I know I haven't posted all the time recently as my boyfriend and I booked a two night trip to Brighton. It's not far from us, but it's a lovely place to get away from day-to-day life. We stayed at The Kings Hotel and honestly, it was lovely. We went up on the 14th by car (my dad drove us then took us back, as it was cheaper to pay for petrol then to get a train) and came back on the 16th.

So on the first day we dropped our bags at the hotel then got some brunch on the beach. The heat is extraordinary for England and it was so lucky for it to be such good weather when we went away. After this we did a quick shopping trip (which I will be doing a haul for soon) but only quickly as it was too hot to shop. Then we took a stroll on the pier. Rob treated me to dinner at Cafe Rouge on the first night which was gorgeous. We both ordered the duck confit which was amazing and then for dessert I had a chocolate ganache and Rob had the cheeseboard! It was so nice and then we took a walk on the beach to the hotel.

So on our last day we woke up and headed over to JB's diner. We both had pancakes and were they good? No they were amazing! We were pretty relaxed on our last day and just wanted to enjoy the time together away from everything. We went to the cinema and watched Monsters University and it did not disappoint in the slightest! After we took a walk and had some lunch (another meal deal I think) and then we came a cross an artist who was offering these manga like illustrations (the last square image). We bought one as we though it was something fun and different from a painting and I am so pleased with how it came out! Finally we got an ice cream and headed home, hopefully I will be able to take more weekends/holidays away as I really enjoyed this as a kind of escape.
