New Limited Edition Costa Ruby Hot Chocolate

It’s tipped to be the most instagramable hot chocolate of the year, and we are only in February. Released as part of the new January menu, Costa have given us a Ruby Hot Chocolate AND it’s pink!  There has been quite a few things in Ruby chocolate form to hit shelves, including two types of KitKat (review here and here) and Presat Ruby Bar (review from Kevvie here).

Red Velvet Cupcake Baileys

In collaboration with US brand Georgetown Cupcake, Baileys first launched its Red Velvet flavour back in the Autumn. This was strictly available in the US however if you follow on Instagram you may have seen my post about the Red Velvet Cupcake Baileys having crossed the pond to the UK.  It seemed that this was the only way of getting your hands on this limited edition bottle was through The Bottle Club, however that was until I stumbled across it in Costco no less.  You can purchase this through Amazon here and it has also just hit supermarket shelves.

We Are Tea Sleep Tea

I am first to put my hand up and say lavender tea would not be my first choice. In fact it would come way, way, way, way down the list of teas to…
