A Weekend in East Sussex | Brighton

My mum always used to tell me stories of her time in Brighton when she was younger. Having gone to school in Kent and had friends in schools around East Sussex, it was one of their places for meeting up. Sussex was my second choice for university and I had never had the chance to visit so Laura used this opportunity to show me round on my first full day in Brighton.

First up, we stopped at La Choza, a local Mexican street food restaurant for some yummy burritos and Tostadas. After filling our bellies, we strolled around the cobbled streets and dipped in and out of the shops. Also stopped at a local organic supermarket for some black beans and coconut oil (I blame Goop!). The atmosphere in the city is very laid back and relaxed with a very diverse range of shops around the city centre. Only had one afternoon in Brighton and its definitely somewhere I would love to visit again for longer time.

Beachy Head

Skirt/Charity Shop; Top & Shoes/Topshop; Scarf/Local Market

One of the best things about being on holiday is having the chance to take some beautiful pictures in gorgeous locations. Whilst I was with Laura, we did quite a lot of sightseeing. On the way into Eastbourne, we stopped off at the cliff to have a look and take in the sights. It was quite scary to be standing so close to the edge and seeing other people standing even closer but very beautiful indeed. 

For the bad hair days and the days where I really can’t be bothered to have my hair down, scarfs have become the staple. A friend of mine from work recently took me to Longsight Market in Manchester where they have so scarfs in so many different prints, shapes and sizes. The best thing is they are all three for £5.
