Musings: Celebrating Life with ‘Its Your Bottle’

Earlier this year, I told myself and you guys reading that you should aim to live your best life, always. Whether that means making sure you take time out of your day to reflect or treating yourself to a takeaway once a week, do it. It all ties in with self-care, doing things that make you feel happy and taking a little time out to be selfish.

Wine not?

When Briony from Its Your Bottle got in touch with me to review a product from their range, I was delighted. If you’ve read my Twitter or Instagram bio, you’ll notice that I have a penchant for white wine and this is what Briony noticed too. *hic* 

I had some doubts earlier this year about even continuing this blog as I wanted to focus on more editorial content. I’m glad I stuck with it as I’ve been more consistent than ever and its heartwarming when brands get in touch with you versus the other way around.

Your Bottle or Mine?

Anyway, Its Your Bottle are a small but growing brand specialising in personalised wine.

“These include Weddings and related events such as the Hen and Stag do, Anniversaries, Birthday Parties and also personalised wine gifts. Our aim is to provide a service which is truly tailored to you.

We aim to be as flexible as we possibly can when it comes to suiting your criteria. We offer a wide range of beautiful designs suitable for all occasions and carefully selected award winning wines to accompany it. We take pride in offering a service completely unique to each individual, it’s your wine, your way.”


But how did it taste?

Oh white wine, my best friend and my worst enemy. Being wine drunk makes me reveal all my secrets and experience the hangover from hell the next day. But the key to life is moderation, so I spaced out my tasting of this Sauvignon Blanc over a long weekend.

It was refreshing and fruity and everything I needed after the bout of hot weather the other week and just from being an adult in general. I tend to pair my wine with more wine, but this wine is apparently great with light dishes such as fish and chicken. More information about the wine can be found here. 


If or when I am betrothed, I will be ordering a crate load of personalised wines for my guests at my wedding which has yet to be scheduled because I’m kinda single. I will probably personalise it with something along the lines of ‘thank you for putting up with me whining’. But these will make great gifts for my friend’s birthdays until then! 

Its your wine, your way. Whether you want to surprise a friend or family member, or yourself, just remember everyday is a special occasion to someone!

You can shop the range here.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
