Brighton Rocks

This weekend I popped to Brighton for a couple of days. I hadn't been for years but it's such a great place I knew I would get inspired. I was going to see my lovely friend Ally who was having a jewellery party (like I need any more!) Lovett & Co vintage inspired jewellery and very nice it is too. What's so lovely is that there are collections from several different eras and plenty of gorgeous Mad Men styled jewels. oooh and there's loads of sparkle too, great for magpies like me.

I took the boyfriend to Brighton for company, plus it's nicer to share experiences and I get bored of my company after a while!! We stayed at a fab boutique hotel close to the sea Hotel Pelirocco. We had the Olivia room which was boudoir style & right up my street. The staff were super lovely & the cocktails are very good indeed.

The room was decorated with cute frilly knickers on bottom mannequins on the walls, old fashioned irons & a Singer sewing machine as accessories.

Above are the vintage light fittings made by Emerald Faerie which were embellished with antique crystals from chandeliers and old buckles & brooch bits & bobs. I thought they were great.

We went to so many fabulous and unique shops, ate far too much good food and so much booze I think I might have to detox this week. We had yummy fish & chips with a glass of champagne - it seemed a funny combination, so why not!
We had breakfast in bed with bloody Mary's too. It was great fun and nice to have time off from work and de-stress.
Another great place was a tea rooms called Metro Deco. We didn't make it for afternoon tea sadly but we did still manage to soak up the Art Deco atmosphere whilst having some breakfast. Anyway we were blessed with sunshine so it made the trip even better.
It was a lovely lazy time and done on a budget too.

I hope you all had a sunshine filled weekend too with some relaxation. xx
