Last weekend, my mother and I were immersed in the world of Arabian nights when we went to see Aladdin the musical as a birthday treat for me. I booked through Travelzoo for a Friday night stay at London Tower Hotel and an evening show of Aladdin. Breakfast was included in the price for £179 each for the hotel and the theatre show. I have seen quite a lot of musicals over the years, so was intrigued to see how I would compare this show to the others that I have seen.
I recently worked with BarleyCup, which is an instant cereal drink made from natural ingredients. Their products are gluten free, vegan and caffeine free! I was interested to try these as an alternative to my usual cups of tea! I conducted a little experiment with some ladies from my dance class as well as family members to see whether they could taste any difference to their usual hot beverages.
I recently got in touch with a company called FoodAdvisr who have created an app where you can scan products when you are out and about and according to your selected intolerances, will give you a run down of the ingredients so you can see before purchasing. This week I tried out the app. Here are my thoughts!
This week, I decided to be “chewsy”, and try out some new gum! Whenever I chew gum, I am reminded of the days when I used to wear braces, so chewing any gum or sticky chewy sweets was a big no no. The longing I felt when everyone else was chewing gum and stuffing their faces with chewy fruitellas, wine gums and chewitts!
I was lucky enough to receive a cake in a tin last week from a company called Chacon Cakes, who are based in South West London. All cakes are made in a completely gluten free environment and the company specialises in making beautiful mini cakes, that you can create yourself too. I chose to have a chocolate cake base, with the first filling of vanilla cream and the second filling with chocolate ganache. The topping was white chocolate.
