Saturday was pretty awesome to be honest; I met up with Tania, one of my lovely blogger friends and we hung out all afternoon. We popped into Boots and I resisted buying the new Maybelline contour stick and then went up to Debenhams because her friend heard a rumour that there was a Too Faced counter. The rumours were absolutely true and we met such a lovely lady who colour matched me for their foundation (but it was out of stock, boooo) and let us smell the Peach palette!! It really does smell like peaches 😀
We then popped down to 114 Church St, the pop up event space to meet Chloe. She owns CloClothes and was there as part of The Maker Club. All the clothing is handmade by her and just looks incredible.
Due to J’s chronic fatigue, we don’t often indulge in date nights any more, but when Señor Buddha got in touch and asked if we wanted to sample their menu, we dressed up and headed over; J wore a smart shirt and did his hair and I wore a dress!
Whenever my parents or friends come to visit me in Brighton, my lack of knowledge on good places to eat is pretty shocking. I’ve actually taken someone to McDonald’s on Western Road before because I’m that bad at knowing where to eat! If you’ve ever been there, you’ll understand 😀
Then the lovely folks at Wriggle got in touch and now I have a handy website and app which shows me deals from local eateries; whether it’s a café down a side street I’ve never heard of before or the best street food that everyone’s been raving about.
When Sophie contacted West Sussex Bloggers on Facebook asking for some foodie bloggers to come to an evening at Bella Italia* to try out their new menu, I immediately messaged back and said I was a lifestyle blogger and did that count? It turns out it totally did and so on Monday night, I took my first foray into the world of Yelp events. What the hell is a Yelp event, I hear you ask? Yelp events are a great way to meet new people and try out new places, all they ask is that you leave a review on their site!
