If you’re a blogger, I’m sure you’ve probably already heard of the famous Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium, which is Londons first cat cafe! A cat cafe is basically what it says on the tin, a normal cafe, but with cats casually strolling around for you to play with. Being a massive cat lover it was the land of dreams for me, or so I thought! I felt incredibly lucky to have booked a time slot for the weekend only a few weeks in advance, as there’s usually a few months of a waiting list. So we’d booked our time slot…

My birthday was on the 30th July but I’ve managed to string my celebrations out for over a whole week! I didn’t do too much on my actual birthday as it was during the week and people were busy, but the weekend before I had a miniature tea party in my garden with my family, including my little niece who loves this kind of thing! Nothing fancy, just a few cakes and sandwiches and pretty tableware. Sorry about the dark photos.. the sun was quickly disappearing in the evening!  I set the table with my pretty Cath Kidston tea set…

After our lovely long week in Tenerife, as soon as we touched down at Luton Airport we were on the train. But we weren’t heading home, Liam and I went straight into Central London as I’d booked us a night at the Thistle Marble Arch. Before we’d booked Tenerife I had already bought us tickets to go and see You Me At Six live at Alexandra Palace. And then when Liam was given a week off work (he’s in the Army so doesn’t get to chose his time off) the week before the gig, we had to cram the holiday…

At the weekend, my best friend and I went to Stratford Upon Avon for my birthday. We went last year too, and we decided to go to the same place for afternoon tea, which was at the Grosvenor Hotel. Because we went on a Sunday I thought the whole town would be dead, but it was actually rammed with people! We had a walk down the canal, popped into the shops on the high street, and they had a really lovely big local market on. After we had a little walk around the town, we went to the hotel for…

Last summer I was invited along to one of the afternoon tea events held by Royal Albert in London. I went with my Mum and we had a fantastic time! I did a blog post here, as I took a few lovely photos of the afternoon tea event. It involved a lovely floral van serving cups of tea and juice in their finest china. They also served little cakes and macaroons under a cute marquee lined with ditsy bunting. I’m quite excited to announce that they are running the event again this year! So if you’re in London on any…

*I’m away in the Lakes right now, but here’s a scheduled post* My best friend Leonie kindly bought me an afternoon tea voucher for my birthday (which was in July) and we finally got found to using it at the weekend! We picked to go to the Crooked House in Windsor, as it looked so charming and unique! It is a quintessential English tea room, in a little crooked timber-framed building. It’s actually leaning over! Very interesting. It was on the main high street in the heart of the town, and we also wanted to browse around a nice place…
