Essex // by Rebecca Geeves

Blogger Introduction

Hello everyone! I’m bex from www.rebeccageeves.blogspot.com and today I’m writing about my lovely home county of Essex!

My blog consists of a mismatch of everything include beauty, fashion, lifestyle and self-help.

Why I chose to write about Essex…

Now I know that the Essex area has been tarnished with the likes of TOWIE over the past few years, but I’m here to hopefully show you that it is still such a beautiful place to visit.

5 things to see and do in Essex

Walking

There are plenty of beautiful parks, trails and scenic routes in Essex for a walk, hike or a run…

Essex - Audley End

Shop

Now if you follow me on twitter you will know that this is my favourite thing to do! And there are plenty of places in Essex to do this without having to take the travel into London.

Get a Tattoo

Getting tattooed is one of my favourite things to do in Essex.. I have got four of my tattoos in Essex and there are some really amazing places. Definitely don’t need to head to London for a great tattoo.

Southend on sea

This is one of my favourite places and I don’t mean for the beach.. I love the arcades and I will never get too old for it!! Definitely one of my favourite spots.

Essex - Southend-on-Sea

The Clubs

Now I am not a huge drinker anymore, but Essex has got some pretty good nightlife. Whether you go to chelmsford, Romford, Brentwood or even Southend there is a club for every scene and music taste and it really puts a great night out.. I recommend Missoula, faces, CTZN and sugar hut.

Rebecca’s Recommendation for Food & Drink in Essex

For me I will always love the city diner in chelmsford that offers amazing diner food. The full shebang when it comes to greasy grub and the fact you can get a quarter pounder mixed grill for £8.50 is amazing.

    To be honest I never knew there was so much to do in Essex. I think it sometimes gets a bad rap. Those beach huts look stunning !

    My home county!!! <3 <3 It definitely get's a bad reputation because of TOWIE but it truely is a beautiful county. There's so much to do that no one knows about! Chelmsford is my home city and the past few years they've added so many more restaurants and shops so there is plenty to chose from!

    We’ve previously visited Southend on sea as a very spontaneous day trip from London one day to surprise James! We’d love to explore more of that side!
