Exploring Cornwall: Curiouser Creations

Yesterday I visited what is quite possibly the most wonderful place in Cornwall - Curiouser Creations*. Rebecca Olver has really upped the game when it comes to quirky coffee shops with this Alice in Wonderland themed cafe. The attention to detail with the decor and cakes is incredible - and the coffee's pretty damn good… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Curiouser Creations

Exploring Cornwall: Tapas at The Rock Pool Cafe

Last week we had our first date night in six months - and it was worth the wait. We were treated to a tapas night at The Rock Pool Cafe*, one of my favourite local spots.

Exploring Cornwall: The best fish and chips!

I love The Mexico Inn. It's no longer my local so I relish any opportunity to go back. When The Range opened a few weeks ago I made sure to pop up to check it out on a Tuesday so that I had the perfect excuse to go over the road and introduce my mum… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The best fish and chips!

Exploring Cornwall: Newquay Zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium

If you're looking for a fun family day out in Cornwall you can't beat Newquay. Traditionally playground of surfers and twenty-something clubbers, Newquay is also great for animal-loving families. During the last Bank Holiday weekend Luke's parents took us out for the day. We could go pretty much anywhere and I thought Jenson would love… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Newquay Zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium

Recently I went to Dolly's Tea Room & Wine Bar in Falmouth for my friend's hen do. The venue was so beautiful and the food so tasty that I just had to photograph everything and post a review.

Storytime at The Craft Box

I've blogged before about how much I love The Craft Box in Penzance (there's also one in Helston) but it needs another shout out thanks to recent additions. It's fun for all the family, a great place to make a personal gift and there's always tasty treats. Recently owner April has added a cute play… Continue reading Storytime at The Craft Box

Seriously, how is it already March? It feels like it was just Christmas! But at least it means spring is on the way - plenty of opportunities for fun days in the park and on the beach with the boys. Here's a look back at a cold and stormy February. 1. Presents from Dom (check… Continue reading My life in photos: February 2017

I make a note of things I want to include in my Friday Favourites post throughout the week and for the first time in a while I came up with way more than five.

Saturday Share #85

My round up of blogosphere faves this week includes girl bossing, blog admin, a Cornish bucket list and all of the chocolate recipes! Every time someone mentions Girlboss I'm more tempted to read it. Must add it to the list. I'm thinking about creating a newsletter when I rebrand/relaunch in a couple of months so… Continue reading Saturday Share #85

This week has very much been about appreciating the little things. With the weather too cold and meh to go out and do anything fun, we've spent a lot of time watching (and re-watching) Frozen. Here's this week's highlights. 1. Jenson being cute AF. I know I think he's super cute 99.9% of the time… Continue reading Friday Favourites #33
