Weight Loss Plaque Review

Weight Loss Plaque


You probably know I’ve been on Slimming World for a few years now. I’ve been meaning to get a weight loss plaque for ages but never got round to it. got in touch and asked if I’d like a personalised plaque so of course, I said yes!

There a few different designs; I picked one with my result for the week and my total result. I decided against one with a target on as I’m not sure what my target is going to be yet.

This little plaque is lovely. I was really impressed with the way it came packaged; It was in a silver envelope and when I was opening it, it felt like I was opening a present!

It even came with a little stick of chalk!

The plaque arrived in a week when I’d gained half a pound! Hopefully next week I’ll be able to change that plus to a minus 🙂

There are lots of different personalised plaques and framed prints that make excellent gifts for the special people in your life.

My Gorgeous New Cloud Family Tree Papercut Frame

Cloud Family Tree Papercut


I can’t begin to tell you how much I love my new cloud family tree papercut from TwentyFingers. We have a big blended family and I did wonder whether the people at Twenty Fingers would be able to fit us all on.
I need not have worried, though, because upon reading the description it says they can fit up to 100 names on and even if you need more names, you just have to contact them and they’ll see what they can do.

Speedy Service

I placed my order on the 24th July, got an email on the 25th to say it had been shipped and it arrived on the 26th.
I was really impressed with the speed, the excellent service and the quality of the finished product.

When I unwrapped it from the bubble wrap, I was so excited;  I love anything to do with keepsakes and family mementoes.

I put Ant and me at the top followed by Ant’s kids:

Jonathan and his wife, Elaine
Jourdain and his soon to be wife, Netty
Jason and his partner, Gemma
Kellyann and her partner, Ian
Chantal (the eagle-eyed amongst you may notice it’s spelt differently on the plaque. This was totally my fault. Katy and Chantal died when they were only a few months old and I had forgotten that it was spelt with al, not elle. I felt awful when Ant told me and couldn’t stop apologising. but he forgave me. I’d also like to apologise to the siblings for spelling their sister’s name wrong)

followed by our grandsons (Jason’s boys)

Great Personalised Gift

The design is gorgeous and what’s even better is that you can choose not only the colour of the frame but also the colour of the paper; there are loads of paper colours to choose from.

These would make the perfect Christmas gift for everyone, (yes, I said the C word… should know me by now, I buy for Christmas the whole year through!) I know my mum would love to receive one!

Thank you to everyone at Twenty Fingers, I LOVE it!

A ClaireaBella birthday present for me from ToxicFox

ClaireaBella handpainted bag

Oh my gosh, I LOVE this birthday present from the very nice people at ToxicFox and ClaireaBella. I seriously got so excited when it arrived that I couldn’t stop smiling :0) It’s so pretty and sparkly. Kaycee wanted to pinch it to use as a school bag, until she saw it had been personalised with my name! Haha :0)

ClaireaBella laptop bag

It’s got lots of space inside, which I originally intended to use for my laptop but it’s far too nice to only use occasionally when I go to my mums or on holiday so it’s now my everyday bag!

I love the three compartments and the inner pocket because I like my bag to be organised. My last bag was just one big bag with two little pockets and it used to drive me mad trying to find something in the big mess.

I tried to capture the glittery sparkles but the picture doesn’t do it justice.

ClaireaBella hand made with love

These bags are hand painted to your specifications. For example, this ClaireaBella Jute Satchel has the following options: personal text, hairstyle, hair colour, dress colour, eye colour and skin tone.

ClaireaBella hand painted face

I’ve got green eyes and I’ve usually got red hair (although it’s tinted purple at the moment but that wasn’t an option, sadly!) so those are my choices, along with a pink dress and yes, those are little gems on the dress :0)
The only thing that would make this bag better than it already is, would be an adjustable strap as it’s a bit too long for me. I did think about tying a knot in it but then I worried it might dig into my shoulder so I’m leaving it as it is.

ClaireaBella bag

I think it’s fair to say that I’m a big fan of ClaireaBella and I now want a glitter latte mug and iPhone case!

Please note: I was gifted the bag in return for an honest review.

Snapfish Personalised Christmas Presents – Review

Before I start I need to tell Nanny, Granddad and Daddy not to read any further, otherwise they’ll spoil their surprise Christmas presents!

Christmas presents spoiler alert

I love getting personalised calendars for the grandparents at Christmas as they’re always so happy to receive them.

Sorry for the poor quality of the photo. I’m not getting very good results using my iPhone for photos recently.

I’ve used Snapfish before as well as a couple of other sites that offer personalised photo gifts and I have to say Snapfish is my favourite.
The personalised photo calendars are great quality. The paper used isn’t that cheap flimsy stuff you get when you buy calendars with pictures of kittens or puppies on!

You can choose between kitchen calendars, desk calendars or poster calendars. I picked kitchen calendars for the Grandparents with the Four Seasons backgrounds.

I wanted to get some gifts for Ant as well as he loves personalised gifts from his children so I bought him a photo mug and an animated bookmark from the animated photo gifts range.
I’m thinking about ordering a 3D bookmark for myself because I think they look great 🙂

Bags of Love – A Review

I recently received* a personalised Kindle case from a Bags of Love, a
website that specialises in photographic present ideas.

The case arrived within 2 days of being ordered, which was the first thing
that impressed me.
The second thing to impress me was the actual product!

To say I’m pleased with the kindle case would be a huge understatement. I LOVE it!
It’s soft to the touch, the quality of the printed photos on the material is excellent and it’s really well made.
My photos don’t do it justice at all!

I spent ages on the site, trying to decide what to order!
They have birthday gifts, valentines gifts, new baby gifts, anniversary gifts for men, Christmas gifts and a whole host of other gift ideas.

I’ve seen loads of things that I know family members would love to receive at Christmas or as birthday gifts and loads more things that I’d love to treat myself to!

I’ve added the link to my favourites and I’ll be visiting it the next time I need a personalised gift 🙂
