When I was first contacted about Flyte energy drink, I thought this opportunity was made for me.

Anyone who knows me knows how much of an addict I am when it comes to energy drinks, which is odd because I don’t like coffee. Energy drinks are a lifesaver for me because I always have trouble sleeping and getting up for early mornings. Because I’m not a majorly experienced driver either, I always worry about driving early in the morning in the dark when I have my delivery shifts at work, because I’m so scared of falling asleep at the wheel!

So of course I was really excited to try Flyte – the latest energy drink on the block.

To first tell you a bit about Flyte, it’s important to know that it’s an entirely clean energy drink, meaning it’s sourced from nature, powered by organic caffeine, non-GMO and has absolutely no added artificial ingredients or added sugar like you’d find in most energy drinks.

On paper, it sounds like just a fizzy fruity drink and in some ways, that’s exactly what it tastes like, but it has the added bonus of being an energy drink too.

After reading all about the product and receiving it to my door, I’m instantly sold. Before trying Flyte, I was a total Red Bull addict (how I haven’t had a heart attack before, I don’t know…) but knew it was incredibly unhealthy for me. It gave me an energy boost, sure, but at the cost of feeling a comedown afterwards and putting unnecessary artificial ingredients, it just wasn’t worth it. So I was really excited to hear about an energy drink that does the complete opposite of that whilst also giving me a boost.

I also love the packaging – it’s so sleek and sophisticated with each flavour showcasing just the right amount of colour for each bottle. Each is a durable glass bottle too – though is carbon positive – and just genuinely has a really nice look to it.

The ingredients don’t just offer an energy boost though. The ingredients include 100mg organic caffeine extracted from green coffee to keep you alert, 100 mg maca root – a super ingredient to improve focus, 330 mg Shizandra – a super berry for your blood oxygenation and 100 mg gryffonia – for serotonin lovers to lift mood and bring positivity – so all round a great uplifting drink!

But does it do the job and how does it taste?

I’m not a huge fan of fizzy water/fruit drinks and I do like drinks such as Coke and Dr Pepper etc with tons of  flavour, but I was pleasantly surprised with the four flavours Flyte offers: Red Berries, Green Mango, Citrus Lemon and Orange Clementine. Each has a delicious flavour which isn’t too overbearing and genuinely tastes great.

I found myself feeling an instant boost during my first few sips of Flyte. It wasn’t an overbearing boost which rushed to my head, but I can honestly say that after a few minutes I felt less sleepy, my eyelids didn’t droop into closing so much and I felt refreshed and energetic. In fact I was actually surprised at how well it worked and how long it lasted.

What’s better though is that I haven’t felt guilty drinking Flyte. Other energy drinks I’d pick up to drink with my breakfast, on the road, or have sips throughout the day when I needed a boost. With Flyte, I can drink it at any time of day and not worry about the effect it has on my body or anything like that, which is really great.

Flyte has become my staple drink – I always have one in my bag, in my car and in the fridge at work (causing colleagues to ask curiously about the new drink!), and have yet to grow bored of the flavours. It does the job and makes me feel great too – so it’s a win win, really.

Currently, Flyte can only be purchased online – a six pack costs only £12.00, making each drink a mere £2 each – cheap as chips. I’m totally honoured to have the opportunity to review and help get behind a brand that is really all about being healthy and good to your body though, and it’s clear to see the team behind Flyte are really passionate about a healthy and natural lifestyle.

Will you be trying Flyte any time soon? Let me know!

Back in October, I was lucky enough to receive my own desk from Kit Out My Office and it’s still one of my favourite blogging perks ever!

Having my own space and desk to blog at is such a great thing, I really appreciate having somewhere to call just mine at my boyfriend’s place so I’ve been over the moon with this desk.

However, when the desk arrived, I obviously wanted to get a review post up as soon as possible so back then, the desk wasn’t as personalized (or looking as pretty!) as it is now. Therefore I thought I’d do an update post (as I said I might) to show you all what it looks like now and to also talk about how it’s held up.

So because my boyfriend lives in a shared flat with some of his colleagues, we (well he) was moved to the smaller room recently, which has actually turned out to be a good thing. We’ve moved some furniture around to make more space, and I have the perfect little corner for my desk – plus a wall!

I have yet to get something sturdy enough to attach my board to the wall so for the meantime, this cute little wire board from Primark just leans against the back wall. I only have on it one postcard from Paperchase so far, and I have left the others that came with it as they’re cute. This will be updated with inspiring prints and photos soon, hopefully.

Above that and to the left is a hanging bag set I got from Wish, which we both use just to store small bits and bobs like my hairbands, his vape stuff etc. Next to that is a sticker I stole from him, ha.

On the desk, I still have my week planner and my magazine holder, which is now filled with recipes, magazines, notebooks etc. I’ve added a fake succulent plant (also from Primark and just until I can trust myself to keep a real one alive), another cute (currently unopened) candle from Vinegar Hill and a jar full of gold paperclips from Wilkinson’s. I don’t use them, they just look stylish.

I picked up this colourful pencil case from TK Maxx and I finally have a chair! It’s just one from the kitchen that will make do for now but I’ll get my own chair likely when we move into a new place. I’m on the lookout for a nice stylish cushion for it – perhaps a seasonal one.

The desk has held up exceptionally well – proving that despite being my first bit of DIY, I did do it properly and it didn’t just collapse a few weeks in. We moved the drawer across a little in the end to give me a little more space when I have my legs crossed and my only qualm is that when the cat comes in and walks all over it to get to the windowsill, he always leaves lots of hair so I’m often having to wipe it down, ha!

Overall though, I’m still really pleased with it. It actually gives the whole room a more stylish but homely feel to it and being that it’s such a small room that doesn’t even belong to me, it’s really nice having my own space and a desk of my own.
