Afternoon Tea at Harrods

We recently went to Harrods for afternoon tea. As a huge scone fan (well I'm actually more a fan of the clotted cream you put on the scones), I was very happy about this. 

Alongside our choice of tea (I went for the Yin Zhen Silver Needle tea, which is a white tea from China) we were given finger sandwiches with four different fillings and savoury cheese tarts. Once we had finished the waiter asked if we wanted another plate of sandwiches, of course we said yes, they were too good to pass up! 

We then moved onto the scones which were served warm with clotted cream, rose-petal jelly, strawberry jam and lemon curd. Again we were offered seconds but were already getting pretty full by this point and had to keep room for the adorable mini pastries from Harrods' patisserie, plus the cute little jar of raspberry trifle.

The tea we had is called The Georgian Afternoon Tea, it's £39 per person and it's in the beautiful Georgian Restaurant on the fourth floor of Harrods. It was so delicious and an amazing experience too, I definitely recommend it if you're in London sometime soon.

And as the dress code for the restaurant was smart-casual, I wore my favourite floaty blouse from ASOS along with ripped jeans and my leopard print courts (these heels were such a good buy, they go with everything!)

Where's your favourite place to go for afternoon tea?

Lavender Fields

There's nothing more calming then a field filled with lavender, amirite? I'm currently away in Paris for a few days (follow me on Instagram for updates!) but wanted to share these photos from last weekend. 

We visited the Mayfield Lavender Fields in the North Surrey Hills, and as a girl who can't be two feet away from her phone without hyperventilating, it was nice to spend the day surrounded by nature. I definitely recommend a trip to Mayfield, it's open until mid-September and walking between the rows upon rows of vibrant lavender is truly breathtaking. There's also a little cafe where you can have lavender ice cream, scones with cream and jam and sometimes there's a BBQ on the go. 

As for our Parisian adventures, this morning we visited the beautiful hidden passages near the Grands Boulevards (Galerie Vivienne is a must-see) and we're now off for a wonder around the Ile Saint-Louis - I hear the ice cream there is incredible!
