LOVE IS IN THE AIR WITH WHITTARD’S CHOICE OF VALENTINE GIFTS..

With Valentine’s Day around the corner it’s nice to think of something different to give to the one you love. Well, how about some unique Valentine gifts from Whittard’s –

Limited Edition Chocolate Cherry Brownie Flavour Hot Chocolate – Imagine warm, melt-in-the-middle brownies fresh out of the oven, magicked into a heavenly hot chocolate. This is it. With flavours of ultra-chocolatey brownie and fruity cherry layered on a classic Luxury base, our deliciously decadent Chocolate Cherry Brownie is love at first sip. Tuck in…@£9

The Recipe for Romance Gift Box – A special edition Valentine’s medium roast coffee, Let Love Brew, our Dark Chocolate Loose Tea, and our latest limited edition hot chocolate, Chocolate Cherry Brownie, at £29.00

Limited Edition Let Love Brew Ground Coffee Caddy – Presented in a special edition Valentine’s tin, Let Love Brew is a marriage of milk chocolate and fruity cherry notes, medium roasted for depth of flavour. A roast with romance, this irresistible Brazilian cup is best shared with a fellow coffee lover, at £12

Be My Valentine Gift Box – Love can be found in the simplest of places – like a soothing cup of tea. This set combines two favourites: our Dark Chocolate Loose Tea, a blend of black tea from India and Indonesia with a (very) generous helping of cocoa nibs, and our sleek Glass Pao Infuser Mug, ideal for keeping tea toasty, at £26.00

VALENTINE’S DAY THEMED AFTERNOON TEAS…

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I was interested to see if venues were theming their afternoon teas around Valentines Day. Well, lot’s are and the best place to find them is on the Afternoon Tea’s site.

They start from £18.95 – £75.00 ( some are per couple and others are pp) and they have a choice of 70 on their site. 

One of my favourites on the list and also one of the most expensive ones are at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel London who is promoting a Valentine Prosecco Afternoon Tea for Two and Dirty Dancing Screening.

They say “Spoil your loved one this Valentine’s to a luxurious Prosecco Afternoon Tea followed by a screening of the timeless classic, Dirty Dancing. Have the time of your life with that special someone in this romantic experience available on 18th February.

The Afternoon Tea features a selection of handcrafted delicate cakes and sweets, mini rich butter fruit scones served with fruit preserves and Devonshire clotted cream, and traditional finger sandwiches. Afternoon Tea can be booked between 12:00 and 15:00 with the screening of the film starting at 4pm.

Sunborn Yacht Hotel London offers a first-class destination to indulge in Afternoon Tea. This hotel is set in a yacht that is permanently moored in the Royal Victoria Dock. 

This impressive 108-metre floating hotel possesses stunning views of Canary Wharf and the surrounding Docklands.

Afternoon Tea is served in their sophisticated Lands End restaurant.”   More about Sunborn Yacht Hotel London.

I’VE ONLY GONE AND DONE IT…

cards-by-barmachand-made-with-love-1

I’ve only gone and done what my other half has been telling me to do for a while, and opened an Etsy shop with my hand made cards.

I’ve been making hand made cards for years but have only sold them in a local Post Office and given them to friends and family. But because I love making them so much I have quite a lot of them and my husband has been saying for a while that I ought to open an online shop with my cards.

I knew I quite fancied the idea but felt that the competition was so great that maybe it wasn’t worth the effort. But I have finally made the leap and opened up Cards By Barmac on Etsy.

So here are a few made earlier. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated, just as long as it’s good. No, only joking the more reviews I get the harder I will try.
