If you know me you’d know I’m all about the cocktails and always practicing my mixology techniques at home, perfecting some of my fav cocktails and trying out new products. Recently I was introduced to Book Black Brand which makes syrups, perfect for cocktails! With the perfect combo of herbs and spice they create some delicious products that you can add to your favorite alcoholic beverage or to a virgin cocktail or soda.
This company makes handcrafted, small batch, natural syrups in an array of flavors, just add 1 part of syrup with 2 parts of your favorite spirit and 3 parts soda or seltzer and your set! Although I like to jazz it up and add bitters, fruit juices and other goodies to create the perfect concoction. From Old Fashioned’s with a smokey finish to Margarita’s with a kick of ginger, they’ve got a few to choose from to make each cocktail individual and fun! Choose from individual bottles, 3 packs, 4 packs, or cocktail kits which include a bottle, 2 glasses and 2 coasters, all straight from Rhode Island. My absolute favorite is the super smokey Modern Old Fashioned, just take a whiff, it’s unbelievable and is the perfect touch to sprucing up an Old Fashioned. If I wanted to get that smoky essence, I’d have to do it the professional way of lighting a piece of wood on fire and capturing the smoke in the glass… I’m not that fancy! I would never know how to do that! Their products;
Classic Citrus Tonic
Ginger Cardamom Lime
Cranberry Jalapeno Lime
Traditional Old Fashioned
Modern Old Fashioned
The kits are $29.00 and are the perfect house warming gift or hostess gift. Great for date nights out, just bring the box and your set while camping, at the lake or home with friends. Individual bottles are $17.99, 3 packs are $49.99 and 4 packs are $59.99. I would suggest trying out the 4 pack along with the smaller Modern OF syrup which is $14.99. Order here;

Introducing the Crunchy Mama Box and loving this hilarious name, was confused at first until I found out that crunchy means ‘a person who has adjusted or altered their lifestyle for environmental and philanthropic reasons’ which I love! This subscription focuses on eco-friendly, organic, natural and sustainable products made by small women-owned businesses! I love how they are so supporting of other mamas and women around the world. Such a great cause! Each month you can expect a new subscription box filled with 5-8 full sized items including a combo of bath & beauty products, home decor, candles, snacks and other goodies that encourage self-care and self-love including a new stone and meditation instructions. This subscription is earth conscious and focuses on bringing you, the mama bear goodies, since we all know that mama’s don’t generally take care of themselves since they are generally too busy taking care of everyone else! So let them introduce you to new sustainable products like wool dryer balls, beeswax wraps, reusable bags and more! In this box;
Wool Dryer Ball – These are very environmentally friendly as they help to dry your laundry quicker and are made from natural materials. First time trying one of these and was pleasantly surprised! I love the tip they added on their website to add a few drops of essential oils and give your clothes an added fresh scent! Love that!
Sin-Min Cocochata body beverage – Vegan and made with coconut oil, and melting at 76 degrees, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I tried this but I loved it! It smells like baked goodies, cinnamon and horchata! Yummm.
YES bar – Loving this vegan and gluten free dark chocolate chip bar.
Ivory & Iron Citrus & Eucalyptus Linen & Room Spray – Loving the smell of this, not too often you get a room spray in a sub box so was happy about getting this! Maybe I’ll add a few sprays of this to the dryer ball to get that yummy scent on my laundry!
ECOLIPS Lip + Cheek Tint – A subtle hint of colour to touch up your lips and cheeks while on the go!
Sauce dishes – Cute little blue and green leaves for holding sauces and dips, made with wheat straw fiber, plenty of uses, but also they are fair trade and zero waste.
Girasol Stone – Loving this massive stone to add to my collection. Per their website; ‘Girasol Opal is a stone of gentle yet potent calming and grounding energy. It brings strength, peace, and energy protection. It works directly with the throat and crown chakras as it brings clarity and enhances communication. You can place the stone in your home or workplace to stimulate positive thoughts and expand awareness.’ – I love this, I could use some calming and grounding energy!
