Since arriving in Brighton I have been pretty much wearing my hair in this style (or something similar) every day! So fuss free and easy!
Now I know what you may have been wondering, sure – move to Brighton, but what about a job?
Well very fortunately I found that I landed on my feet quite quickly there! I am currently working in the beautiful ‘Blackbird Tea Rooms‘ near Brightons South Lanes.
I thought I would take a couple of snaps to show you all just how lovely this charming establishment is…
Owned by two Antique and Vintage enthusiasts with years of experience in running sales and fairs of the ‘old-fashioned’ variety, the walls of the tea room make for very interesting viewing. I love this shelving unit of old food and tea tins…
The heavenly (dribble) cakes which are made fresh on the premises by our very talented Alberto!
I’m slowly working my way through the lot (so far the Bakewell Tart and Banana Passion Cake have been favourites!)
The more I explore whilst working, the more amazed I am to find that practically everything is antique! Right down to the light switches or tea spoons!
The table dressings are all wonderful, delicate hand-made lace affairs, with fresh flowers held in jam jars or drinking glasses….
Joshua and I getting stuck in to the Banana Passion Cake….Blimey that’s good cake!
Debating another slice perhaps?
And because it’s my favourite, I had to share this framed photo with you! I just love the look on the woman in the foregrounds face, and the girl with the batwing sleeves in the background. Also the couple in the middle about to have a passionate kiss…So much goodness in one photo!
