  • Pineapple Pornstar in the post, anyone? As it’s a glass half-full sorta day (where the hell’s summer gone?!) I thought I’d top you up with this chance to win a fabulous free four-month subscription to the @devoncovevodka Cocktail Club, worth £119.48. A different cocktail kit comes via the postie, enough for four tipples, including the likes of Espresso Martini, Cove Royale, or your classic Cosmo. I know, I’m the perfect hostess! No need to thank me, just get yourself over to the link in bio to enter. 🍸🍍
  • Choosing a family holiday is never easy – you want culture and great food, your other half wants to sunbathe, the kids demand a waterslide, and your teens want to ignore you! The good news is that @disneycruiseline will tick all of those boxes, and then some. Even better, it’s introducing brand new European travel routes for 2023 and Muddy has the inside track. Link in bio.
  • If you’re in Saturday shopping mode, here’s one to add to add to basket. In a nod to the cost of living crisis, the talented #devon artist @beckybettesworth has whipped 20% off all her A2 prints which include many travel posters of Devon places, inspired by the vintage style of old travel and railway posters. Now £18.50, a saving of £5.50 each and all available online. I feel a splurge coming on…
  • Paddle-boarding goals…find a private cove with caves and learn how to film it without falling off the board! Aren’t our sandstone cliffs stunning? And what do you think of the new wheels? You strap them around the paddle boards, hitch the front to the bike and you can cycle to the beach with the boards fully inflated, and you’re ready to go. Just be careful rounding the corners and be prepared for quite a lot of stares!
