Esthechoc – Chocolate Golden Skin Programme

Oooh… chocolate… TICK… golden skin… TICK… this sounds pretty good, right? I was approached to review this product, completely impartially (as always) and I must note that this is not a paid review.

I thought this would be a good product to review as even at the age of 31 my skin still thinks I am a vibrant teen and I do suffer from skin problems (mainly chin based). Boo and hiss. I’ve tried countless antibiotics, ointments, tablets, creams, contraceptives blahblahblah for years to try and calm it down but not much works (well, one contraceptive did help a bit but it made me go a bit nutso with moods so I stopped that as one doesn’t like being angry 98% of the time) so I thought perhaps this chocco will make a difference. Plus, I am not going to turn down eating a little choccy bar every day for 3 weeks especially if it has the potential for skin benefits!

Cadbury Dairy Milk – Tiffin Bar

If you don’t know who Cadbury are then you really need to get back in your bunker and go back to being a mole man/woman. Right. Now we’ve established that those of you left reading do indeed know who this chocolate giant are, we can continue. Ain’t nobody got time to go into the history of Cadbrizzle (look, I am hip and cool …broadening the reach of this blog with my lingo)… so I’ll just say what this post is about. Drumroll please……. it;’s about the new Tiffin Bar. Huzzay!

Orangina for Summer 2017

“Is Summer over?” is the question the UK has been asking since…well… February nearly! However we do still get the odd sunny day and Orangina has you sorted for when the sun is out, or if you want to imagine a bit of Summer is with you.

Their 2017 bottle range is super cute featuring two beach outfits for their bottles. I even have a bit of outfit envy from these babes. How is that possible? They’re bottles, ffs!

Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste – Peanut Caramel Crisp

April! Easter! Eggs! Rain!

Wait…no…we have something better for you. This month saw the launch of a new product from Cadburys…the new Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp. The introduction of this peanut focused slab is brilliant for me as a big peanut fan and when they say Big Taste, Cadbury aren’t messing around! This is a £278g bar (big) which is sold for a not crazy £3.49 and that’s only the approximate  cost of one flavoured latte.

Starbucks – Unicorn Frappuccino

So if you’re part of the internet I can guarantee you’ve seen the Unicorn Frappuccino, a limited edition drink handed to us by Starbucks. It’s only available in America and it’s just fortunate basic bitch timing for me that, as a Londoner, I’m in San Francisco for the 4 days it’s available.

Apart from being perfect Instagram fodder, what is this drink? We’ve seen articles about how much the baristas hate it, how it tastes awful and how your teeth will fall out as soon as they come within a meter of this sparkly beverage. So I had to get one!

Spicer + Cole – Queen Square, Bristol

Ooo arr! We’re in the West Country, Bristol to be specific, and it’s BRUNCHTIME following a 30th birthday party. A little dozy and worse for wear, we are wandering Bristol without aim….luckily, we’ve found a brunch spot not far away from the city centre and our hotel. Hooray! It looks safe and there are spare seats, so we step inside.

The menu looked pretty interesting, offering the standard kind of things you’d expect to see in a brunch spot, but my bruncheon of choice was the Harissa Bap. Specifically, the menu read “Bacon house harissa + aioli bap with a poached egg” – interesting. Bit different to my go-to of eggs benedict or something avocado-looking. Continue reading

Teapigs – Matcha Drinks

Just before Christmas I arrived home to find one of those “sorry we missed you” cards from Royal Mail on my mat. Assuming this was a festive gift from a mysterious admirer (obviously). I got up early the following day to get to the post office before work on the last Friday before Christmas. After queuing up I had to convince the lady to give me the package as the name on my ID (unsurprisingly) does not read “Fork My Piehole”  (she was giving me a knowing smirk during this exchange but I decided not to ruin the illusion by telling her that it is the name of our blog, not whatever less savoury thing she had in mind).
