Off duty escape.....
Long beach walks, picnics, and fresh delicious local food, are just what my VHM (very handsome man) and I need right now.A long weekend away to relax and recharge, and hopefully soak up a few rays of Cornish sunshine. There is something so wonderfully soothing about the air in Cornwall, that as soon as I arrive I feel all the stresses melting away. Packing is kept to a bare minimum, come rain (very possible) or shine I am wearing shorts, as this mini break is very low key. However, just a few of my favorite pamper products may creep into the holdall.
I have worn Birkenstocks for many years. If you haven't tried them yet, then you really should. Besides being this summer's 'fashion favourite' footwear, they are also undeniably comfortable.
