Our first editorial

I was delighted to see Little Beach Boutique featured in our first editorial recently. Smallish Magazine, which specialises in ‘Family life for the Modern Mother’ ran a feature in their May edition all about Brighton, aka ‘Britian’s Riviera’ and we were described as a ‘firm fav’ in the North Laine shopping area. They mention our limited edition children’s books by Temporary Measure and our handmade felt slippers and describe us as ‘bijou’ which brought a smile to my face (because I had to look it up!)

A guide to Brighton ‘Britain’s Riviera’ in Smallish Magazine in May

We were in great company, alongside the newly completed British Airways BA i360, as somewhere to visit, and local favourite, the Coalshed, as somewhere to eat.

May is a perfect time to visit Brighton, so it is well timed. The city comes to life with two festivals running alongside each other. The Brighton Festival is curated by Kate Tempest this year and I am really excited about the personal touch she has already bought to the established way of things, with a focus on inclusivity and branching out into areas of Brighton that haven’t be featured in recent years. I’m excited about ‘For the Birds‘ which is an ‘immersive night time adventure’ running throughout the month. As a bird nerd and someone who loves to get away from it all up South Downs, this is the perfect event for me!

I am also excited about the Brighton Fringe festival which runs throughout May.  It always boasts a packed line up of events and brings music, art, comedy, theatre and a sense of adventure to each corner of Brighton.  A great way to see the city and its amazing creativity whilst peeking behind the doors of some of Brighton’s historical homes and buildings is to follow the Artist’s Open Houses trail. There are always some established listings who open their doors each year and become veritable art galleries for three weeks. Alongside them are new listings made up of artists collectives exhibiting for the first time.  I wish I could go every weekend-but I still wouldn’t have time to see it all!

We hope you’ll be able to pay us a visit if you visit Brighton during May-but it is always a great place to come…and we are open every day!

Bye for now x
