I have a great appreciation of art, especially local art down here in Cornwall. I remember years ago doing GCSE art at school and taking trips to places like St Michael’s Mount down at Marazion, and St Ives where we gathered inspiration for our projects.
When an opportunity arose to review a gorgeous vintage style art poster from The John Dyer Gallery, it really was one of those offers you just don’t turn down.
The John Dyer Gallery
Only a few miles from me, The John Dyer Gallery is situated in Falmouth, a beautiful seaside town in Cornwall with many attractions. The gallery itself is predominately online but it does take private bookings if you wish to view the artists work.
Run by husband and wife team John Dyer and Joanne Short the gallery represents the wonderful art work of John Dyer, Ted Dyer and Joanne Short. They showcase their very best original paintings and prints.
As well as paintings and prints you can buy various gifts with designed with The John Dyer Gallery contemporary artwork , like phone cases, iPad covers, homeware and accessories, they really do have something for everyone!

You might think that going green is just about helping the planet. But actually, it could help you too and greatly improve your life.
One of the obvious ways going green could help is through saving money.
By using less energy, you’ll also be spending less money on your bills which is fantastic. It certainly makes life easier when you’re trying to raise a family.

If you do this, we’re sure there will be no need for those expensive fuel bills.
Here are few other ways going green could improve your life.
Anxiety is a horrendous condition. Rational or not, it’s all too real to the person experiencing it. Symptoms include sweating palms, increased heart rate, and panic attacks. And the worst part? Many people misinterpret the severity of anxiety. The strangest thing is, we all experience it in some form or another. It may not always go to the levels described above, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t anxiety. Do you avoid a room if you know there’s a spider in it? Do you fail to make health checkups when you need to? Both of these are examples of allowing anxiety to alter your behavior. So, even if you don’t think anxiety is something you suffer from, it may have more of an impact on your life than you think.
In this increasingly busy world that we live in, it can be hard to find spiritual peace. I know in my life finding 2 minutes peace is tough! But when I can I find my inner peace by reading a great book.
Here are some tips to help you find yours…
Start Eating Healthily
There’s no better way to feel happy and healthy than by making sure that what goes into your body is healthy. Let’s get one thing straight – no one is saying that you need to only eat fresh fruits and vegetables and cut out the chocolate altogether. That just isn’t a practical or enjoyable way to live. Instead, you should do your best to make your food from fresh, to cut out any nasty chemicals and preservatives that are found in convenience foods and to cut down your salt and sugar intake. This will be good for your blood pressure, your teeth and your moods. You should also make sure that your portion size isn’t too big – a lot of people gain weight simply by eating too much. You should also make sure that you don’t feel guilty about what you eat. Some potato chips and cookies every now and then aren’t so bad. ‘Clean’ eating is a myth because it implies that some food is dirty. Eat everything in moderation and you’ll be just fine.
