Degustabox Opening

Hey Everyone!


So this month meant another Degustabox for me.  If you are unaware of what a Degustabox is, to sum it up, it is a box filled with food and drink from both new and developed brands.  A box is £12.99 including delivery which isn't a bad deal at all.  If you want to find out more about Degustabox click here to go directly to their website or here to their Twitter page.  Now let's get stuck into this months box...





Go! Kombucha

Kombucha tea is a tea filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which help cleanse and revitalise the body.  I've been really into my healthy teas this month (peppermint tea, green tea and camomile) so this will be excellent to try out.  




Dorset Cereals

Dorset Cereals is a brand I have spotted in supermarkets before and always have been curious about trying.  Their berry granola was included in this Degustabox and I must say it is delicious.  A perfect healthy way to start the day when topped with a little greek yoghurt.  


Goody Good Stuff

Goody Good Stuff are all natural, gelatine free gummy sweets which is perfect for you veggies out there.  The range is also free from gluten, soya, dairy and nuts and yet still tastes amazing - how??





Jules Destrooper

Okay probably my favourite thing in this months box has to be the Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps.  Being a sweet tooth, these were amazing to satisfy a craving and beautiful topped with a little toffee sauce.  Amazing.





Amy's Kitchen

With all the winter bugs floating around at the moment a nice tin of tomato soup is always a bonus.  I've recently been caught out by these bugs but the soup helped me feel a bit better in no time.  I love how food can have that affect. 


Quinola Mothergrain Express

I'll be honest, before today I had never heard of Quinola, and now I'm eager to try it.  Quinola is a source of vegetable protein with slow releasing proteins which is gluten free.  It sounds like a nice change from the usual pasta or rise.  


Maggi's

If you live in the UK, you've probably seen the Maggi's so juicy adverts at some point in your life.  Maggi's create delicious meats by flavouring them.  All you have to do is pop the meat in the bag and cook in the oven.  Simples.  


ZICO

ZICO is a brand I had heard of before, but wasn't too familiar with.  When it comes to coconut water I'm very loyal to Vita Coco.  ZICO's coconut water surprised me a little as it was chocolate flavour.  I'll be honest I wasn't keen.  But then again I'm not keen on cold chocolate drinks.  Different tastes I suppose.  






I hope you have all enjoyed this post and I will speak to you all shortly.

Pretty Little Liars Tag

Hey Everyone!

PLL (Pretty Little Liars) is one of my favourite TV shows of all time.  If you have never seen it, where have you been?  A few other lovely bloggers and myself decided to create a PLL tag because we love it so much and even have a cute little Whatsapp chat about it.  Ps go and check out these lovely ladies, KirstieEstelleGemmaRebecca and Tanyia.  We each came up with one question related to the show so lets take a look at them!





1) My Question: Alison made her return to rosewood in her statement red coat. What is your wardrobe statement piece?
I would probably have to go with my leather jacket.  I wear it pretty much everyday and I love the way it ties a whole outfit together.  I purchased it from Tesco a few moths ago and bagged myself a great bargain as it was only £32.  I love it!

2) Kirstie: If you could raid anyone's wardrobe who's would it be?
Oh this is a hard one.  I love all of their styles but I would probably have to go with Hanna.  Hanna always looks so fashionable and I often see pieces on her that I want. 


3) Rebecca: Which cast member would you go to if you had a problem?
Emily.  She is probably the most loyal of the group and is always kind and willing to help out the others. 

4) Estelle: Which character's personality do you think you most relate to? 
I think they are all such relatable characters but if I had to pick one it would probably be Hanna.  Hanna is sure of her own opinion and knows exactly what she thinks and doesn't let anyone change that.  She also can stress out and snap at people which I'm not going to lie, I would probably be like if I was put into her situation.  But she also cares so much for her friends, family, and still Caleb...(don't cry, don't cry).

5) Gemma: Which of the character's makeup would you most like to wear? 
Probably Emily's.  She always looks so naturally beautiful.  Nothing over the top or excessive.  Just enough to enhance her natural features which looks beautiful. 



6) Tanyia: Which of the cast would you feel safest with when stuck in an A situation?
Most likely Spencer.  She always seems to be spot on about A and what he/she is doing.  She's very smart so would easily deviate a solution to any problem.  




If you are a Pretty Little Liars fan like us, try this tag for yourself and let us know in the comments or on twitter your opinions.  I hope you all enjoyed this tag and I will speak to you all soon.

Busy Bee

Hey Everyone!

In one sense I want to start today's post for apologising for not blogging in ages.

But in the other sense, I don't.  Yes I would love to blog a little bit more than what I have been but my life has just been super busy but I'm not going to apologise for that.  I'm having an ace time.  I think far too many bloggers are too hard on themselves for not blogging all the time when its perfectly okay to go and live your life for a while.  If you can manage both then you deserve mounds of praise because it is actually very challanging.

I just thought I would give you a quick catch up of what has been going on in my life before I dive straight back into regular posts.

Access All ASOS


I was accepted to Access All ASOS about a month ago now and I'm loving it.  Insider gossip and news about one of my favourite stores?!  As well as meeting (online for now) so many new bloggers. I received a lovely little welcome package with a lipstick and midi rings - am I that predictable?

College 

College has been crazy recently.  I've had 5 assessments in the past 2 days.  What.  Nope.  Can't deal.

Work

Work's work, what else can I say really?  Busy as per usual.  


I started off this post with way more exciting things happening in my life and way better excuses for not blogging.  But actually, after college and work, I'm just exhausted.  Never mind.  I'm feeling motivated to be a better blogger.


Speak Soon,
Katie
