Sunny Brighton

katie'shenThe main reason I was in Brighton a few weekends ago was to celebrate one of my oldest friend's hen do. We needn't have worried about the weather that weekend because despite it looking a little gloomy when we first arrived, the following morning, we were greeted with bright blue skies and a beautiful sea view from our apartment. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and see little white sails bobbing up and down in the distance and Brighton Pier just a stones throw away. Oh how envious I am to those of you that live near the sea! 
We started the day with some awesome personalised hot cross buns and then we skipped on over to the Brighton Wheel where we had some pretty stunning views of Brighton. I was pretty pleased that I had brought my DSLR along for the ride, look at the views!
From the wheel, we spotted Crazy Golf and decided that we had to add that to our activities for the day. I started off well and momentarily thought my Golf-playing dad would be proud of me, until I rapidly started going downhill. I even managed to make the golf ball jump over bridges, co-ordination not so good over here that's for sure!

BeachandfishandchipsAfter some fish and chips on the beach (of course!) we headed on over to a crafty afternoon where we decorated teapots. Champagne, Tea and cake were all involved of course - how very British!
The evening involved a lovely meal, a trip to Brighton Pier where we found warmth in the Arcade. Arcades make me feel like a small child again (memories of my determined dad spending £'s on the grabber machines winning soft toys for me and my sisters!) and it's perhaps the only time where I am excited about a purse full of 2p's. My personal favourite is ALWAYS the air hockey.
Of course, it wouldn't be a hen party without a night out and we danced away the rest of the night and into the morning at a club on the seafront. It really was a fantastic weekend and now I can't wait until the wedding on Saturday, Ahh!

  24. Winnie, Brighton looked so stunning through your Instagram photos and now on your blog! It looks almost surreal with the pastel shades and bright sunlight. So happy you're celebrating with friends- I just had my cousin's bridal shower last night and it thunderstormed so I had to bring in all the bunting back inside T-T
