Dupe Review: Aldi’s Beachfront Pink Moscato vs. Barefoot Pink Moscato

It should be common knowledge by now that I love a bargain. I’m a self-confessed yellow sticker hunter when it comes to supermarket shopping, though I’m not one of the people who puts their trolley in front of the whole fridge to block everyone else, or waits while the staff member stickers things up, but […]

Review: Marie’s Room

One of the few benefits of being stuck at home during this weird pseudo-lockdown period in the UK is suddenly having more time than ever before. Yes, I’ve been working throughout the pandemic – having been very lucky to have a decent work from home setup, as well as working on a project that can […]

Review: Call of Cthulhu

I recently finished Call of Cthulhu by Cyanide, a Lovecraftian survival horror game with a heavy focus on a creepy, twisting narrative. Spoilers; I loved it! Read the full Geek and Tonic review today.

Review: Afterparty

There have been countless versions of Hell in modern media. Sure, there’s a lot of common themes – torture, evil incarnate, cloven hooves etc – but I’m not sure there’s ever been a portrayal quite like Afterparty‘s.

Lidl, the crafty minxes, have come up with yet another cheeky Gin Liqueur to join their acclaimed Hortus ranks, this time with the delectable pairing of Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower. This […]

Review: St Anne’s on the Sea Chocolate Orange Gin

I should preface this review by saying that – despite the title of this blog – I’m 50/50 on how much I enjoy gin as a sipping drink, largely because a lot of commercialised gins end up tasting very bland and really quite abrasive. I usually put gins into 1 (or maybe 2) of 4 […]

Review: Hortus Plum and Cinnamon Gin Liqueur

I wonder if Lidl anticipated the level of success they would have when they first launched the Gin Liqueurs range, for a success it has been. Every time a new Hortus Gin Liqueur comes out, I see it plastered all over social media and bargain websites such as HotUKDeals etc within a day of it […]

Review: The Division

Since becoming an ‘adult’ I’ve found a distinct lack of time to dedicate to games, so I’ve started leaning towards quality over quantity – specifically, ones that allow me to have quality time with my husband as well as satisfy my gaming itch. This has led us to games like Destiny, the TellTale series, Divinity […]
