What I Wore Today

Dress - H&M
Bag - Primark 
Sunglasses - Primark
Rings - Various flea markets 
Bracelet - Souk in Morocco 
Necklace - Lost At Sea Jewellery 
Nail polish - Rimmel 'Aqua Cool' 

Aloha! I bought most of the items in this outfit for my holiday to Barcelona next week, but since the weather is pretty much the same in Brighton at the moment I'm wearing it today to the beach. I wasn't planning on buying any more clothing for Barcelona, but I fell in love with this dress when I saw it and it was only £12.99. It's the perfect holiday dress; cool, flowing and comfortable but not too risqué. Also, sorry if I look a bit tired in these photos, I developed tonsillitis (again, argh!!) a few days ago and the combination of the antibiotics and not being able to sleep doesn't leave me looking too perky. I did my best to wack on a lot of blusher and a brave face, but to be honest the only thing that's getting me through the day is the thought of an icecream and a beer later on..

Weeklies no.18

1. Going out for the day with my new Beyond Retro bag 2. Mango and ginger smoothie 3. Celebrating birthday bellinis at Bills (that's enough alliteration for one day) 4. Going out for breakfast with wet hair because my dad doesn't have a hairdryer (one was purchased immediately upon realisation) 5. The sky looking a bit ferocious over the sea 6. Finally picked up something by Minkpink and I love it! Thank god there isn't an Urban Outfitters in Norwich or I'd be homeless (but looking fine) 7. Spanish beer to go with tapas 8. Enjoying the last of the sun in the gardens 9. Fish and chips at Betty La La's 10. The wonderful view from my bedroom window 11. Enjoying the sun with my brother in this cute little sunspot 12. My dad lives on the very top flat!

(And I've got Moranthology ready to go!)
This week I've spent in Brighton. But man I am tired and unproductive. I've eaten too much, exercised too little, dabbled around with drinking my body into oblivion and spent a lot of time in the sun with a coffee and a book. It's been fabulous, but I am not built for this kind of lifestyle, one hangover too far and I'll vow to lead a life in the country, knitting and drinking tea and buying candles (Although that isn't a world away from what I'm like normally, just with more gin).

Brighton Diary: part two

Hello lovely people. I've been doing all sorts in Brighton since my last diary, taking lots of photos, eating to my heart's content and maybe some over-drinking in there (oops). I know that most of the photographs I take are of food and drink, but hey, they really are the best pleasures in life (sorry people I go out to dinner with). I also made a sneaky trip to Urban Outfitters (WE DON'T HAVE ONE IN NORWICH DON'T JUDGE ME!?) and found two MinkPink items in the sale, including the dress (up there ^) which I am supremely chuffed about because I would never normally be able to afford their stuff and it's my favourittttte. Oh, and I also bought Caitlin Moran's How To Be a Woman. Why have I not read this before I asked myself? It's fantastically hilarious and serious and I'm very sad that I finished it a day later, everybody must buy!! 
Till next time darlings!
