I had an okay week at work, but I had an A-mazing weekend! It was so fabulous from start to finish. On Friday myself and two of my girlies went on a last minute night out. It was great to have a catch-up and a giggle with those two. On Saturday, myself and my best friend Alison went on a speed boat (RIB ride) on the River Thames, it was so much fun... they speed you along the river and play James Bond music so you feel like you're in an action film! My lovely Ali said it was her best birthday experience gift yet which made me super happy. After our boat ride, we went for din dins in a nice little pub the food was amazing. Sunday morning was spent pottering around Brighton... I got a lovely breakfast but they did bring it with an egg so I just gave that and the toast away as it didn't touch anything else (vegan problems haha). I love the little shops so much and the fact there are an abundance of vegan restaurants there makes my life complete! Sunday night was a lovely, chilled, snuggled one :) ...Just Perfickkkk!

Gratitude Diary
1. My best friend Alison is the most wonderful person I have ever met. I feel blessed that such a friend is in my life, well; she is more of a sister than a friend to me. My whole heart, soul and mind loves and trusts her. She has been going through a ridiculously tough time recently and she still remains the strongest person I know. No matter what life throws at her, she pushes through with her strength of character and wicked sense of humor. She inspires me every day and has had such a huge influence on my life. The best memories I have made in life have all been with Ali by my side. She inspired me from a young age to be a better person. She is part of the reason I grew away from becoming a materialistic person among other valuable life lessons. There has never been a time where I thought Alison has been malicious or bitchy towards me. Even at times where many would have been, she has never sunk to that level because she is vibrating at a higher conscience than most of us other gormless human beings. She's an inspiration, a true friend and she possesses the kindest heart on top of all of that! Goodness knows what I would have done without my Al Pal in my life, it wouldn't have been half of what it has been without her that's for sure! 
2. I love, love, LOVE the rain. Oh my goodness. I can't believe people dislike it so bad. There is nothing better than the sound of the rain falling while you're snuggled in bed all cozy. I adore the sound, the sight and the smell of rain. I like walking in the rain when I have warm clothes and an umbrella to stay dry under... the sound of the rain dripping onto the umbrella makes me happy as well. If I haven't done my hair and make-up or even if I have but I am not going anywhere I feel I have to look presentable, I even adore walking or jogging in the rain without an umbrella. The smell of the streets, trees, and plants after it rains is probably one of my favorite smells in the universe. In fact ,when I lived in Spain, when it rained I felt totally at home and all home sickness disappeared. To be fair, it is probably a good thing I adore the rain so much being that I am from the UK and it doesn't stop raining here!
3. I LOVE BRIGHTON. Seriously, I need to move there in the near future because it is just such an amazing place so full of creativity, vibrancy and inspiration. It's the most eclectic place I have ever had the pleasure of spending so much time in. The businesses there have so much more to offer to someone like myself who is conscious of the environment, animal welfare, natural products and free thoughts. There are so many vegan and vegetarian places to visit from food places to shoe makers. Brighton is where the heart is.
