A Gift from the Heart

My first mothers day had been and gone but I received some lovely gifts from Freya and Bob, not it’s creeping up every so quickly to Bob’s first fathers day and it’s time for me to start thinking about presents.

One way to make fathers day special regardless of whether it’s their first one or not is to look at engraved gifts for him.

For me, my other half is a big watch fan and the idea of getting him something personalised on an item he would wear day-to-day sounds fantastic. That’s why Personalised Watches were one of the first things I started looking at when I began my hunt for the perfect 1st fathers day present.

Getting my Caffeine and Protein fix

We all know I’m still holding on to some post baby chub that just won’t shift its way off my hips. I’ve been trying to do exercise but lately I feel as though I’ve lost some motivation when it comes to daily cardio workouts. My aim every day has been to walk somewhere between 12k-15k steps and do organic exercise like housework etc to lose the remaining hip chub without exacerbating myself.

As a lover of caffeine, I was over the moon to receive a box of Get Nourished iced coffee drinks to try out.

Get Nourished contains 25g of protein per bottle and comes in 3 delicious coffee flavours. It’s high amount of protein means it has one of the highest levels of protein in the UK protein drink market. The coffee has been carefully blended to serve a strong coffee with a subtle flavour in Coconut, Vanilla or Hazelnut.

The drink is made using a high quality lactose-free milk protein and on top of that the product is also gluten-free. The drink is the perfect breakfast wake up or could be used as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick me up which is how I’ve been using it in my day-to-day routine.

These iced coffee drinks have been the perfect addition to my routine especially when we go out for walks round the village as these tend to be long to keep Freya asleep or to get her to doze off in the first place. Out of the three flavours I tried, the hazelnut one was my absolute favourite.

Overall I really liked these drinks and unlike other protein drinks, they didn’t leave a horrible aftertaste which is a big plus as I love iced coffee in general but was worried about the high level of protein and how that might affect the taste.

If you fancy trying out the coffee’s for yourself then head to either Holland & Barrett, Musclefood.com or Getnourished.co.uk.
