What to wear at Gylly Beach

Standard

Now it’s that time of year, where students flock to the infamous beach hotspots of Cornwall and enjoy their well-deserved English summer. But before heading to all the local bbqs and surfer sessions, you need to find that perfect two-piece to show your beach bod off. What better way than to enjoy those gorgeous sunsets over the sea with swimwear to match?

Topshop have some great additions this year, bringing us the popular aztec print.

£26.00                                                                                                                                        £28.00

If  fuller swim suits are more your style try Topshop’s bathing suit range. There’s some cute little numbers which are very Marilyn Monroe inspired, perfect for that beach beauty.

£32.00                                                                                                                                    £32.00

The floral print is fabulous for Falmouths hot spot ‘Gylly Beach’. Team this up with some sandals and sarong and off you go, you’re ready for summer!

International Women’s Day

Standard

International women’s day was celebrated in style last Thursday in the guildhall building, Plymouth. Plymouth City Council and its partners organized the event gathering hundreds of women to raise awareness of the victorious day.

Plymouth chose to go with the theme of education to encourage ladies around the world how to unlock their own potential.

Many business outlets joined the event including the Royal Navy, Wild and Plymouth University.

Bev Smerdon, development officer for the Plymouth Centre of faiths and culture diversity said “I think its raised people’s awareness of the wider range of options for women across the city. It’s done its best by bringing the whole range of different perspectives.”

Visitors had the chance to listen to inspiring talks run by the Military wives choir, entrepreneur Bev Hurley, Tania West (Wild) and Professor Wendy Purcell. Craft shops and workshops were held throughout the morning and late afternoon.

Natalie Crinkett of Saltash said, “I travel every year to this event. I think it’s always a success, always encouraging young girls. My daughter came with me this year and she’s really opened her eyes at the possibilities and opportunities out there for herself and her own future.”

 

My pick of the week

Standard

I always see links to Fearne Cotton’s range on very.co.uk and after looking over the site I found this by Love label. I’ve never heard of them before but I’ve found some fab pieces.

Price – £45.00
Definitely worth it to have that bit something different. Looks great with the white trousers that the model’s wearing. The japanese inspired piece would look great dressed up or down, making it very versatile.

Apologies and update on Paris

Standard

Hey, I’m so sorry for the lack of posts in last two weeks or so, I guess I have a lot to catch up on. First things first I’m working on my portfolio for uni at the moment, that’s taking majority of my time up. Secondly I have gained my first piece of paid work for Cornwall Today, well chuffed if it all goes to plan. And thirdly I do need to update you of my time in Paris last month, long overdue!

Trying to work out the metro system was absolute hell and also not being able to speak french! Sadly my GCSE level french failed me. You know that scene in Sex and the City, when Carrie first see’s the Eiffel Tower and she lets a cry, I was like that except I didn’t let a cry. The popular monument was breathtaking, bigger than I had imagined! The view was absolutely amazing, I’m not usually one scared of heights but on the way up in the lift I did feel slightly weird. I would recommend everyone experiences it and the price isn’t too bad for six euros!  Had to take this shot. The architecture of the city is some of the best I’ve seen. Each building is so beautiful, It makes me think of Chanel and old fashioned  Paris.

You can’t come to Paris without experiencing a Chocolat Chaud…

Paris by night.

I really like this picture, I was struggling though to take it in the cold weather, my hands were shaking that’s why the picture is slightly blurry.

I had a fabulous trip to Paris on the eurostar. I would recommend anyone using it as it only takes two and a half hours to get there from London St pancreas. The price of the tickets depends on the time of the year, mine was only sixty pounds return but I think that’s because of going in Feb. Keep a look out for cheap deals on the eurostar website, you’re bound to come across something cheap. My next stop on the map is Milan in May with my mum to pre – celebrate my graduation.
