Lyme Regis Diaries.

After a little blogging break, I'm back with hundreds of photos from my recent road trip to Lyme Regis. Although I primarily write about beauty and style-related topics here on the ol' blog, I sometimes like to shake things up a bit by including some more personal posts from my travels. This week I headed to Lyme in Dorest to celebrate a university friend's birthday. It was three days of strolls on the beach, comfort food, and The Inbetweeners marathons - just what I needed to combat that mid-Easter lull.
Even as a self-confessed city girl, I can appreciate the beauty of this stretch of coast. The town itself is quaint and colourful, brimming with interesting local businesses and it has that real community feel that is often lacking in London. The best find was 'The Sanctuary' book store where I managed to snap up a vintage edition of Edith Wharton's 'The House of Mirth' for £3. The shop was a maze, full to the brim with ancient copies of the Beano and the National Geographic. In true English student style, this was definite highlight of the trip! As an lover of all things literature, I got a little overexcited by the fact that Jane Austen's 'Persuasion' is set in Lyme - there's even a little garden devoted to the author overlooking the Cobb. And like the absolute caffeine addict that I am, I stumbled upon an amazing little artisan coffee shop - who said you can't find good coffee out of London? For me, the sure sign of a good trip is when you start reminiscing when you've only been home for two hours.

I'm a firm believer in taking breaks from the internet every so often - social media, the news, and other apps which constantly pine for our attention can get a little overwhelming at times. Our little Lyme Regis mini break made us feel like we were the only people in the world. But I'm off to Norfolk for the annual family break tomorrow and it's safe to say that there will be guaranteed wifi there - my family doesn't travel anywhere without internet. It's a sad necessity for us. On the plus side, it'll mean no more blogging breaks. Oh to be back in Lyme...
