You already know who it is. This bloody sheep haunts my dreams; by the time we were done with him (at around 3/4 months) his fur was matted, his batteries were falling out, and he smelt like very questionable baby vomit. But, I think he might have been a lifesaver.

If you’ve ever been employed around Christmas time, you’ll know that work Christmas parties are a thing at pretty much every job ever, especially office jobs. Usually working in hospitality, the bars I’ve worked at…

Riverford have vegan, vegetarian and omnivore options, seperated into simple or more elaborate recipes, designed to match whatever you’re after. We got one simple vegan which took 30 minutes, and one foodie vegan which took 60 minutes. I would usually turn my nose up at spending 60 entire minutes in the kitchen, but me and Danny cooked that one together and it was actually a really nice activity to do as a couple – look at Riverford, bringing us closer together! I’m only being semi-sarcastic, it was honestly really fun.

So, in your monthly box, you get 2 gins and 2 tonics that perfectly complement the gin, which makes 4 G&T’s in total (or 2 big ones if you’re me). I love that they match the mixer to the gin for you, because as mentioned before, I love trying new brands but I’m never sure which tonic flavour would accompany each gin the best.

The box also comes with a little recipe booklet, complete with the backstory of each bottle, and what the perfect serve/garnish is. Nothing too fancy – all I was advised to garnish with this month was grapefruit peel, fresh mint, a lime wedge, or orange peel. We usually have some kind of citrus fruit in the house anyway so with garnishes I tend to just go with what we’ve got rather than buying things especially for my drinks.

Recently, I had a bout of Very Bad Anxiety. I say recently, it’s actually still going on. About four days into this breakdown, my beautiful boyfriend Danny, bless his heart, came home from work with a bag full of LUSH products that he had spent his birthday money on, because he is the sweetest man in the world and I do not deserve him in the slightest. Thought I’d do a little debrief of what exactly he bought, and why these products in particular are a little bit better than your average bath bomb for relaxation and chill.
