Champagne Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve NV

12 hours of free-flowing Charles Heidsieck Champagne – heck yes!

Mr Spittoon and I splurged on our recent trip to Thailand. Instead of buying Christmas presents and after saving like crazy we decided to put our money on business class flights on Singapore Airlines.
