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]

POP! PEANUT BARS // PRODUCT REVIEW

A little while back we very kindly received a box full of POP goodies! The box contained a variety of POP peanut bars, flavours including raisin & dark chocolate, peanut butter & dark chocolate, & coconut.

Each of the bars were delicious & crunchy, & made a fantastic mid morning snack, thanks to them being fabulously filling!

We also LOVED the packaging & the branding behind POP – the bright colours are very appealing, & very striking – you would definitely spot the bars on a shop shelf!

Thank you to the team at POP for getting these out to us – we are excited to these guys grow!

BAHLSEN PICK UP! BARS // PRODUCT REVIEWS

A little while back we were gifted with a handful of packs of Bahlsen’s Pick Up! bars. The bars are made up of a biscuit outer layer filled with a chunky slab of chocolate – delicious!

These were not something I’d tried before but am now addicted to! They’ve become a staple in the home treat cupboard as well as a little office pick me up. They are the perfect size too, & compliment a cup of tea very well. These will certainly be purchased again – I’ve seen them on offer in Tesco for a pound so it’s a no brainer really. Many thanks to both Bahlsen & Taste PR for getting these out to us!
