The few hours my mum and I had in Brighton felt like nowhere near enough, and I'll be planning a trip back there as soon as I can. We made a bee-line straight for the North Laines and within thirty minutes of wandering around, the city had my heart. So many colourful people, independent businesses and creative ventures, I felt just a little bit more alive and awake for being there. A similar kind of buzzing artistry as New York, is it any wonder I fell in love?

Of the whirlwind stops we made, I can wholeheartedly recommend an Iydea breakfast, Angel Food cupcakes (try the red velvet or the banoffee pie, if you can!), and don't miss visiting Books for Amnesty (so many books, so new, so cheap! I picked up my hardback copy of The Luminaries for £3!), Pretty Eccentric, Berts, Snoopers Attic or Edited Brighton for snooping. We also stopped at an amazing fudge kitchen and tried sea salt fudge - do that. Do that at every opportunity you get.

Have any of you been to Brighton, or are you lucky enough to live there? Where are your favourite haunts? Clue me in for my next trip!
