It has been a while since I shared photos from Cornwall since we got back from Berlin last month we have been super busy with work and the weather hasn’t been too great. On those few elusive sunny days we tried to make the most of them and get outside, so here are a few photos from this last month. Enjoy x

We headed to Plymouth for the day and explored down at Royal William Yard, which is stunning and a lovely place to have lunch/dinner. We landed luckily on a warm day and it was nice to be by the water and enjoy the architecture and history of this old naval dockyard. There are quite a few restaurants, cafes and bars which have outside seating to enjoy the sun and surroundings. It was a 15-minute walk from the centre and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

The walk was pleasant and I couldn’t help but take photos of all the beautiful, brightly coloured houses on the way. I really want to live in a mint green house, how cute would that be.

So a couple of weeks ago we made the long drive to Scotland from Cornwall, we did manage to stop off for a few days in one of our favourite cities. Manchester holds a special place in our hearts, we lived there for 5 years whilst my husband was at University and we had so many wonderful, happy times there. Whenever possible we like to visit and catch up with friends that still live there.

We are never usually so lucky with the weather but we managed to get four sunny days in a row, so we could really enjoy the city. Another reason for stopping off in Manchester was the fact that one of our favourite bands, Puscifer were playing at the Bridgewater Hall. Puscifer is a band you my not of heard of but it is fronted by the lead singer of Tool (another awesome band) & they put on a fantastic live show. It was the bands first European Tour, so we were so excited to finally see them live & they did not disappoint.

I took full advantage of the great shops, in Cornwall we do lack good fashion & home shops – we don’t have a Zara, H&M, Urban Outfitters or even IKEA (cries). So I spend quite a bit on clothes, I just couldn’t resist. We also visited our favourite coffee shops TAKK, Foundation and Fig & Sparrow, Its nice to see the Northern Quarter flourishing although its such a far cry from how I remember it in early 2000, I just hope it doesn’t become too cool for school & all the character gets lost.

It was lovely to relax in the city before heading up to our final destination in Scotland – next weeks post will have lots of photos from our visit to my home town.
