I love a recipe box. There is something so lovely about having everything you need for meals delivered right to your door and when I found out about WW Smart Kitchen I couldn’t wait to try it. The thing that makes WW Smart Kitchen different from other recipe boxes is that it’s a partnership between Bearfaced Groceries and Weight Watcher, offering a great range of fresh food accompanied by recipe cards, all with clear calories and Smart Points so you know exactly what you’re eating.
WW Smart Kitchen comes well packaged and includes ice packs so that everything arrives ready to just be popped in the fridge. There’s a choice of three or five meals per box and with each meal to feed two or four people – we were sent a three meal box for four people to review so that we could still cook one meal each evening to enjoy as a family.

It’s been well documented on this blog – and across social media – that my Husband and I love gin. It’s our drink of choice and as much as we enjoy drinking gin based cocktails you really cannot beat a classic gin and tonic. We love finding new gins to try so when we were sent a bottle of Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin to try we couldn’t wait to get pouring!
The Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin is made at the Dunnet Bay Distillers in Scotland and the first batch was only distilled in August 2014 – so it’s still pretty new as far as gin is concerned. The distillery experimented with botanicals to find just the right blend and ended up with a mix of juniper berries, rhodiola rosea, sea buckthorn, rowan berries and a few other things to make a taste that is fresh and zesty, full of berries and wonderfully smooth to drink.

If there’s one thing we get through a lot of in our home it’s snacks. The children eat snacks constantly, we eat a lot of snacks and we’re always looking for healthier options when it comes to the snacks we eat as a family.
When Chewy Moon got in contact to introduce us to their snack box subscription service I couldn’t wait to try it. We love subscription boxes – there’s nothing like a box of surprises coming to your door regularly! Chewy Moon provide weekly Snack Boxes that contain five tasty but healthy snacks and come addressed to your child.

Although LP and Little Man don’t yet have packed lunches at school we are always going on days out and packing lunches for them to take with us. Little Man often has a packed lunch after nursery too – eating it wherever we end up or even in the car.
But, we always get stuck in a lunch rut, packing the same things – sandwich, fruit, crisps – and so we have been looking for ways of updating the lunches we pack, finding new things to include but most importantly finding new things to put in lunch boxes that the children will both enjoy and will have good nutritional value too.
Over the last few weeks we have discovered Soreen Lunchbox Loaves. As the name suggests, they are the perfect size for lunch boxes and come in a range of flavours – although the new Banana Lunchbox Loaves seem to be most popular with the children.

When I gave up my day job back in November I started a new routine. I’d take the children to school, go to the gym and then head to a coffee shop for a nice cup of tea and to get some blog work done. This routine has continued since then and I’ve now managed to try all of the coffee shops in my local town to find out whee has the best tea for both type of tea and the value for money.
