Travel: A Summer Holiday in Cornwall

Cornwall is one of those places that I've always wanted to visit and despite the stunning scenery I can't pretend that the long car journey hasn't put me off previously. However, a couple of weeks ago I embarked on a 6 + hour journey to Cornwall with my lovely boyfriend and his family (at this point I should probably mention that I didn't do any driving and should say thank you to my lovely boyfriend for doing all the driving :))

After travelling through the early hours of Saturday morning we arrived in Cornwall around 10am. We weren't able to check in to our Air BnB until late afternoon so we stopped at a lovely harbour town called Fowey for breakfast and a wander, before heading to Falmouth for a wander around (and a very tasty Cornish pasty!). After a long day of travelling it was finally time for us to make our way towards St Just to check into our Air BnB (a lovely old farmhouse based on the outskirts of the town with a real fire and no phone signal.. bliss!)
Pedn Vounder beach
On Sunday we visited Pedn Vounder beach which was absolutely beautiful, but a little bit tricky to reach. As I like to be honest in my blog I'll admit that I slipped on the coastal path.. twice. I definitely wasn't appropriately dressed for that hike! If you're planning on visiting Pedn Vounder I'd definitely recommend wearing hiking boots/shoes or at best trainers.

Review: GlassesShop.Com Prescription Glasses*

I first started wearing prescription glasses back in my mid-teens and I'm now more reliant on them than ever, so it's nice to have a couple of pairs which I can alternate between to prevent me getting fed up of wearing the same pair over and over. As I'm sure my fellow prescription glasses wearers will be aware prescription glasses can be very expensive! So when GlassesShop.com got in touch and offered to send me a pair of their affordable prescription glasses to review I was intruiged.

GlassesShop.Com is an online shop which offers a vast range of prescription eyeglasses, glasses frames and prescription sunglasses at affordable prices. With so much choice it took me a while to chose my frames. In the end I decided to go with the GrandPrairie Wayfarer Purple/Pink glasses* (RRP $25.95).

Review: LUSH Metamorphosis Bath Bomb

Last month I popped into LUSH for the first time in a very quite a long time. During my visit I purchased a product I'd never tried before, the Metamorphosis bath bomb.
LUSH Metamorphosis Bath Bomb
The main ingredients in Metamorphosis are Black Pepper Oil,Cinamon Leaf Oil and Myrrh which give the bath bomb a lovely warm scent, which I can't compare to any other LUSH products I've tried. Personally I found that the scent lingered on my skin for quite a while after using the bath bomb, which I really liked.

Travel: A City Break in Edinburgh

Towards the end of last week I headed up to Edinburgh for a short break with my boyfriend. Edinburgh is a city I've wanted to visit for a while now and we managed to arrange a last minute trip (we even managed to bag cheap train tickets.. yay!)

Our train pulled into Edinburgh around lunchtime. After going straight to our AirBnB apartment to drop off our heavy bags (a huge thank you to our host who kindly allowed us to check in early) we headed out for an afternoon of exploring the city.


We spent the first part of our afternoon wandering around the Old Town and the famous Royal Mile, absorbing the lively atmosphere and admiring the architecture. I don't know about you, but I love looking at pretty buildings! I just had to take a picture of the colourful buildings on Victoria Street which are said to have been the inspiration behind Diagon Alley.
