    Top 5 Gifts for a Cadbury’s Chocolate Lover

    Recently, Latest Deals got in contact to see if I would like to write a post for them.

    M&S Macmillan Coffee Morning

I’m aware of what a fantastic job Macmillan professionals do and knew of the coffee mornings they encourage people to host.

    The Victoria Inn, Barnt Green Review

    A little while ago, I was invited to The Victoria Pub and Restaurant in Barnt Green. Established over 100 years ago in 1903, The Victoria Inn, on Hewell Road, is close to Alvechurch and conveniently situated off the M42 motorway. At the time of visiting, The Victoria had just undergone a refurbishment, re-opening to guests with a new look on Saturday 13th October. I was invited* to bring a guest with me to help me sample their new drinks, and my lovely momma of course jumped at the chance! (who wouldn’t?!). Right then, let’s get onto The Victoria Inn, Barnt Green review! The Outside So this was the outside area that we were…
