I arrived back yesterday from my weekend in London, full of new ideas for the site and new ideas for purchases!
I spent the weekend with my lovely friend Lucy; the editor behind the-luxelife.com and we met up with Olivia from newfavouritething.com for lunch. It was a great opportunity to chat to two 'seasoned professionals' and chat we did... over breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner!
Lucy and I started Saturday with pancakes in Westfield and a wander around the shops before meeting up with Olivia for lunch in Fire & Stone.
My lovely pancake; strawberries, chocolate and cream... the healthy choice!
I had a great chat with both Lucy and Olivia over lunch and came away with plenty of inspiration to keep blogging, hopefully I gave them some useful info as well.
After lunch Lucy and I made a mad dash back to hers to quickly change into something a little less comfortable and then headed out to afternoon tea at 'The Met Bar'.
We got started with a selection of cocktails, mine was called Firefly and was a gin based drink... I can't remember what else it had in it, but there was definitely gin, lots of gin... I swear I only had one!
Once the cocktail round was finished we moved onto the actual afternoon tea - apparently the cocktails weren't really part of it... but in my opinion they should be mandatory.
This particular feast was slightly different from the traditional afternoon tea as it was low in fat, but fear not, there were still plenty of cakes. I'll leave the full review to Lucy on the-luxelife.com as she's the expert, suffice it to say I came away absolutely stuffed and wishing I'd worn something looser fitting :)
I wore a dress from Topshop, which looks great on, but possibly not that practical for stuffing your face with cake.
Once we'd dragged ourselves home there was nothing left to do but open up a bottle of fizzy and curl up on the sofa to watch X Factor whislt eating (yes, again) yummy tacos.
Thanks to Lucy for putting up with me all weekend and offering me a place to crash when I'm next in town. She won't be able to get rid of me now :)
