Our Trip To Lyme Regis This Year
And I’m back! Like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I was taking a full week off while I was on holiday. Usually I wouldn’t do that, but I didn’t think there would be much point in putting out content if I’m not here to accept your comments and reply to you, and I love that aspect of blogging, where I get to interact with you all. So now I am back from our trip to Lyme Regis in Dorset! Adam and I went there last year as well and loved it so much that we wanted to go again this year!
Unfortunately this year the weather was not on our side though, it rained on and off constantly all week, so we couldn’t look for fossils and we couldn’t go on any woodland walks either since it was closed off, and then on the last day, the sun came out for a couple of hours, before we were due to come home, and we got sun burned!
Anyway, there were moments of beauty in the evenings when the rain stopped for a while, and it was nice to be away, but I often find we never get breaks fully because we’re always shooting photos so that we don’t waste an opportunity. You can see all of the photos that we shot on my iPhone in this blog post, and of course separate outfit posts will be coming soon as well over the next month or so! Plus, at the bottom of this post, there’s a little new purchase surprise you might want to check out!
When the sun came out on the last day, Friday, the water glistened!
This was my outfit on the first day, a blue playsuit from H&M that I included in my wish list.
The houses in Lyme Regis are always so beautiful with their pastel colours!
Waiting inside the hotel for the rain to stop!
The coolest and most delicious fudge shop there in the town! All home made at the shop! I don’t even like fudge, but the mint chocolate and the chocolate orange was absolutely delicious!
Sunsets on one of the evenings. Truly so serene!
More pastel tones and hues!

This was Thursday night, before coming home on Friday. It was magical.
This was while we were waiting under a tree for 1 whole hour for the rain to subside!
Another shot from inside Alexandra Hotel.
A look towards the other end of Lyme Regis, which we hadn’t really explored before.
Waiting inside the arcade, again for rain to stop, ha ha.
The sun came out, so quick, lets take a photo!
Breakfast each morning on the left, and Adam’s sandwich on the right.
This was such a pretty view and I loved the scenery! Can you spot how many seagulls there are in the left photo? There’s a bigger image of it at the top of this post!
I couldn’t get enough of this stunning view, and I still can’t!
Sunsets are just a thing of beauty when you’re at the beach.
We stopped off at the Mulberry factory shop at Shepton Mallett on the Monday, there was a bag I had been eyeing, so we went back in on Friday on the way home and I was there for about half an hour trying to decide. It was originally the Lily in Ruby Red that I liked, and had liked for over a year, but after seeing a scratch on the metal hardware and deciding red isn’t very practical, I went with another shade I’d been loving for a year called Rosewater. Now the issue was deciding which bag I wanted in this shade, the Lily or the Small Darley. I was torn. Originally I loved both, but I was gravitating towards the Lily, but given the fact it wasn’t discounted by much and was still over £600, while the Darley was £200 cheaper, it was really making my decision difficult. I love them both, but can you decide which bag I went for in the end? Left or right?
And finally, like I mentioned, severe sunburn! I’m still in pain from it now and it happened on Friday! I wont be making that mistake again of not thinking I needed sun cream even if it was raining. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my photos! Lorna xx.
