Dinky Donuts by the Bay

A little trip to Cullercoats beach the other day with my daughter. I thought it was a good idea to take advantage of the beautiful spring like sunshine (albeit it being odd in February) and head to the coast line. Again I am so lucky to have this place practically on my doorstep.

If you’re ever thinking of visiting the area (when it’s safe to travel again) I would recommend this place it’s beautiful, especially if you catch it with just the right light.

I must admit I took these photographs on my I phone so I hope you can appreciate the full extent of it’s beauty. I snapped these photographs with little effort. It is, truly stunning.

I always find it pretty amazing that surfers practice in the sea here. I mean even in summer the water is ice cold. Perhaps there are benefits to being ice cold that I am unaware of? I am a creature of comfort for the most part. I find the north of England unbearably cold most of the time but the surfers always look so happy.

If I was a little braver it’s something I would try. Maybe I should add it to the bucket list and see if it makes me able to tolerate the cold a little more. Still, there’s some awesome surf shops, where you can buy all the correct equipment and there’s a variety of places that offer award winning lessons, if you’re into that sort of thing.

There’s even a surf cafe in Tynemouth with is just a short and beautiful walk away that I would highly recommend. See their account on Instagram here.

At the top of the bay there’s a little park with a cute assortment of things to play on for the little ones. There’s even a mini beach with diggers so we had great fun making some sandcastles and playing on the rides. My mini me approved.

I scrubbed healthy eating and got some Dinky donuts covered in Nutella. We shared them so it wasn’t like I ate them all, but I must admit, they were worth it. There’s a whole array of cafes and restaurants though so you can choose all sorts of snacks, these ones just spoke to my soul.

Finally I thought I’d share a couple of beauty products I’ve been loving recently. The first being this vitamin C serum. I’ve been using this everyday and generously after I Derma Roll. If you’d like to read my post on Derma Rolling you can here:

I’m also loving this lip moisturiser from NUXE, it’s really moisturising and perfect for winter. I would recommend, it contains macadamia seed oil, almond oil and honey. It gets the job done if you’re like me and get chapped lips in the cold winter air.

Have a gorgeous Sunday everyone,

If you’re living in the UK I hope you’re feeling a little happier as I am. It’s been such a relief to find out the end of this pandemic is in sight. We’re not out of it yet but at least we’ve got summer to look forward to. I can’t wait to give my mum the biggest hug.

How about you? What’s the first thing you will do? Comment below….
