The Festive Christmas Quiz

standard December 5, 2017 Leave a response

Christmas is my favourite time of year. Bar none. No scrooging in this house – our tree is up, we’ve already started the shopping and the wrapping and I don’t even mind the odd Christmas song in the shops. Bring it on I say! All I want now is a bit of snow!

As you can imagine, we’re going to get very, very festive on this blog over the next month or so, but we’re beginning with a general overview of the festive season in our house. This is a quiz all about my Christmas favourites… the songs, the food and the fun activities we get up to. This is really the first Christmas where Short Rib has been properly aware of what’s going on, so it’s heading to be the most exciting one yet!

Review: Personalised Cufflinks by Bella & Bow

That being said, I bought my first Christmas present a couple of weeks ago and to be honest, I think it’s going to be pretty hard to top these personalised cufflinks.

I absolutely love personalised presents. So when thinking about what to get for certain members of our family, I knew that for Wes’ Dad, I wanted something personalised from Short Rib. He lives in the north of Scotland, so we don’t see him very often at all. I thought it would be nice to get him something from our boy whilst he’s still super small.

Enter the amazing Bella & Bow.

A three woman band of Fiona, Greta and Jenni and they make the most AMAZING stuff which is personalised with handprints, footprints or just text of your choice. So when I stumbled across their cufflinks, I was super sold.
