Exploring The Wilds

9 months ago

{by alicia} We're huge animal lovers here at Wander & Whine, so when I finagled some tickets to The Wilds, it was like Christmas and our birthdays rolled into one. I mean, an open-air safari tour to see rhinos, giraffes, big cats, and more? COUNT US IN. (Ignore the fact Alexis is petrified of jungle cats. More on that later.) (more…)

The BIA Parade of Homes

9 months ago

{by alexis} Since we moved into our house a year ago (a year!), I've been working hard to transform it from a house rented by lazy college students to a house lived in by adults. It's been a slow process, but we're making progress. Last month, the folks at the BIA Parade of Homes reached out to invite us to the neighborhood, and I knew[...]

Ye Olde Mill – Velvet Ice Cream

10 months ago

{by alicia} Earlier this summer, Velvet Ice Cream invited a slew of bloggers to check out their digs in Utica, Ohio.

Ohio Pork + Le Creuset Giveaway

10 months ago

{by alicia} Though it seems all we do is flit around town eating at restaurants; we actually spend a lot of time cooking at home. So when the Ohio Pork Council reached out and asked we share our favorite recipe involving "the other white meat," it was no-brainer! (more…)

Macy’s Cosmetic Department Renovation

12 months ago

{by alexis} We don’t write it about it often on the blog, but shopping is definitely a hobby for both me and Alicia. Wait, who am I kidding? Trips are excuses for a new capsule wardrobe, and any big sale is an excuse for a favorite finds post (keep your eye out for our picks from this month’s big fall event!). So naturally, we were[...]

Latherology Giveaway

12 months ago

{by alicia} Alexis and I are the first to admit we're a little bossy. We like things to be a certain way, and we have a lot of feelings. As a result, we tend to prefer anything that can be customized and tailored to our every whim. So when Latherology, a local hair care company, approached us about trying their products, we were thrilled because their business[...]

Sweets from Winans Chocolates

1 year ago

{by alexis} Alicia and I often find ourselves in various snack shops on our lunch breaks -- 7-11s, gas stations, student centers, we're not picky! So when Winans Chocolates, a local chocolatier, offered to send us a treat or two, we were pretty psyched to upgrade our mid-day munchies. I've been buying Winans as gifts for years -- my mother-in-law is a big fan of[...]

Ohio Wine Month

1 year ago

{by alicia} You heard right. June is Ohio Wine Month, and since we'll take any excuse to have an extra glass (or three), we celebrated by trying the entire menu at Quail Crossing Cellars Winery. Total disclaimer: the kind people at the Ohio Grape Industries Committee / Hello CLE offered us a gift card to visit an Ohio winery, so though they provided the means, all[...]

Dragoon’s Punch

{by alexis} I miss a lot of things about our vacation in the South: the breeze from the rivers, the historical homes, the grits -- but more than anything else, I miss a strictly observed daily happy hour. I know I haven't posted about Charleston yet (it's coming!), but my absolute favorite new discovery came from Husk. There's a lot of buzz about Husk, but[...]

DoorDash Columbus

We're big fans of anything that makes our lives easier, especially when that involves food! So when DoorDash reached and asked us to try their new food delivery service we agreed sooner than you can download a menu from a website! And this time, rather than hoarding our treats in our usual, two-person cave, we decided to share the wealth with our book club. We're friendly[...]
