While waiting for a new sofa, I've mostly been having picnics on my lounge floor and really appreciating that sitting on the floor isn't actually as comfy or as 'cool' as I thought it might be. And it's kind of hard after a while.
So I went to see a second hand sofa in Bristol and while I was there I decided to pop along to Clifton. Clifton is a really cool village in Bristol that's just bursting with a cool creative urban vibe ...and a few Banksy originals dotted in between.
My Twitter followers were fast to recommend lots of their favourite eateries, so I set about finding one of them, the Primrose Cafe. And I was far from disappointed! I LOVED this place. Walking down this little 'laneway' street reminded me of Melbourne so much - and the coffee was perfect. I was one happy Clifton coffee'd up bunny.
a) Thank you Primrose Cafe for this perfect coffee! Do you send by courier? ;)
b) Beautiful colourful, fresh fruit and veg from 'Reg the Veg' shop in the same laneway. I wish I'd bought my shopping bags!
c) A cool tea-towel in a shop window! Clifton is full of artsy shops and galleries with cool unique finds from independent traders. I liked them all!
d) The cool laneway - outdoor seating! This looked even more beautiful in the sunshine (but it sadly went in behind the clouds when I took this photo!)
e) A really sweet little flower shop.
f) Crumbs magazine - I'd followed these guys for a while on Twitter so I was excited when I found a copy in a cafe here which I leafed through while sipping on a cup of tea. I discovered so many other Bristol eateries that I am already planning my next excuse to go!
Thank you to all the Twitter'ers that recommended their favourite cafes! I'll be back soon. Love you all x
