Liptonic & Water

Hi, everyone! How are you doing today? So, of course the amazing weather didn’t come to last more than 48h. Are we happy with that? No! Do we miss the pollens in the air and swollen face? No! So, I guess I can’t complain much, but I do hope the weekend will turn out to be a little better! Do you have any plans for yours already? Let me know!

Let’s continue talking about my favourite drinks! I wrote about Innocent smoothies and Cubanisto and Hoegaarden, if you still haven’t tried them, shame on you! Right, so this one is a weird combination for sure. But I had to talk about Liptonic, because I have never seen it anywhere else other than in France, and I’ve been wondering if any of you have tried this before! I discovered this Lipton Sparkly Ice Tea because my boyfriend was obsessed with it last year. I don’t like Ice Tea, but I love anything sparkly so I gave it a go and was quite surprised! The taste is exactly the same but with bubbles. And the bubbles make a huge difference! You know, at least for me! Go ahead and try it, and thank me later!

Also, to end this segment on my favourite different and exciting drinks, I HAD to talk about water. And I love water. I actually drink about 2.5lt of water a day, and I love it! Does this make me sound nuts? I mean, I gave you Cubanisto and Liptonic and smoothies and super juices, and here I am, talking about water. I mean, I really do love it, even though I have a few quirks about how I like my water. Here we go: I like my water from the fridge. Ehm, yeah. All year round. I cannot have water otherwise. If it’s not cold enough, I can’t drink it. And I don’t mind drinking from the tap if it’s good – I grew up drinking from the tap because we have really good water where I was raised. The thing about getting water from the tap is it’s usually not cold enough for me, and if I’ll make the effort of drinking it, I need to open the facet full on, all the beautiful pressure coming off, and that’s the only way I accept having a full glass of water. My boyfriend thinks I’m crazy and he’s tried fooling me with non-full-on-pressured water – na-ah! I know the difference!

I feel like I rambled so much about water and this is probably making me an official crazy lady, so I’ll stop here. But hey, water is great, water is the best! What about you? Any quirks? Any preferences? Any drinks you just love? Let me know!

Happy hydrating, catreaders!

Cubanisto & Hoegaarden – My summer drinks

Hello, beauties! How are you doing? It’s Wednesday, which means only 2 more days till the weekend! I really hope the weather continues this amazing, otherwise we won’t be able to walk around and visit the castles during the weekend! How is your week going so far?

So, we’ll continue to talk about some of my favourite drinks, if you haven’t read the Innocent post, go ahead! And today, I’ll be talking about Cubanisto and Hoegaarden. Cubanisto is a rum flavoured beer. I love rum and I love beer, so what could be better than these two together?

They come in these super cool bottles, where you can see the eyes of the skull through the front of the bottle but they’re actually printed at the back. Cool illusion, I say! Moreover, they glow in the dark, wait, what? Yes! They GLOW in the dark! And they taste amazing! Trust me! Go and get one, right now!

Ok, so I’m also completely addicted to Hoegaarden Rosé! I never thought I’d like a fruity beer, but oh my god! They’re deliciously amazing! So easy to drink and so cooling! I can’t wait to drink these in the summer time! Even though, beer tastes good all year round, right? Check out all their other beers here. They even have one made from green tea, what!

I also love that this is a Belgian beer, maybe because we might be moving there, but who knows? Give this a go if you haven’t already, you won’t regret it!

Happy beer drinking, catreaders!

 

Innocent Smoothies&Juices

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? I hope you had a great time or relaxed and rested all you had to! Mine was busy but also relaxing. And I’m very excited for the start of this week because two of my best friends are visiting us! Having friends all over the world is not very easy sometimes, but it’s always amazing and fun when we get together! So, this week and the beginning of the next, I’ll be extra busy and hopefully having tons of fun! And this week here, I decided to share with you some of my favourite drinks.

Today, I’ll be talking about the Innocent brand, which sells 100% natural drinks, pure fruit. And they’re really amazing! I have been addicted to them! The beautiful part of this brand is their Foundation, the Innocent Foundation, which helps people in poverty since 2004, by giving away at least 10% of their annual profits to countries in need. In addition, they have another project that helps elder people who live isolated. This one hits me right in the heart, because in my last year of high school, my two best friends and I created a project that aimed the same goal: helping elders by communicating and being with them. Just an hour or two a day can change their lives. As you can see, besides being a healthy and delicious brand, the social side of it makes them stand out.

They have tons of flavours and different products and I always find them at any supermarket. They have smoothies, juices, super juices, coconut water and sparkly drinks! I’ve tried many of these: the smooth orange juice, the tropical juice, the orange and mango juice, the orange and blood orange super juice, the apple and berry sparkly juice, the seriously strawberry smoothie, the energise super smoothie, the invigorate super smoothie and the recharge super smoothie. I think these are the ones I’ve tried so far. Here in France they don’t yet have as many options as in the UK or Ireland, check their website too by changing the country at the bottom of their official page. These drinks are not the cheapest, I have to say, however they are really good and again, I love the social cause, so I don’t mind buying a few every other week to support them and make my tummy happy.

Have you tried Innocent drinks? Do you have them in your country? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Innocent’ing, catreaders!
