Anyway on Saturday Claire and I had our first day out in a while and went off to Brighton. Apparently half the country had the same idea as it was more crowded there than i've ever seen it (was our fault though, we went on the last saturday of the easter holidays which also happened to be one of the sunniest days of the year so far :P We are dumb).
Go through the jump if you want to see some pictures :)
Claire likes taking lots of pictures before we go. I like to do stupid poses like so:
Yeah i'm stupid.
And here is Claire looking gorgeous as usual:
We went into this amazing shop of antiques and oddities and there was this amazing mirror Claire loved:
They also had a load of stunning posters (magicians mainly, which is a big obsession of mine), prints (pictures of antique dentistry, antique pornography etc), great furniture and other amazing things like weird old puppets, taxidermies and prosthetic limbs. I could have spent so much money in there :P
Then we went shopping for a while and then headed to the beach where we had a nice lounge in the sun.
And then we went to one of my favourite places in Brighton, the Mock Turtle, which is a briliant old fashioned tea room. It reminds me of Madame Puddifoot's from Harry Potter. It's stuffed with different tables and chairs and has brilliant tacky wallpaper with paintings and decorative china and things shoved all over. They sell lovely old fashioned cream teas and are famous for their Welsh Rarebit (which Claire had). I always have their meringue which is huge and utterly delicious and we both had hot chocolate with cream. Bye bye diet!
After this we didn't take anymore photos. We went shopping and got delicious ice cream and milkshake and sat on the beach a while longer and went too the old Penny Arcade (which i adore) then when it got to be time for dinner we just went to Wetherspoons for a cheap veggie burger, then we headed home.
It was a great day of eating, drinking and relaxing and we both were so happy just to be out and about and having a nice time away from our day to day responsibilites :)
I did a little bit of retail therapy (though no makeup!) and here is my haul:
I bought a heart shaped bucket and mirror and some Moomin storage boxes
Then some jewellery. This was all from from a shop called 'Pussey Home Boutique'which was having a big sale. The two necklaces on either end are Tatty Devine and were cheaper than half price! I also got a Moomins keyring and badge (i'm going to make the Hattifatteners keyring into a necklace and earring set).
I also got some pretty fabric and a lot of sweets, but they've gone now :P
