It's a tough shout between Liverpool and Brighton, but after London I'm pretty sure the latter is my favourite city in the UK. Every time I visit, whether peeing it down with rain (and so windy one can't even walk along the seafront) or gloriously sunny, it continues to supply me with a roll of marvelous summer memories and always persuades me to hop on that train from the big smoke.

This time, I was down for The Great Escape festival snapping street pictures for Company, and also indulging in some live music and good food with friends- not bad huh? Gem and I's first day consisted of work, a stroll along the pebbled beach (hooray for the sunshine) and dining at Giraffe after realising it's necessary to book restaurants ('til next time, Bills...) We also managed to catch Beach Fossils, We Were Evergreen and Melody's Echo Chamber (big love)- but more on them soon. 00000 IMG_6529p 99999
After taking a pretty vast selection of outfits for our stay (who can blame me with this weather) I opted for a new denim collared smock dress from my favourite, Olive- which is safely now a staple in my wardrobe, and the perfect tights-or-no-tights-still-nice dress. I also popped on my new patent jelly style shoes from Sarenza- which although secured the toddler look, were incredibly comfortable- and hey, if Office and Topshop are doin' them, then they can't be too child like. 111111 IMG_6316p 222222
After whiling the afternoon away, and exploring the colourful streets of Kemptown, we headed back to our hotel for the couple of days, Snooze. Having stayed here before with Joe- I was incredibly excited to try out another room and head back to one of my favourite boutique hotels. We went for Room Number 7, which was described as having a hint of 'Asian Persuasion' and Eastern promise- and turned out to be everything we'd hoped for and more. With amazing breakfasts every morning, hot chocolates at night and feeling like a home away from home- I can't wait until my next trip.

  19. I LOVE Brighton!! I went for a weekend away with a bunch of my guy friends last year and we just had the nicest time (although one of us - ahem - may have gotten slightly too drunk at one of the clubs). I love the seaside and all the nostalgic things that come with it - fish & chips, ice creams, etc.
    I hope you had a lovely time!
