Starfish & Coffee Brighton | Cafe Review

Starfish & Coffee review

When a new café opens up in town, I’m like one of those fish in the Amazon. You know the ones that follow a line of urine until it finds the dude’s urethra (bear with me) – reasons not to pee in open water, entry number one.

At the same time, these fish do not discriminate and will happily enter a vagina should it be convenient or the anu… you know what, it doesn’t matter.

Anyway, I’m like one of those fish in some ways but not in others.

Similar in the sense that we both seize new opportunities to feed but immensely different in the sense that I tend to follow a line of coffee or cake, not urine. I’m sure you’ve just let out a huge sigh of relief at that revelation, that’s if you even made it this far.

Well, that was a very unconventional start to a review wasn’t it now? You know how I like to do things a little differently round here (you can also read my review of the Red Roaster, Brighton, here).

5 Things I Have Learned About Blogging So Far

Thing I've learned about blogging

Happy belated birthday bloggy! My humble corner of the interweb just turned a whole year old and I can’t quite believe it.

I’m not saving lives but I am over here looking like a proud mum watching her daughter in the school nativity. Sure, she’s only the ‘little donkey on the dusty road’, but she’s my little donkey.

A Long Weekend In Barcelona

barcelona city break

I could just cut to the chase and tell you we bumbled around Barcelona for three days, hoovering up pizza, doughnuts, tapas and gelato like Hansel and Gretel on roids but I know I need to give you more than that.

But you should know,  I will have to pause for typing breaths here and there along the way because I’m pretty sure I’m still digesting the calamari.

How I Outran A Break Up

How I coped with a break up

Three years ago on this very Bridge, me and my then boyfriend decided to do the thing that every couple swears they will never, ever do. We decided to pull the plug on our relationship. Give up. Royally f*ck each other over. 

We sat through an awful, awful lunch – where I cried into my salad (a true sign that I was desperately unhappy if ever I did see one. The salad, not the crying!) as a pianist quite literally played the song sheet of my breaking heart – C minor.
