Outfit Post: Orla Kiely at Tintagel Castle, Cornwall

Clifftop View Cornwall

If you’ve been following along on Instagram Stories, you will know that last weekend we hopped on a train to Bristol and then hired a car to drive into the beauty of Cornwall. I mean just look at that breathtaking view! The 11 hour journey was well worth it. This was day two at the English Heritage ruins of Tintagel Castle – over a hundred steps above ground level. Sitting on the edge of the world was worth every single one.

I bought this blouse from the Orla Kiely sample sale in London a few years ago. They seemed to be doing them quite regularly once upon a time, but I haven’t seen it be mentioned for quite a while recently. I bought this top, a cute tan shoulder bag and a beautiful patterned dress for rock bottom prices – all brand new and in perfect condition. It is silk, though, so I’m always terrified I’m going to ruin it every time I wear it. I am not dainty!!

My jewellery is from Black Willow Jewelry, both were really special gifts from Mummy Oneten and Stu as they’re quite pricey (completely worth it, of course, as they’re handmade!). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve panicked when I lose that ring for even 5 minutes, I think it’s my most favourite item I own and I wear it every day. Those special pieces can really change the way you feel, can’t they? Sometimes when life is sucking, all I have to do is look down at the sparkly, mystic quartz on my finger and feel loved. I absolutely adore how the colours match the sea.

I’m definitely a water baby – I love to swim, even though I’m not very good at it, and something about being in the sea air just makes me feel so happy and peaceful. I also had a super strong coffee before we attempted all those stairs up to Tintagel Castle (as you may be able to tell from the photo below!) and hanging out with my bestest pals without a care in the world – yep, this was a really, really good day.

Things To Do in Yorkshire + Free Yorkshire Water Adventure Pack

Duck feeding in Yorkshire

When I was a little girl with curly blonde locks (I know, it’s hard to believe!) my ultimate favourite thing was feeding the ducks. There’s a home video of me somewhere dragging a doll around in the shadow of my big brother shouting, “go see ducks Danny!”. Even at just 29 I remember the days as a kid having picnics in Fairburn Ings with my Grandparents and playing out in the village until my tea was ready. Don’t get me wrong, I love video games, binge watching TV shows and making new friends on the internet, but I feel like kids these days are really missing out on the simple outdoors.

Things To Do in Yorkshire

Yorkshire Water got in touch with me the other day and asked what I thought of their free adventure packs to encourage kids and teenagers to spend more time outdoors. They’re free to download with a range of outdoor games like cloud hunting and duck feeding… things I still love to do now! It’s really got me thinking about how beautiful Yorkshire is and how much I want to get out and see more of the gorgeous countryside. So here are my top 5 things to do in Yorkshire, don’t forget to head over to Yorkshire Water to download your adventure pack to take along too, even if you’re just a big kid like me!

The Brown Cow Pub, Bingley

The Brown Cow, Bingley

// Head out for a long walk, pack your camera and finish up at the pub for a hearty lunch. Go on, treat yourself to a pudding for all those miles! I recommend exploring around Bingley, which is easily accessible by train, and having a lovely lunch at the Brown Cow.

// You’ve got to hang out with the birds at Lotherton Hall, they have some of the kookiest looking dudes, including flamingos!!

// Enjoy fish & chips on the beach in Scarborough – we even went in January and had an amazing time eating ice cream and wandering along the beach!

// Head out for a day in Ripon, exploring the cathedral and hanging out on the banks of the river having a picnic. This was one of our absolute favourite places as kids, eating turkey sandwiches and paddling in the water – real bonding time for me and my big bro!

// Set up a tent in your own back garden!! Lay on the grass picking animals out of the clouds and then huddle up with blankets and listen to the world outside your tent. The simple things never get old.
