On the drive up to Leeds festival, Terri and I stopped off in the beautiful city of York for a spot of afternoon tea at Bettys tea room, so I thought I’d do a short review. We were lucky that we had a table booked in the Belmont Room as the downstairs cafe looked pretty busy!

The Ted Baker sale started a short while ago and I had a couple of items on my birthday wishlist, but as they were going out of stock quickly, I decided to treat myself to a few early pressies!
