Surfing Perranporth, Cornwall



My family and I visited Cornwall back in July as we required a much needed getaway and to do some exploring with our four legged friends. We rented a dog friendly cottage in Lizard Point and basically spent each day exploring a different part of Cornwall, drinking copious amounts of pink champs and eating our body weight in ice-cream. 

This, right here, is the cottage of dreams. 

I'm A Feminist, But...



Damn I feel tired. Not only is it Monday, but I'm also harbouring a two day hangover, all down to the fact that I drink like I'm still 19. Just to clarify, I'm not... I'm a 27 year old woman that doesn't know her limits. "Want another beer bong Abby?" - "Um, DUH". 

Who loves my tee? I bought this furry little number from Mango via ASOS (link) and it's seriously everything. Wearing it brought me a lot of attention, mostly unwanted, but it got me thinking about the so called 'bad feminists' and in particular, confessions of a guilty feminist.

Crossroads



But look at the cool food related quotes? Pizza for President 100%.

SIDEBAR (before I've even started), Perfetto is an aesthetically cool Italian restaurant in Budapest which I visited back in May with the gals. The food was incredible. The service on the other hand - dog shit. Seriously, if you've got all night, then go for it because the Pizza is great but if you want to leave before 11:00pm, then don't even bother.

Back to me and my third world problems. Look at me trying to shift the spotlight.

10 From Instagram



Were you drawn in by my creative post title? Incredible literary stuff I know. 

Personally, Instagram is my favourtie social media tool. I'm far too lazy to keep up with Twitter trends and I only use Facebook to watch videos of puppies. Scrolling through a bunch of pretty pictures requires minimal effort and it's aesthetically pleasing to the eye... well, sometimes. I thought I would share ten of my latest posts and then if you want to follow me, that would be cool, or if not, that's cool too. You can find me at @abvsmith

For those that are wondering, the above picture was taken at Hurricane Festival in 2012 with none other than Band of Skulls. Kurt spotted them strolling through the festival and proceeded to chase them for a photograph. They were lovely and happily obliged. Emma Richardson is the raddest woman alive. 


Road Trip Games That'll Make Your Journey Awesome



It's not even spring yet and I'm already thinking about summer road trips, is anyone else with me? We are hoping to take the van to Wales in the next couple of months to stay at some camp sites and explore the national parks, particularly Brecon Beacons, recommendations are welcome! Although most of our road trips are entertained with playlists and podcasts; on occasion it's nice to kick things back old school and crack out the road trip games. Who else lived for this shit when they were younger? Damn.
 
Here are five of my favourite road trip games.
 
THAT'S WHERE YOU WERE BORN
 
The ultimate warring sibling game. The rules are simple - whenever you pass by a shack or rundown house or outbuilding, you shout out, 'that's where you were born' and then laugh hysterically. You then compete with each other to find the worst place to be born at. FAMILY FUN for all.
