My Birthday Trip Away To Brighton

Hello all! Apologies for my lack of posts recently, I've been a bit occupied! So as some of you may know, I visited Brighton for a long weekend to celebrate my 18th birthday. I went with my mum and dad and took along my friend Millie too (who you will see featured a lot in this post). 

I am so glad that I managed to take lots of photos so that I can remember what a fantastic time I had, and I thought it would be nice to select a few and put together a blogpost and share my pictures with you. 

I've wanted to go to Brighton for such a long time, it's just one of those places that always been on my bucket list, and I will tell you, it didn't fail to disappoint me. We were so lucky with the weather, had two lovely hot, sunny days, so as you can imagine the place was full of life and everybody was so happy, it was lovely. Brighton was everything I expected it to be, and more. I absolutely loved it there and 100% did not want to leave to come home. 

I felt like I fitted in perfectly there, it's definitely my dream place to live. It just has everything! You've got the beach which is absolutely stunning, then the pier which has so much character, it's definitely a gorgeous place to go for a stroll. The lanes full of quirky, individual shops were so lovely too, so picturesque. There were so many restaurants and cute little cafes to choose from which is great for me as I'm a huge coffee lover! Then theres the Churchill Square Shopping Centre which has your Topshop, H&M etc. I honestly couldn't name anything I didn't like about the place. The whole area just has a super relaxed atmosphere and I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more.

I did also attempt to blog whilst I was there so once that is edited and uploaded i'll be sure to leave a link somewhere down below.

Tea//Coffee break at PRET (the lanes)
Going in Space.NK was quite overwhelming, however I had already made a list on my phone of a few things I wanted to pick up, and yes, I managed to spend quite a bit of money...oops.
MAC in the lanes
Trying to get your photo taken on the pier is honestly such a challenge. Long hair and windy weather don't mix!
Gourmet Burger Kitchen (Californian Burger)
Panckakes and tea for Breakfast in the hotel (Blanch House)
There are so many cute little benches in the lanes that are perfect for nice photos
Fluffy heels that I fell in love with in Topshop
Italian Kitchen (upstairs in Churchill Shopping Centre)
Julian Plummet macaroon shop in the Lanes. I had a salted caramel macaroon and it was heavenly!!!
Taking this photo required balancing my camera on a dodgy wall, oh what I do for blogging photos haha
Moo Moo's shakes!
Posing in front of the beach
Gorgeous little ice cream parlour down on the seafront
What a beautiful place
The beach
Ready for the evening!
Lovely meal in an Italian restaurant, I do apologise but I can't remember the name.
The beach at night is beautiful...
Sunset Beach
Couldn't get more beautiful than this 
42 Juice Bar (recommended by Marcus Butler). This is the cutest little place ever. I fell in love with it, and the staff were super friendly, and it's all vegan!!
If you're into healthy juices and raw vegan drinks then definitely pop into 42 Juice if you're in the area!
They all look so yummy!
I went for the 'I AM TEMPTATION' Juice which tasted exactly like a chocolate milkshake, but super healthy!
HELL YEAH! Cannot believe I bumped into Zoe Sugg whilst shopping. I was so shocked and overwhelmed. She honestly couldn't have been lovelier! (Millie was also in this photo but wasn't really in shot so I cropped her out, agh i'm sorry)
The wheel!
Having a chill on the beach in the sun!
Love her xx
