The cocktails

As you saw from the above photo there are many cocktails for you to try, and they do more than what I was sent just visit https://tonicathome.co.uk/collections/cocktails for a full list.

Now on to the cocktails….

Strawberry Daiquiri

I started with the Strawberry Daiquiri, and just like the packet says it was super easy to prepare.

I had to find a fancy glass in the house, so I could have a nice wee cocktail at home.

WOW this packed amazing flavour and am not just saying that, it was very very very nice and tasty!!

I really loved the flavour of this, and I could have easily had a second…and maybe a third

This one is a solid 5/5 for me.

Pina Colada Daiquiri

So after having the first one, and really loved it I had to prepare another one and this is the one I choose.

Just like the first the preparation was very easy, instructions super simple and it smelled so good….now the tasting time

Ok so I am not just saying that because these were sent to me, but WOW really WOW they are full of flavour and so so so delicious.

This one is a solid 5/5 for me.

Pornstar Martini

This was my drink of choice a few years back, and I could easily have many of these. It was easy to drink, and had great flavour so I couldn’t wait to try this one.⠀

This was just as good as I remembered, the flavour mmmm so so good!⠀

This brought back so many memories, and just like then I could have easily had more of these.

Espresso Martini

My second cocktail of choice ages ago was this one, and it just depended on how I was feeling that night if I wanted something sweet or this coffee cocktail.⠀

The smell of this was too good to be true, I could have easily smelt it for a while but it did have to be tried so…on to the tasting.⠀

WOW perfection! That’s all I can really say if you like Espresso Martini’s then this one is for you and you will LOVE this.

A solid 5/5

Starburst Martini⠀

This was a new one for me, and I didn’t really know what to think on how it would taste….maybe very sweet? Well it was time to find out.⠀

The smell of this was very nice, and very sweet which was perfect for me as I have sweet tooth so I couldn’t wait to try this.

This was very interesting, not as sweet as I thought it would be but still had a really nice flavour

This is one I would try again, as the more I had the more I liked it 🙂

There’s No Place Like Tonic

I have never heard of this one, so it was my last one and I couldn’t wait to try it.⠀

It smelled very very good, but how did it taste?⠀

This was very smooth and had a really good mango flavour mmmm it was perfection in a glass and another one I could have easily had more than just one off.⠀

This was another 5 out of 5

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the cocktails.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys for these amazing cocktails, all of them tasted amazing and I could have easily had double 🙂

Every single one of these cocktails was easy to prepare, smelled and tasted really good and I loved how you got the extra garnish to make them look great to.

These cocktails are mega tasty and I highly recommend their service! give the guys a message and order some and let me know what you think.

Man Behind the Mirror : Teeth Whitening Kit : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Man Behind the Mirror sent me their teeth whitening kit to try.

I have looked at teeth whitening kits in the past, but never got around to try one….not sure why as it was something that I really wanted to get to brighten my teeth.

I brush regularly and use mouthwash, but still they are never as bright as I would really like them.

This year I also started to reduce my intake of coffee and fizzy drinks like coke, one to try and improve my health and two to help reduce staining my teeth.

ABOUT them

Our at-home Teeth Whitening Kit is designed to visibly whiten your teeth in just 10 minutes, with a proven gel formulation that ensures zero sensitivity.

From £49.95

A SIMPLE 3-STEP WHITENING PROCESS

The Kit

The kit comes in a very nice box which looks really good before you even open it.

On opening its been designed to have two compartments, the top for the gel and the bottom for the device. I found this very cool, and found it very professional.

Getting started

The instruction guide is mega easy to follow, and I had no issues putting it all together and starting with the whitening process.

The two things that you should try and remember is

  1. Brush before using the kit
  2. Avoid dark coloured drinks like red wine, coffee, tea etc..

How I got on

I tried using the daily, but once or twice things got in the way and I forgot but for the most part it was daily use.

Here is a before and after of my teeth.

Not the most Instragramable photo but it does show the difference, and as you can see it did lighten them. Sorry for the lighter and darker pic, it took me a few times to get a clear photo that close.

Its a great product, as I even used this while I was deciding what to watch on Netflix a few times…its so simple to use.

Product Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the kit.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Man Behind The Mirror for the kit.

As you have read I had no issues with the kit, easy to use and setup and it did whiten my teeth which you can see from the before and after pic.

As you saw they are lighter, I think I would need a few more months use to get them to the shade I want but it did work! they did make them go a little lighter which is great 🙂

I have no issues recommending this product and for the price its definitely worth it.

The Woodside Place Cafe (West End, Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


It was nice being back in the West End, and tonight I was taking a visit to the Woodside Place Cafe as I was invited to come and get a wee delivery.

Venue

You go downstairs and in to the cafe, which has a really nice sitting area to eat which you can see from the photos.

On your left as you enter is where you can place your order.

This cafe had a really nice atmosphere to it, and looked very nice inside and I felt very relaxed when I was inside.

Vietnamese Caramel Glazed Pork Bun with sweet Potato Fries

Firstly how good does this look? And yes it smelled as good as it looked. 

This was a big burger, that was packed with flavour and every bite was just amazing. It was a juicy burger too, so you WILL need some napkins but aren’t all great burgers messy? Yup!

It was very filling and as I said had loads of flavour. ⠀

As you can see from the above photo, you get a good portion of fries.

These were really nice, they had a slight crispness to them and nice flavour…..and worked perfectly with the burger.⠀

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the burger and fries.

Firstly a big thanks to the Woodside Place Cafe for the burger.

This was a really nice, full of flavour and very filling burger and the side of sweet potato fries just added to that.

If your in the area or near, give the guys a call and place an order as I am sure you will really enjoy your meal as much as I did.
