Smile of the Week #43 - Autumn Special

12 comments
Hello my little poppets

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and had lots of fun, even if the weather was a little yack my weekend has been pretty decent, in fact I'd go as far to say it's been bloody brilliant. Friday was a relaxed day at work after a busy week and when I got home it got even better by Liam ordering us a Pizza Hut feast for the night - it was seriously SO good and of course I had my Crunchie. Saturday I was up early with Alfie as he only seems to sleep until around 7.30am bless him, we had playtime and cuddles then in the afternoon I went into town with my mum to have a little girly shop. I seriously think autumn clothes are so awful, full of dark colours everywhere which makes me sad, but I did get quite a few nice bits and bobs (those will be in a post later in the week). Of course Saturday night was spent in front of the tv watching The X Factor, yes I am slowly becoming hooked on it and have a few favourites already in mind that I hope make it to the live shows. Sunday the day of rest, yeah right, not anymore! Liam got up with Alfie early which meant I could have a little extra in bed, we had a naughty puppy on our hands for the morning, but then had an afternoon full of visitors, my parents, my uncle, my cousin and her little girl came down - mad house but Aflie loved it having lots of fuss. The night was spent relaxing on the sofa, catching up on reading my favourite blogs and getting cosy and snug as the rain pelted down outside and on the windows, it is so relaxing though right?

So now I've shared my weekend with you all let's get onto this weeks Smile of the Week, instead of a nice quote I thought I'd share with you all what Autumn means to me in photos. Seeing as though the mornings are cold and dark, the leaves are falling off of the trees, the rain is becoming more frequent and the cosy socks and slippers are hitting the shops to me it is officially Autumn.

Product Review: MyMocktail WooWoo & Pina Colada

5 comments
Hello cocktail pops

Today I have a product review for you all and I am sure that those of you who love a good cocktail or two will enjoy this very much! I was recently contacted to see if I'd be interested in trying out and reviewing two new MyMocktail non-alcoholic drinks those being the 'WooWoo*' and 'Pina Colada*', I obviously said I'd be delighted as they both sounded very yummy.

To start off with one of the cartons got damaged during delivery but a quick email to inform the company and the problem was fixed within days and I had a replacement sent straight away to enjoy, brilliant customer service.

Onto the actual products, now I am not the worlds biggest drinker, in fact I hardly ever drink at all now and when I do I tend to stick to the same drink, that being Archers and Lemonade - yummy. So these drinks were perfect for me to enjoy as an alternative to an alcoholic drink, but you can simply add in a splash of Vokda to make the Woo Woo alcoholic or a splash of Rum to make the Pina Colada alcoholic.

The Woo Woo is a gorgeous berry red colour and I could instantly taste the cranberries as soon as I'd had a sip from the glass, it is very sweet with a slight twang at the end because of the cranberries, perfect to drink on a warm summers night with a bbq.

The Pina Colada is a summery yellow colour and is very sweet and a little too sickly for me, but that is purely because I am not 100% fond of having coconut in a drink for some reason, but the pineapple flavour comes through and makes it really refreshing.

I love the packaging of these products as they are eye catching and they'd easily stand out on the shelf in the supermarket, the fruits used on the front of each carton are a true representation of the flavours within the drinks and gives them a summery feel.

Do you think you'd buy any of these to enjoy on their own or as a quick and easy alcoholic cocktail?
