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.
