6 January 2015


I spent new years in Brighton with some University friends, it was so lovely to get away from London for a few days, the days were filled with wintery strolls, drinking Chai Lattes and beating people are board games. I have always had a love affair with this beautiful seaside town and when a few friends of mine who live down in Brighton invited me and Kelly down for a few days. 

I haven't seen certain friends for nearly five years so you can imagine it was great fun. 
For new years we played board games and had champagne while dancing around the back garden with sparklers.  We wandered down the Laines on New Years day hunting down the best place for brunch. We discovered the lovely Wai Kika Moo Kau yummiest breakfast and Chai Latte.

Brighton has some really lovely little shops, which i loved snapping. For me its all about the everyday, capturing lovely moments with friends, savoring the last of the Christmas cheer. The weather was wintery as expected as we walked along the seafront which was great to blow the cobwebs out, I should of remembered more layers. How I have missed a stormy sea. We stumbled across a really lovely little independent art store called Castor and Pollux where I bought my new 2015 Journal.

I always feel so much happier and refreshed once I've escaped the city for a little while, what did you get upto over the New Years?
