Comfy gift boxes

Hello all,

So this week is one of my friend's birthdays, every year I usually send flowers which are always very well received... but albeit a bit boring and a lot of money for something that will die in a week (don't get me wrong i love getting flowers).

Looking for something different I stumbled across and it is genius! A very wide range of gift boxes for birthdays both for him and for her, pamper nights in, moving house, new baby, new mums, get well soon for adults and kids... the list goes on! All the products are useful and long lasting and the best thing is THEY INCLUDE CHOCOLATE!!! Every woman's dream!! And all this for the price that a standard bunch of flowers would cost!

So my friend's birthday present is purchased and I thought I would share the love of this fab new company. The stress of finding a different and interesting present has now gone with a few easy clicks.... Comfy Gift Boxes I SALUTE YOU!

Amie :-)

LBA winner’s announced across the country!

Today the Prime Minister congratulated Local Business Accelerators winners up and down the country saying, "Entrepreneurship, creativity and ambition are essential for our economic recovery and through Local Business Accelerators, newspapers are supporting some great new British businesses to grow, and helping to boost their local economy.”

We launched LBA back in October. Since then, the scheme has gathered momentum. The Business Growth Fund, an investment initiative worth £2.5bn, has teamed with LBA to identify investment opportunities amongst the list of entrants. The Prime Minister went on to say, “It's brilliant that so many promising young companies, from such a wide range of sectors, are benefitting from this excellent initiative.”

Deborah Meaden, the LBA ambassador said, "I wish the newspapers, businesses and their mentors every success over the coming months."

We’ll be announcing an over all national winner very soon!

Bread Fit For Chanel!

I am loving a food feature on Cool Hunter about amazing, 'Designer Bakeries'. The basis is the breads should be amazing, natural, artesian, flavoursome but the environment it is sold in should be equally as amazing. They asked their readers to contribute examples and the list ranges from Greece to Italy to Australia and Japan. The list contains the most incredible bakeries that are so stylish I'd happily live in them! There didn't appear to be any examples from the UK. As 2012 is Londons year, which bakeries, that fit the 'designer' criterior, would you recommend that are located in The Big Smoke? It's kind of ridiculous as I don't eat wheat / gluten but I'm still fascinated! It's nice to 'look and 'fatten the eyes' sometimes:)

Cool Earth & St. Luke's

Hi all,

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! The whole office seems to be on January diets/ detoxes and so far sticking to New Years Resolutions, what's yours?

So as we have blogged about before, we are partners with Cool Earth, a charity working with local communities to secure forests at risk of being destroyed ad we are pleased to share with you our Annual Statement for 2011, showing what good work our funding has gone towards.

We are very proud of what we have achieved with Cool Earth so far and look forward to continuing the good work in 2012!
