Pottering Around The Brighton Laines



Untitled
Hello Everyone!

The past couple of weeks have been a touch on the busy side for me. So I decided that this weekend I would have a little bit of me time and do the things that make me happy. So here's what I got up to on Saturday...

Now some of you may already know that my home town is Brighton and one of my favourite things to do there is have a potter about the Laines. For those of you that have never been to Brighton before it may be good to note that the North and South Laines are generally busy, but for a very good reason! They are filled with quaint shops that sell anything and everything, certainly not what you'd expect to see on the high street - which is one of the reasons why I love it so much!

The first stop on my wander was Bagel Man, it's one of my favourite places for a quick lunch. They have a great selection of yummy bagels and fillings, I went for the ATM (Avocado, tomato, mozzarella and basil) YUM

After I'd finished my bagel I decided to head over to one of my favourite vintage shops Snoopers Paradise. It's one of those stores where you need to roll your sleeves up and have a good old rummage! It's packed to the brim with second hand clothes, books, old pictures, crockery and loads more. Here are a few snaps I took to give you an idea.

I purchased two items I found, one of which is an old pencil tin which I'm planning to store either earrings or eyeliners in and the final thing I bought is an old compass which dates back to 1904! I thought this would look lovely on my night stand.

After a good hour or so of boiling my socks off in Snoopers Paradise I was in desperate need of some fresh air! So I moved on and decided to window shop and browse the pop up stands deeper into the North Laines. I spent a couple of hours looking at various books, cards, rugs, bags and a million other things before my feet starting aching and I decided to head to my car and drive home.

Apologies that this post wasn't beauty or fashion related but I thought it might be fun to try something different and give you an insight into what I like to get up to on a day off. If you're interested in seeing more of what I get up to when I'm not working here's a link to a vlog where I take you to London and deeper into the Brighton Laines -
