    M&S Selly Oak Opening and Food Review

    A few months ago, I was invited* to go to the new M&S Foodhall that had opened in Selly Oak. The store is located in Selly Oak Shopping Park, which has only recently opened. It houses a range of stores, including Argos, Next, Nando’s, Card Factory and of course the M&S Foodhall. It is also home to Superdrug, and you may remember me posting recently about its opening. I love the food from M&S so of course jumped at the chance to go and visit. I couldn’t wait to see what the new store looked like, the new ranges they had and of course try some food! So here is my…

    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.

    Degustabox December and January Review

    So if you’ve read my last few Degustabox posts (check them out here: August, September, October, and November) you’ll know I’ve fallen a bit behind with them. It all stemmed from me falling pregnant towards the end of last year, and being a bit funny about eating different types of food. Because of this, I didn’t get round to trying some of the items in my Degustabox* straight away, thus delaying my reviews. However, as I’m much further along along in my pregnancy now, and totally fine with eating, I’m trying really hard to catch up! In an attempt to do this successfully, I’ve decided to combine my review of the December and January…

    Degustabox August Review

    So back in August I was very kindly sent* the Degustabox to review. I must admit, it was totally like Christmas when the parcel arrived. It was a complete surprise of what would be inside, and I couldn’t wait to see what I had received. Here, you lovely lot, is my Degustabox August Review… What is a Degustabox? Degustabox is basically a monthly surprise food box. Inside there are 10 – 15 products and many are completely new to the market. The boxes are £12.99 incl. delivery. Whilst it is a subscription service, no commitment is necessary. They just ask that you let them know a few days before the…
