Ever stand in front of the “Wall of Wine” in the store and wonder what you should get? Yes, we’ve all been there. Instead of looking dazed and confused, use the WineFinder app!


The Thumbs Up WineFinder app quickly matches you with the best wines in the store.




And seriously, it is that easy.  you just take a pic of what you are seeing and the app will tell you which wine to buy!  It literally takes all the confusion out of the process!  How cool is that?

It lets you know that you got an extraordinary value.  You get a quick snapshot of the wine’s profile and tells you what the wine is really worth before you buy it.  They also include easy to read wine reviews and you can text, email, facebook, and tweet all about your favorites!

 photo allstatelogo_300x60_zps5487a605.jpgLIfe is always interesting be it your home, in your school, or at your work.  However, to make one keep their sanity, you must celebrate moments of simplicity and contentment in life.  As hard as it may be, you have to get over the little trivial things that can happen on a daily basis that drive you crazy.  Inside you have to triumph over adversity, fear or doubt.

When I started this blog, I had no idea what I was doing.  Heck, I am still not an expert baker or cooker (though my kids tell me I am a good cooker all the time!).  However, I had to move beyond thinking I looked like an idiot with some of my recipes.  I had to realize that not everyone is going to like what I make.  However, I also had to get rid of the fear that all of my recipes were going to NOT turn out.  What surprised me the most was that most of my recipes do turn out.  Every so often I try something that doesn't win over my family. 

Granted, life isn't as simple as a cooking/foodie blog.  I know that.  However, if you can overcome small challenges like this, you too can have an Allstate Good Life

Tell me about some of your own good life stories in the comments!  How have you overcome adversity to live a good life?
