Small pleasures | February 2018


Visiting Brighton 


I’ve visited Brighton more in the past year than I probably have during my whole life – I’ve just completely fallen for it. There’s so many amazing foodie spots to visit and so many lovely pubs and cafes to while away time in. In mid-February I went there again to visit my friend who moved to the city about a year ago, and had such a great time. We had an amazing veggie lunch in The Prince George, sampled wines in Ten Green Bottles and had a tasty dinner and cocktails in the Chilli Pickle. I can’t wait to go back soon! 


Finland trip 


Another, slightly bigger, trip I did this month was my holiday to Finland last week. I went to visit family and friends, but also to see my sisters school dance – a tradition in Finland for when the high school second graders become seniors – which made me feel super nostalgic – it’s 11 years since my own dance (HOW?!). The photo above is of my sister before her dance – isn’t she a beauty? 


The Good Place on Netflix


The Good Place, aka the new show with the wonderful Kristen Bell, on Netflix has been my favourite new TV show discovery this month. When I first saw the premise (Kristen Bell’s character gets into heaven but is not sure she belongs there) I wasn’t 100% it would be for me. I gave it a go anyway as I adore Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars forever!) and I’m so glad I did – it’s hilarious, thought provoking and highly addictive all at once, and I’m incredibly upset that I now have no more episodes to watch. Please bring it back soon, Netflix!


(Edit: I have just checked, and it will be back in September. SEPTEMBER! How can I make it until then?!)



Cold sunny days 


February has been colder than previous years (well, at least it has felt like that…), but we’ve also had so many of those beautiful sunny yet chilly days, which I am all for. I don’t really mind it being cold in February (well, I have my limits, but luckily the British winter usually adheres to them) – it is winter after all. I am looking forward to all the warmer days and cherry blossoms of spring, though – can you believe it’s March next week?! 


Dancing to indie music at The Lexington


I used to go out so much more than I do now, but last weekend, for the longest time, I went out dancing to indie tunes to north London’s The Lexington and had so much fun. I don’t do it too often anymore as I don’t like going to bed that late, but I think I do need to start adding these nights to my calendar a bit more often – they’re such a good pick me up if the music is right!


What are your favourite moments from the previous month?

  • The play that I’m in opens at the theatre royal next week and I’m super excited for that! X

  • This all put a smile on my fave babe!


    • Aww thank you! Hope you’ve had a great February xx

  • Love the tones and pink building 🔮🙏


  • I LOVE The Good Place, I have no idea how I’m going to cope waiting for it to come back haha. I re-watched it all after the end of the first season just to see what I’d missed, it’s weird how differently you see things when you know the twist! xx


    • I know – me neither! Apparently it won’t come back before next Autumn – sob! I think I need to rewatch it too, just to see if I can catch some clues I didn’t see the first time around… xx

  • You can’t beat an indie disco! That sounds right up my street. This week, I’ve been enjoying an Alvvays gig, discovering that Taskmaster is set to return to our screens soon and birthday dress hunting. I have a shortlist of 4 (pics on my blog if you fancy a gander). x

    • You really can’t! I went to another one last weekend and they played SUCH good music – I forgot how much fun it can be. Did you choose your dress already? I love that polka dot one so much! xx

      • Ahh, thanks so much for popping over to my blog. No, I haven’t picked yet but I think I’m leaning more to the gold xx
