Winter Pinspiration

Yep, I admit it, I'm a Pinterest addict. So what better way to put this addiction to good use than by sharing some pretty pictures with you lovely readers! Introducing my new 'Pinspiration' series! Every week (or so I'll try) I'll post a series of my favourite pins following a certain theme, or just what I'm liking that week. This week's theme: winter! Because it's so horrible and rainy and cold outside we might as well appreciate some of the good things about winter!

Picnic, Falmouth

Down in Falmouth we are absolutely spoilt for choice when it comes to good cafes and I'm making it my goal to visit each and every one of them (so far I'm doing a good job!). To take a well deserved break from university work, my flatmate and I decided to pop into Picnic for a warming drink and some yummy food.

Winter Beach Walks

I realised today that I hadn't been down to the beach this year, and okay, I've only been back at uni for less than 2 weeks, but living literally 5 minutes away from the beach makes this pretty unforgiveable. So on my way back from town I decided to take advantage of the rare bit of sun and had a little Winter wander and read on Gylly beach. Chilly but beautifully peaceful.

Wright's Garlic and Rosemary Focaccia

I love freshly baked bread, but for some reason I never make it myself. So to slowly re-introduce myself back into the bread making business (and because I was feeling lazy), I decided to test out a pre-made bread mix.

The January Blues. Almost everyone gets them. It's cold, wet, windy, the Christmas festivities are over, we're back to work... No wonder it's so easy to start feeling a bit down in the dumps. But don't worry, you can get yourself back up again! Here's my list of simple ways to help you beat the blues and put that smile back on your face!

Paris, Day Two

Day two of our little weekend away in Paris (you can see day one here)! After being my typical non-morning self, we got up a bit later than originally planned and headed downstairs for a large and varied buffet for breakfast, before setting off out for our day of Paris adventures! First stop: the top of the Eiffel Tower!

Paris, Day One

A couple of months ago I began a series of blog posts called Travel Bucket List, and number one on that list: Paris. I've wanted to visit Paris for as long as I can remember. Everything about it is just beautiful: the architecture; the culture; the lights. So when I found out Mr R had spent months secretly planning to whisk me off to Paris for my 21st birthday it was like a dream come true!
