vaKATEtion Photo Diary #1 / Brighton, Bees & Boho Gelato

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

Some of you may know that my best friend, Kate, flew over from the US to stay with me for a couple of weeks! This (and general lack of inspiration and willpower) is why I’ve been a bit quieter on the blog and social media over the past month or so, but I’m slowly working my way through all of the photos we took and working on a few other ideas that I’m excited to share with you.  It’s kind of funny though, because we’d talked a lot before she came about vlogging and taking loads of photos together and blah blah blah and in the end we did about zero of that and just lived in the moment and enjoyed each other’s company as if we’d never been apart.

Anywho, as you can see, I’ve decided to name the series of posts relating to Kate’s visit here my vaKatetion because I’m hugely witty, so enjoy.  Most of these will be really light on the text but heavy on the photo, so hopefully you're into that!

The first little day trip we took was over to Brighton since it wasn’t that far a drive, and although it resulted in my nearly trashing the car in a car park, it was an otherwise nice day spent wandering the streets and doing a little bit of shopping. Naturally, we took advantage of the veggie/vegan food available and enjoyed some more burgers from Hobgoblin and an ice cream from Boho Gelato (this time mine were the experimental flavours of lemon and ginger, and mango and chilli – both excellent!) and we took a few snaps, but I didn’t realise until we got there that it was ridiculously busy due to some kind of festival that ended that morning, on top of it being a Saturday. It made for quite a chaotic and stressful day trip in the end, but it was still nice to get out by the seaside on a nice day.

We happened to wander into a little indoor market and were delighted to find a photobooth, so obviously we had to get some photos taken. What we didn’t realise was that there were no instructions and we had no idea when the photos were going to be taken; hilarity ensued.


  1. Your images are lovely! It's so nice when you have a friend who doesn't particularly know the area come and stay, it sounds as though you had a lovely time in Brighton and the photo booth photos look fun :) xx

    1. Thank you! It is, and photo booths are my fav, so much fun!

  2. The downside of the video photo booth is that it may take longer to get guests in and out of the booth. It is recommended that if you rent a photo booth with video capability, you reserve it for a longer period of time than you would a regular photo booth. trade show
