Mushroom Soup + fresh baked bread the next evening at dievca’s Nephew/Nieces’ house. After the dinners, back to work for dievca for an hour or so.  Then, early to bed, early to rise.

At the Airport, dievca was handed a flute of champagne and started buzzing immediate due to exhaustion and lack of food.  she went for a second glass and overheard the bartender say that the “premium” champagne was being served because the inexpensive one ran out. So, when her elbow knocked over 1/3 of the flute of champage, dievca ponder getting a third flute – but getting bombed before a flight was not on the agenda.

Caregivers are cleaning the house today, dievca’s brother will do a walk-thru with realtor on Weds – closing on Friday if all goes well.

dievca’s Brother was on a mission to get the house sold. she would not recommend this timeline to anyone, but it is possible with many hands working together. XO

Side note: Mom and Dad’s ashes were in the Laundry Room, side by side.  Mom obviously weighed a lot less than Dad did at the end – we think it was the osteoperosis. The 1st night dievca needed water at 3 am and she ran into the laundry room to grab a bottle – the light over Mom and Dad was flickering.  Then she found a $100 bill in a card that her Dad had written, “Happy Birthday” with no name on it. Used the money to pay for the babysitter watching the 3 younger kids (5, 3, 1.5) – Dad would have been happy.


A lovely thought, but:

Businesswoman relaxing aboard private jet

  • dievca’s flight is too short
  • The small plane probably doesn’t have Champagne on board
  • dievca will be wearing a 3M N95 mask (she’s not sure all of the caregivers are vaxxed)
  • dievca has to drive to get to her Mom

Please have a flute of bubbly 🍾 for her, ok? (dievca’s Mom or dievca)  dievca will be praying there is a bottle of wine leftover from her last visit 🍷 XO


One for the Blog, the other for the Birthday


No coffee this morning – Champagne it is!
The Blog turned 7 years, yesterday and dievca’s years will continue on this week.
As Master says, “Time ceases to exist with You.”
Thank you for coming on dievca’s ride.

The Tiffany Champagne Flutes she won on auction from Housing Works NYC are clean and ready for use:

They are beautiful, yet quite traditional…
dievca isn’t that traditional anymore ~
she might have to change it up with this Etsy offering in the future.

Etsy: Mismatched vintage crystal champagne flutes $210

Or maybe a set of these from Julianna Glass

Julianna Champagne Flutes-Galaxy Spirals $23.00/each


Things are going well…

but buying oats, bananas, white bread and rice (colitis challenges for my Mom), is not exciting. Nor is yogurt in a bottle and jello cups for Dad.

Perhaps a little bubbly with its own insultated/neoprene carrying case
would jazz up the morning juice!

Nothing like seeing this in a grocery store — the desire hit hard.
But at $47.00 (£36)?
Well, not yet.

Note: Colitis is triggered by stress, right? Veuve Clicquot might take the edge off.


dievca is on Champagne this Morning

Apparently the ADA’s came into a Court Room of the NYC Grand Jury and it smelled heavily of wine, so alcohol has been forbidden in the Courthouse – a memo went out~

Yes, dievca did ask the Warden if the Jury could do something afterward. No go~

she will work the morning holding a coffee, do her Jury Duty, have one Prosecco before hopping on the bike to get to work for the second round.

An extra 20 hours a week (that includes the commute) has taken its toll. dievca needs to celebrate the end.

Who better to celebrate with than Talullah Bankhead?

If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.
Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.
I’m as pure as the driven slush.
The only thing I regret about my past is the length of it..
Only good girls keep diaries. Bad girls don’t have time.
I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice. That’s what I call a liberal education.
(On seeing a former lover for the first time in years) I thought I told you to wait in the car.
Here’s a rule I recommend: Never practice two vices at once.
I’ll come and make love to you at five o’clock. If I’m late start without me.
And the quote dievca feels strongly about:
I’d rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.

Now let her get that damn 8 year pass for doing Grand Jury Duty….

“Shaken, not stirred”
is a quote from James Bond 007
But it seems that he enjoys his Champagne, as well.
