about & faq…


The Little Pip | Little Kin photography-1Hello. Welcome. I’m Rachel and I live with my husband and children. In the summer of 2017 we left London after 12 years and moved to the north Cornish coast.

Pip is our 7-year-old daughter and our son (known here as Buster or LB – Little Baby, or Little Brother) joined the family in April 2016.

This blog is a family lifestyle blog with a focus on Cornwall, celebrating seasonal living and life as a family. My Cornish Year combines my personal diary with home, interiors, travel, and parent-focused editorial.

Pip & Buster are pseudonyms, although I do use them sometimes in real life as a nick-name for them too.

My guide to surviving pregnancy and motherhood can be found here – I am adding all my favourite posts to it gradually.


I love hearing from readers so please feel free to email me. You can also take a look at the FAQs below.

If you’re interested in advertising or doing a sponsored post, please email me for my rates and details.


How do I advertise?

I enjoy engaging with brands, participating in brand campaigns and recommending products to my readers. I accept adverts and sponsored posts as well as products for review, so long as the product or service in question fits with the general aesthetic of my blog.  Please email me to discuss further.

Whilst I hope that events, products and samples will result in a blog post, I reserve the right not to post in all cases. Not everything will make it onto the blog and I will always give my own opinion.

How can I tell when I am reading sponsored content either on the blog or social media?

I will always disclose when I have been sent a product, sample or received remuneration. All views and opinions are independent and my own. I will mark things as follows:

#AD – this means I have been paid for the post and sent product to review

#AD – gifted – this means I have not been paid for the post but I have received product to review

I will also declare where I have bought an item and have a previous commercial relationship with the brand.

Remuneration goes towards the running costs of the blog.

Links will be live for 12 months and then may be removed or deleted.

Tell me more about affiliate links 

I sometimes include affiliate links within certain posts, which means that I may make a small commission if a product is purchased through the link. It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, that a reader would never pay more for a product through an affiliate link. I only include affiliate links if it is an organic fit and only when I would have included them regardless and will always indicate which ones are affiliate links, here and on social media. On social media I will use #AFF to denote the link, here on the blog it will have a * and be referenced at the foot of the post.

Please feel free to email me at rachelprimrosehill (at) gmail (dot) com if you have any questions at all.
