I can’t believe today actually marks the 9th of October, meaning that crisp leaves, pumpkin spiced lattes and all things Autumnal are now officially back.

Now, don’t get me wrong I love Autumn, Halloween and Christmas as much as the next blogger. But is it me or does it feel like one blink from your sun lounger and your cocktail is replaced with a Starbucks and that sassy little swimsuit is suddenly packed away for another year and out come those knee-high boots and scarfs?

With my holiday to Mallorca just around the corner, I am very excited about touching down and sipping on Piña Coladas by the poolside at our very own private villa. However, despite my experience working as cabin crew in previous years, I still managed to pack everything, all but the kitchen sink.

So after watching various video on YouTube by Ingrid Nilsen I discovered the art to packing less was to purchase some magical packing cubes to help utilise the space in my suitcase. Of course, this method is only effective if you have a decent case to begin with, which is why I have also got the Tripp suitcase to go in the cabin.

 

Packing Essentials

Tripp Champagne Lite Cabin Case £52.00

Pink Cherry Packing cubes (Set of 6) £7.99

Travel Wallet (Similar here) Stradivarius £12.99

P.S Don’t forget your Passport!

 

If you would like to see a video on my channel on how I pack my case, then just leave a comment below. Happy Packing 🙂

I absolutely love reading these posts, so I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite fashion and beauty purchases from May.

First up is this stunning floral wrap dress from Primark for £13 which caught my eye because of its gorgeous ruffles and Latin inspired style. Initially I was going to wear this to the Maison de Choup launch but decided to opt for jeans and a top combo due to the poor weather that was forecast for my journey up to London. However, I will definitely be wearing this in Mallorca later this year with a pair of black strappy heels.

Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

Next up is a few impulse beauty purchases. After being pampered by the lovely ladies at my local Benefit Brow Bar and Urban Decay prior to my trip up to London. I decided to invest in the following products.

Urban Decay Total Pervision duo set £22

Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray £23.50

Benefit Gimme Brow £20

The great thing is I was also given a free makeover by Urban Decay after purchasing two products, this was particularly enjoyable as I was able to attend the MDC launch looking lovely and glam thanks to the lovely Louise.

Last but not least is this stunning tribal inspired print bikini from Accessorize. I really love bright colours and the pink tassels add just the right amount of sass to complete my beach look. I will be pairing this with a big floppy straw hat and a cheeky pina colada.

These are just a small selection of my latest favourites. If you would like to see another post like this then please do leave a comment. I hope you are all having a lovely relaxing Bank Holiday.

Number 12 – The perfect retreat.

Niver Dewdhek or number 12 as it is more commonly known as in English is the perfect retreat if you are looking for a base that provides incredible views of the sea, whilst being situated in a local Cornish village. This delightful cottage can sleep up to 6 people and offers both modern and traditional features that make you feel right at home. The cottage has three floors and caters for your every need from a dishwasher, to the most basic of appliances. On colder evenings you can enjoy a glass of red by the fire or on sunnier days you can walk round the corner to the local harbour and explore what the local village of Mousehole has to offer.

The perfect base for you in Mousehole.

If you are looking for somewhere special to eat then I highly recommend the local 2 Fore Street Restaurant that offers both steak, incredible desserts and fresh fish dishes. The village of Mousehole also provides a post office, a lovely deli/coffee shop with produce from the local area or perhaps you would enjoy looking around my favourite gift shop ‘ The Mousehole’.

If you are need of fresh veg then a 2 mile walk to Newlyn is a great way to stock up on essentials as it offers a lovely relaxing stroll past the sea and you can see right across the bay. If you wish to sample of the local fish specialities then ‘The Mackeral Sky seafood bar’ in Newlyn also serves tapas style dishes where you can enjoy as much or as little as you want.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll down to Newlyn.

Unlike most cottages,  Number 12 also provides plenty of games such as Scrabble or Trival Pursuit and a wide range of dvd’s to ensure that everyone is entertained on rainier days or perhaps you could take a trip to the Eden project which is a great day out for cooler days. I really can’t recommend this place highly enough, the cosy spacious bedrooms ensure a peaceful night’s sleep, whilst the kitchen provides the perfect setting for a family meal.

For more information on this wonderful gem of a cottage then simply click on the link below where you can also find lots of lovely pictures too. Looking for a larger property? Don’t worry Aspect Holidays has plenty of wonderful properties across Cornwall to choose from.

After a lovely relaxing and action – packed week in Cornwall with Al and his family, I thought I would share with you all, some of the best things to see, do and eat next time you are in the area. If you would like any further information on each place then all you have to do is either click on the picture or relevant link – Enjoy!

Exploring the Mediterranean biome.

2 Fore Street

At the top of my list has to be this lovely little restaurant situated in Mousehole. Whilst, the waiting times were rather long, the food was defiantly worth waiting for. Not only was the ambience incredibly relaxing , it also provided the perfect laid back vibe for a 30th Birthday celebratory meal during our stay. Of Course, the high standard of the food and the incredible flavours did entice me and may have resulted in me sampling a few more dishes less than 24 hours later.

Eden Project

After visiting the tropical rainforests of eden just over two-year’s ago, I was incredibly excited to discover that my favourite attraction in Cornwall had also extended their sky walkway and despite being disappointed with the rainforest lookout being closed due to high levels of humidity, the wobbly bridge and steam clouds more than made up for this. I thoroughly enjoyed my last day in Cornwall at this stunning place and the pasta at their Med Terrace restaurant in the mediterranean biome was both reasonable in price and delicious. Of course, no trip to eden is complete without a Roskilly’s ice cream and a visit to the gift shop.

Minack Theatre

After walking down to the gorgeous beach of Porthcurno and sampling a Cornish cream tea, I thought my day couldn’t get any better. But once I had reached the top, the views were absolutely breathtaking and the theatre visit was an educational experience that was surprisingly very enjoyable. This is defiantly a place worth exploring for the views alone and at £5 per adult this is a great day out if you are on a tight budget.

St Michael’s Mount

The walk along the causeway was an experience in itself and once I Stepped onto St Michael’s mount it was as though I had been transported through time, I was greeted with cobbled lined streets, stunning gardens filled with an abundance of flowers, trees and plants and a 17th Century castle. Whilst, the prices to explore the castle are a very respectable £9.50 per adult, it is worth considering signing up to the national trust membership if you plan on visiting more of their attractions. Me and Al decided to sign up for as little as £9 a month for both of us and it meant that we can visit over 500 of the national trust sites as many times as we want throughout the year at no extra cost. It also includes free parking, a handbook to help us plan our trips as well as many other exclusive offers.

St Ives

This picturesque fishing village and seaside town is the perfect place to enjoy a pint or simply explore the independent boutiques and shops. The St Ives Bay line also offers a scenic route from as little as £4 return during off – peak times.

A train ride like no other.

Cornwall has always been a favourite place of mine since I was a child. However, Cornwall has not only captured my heart but it has also left me with lasting memories that are sure to stay with me in many years to come. Have you been to Cornwall? I would love to hear any recommendations that you may have, as me and Al are planning another visit later this year as we can’t wait to go back!
