When in Cornwall, do as the Cornish do.

FAUX FUR CAPE FROM THE BBMEETUP | TWEED COAT FROM H&M
BOOTS FROM TOPSHOP | MY BATTERED OLD SATCHEL

It's always nice to come back to Cornwall for a few days to refresh myself, especially after a hectic weekend in London. I never truly appreciated the lazy pace of life until I left it behind, but now that I live in the city I love visiting my family. The sea air is therapeutic!

Yesterday my mum and I headed to Falmouth to do a little Christmas shopping. As is always the way when we shop together, the first stop was Costa, where we indulged in seasonal lattes and shared a brie and cranberry panini. They also had these adorable little gingerbread biscuits on the counter, and being the sucker for nicely decorated confectionery that I am, I couldn't not buy a packet.

We ended up buying more Christmas decorations than anything else. I got a little excited whilst we were in a crafts corner and ended up buying a bunch of glitter and glue in the (arguably naive) hope of knocking together a few DIY pieces - we'll just have to see how that one works out!

I'm back up to Bath tonight, and tomorrow I'm London bound for the day for the Dahlia Christmas event. Hopefully I'll be meeting some new people and catching up with some familiar faces. Being that it's Dahlia, no doubt I'll also be falling in love with an array of gorgeous dresses whilst I'm at it...

  1. Great pics dear, it's always nice coming back to hometown.
    I would love to try those gingerbread biscuits, so cute... and also love the 6th pic, that contrast between almost everything in b&w and the coloured cabins and that posing seagull... great composition.

    Cat kisses.

  6. Wow I'm so envious of all the fabulous places you've been/you're going to! I've never been to Cornwall & it looks just beautiful, exactly the type of place I love visiting.
    I could almost taste your costa experience when reading this post! I tried the gingerbread late from there at the weekend but I had it with skimmed milk and no cream.. It was somewhat lacking in flavour! Next stop is definitely the creme brulee one and I'm going to allow all the naughty ingredients in it too to get the best from it! :D
    Have a great week chick, as always its a joy to read your posts xx

  11. You have gorgeous photos in your blog and you are so beautiful...I was wondering about what camera you use (I saw you use a four-year old one, but you didn't mention the make and model).
