A Trip To Brighton

A little bit of a different post and I'm getting all lifestylin' up in here! Beauty is taking a step back (don't worry though, not for good!) and I'm talking a little trip I took to Brighton as I just need to tell you about the places I visited and my time there. 

I'm a London girl at heart. Ever since I moved here for Uni, it's just got me and I honestly couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I just couldn't. It's got everything I need. But after taking a trip to Brighton, I just get it. I get why everyone loves it so much. Now I'm not saying I love it more than London, but it's just got a little bit of somethin' somethin' that makes it so special. 

I stayed for two nights in the Brighton Central Travelodge* and really wasn't expecting that much. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was really pleasantly surprised. The room was actually nice, and I don't mean that in a bad way, I just was expecting the worst, you know? They've actually just installed a tonne of new bespoke king size dreamer beds to celebrate their campaign to get Britain up and go and oh my god was the bed comfy! I literally didn't want to leave and that's not just because I'm not a morning person... 

After finally leaving that uber comfy bed, I headed out to experience a little bit of Brighton and as you can see I took a little obligatory trip to the pier but a pier's a pier and it's the Pumpkin Spiced Chai Latte from the Bluebird Tea Co. that I just have to tell you about. It's everything you could need in a tea. Creamy, sweet with a little spice and with 40 calories a cup. I don't know, just go and try it. It's my obsession and I just wish I could pick one up daily. I did actually pick up some of the tea to make at home, but I haven't got round to getting the tea strainer and milk frother that I need to make that Pumpkin Chai goodness. But I will. If you do anything while you're in Brighton, go here, literally I can't go on about it enough!

For food, I went to Kokoro for lunch. A quick pop-in-and-out Japanese job but the food was amazing and so cheap! For Dinner, I went to La Choza. Amazing Mexican street food. Imagine Wahaca, but better. Oh yeah, I said it. I went for the Burrito Bowl with the fish and the Chipotle salsa and of course guac and tortilla chips on the side and oh boy. You literally just need to go... Oh, and they're Tequila Sunrise's are great, of course.

I fell in love with Brighton a little while I was there, and that's not just because of the Pumpkin Chai, so I can imagine it'll be seeing me soon. 

Where do you love to go in Brighton?
