Mother’s Day with Moonpig

Last week I was invited to the Mother’s Day with Moonpig event in Manchester*. Now that Valentine’s Day passed, I think is only appropriate to talk about Mother’s Day. Have a look on their website for more details and range of cards, gifts, and flowers. I arrived at the lovely venue they picked up in […]

Watch a movie after you do your Christmas Shopping at Metquarter

Christmas Shopping at Metquarter

Is it too early to talk about Christmas? I think it isn’t, I’ve already got my advent calendar and I also started thinking of what I should buy for Christmas. I was delighted to be invited to the Press Day at Metquarter*. You know that I’ve blogged about them lots of times so far. So, […]

My husband bought a pack of mince pies, we talked about the day we’ll decorate the Christmas tree, so having some Christmas themed sandwiches was only appropriate. As my […]
