Riverside Lifestyle is run by a busy Mum – who dreamt of bringing that luxurious riverside cottage bliss into the homes of all, allowing us all to take a step away from the stresses of everyday life, and to help us all achieve that she opened up Riverside Lifestyle a home of luxury items to help you relax and rejuvenate – with gifts from throws to candles to jams and marmalades.
Of course they couldn’t forget Mother’s Day and they have a range of delights in there shop that could really spoil your Mum – they were kind enough to send me this gorgeous basket of goodies to try.
The first thing that hit me when this box arrived was the aroma emanating from it, Riverside Lifestyle work with Lavender and Oil as those are the ingredients at the heart of their lifestyle dream and believe me this smelt amazing. The basket included 5 things that you can buy in their shop.
Seville orange Marmalade £4.90 for 340g
White Lavender Truffles £10.99 for a box (16 chocolates I believe)
Bath and Shower Gel Lotion + Body Cream £24 (brought in a trio alongside Hand Cream)
Lavender Bath Creamer £3 (for 2)
My Mum describes the marmalade as ‘grown up marmalade’ due to the fact it is full of thick strips of orange peel – we all came to the unanimous decision that it has to be some of the nicest we had ever tried, it goes amazingly on toast, and I really can’t see it lasting much longer.
I have never eaten Lavender before – or even thought about eating it so I wasn’t sure what to expect with the truffles, it was really quite nice though, I think it could definitely be an acquired taste – but I wouldn’t say no to giving it a try again as I think I could easily come to love them.
Once you have treated your Mum or yourself to a delicious breakfast with a naughty ending it’s time to draw a delightful bath.
Make sure to pop in the gorgeous bath creamer which is filled with luxurious oils which help moisturise you and is rolled liberally in real lavender petals – in fact I’m pretty sure this is the culprit of that amazing smell that greeted me on opening the box, while bathing in the creamer you of course have to wash with the lavender bath wash to help enrich the relaxing experience and make you completely surrounded in the lavender fragrance. Then on exiting the bath to keep that relaxing going you pop on the body lotion to help start of the day the right way.
So all I can say about this hamper is some really amazing products we have all agreed we do need more of the marmalade and I would definitely grab more of the bath creamers, and give the other bits some more tries .
