I love Brighton. Every time I visit I'm always reminded that I've forgotten just how much I do love it, along with its bright colours, bunting, interesting shops, cafés and people. The salty sea air always relaxes me, no matter if its raining or scorching you will always see me enjoying a good ol' proper fish & chips on the pier, contemplating what fun those 2p machines in the arcade will be. It is very easy to get lost though, but then again I think that pushes me to explore more, especially in the North Laines and The Lanes which are located a bit further South towards the beach. On my last visit I spent a lonnnnnng time in Snoopers Paradise, and it really is a paradise for snoopy people like me! (for looking through home wear that is...) I so wished I lived locally so that I could buy all the gorgeous furniture in there.. oh well, I settled for some vintage polaroids instead. On my way back down to the beach I stopped off at MAC and I have to say I was surprisingly disappointed with the range that they had on display. None of the colours spoke to me whatsoever and whilst that isn't their fault, it was a bit of a let down because I was looking forward to buying some goodies. Anyways, no regrets because we ended up back down at the beach, sitting in the shade, drinking slush puppies and getting brain freeze - weeee!
As you can probably tell I didn't take these on my DSLR but nonetheless I really like these and have to admit I did enjoy taking in my surroundings more without looking through a view finder every 10 minutes! Sometimes its the little things that can make all the difference.
Oh I wish the weather was still as nice as it was that day! I have to say though, I am enjoying snuggling up under a duvet, drinking hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and wearing fluffy socks everywhere I go!
Mmmm Autumn is a-coming!
