Competition – Bubbles for Gin by Popaball


Are you looking for something special to add to your gin?

Well you can add a spoonful of bubbles to your G&T, suck them and your drink up through the straw provided and bite to release their fruity flavour. In this case blueberry or lemon. You can get other flavours.


If added to your Gin and Tonic and it is super fizzy, you can watch the bubbles slowly dance their way to the top of your glass.

Essential Back to School Stationery – The List

I know the kids have only now broken up from school for the Summer holidays, but everywhere you look in the shops the aisles are full of stationery supplies. When I was young getting all my stationery bits together was one of my highlights of the back to school thing.

Essential Back to School Stationery - The List

In fact only walking through a shop this week brought back the memories when I noticed in the pencil case section they had the Pepsi can shaped ones. I had one of these when I was like 13, some 22 years ago!

Having new back to school stationery shows great intentions and purpose for the school year ahead. It gives you a real buzz, confidence and the feeling you can achieve anything this year. Nothing is impossible! Let’s be honest though, it’s also the time to show off to your mates your funky new pencil case and new pen that you hope no one else has got.
