but … priorities first: Gin!
*Commissioned Content with BoeGin
When I first came across Boë Gin, I was absolutely in love with the design of the bottle. Very subtle, very girly yet sophisticated bottle shape. Couple weeks ago, we sat with Damien my male friend to taste that specific gin. I have prepared two types of tonics, first was pink lemonade and second traditional white tonic. Just to give a little experimental taste. As soon as I opened the bottle, I smelled the gin and it was a very lovely yet delicate scent of fruits. We tried with pink lemonade (and decided not to swap as it was an absolute winner!)
I have recently gone into adulting stage where I turned to Gin and Prosecco. Everyone I spoke to recently who hit their early 30s seem to turning to gin. Boë Gin is an absolute winner to all gins I have tasted so far. As for Damien who expected a delicate taste as per bottle design, he was positively surprised that this gin had a decent kick. So if you ever see the bottle in shop s- take 2!

Many people confuse Purple and Violet but these are 2 different colours! Issac Newton was the guy behind Violet where purple is achieved by mixing red and blue together. Pure violet cannot be accurately reproduced by the Red-Green-Blue (RGB) colour system, the method used to create colours on a television screen or computer display.
Bold purple colour has been worn by Roman Emperors and magistrates, and later by Roman Catholic bishops. Also this colour is associated with royalty and richness. Often used in Luxury hotel interior spaces. In addition according to psychology of shopping, the colour purple encourages clients to buy more, so this colour is great to use in retail design as well.
