On Saturday I got the train into Birmingham to meet up with a few stylish blogging ladies for the first time. The lovely ladies were Emma, Claire, Eloise, Rebecca, Kim, Becca, and Maria. We started with a hot drink at Starbucks, then had a yummy lunch at Nandos, and then finished off the day wandering around the Bullring and up to the Christmas German Market.

*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…
