[BETTY SNAPS] Our Easter Saturday, Hour by Hour...

Easter Saturday Hour by Hour, Top UK Lifestyle Blogs

I wish I could take full credit for the idea behind this post but, alas, it was borrowed from the wonderful Cider with Rosie, one of my fave lifestyle blogs. Rosie has such a wonderful way of documenting the ordinary and every photo of hers makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. After reading her hour by hour post, and seeing how adorably enchanting she made even the most mundane of tasks look, I thought I'd give it a go too...

So first of all, wasn't the bank holiday weekend wonderful? On Saturday we took a day trip to Brighton and although it could have been a little warmer (that sea air) I was so glad we chose Saturday to go, as the next couple of days ended up being a bit grey and rainy. It had been almost a year since we'd visited the seaside town and I'd forgotten just how quaint and pretty it is. But for once I'm going to let the photos do the talking so without further ado, this was our Saturday...

8am: Up early with the sun shining through the window and a cup of tea in bed, surely the best way to start any day. (and no, the irony of my 'party animal' mug is not lost on me)

9am: Outfit prepping and nail painting. I couldn't resist this pink two piece suit when I saw it in Zara last week and was determined to wear it at the first sunny opportunity. It may not have been traditional beach side attire but I didn't care. Mint coloured nails finished off the look.

10am: Breakfast cooked by GB, because a long day of sightseeing needs a hearty breakfast.

11am: Admiring the view from Blackfriars station while waiting to board our train. FYI little tip for you, if you travel to Brighton from Blackfriars instead of Victoria it's muchos cheaper, and in some ways more relaxing too. What a lovely station it is.

12pm: On the train. No photo because well trains do not make blog worthy photos so I'm skipping ahead and giving you two for 1pm instead.

1pm: Arrived in Brighton and headed straight to the delights of North Laine, full of antique stalls, flea markets and cute vintage stores.

1.15pm: Greeted by a seagull, just to remind us we're near the sea once again! Look at the guy on the left's face - priceless.

8pm: What else but a massive plate of fish and chips to end our day? If you look closely you may notice it's actually only half a fish as I got a bit carried away by my hunger and completely forgot to take a photo!

By 9pm we were back on the train to London exhausted but happy after a lovely day out. How was your Easter weekend?

  2. This looks amazing and a great way to spend a sunny day. I love Brighton. I need to daytrip there more often. I also love the hourly photo thing, although sadly I fear my life is far too dull for such a thing.
