I thought I'd share a few of my photos I got whilst visiting Brighton. Including a quick outfit photo I managed to get on the pier. Unfortunately as you can see, the weather was awful but me and my friend Lauren had an awesome time visiting Roisin. I'll give you a little run down of what happened whilst I was there! I've also included a few recommendations if you're ever in Brighton or Hove.
We arrived at about three and we went straight out for drinks and good food. There is a great pub in Hove called The Ancient Mariner. It's a great little pub that does wonderful food and we had a few glasses/bottles of Rose. It's always good to catch up over good food and wine! After that we went and met a few of Roisin's friends, where we were greeted warmly and played deadly drinking games which resulted in a very drunken game of twister. Oops.
When we got up on Friday morning we were not feel 100% but we went into Brighton Town Centre. Even though it was absolutely pouring down we went around The Laines and popped into Snoopers Paradise. That is one of my favourite shops in the world. If you're a big snooper, as the name suggests, you will love it in there. I usually buy something from there every time I've visited. This time me and my friends jumped into the photo machine (the scientific name!?) and we got this lovely snapshot. I popped into Choccy Woccy Doodah, and whilst expensive, the cakes are beautiful and well worth a look. We treated ourselves to a Bagelmann, then went back to Roisin's for pizza and films and a recovery!
The weather was dryer and a little cooler today, so we went onto the pier for a wander. Lauren and Roisin had a dance off that even Dirty Dancing would be jealous of. We then wandered to the end of the pier and back to another lovely pub called the Cricketers where we had dinner. We walked back up The Laines, where we visited the best fudge shop ever. It's called Roly's Fudge Pantry, and they make it fresh so you can smell it as you walk in. So we went back again and bought some more. I also treated myself to a ring which is beautiful, and a few items of clothing from some shops! I will show them soon...
As it was mother's day we spent the day with Roisin's mum. We went to the beach and had a wander. It's a lovely beach, it's just a shame the sun refused to shine! I was treated to a view of the singer, Adele's house and a very creamy hot chocolate in the seaside cafe. Unfortunately we then had to come home.
I honestly love Brighton, and I'd love to live there one day. I'm very lucky to had such a good friend who lives there who has an awesome Mum, who is very open and welcoming. But I would wholeheartedly recommend that you go for a weekend break there if you can. Especially in the summer, I'm already making plans in my head to go again!
