A very Cocoa Hen Do: Part 1

So back In July, just as the sun was peeping out the sky we (Kate and I) escaped our little chocolate shop (Cocoa) for a proper girlie weekend in Brighton. Also known as my hen do, as planned entirely by Kate as a suprise for me! 


About 4 years ago my (now) husband and I went to Brighton & I fell in love with the whole place and said to Kate 'if I ever have a hen do, it has to be in Brighton'. And so the idea was born! Here is our gang of girls on the beach as soon as we arrived slightly tipsy from cocktails on the train.


 And where would a group of girls like to stay in Brighton... A Sweet Shop of course! This Gorgeous house used to be a sweet shop and has been converted to a quirky, girly house of dreams. Each bedroom has a sweetie theme, Liquorice allsorts (my room), Parma Violets, Lollipop & Sherbert Dip Dab.


 Lovely Stamps...



Cute buttons...

 A Magical Place...


 Lovely Deer...





Kitch... a Kitchen too nice to cook in


Great idea for cupboards.


Living room of lovelyness.


 Now back to the Beach!


Hot enough for a hen to swim in the sea!


 And for a cool down more suprises for me, Kate had booked us into ChoccyWoccy Boudoir. It's like Cocoa on acid.

This one has my name on it, so it must be for ME!

Hey where did all the Strawberries go!

 Strange Pink man...

 After getting high on Sun, Sea and Sugar I thought a little peek at a sex shop might add a little spice to the Hen do. I love the paintings on the outside of this one called Tickled.

Reminds me of the butterfly boudoir.

Love Birds.


 Next up time for a night out, let's get drinking! Asking me about hen do dirt, shame I am too boring to have any!

And out to a bar we can't remember but we had the dancefloor to ourselves. I believe we were jitterbugging.

This Sunflower was our mascot as donated by Nikki from Sharrow Marrow. 


To the Karaoke bar...

Getting in the Groove...

...and singing badly

 The rest of our Hen weekend was spent pampering ourselves and playing a game made all about ME by Kate called 'Trival Anne'. Where there so many questions about myself, even I didn't know some. All in all we had a marvelous time and may need to think of more excuses to go back down. Hats off to Kate for creating such an amazing Hen do.
