Safe Seasonal Travels Walking (Infographic)

As a Cornishman, I thoroughly recommended the Cornish Coastpath trail in the infographic below! There’s the trail from Perranuthnoe to Porthleven, but from my experience of hiking around, you can make your route even better by extending it from Perranuthnoe. Later on, I’ll let you in on some personal preferences, when you head down towards Sennen or even Landsend. Although, as a general note, Cornish coastal paths are pretty muddy during the winter months, so be sure to be equipped…

Skullcandy Grind Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review

I’ve been on the lookout for some new headphones and I have finally found the perfect ones. The Skullcandy Grind Wireless on-ear bluetooth headphones from The Board Basement really are awesome. Bluetooth headphones have been around for a while and have always been a great idea but now with most of the latest smartphones ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack all together, they’re becoming a necessity. So what do I really like about the Skullcandy Grind Headphones? Firstly, they sit very…

Two Hoots Glamping Campsite Hampshire – Shepherds Hut Review

Over the half term holiday, we decided to make the most of our time and go for a mini-break in Hampshire.

Teva Arrowood Utility Mid Hiking Boot Review

Over a year ago, I got my first pair of Teva boots (which you can read about here) and absolutely loved them. They’re one of my most warn pair of shoes, this is because of how amazingly light and comfortable they are and because of their high quality design and manufacturing. A year later and after lots of wear, they still look close to new and I’m still wearing them all the time. Now I’m a fully fledged fan of…

Fjallraven Övik Scandinavian Sweater Review

  The Fjallraven Övik Scandinavian Sweater is the men’s version of the Fjallraven ladies Ovik Sweater which Vicky reviewed last month. She absolutely loves her Ovik Sweater and I am so happy to have one of my own too (although we have to make sure we don’t wear them both at the same time).   This sweater is knitted from a very soft wool blend. Wool is a fantastic natural material and even though it looks rustic and comfy it…
