Do you call it the mullet, the dip hem, the high-low? Whatever you call this style of dress, can we all please agree that it is kind of the most perfect outfit for a summer city break? I know, bold statement, I’m quite partial to a pair of denim shorts as well to do a little sightseeing, but when you are after something a little more feminine, without being too revealing you really can’t go wrong with a dip low-high mullet hemline on your maxi dress. 

So what’s so perfect about the mullet? Well, for me, its the fact it is still fun, less formal, even when it is a full on chiffon gown, and it allows you to cover up your legs a little, while still flirting. Sometimes, less on show really is more, and I actually think the dip hem is sexy, as well as being very flattering, especially for my curvy thighs. I also hate being uncomfortable when on a city break especially in the summer and this allows me to keep cool, cover up, but not too much, as well as being fun and flirty. 

This little beauty is from Boohoo, well actually Asos, as I much prefer to shop Boohoo there, I find a curated edit of the fast-fashion online retailer easier to digest. Does anyone else feel that the Boohoo website is rather unappealing? I always feel like I kind of get lost down the rabbit hole trying to find something specific, so I much prefer to buy via Asos. Sadly, this little beauty has sold out, I think that’s the downside to Boohoo via Asos they must have limited stock, or maybe it was the £20 price tag, bold floral print, perfect mullet style and on-trend ruffle that made this a sellout, either way, I’m glad I managed to snag one. 

Even though this really is a summer dress, just imagine pairing with black ankle boots, a chunky cardigan and a hat – I think it will transition well into the autumn, well if the weather is mild enough, fingers crossed as I can’t stop wearing this mullet beauty.

What’s you thoughts on the mullet hemline?

Did you catch my other Paris posts? The incredible Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel, another bargain Boohoo dress, and twirling around Palais Garnier?

Travel-Paris-August16-17

I don’t think I can stop gushing about my recent trip to Paris, this wasn’t my first visit, far from it, but staying in the gorgeous and centrally located Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel, literally between Jardin des Tuileries and Place Vendôme, made it feel like I was discovering all the iconic places of the city again. 

The first time I visited Paris I stayed a couple of streets over, it wasn’t five-star, it was very basic and it meant that actually, our visit was a little strained, we actually hated going back to the hotel, so we stayed out all day and was shattered. This time with the luxury of a 5-star hotel to call home it meant that I could enjoy every second, while still packing in the sights, as there are so many incredible things to visit literally on the doorstep of the hotel. 

If you think of the main tourist attractions of Paris that you want to see I bet most will be within a 10-minute walk from Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel, and if not, you can probably get to it from one of the Metro stations less than 5 minutes from the hotel.

So, what’s in walking distance, well the Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries is 5-10 minutes, as is a number of museums and galleries including Les Arts Decoratifs, Musee d’Orsay, and Musee de l’Orangerie. There’s also a number of other cute spots including Place Vendôme, Palais Royal – you know the place with Daniel Buren’s striped columns in courtyard, the striking Pont Alexandre III bridge where you’ll spy the Eiffel Tower, the architectural delights of the Grand Palais and the Petit-Palais, as well as the stunning Palais Garnier.

If that’s enough to keep you going you also have the River Seine close by, I do recommend jumping on the Batobus, a hop-on-hop-off boat that has 9 stops along the river including at Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, and even the Champs-Elysee. A pass lasts all day so you can jump off and explore the areas you want and it’s easy to get back to the hotel. 

Renaissance-paris-vendome-1

When it comes to city breaks I do like a luxury hotel with a boutique feel and I love how Renaissance Hotels seem to make you forget actually they are quite big, and I think it is the service, the staff are amazing – the Navigators know the best places to eat and visit, and you can’t go wrong with a hotel that has a free sweetie bar and fruit-infused water on tap, which was needed visiting Paris during August as it was so hot. I also adored the art display that greeted us in reception, with a jellyfish display by artist Tsuyu, it was like it had been knit-bombed.

Renaissance-paris-vendome-11 Renaissance-paris-vendome-10

Renaissance-paris-vendome-3

This Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel also knows how to do a great breakfast, another essential when you have a packed schedule of sightseeing on the cards, and one of the things I love most about staying in a hotel. You can have a little of everything as they have a cereal, fruit, pastries, toast, as well as a hot buffet of sausage, bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes, they even had meats and cheese. But for me, what made it was being able to order eggs, I do love an omelette for breakfast, especially when I’m away and it was so delicious. 

Other highlights of my stay had to be just relaxing in our room, it was a great size, the bed was just so comfortable, and the shower was so heavenly as it has these aroma pods, which looked like coffee pods, that you click in and it gives your shower an aromatherapy vibe, I totally have to see if I can have this in my own bathroom it was amazing. The hotel also has a spa with a swimming pool which is open until late and we used in the mornings and evenings and it was empty so it was even better having it all to ourselves. Just having a dip after a long day was so luxurious. 

So I’ve covered location, the heavenly relaxing shower, the luxurious swimming pool, and the hearty breakfast, what more could you want from a great hotel? Well, for me, it has to have a great bartender, come on who doesn’t love a cocktail while on a city break? Well, Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel does the best cocktails, you’ll even get a scene from Cocktail as well if you ask nicely. The Japanese decorated bar is so relaxing and fun, I saw some people eating in there as well and I was a little jealous we already had a table booked somewhere else.

What I loved most about our stay at the Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel was that it showed that you can stay close to the tourist area, without it being touristy, if you know what I mean. I felt as soon as we got into the hotel that we were in a cute Parisian neighbourhood as it wasn’t surrounded by tacky souvenir shops or fast food places, it was down a quiet street. OK, so the views were great, we looked out onto offices, and normally I would say that was a must in Paris, but you know what the rest of the hotel, the size of the room, the amenities, location and friendly staff meant I didn’t miss it as much as I thought. 

If you are looking for somewhere special to take in the main sights of Paris I can’t recommend Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel enough, trust me you won’t regret it.

What do you look for in a hotel for a city break?

There’s something so special about Paris, well there is to me, yeah it’s the city of lights, one of the most romantic places in the world, for me, it’s a source of inspiration that every so often I needed a much-needed boost of.  I always find returning to the French capital always inspires and boosts my confidence, I don’t know what it is, maybe the incredibly fashionable Parisians that I love to admire, maybe it’s the fact that it’s is acceptable to waste an afternoon just sitting and watching the world go by from one of the cities many gardens, maybe it’s the surroundings, the architecture is just divine, or maybe it’s the fact I get to gush over Monet, or maybe it comes down to the fact I just seem so much more relaxed and less self-conscious than I am in London.

There are many places that I love, New York obviously, it will always be a very special place for my husband and I, it was my perfect fairytale wedding, without the castle, then there’s Manchester, it will always be home, and then there is Paris, my spiritual home that I so wish I could pack up everything here and live, if only it was possibly and I could speak French. In my heart my Parisian journey isn’t just one of visiting, I know that I will live there, maybe I just need to wait a few years until it is possible. But, until then I will just have to be content with visiting, hopefully, more regularly than I have done recently, I think I need a boost at least every couple of months. Whereas New York is a little further away, I don’t really have many excuses with Paris, it really is just a couple of hours away on the train. 

Back to this look, which FYI I’m in love with, not only are the Jardin Des Tuileries a beautiful setting, I love just sitting by the fountains reading a book, sipping hot chocolate from Angelina’s and munching on a pain au chocolate, seriously heavenly just doing much of nothing. This look is a bargain, would you believe me if I said that this Boohoo midi dress was £20? You should, as it was, and the quality is superb. Sadly, it has sold out twice now, hardly surprising, as this beauty with its paisley print and crochet inserts is just so pretty. I’m obsessed with the long sleeves, the knee-skimming length, as well as the blue, black and cream colour.

Just putting this Boohoo dress on filled me with a new found confidence, add in the Paris backdrop and this has to be one of my favourite shoots I did in the city. Twirling in the Palais Garnier was pretty special, and I have a great style post to come from Palais Royal, but this boohoo dress and the fact it was only £20 make it even more perfect.

What do you think about this bargain Boohoo midi dress?

Are you getting bored of fashion exhibitions yet? Nope, me neither, I’m obsessed with seeing beautifully constructed couture looks side-by-side, it’s always interesting seeing Chanel next to Dior for instance, and I adored the incredible designs on show at the Fashion Forward: 3 Centuries of Fashion, the exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. I would love to say that this post is just a teaser that you still had time to see, sadly I only just managed to see it as it closes on August 14, but to ease the pain of missing I hope you like these amazing pics, I’m kind of obsessed with my new camera, the Canon EOS M10, perfect for travelling. 

So what made the Fashion Forward exhibition so special, well the setting certainly helped, seeing gorgeous couture in Paris was magical, then add in the mix of designs, there is everyone from Chanel to Yves Saint Laurent, Vionnet, Dior, Schiaparelli, and Lanvin, as well as newbies including Vetements and Comme Des Garcons. It was slightly surreal to see Vetement sweats from their autumn/winter 2016 amongst the mix, some might disagree with their inclusion, while others feel looking to the future of fashion is a great idea.

The Fashion Forward exhibition has more than 300 clothing pieces spanning 300 years, starting with the fashions from the lustrous reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV, where the exhibition states that French fashion started taking shape. While the historical pieces were great to see, the exhibition didn’t really impress me until I saw the modern era all displayed in the large exhibition hall of the museum. Combining the gorgeous couture pieces, the incredible light of the hall, and the intricate stair design of the exhibit was mesmerising, kind of made me think of that famous staircase in Gabrielle Chanel’s salon at 31 Rue Cambon. I just wanted to consume all the fashion details, the designers, the history and it was so inspiring, and I hope that comes across in these images. 

Unlike other recent fashion exhibitions technology wasn’t on show, this was just fashion on show, which totally made it perfection in my eyes, I think other exhibitions can learn something that not everything needs to be interactive, yet what’s on display speak for itself, and this collection of French fashion certainly did. 

If you are in Paris from now until August 14 do go and see it, the fashion is simply divine. 

Did you manage to see the Fashion Forward: 3 Centuries of Fashion exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs?

Did you see my first style post from my Paris trip?

When I think of Paris I can only remember the good memories, to be honest, I don’t think there have been any bad moments, but it’s a city close to my heart that I always seem to have so much fun. I just love wandering the city, rediscovering my favourite places, as well as being in awe at the incredible architecture, because I think we can all agree it is definitely one of the best cities in the world for that. Each visit I also always find a new gem to obsessed about, fall in love and generally smile constantly about, this trip had to be my visit to the Palais Garnier, you know the opera house used as the setting for Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel The Phantom of the Opera.

I’ve admired Palais Garnier from afar, always wondering whether someone actually climbs onto the roof to buff and polish the gold statues that shine so brightly, but I never knew that you could go inside, well unless you were off to the opera. If you are planning a visit to Paris definitely add this to your list of things to do as it was only 11 Euros to go around. There are tour guides and audio tours, of course, but for me, I always find wandering around, getting a little lost, jotting down notes to research pieces later, and going at my own pace the way to go.

This place is huge, as you would probably expect from a 1,979-seat opera house, so give yourself a couple of hours, as there are points where you just need to sit, take it all in, and people watch, another favourite thing to do, everyone is just so chic in Paris. As I was going round all I could think about were all the glamourous Parisians attending the opera, wearing gorgeous gowns and tuxedos, navigating their way up the grand double staircase to their seats, admiring the people sat in the boxes. I bet it is seriously amazing to see an opera here, and something that I’ve added to my bucket list, I think my first opera has to be in Paris. Palais Garnier, Paris, France, Travel, Style Post, Fashionista Barbie, Asos, Keds, Girl in Glasses, Pink Dress, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger

Paris Highlight: Palais Garnier

There are a lot of highlights to see, the horseshoe-shaped “French” auditorium is incredible, don’t forget to look up as the ceiling is amazing painted by Marc Chagall, which apparently pays tribute to the composers Mozart, Wagner, Mussorgsky, Berlioz and Ravel, as well as to famous actors and dancers, well that’s what my father-in-law told me from his audio guide. Be in awe at the divine gallery room lined in gold with gorgeous chandeliers, as well as see the library, showcasing centuries of the theatre’s history, including a delicate and detailed look at how sets come together. Seriously, there is so much to see, just enjoy every last bit of it. 

Of course, I had to dress up a little, it was such a gorgeous place I couldn’t resist shooting an outfit, and I adore this off-the-shoulder dusky pink dress I picked up from ASOS, which FYI is currently in the sale, less than £25 – buy it quick! You can wear it dressy, just pair with nude heels and a cool hat for a wedding, or wear with black accessories for a chic look, or why not opt for a casual vibe like me and pair with your favourite trainers, which in my case are my Keds x Malhia Kent. I know I’ve already gushed over these trainers, but you can’t get more Parisian that these beauties and I love how this dress looks paired with flats. 

I shot lots of cool content while in Paris, so keep your eyes peeled for a review of Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel, a great 5-star hotel close to the main tourist attractions, my Paris highlights, as well as some pretty gorgeous looks for you to recreate on your city break this summer. I’m feeling so inspired after this trip that I can’t wait to put together all these blog posts for you all. 

Have you been to Palais Garnier in Paris? Also, what do you think of my Asos dress paired with Keds?

Brunch is one of my favourite activities, I love how pancakes generally make an appearance on the menu, I love the slower pace, maybe because you’re waking up to the day, and I just love how it can extend a night out with friends, and also what’s better than munching while relaxing with a giant newspaper and a lovely cup of tea!!!

Cambridge has so many great spots for brunch/breakfast, so many actually this post would be very long, so I’ve decided to share my three current favourite spots – Old Bicycle Shop, Browns Cambridge, and Côte.

old-bicycle-shop-cambridge-2

Brunch Spot: The Old Bicycle Shop

This is recent discovery, I actually saw it on Instagram and got food envy that I had to visit, and I’m so pleased I did, as not only is the menu a little different with great vegetarian options, I really love the warehouse-like decor and the fact they’ve kept a little of the bicycle shop history scattered about the walls. This place also has an outside terrace, which doesn’t allow smoking, so when the sun is shining it is quite the sun trap. 

Let’s get down to the menu, yep they have pancakes so I’m happy. But these are pancakes with a difference, they are sweet potato ones, and the berry compote toasted almonds and yoghurt topping was simply divine. Not only were they delicious but oh so filling, which is what you need from brunch, and at less than £6 it is a great price. 

Other highlights on the menu includes smashed avocado on toast with a soft boiled egg, not only does it taste great but you’ll be happy at the Instagram-worthy dish it comes in, or how about duck eggs, or the delicious sounding carrot and parsnip hash browns, with wild mushrooms, white bean, and chive aioli? There are also some classic options, eggs benedict, Croque Monsieur and smoked salmon. 

Have you had brunch at Old Bicycle Shop? Let me know what I should try next.

Next up is Browns Cambridge, which is probably better known for its dinner menu, but I love how varied its brunch offering is, especially for vegetarians. This has to be one of my favourite veggie brunches, it has the classics scrambled eggs, beans, tomato, mushrooms and toast, you know the obvious, but it also has smashed avocado, that always gets my vote, as well as beetroot hash, which is so delicious and has to be tasted.

If you don’t fancy this much for brunch, why not opt for the selection of freshly baked mini pastries and muesli bread, the strawberry jam is amazing, and of course it wouldn’t be a brunch menu with pancakes, which come with mixed berries, English borage honey, and greek yoghurt, I’m seriously making myself hungry. 

For my husband, he always opts for the traditional breakfast, apparently, the black pudding is great, he also had, and loved the Browns lobster benedict, the Bubble & squeak, and scrambled free range eggs and smoked salmon, seriously there is so much choice.

On top of all the food, I also love their breakfast smoothies, strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry is my favourite, but I also love the kale, spinach, and apple for a healthy kick, and the mango, pineapple, passionfruit is like summer in a juice.

Brunch Spot: Côte Brasserie

What I like about Côte is that it doesn’t feel like a huge chain, I know that it is, there are lots across the UK, but the Cambridge one with its great location on Bridge Street – so perfect before hitting the shops, cute booths, chic white crockery, and gorgeous light, which is needed to get that great Instagram snap. 

The menu is a little more limiting than the others, but I had to include as it does the best french toast in the city, topped with fruit salad and maple flavoured syrup, which I always ask for extra as it is so yummy. You can also do a pick-n-mix, hotel-style breakfast, a little of everything – a croissant, pain aux raisin, pain au chocolate and fruit salad. Trust me, you’ll love filling up your tiny table with delicious food. 

Meat lovers go for the French breakfast, which comes with French streaky bacon and a field mushroom on toasted brioche, or why not opt for a warm crêpe with free range eggs, bacon and shaved Gruyère cheese. 

Other great brunch spots: Loch Fyne – this place isn’t just about seafood, the brunch menu is pretty nice; Afternoon Tease, a little limited but I do love their veggie sausage sandwich; Bill’s, you can’t go wrong with Bill’s; and then there’s Harriets, the crumpets are to-die-for. 

Where do you like to go for brunch in Cambridge?

Are you thinking can Disney collaborate with anyone else? Me neither!!! I’m loving the Disney fashion invasion at the moment, we’ve already had Coach x Mickey Mouse, Vans went all Jungle Book on us, and Primark seems to have every Disney character you could possibly want on a T-shirt. Well, the collaboration I’m most excited by has to be Disney x Cath Kidston, there’s something about the cutesy floral prints of the British brand and the playful, fun vibe of classic Disney characters that seems like a perfect match to me.

There are going to be two collections as part of the Disney x Cath Kidston this year, first up will be Winnie-the-Pooh in September to coincide with the loveable bear’s 90th anniversary, and then the second is with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse that will hit stores in time for Christmas. 

Granted I’m excited by both, but come on does it get any better than Cath Kidston and Minnie Mouse? Yep, I don’t think so. They had an event in London to celebrate and I got a sneak peek at the two collections – so here’s my favourite pieces. 

Disney-x-Cath-Kidston-1

Disney x Cath Kidston: Winnie-the-Pooh – coming September 26

Winnie-the-Pooh really works well with Cath Kidson’s prints, but if I’m honest out of the two collections this is the more obvious of the two, great for gifts and kids but not very fashiony, if you know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still cute, I love the crockery and the baby stuff, I just can’t see myself wearing a Winnie-the-Pooh dress or tote bag.

Disney x Cath Kidston: Minnie and Mickey Mouse – coming December 2016

OK, now this is more my vibe, check out that Minnie and Mickey Mouse red cardigan, so cool, I’m totally lusting over it. I also really want the spotty Minnie jumper and dress, the crazy cool Minnie and floral print dress, all the stationery, the rucksack, and if they released the print as a wallpaper I would probably want that as well!!!

There is something so fun about this collection that I just adore, there’s just so many pieces there really is something for everyone, and I think people are going to go crazy for it. I can tell you I’ll be first in line.

Watch Minnie Mouse Come To Life

At the event they also had a Disney illustrator sketching live, seriously this dude was so talented, he drew my custom Minnie Mouse in less than 3 minutes. I’ve sped up the process a little in this video – but seriously memormising to watch.

How do you cool down during a heat wave? I find one of these refreshing summer drinks is needed. For the most part, my go-to option is always fizzy or a good cuppa, however, when it’s warm I always want something fruity, you may have noticed in my recent Instagram and Snapchat posts, and I have some great options that I think you might want to stock up next time you’re at the supermarket. 

Vita Coco with Pineapple

Top of my refreshing summer drinks list has to be Vita Coco, coconut water with pineapple, to be fair, all of the Vita Coco waters are recommended, but there is something about the pineapple one that just hits the spot when it is scorching outside. OK, it is a little pricier than most drinks, I think a 1-litre bottle is close to £3 in some shops, but trust me it is so worth it. Billed as ‘like sticking a straw in a coconut’, it’s more than just refreshing, I love how it has that ability to transform me back to a white sandy beach!!!

FYI – love it as much as me? I suggest you bulk buy over at Amazon, plus it is on Prime so you can have it the next day. 

Snapple

I first discovered Snapple in New York, I became obsessed with seeing what fun fact was under the lid, as well as the refreshing blend of juices. I have a few favourites, the Kiwi Strawberry, Raspberry Tea and the Pink Lemonade, all will hit the spot on a hot day. I’ve only just realised you can now buy these natural drinks in Tesco, which makes me very happy. 

What a Melon

This is a recent discovery, the guys sent me a few What a Melon bottles to try and I’m hooked, I love watermelon, and I love it even more without the fuss of cutting it up, scooping out the pips and waiting for it to be ripe. It’s kind of like coconut water in the fact it is hydrating, but it is also great for while working out as it has the anti-oxidant lycopene and the muscle-loving amino acid citruline, which apparently means it’s even better for letting you get your sweat on!!!

Belvoir Elderflower Cordial

When it comes to a non-alcoholic drink that makes me think of summer it has to be elderflower cordial and the best out there has to be this one by Belvoir. I think they sell in Tescos and the likes, but I always find in our local farm shop, and I find it is great for mixing up a large batch for a BBQ or picnic as everyone seems to love it. As well as making a great drink, you can also use it in your baking, there’s a lemon and elderflower loaf cake that is divine. Seriously give it a try. 

Belvoir Raspberry Lemonade Presse Can

The only fizzy drink on my list is the Belvoir Raspberry Lemonade Presse Can, which is generally the ultimate option to add to any picnic hamper. This beauty of a drink is refreshing as is, but also works great as a mixer, just add to a dash of vodka if you’re feeling naughty! For me, I just find it a great alternative to lemonade, it doesn’t feel as sparkling and it much more refreshing.

Caffe Latte 

Not really a fruity person and wondering where the caffeine hit is? Well, my husband totally raves about Caffe Latte’s iced coffees. Find these in the fresh milk aisle, I say that as it took me a while to find in our local supermarket. There are loads of different options, but the two my husband likes the most are the Cappuccino and Vanilla flavours. You just simply shake and drink – for the perfect pick-me-up.

Which refreshing summer drinks are on your shopping list?

If you haven’t already noticed I do like a good bag, I tend to love lots of different styles, shapes and colours, actually more colour the better, I actually don’t have that many black bags, and I do love finding new labels to lust over, especially if they are British, and I have a great one for you today, Lily Lyn. I discovered this Manchester-based designer label at Pure London, chatting with the founder and designer Jayshree Patel was such a pleasure, her passion for her handbags is infectious, and I instantly fell in love with the Lyn bag, named after her mum. 

There’s something so luxurious, yet affordable about Lily Lyn, the bag I’m carrying the Lyn in cream, which a few people on social media dubbed the R2D2, as it kind of reminded them of the Star Wars robot, is so beautiful. I’m a little obsessed with the unusual design, the round shape paired with signature stripes certainly makes it a statement, and the gorgeous Saffiano Leather in Cream and dark blue Ostrich print leather paired with floral silk lining add a touch of luxury to the bag, which in case you are wondering is under £200.

Discovering Lily Lyn

I love that it’s big enough for everyday use, but not too big, it has a number of pockets, including an all-important middle pocket with zip for valuables, plus its cross-body design can be switched up to carry for a more sophisticated, lady-like look. To get an idea of how big this bag is, I could fit my new go-to Canon EOS M10 **which I promise to share more about soon**, a notepad – I’m never without one, a change of glasses, make-up essentials, purse, business cards, travel card, and a chocolate snack. Basically, everything you need, and a little room for a few extras. 

I actually wore this look to breakfast with my husband, we went to check out the fairly new Old Bicycle Shop in Cambridge, it was yummy by the way **did you see the pancakes I ate on Instagram?**, and we decided to walk through Downing College, one of my favourites in Cambridge. I’m glad we did as at the moment they have some giant tree sculptures by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei on display, they were magnificent to see and I love the backdrop they’ve provided to this shoot. It was only afterwards that I realised the college is also hosting an exhibition in its Heong Gallery of the artist so I definitely have to visit again soon. 

Have you discovered British accessories label, Lily Lyn?

If you could remake your favourite TV show into a chocolate, what would you go for? For me, there are lots of box sets that I return to, that I love to devour from episode to episode for a whole weekend, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Alias and the Big Bang Theory, all of which would make great choc choices. But, how do you decide on the flavours? Well, according to Paul A. Young who has created the Ultimate Chocolate Box Set inspired by Sky Box Sets it’s all about immersing yourself into the theme of the box set.

So, I reckon for Buffy, the chocolate would need to be hard on the outside, but with a soft centre, that when you bite into it oozes, as our favourite slayer was a little gory at times. I also think it needs to be heavy on the chocolate, maybe a combination of white, dark and milk somehow. For Alias, I’m thinking something that transforms, Jennifer Garner’s character was the master at creating a disguise, maybe in chocolate form that could be something that looks sweet on the outside with a kick, how about chilli-infused for added spice. I think Big Bang Theory might be the hardest as you’ve got to come up with a chocolate that is a scientific, or maybe it’s the easiest as you just have to make the best choc you can, as Sheldon would only put his name to the best!!!

chocolate-boxset-2

For the Ultimate Chocolate Box Set, Young watched more than 100 hours of TV to bring each show to life, from the Walking Dead to 24, and even Nashville got a chocolate makeover. There really is something for everyone in this box set, from my favourite superstar truffle that combines pumpkin pie, doughnuts and maple syrup to represents Nashville to the frosty white coat of the Fortitude chocolate that’s infused with mint, pine and clove oil for an icy-cold taste, to the bitter-sweet choc heart representing The Affair. There is even a bourbon and smoky paprika filled Mad Men choc. 

The fun with this box set isn’t just in the incredible flavours of the chocolates but also guessing which show is which, well, if you can resist not cheating of course. The easiest one to spot has to be 24, that clock is a big give away, and its coffee bean and thyme infused creation is a rush. For me, the best had to be the white chocolate, salted caramel and popcorn sweet treat representing the ultimate Sky Box Set. 

Oh, and did I mention, The Ultimate Chocolate Box Set is also doing it’s bit for charity, as all proceeds will be donated to the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). So you get to eat delicious chocolates and do good!!!

The Ultimate Chocolate Box Set is available to buy in Paul A. Young stores, for £15.50.
