My real life is not as glamorous as all this. While I haven’t decided how much to share about the BlogHer conference I attended over the weekend because I’m never sure how much you guys care about behind-the-scenes stuff — though perhaps you would like to hear about me being shoved out of the way by Rev Run from Run DMC or asking a question about motherhood to Kerry Washington in front of a large crowd — I figured we could all relate to the universal favorites of moms everywhere: yoga pants and wine!
The conference kicked off at the NamastEPPA Sangria Sundown Soiree, a yoga-themed cocktail party on BlogHer Eve. It was hosted by Heather Barmore, Jenny Ingram, Heather Spohr, and Morgan Shanahan, with Lucrecer Braxton taking photos.

While bloggers were mingling, yoga poses were being struck. The sun was shining (ok, blazing!) and refreshing sangria was pouring down through a mega-cool block of ice to reach the perfect temperature. I now want this ice thingie for Mother’s Day or Christmas if that’s possible, ok?
Can I add this to my amazon wishlist?
My favorite of the flavors is Eppa Red made with a blend of pomegranate, acai, blueberry & blood orange. My date, Wendy, preferred the Eppa White with peach, mango, mangosteen & blood orange. Apparently Eppa Sangria has 2x the antioxidants of red wine and 3x the antioxidants of white wine. So there’s that. Available at Whole Foods nationwide.
Selfie-style with beverages out of view. So classy.
What to do with your bottle of EPPA Sangria?
- Host a Sangria sipping party in your backyard with other mom friends
- Binge-watch a new-to-you TV show with your partner
- Enjoy your summer dinner just a little bit more (does this serving of fruit count as a vegetable?
yes, yes it doesI am not qualified to answer)
True story. A few weeks ago I invited friends to my backyard for a summery backyard meal. I offered to make sangria — because, you know, over-achiever — and spent nearly an hour looking up recipes, finding a big enough pitcher, sourcing ingredients, chopping fruit, before chilling for an additional four hours. Frankly, I would have much rather twisted open a bottle of EPPA sangria made with all organic fruit juices and then just enjoyed the party. Now I know.
