What I Wore Today – The Perfect Day

This weekend has officially been the best welcome to March – what started as a stressful and overwhelming week has turned into something far more relaxing and fun.

I drove home for the weekend on Thursday afternoon and have had so much fun since I’ve been back! On Friday I went shopping in Bath with my Mum which was lovely! Saturday was my Dad’s birthday so I spent the day with my Family just relaxing and going out for an evening meal. Sunday was the cherry on top of an already lovely weekend especially because the weather was so amazing!

I met with a few friends in the morning and we decided to drive to Burton Bradstock, a small beach in Dorset. Living on the coast is the best thing ever and I miss it so much when I’m at Uni so getting the chance to go home and have a walk on the beach is one of my favourite things to do!  Even though it was super sunny the beach was still cold (obviously) I really was hopeful that it was now summer and I could get away with no coat!

I had a little help from my favourite critter whilst taking the images for this post! Seeing my pets is always one of the main reasons I have to go home because I miss them so much when I’m away. Mischief is my dog, but she really believes that she’s human – and she wanted to be next to me in all of my photos! She’s adorable.

When I was in Bath with my mum I picked up a few new things including this t-shirt. It was one of the only things I saw and instantly fell in love with- I also saw a pink skirt that would go with it SO well but I managed to resist, proud of myself! On Saturday I popped into town with my sister Elspeth (who also took these pics! Thanks els) and found these beautiful sunglasses! I saw them and again fell instantly in love. Who needs boys when you have clothes!

I had such a lovely weekend but it really caught up with me this week and I fell a bit behind with my work hence why I’ve only just got around to posting this! I’m hoping that I can spare another weekend soon to go home again because it makes me so happy and I feel so much more refreshed!

Travel 2014 – Brighton

20140505-220158.jpg

It’s been a while since my last post- I travelled back to England on the 3rd April and I’ve not had a spare minute to catch up on my blog! I’ve got a lot to share over the next few weeks, so keep your eye out for all the news and stories of my hectic month.

On the 13th April I finally managed to get myself to Brighton. This is a town that for reasons unknown has always attracted me. Everyone has always told me “it’s not that special” but I never believed them.

I was like an excited puppy upon (finally) arriving – the traffic was awful and apparently it’s really hard to find a car park!! The weather couldn’t have been better for an April’s day – it was bright and sunny and ‘almost’ warm (I’m no longer used to cold British temperatures!!)

The pier was amazing. To my knowledge I’ve never been along a pier like it (but I have the worst memory for things like that – so who knows!) It was literally like Weymouth sea front stuck on stilts and in the water. You can get anything you’d typically expect to find at a UK seaside town – just on the pier. You can buy sweets, drinks, sticks of rock, and fish and chips, and there are also loads of rides and places to sit to just enjoy the view.

Brighton it’s self is very hilly, which is something I didn’t expect. It’s also quite small, and quite expensive. The fish & chips were average and there were TOO many seagulls. At one point it was apparent we were under attack, but this wasn’t helped by the man behind us feeding them while we were trying to eat our lunch!

To conclude, I will agree it wasn’t anything too special. There isn’t a lot there that you won’t find at any other seaside town. This aside I’m still really glad I went to see it for myself as it is somewhere I’ve wanted to go for years now, and they have a Tiger (my favourite shop) so if nothing else it was 100% worth going just for that! Obviously that’s alongside the sunshine, fun car journey and finally getting to sit on the beach!

Oh, and lastly, DO NOT FEED THE SEAGULLS!
