Queen Victoria Building – Santa’s Swarovski Christmas Cave

Some of you might know I have two children, and a lot of the time they see me with my head buried in my laptop. So when I received an invitation to take them to a preview of the Swarovski Christmas Cave to meet with Santa at the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney, I thought it would be nice for them to get something out of my blogging for a change.

And it was well worth it.

Santa’s cave is on the second level of QVB so it is a bit quieter then other Santa locations as and they also get to see the biggest indoor Christmas tree Australia. Everything is sparkling the crystal garden is indeed beautiful and Miss 7 loved it. Mr 3 freaked out at everything to do with Santa except when it came time to tell him what he wanted for Christmas.

Santa will be there on level two of QVB from Monday 28 November.

Also speaking of Christmas Ikea have got a good campaign going on at the moment.

For every IKEA soft toy purchased between November 1 and December 24, the IKEA Foundation will donate €1 (which equates to AU$1.40) to UNICEF and Save the Children, to help improve the quality of life of children in underprivileged countries access to vaccinations, clean water, sanitation, education and protection.

They also have released a new collection of soft toys which is called CIRKUS, and you guessed it they were a circus theme. Like most of IKEA products they are reasonably priced.

Assuming this was a paid endorsement? It is nothing like your usual posts. Think a disclaimer is worth putting as I doubt anyone will begrudge you earning money from a great blog but I think I am in the majority who want to know if we are reading an advertisement or not.
And if it wasn’t paid, probably worth adding that too?

J; what’s it got to do with you? Its RR’s blog, she can do what she likes and as I see it, its for a good cause. Pls don’t speak for the majority –

J – no I didn’t get paid for the ad, however I did accept their hospitality for about an hour.
As you say I don’t usually do post like this. Paid sponsored posts have restrictions on them, like they have to be the top story for 24 hours, something that is a bit difficult on a this blog.

As this is off topic, may I ask an off topic question of your readers, RR?

Did anyone catch the name of the person who missed out on the Sunrise cash cow Thursday?

Hey Raver!
Did they have elves?
Or are they in “short supply” as reported here? – http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/we-need-a-little-christmas-cheer/story-e6freuy9-1226206227325
