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

Self-Care Sunday #17

A tidy desk = a tidy mind. Or at least that's what I'm hoping. Since National Stationery Week I've had all my new purchases and review post goodies stashed in a corner of the office and piled high on my desk - not good for the ol' creative juices. So the other night, having scheduled… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #17

Why politics matters to me – and why it should matter to you #BloggersWhoVote

Growing up I didn't really care/know much about politics. All I knew was that my dad would watch a lot of news and Prime Ministers Questions, etc, and it looked really boring. People kept talking over each other yet no-one was really saying much of anything. What was it all about? Fast forward to the… Continue reading Why politics matters to me – and why it should matter to you #BloggersWhoVote

A Cornish Geek’s history of blogging

12 years ago today I wrote my first blog post. 12 years ago! Back then I was 17 and working towards my A Levels, Crazy Frog was number one, Revenge of the Sith was top of the box office and Christopher Ecclestone was bowing out as Doctor Who. MySpace was still a baby, Facebook was… Continue reading A Cornish Geek’s history of blogging

Self-Care Sunday #16

One of my highlights of the week is taking Jenson to his swimming lesson. Of course, it helps when we have time to stop for coffee and cake with our friends after, but I actually really love just being in the water with him. He's so happy and fearless, it's great to see, and it's… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #16
