A Perfect Summer Picnic....Galvanina

It is just the right weather for a perfect picnic, and I adore picnics, they have to be one of my favourite things to do when the sun is out. I was contacted to review a new drink, I was happy to accept and when the parcel came I was so excited!
 
Galvanina are a brand who produce organic Italian fizzy drinks, they come in a beautiful bottle which you can use again and again. The flavours available are Sicilian Lemon, Sicilian Clementine, Sicilian Ruby Orange and Grapefruit. I am not normally a huge fan of fizzy drinks as hate the feeling it can leave on my teeth, but these don't, they taste scrummy and are super refreshing. These are perfect for cocktails and mocktails, my husband has already delved into making some using these drinks and they came out so tasty! I have a picnic planned soon so will be taking a few of these, they are available in large family sized bottles or small ones you can take in your handbag.

The don't taste artificial and are organic which is an added bonus. I would love to see more flavours come out as really enjoyed these.

If like me you aren't a fan of grapefruit but like the Italian Aperitif drink then you will love the red grapefruit, it reminds me of being back home in Italy, with a wedge of orange and some Italian snacks after.

They kindly sent me this book to enjoy with my drinks, it makes me feel like I am in Italy.

OOTD: Topshop Loving

It was such a sunny day so had to style my bump to help me along as get pretty stuck when I look at my wardrobe every morning, here I am using a dress from Topshop which is not maternity wear so can be worn with or without baby bump. It is such a great dress to throw on, its floaty fabric means it keeps you cool and you can dress up or down.
 
I teamed the dress with some grey heels from Matalan.

OOTD: That Casual Feeling



The sun was out and I was feeling super happy to be spending the day with one of my best friends! We planned to go out for the day for food and lots of giggles, we did think of shopping too but that never happened as food just took over! We went to a gorgeous vegan restaurant, I am not vegan but adore healthy vegan food. 

My friend agreed to take some photos, we laughed the whole way through so am sure you can see that in the photos! You may or may not know that I am pregnant, so currently I am 19 weeks and want a wardrobe to work for both being pregnant and after so have been trying to wear items that I have already which can work for me and my bump. If you didn't know I have a youtube and have shown a haul of items I have purchased that are not maternity wear which can work for me now, during and after pregnancy.
