Saturday Night In

We are looking forward to another #SaturdayNightIn this weekend. X-Factor and Strictly are becoming one of our favourite parts of the week already, and they've just started.

We think #SaturdayNightIn is all about getting your best friends and family round and enjoying a few drinks at home with some nibbles. This week we are sharing another of our favourite cocktail recipes to inspire you to have a brilliant night in. This weeks cocktail is Smashed Raspberry Lemonade.

You will need:

60ml Triple Sec
60ml Limoncello
1 handful of raspberries
Juice of two lemons
SodaStream soda water
Sprinkle raw sugar

As always, bonus point to you if you serve your drinks in pretty glasses or jars - give your guests a different experience.

This recipe couldn't be any simpler. All you have to do is measure out each ingredient and stir them all together. Garnish with raspberries, lemons, blueberries or anything else you can find! 

Don't forget you can keep this as a non-alcoholic cocktail. Just leave out the Triple Sec and Limoncello and add some Diet Cranberry and Raspberry instead! Delicious. 

Do you like to have cosy weekends in for Autumn? Have you been watching Strictly or X-Factor? We are absolutely loving Pixie and Scott; can't wait to see them dance next week. Also, how amazing is it to see Cheryl back on X-Factor? Love her! Be sure to let us know your thoughts on both shows in the comments below. 

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Ps, as we are getting ready for many more #SaturdayNightsIn, we are giving you the chance to win a SodaStream cocktail pack! Head over to our Social Media platforms to enter :-)

Ladies Night In

Are you sad Summer is ending? Did you spend basically all of your money over the bank holiday weekend and still have a sad bank balance? Do you like to have fun?  ...Do you like to win?

If you've answered yes to the above then you are our friend! A lot of us have found ourselves feeling a bit fed up now September is here. Yes, we wished for the A/W2014 collections to be brought out and did get a little excited when we took our coats out of storage but, suddenly the thoughts of the darker months aren't so appealing.

Lunch Box Time

Lunchbox: Being Sugar Smart

Wow. That summer absolutely flew by! Can you believe it’s back to school time already? We know some parents will be jumping for joy as it is hard to constantly keep your little ones amused. However, back to school can also be a bit of a stressful time; buying uniforms, books, school bags. You’re probably giving lunch boxes some attention too. We all want our children to have nice, wholesome lunches during break at school, but often don’t really know what to put in them. There is nothing worse than seeing the lunch come home uneaten; you want them to enjoy their food and get all their nutrients but at the same time, don’t want to just give them junk food.

We also find this a challenge. We took some time over our fizz break today to exchange lunch box tips which we use for our own lunches and our kids, and how to be sugar smart. Check them out below:
