Top 5 Things of the Week (July 1st – 7th)

7 Jul

#1 Quoted on Bottles of Happy Greens Smoothies

There are no words to describe how honoured and humbled I feel to have been quoted on the packaging of one of the tastiest and most wholesome smoothie brands in the UK. Amazing!

#2 Meet & Greet With The Cast Of We’re Going On Bear Hunt
I was fortunately asked to review the stage production of Michael Rosen’s bestselling picture book, which has just started its run at the Lyric Theatre (see previous posts). What I wasn’t expecting was the surprise at the end – a lovely lunch including gorgeous cupcakes followed by a meet and greet with the cast. I even got to shake hands with the puppet “Baby”. Awesome!

#3 The Burger Wars Officially Kicked Off in London
Shake Shack and Five Guys opened their doors in Covent Garden within 24 hours of one another and the build up to the burger wars has been epic. I’ll be posting a review of the burgers at both chains but, in the meantime, can you guess the winner? I doubt it.

#4 Gerard Butler in a Wetsuit
The gorgeous actor’s new flick, Chasing Mavericks, was released over the weekend and I was lucky enough to attend a preview screening (see my previous posts for the review). I’m a huge sucker for sporting dramas as they always leave me feeling energised and inspired, like I’m ready to take on the world. The film wasn’t the greatest but it did motivate me to do great things during my remaining week.

#5 Andy Murray’s Win At Wimbledon
I’m not a massive tennis fan and I wasn’t at Wimbledon but this was a huge moment in the UK’s sporting history and Murray has more than earned a mention in my rundown of the Top 5 Things of the Week. It felt wrong to publish this post without saying: “Congratulations, Andy Murray!”

INTRODUCING: Happy Greens Smoothies

16 Jun

Today I was one of the privileged few who were asked to sample a new smoothie range from Happy Greens.

The Hackney based producer uses spinach as a key ingredient to create delicious, healthy and fresh flavour combinations that just happen to be the colour of Robin Hood’s tights! As these drinks aren’t pasteurised like many other smoothie brands on the market, you get a fully charged, vitamin-packed dose of raw fruit and vegetables to keep your mojo boosted and your vitality in tact. It’s an easy way to get one of your recommended ‘5-a-day’.

I sampled two flavours: the first was light, sweet and flavoursome, adding banana, mango and kiwi to Popeye’s favourite snack. The second paired spinach with lime (rind, pulp and flesh) to deliver a zesty and revitalising energy injection to help kickstart the day.

Watch out for the imminent launch of Happy Greens smoothies in shops and eateries across London. Remember where you heard it first…
