Cornwall is one of our happy places. What we love about Cornwall is how relaxed it is, and the ridiculous foodie scene. We’ve eaten pizza on the beach cooked by some local boys who just setup their stone baked pizzeria in the open air, at what looked like a quaint run down inn but turned out to be an absolute gem of a seafood restaurant, and at a fancy beachside restaurant (which we were still in damp beaches clothes and wet salty hair, and it was 100% acceptable.) Literally every meal was delicious. Cornish residents take their food very seriously, and we love to eat it. So other than eating and never getting dressed up, or having completely dry hair we love to surf, swim and body board in the sea (in full wetsuits). Going on costal hikes is another love, the wind and wide open views of the coast and bays are so uplifting. Barbecues on the beach with lots of friends and family. Some our favourite places in the North East of Cornwall are, Polzeath, Padstow, Mawgan Porth and Port Isaac, there are still so many places we want to visit.

The cardigans we are wearing were knitted by our extremely talented Nan, we say what we wants and she creates knitting patterns from memory. Our sandals are what we often refer to as a Jesus sandal, if its natural un treated leather, has a cross over pattern then it makes it a Jesus sandal. What we are wearing is pretty much our Cornwall beach uniform, distressed denim, stripes and our knitted by nan cardigans.

Crete, Greece

Girls holiday round 2… Our mother turned 50 and wanted to go away with all of the girls (her Mum, sisters and us) in our family.

We went away at the beginning of May and had so many giggles that we already planning the next girls trip. IMG_7170IMG_2715IMG_2729IMG_7392IMG_2763 (1)IMG_1961IMG_7260IMG_2897IMG_2891^^ Everyone^^

Natasha (and mother) had been to Bruges before and wanted Charlotte and Camilla to see the beautiful town, cobbled streets and funky buildings. We took a carriage ride around the town to learn a little more about the history, which we would definitely recommend. We indulged in the many chocolate shops Bruges has to offer- they truly are world class chocolates and ate Belgium waffles (because you can’t go to Belgium without having a waffle!!)

NATASHA | VISITING TORONTO

We visited Toronto since it was so close to Niagara Falls- it felt like quite a small city. My favourite parts were the St.Lawrence Market which is voted the best food market in the world, I loved walking round- I could have bought something from every vendor. I also loved the distillery district, from the cobbled streets to the quaint shops, I could have spent all day there. It was a bit chilly so we indulged and had Soma hot chocolates.

We also tried out airbnb for the first time… we were a bit apprehensive at first (meeting a stranger and staying in their house/apartment) but we loved the view from the apartment, chatting to a ‘local’ on the best places to eat and visit and that we saved some money!

CAMILLA | IN OVERSIZED JACKET

tartan scarflow pony-tail hairstyle oversized jacketdenim shirt
michael kors gold watch
wearing: H&M denim shirt (now on sale), Aquascutum jacket (old, but similar here), Zara scarf (old, but I like this one), Topshop jeans (very similar here), Russell and Bromley loafers, Michael Kors watch (I also like this one)

Confession: This jacket is actually Charlotte’s husbands, he left it at our mum’s house after easter weekend spent back in Suffolk. When I found it, I got a little bit too excited and tried it on straight away. At first I felt like a drown rat, however rolling up the sleeves made all the difference and I decided I had to wear it. I have always loved an oversized jacket, jumper or top.
