It is the final week of the summer holidays as Millie returns to school in a few days time and Gabriele will begin pre-school next month! Eek! Where does the time go? Seriously?

Every girl secretly wants to be Catwoman, even if she says she loves dogs there is a little fire burning inside of her to wear tight and stunningly glossy superhero attire.

The individual taste has been developed using authentic artisanal techniques. Unlike other vodkas, Black Moth is five times distilled and three times filtered, making it soft on the pallet and delicately flavoured with a warm and mellow taste, perfectly complementing the flavour of the black Périgord truffle. I take mine with tonic, how about you?
