Brighton on the Beach

If you follow me on Instagram or twitter you will probably have seen me majorly making up for my social media absence of late on Friday night and Saturday morning! If not then you missed this delight: I was super lucky to have been invited to an amazing night and day thanks to OnThe Beach. Along with thirteen or so…

#LightsCameraCurrys in Brighton

Two weeks ago (though it seems like a lot longer!) I spent a gloriously sunny day in a basement, learning all about how to use my DSLR off ‘auto’ mode.

The Tea Times: Bluebird Tea Mixology

Last night I spent an amazingly fun evening at Bluebird Tea co in Brighton on Gardner street (I used to live on the same street actually!) with lots of lovely people, drinking lots of even lovelier tea.

We learnt that this summer red tones will…

Athena’s Christening

We had a private service by the Vicar that married us a year to the day before. After that we held the reception (is it called a reception if it’s not a wedding?) at The Grand (you can see the lovely we room we stayed in in this post) I was far too busy catching up with everyone to take…

Review: Aveda facial at Shine

I’ve only ever had one facial before so when I was asked if I’d like to review the new Dual Exfoliation Power Peel Treatment from Aveda at Shine I jumped at the chance, the salon is in the heart of the North Laines tucked away in a really great location a 5 minute walk from the train station.
