There’s a Spinneys Wine Club!

I used to be a loyalty cards junkie. I swear, if a place had one and I visited even once a year, I’d have that card. But then I sat myself down and said, “Listen there, woman, your wallet’s so bloated it won’t even close – and not from money.

Every year around this time, with all the festive parties going on, we notice an increase in car crashes caused due to driving under the influence – or simply drunk driving. To combat this prominent issue – and help keep our moms sane – I’m teaming up with Kunhadi for this year under their #IfYouDrinkDontDrive campaign.
