Want the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day? Chocolate.
That is all you need. (Well, that’s all I need!)

Summer is definitely here. After a bit of a stormy start, Summer has reared it’s glorious head. I got burnt yesterday at the beach; I applied sunscreen (patchily, as it turns out) and have awkward sunburn patches on my back and legs.

This punch doesn’t need much explanation because it is so simple. You can adjust it to suit your needs as well.

The Mint and berries add a vibrant splash of colour, but they also give it a great flavour.
