Down on Ship Street in Brighton there used be a place called The Smugglers; a sports pub with a nightclub above, aptly named The Loft, and 10 Below, a slightly smaller club below the main pub.
It closed down in 2015 and has now been reborn as The Walrus. I was invited to their VIP lunch to check out the new venue and sample some of the menu. Naturally, I took J with me 🙂
To be honest, this is a bit of a filler post as I’ve really not been feeling well for the last couple of weeks. I haven’t really been able to my shit together properly with being organised, getting words written and photos taken and edited 🙁 So I thought instead of not posting at all, it’d be nice for you all to get to know me a little bit better 🙂
These are quite often the kinds of posts I love the most 😀 So here are 20 little random little facts about me; some you might know already, some you might not!
Recently the old Bowlplex down at Brighton Marina underwent a bit of a transformation and has now become a shiny new Hollywood Bowl. Last Thursday they had a VIP launch night so Áine and I headed down for an evening of bowling, fun and food.
I’ve been pretty quiet on social media this past week, mostly because I’ve been enjoying some well-deserved down time!
I always find the period in between Christmas and New Year weird because I always lose track of days and dates!! So what exactly did I get up to?
Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
When the Co-op sent me an email asking if I’d like to get involved with their #ReverseAdvent campaign, I signed up straight away and a few days later, I received a box and a £5 Co-op voucher to help me get started.
I was really looking forward to the Salon Success Jingle & Mingle event which was held a couple of weeks ago at Hotel Du Vin, Brighton. Loads of my blogger friends were going, I had the perfect outfit and makeup all sorted and there was going to be some amazing food!!
Last Thursday evening I went to the Thomas Sabo event* with Charlie, Katie and Tania. It was held in TH Baker in Churchill Square, Brighton.
Thomas Sabo, which sells jewellery, watches and fragrances, have just brought out their new A/W collection and they invited us to have a look.
This Sleek palette post has been sitting in my drafts for absolutely ages, mostly because I wanted to take some photos which would do absolute justice to it but I wasn’t happy with any of the photos I took; they just didn’t look right. Does anyone else ever have that problem?
Cin Cin* (pronounced chin chin), a new Brighton restaurant, is an absolute gem nestled in the heart of North Laine. (13-16 Vine Street to be more precise!)
Starting out four years ago as a mobile food van, Cin Cin was the vision of David, who wanted to bring an authentic Italian taste to Brighton. He then brought Fabrizio and Jamie on board to open up the Cin Cin restaruant and boy, did they deliver!
