Need to add some "oomph" to your Valentine's Day 'do? Desiring a little more wine with your wine-and-dine? In the mood for an at-home cocktail? Once again, OnMilwaukee.com is here to steer you in the right direction.
SHE by SO.CAP.USA – It's hardly a secret that most models, pop stars and reality divas rely on some sort of "weave" to give their hairdos more oomph. When my stepdaughter started rockin' clip-in extensions at 14, I thought the world was ending. It's taken me a while, but I finally experienced just why (falsely) full-haired goddesses love to add volume, length and color with temporary extensions. Perfect for special occasions like a Valentine's Day date, clip-in extensions like the ones I received from SHE by SO.CAP.USA are a great way to add glamour without damaging your natural hair. Available through salons only, each package comes with three "wefts" of human hair that can be strategically clipped in and styled just like the hair attached to your head. Match your hair color to add virtually undetectable length and volume or use a contrasting shade to create highlights and/or lowlights without bleach-induced wreckage. I was super surprised at just how easy SHE by SO.CAP.USA clip-ins were to use. I thought I was going to need major assistance, but these are so user-friendly, even the hair-impaired (like me) can do it!

Yarden Mount Hermon Red 2010 – Israeli wine is something of a blank canvas for me. So, I guess it's a good thing I started with this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from what is apparently recognized at Israel's first world-class wine producer, Golan Heights Winery, situated from 1,300 feet to 3,900 feet above sea level. This vintage is a peppery, mouthy red packed with cherry and raspberry flavors. Its medium body and deep red flavor are pleasing and though its already a good, drinkable wine with red meats and pastas, some have suggested it might get a bit better still after a few years on the rack. Unsurprisingly, the Mount Hermon Red, from Galilee, is kosher, too. – Bobby Tanzilo
OR-G Vodka – Sweet drinks can be hit or miss, but OR-G vodka does it well. Flavored with persimmon, papaya, mango and lime, it's a tart and fruity liqueur/spirit that works well solo or mixed. And with all the tropical flavors packed into the bottle, mixing is an easy task for even the most novice "home bartender." For more sweetness and an extra kick, try an OR-G Foreplay, a three-to-one ratio of moscato and OR-G served in a glass with your fruit of choice. – Renee Lorenz
