Mini-Trip: Sunny Brighton

I wore:
 Pink crop tee-Zara
Floral midi skirt- Charity shop
Black belt-Flea market
Asos floral blouse via Charity shop
Cut off jeans- Charity shop, customised by moi
( I did wear another outfit to the gig but forgot to take pics whoops!)

I had such an amazing time in Brighton! The weather was fantastic, the hotel was cute and I just loved the atmosphere of the seaside city. However public transport was not on our side, collectively we were delayed/waiting/broken down/stuck in traffic for around 8 hours!! The Megabus from Preston to Brighton took 11 hours instead of the initial 8 which was tedious but worth the £30 return fare for the both of us. Mikey absolutely loved it too; he fell in love with the huge turtle at the Sealife centre, got to see his favourite band-The Vile Imbeciles and cried a bit when I beat him at crazy golf. One purpose of doing all these mini-trips is to get an idea of where we want to move after we both finish uni. Preston is definitely not the place for us! So far Brighton is a very strong contender as we had such a relaxing, fun few days and the city is buzzing with creativity which is exactly what we want :)

Have you been to Brighton before?Where is your favourite place to visit in the UK?

I've extended my giveaway until the 10th July so don't forget to ENTER to win a gorgeous dream-catcher necklace and a voucher for my soon-to-be-launched vintage shop!

ALSO if you haven't already please could you take a moment to vote for me in the competition. Its only running for another three days and I'm 10th out of 2666 entries! I need to be in the top three to be a guaranteed finalist but Very also choose a wildcard entry too so I have my fingers crossed!


  1. we're going to brighton in a few weeks - tho I've been loads before, and we were lucky to live nearby for a while - its one of my favourite places as its got the sea/city combination plus the amazing light quality and quirky architecture. love your photos; you look like you had a brill time.

  2. You look great! And these pics are fab.
    I've always wanted to go to Brighton, i live too far and I hate to travel - lame excuse, i know! But will soon plan a road trip there soon! x

  3. I'm so happy you played crazy golf! I really want to visit Brighton, it's on my list of places

  4. I haven't been to Brighton in years and am very envious of your trip. Your photos are beautiful.
    I'm very taken with that giant cat's insane grin.
    11 hours? Phew! A flight to India is shorter than that (but obviously not as bargainacious).
    I love Totnes in Devon, it's my favourite place in the UK. x

  5. NO WAY! I'm in the Very comp, too! Hahaha, Rachelle Bell, right? I definitely recognise you! I had no idea you had a blog, so I'm incredibly excited I found it!
    Ahhh... I've just had the funnest 10 minutes flicking through your posts on this here blog. You have great style and I really love your taste. That floral top you miraculously found while thrifting? Totally amazing. I'd wear it in a heartbeat - I just don't have the same luck when visiting charity shops, unfortunately!

    Anyway, happily following your blog now! Best of luck in the contest, I'd be happy if someone with your edge won it! (Then again, I'd be happy if I won, too. Hahahaha.) Especially since a few of those ladies are so obviously cheating. 250 votes in under 6 hours? Yeah, right.

    There is a bead shop on lanes called the brighton bead company and I can not get enough of the place! Snoopers paradise is also a really good vintage place

  12. All these photos are so pretty, love the blue frog!
    I have never been to Brighton, it would take me aaaages to get there. I went to Birmingham for the first time this weekend and loved it, some nice places to shop and eat. My fave place ever is Hay on Wye, its a village in Wales on the border and most of the shops there sell books and they have a literary festival there every year. Well worth a visit x

  13. Awesome pictures! I've never seen a blue frog before..that was pretty cool! xoxoxoo

  14. I am in love with your hair and I want that blue frog as a pet.
