Stroud Brewery

As a newbie to living sustainably and trying the switch of products, I had not given much thought into alcohol and how I would find a tasty alternative to some of the booze we drink at home even though it is very little and on a rare occasion. As most of you know I do…

My John Lewis & Partners Personal Styling Experience

I admit it when John Lewis and Partners was launched into Cheltenham, I felt the hype was too much. It would be like any other John Lewis department store, the plus side was the new jobs for people and increase the footfall for the town centre. In the early days of the store opening, for…

Breakfast Loaf Recipe – Cinnamon Raisin Bread
