Today I have a pleasure of sharing my weekend away with you all ! We traveled to Brighton for few days and although the choice of the destination was quite an unusual one, I have no regrets.
Brighton is full of contrasts and as it is a seaside town, it has a lot features typical for that. I loved the old buildings and lots of tiny side streets along with the promenade and variety of cafes and bars. On the other hand, I have seen a lot of poverty and homelessness. First impressions are not always the right ones so I will let you decide for yourself !
Enjoy my vlog and if you liked it, check out my channel for more fashion, travel and beauty related content.
Let me know you thoughts as well as any recommendations and suggestions for more gateways ?
Thank you very much for stopping by.
I always look forward to reflecting on what have happened in the last 30 days. I know that I have already mentioned this but it is so eye-opening process that helps me to prioritize and gives me the sense of achievement.
My professional life has been a centre of attention in October and whether right or wrong my priority on most days. Work-life balance is something that I struggle with and may need to address it in the near future.
As for my private life, the main highlight of the month would have to be our trip to Brighton. As my husband told me, it was a very original choice of destination but no regrets there… Seeing new places, taking everything in and memorizing is a real journey that I do not want to end.
The blog post you liked the most in October was beauty-related and can be found here if you missed it. The one you liked the least was a fairly recent style-related one, well-worth checking out in my opinion (available here).
I had a few fashion favourites lately, mostly clothing ones. To name just one or two, this coat from Zara is an absolute dream and the quality of the fabric is second to none. It reminds me of high-end giants coats like Joseph or MaxMara. Zara can be a difficult place to shop as the quality vary from item to item. That is why, I like to visit the store and get the feel of the item before buying anything.
Another piece of clothing I have been wearing non-stop since I got it, is this silk shirt from & Other Stories. The fabric is very delicate, more spring appropriate but the way this shirt makes me feel is supper cosy and comfortable. It is a trusty staple that will stay in my closet for a very long time !

Finally, I decided to develop my YouTube channel further and as a result I will try to publish at least one video a week. Creating videos is definitely more demanding than anything else I have tried before but the more I do it, the more pleasure and satisfaction I get out of it.
Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to hear from you very soon !!
What was your October like ?
I love to surprise my nearest and dearest with gifts and trips like this gateway which was a surprise to my husband. We have never been to Brighton and although initially, I have something different planned, I think that all in all it was a good choice.
If you follow my blog for a while, you will know that traveling is something that keeps me going. I love the idea of discovering new places and documenting it through my pictures, fashion diaries and most importantly memories.
This trip to Brighton ended up as surprise not only to husband but also myself. The city itself is so much different to what I expected. It has a strong bohemian vibe with huge diversity in its population and although architecture stunning, I thought it will be different…
As for the outfit of the day, I decided to mix trendy and casual and maybe show you slightly more relaxed me. You may remember this shirt from some time ago (here), this time styled with my favourite leather jacket and a pair of sneaker I just cannot stop wearing. The jumper I wore under the jacket is an excellent example of layering piece that will keep you comfortable yet put together and warm at the same time.
So that is what I wore Sunday (this time by the seaside) !!
Jacket AllSaints (similar)
Skirt & Other Stories
Sneakers Golden Goose
Hope you have enjoyed that trip to Brighton !!
Keep warm and stay tuned for the next post…
