I don't have any reasons, I've left them all behind.

Over the weekend, one of my friends from home, Jo (who is currently living in London), came to visit for the weekend. It was so nice because I haven't seen him for a while and it was great catching up. We can chat for such a long time when we meet up, even if we haven't seen each other for ages, it still feels as though I saw him yesterday. When he arrived on Saturday, we went out for food and stayed up all night chatting about what has been happening in our lives and watching Kevin and Perry go large. Sunday consisted of playing crazy golf in Royal Victoria Park, eating lots of food and building a massive Jenga tower in the middle of Southgate in Bath, as well as filming a few intros to George's (Sarah at Salty Sea's boyfriend/from home) new YouTube channel that he's created, which you can check out here.

As Jo was heading over to see one of our other friends in Bristol, Sarah, George, myself and Mark (the boyf) decided on an adventure to the boating station which is just behind Sydney Gardens in Bath. We initially thought about renting a boat for an hour, but it was £7, which we didn't really want to spend, and thought a small picnic whilst adoring the landscape was nicer instead. There were a few boats that went past about every 20 mins or so too, which you can catch from the Weir, taking you ona  lovely tour of the riverline.

We also had a mini couples photoshoot as Sarah wanted some more photos to build up her portfolio, and finally got round to taking photos of Mark and I. We didn't get that many however, because it was so cold and I wanted to go home. The photos at the bottom of this post are Sarah's and see you can see more over on her blog.

We also came across a few friends that had actually been out boating along the river and spent a little while with them before heading round town,  for a few errands and then home.


I bought this lovely dress recently from Fat Face and it's adorable! I'd seen it online when searching for a new dress and fell in love with it instantly. I knew I had to have it. I really love their stuff as it's such good quality and the prints are always bright and colourful. I wanted this in particular though because of its shape, but also because of the lovely quirky print, and at £40, it's definitely worth it.

Have you found any lovely spots in the city?

Style Swap

Whilst taking photos for our latest Crown and Glory adventure, Sarah decided she would dress me in clothes from my wardrobe that I never wear, and they turned out to be the clothes that Sarah would choose to wear on a normal day. This became the beginning of our style swap. Hopefully Sarah will also do her blog post about her style swap so you can see what I picked out for her to wear.

I begrudgingly was made to wear this outfit, consisting of my step-dad's old denim shirt, my very old Miss Selfridge dress, nude tights and converse. And actually, by the time we got to where we were taking photos, I was actually pretty comfortable and eventually liked what I was wearing. 

What's in your wardrobe?

Life's a beach

I love the fact that on the beach at Praa Sands is a little bar/restaurant called the Sandbar, which gets crazy busy on sundays when they serve a carvery. It's such a lovely little beach, located at what feels like the end of the Earth. It does get a little busy though because of the emmets that stay in the surrounding holiday sites.

Although I don't visit it as much as I should, it's still an amazing beach. In the summer, it looks like it could be abroad somewhere because of the lovely bluey-green colours in the sea. Also, if you happen to visit the Minack Theatre, which is around the corner, you get a lovely view of the bay.


Over the summer, I spent a lot of time in St Ives, due to working, but I also spent a lot of time at this beach. It's right in the centre of the town (pretty much), and is also right next to the Tate Gallery if you fancy staying out of the sun for a little while. Also, if you head up to the island, you can also see the whole of St Ives, including this beach and possibly a bit of Hayle too.,_Falmouth.jpg

Another favourite of mine is Gylly beach. Pretty much every time I visit Falmouth, I go to Gylly Beach cafe and have a drink and some food, watching the surfers and sit in the sunshine. I also love it because it is right next to the town, so it's easily accessible.

Whenever I'm home and it's summer time, this is where you'll find me. It's the closest 'proper' beach to my town (unless you want to lay on pebbles all day!) and it has such an amazing view of St Michael's Mount. You can get to it by walking along the cycle path, all the way to Marazion village itself and even stop for a drink along the way at the Station House pub. This is my favourite beach and it's right down the road. You should definitely visit it if you haven't already.

Just wanted to say thanks to Anna at The Cornish Life for putting this link-up post together so I can get to know all of the other Cornish bloggers out there, and non-cornish too, of course.
