Thanks & Congrats!

I my new mug

Food blogging can have many rewards - wonderful comments from readers, speciality food items to try, or even a trip to see product production.
One of the most thoughtful (& delightful) things I received recently was my own special Cherrapeño mug, printed with my banner. I LOVE IT!!

The mug was courtesy of Forever Better - thank you - and was accompanied by some lovely cupcakes, there was even one with Cherrapeño banner icing, unfortunately it had got so squashed in the post I was unable to take a photo. It was all part of celebrating Miele's recent award from Which? where they won the Best Domestic Appliance Brand Award for the 3rd time in 4 years!

Congratulations!

I attended the champagne celebrations at the Miele showroom in London, with camera but minus battery which was still sitting at home on charge :( fortunately I did have a little back-up camera so you can see the award they received. It was a super evening and my first time at the London showroom, which is rather grand and in a great location, just off Regent Street.

Don't forget to pop by the Miele stand and say hello.

Great mug! I think you might start a trend here...

Margaret said...

Your banner lends itself to being printed on a mug Nic - it looks really impressive.
Next time I go to London, I think a trip to Regent Street will be on the list!

Wonderful mug - I've always like your banner. I still haven't worked out how to have a banner - I tried adding one of my photos but it just messed everything up so I gave up on that particular project. The cupcakes look really cute too - shame you didn't manage to get a photo of the extra special one.
