Lemon and Ginger Tea

It is just so cold outside!

..And I am not made for winter! It isn’t too bad now that I have my new winter coats but still as much as I love wearing them, I cant wait for the warm sunny days to arrive when no coats are even needed!

I eat my vegetables often, but tend to struggle to eat fruit at this time of year. I feel happier within myself if I drink lots of water and have recently started drinking lots of hot boiled water. And after being given the advice from a friend, I have been drinking lots of hot lemon and ginger water too!

How I make mine:


  • I dice a piece of fresh ginger into small peices and place into a cup
  • then I slice a piece of fresh lemon and add that to my cup of ginger
  • I then pour over it with freshly boiled water and leave it to infuse for a few minutes before drinking it.

I love it! And I feel so much better for drinking it rather than drinking too many cups of coffee and english tea all day (with milk and one sugar) for me this is a nice, cosy, warming and relaxing drink to enjoy during our wintery days.

The benefits to this drink:

  • It’s healthy
  • Rich in vitamins C and B
  • Prevents colds and flu
  • Great for your hair and skin
  • Full of anti oxidants
  • Great for stimulating digestion
  • Provides protection against the development of cancer cells and polyps
  • Builds up the immune system
  • Cost effective
  • Quick and easy to make
  • Basically it’s great!! Lol

I tried to get my children to drink it too but they wasn’t too keen, they have one or two sips to make me happy but then the rest is left and I hate waste so I tend to make it just for myself now and encourage them to drink plenty of plain water instead!

Have you tried drinking this before? Is there another drink that I could try along with this? I’d love to hear from you so be sure to comment down below.

Wishing you a happy Monday and a positive week ahead!

KIDZANIA Review

 

We went to Kidzania!!!

kIDZANIA - lAYONIE jAE

OMG! If you havent been to Kidzania before then I absolutely recomLayonie Jaemend that you take Layonie Jaeyour children there! It is definLayonie Jaeitely an experience worth experiencing! It litterally is a city for children with very realistic features! The shops, the hospital, the supermarket, everything about Kidzania is fantastic! They even have the mini replica of my favourite shop H&M which I was very impressed with!!

Your children have the opportuntiy to both earn and spend Kidzania money called Kidzo’s and have the freedom to truely enjoy the experience with many no grown ups allowed area zones.

 

I took my Leshay and Jaray (age 5 & 7) to Kidzania with my mum so the cost for the 4 of us was £97 in total. £26.67 for a child ticket and £13.75 for an adult ticket (each). I booked our session online and printed off the e-tickets. Each session lasts for 4 hours and I booked the 11am-3pm session for the Saturday.

Located in Westfeilds Shopping Centre, at Shephards Bush, London. We arrived 15 minutes early as adviced and check in was a replica of the British Airways airport check in system, here you are given your wrist bands and Kidzo’s (Kidzanian currency) and then your adventure begins!

We all wore our wrist bands during our visit!

Leshays class teddy Leo enjoyed his day at Kidzania!!

After the 4 hours were up, the kids had a look around the Kidzania department store to see if they wanted to buy anything, which in the end they didnt so they have brought the money back home with them ready for when we go back. I plan to go back during the summer time!

Have you been to Kidzania before? What did you think of it?
