Wicked…..Jet Lag

Whenever I’m back in London, I like to fit in a West End show if I can. I don’t mind whether it’s theatre or musical, I’m up for either!
This time it wasn’t just a treat for me, I also took my mum along as a treat for her. My friend booked the tickets and her sister came along as well. We were off to see Wicked, after our sushi dinner.

As it turns out we were in THE last row of the theatre. If you’re scared of heights this would have been torture for you. The show was fantastic! Well, the parts I was awake for. Having just returned from South Korea I was fighting some serious jet lag.
The show was one of the longest I have ever been to, which is great as you get more bang for your buck. Unfortunately for me, I was so exhausted I just wanted it to be over. Learn from my mistake, full belly, late show and jet lag equal a no-no. Rest up well so you can enjoy every minute of your musical experience.


A Chocolate Affair

Down the meandering little alleys of Brighton, you can find yourself at a small chocolate haven. This delicious paradise is aptly named Choccywoccydodah!
Amazing pieces of chocolate artwork greet you in their window and inevitably entice you in. It’s a small shop with no lack of visitors, so squeezing pass other admirers without knocking anything over is a risky little game. The detail and intricacy of their work is just fantastic. I went around the whole shop twice and I could have easily done it another two times, I was so awestruck by their masterpieces.
Of course the smell of chocolate is thick in the air, so if you’re a chocolate lover, this is definitely your heaven. I picked up a present of chocolate covered popcorn for my friend. There were a few jelly babies thrown on for good measure.
At the register, I spoke to a couple of friendly staff members who told me a little more about their work (and gave me chocolate!). They make everything at a nearby studio and bring it over to the shop. On the days they’re not delivering to the local shop in Brighton, they take fresh stocks up to their London branch.
If you’re a chocolate lover, an art lover or you just like seeing super awesome, cool, amazing things, you should definitely check out Choccywoccydodah when in Brighton or London. There’s even a cafe where you can take a load off and enjoy some delightful treats. Brownies, milkshakes, sundaes, take your pick! May chocolate be with you 🙂
