Halloween extravaganza and a day in Brighton

Halloween is such a fun thing to do on a weekend. Just after summer holidays and before Christmas when you’re just a bit tired with the gloomy weather there’s an excuse to dress up and party (not that it’s hard to fins an excuse to do that in London)! I went to Brighton for a house party which was lots of fun and even though not everyone dressed up (there are always annoying people like that!) some of the costumes were really amazing.

IMG_4502Case in point this Maleficent costume that was made from scratch (extra points for that) and looked amazing. IMG_4444My friend went as a lion, which was quite easy for her to do considering her hair is like that naturally.IMG_4434 IMG_4452Angels from hellIMG_4501 IMG_4430 IMG_4486 IMG_4516I went as Little red riding hood that got caught by the wolf while strolling through the woods, hence the scratches on my face.

The next morning we were lucky enough to have a really nice day. Cold but sunny, and a big breakfast to cure the Halloween hungover was in order. We headed to The Creperie, which is probably the only place I’ve been to in the UK that does authentic savoury crepes. They are called galettes and made with buckwheat flour, that’s why they have a slightly brown colour compared to the sweet ones. IMG_4538

I had the mushroom medley galette with poached egg and cheese. This picture makes me want to go back now! It’s such a nice place with really good food and yummy milkshakes as well. If you’re in the area it’s worth a visit and it’s only a short walk away from the Brighton Pier, which is where we went to next. Very touristy of us I know but our 2 friends had never been to Brighton before so we had to have a stroll through all the different rides and the beach.
