Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well and welcome to my blog x
Today I am back with the second instalment of my short holiday, if you haven’t read my previous blog post about my day in Brighton, you should check it out before this one, ADD LINK. If you’ve read the previous post, you would know that my boyfriend and I booked a hotel in Eastbourne which was around an hour away and it was absolutely beautiful. We had the perfect weather and got so many great pictures! I would just like to say again, thank you to my boyfriend for taking all these photos! We left Brighton at around 4:30 so we did get a bit of time to wonder round Eastbourne before it got dark but the majority of this post will be from the whole day. I really hope you enjoy this post and if you do, make sure to give it a like also follow my blog for more, I’m going to try and corporate more travel posts into my blog because I really enjoy writing and reading them. Enjoy!
As I said before, we arrived in Eastbourne at around 5:30 meaning we still had time to have a look around but first we checked into the hotel, the room was beautiful and the view from the room was also beautiful, we got a small view of the beach and if you know me personally, I am obsessed with palm tree’s and there was so many here so it really made the pictures more pretty! The first thing we did was have a chill as we had been walking around the whole day and it was quite a long drive. At around half 6 we decided to head down to the beach and oh my, it was so beautiful (count how many times I say beautiful in this post ahaha) As I said in my previous blog post, one of my favourite sounds to keep me relaxed and content is the sound of waves crashing. At this time, the sea was starting to come in so we didn’t stay on the beach for long.
We headed over to the pier which was quite small but we got some great photos of the beach as I feel on a pier, you can always get the best photo’s. We started to get a bit hungry so we then headed to the local shopping centre which has loads of shops and we found a Chinese so we decided to eat there as it was simple and we only took pot noodles with us to have ahaha. We then headed back to the hotel and basically just chilled for the rest of the night, we did start to watch a film but I can’t remember the name but we fell asleep cause we had woken up at 3AM to get to Brighton ahaha.
I woke up at around half 7 that morning so I guess waking up at 3 AM has really messed up my sleep pattern ahaha but the view was absolutely beautiful and waking up to see the beach was amazing!! I really wanted to go out already to watch the sunrise but my boyfriend was still asleep ahaha. At around half 8, I started to get ready for the day, before doing my makeup, I did my skincare routine to make my face look fresh and then I decided to re create the peachy makeup look which I do have a blog post up on my blog if you’d like to check it out All things peachy drugstore makeup look. I also decided to wear my peachy coloured top to go with the makeup.
Once I was ready we decided to have some breakfast before we went out just so I don’t get hungry as fast. Check out for the hotel was at half 10 so after eating I packed up the rest of our stuff and I wanted some photos by the window for Instagram and they turned out so cute, my outfit of today was my peachy off the shoulder top, my black dungarees and my blue denim jacket as you’ll be able to see my my upcoming photo’s.
We then checked out of the hotel and put everything into the car and then headed off to the beach first and went in the other direction which we hadn’t gone the day before. Also, my boyfriend surprised me with another day and booked us another hotel, i’m so lucky, it was in Margate but unfornately there won’t be a blog post about the trip as I was really ill and didn’t get many images, but some of the photos of the trip will be uploaded on my instagram if you’d like to follow.

When we had finally left, it was around half 9 and the first thing we did was go for a walk along the beach and walked up near to the cliffs. There were these paths where you could easily walk up to the top and as I’m scared of heights it was great! We went up around 2 paths basically and the view was absolutely beautiful and by beautiful it really was. I got so many beautiful photographs, their probably my favourite photos to date, I might even get them printed!
The next thing we decided to do was go back up to the main part of Eastbourne and go into the art gallery, I have a really big obsession with art galleries and I think I’ve been in one every place I’ve been, I just love seeing the different types of art they have and that their isn’t just one type!! It was a very small art gallery in comparison with the Manchester one I went into but there were some beautiful pieces there.
As it was around 10:30 we decided to go to the shopping centre which we did walk past the day before but we couldn’t have a look round as all the shops were closed, I wasn’t really planning on buying anything but I was on the hunt for buying some culottes as they have been in season recently and I really just wanted a pair. There were so many Charity shops around Eastbourne and I absolutely love them because whats better than getting something second hand for half the price of a new one, the amazing news is that I found some rose gold culottes which were exactly what I was looking for, for only £3 what a bargain!! You will see an image later as I wore then on the evening. I didn’t really buy much else, just food.
There wasn’t much else to do so we decided to go sit on the beach for a few hours and at this time it was around 3 PM and we did have another hotel booked around an hour away so we didn’t stay for long but we just sat there and relaxed and took some photos, it was such a beautiful day again so it was amazing just sitting in the sun and relaxing.
We decided to leave and head to Margate which took us around 2 hours as there was a lot of traffic, once we got to the hotel, we unpacked some of our clothes and got everything from the car. I was so excited as the hotel was on a massive retail park and the best thing was, there was a Primark!! we had a look around each shop and then headed back to the hotel. We just chilled for a bit and then we started to get hungry, about 2 minutes away there was a Toby Carvery and it would of been rude not too, we booked it for around half 8 so we decided to get ready again because I looked very tired from the journey. I also wore the culottes I was talking about, tell me what you think of them x
We didn’t really do much when we got back as we were both super tired so we decided to watch some family guy and just have a bit of a chill, I did my skincare routine before going to sleep and then I just slowly fell asleep, I really hope you enjoyed both of these blog posts, I enjoyed writing them so much!
