The View, Tynemouth.

Living in the north east, we are very lucky to be so close to the coast and that is something I really missed when I was away for uni. We visit Tynemouth quite a bit, it’s not by any means the nearest beach for us to go to but there is more to do there. We usually take Ruby, our dog, down to the beach on a Sunday morning and…

A Calligraphy Haul.

New Hair By Reef Salons.

If you are anything like me, you will find it hard to get a really great hair dressers. You try a few and they’re not bad but you’re not overly wowed by them. I feel like if you find a good hair dressers, you should pay or travel for them, they’re a rare thing. I was browsing twitter one evening and I seen that Reef Salon at Ramside Hall had…
