BRIGHTON || OUT AND ABOUT


Having been to Cambridge, Kent, Bath, Castlebury and of course London amongst a few other towns in England; I think I have been to quite a variety of places in the UK for someone who wasn’t born here. However, I always wanted to visit Brighton and I finally got to go recently, thanks to the babe that Kate is for getting me train tickets for my birthday. 

Brighton was even more beautiful than I thought, it was snowing the whole day and it was rather empty - most people stay at home when it’s 0 degrees outside. We arrived at about 11AM and went straight to the beach where we took many many photos and made our way to the famous Brighton Pier, where even more photos were taken. 


We had lunch at an incredible restaurant called The New Club - I had their Clean Burger whilst she had their Dirty Burger. They were both amazing, I am not exaggerating when I say it was easily one of the best burgers I have ever had. We also ordered a side of Mac’n’Cheese to share because why not. It was good but a bit too spicy for me, and Bill’s Mac’n’Cheese will always have a special place in my heart anyways. We were starving so I didn't manage to take a photo, I deeply apologise but hey at least I won't make you hungry! 

We then walked around The Lanes for a bit, I loved the narrow and quirky streets. There were so any cute shops that sold the most beautiful (and overpriced) home decor, it was hard not to buy anything! After that we visited the Royal Pavilion which reminded me to the Taj Mahal, it was built a palace for King George IV, I can’t even imagine what it would be like to live there.

By then it was about 5pm so after checking out a few shops and stopping each other from spending all of our non-existent money, we headed back to London. To finish off the day right we went to Homelike, which I’ve been told by many different people that they have the best pizza in London, so obviously I had to try it. I can confirm the pizza was indeed amazing and I would advice going there with one or two friends and sharing a pizza, because they are MASSIVE. 

Brighton was everything I expected and more, even with the rather bad weather I loved the town and I definitley want to go back in summer when it’s not snowing and freezing!

BOOKS I CAN'T WAIT TO READ




Reading is one of my favourite hobbies - whether it is blog posts, books, magazines, etc. Anything that has any content I am remotely interested in, I will read it. Recently I have been feeling a bit ( a lot) unmotivated and have been rather unproductive. So I decided to get a few books to encourage me to kick some ass. 

I got two new books: How To Murder Your Life by Cat Marnell and Inside Vogue: A Diary of my 100th Year by Alexandra Schulman. The former one I got because of Caroline Calloway - I lover her writing and her pieces are honestly a work of art so I am happy to read anything she recommends. The other one I got it because, well, because Alexandra Schulman is who I aspire to be in life so I would obviously read anything she wrote.

I also want to re-read a book I started several months ago but I never finished, that is #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. It is a very empowering book, specially if you are a young women. But regardless of your age or gender, I'd totally recommend this book. It's also incredibly interesting to see how she built such an empire from scratch. 


I haven't started reading How To Murder Your life yet but it sounds amazing. The book is a memoir of a girl living in New York working as a beauty editor at a Conde Nast magazine, someone who seems to have a pretty much perfect life. But what lies beneath the surface is someone with bulimia and a young women who is addicted to drugs and alcohol. The narrative style is supposed to be brutally honest, so I am very excited to read this one.

As I previously mentioned, Alexandra Schulman is someone who I very much admire. I mean, being the editor of British Vogue is not something anyone gets to do for a living. The book is written in a diary style, she explains what she does on pretty much a daily basis and let me tell you, it is anything but mundane activities. Unless your everyday life includes going for breakfast with Stella McCartney in Notting Hill, you'll probably find this book fascinating and your jaw will drop multiple times. 

I am ridiculously excited to read all of these books and I'll make sure to do a review on these once I finish them!

10 THINGS THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE AN ADULT



Early twenties are a bit of a weird phase, we are meant to be adults but most of us feel more like children. In spite of moving out of my parents' house a few years ago and living in a whole different country away from all my family, I rarely ever feel like a grown up; let alone an adult who has their shit together. 

These past couple of months, however, I feel like I have grown up a lot. I have realised that sometimes when I do certain things I stop for a second and congratulate myself for giving off the impression of knowing what I am doing. 

"Congrats, you don't behave like a teenager anymore"

It's little mundane actions that I have started doing, things that I would imagine all these successful badass businesswomen doing. Here are ten of them.

  • Willingly waking up before 7am
  • Actually using my planner every day
  • Using mouthwash, daily
  • Doing laundry every weekend and separating whites and colours
  • Having a skincare routine and following it
  • Buying real food and vegetables instead of ready meals or take out
  • Keeping track of my finances
  • Remembering to pay bills
  • Meeting friends for a coffee
  • Having a go-to smoothie recipe
  • Bonus one: Having a Starbucks gold card, because every self-respected women definitely has one...

THE BEST PLACE TO BUY JEWELLERY ONLINE

Every girl has a sweet spot for jewellery, there is something about pretty earrings, necklaces and bracelets

that make us happy and they are also an essential part of any outfit. However, jewellery is one of those things that I often overlook and kind of 'forget' to buy. For example, when planning an outfit I'll think of the dress, heels, hair, make-up, even nail polish colour! But I'll rarely think of what jewellery to wear it with until I've got the outfit on. Not only that, but I really don't like going jewellery shopping. I find it too tedious and hard, not too mention it is also rather expensive. 

I recently came across easewholesale.com*, which is a wholesale fashion jewellery store. They have all kind of jewellery imaginable as well as a wide variety of styles so there is something for everyone. To make it even better, their prices are not outrageous - who wants to pay $30 for one necklace? Certainly not me.


I personally love their bangles as bracelets are my favourite accessories anyway. I have really been into simple and dainty bangles, they add a fancier touch to the outfit but they're not overwhelming, making them perfect for every day wear. I have specially been loving silver and rose gold accessories, as I find that if it's gold it can look cheap unless it's from a high-end store.

Something else I love from this website is their collection of rings, I am constantly buying new rings because I keep loosing them (I'm trying to get better at this...). As with bracelets, I always go for rather simple silver or rose gold rings, I like to wear loads of them at the same time - it looks so cool and edgy!

Overall I really love this website and it is definitley one of my go to places to get accesories from. I know that sometimes wholesale jewellery from china can be a bit dodgy and not very trustworthy, but everything from easewholesale.com does really look nice and not cheap at all!
