Jennifer Tulip and DJ jay



Hello and welcome. I'm Jenni Tulip, a bright-haired Yorkshire born and bred country bumpkin with a passion for the outdoors.

I live with my partner, Dave, in our little piece of woodland we jointly own with my step dad, Ian, on the East side of God's Own County; Yorkshire. The woodland is our playground, our school, our office and our home. We share it with nature, after all, they were here before us.

Together, we're on a journey to slow down, reconnect with nature and grow within our environment.

Through this blog I share this journey with stories of walking, camping, exploring, nature and travel






I’m in my element while outdoors, exploring the countryside, hiking in the hills and going on camping trips. The natural world amazes me so I spend many hours watching documentaries and searching for wildlife. 




I’m a bit of a crazy bird lady as I have a passion for all feathery creatures and have reared many baby birds from ducklings to magpies. We have two fuzzy ferrets called Bramble and Bracken, a hand-reared magpie called Magnus, a hand-reared jay called DJ, a lurcher called Paddy and eleven hens, who all appear on my Instagram frequently.






This is my partner Dave. He's an IT manager working in the city by day and enjoys working on his campervan by night.  Ian is a timber merchant and owner of Yorkshire Woodland Products, selling timber, logs and charcoal from our yard. By day, I'm a social media consultant running my own business, SocialRocks. from my home office. 




I co-organise Outdoor Bloggers; a community for people who blog about anything to do with the outdoors. Zoe from Splodz Blogz and I set up Outdoor Bloggers in 2014 and the community has over 200 members who love sharing their experiences about the outdoors and meeting like-minded people. We organise meet-ups, share ideas in a private Facebook Group and work closely with brands and marketing agencies to create opportunities to bring bloggers and brands together.

We love going on adventures. Our favourite past time is travelling to the hills in our VW campervan and stopping off along the way for a cuppa while looking out at the beautiful landscape.

Oh, and my hair colour changes as frequently as the wind.
