Beautiful film by an incredibly young (and very patient!) local photographer. Shot as a series of stills edited down from over 45,000, the finished article perfectly captures why Brightonians are so fiercely proud of their hometown. Makes me feel homesick and humbled that I am from such a place!
Woke up this morning feeling very relaxed after a lovely Saturday strolling around Covent Garden and settling in for the evening with a big bowl of chocolate covered coffee beans and a full sky + box.
I have to say it is also a great feeling to be up early on Sunday sans hangover (ugh) which I have to admit I have been guilty of a few times this month, eek.
After an insanely buy few weeks, and what promises to be a few more to come, I have been perusing some favourite blogs and websites for Christmas gift ideas and inspirations for what to do during any moments of down-time.
- Newly discovered HK - based blog a pair and a spare puts some fantastic DIY ideas into motion, including making your own vegetable dyes, updating your SS11 maxi or midi into a fishtail skirt and a quick and easy pom pom headband
- How to perfect fishtail braids and french plaits with the help of The Beauty Department and the lovely Lauren Conrad
Now to wrap up for a wander down Portobello and if I’m lucky, a Lisboa bakery custard tart, perfect!

I can’t quite believe that it’s taken me so long to sign up for a Pinterest account! I’d heard it being mentioned on blogs but hadn’t actually known of anyone that had used it before, and in my first day using it, I’m finding it to be incredibly simple to use and a lot of fun!
For anyone that (like I was) is unsure of what it is, it does exactly what it says on the tin and simply allows you to ‘pin’ images and points of interest on the web, whilst saving the URL and making a kind of virtual mood board.
I really love similar features to this on sites such as Bloglovin’ which enables you to follow all your frequently visited blogs, giving a news feed of blog posts and then allowing you to ‘like’ posts, saving them for later to refer back to. Pinterest is ultimately a slicker and more discernible way of doing this, as well as quickly building a very satisfying page full of visual goodness.
I’m sure this post is incredibly behind the times but for someone who has spent years filling notebooks with scribbled web addresses I am so glad I finally found out what it was all about!
Love their amazing shoot featuring uber curvy and feminine models, it’s about time more magazines followed suit!
