Spring has Sprung

I have been very dubious about using the term spring...with days so unseasonably mild that taking off your jumper was OK in February and the daffodil's showing their happy little heads over a month ago the words "Spring" and even "Summer" were starting to be thrown around. I was not having any of it, it was wrong to use these word so early in the year and we are all bound to be left with bitter cold disappointment when the late February snow comes and shatters all of our great expectations for an early Spring and even earlier Summer.
But now it is it's OK!
We've been really trying to make to most of every sunny day, and here in Brighton it's been beautiful!

The lovely Hove beach huts.

We found a great new walk just out of the City and there were lambs..too cute.

A very good friend of mine is getting married in a few weeks and her hen party is at the end of the month. She has decided on a WW2 theme, which I think is fantastic! We are having some work done on the house at the moment so every penny counts, so this meant that I had to get my creative juices flowing and make my fancy dress. First things first...what to go as?? After hours of trawling the internet I settled on 'Army Pin-up'. So using a pair of old mans trousers (perfect green colour) I fashioned a pencil skirt and slightly risque top (it is a hen party after all!!), I'm really happy with how it came out and cant wait for the night! So along with some red lips and victory rolls I'm ready to go.
 I'll put up a victory roll tutorial later in the week :)

Then I went for a few days on the Isle of Wight and saw all my favourite people...

This is Claire, she is one of the most amazing people I know and my best friend.

My beautiful goddaughter Lilly trying to reach the sun.

The wonderful Rose and her new bestie Billie

Leaving the Island there was some working going on in the sea, it reminded me of Battersea Power Station.

Now it's Spring I can start to appreciate the beauty of Brighton again.
I love it!!

Happy Spring everybody

Pin It


  1. It's so nice, spring is really far away here, it started snowing again.

  2. I fought using the word spring too! Its been really warm here and it would irritate me when I would see people wearing shorts in February. Come on people it is still winter! But now that March has rolled around we can start talking about spring (and shorts. haha)

  3. Love the photos! The weather has been crazy it feels like its summer, autumn, winter and spring all in one week!

  4. Lovely pictures!!!!
    the colours are beautiful!
