The joys of indecisiveness & Gnocchi

Today, I thought I’d take a little break from all of the reviews I’ve been doing lately. There have been a lot, I know! (I can’t help it though, Brighton has so many amazing places that I just want to rave about non-stop! It’s probably a good thing I don’t live there.. I’ve be broke, over-weight from eating so many wonderful things.. but very happy!)

The joys of summer :)

Icecream & Phummus

This may be an alien notion to some, but I’m actually not the biggest fan of ice cream. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I do like the stuff. But I generally find it’s a bit too rich for me. One or two bites and I’m done! Now sorbet on the other hand, I rather love.
Light, fruity and refreshing, what’s not to like? My favourite simple-sorbet is simply freeze raspberries and sliced peaches, and then blend them together.

Simple, sweet, and good for you too!
On my recent trip to Brighton, when I asked around for places I had to visit, one place which popped up was Boho Gelato, where we were told we could get some really nice vegan sorbets…

Paskins

When I was planning my partners trip away, I did a lot of research into places to stay. My first thought was to find a nice hostel. I’ve stayed in a few during various trips, and most of them have been quite nice (only one that I didn’t like, but I shan’t go into details there!). The only trouble with hostels though, is quite often you have to share your room with strangers. For a research trip to London for a uni project, that’s not too bad. But for a birthday special treat? Not so nice!
So I contacted the Lovely Jo Jo of Vegan in Brighton to ask her if she had any suggestions of veggie-friendly B&B’s or Hotels, and she suggested I look into a place called Paskins!

Paskins!

Vegan Fortune cookies!

Tonight, I was going to do a review of the B&B I stayed at in Brighton last weekend, Paskins. But then I remembered that I have a little recipe idea to post alongside it, so Paskins will have to wait until tomorrow!

Instead, I’m going to do a quickie post about a new product I recently found! You’ll probably only be able to get it if, like me, you live in the UK. And if you’re close to a Lidls! But take a look at.. Continue reading

Mystery trip to Brighton & Moshimo!

Well, I’m back from my whirlwind of a weekend away! We both had such a lovely time, and of course it went too fast, but it really was perfect 🙂
My Friday started at about 8am (on less than 6 hours sleep..) decorating and packing items to post! (I have a little art business, which I’ll tell more about another day!) I think I managed to squeeze in a morning and afternoon’s work before 10am! Our train was booked for 2.30, and a taxi to take us to the station at 1.50, so it was all a bit of a mad rush!
I’d persuaded Lee to leave work early that day, and he knew we were going somewhere.. but had no idea where! Hearing his guesses of where he thought we were heading was great fun (Cornwall and the Mumbles (South Wales) were his ideas!) Once he noticed we were on a train heading towards London, his guesses went to Glastonbury.. Camden.. and after a long bought of puzzlement (and the help of google maps) he finally got it right… Brighton! 😀
The train journey was so nice 🙂 I packed a picnic..
