Conscious Chocolate – A Review

Never one to turn down chocolate I was very intrigued to try the offerings from Conscious Chocolate. As a general rule I don’t go too fancy with my chocolates, I prefer a good quality dark chocolate over a milk, but it tends to just be off the shelf from the supermarket and enjoyed of an evening.

Oxford Rye Organic Vodka

We have recently had the pleasure of trying Oxford Rye Organic Vodka, it’s a sublimely smooth drink and would make an excellent Father’s Day gift. I’ve enjoyed it over ice with a good tonic and played around with garnishes, finding that lime slices and and a few cranberries works nicely. Having thoroughly enjoyed it I’ve got some more information about this wonderful drink to share with you, so please read on.

Eco Friendly Firelighters fireDRagon

With barbecue season on it’s way, the weather must get better soon surely!

Emunity Detox Soft Drink Review

Just before L broke up for the Easter Holidays he trotted home telling me that you could actually eat Nettles! He was amazed. How do they not sting you? What do they taste like? Why would you want to? The timing was rather apt as I had just received my samples of Emunity, a detox health drink that contains Nettle for its healing and immunity-boosting benefits.
