Nails Inc: Holly Walk

A rather different colour I have recently been loving is Holly Walk by Nails Inc. It is quite unlike anything else I own, and given the name and the dark green hue, I think this will be perfect for Christmas time, either with a bit of added sparkle or incorporated into some nail art, and I can't wait to try it out nearer the time. Due to the polish being metallic it does lend itself to being slightly streaky, but a good top coat sorts this right out. Otherwise, it is a great quality polish, as is usually the case with Nails Inc.

Review - UFIT Breakfast Drink

The Protein Drinks Co. is a company that was founded by nutrition experts, with the aim of a developing a range of acessible and convenient healthy, beauty and wellness protein drinks. One of their latest products, which hit shelves in June of this year, is UFIT Breakfast*, a high-protein drink intended for use on the go. Each bottle offers 15g of protein, alongisde calcium and essential vitamins; each bottle is said to contain at least 30& of vitamins C, E, and D. 
I tried the strawberry UFIT breakfast drink (it also comes in a chocolate version) one morning instead of my usual breakfast. For those that are familiar with the weightwatchers points system, this is the equivalent of 5pro-points, so about the same as a bowl of cereal with milk. The drink itself tasted really pleasant, just like strawberry milkshake, although had an after-taste much like the taste of porridge - not surprising given that one of the ingredients of UFIT is liquidised wholegrain oats. I found it reassuring that there were some oats in this drink, as it made it seem acceptable to have as a breakfast replacement rather than just a supplement. Surprisingly, this filled me up well enough to keep me going until lunch, and if I was in a hurry I would consider grabbing one of these on the go, although the £2 RRP is quite steep for my liking. The protein content is quite low; to put it into context, it is roughly half the amount you would get from a whole chicken breast.
If you like the sound of UFIT Breakfast, you can buy the drinks from Tesco, or read more online.
