I’m not a big drinker, so when I go out with friends, I usually turn to lime and soda, fruit juices, or if I’m feeling more ‘fancy’, mocktails. As a big fan of cherries (alongside lime and watermelon, they are my favourite fruit flavours), I thought I’d share a couple of delicious mocktail recipes with you to enjoy, especially if you’re as much of a fan as cherries as I am.
While up in Scotland in summer 2017, we paid Edinburgh a quick visit. It was super busy, due to the festival, and we were super hungry. We wanted to go somewhere nice with decent vegan options, so we looked on Happy Cow and found that there was a Dishoom in Edinburgh. We’d not been to Dishoom before, but some of our friends had really loved visiting the London branches. So we thought why not give it a go? Read on to find out what I chose from the vegan menu, and what I thought of it.
Have you heard of Friction Free Shaving* (FFS) before? They run a subscription service where you can subscribe to great value, German-engineered razors and blades, so you’re not left caught short on another sunny day. Read more to find out what the subscription includes, costs, and whether it’s worth the money.
These vegan biscuits made with Whittard’s orange and cardamom instant matcha tea* are easy to make and taste delicious. The matcha, combined with the taste of the orange and cardamom give a fruity, floral flavour, making them the perfect accompaniment to a cuppa, or to be served when guests are visiting. You really need to try baking them for yourself!
Essential oil diffusers have grown in popularity over the past year or so, and I’ve become pretty interested in them myself after seeing so many people enjoy using them at home. My only experience of using essential oils before had been way back in the 90s when my friends and I used to have ‘oil burners’ (usually from The Body Shop or a local ‘hippy shop’) in which we’d heat using tea lights. Thankfully, things have moved on from then!
The lovely people at Utama Spice got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review their ‘Danau’ essential oil diffuser, and also to give one away to readers of my blog – read on for my review, and also the details on how to win a ‘Danau’ diffuser of your own.
