Have you experienced a freebie from a promotion stall? It could be a sample of a new washing powder, a perfume or a hand cream. I always try to take a sneaky peek to see if the freebie takes my fancy.
Today, I was about to walk past one these stalls until I saw a crowd of people munching on something and as you know I love my food! I took a closer look and noticed they were promoting a new doughnut and before I even knew it I was straight to the front of the queue to have a free taste. It was possibly the best piece of doughnut that I have ever sampled – I ended up buying the box. A deliciously expensive but tasty free #blinkofbliss!
What kind of freebie has been your #blinksofbliss?

Do you remember Joey from Friends? He never ever shares his food. Do you find your friend, husband, boyfriend or family member is eating something extremely fattening and you just want a small, tiny or little bite.
My husband gets irritated every time I want a bite so I always try my hardest not to ask. So, we are in a restaurant:
Husband: I am ordering this cheesecake, what about you?
Me: Oh, I am on a diet (See Post 53). I will have tea.
Husband: Are you sure? I won’t let you have a bite…(serious look)… I mean it!
Me: Err nope I am fine and promise I won’t have a bite (mental note, I can resist).
This gorgeous cheese cake arrives and my mouth starts to water more than Niagara Falls. I tried hard not to give in, sipped my tea slowly, tried to picture me in a bikini (okay, this will never happen) but nothing worked. When my husband looked away, I quickly grab my tea-spoon, delved in and had a #blinksofbliss bite!
Can you resist a dessert blinksofbliss?

My supermarket is a food rush – trolleys crashing, shelves stacking, shoppers queuing and tills beeping. It’s like there are never enough hours in the day with things to do, people to see, places to get too – rush, rush and rush.
I was rushing away when I received possibly the most loveliest service ever from my cashier – Elaine (yep – I actually took a second to read her name badge!).
It was a #blinksofbliss service as I could have talked to her all day and almost forgot about the rushing queue behind me!
Have you received #blinksofbliss service?

Chocolate, nuts, vanilla surrounded by waffle cone on a hot summers day is absolute bliss. Okay, so summer hasn’t arrived here in London but lets savour these blinks!
It’s like for those few minutes as you tackle the delightful feast time stands still. After unwrapping the wrapper, you begin to tackle bit by bit the nuts so delicately planted on top of the vanilla/chocolate mix. Then, you start to bite away at the vanilla whilst simultaneously crunching and nibbling away at the waffle cone. Slowly, the Cornetto disappears and just as you think it can’t get any better, it does!
For me, the blink of bliss comes right at the end of the cone – the bit full of chocolate. It’s the perfect ending to a yummy Cornetto. If only it didn’t have to end!
What is your favourite #blinksofbliss when eating a Cornetto?
