Wednesday Round Up: 24 November 2021

Another week, another round up. However, next week I will instead be releasing my gift guide. So if you miss out on Black Friday deals, need ideas, or just want to keep it independent, this guide will be for you. This year I’ll be concentrating on independents, covering a range of gift ideas. Food, booze, […]


Brunch Review: Bloom Cafe, Manchester
