A Trip to Brighton | My Day Diary

Hello my lovelies! How are you all on this beautiful, sunny day?
Today I have a bit of a different post, something I haven't done before...
my first day diary post.

Last week I went on a trip to Brighton with my mum and younger brother (oh, joy) and thought I would show you what we got up to (and when I say we, I mean me and my mum because my brother spent the whole day trying to catch pokemon) so enjoy!
*Disclaimer: I am deeply apologetic for the quality of these photo's... I forgot my camera battery and had to take them on my phone*

This was my OOTD. It was rather hot so I wore an outfit that was very light and breezy:
Top : New Look
Shorts : New Look
Cardigan : Hollister
Shoes : Converse
Bag : Jack Wills

First of all we decided to walk down all the lovely lanes and do a little bit of shopping and window browsing. They felt almost like secret passages, the lanes are definitely my favourite part of Brighton!

As we continued through the lanes we found this lovely homeware shop called 'England at Home', it was beautiful! Very vintage and very me! I'd never seen this shop before then so I was rather excited to make a new homeware shop discovery because being a girl who is obsessed with homeware, I'm always looking for new shops!

Is it just me or does this lane remind you slightly of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter?

We then had a quick stop at costa to cool down (because it was 24 flipping' degrees celsius, not that i'm complaining) before carrying on exploring the wonders of Brighton. I had a caramel frappe as per usual, my brother had the peach lemonade which I should have got because it was absolutely delicious and my mum had an iced mocha.

We then carried on through the lanes and came across this rather cute cafe, I can't quite remember the name. We didn't have time to go in but the next time I go to Brighton I will definitely pop into this cafe for an ice cream!

After walking through the lanes for a long while, we came across some bigger brand names and decided to do a little bit of shopping... whoops!
We first went to M.A.C and I didn't pick anything up this time but I did love browsing through the lipsticks which could be mistaken for a rainbow with the amount of colour choices they have.
Next was Ted Baker and I bought a gorgeous shirt; collared of course. I will put a full photo of the shirt up on my instagram, so make sure you are following that.
Then we went to Lush and I picked up the Mask of Magnanimity face mask as I have been breaking out a lot recently and acne has been rather bad and I was recommended to try this so if you would like a review just let me know!
Finally we went to Jack Wills just for a quick browse so I didn't pick anything up but there were lots of lovely pieces that I might pick up soon... haha!

We then decided to roam around the famous Brighton Pier! It reminded me so much of San Francisco. And may I just say the view of the sea from the pier was beautiful!

And lastly to finish of the wonderful day out in the beautiful Brighton, we decided to have a walk along the pebbly beach.

Overall, I really did like Brighton and would love to go back for a longer visit. I especially loved the little lanes and the independent cafes and shops!

I really hope you enjoyed this post, I know it was VERY long so I hope it didn't bore you too much! Let me know what you thought of it!
See you very soon!
