Our Bristol adventures with Kim.

I can't believe my year in Birmingham is nearly over. The saddest part is that I have started saying goodbye to some of the amazing friends I have made here. So with a few of the remaining ones we decided to take one last trip together, which was to Bristol- one of my favourite cities in the UK. We were so lucky with the weather, it was an amazing day, despite having to wake up at 4:45 in the morning, it was so worth it!

Another important reason for choosing Bristol for our destination was visiting my friend Kim, who I hadn't seen since February = waay too long. She's the best.

Kim lives just outside of Bristol in the lovely village of Cleeve, where she has her own wool shop called Alternit Universe, which will be opening this Autumn. She is also the owner of Art Equals Happy, which you can find out more about here. Kim makes her own wool, values all things that are handmade and 100% natural and just tries to make people happy with her products.

She certainly makes me happy whenever I get to see her (and her amazing parents!), which is not nearly as much as I'd like to. It's so nice to know that I can come and spend some time with them whenever I get sick of big cities or if I just want to play some board games, do a little crafting and watch some Mighty Boosh.
So if you like wool, colours, Harry Potter and lovely people and ever find yourself in the Bristol area, definitely pay this place a visit, you will be on cloud nine.
