Seasons greetings friends! We hope you're enjoying a wonderful festive break - whether you're holidaying somewhere fabulous, or simply staycationing at home for a little much-needed R&R.
Claudia and I have been eating and drinking far too much and reveling in a rare lie-in. This is definitely the season to indulge (pick your poison - glutton or sloth!). But we've also been devising up some fantastic plans for Mora Approved in 2013 - competitions and giveaways will be coming your way, so keep watching this space!
In the meantime, here are some links that have kept us entertained over Christmas (reading the internet is all we can do when we're in the throes of a food coma!).
