May Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

May Degustabox

It definitely seems to be picnic season right now, so it was a great treat to receive a picnic themed May Degustabox. There were only a few brands that I had previously heard of in this one, so it was good to try some new brands and foods that I wouldn’t have considered before.

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

Our May favourites | Parties, LEGO, and fish

Our May - Parties, LEGO and fish

I can’t quite believe we’re now almost half way through the year – it seems to have gone seriously quick. I think probably because J has been at school and I’ve only had one child to contend with during the day. Apart from the mornings he is at pre school too, of course 🙂

Anyway, what did we get up to during May? Looking back, it was a busy one!

Bohns syn free rubs & spices | Review

Bohns rubs review

Just one of the great things about Slimming World is the fact I can eat as much lean meat as I like, and not have to worry about counting syns on it. Some ready prepared meats with flavourings are synnable (yes, that is a word in SW vocabulary) so I try to buy it plain and add my own syn free flavourings. Whether it be a pre-prepared spice mix or I mix my own; but recently I was sent some rubs & spices to try from Bohns. They are all syn free too which is great news for Slimming World followers!

Thomas Bohn has been on a quest across the globe and back in a search for the perfect mix of spices and seasoning able to elevate taste to new heights.

He left a boy and came back a man, a slightly heavier man full of the tastes of the finest slow cooked BBQ’s from the land of stars and stripes. Here he discovered the secrets to rubbing butt’s and adding spice to his life and his cooking.

In his experiences, the tastiest and most succulent meat is produced from slow cooking methods with spices, sauces and marinades generously applied giving taste sensations we only seem to experience in restaurants.

Now armed with these recipes learnt on the road and honed in the kitchen, Thomas Bohn brings you a range of rubs and spices guaranteed to add new dimensions to your meats, sauces, vegetables and dips.

Our April | Trains, crafts, and pre-school

Our April - trains, crafts, pre school

It’s a miracle – I’m actually writing our April favourites at the beginning of the following month, instead of the end! Now Noah has started pre-school, I have three mornings a week to get more work done – not that it’s actually happened, mind…

The first week of April was pretty jam packed. Half term had started and The Husband had a week off, so we had a few days out. He was back to work for the second week of half term so it was just me and the boys. We didn’t really go out anywhere (hello anxiety, and disliking taking them out on my own the majority of the time) but we had some fun outside and did some crafts. Then it was back to school for Jacob, and N’s first day of pre-school!

January Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

January Degustabox

It seems like ages since I last welcomed a Degustabox into my house. I think it’s because the Christmas one arrived a bit earlier than usual and this one a little later; not that I’m complaining, I always love the arrival of a new Degustabox!

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!

  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

January’s box included quite a few brands I had never heard of, with some I will certainly buy again. I did enjoy everything in it though.

December Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

Review - December Degustabox

I was really looking forward to the December Degustabox; well, I look forward to them all! There’s just something about receiving surprise packages in December though. It was like an extra bundle of presents! There was some nice Christmassy products in there this month too, which was a nice addition to my stockpile…
