  • The local pub has been fab, but now it's time to indulge and try out some tasty new seasonal menus a bit further afield (until 10pm of course!) Head to Muddy's Weekend Escapes for the top foodie destinations across all 25 Muddy counties, from Michel-starred gaffs to gastronomical hotels and unique dining experiences. Elasticated trousers on? Let's go. (To the link in bio).

  • Quick shout-out for @exeter_gin’s hand sanitiser. It’s got essential oils in it so puts back what the alcohol takes away. The only one I’ve found that doesn’t dry your hands out. Love it. And their gin obviously but it’s only Tuesday so I’m being good. (Probably.)

  • Ain't no one more #inlovewithlocal than Muddy! We're planning a #Christmas indie pop up so we can all support the best #indie #shops in our region. Interested in taking part or know someone else who'd be the perfect fit? Message me to get in touch!🎄🎁
  • Just had a terrific totter round Tivvy and loved chatting to all the amazing entrepreneurial women, mums and daughter run businesses including @liznojan_books @mademoiselle_mojo @lanticgallery and a big high five to @diggle_and_sons, the newest kid on the indie block selling #organic goodies and amazing homemade pickles. If you want to support local, head to lower Gold St and check them out, they’re fab. ❤️
