Family Trip To South Wales

Helloo,

I'm finally back with another post and it's yet another little getaway. I spent last week in Wales with Corey and my mum. We stayed in Llannelli, South Wales. I took so many (what I think are) lovely pictures and just had to share. 

**warning - picture heavy post** 

CENTRAL LLANELLI

We stayed in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire which is South Wales, around half hour from Swansea. Close to where my mum grew up for a good like 10 years of her childhood. We stayed in good old Travelodge - sharing a room with a snoring naughty 4 year old is not much fun!! They didn't have a restaurant though which was quite gutted about not being able to have their yummy breakfasts. Took a few snaps of the main high street, Corey and a yummy Hungry Horse dessert..

MUMBLES PIER, SWANSEA

A lovely little Pier situated in a little part of Swansea. It was absolutely beautiful, even though the day started off rainy but the sun came out eventually. They were in the middle of doing the whole pier up, the lifeboat tower, amusements and restaurant had clearly been done up but the pier itself was all railed up and in the process still. We got there in time to watch them launch the lifeboat which was really quite cool, something a bit different - Corey loved it besides the loud noises! We then headed the little beautiful restaurant where they served great food and had a grand piano that played itself which was fascinating for both Corey and I. Will be great to go back one day and see the rest of the pier finished as really was beautiful :)

MILLENNIUM COASTAL PARK, LLANELLI

I would say this is like a bit of a beach, and it is but without the sand. A lovely place to walk down if you get the weather on a good day. People were sailing, flying kites and walking dogs. Really was just a lovely little place, Corey will be able to ride his bike down here next time which will be really lovely :)

FFOS LAS HORSE RACING, CARMARTHENSHIRE

Nearby was a lovely race course, where they hold events every so often. We were lucky when visiting that they had a family day out kind of event. I admit the family bit was a bit of a push, they had like one bouncy castle and that was it. But non the less a lovely day out, I absolutely love horse racing and so does my mum. Corey got to see the horses doing their rounds before the races and we were standing right at the finish line for every race :)

You may have seen in last month's favourites that my mum booked us a trip to Wales, well we went this month. Despite a very grumpy and naughty little man we did have a good time, it was so beautiful and a place that will be visited often. I have a post coming on Wednesday with lots of pictures to share with you so keep an eye out :)

Here is this month's favourite family picture, including my mum too - on a pier in Wales :)


You may have seen by now about a new linky I have started. It is all for your monthly favourite blog posts (like this one!) or youtube videos, on any topic whether it be beauty, randoms, fashion, photos etc. It took a while to come up with a badge but I am pretty pleased with the outcome as I am not good at this whole design thing. If you want to join in pretty please click here and link up :) Also help spread the word on social media would be so greatly appreciated!

Monthly Favourites // Linky #3 - July 2015

Helloo,

Two months ago I started a new linky and it was really nerve wrecking. These things are always slow starting but hopefully will grow :) All based around monthly favourites. Thankyou so much to those that joined in last month!!! It is for all bloggers of any type whether it be parenting, lifestyle, beauty, travel etc. I see so many monthly favourite posts and videos around that I absolutely love reading but it came to my attention that as far as I could find there isn't a linky for them.

You will be able to link up any post or video. This isn't a your favourite post from the month, it's your monthly favourites so it could be your monthly favourites - beauty, randoms, lifestyle, fashion, pictures, anything that is monthly and favourites!! For example I will be adding my me and mine linky photo this month which includes a few things that I have loved about this month :)

**PLEASE READ & FOLLOW THE RULES**
