We’re nearly at the end of January *fist pump* which means I can have a glass of wine soon. So, seeing as we’re celebrating (nearly) the end of the toughest month of the year, I thought it was time for a little pick me up. I live down the road from the most lovely hotel, Lime Wood, and they’re offering a spa day for two at their Herb House Spa. It includes use of all the facilities, any classes you might want to do, lunch in Raw & Cured (think super superfood) and even a body MOT if you want one. Travel isn’t included but get yourself to Brockenhurst station and I’ll come and pick you up. To enter, just leave a comment on the blog here or on the KMWC Facebook page and a winner will be announced next week. Good luck!
T&Cs: Spa Day prize voucher is valid for 6 months from prize draw date and can only be redeemed on Monday-Friday (sorry!). Competition closes on 3rd February 2016 at 11.59pm. The prize draw is open to any UK resident over the age of 18.
Current non-alcoholic drink : Seedlip
Price: £29.99 - Buy From Selfridges
I’ve spent much of the last month trying to make not drinking easy. I mean, water’s fine during the day but in the evening, especially when everyone else is on the wine, I want something a little more grown up. Seedlip, then, has been a saviour. It’s the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit according to founder and creator Ben Branson. By distilling citrus peels, barks and spices, he’s created something that looks and feels a bit like gin but without the alcohol. Pour it into a tumbler with lots of ice and a slice, top it up with tonic et voila! Lovely stuff, beautifully done.
Current red in the rack: Yalumba Organic Shiraz
Price: £7.49 - Buy From Waitrose
Made from organically grown grapes, so it’s practically a health drink. One of the best value Australian reds (especially when it’s on offer), this is ripe and smooth with gorgeous, fleshy plum fruits. There are relatively few female winemakers around, (in Australia, less than 10%), but the winemaker behind this wine is Heather Fraser. If you want a great white, there’s a brilliant organic Viognier in the range too.
