TAPP’D COCKTAILS // PRODUCT REVIEW

If you’re as much of a social media addict as I am, then I’m sure over the last few months at some point you would’ve seen Tapp’d appear on your news feed somewhere. It’s hard to escape these guys when they have the likes of Kate Wright & Rio Ferdinand, Denise Van Outen ordering regularly, to name a few. For those not so much on social media, perhaps you caught Tapp’d making an appearance on none other than This Morning, where Phil & Holly sampled their cocktails.

I have seen this company all over my social media feeds but had never really considered ordering from them (I’m more of a make-it-yourself-er) so when Tapp’d got in contact, I was thrilled! They offer a variety of cocktails which are easily ordered online, & they also offer same day delivery (please check this before placing your order as there is an extra cost). Ideal if you fancy a treat, or perhaps if you’re laying on a bit of an occasion – I’ve seen plenty of posts where the cocktails have been paired up alongside afternoon teas.

So I was lucky enough to receive a mixed box of cocktails, which consisted of;
– Espresso Martini
– Mojito
– Sex On The Beach
– Strawberry Daiquiri
– Pornstar Martini x2

Each & every cocktail was sensational! They really were delicious, they didn’t last us any longer than about an hour (terrible, I know!) but I can see why the cocktails have proved to be so popular. In particular, I was extremely impressed with the Espresso Martini – the cocktail had a deep vanilla taste to it, it was absolutely gorgeous! I would 100% order an entire case of just these. I also loved the fact that the SOTB cocktail was glittery (perfect for Boomeranging!)

I would definitely recommend checking Tapp’d out, & if you can, get some ordered in – the cocktails were genuinely lush, & their popularity among the famous names says it all. I look forward to sipping in the near future! [GIFTED] 

POSITIVE PARCEL // PRODUCT REVIEW

I’ve recently had the pleasure of receiving a gorgeous & very heartwarming box from none other than Positive Parcel. As the name clearly suggests, they exist to spread little boxes of positivity. The perfect pick me up for yourself, or just a little reminder to someone close that you’re thinking of them, or simply sending them a little smile. The box is made up of some yummy treats, these include 2 homemade chocolates from Positive Parcel (white chocolate, which is delicious), plus some Happy Tea from Teapigs. Receiving this actually allowed me to try Teapigs for the first time & I was v impressed! A subtle lemon tea that can lift your mood. The other bits in the box are sadly not edible, all very lovely nonetheless. The other items include a Relax Candle (this smelt absolutely amazing, I could smell it as soon as I’d unwrapped the post packaging, not the box!!), The Happy Newspaper, which features plenty of happy & uplifting news, Sticky Notes, (because when are sticky notes not useful?!) & a very calming colouring in sheet. I absolutely loved receiving my Positive Parcel, & it brought a genuine smile to my face. Help spread the joy & send a parcel yourself, at £17.99 with 10% of profits go to mental health charity Mind, too. 
Thank you very much to @positive_parcel for bringing a smile straight to my doorstep 🙂 [GIFTED]

AWFULLY POSH LOMO CRISPS // PRODUCT REVIEW

Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to receive a box of very posh & very fancy Lomo Crisps from Awfully Posh. At first glance, these crisps look very funky, almost a ray of sunshine with their fantastically bright packaging, as for the crisps themselves, well, they’re certainly not your average looking crisp!
As expected, these crisps were very posh indeed. Made from Spanish Pork Loin (one of the finest, if not the finest, cuts of pork), the crisps are cured with a blend of paprika & garlic to really bring out the flavour of the meat, then finally thinly sliced & air dried ready for consumption! The crisps are also high in protein, yet low in carbs (HOORAH!), & are Keto/Atkins diet-friendly, making them perfect for an afternoon snack, or a post-gym treat. What more could you ask for from a crisp I ask you?!

I loved these ‘crisps’, I am a tapas-fiend & these little bites of goodness oozed a gorgeous, summery, tapas-y vibe. Truly flavoursome, they are perfect served alongside some fresh olives & manchego (a jug of sangria wouldn’t go amiss either!) Personally, I wouldn’t reach for these as a crisp-y snack, over a bag of crisps over lunch, just my personal preference as I didn’t find them very filling, but I would hands-down serve up for perhaps a tapas themed dinner, or even as a picnic snack in the summer months. They are certainly something very different, & well worth trying, especially if you’re a fan of parma/Iberian hams. 

Now, as these crisps are exceptionally posh, they will set you back £23.99 for a box of ten, HOWEVER, they will provide you with a taste of Spain, & in comparison to the price of a plane ticket, this is nothing, & you won’t have to quarantine after eating these either! There’s also a chance to BAG YOURSELF A BOX of these babies as I’ve paired up with Awfully Posh to bring one of you the chance of winning a box, simply check out my previous post on Instagram on Awfully Posh & get yourself entered.

Crisps can be brought directly from https://www.britishsnackco.com/store/product/lomo-crisps-10-x-25g/. & don’t forget, The Awfully Posh range also includes Pork Puffs, Pork Scratchings and Pork Crackling. All of which are awfully posh of course!
