A friend of mine and Dan, Andy, left town the other day for a 3 months jaunt in America. So far I’ve seen a picture of him with his soft top burgundy Mustang (he passed his driving test around 2 weeks ago) and another photo of him toting an M43 automatic rifle. Living the American dream, then.
Whilst hiding my jealousy of a 3 month America road trip proves hard, fortunately it isn’t all bad as Andy organised a great meal out the night before he left. Unfortunately, he chose my not so favourite restaurant on Preston Street: Sushi Garden. But, when it comes to food, what Andy says, goes, so off we trotted through Brighton’s famous Pavilion Gardens post foreign-student-6pm.
Outfit wise, I went for my uniform of faux-leather, green dress and Office boots. I really love the colour of this ASOS midi dress and at £25 it’s a steal. Unfortunately I think it’s a tiny bit too long for me, I think a couple of inches off the hem and it could look really nice. As I’m fairly tall (5’8) I don’t know how anybody shorter would find it to be ‘midi’!
I got this bag from Snoopers Paradise, the random market-type vintage junk shop in the North Laines. While it was pretty expensive at £20 (these shops now tend to chuck ‘vintage’ on the price tag and mark it up by a tenner) I loved the clasp, shape and colour and thought it was in very good condition. I can’t fit my mega purse in it, but that’s a bonus anyway as it just means Dan has to pay ;)
Make-up however, is pretty much the same as normal. This is my Nars ‘Dragon Girl’ Matte lip pencil. I’m totally going to get another one of these in maybe a rouge red when I get paid.
Finally – Sushi Garden. I don’t know what they have done in the last ~12 months since the last time we visited, but I thought the food was amazing. Especially the stuff everyone else ordered! Me being me decided to play it safe after our last experience and ended up with food envy all night. If you’re ever in the Hove area, craving Japanese, head to Preston Street and don’t order something safe, go crazy with a few of the veggie tapas dishes.
Until next time good friends, good night.
