From The Archive: 2011

From starting university, to making the decision to leave (and winning my first blog award) - the year of 2011 was a big one for me- and I finally moved back to London to intern and dedicate a little more time to the blog...

Europe Travel

Where Olivia Went: Brighton

So, I’m back from my two day mini break to Brighton with Joe! We had a really lovely time, bar the weather which was a little apocalyptic yesterday (slight exaggeration, but it was not pleasant!) Unfortunately because of this I didn’t manage to take as pictures as I’d have liked, but I’ll pop in some anyway for good measure.
Anyway, we stayed in an absolutely gorgeous Bed & Breakfast, called Snooze. About a 15 minute walk from the town centre, and in the middle of Kemp Town and it’s shops, it was a really cosy place, with THE most awesome interior décor, with each room set to a different theme, and always something to look at!
Tasty bed time treats!

The breakfast room and the awesome wall art!

We managed to look around The Lanes and the North Laine, and wander around the go-to vintage shops (Dirty Harry’s, To be worn again, Snooper’s Paradise, Wolf & Gypsy, Beyond Retro etc) whilst picking up a cookies ‘n’ cream cupcake, from my all time favourite cupcake shop ‘The Angel Food Bakery‘. We also ate in Jamie’s Italian, which was gorgeous, I left feeling very spoilt and full (with an ever so garlicy breath mmmm)!

Due to the horrendous weather, as in not been able to walk along the sea-front due to the wind weather, we went to see One Day, after wanting to see it since it came out! Two words: emotional wreck. It was such a lovely/sad film, and contrary to what some have said I really loved Anne Hathaway’s performance, and fell slightly in love with Jim Sturgess- a must see, providing you bring the tissues. We also curled up in the room and watched ‘This is Spinal Tap’ which provided many lolz indeed!

Anyway, I hope you’ve all had a lovely few days. Back to blogging as normal! I also have two MORE giveaways in the pipelines (I can’t believe it either) but hope to spread them out a little so it doesn’t get too much! Also, don’t forget to enter my current giveaway for a cracking ‘tash necklace!
