firstly, a big thank you to westons for inviting us along for a tour! a couple of fridays ago i, and a small group of bloggers were invited along to westons cider mill for a tour of the inner workings and the orchards, as well as some cider tasting. it being harvest time of year, there was of course plenty of colour outside and it was especially nice walking through the organic apple orchards taking photos.
it was fascinating to see and be told about the process of cider and perry making. as you’re shown around the grounds you get to see pretty much every part of it. read this post

i want to write about this whilst it’s fresh in my mind, though i can’t imagine i’ll be forgetting about it in any near future.
recently i won a competition, and part of the prize was for me and a friend to make our own bespoke perfumes at floris, on ebury street (the flagship store is on jermyn street). making my very own perfume has been a dream of mine for a very long time, and one i thought would never actually be realised.
i invited sade of in my sunday best along with me as i sensed it was something she’d really enjoy (also because she’s wonderful) too.
we were invited down into the basement level, in a room filled with shelves of golden floris display boxes, perfume ingredients, petals in vases and greenery along the windowsill. read this post

last sunday i went on an ‘urban photowalk’ arranged by cardiff igers. i’d not been to one before (from these people, i’ve done a couple other photowalks – including the bristol photowalk i was part of!) so was a little bit nervous to begin with! it was a super sunny day which was ideal and made it easy to wonder around slowly. read this post

a couple of weeks ago i decided to go to the conservatory in roath park, as i’d somehow not been in there before. i’ve been missing out all these years living in cardiff! despite having to walk around barefoot due to my shoe strap breaking, it was absolutely worth it. also i got myself some chocolate cake on the way home. win/win. read this post
