My Blog Goals of 2015

I only started my blog in January and I really had no clue what I was getting into. Yes I've dabbled in some blogs in the past, but I never pushed them on social media much, they were just like an online diary where I could mix my love of ramblings and my love of techy things (okay, so not ultra techy but playing around with all the layouts on blogger counts right...??) Here's the blogging goals I set myself when I started....

Relax at Ener-chi

In an ideal world December means listening to Michael Bublé while beautifully wrapping presents and getting ready to celebrate this joyous holiday... Unfortunately there is usually a bit more stress involved, not to mention copious amounts of cellotape getting stuck to the side of the table in the process. Ener-chi take a different approach as they look to make this year as stress-free as possible for their clients. Watch the Christmas video that Explore with Ed and I produced for them...

If you haven't noticed already, Christmas is creeping up on us! And if there's one thing I love doing over Christmas (other than drinking mulled wine) it's getting into my Christmas onesie and watching a feel good Christmas movie! Here's my top 10:

Lush Summer Collection 2015

I was invited to Lush in Cardiff last night to celebrate the launch of some new products and to find out why they are telling us to 'get naked this summer'. Although I'm not strictly a beauty blogger, I do love a good pamper session, and the idea of getting to take photos inside such a vibrant and pretty shop really got me excited!

The Annual Penarth Summer Festival!

Started back in 1965, today was the 50th Penarth Summer Festival! I've never been before so I decided to check it out and take a few snaps. Here's my mini photo gallery....

My Skydive Experience!

First of all let me just say a massive thank you to everyone who supported me in this and helped raise the money! I raised over £420 in total, which I think is pretty impressive as I didn't think I'd raise more than a £5er! haha. I've got my hands on the video and I'm excited about sharing this experience with you!

My First Printed Review (The CDF)

So as most of you know, especially those who are avid readers of my blog (you guys rock!) I write reviews. Mainly food reviews about local places in Cardiff and it's surrounding areas, however, I also do the odd adventure and event review.

My Cookie Dough (Cardiff)

You can't deny the delicious taste of Reece's Pieces nor the mouthwatering combination of banana and toffee, let alone when they are on a bed of warm cookie dough with ice cream on top... Mmmm... We visited My Cookie Dough to do some first hand investigating of this new(ish) pop up shop in Cardiff (it was totally for research purposes only...)

My Top Tips for Road Trips!

If you've read any of my other posts then you will know that I like to travel places and do lots of exploring. However, getting to some of those places with public transport can be a bit of a nightmare, so if you're like me and usually go by car, this post is for you!

Penarth Light Display - Celebrating 150 Years!

Although I'm originally from the lovely English county of Worcestershire, I have lived in South Wales since attending university here in 2010. I have really grown to love Wales, it has so much to offer and such a variety of scenery. I particularly love the way that they celebrate and embrace the history, which is exactly what happened on Wednesday 4th March in Penarth...

The Washington (Penarth)

This review is of a beautiful cafe located in the heart of Penarth. The Washington. If you live local to the area then you've probably seen this place plenty of times as it's a pretty eye catching building. It has been on my 'to go' list for a good while now!

Cosmeston Lake Country Park (South Wales)

Cosmeston Lake Country Park is somewhere I've been past and heard of, but never explored properly, and so given that it was also recommend to me recently, I thought it would be nice to pay it a visit. The site has been open for 37 years, and gained 'local nature reserve' status in May 2013. Click HERE for directions to this fantastic spot.

Penarth Cliff Walk (South Wales)

I recently did the Caerphilly mountain walk, that featured amazing views overlooking Caerphilly castle and the opposing mountains. This walk is a complete contrast, yes it's high up, but the views are of the channel, facing towards Bristol, and with Penarth Pier in the distance.

Maple Syrup, Bacon, & Poached Egg Bagel

I discovered this recipe a few years ago in a brunch cookbook, and ever since I have been in love with it! It's easy, fairly quick to do and so yummy! It's perfect as a special occasion breakfast/brunch, and with Valentine's day approaching, I thought I would give it a share!
If you end up making this then please comment and let me know how you got on!

Beach Day Trip to Barry Island!

It's February - Let's go ahead and give ourselves a pat on the back for surviving January! It's always a tough month, with New Years Resolutions haunting us and winter still lingering, not forgetting the daily dread of going back to work while still feeling the affects of Christmas... But then comes along February, the gateway to Spring, the reassurance that we can start fresh and still achieve all the things we had hoped for by the end of the year. The forgiving month. February. One reason why I wanted to start a blog was to experience new places, appreciate old places and combine my passion with my lifestyle. That's exactly what I did yesterday

The Magic Wrap (Cardiff Bay)

I've got to admit, I'm no wrap fanatic, but I am partial to a good wrap every so often. So, while I was tweeting away, a good friend of mine Jamie (Check out Explore With Ed here) re-tweeted Magic Wrap's tweet which caught my attention. What is a 'Magic Wrap'?? I was so curious that I stopped what I was doing and marched to the Bay, camera in hand while fighting against the strong winds. We were up against the elements but no-one was going to take this 'Magic Wrap' away from me.

The Pilot (Penarth)

With so many options of restaurants, cafes and fast food conveniences, it can be hard deciding where to get some grub! Which is why I keep a list of anywhere that gets recommend. Yesterday I got the chance to give The Pilot a visit and see what they had to offer!
