You all know how much I love travelling, but i’ve never told you how much I love being at home in Stourbridge.
There are lots of cool, new places popping up, so I just wanted to share some of my favourites with you.
Cock n Bull has such a cool vibe, it’s one of the newest hotspots to grab a bite to eat! They do amazing burgers – which are HUGE, loads of cool chicken dishes, plus quite a few veggie options for me! My go-to of course is the Halloumi Burger. (Anything Halloumi is always a winner right?)
They have a great drinks menu, including a ‘Black Country Bramble’ which you have to try when you’re in the Black Country 😉
If you’re boring like me though, you can go for the Vanilla milkshake or go all out and opt for the Caramel Pretzel Shake!

This new little hotspot opened its doors in September and has been a huge hit ever since.
They have an amazing cake bar, with cakes freshly made every morning by the chef & Owner Richie – The raspberry & white chocolate brownies are to die for! The selection is insane & different each day… (Sticky toffee & ginger cake, white chocolate & cherry macaroon, jam & coconut cake, pavlova and SO much more!)
They do healthy breakfasts & lunches too, including a great selection for Veggies.
Hair & Beauty
Beauty Bella Boutique is one of the friendliest beauty salons I’ve ever been too. You feel so welcome as soon as you walk in, the team are all so lovely.
They offer lots of new, innovative treatments including body sculpting, fat freezing, ultrasound cavitation and 3D lipo. They also do the usual treatments like facials, nails, eyelash tint, wax, brows etc.
They also have specialist clinics for aesthetics at certain times of the year too.
Plus, I’ve just seen they offer a 3D chin freeze….WHO KNEW THAT WAS A THING. I’ll take 6 of those please!
The Hive opened in May 2015. They’ve been going from strength to strength ever since.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to have their hair done surrounded by flamingos & foliage with pic ‘n’ mix on tap? It really is an instagrammers dream!
The team work wonders on your hair, they’ll do everything they can to make you feel a million dollars. I didn’t know what I wanted when I walked in, but Georgie got it exactly right and here are the results…
They don’t stop at hair. They do nails & eyebrows too, along with wedding packages for your special day.
Reflect offer SO many different treatment types, there really is something for everyone!
Lisa is the skin director in the clinic, she’ll meet with you for a detailed consultation before personalising your treatment plan to ensure you receive the best results. She always has the best advice and is a real expert in what she does.
I can fully recommend the HydraFacials. I get quite dry skin & I find they really help! I always leave feeling totally refreshed & relaxed.
Bella Boo are an independent fashion boutique, selling ladies clothes and accessories.
They also have little baby items called “Bella Bambino” – Too cute!
I know the Jewellery Quarter isn’t in Stourbridge, but the shop owners are based in Wollaston…So that totally counts right?!
I just couldn’t post this article & leave out Bond Jewellery. They are phenomenal at what they do & the quality of Diamonds they offer.
Jamie at Bond has designed all of our wedding Jewellery, plus re-designed Jewellery passed down through our families generations to re-design & bring back to life. There are no ends to Jamie’s talent!
Get in touch with him & he can design your dream piece of Jewellery.
Baby Prestige UK are an online store, with their head quarters being based in Stourbridge. (I bet you didn’t know that little nugget!)
Their passion for modern toys and accessories mean they provide customers with nothing but the highest quality of products. I’ve ordered so many gifts from them and they’ve all been perfect.
Also, they kindly donate 1% of all sales directly to Luna’s Legacy. They’re such a great bunch!
C&R design are a company based in Stourbridge hiring out everything you’ll need to make your event look beautiful.
They cater for every kind of event, from baby showers & birthdays to weddings & engagements!
They have so many items to choose from, including the ever popular flower wall, candy corner, donut wall (…the DREAM!) decorative ladders & selfie frames etc.
Most of the items have been lovingly hand-made by the team, so you can expect high quality and amazing service from Charlie & Rebecca themselves.
One of the best decisions we ever made was hiring Wes for our wedding videography.
He is totally brilliant! We barely knew he was there throughout most of the day, yet he has captured all of our favourite memories!
Being able to re-live special moments over & over again is something we really love to look back on.
If you’re looking for a wedding videographer, I honestly can’t recommend Wes & The Wedding Memory team enough!
You can watch our special day HERE
Victoria is an incredible photographer!
She really specialises in capturing those special moments in your life to be able to look back on and cherish, which I think is SO important!
She’s absolutely amazing and will capture any of your special moments in a super creative way.
Baby Glowbugs hold weekly sessions in Norton. I went along to a session last year and the little ones absolutely loved it!
It’s a glow in the dark baby group, suitable from babies age 0 right up until pre-walking. Each week, Sarah will create a different session for the babies to enjoy. It’s great being so local!
Sarah’s been amazing at helping us fundraise for Luna’s Legacy too.
These businesses all have such amazing people working behind the scenes. They work so hard to offer us different products and services, lets keep supporting them & showing the love, to keep Stourbridge thriving!
