St Ives!

Hello and welcome back to my blog!

Today’s post is all about the beautiful St Ives! St Ives is famous for its art residents because hopefully as you can see in these photos that the light in St Ives is beautiful and very uniqu. Because of this there is the Tate St Ives which showcases modern British artists with links to the St Ives area, luckily for me as I am a Heligan staff member I got in for free! But if you are a student it is only £6 entry, this I think is an okay price as it is a very tiny art exhibition but, the building in which it is in is beautiful.

All throughout St Ives there is lots of lovely independent and unique shops making it a great place to visit rain or shine, or in our case showers. There is also plenty of places to eat and drink, some of my favourites are; the Raw Chocolate Pie Company which I actually bought quite a few bars of raw chocolate and fudge from, they were delicious! They always have loads of tasters for you so you can try before you buy. Willy Wallers had such a massive selection of ice creams and sorbets, I went for the coconut bounty with a cute nobbly bobbly type cone. Actually in these photos you can actually see a seagull trying to attack me and eat my ice cream, haha, make sure you keep your food close if you want to eat it! (I should know better). And of course Hub, St Ives which was the original location and now they have lots of restaurants all around the South West, they do the best burgers and chips and have so many vegetarian and vegan options! In fact when we first arrived in St Ives they were closed due to fitting new appliances so we waited three hours for them to open because the food is just so good and definitely worth the wait!

St Ives is a must see if you’re ever visiting Cornwall, it has its own charm and history which is slightly different to the rest of the Cornish coast. I hope you enjoyed this short post and add St Ives to your bucket list!

Lots of love, Melissa x

    How’s it going, melissa_carne?

    Don’t you wish you had a chance at being Instagram famous?

    Ever thought about what it feels like to be an Instagram Influencer?

    Now, imagine that it’s Friday and you have just woken up from a sound slumber.

    Roll over, check the phone.

    Navigate your way to your page.

    You‘re surprised at what you see: Over 832 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you can see a flurry of likes on your pictures–over 652 on a single photo alone.

    You put your super-duper soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some coffee. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.

    Presto! Another 63 likes.

    Here comes another one. This time it’s not a like but a message from one of your followers. They flatter you on your success and let you know they love scrolling through your content.

    The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there’s another message–this time from a young girl–thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and your’e an inspiration.

    As you sip your tea, you start typing up a response. But then your cell buzzes.

    Oops, another ping. But no time to reply—you’ve got to hit the gym.
    Listen, melissa_carne, most people just aren’t in control of their life. Seriously, they can’t even force themselves to munch a balanced breakfast, much less hit the gym.

    My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results do not lie.)

    Now, what if you raised your engagement by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it is not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

    Our pro-rated, confidential service quickly sends likes to your pictures a few minutes after you’ve posted them.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, does not seem that far away.

    Sound too good for reality? Here’s what you have got to do to get a taste:
    1. Click
    2. Enter in your Instagram username.
    3. Your three most recent pictures will get 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Being a everyday name on that page will supercharge your growth 10x, easy. You know where the answer to fame is. Now reach for it. Are you ready?

    Happy image-uploading.
