Sometimes using the most recent review in your advertorial isn’t really the best idea. I know they want to make it look genuine and unedited, but really?

I love that the Literary Gift Company would pull stock because of bad grammar. This is the way forward.
Thanks to Thrifty Gal for this one – and good luck to her on her adventures into the world of freelance writing.
The word they’re looking for in this advert is whatever not what and ever separately.
In this context, the word should be a pronoun – meaning ‘no matter what’ and is one word. The form that comes out here is interrogative so: ‘What ever (is) your budget?’ which clearly doesn’t make much sense without an additional verb.
A rule of thumb is if you can remove the word ‘ever’ without ruining the meaning then using two words is fine. In reality, use of ‘what ever’ often comes across as a little bit affected and formal:
‘What ever is his problem?’
‘What ever did you see?’
and then there’s the rest of this advert… *sighs*
I should never let my grammar radar down, I was distracted by the QR code on this advert (people at work have been asking about them), when obviously I should have been watching their language.
Sort it out Pizza Express (I refuse to use their camel case…).
Thanks Thrifty Gal for prompting me to pull my Metro paper out of the recycling bin.
