Throw back to being at the seaside last week. We had a lovely little wander around Charlestown in the balmy mild weather! Better than today’s freezing temperatures anyway!
Moody Cornish skies in Polruan! We’ve had a lovely week, January holidays are going to become a thing in our house. Sad to be going home but will be nice to get into a routine. ⠀ ⠀ We’ve been back from KL just over a month now and it’s time to crack on with working, the business and getting back to normal.
Beautiful winter sunsets this week. I’ve been missing our apartment in KL with the best sunsets but these wintery skies are just the ticket!
Beautiful days in January. Wintery walks on cliffs, reading books by the fire and pints of ale in the pub. I highly recommend January breaks!
Absolutely perfect day for a wintery walk!
Warm comforting foods are essential at the moment! It’s freezing. Stay in, stay warm and make mac and cheese! ⠀ ⠀ Recipe on the blog today. Use up your Christmas cheese leftovers - blue cheese take mac and cheese from great to epic! Link in bio.
I made the office into a space I want to work in. Now I just need some work and to stop procrastinating! ⠀
Wow, what a book. A fantastic read, one that, I think will stay with me for sometime. The complex characters and intertwined nature of them blew me away. I cried and smiled many times whilst reading this. I loved it! ⠀ ⠀ I wish I hadn’t read it so I could read it all over again.
Definitely need one of these today! Too much 🧀 and 🍷 last night. ⠀ ⠀ Throwback to my favourite coffee shop in KL, a place with so many amazing plants and gorgeous things I wanted to move in. ⠀ ⠀
I wrote a post last year, over on the blog, about New Year, new me and how it’s all crap! ⠀ ⠀ It’s ok to want to better yourself and in fact aim to get healthy but please don’t listen to the rhetoric that you are a bad person for eating too much and now must fast through January or punish yourself in order to loose the Christmas pounds.⠀ ⠀ My resolutions will not be about losing weight or cutting out food groups. Instead I am thinking about my intentions for a business venture and general wellness. ⠀ ⠀ To read the post, pop over to the bio section 👆🏻⠀ ⠀ #newyearsameme #newyearsamemenewgoals
Wow 2018 you have been amazing! So many incredible experiences. Japan, Cambodia, Gili, Borneo, Thailand and amazing spots in Malaysia. ⠀ ⠀ So many people met, things done and memories made. 2019 you have some big shoes to fill.
Looking back on 2018 with some of the best places I’ve been lucky enough to visit. ⠀ ⠀ Above is the beautiful Gili Meno. Spent a lovely day here with friends and fell in love with the Gili islands all over again. ⠀ ⠀ 2018 was fabulous, I feel very lucky to have traveled to so many places!
It’s Christmas Eve, what’s not done, is not done. It’s time to light some candles and the fire and just enjoy time with your friends and family. ⠀ ⠀ None of us will be having the perfect Christmas, it doesn’t exist. Behind every perfect Instagram Christmas pic is the same family squabbles or overcooked sprouts. ⠀ ⠀ I’m going to try enjoy it for what it is. Have a wonderful Christmas all 😘
For last minute Christmas wrapping, swipe left. There’s a video showing how easy it is to wrap a present Japanese style. ⠀ ⠀ Called Furoshiki, it’s used to wrap gifts, clothes and bento boxes and is super easy.
I love it when you check in to a hotel that has @cowshed products for you to use! ⠀ The first thing I do is run a bath 🛀🏻
Christmas cake making over in the blog. It’s not too late to make it - I made mine yesterday and it will be moist, doesn’t need feeding and is super easy. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ You basically weight it out and mix - easy! ⠀ ⠀ The secret to this moist cake is the drizzle technique and the soaking of fruit. Go have a look
York is one of my favourite places. I worked here for a few years in my early twenties and ever since I’ve loved going back every Christmas to meet up with family. The last few days have been wonderful. Crisp mornings with blue skies = perfection to me! Very happy to be home and loving this cold weather, for now!
Taking some inspiration from Japan - wrapping our gifts in reusable cloth Furoshiki style! ⠀ ⠀ This hamper of goodies is for my Aunt and Uncle. Using a scarf instead of paper not only gives another gift but means less unrecyclable wrapping paper. ⠀ ⠀ Note - I will still use wrapping paper, as it’s lovely and I have LOADS left over. As with everything I feel it’s about making small changes where you can. ⠀
