Tea, Beer and Cider festival weekend!

Gyllyngdune Tea Festival

The Gyllyngdune Tea Festival is an event for all ages celebrating art, music, the gardens, fun and of course … tea! The festival celebrates the gardens’ historic links to the nation’s favourite beverage. There were arts and crafts stalls, tea tastings, tea talks, tea dances, music, food and tea based activities & trails for little visitors. It’s basically tea, more tea and everything tea-like.

Since opening as a public winter garden in 1911, Gyllyngdune Gardens has hosted thousands of tea dances over the decades and was even once owned by the son of the fournder of the Horniman Tea Company. My boyfriend and I attended a tea dance once but it turns out that dancing is far harder than it looks! I bought the cutest little craft pack to make my own little Christmas tree decoration and tasted some lovely lemon and ginger goodness 🙂

FIVE Degrees West Beer and Cider Festival

After the tea festival we carried on to the four-day beer and cider festival in Falmouth. There was an impressive 25 beers, 20 ciders (even a Heli-Berry crushed berries cider, which was gorgeous!), and some pulled pork barbecue burgers. There was live music, a Meet The Brewer talk and a magician.

Downloaded the new iPhone iOS 7?

What’s your thoughts? To be honest, I’m not worried about the bug that let’s anyone bypass the iPhone lock screen, privacy settings are automatically set to track your location or the ‘dangerously gentle’ alarm clock that quite honestly 


make my boyfriend and I oversleep for work this morning (we had a back-up though!).

The most important piece of news was on the front page of Google..
