Ruth Writes is a 30-something Liverpool based blog covering mid-size fashion, pescatarian food and beauty.
After a series of sponsored posts and beauty blogs, I wanted to bring you another site ‘down and write’ kinda post. I can’t believe we’re into December tomorrow. The year has flown over in a blur with this year’s stand out moments being getting a new job and our dog, Molly.
As we gear up for December and the many festive nights out, Christmas meals and parties I’ve enjoyed being a home bird these past few weeks.
We decided to go for a pub lunch last weekend. Something we did every weekend when we both lived at home but very rarely since living together so we went for lunch at the Saracens Head in Halsall. It was a perfectly cold, winters day so we had lunch and then headed home for a dog walk before it went dark. Perfect kinda Saturday.
Last week I was kindly invited along to REX on Bold Street in Liverpool to attend their pop-up blogger evening for Kilner Jars. The store was so festive and sparkly. It’s such a magpie kinda shop in the sense that it stocks everything that you didn’t realise you needed! I adored the personalised chopping and cheeseboard section – so much so, I really want one!
I’m a big fan of Kilner jars, using them as drinking glasses at home and having a large jar to make overnight oats for my breakfasts at work. I was keen to have a nosey at the assortment of jars and find out what was on offer! Sadly I couldn’t stay for the main event, having to get home to my four-legged friend, but following the event on Twitter, it looked fab!
I was very kindly gifted a new jar by the staff in REX and I can’t wait to use it to make very festive hot chocolates – expect a post soon!
