The Brighton Haul

I didn't just come to Brighton for the lovely seaside and a yummy stack of pancakes at Café Coho. I also came to do a bit of shopping! I absolutely fell in love with The Lanes. These cute streets are full of small independent shops with quirky items. And also: cake. Lots of cake. While I was walking through those small alleys I saw so many bakeries and cute tea shops. If I lived in Brighton you would find me in one of those places sipping tea and eating cake every single weekend!

Now since I love tea so much I had to pop in Bluebird Tea Company. I remember this shop making an appearance in Zoe's vlog and had to see what it was all about. In the end I left with two different kinds of tea: Gingerbread Chai and Nearly Nirvana. The woman that worked there was so lovely and clearly even more obsessed with tea than I am. I can't wait for the autumn weather so that I can snuggle up on the couch with a cup of tea and my favourite film.

As I walked up the road to the train station I also spotted a Boots. Now don't get me wrong, there are enough Boots stores in London, but it has happened way to many times that an item was sold out everywhere. I picked up the Super Facialist Cleansing Oil, that I also bought in January and one out of four Collection Lasting Perfection concealers (yes I picked up three more in London *insert my favourite monkey emoji here*). I also had my eyes out for a NYX counter. We have NYX here too -we are actually getting a big NYX store in a couple of months- but the items that they sell now are not the things I have on my wish list. I was happy to pop the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm and the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Vintage in my shopping basket. I will put a full review of these babies on the blog soon!

I didn't buy a lot, but for me it was all about the Brighton experience. Sitting in Café Coho and watching all the people walk by, strolling through all those small alleys and letting that sea breeze through my hair. My visit to Brighton was definitely not the last and I hope I will be back next January to explore more of this gorgeous city!

Have you ever been to Brighton? What is your favourite thing about the city?
