Brighton Pride 2011

Brighton Pride 4

Last Saturday, my hubby and I attended Brighton Pride parade, one of the biggest Pride parades in Europe. I’ve been to London Pride (which is slightly bigger than the Brighton one) before, but oh my, I was never so proud to be a part of such a positive festival! Read More

Art Inspiration: Exhibition by Stephane Cauchy

Stephane Cauchy 3

I found Fabrica, an art organisation based in a former Regency church, by accident when I was exploring Brighton city centre. According to their website, they commission contemporary visual art installations specific to the building; I love site specific installations because they show what the artists have felt and how they were inspired by the site, and that could be very telling about certain aspects of the artists. At the moment, they are having an exhibition by French artist Stephane Cauchy called Cascade. Read More

London to Brighton

Brighton Rocks hello

Hello lovelies! I’m really sorry that I’ve been away for so long; it’s been almost 1 month since I posted my last entry (yes, I’m actually in a cold sweat!). The reasons for my absence are: 1) my hubby and I moved to Brighton, a seaside city about an hour away from London 2) because of the move and our brilliant internet service provider, we were cut off from the internet connection all these time (it sucks but I shouldn’t be so surprised by this kind of problem in the UK).

On Weird and Wonderful

Weird and Wonderful 5

I am in the middle of ‘panic packing’ at the moment. Why, you may ask. Because my hubby and I are moving away from old, sweet London to Brighton next weekend! We finally found a right place to move into – an old, cosy (which can be translated to ‘shabby and small’, but hey…) cottage. Read More

Every Sewers’ Dream…

Sewing Box 1

Isn’t it just darling?! My friend gave it to me as a bridesmaid gift: a house-shaped Cath Kidston sewing box. I had been dying to have this for the past 18 months (basically, since the first time I set my eyes on it) so when my friend gave it to me, I was sooo excited I almost wet my pants with joy!

If You Visualise ‘Happiness’…

it would look like this. Well, that’s what I thought when my friends tied the knot last weekend. After lots of happy tears and joyful laughter, beautiful food and moving speech, they are officially ‘Mr & Mrs’, and I am so grateful that I could be a part of their special day with her loving families and friends.

E for Easter…?

 E for Easter top

Hope you all enjoyed the Easter Holiday! I still cannot believe how gorgeous the weather’s been in the past four days; we could actually MOAN that it was TOO HOT, which very rarely happen in England! But to be perfectly honest, I still have no idea what I’m supposed to do during Easter (We don’t celebrate Easter in Japan). Yes, I see lots of rabbit and egg-shaped chocolates in the supermarkets, but why…? Anyways, here are some of the things I got this Easter. Read More
