Funkin Cocktail Mixers

May 10, 2015 admin 8

Back in February I had the honour of interviewing the legendary DJ goldirocks who is also the brand ambassador for Funkin cocktails. To repay the favour for a brilliant interview I thought it only fair to put the cocktails through their paces and tell you all about them. The best way to review cocktails of course is to throw a party, so that’s what I did. I enlisted the help of one of my best […]

Body Chef day 3 and 4 – the diet continues

May 7, 2015 admin 0

Day 3 Ok so I’m five days into the bodychef plan and I haven’t starved to death yet. I’m also still following the diet which has got to be a record for me, normally by day five, scrap that day 2 I have succumbed to the temptation of the biscuit tin, or at this time of year the unfinished selection boxes hidden at the back of the cupboard. Tonight I even went out to a […]

Betty Hula – Review

May 7, 2015 admin 0

I have been lucky enough to sample so many different products that I might not normally have  tried. The most recent brand to get in touch and ask me to try out their products is Betty Hula and was delighted at  the opportunity. A cuple of weeks after discussing this […]

Boomf – photos on marshmallows!

May 6, 2015 admin 6

This has got to be the most bizarre confectionary I have ever come across. Marshmallows with photographs on – completely bonkers. Yet it totally works. Why? Because we live in a society that is obsessed with personalisation, selfies and food. When I first discovered Boomf I was instantly transported to Willy Wonkers factory, because, let’s face it, who else could dream this up? Well that dreamer was James Middleton, who along with business partner Andy […]

Bodychef January Journey

May 4, 2015 admin 6

My Bodychef experience. The Christmas bulge has finally gotten the better of me. My work pants are starting to feel tight and trying to get into my skinny jeans involves a somewhat embarrassing impression of a caterpillar trying to dance. Action is required. Whoever told me the Christmas pudding calories didn’t count because it was Christmas was seriously delusional. They definitely counted, maybe even twice! So, what diet to do? Well, I shopped around and […]

Fluers naturals candle

April 30, 2015 admin 3

I ADORE candles. Scented, coloured, tea lights, glass jar, floating, I try them all. There is just something about candles that calms me down and helps me relax, and of course candlelight is the most forgiving light of all. My other, ever increasing, obsession is with organic and eco-friendly products. The more I review the more I learn and I simply can’t get enough. So you can imagine my elation at being sent some fleur […]
