Afternoon Tea At The Connaught Hotel London

I had a fabulous pre birthday afternoon tea at The Connaught Hotel London yesterday.  My mum and I felt like two queens. 

   

     

 

I have been to a lot of afternoon teas over the years and this was the best! We started with a glass of champagne then they bought us our tea selection of “old blue eyes”, followed by the tier of gorgeous food. The sandwiches were lovely my fav was the smoked salmon.  The service was fantastic the staff explained the selection of food and gave me 4 more of the smoked salmon sandwhich#greedy. 

The little pattiseries were so delicate and fresh each with a gold flake on top. 

To top off all of this they bought over fresh scones with more cakes and jam made by the chef that day 🙂 I was in heaven. 

There was a harpist playing for some of our tea playing my favorite song moon river *smiles* 

If you can commute to the london Mayfair area you must go!!! 

Afternoon tea costs £45 champagne afternoon tea is £52

Hey Lovelies, Hope you are all having a fab week.  I have put together some of my favourite items at the moment.  Firstly I purchased these cute little moccasin pumps in Dorothy Perkins yesterday I just think they are adorable and practical for everyday wear, the original pricetag read £23 but when I went to the cash desk the lady said that will be £18 please, I love that feeling of saving money when you get to the till haha. I walked out the shop with a grin on my face.

As you would have seen on my previous post I have been wearing this stunning mink coloured Fedora Hat about 3 times since I purchased it around a week ago! I get comments every time I wear it! and if you are lucky you might find it at ASOS it is River island and was in the sale for £13 when I purchased it.

I am a huge River Island fan and as you may have guessed that’s where this Tiger Top is from! I have been wearing this a lot lately its perfect with wet look leggings as well as tucked into jeans or shorts! and teamed with a blazer.

I ran out of concealer the other day and thought I would try Rimmels wake me up concealer, it did not disappoint I love how easy it is to apply, it is pretty light coverage and works wonders for under your eyes and small blemishes, its not at all “cakey” and blends in really well.

I would not be without my Benefits “They’re real” mascara the pricetag is £25 so more than some brands but it is really worth the money! I ususally only have to put on one or two coats and my eyelashes look huge!

Last but not least I really wanted to write about my love of “coconut water” I have drunk water from a coconut on a beach in Dubai but this time it was in a bottle in the restaurant “Eat” I have to confess I don’t like to drink water from a tap or bottled water much, weird I know I prefer juices and something that has taste to it! and Unoco coconut water is certainly impressive! it tasted clean and subtle. Perfect for post-workout rehydration because coconut water contains essential electrolytes like potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium. If you are into “healthy eating” and want to eat more clean, I would really recommend trying coconut water.
Unoco is slightly different from coconut waters, made using wild jellynut coconut – a young, green coconut from the Philippines – and unlike other variants on the market is unheated. I will definitely be drinking more of the coconut goodness! and I want to try other brands now as well.

Have you tried coconut water before?
