See a new side of Brighton with blogger Fifi McGee, as her eponymous blog features gorgeous photography of the areas surrounding Brighton and the Sussex Weald taken by her photographer partner.

The blog’s tagline is “Cushion mad and happiest when out on a country walk” and this sums up her charming, personal take on homes and seaside living perfectly.
