The Start Of My Summer: Cornwall & An EPIC Competition!


Sooooo, this week well and bloody truly marked the start of summer didn't it?! The weather has been HUNREAL and I was SO lucky to be down in Cornwall soaking up the rays! I booked a surprise trip for my dad and step mum as it's their 60th birthdays this year, we stayed in the cutest cottage (more on that soon and 17864387539 tips on Cornwall because it's the BEST place ever), but the whole weekend we were just like 'is this weather for realz?!' - from the moment we left to the day we came home it was 27-31 degrees, ALL of the time... and exactly HOW often does that happen here in the UK?! It was just the most blissful weekend ever, and for me, it really did feel like the start of Summer and a snippet of what's to come!

To celebrate Midsummer, I took my favourite Rekorderlig ciders down to Holywell beach for an afternoon of sunbathing, drinking cider and watching the surfers.. OI OI. I opted for the Passionfruit cider and my step mum picked the Strawberry & Lime flavour, fruit cider is my absolute go-to in the summer and the WHOLE time we were in Cornwall my stepmom and I were begging my dad to stop off at any pub that served it - PROMISE we're not alcoholics, just quenching our thirst 😉 As this weekend (Saturday the 24th) marks the start of the Swedish midsummer, Rekorderlig asked me to share the start of my summer; which simply has to be our magical weekend in Cornwall, from here in on I'm going to be planning lots of BBQ's with friends, day festivals and weekends away in the UK! I adore the UK in the summer and what better way to spend it than with cider and friends?! 


Now, let's talk about the FUN part! Rekorderlig are running a SUPER SASSY competition for my readers where you can win a Nikon D3300 SLR camera (super JEL I must say!) and a dreamy Kanken backpack (perfect travel companion!). It's SUPER easy to enter.. all you have to do is share a picture to your Instagram of how you're starting your summer (cooking your favourite recipe, having a picnic with friends or through a change of fashion). Make sure you tag myself @Frockmeimfamous and @RekorderligCider and use the hashtag #StartTheSwedishWay to enter! Rekorderlig will be picking the winner at random, which I'll contact to let you know you've won... GOOD LUCK BEAUTS! <3


How will you be starting your summer this year? Any fun plans here in the UK or abroad? What are your favourite Rekorderlig flavours?

    You most definitely picked the right time to go!! This weather has been CA-RAY-ZEE!! and I’ve been loving every minute (I’m sure I’d think otherwise if I was working though, haha!) I’m glad you had such a lovely time down in Cornwall, I’m missing it so much, I definitely need to head back down! I had a lovely celebration last night with my gals, gossip and a big jug of Pimm’s! I’m with you though, after Pimm’s, Rekorderlig cider is just a must in sunny weather – I’m a berry fan though so love the Summer Berries or Strawberry and Lime flavours!

    Love the sound of this competition too! When does it go on till? I’m ready to start my summer with my trip to Budapest next week!!
