castle road

Crikey, I've been a right rubbish blogger lately - one post in over two weeks; sorry about that folks! In my defence, I've started a new job, and when I'm not working we've been out and about - so I've had plenty to share but no time to actually blog about it!

These photos are from a few weeks ago (the Easter holidays actually, and it's half term next week.... ahem); it was the last day, and the weather was so beautiful that we decided to just spend the whole day out in the sunshine. I love where we live; OK, so where our actual house is isn't that great, but travel a few miles in any direction and you've got beautiful beaches, rolling countryside, market towns, independent shops... I realise I sound like the Tourism board for Portsmouth, but I really do love it!

Castle Road is one of my new favourite places; some great shops have popped up, my lovely hairdresser is there, and it's a stones throw from the beach and a pretty good park. On the day we went, they had a street festival on; plenty of vintage clothes, crafts, an artisan pizza stall, vegetarian and vegan streetfood (and an entire stall dedicated to cheese toasties - heaven!) and live music; although there were plenty of littluns around, mine weren't in the slightest bit interested so we didn't stop, but it's definitely something I'll be looking out for in the future.

I did manage a quick wander around the fabulous Revive Interiors though; packed full of vintage and rustic homewares, and with a REALLY good clothes section, it's the type of shop I could happily spend ages in, just pottering about. Looking at these photos now, I really regret leaving that enamel teapot and saucepan behind!


  1. Sounds and looks amazing! I HATE where I live with a passion, hopefully we are getting out of here soon though! x

  2. It looks lovely there & I love that basket in Revive Interiors, i'd have snapped that up!

  3. First of all well done on starting a new job and wow you do sound busy. Castle road seems like an amazing place - love the look of the shops

  4. This is the place for a beautiful wedding. The ceremony was held in the dining hall, which commands a breath-taking view of the city. I only wish I appreciated banquet halls in Chicago more when I was there. Oh well. You live and learn.


Thank you for stopping by, do say hello!
