5 Must-Try Wintery Treats This July + Giveaway


Winter is here (Game of Thrones reference is always a good idea). Despite stating the obvious, a new season means getting to know the latest products and events in town. Here are five suggestions that we think you wouldn’t want to miss:

Cadbury Jaffa Blocks

The return of the popular Jaffas block is sure to set many a sweet tooth’s tummy grumbling. More exciting news: the Cadbury crew is embarking on an epic road trip in July to discover additional flavour combos that could inspire new combinations.

You could even contribute by letting them in on your pick by explaining #WhatsYourFlavourNZ on social media — whether it be Waitomo and its (jelly) glowworms or Arrowtown and its golden (honeycomb) nuggets. The shareable family block is available now at major retailers nationwide for a limited time.

NZ International Film Festival (NZIFF)

The First Monday in May (2016)

Avid moviegoers, make sure to add this event to your calendar. Key dates: 14 July – 31 July. I couldn’t miss this one, as a film fanatic myself. Make sure to view the schedule and buy your tickets soon, though!

What we’re looking forward to seeing: 1) Everybody Wants Some!! by Richard Linklater of Boyhood (watched it en route to San Francisco, this 12-year-in-the-making film just amazed me); the humorous EWS looks super groovy, and we sure can’t resist an 80s throwback!

2) The First Monday in May is a documentary by Andrew Rossi; following behind the scenes at NY Met’s 2015 costume show ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ and Anna Wintour’s celeb-studded opening ball. I was lucky to have seen the museum exhibit at MET last July. Simply stunning.

Jameson Caskmates – Stout Edition


Whiskey lovers, stout-seasoned oak barrels are calling for you. The team was pretty chuffed about the July release of Jameson Caskmates in NZ – following a hugely successful limited run in Ireland last year. Created by the Midleton Distillery in collaboration with micro-brewer, Franciscan Well Brewery in Cork, Jameson Caskmates offers a new taste experience that will satisfy the appetite of whiskey enthusiasts, Jameson drinkers and craft beer fans.

Want to go for a spin at the Ice Rink? Aotea Square’s popular mid-winter destination is for everyone to enjoy. It’s made of 100% ice so you wouldn’t have to worry about authenticity — just remember to wear your favourite woollies for ultimate warmth and comfort. This is a perfect icy atmosphere if you’re stuck in the city throughout this month. Aotea Square Ice Rink is open until 31 July.

Dry July – Swisse Liver Detox

If you’re having a month-free alcohol, Swisse can help you love your liver this July. The Ultiboost Lecithin is naturally derived from soybeans and contains compounds that support the maintenance of healthy liver function. The Ultiboost Liver Detox helps to settle the stomach — the formula contains turmeric, which helps combat potential free radical damage. The liver is the largest internal organ in our body, so we have to make sure that we’re keeping it in shape!
