Jumper – Finisterre
Short – upcycled
It’s been a long time since I last posted. Life is so busy and lately we have been spending more and more time by the sea in particular Fistral beach in Newquay, Cornwall. I have found that balancing out work with fitness, walking on the beach and surfing is the best way to stay happy and relaxed. Unfortunately that means I don’t have quite as much time for blogging although I have found Instagram great for capturing the stuff I love and discovering new inspiration and it is also great when I am out and about and on the move.

The above picture was taken a few weeks back when we were having a BBQ on the cliffs over Fistral. There is nothing more relaxing than watching the waves roll in.
Clothes and fashion wise, my new more active and super relaxed life has meant a bit of a change in style. After gym or surfing sessions, I just want to wear warm and cosy clothes and I have found myself gravitating towards jeans, cut-offs vest tops, jumpers and trainers. Whilst I have been committed to sustainable and ethical fashion for a number of years, I now rarely buy new clothes. Instead I try my best to make use of what I already have or find something second hand or vintage. The more time I spend outdoors,the more I feel committed to limiting my impact on the environment.
This jumper was for my birthday but carefully chosen from a lovely Cornish based brand Finnisterre that describe their clothing as functional and sustainable, born for the needs of hard British surfers and made for those that share their love of the sea. It is the perfect cover up to keep cosy!
I have noticed that there are a few sustainable brands based in Cornwall.I I hope to blog about some more of them soon!
