Feel Good Infusions – 100% Natural Summer Drinks

The Infusions range from Feel Good Drinks consists of lightly infused water to give it a gentle flavour using 100% natural ingredients.  A new addition to the Feel Good Drinks range are the infusions which sit alongside the other 100% natural still flavoured drinks and also the ones with a few bubbles.

The Infusions range consists of:

  • Lemon & Elderflower
  • Strawberry & Mint
  • Apple & Rose

Each just contains water and natural flavourings meaning they are only 5 calories per 100ml.

So what did we think of the Feel Good Drinks?

Well I had a bunch of family and friends around to try them out with me and the lighter infusions range definitely appealed to the females whilst the men preferred the standard still drinks such as Orange & Mango.

We all found the drinks to be incredibly refreshing and grown up in flavour with the subtle hints of interesting flavours.  Apple & Rose was my favourite with it’s delicate apple flavour and a hint of rose.  Best served chilled these flavours are definitely a twist on the usual flavours you see and were a pleasant experience on the palate.

Lemon & Elderflower proved one of the most popular combinations in our group of tasters, being a great drink for a Summers afternoon!

Have you had a chance to try these out yet?  I’ve spotted them in my local Morrison’s but believe they are also available at Asda, Sainsbury’s, Co-op and Waitrose so check them out if you are looking for something light, refreshing with a bit of a twist!

Alesha Dixon Rose Quartz Gift Set – Review

I love a good fragrance and am always drawn to anything with a hint of roses, so couldn’t wait to try Alesha Dixon’s Rose Quartz gift set containing a 100ml Eau de Toilette alongside a 100ml Body Lotion.

Alesha Dixon Rose QuartzThe gift set is boxed with the two products inside.  The perfume is called Rose Quartz which is known as the stone of love and aims to promote a feeling of self worth, postive thought and happiness.  It’s key notes are Bergamot, Jasmine and Patchouli along with a fusion of rose notes.

I have to say I was pleasantly impressed with the smell and absolutely adore it, so much that I have worn it everyday since.  It is fresh and bursting with roses without being too heavy, perfect for everyday wear.

Cupcake Masterclass at Mrs Brown’s

Last weekend I met up with 8 other Plymouth bloggers at Mrs Brown’s, a local bakery and decided to do a vintage cupcake masterclass.  I’ve always loved making cupcakes, although finding less time as the children get older and more demanding of my time.  I’m a huge buttercream fan and tend to stick to this as is easy to work with and tastes delicious so it was interesting to work with other types icing and learn how to create different effects.  I certainly picked up a few tips that I’ll be putting into practice the next time I bake.  Can you believe I decorated all the cakes below with my own fair hands!

cupcakes 2First off we learnt how to make an edible rose decoration.  Would you believe that you start with 11 little balls of icing and by using your fingers to flatten and mould they become petals which in turn become a finished rose.  Spray on a bit of silver lustre, add a sprinkling of pearlised balls and voila, my cake is done!

cupcakesWe then tried some other ideas before stopping for a break and trying a piece of a rather huge Victoria sponge cake, covered in chocolate coated strawberries, that Georgie (owner of Mrs Brown’s) had made for us.  We then went back to our decorating class before boxing up our four creations ready to take home.

cupcakes 1Going to the cupcake class really reignited my love of baking and although I have a hectic few months ahead, I do hope to try out some new things and bake more regularly in the future!
