Aldi’s new £2.99 half bottles of wine solve a classic drinking dilemma

Aldi has added three half-sized bottles of wine to its range, providing an answer for that age-old question: to open a whole bottle or not to open a whole bottle?
Aimed at mid-week drinkers, the 37cl bottles are perfect for those nights when you just want a glass or two – and you don’t want the guilt of cracking open a full 75cl bottle.

Available in three varieties, including Pinot Grigio, a Pinot Noir and a Chilean Malbec, the range is priced at just £2.99 per bottle – meaning it’s kind on your bank account, too.

“With more and more consumers opting for a healthier lifestyle, they are a great way to still enjoy a midweek tipple with dinner, without needing to open a whole 75cl bottle of wine,” says Julie Ashfield, managing director at the low-cost supermarket.

The health conscious among us know that official recommendations means than both men and women shouldn’t drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week – around six small glasses of wine.

The health conscious among us know that official recommendations means than both men and women shouldn’t drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week – around six small glasses of wine.

And it seems that Aldi have cottoned on to a trend, after Waitrose launched a similar range last year.

As part of its mid-tier Blueprint Wine range, the 37cl bottles includes a Rioja, a white Burgundy, a Pinot Grigio from Veneto, a reserve claret, an Argentine Malbec and a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – starting at £3.49.

Last year the Co-op supermarket also introduced 187ml wine pouches. Hoping to appeal to younger consumers the Sicilian Pinot Grigio and Mendoza Malbec were priced at £2.49.

In other Aldi news, this week the retailer also announced they’ll be selling a low cost version of Aperol. Priced at £6.99, its Aperini Italian Aperitif is less than half the price of Aperol.

With the weather starting to improve, hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy a glass in the sunshine soon.

Emily in Paris Fans Think Kim Cattrall Will Make an Appearance in Season 3

Published

on

instyle– Fans are speculating a major pop-culture crossover in season 3 of Emily in Paris. After Kim Cattrall infamously turned down the chance to revive her Sex and the City character, Samantha Jones, for the rebootfans couldn’t help but wonder if Jones could make an appearance in the next season of the cult-favorite Netflix show.

If you’re watching And Just Like That … (and even if you’re not), you know that Cattrall’s character is supposedly off working her public relationships magic in London, England, just a quick trip from Emily (Lily Collins) and her booming marketing firm, Savoir.

Fans noticed major parallels between the characters, from their location to their sex positivity to their career in communications. Plus, both series were created by big-time Hollywood producer Darren Star — with SATC costume designer Patricia Field now responsible for Emily’s kitschy, Parisian looks — making a collab that much more believable.

One Twitter user wrote, “Current theory: Samantha has supposedly moved overseas, hence her lack of presence in the new SATC TV series. Then she shows up by total surprise in a crossover episode of EMILY IN PARIS. I would watch Samantha try to tolerate Emily, 100 percent.”

Collins fueled the flames by teasing a possible season 3. The actress posted photographs from her Vogue Hong Kong cover featuring a jet-black shag haircut and dark makeup writing, “Season 3 pivot?? Who’s with me? …” Collins used the same caption when reposting a fan’s Tweet with the magazine images that read, “Emily in Berlin.”

Women Who Work Outside Road-Tested the Season’s Cutest Winter Coats

Published

on

If you’re in the market for a new winter coat, there’s no shortage of options out there. Fuzzy, puffy, water resistant, bright — whatever you want, a quick Google search will surely lead you to something that promises to be top-notch. But will it actually be warm and stand up to the elements? Ehh…that’s not always a guarantee. Some coats photograph well but turn out to be flimsier, breezier, or less precipitation-proof than they look.

This season, though, InStyle.com decided to take some of that risk out of the equation. We wanted honest coat reviews — ones that told us something that wasn’t in the product description. So, we recruited the help of five ‘cold professionals,’ AKA women who work outside as part of their job. We gave them one of the coats we’d been coveting, had them walk around in it for about an hour (while we snapped photos, of course), and then asked them questions to determine its overall rating, which accounts for warmth but also coolness.

Thankfully, this crew didn’t hold back and shared some solid advice for those wondering what jacket is really worth their money this winter.

Skims Isn’t Always Sold Out: These Thermal Leggings Are Available in Practically All Sizes Right Now

Published

on

Of the many fashion and beauty lines that members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have launched over the past few years, Kim Kardashian West’s Skims is undoubtedly one of the family’s biggest hits. Since its debut in 2019, the shapewear and loungewear brand has won rave reviews (and earned a whole lot of money) for its comfortable styles and inclusive sizing, and so it’s no wonder that its products often sell out super quickly. If you’ve been dying to try some items out for yourself but haven’t gotten the chance just yet, we’ve got good news: Skims Cotton Rib Thermal Leggings are available at Nordstrom in so many colors and size options right now.

For anyone not familiar with thermal leggings, they’re the best during winter (or any day when the AC is on too high, if we’re being real). They’re designed to retain your body heat and keep you warm, and the best ones do so while still being light enough to allow your skin to breathe. Skims’ thermal leggings are made with ribbed stretch cotton that hugs close to the body, yet doesn’t feel suffocating.
