I live in the Welsh countryside, close to the sea and the mountains. I am a country girl but I love travelling and visiting London for inspiration and new ideas. I love fashion, colour, art, good books, old films, baking and photography. I dream of a sparkling home in the city and a cottage in the country.
Although a lot of people in Wales don't speak Welsh, the influence the Welsh language has had on the way we speak is huge: we regularly use welsh words mixed in with our English vocabulary and our sentance structure is often governed by the way you would say things in Welsh. This mixture of a language is called Wenglish
Wenglish Word / phrase of the moment:
Let Loose: Acting in a wild manner; "Behave yourself, will you? - you're acting like as if you're let loose!"
