A Tea-Filled 23rd



As you've probably already guessed by the pictures and the title of this post, my birthday this year was filled with copious amounts of tea and cake. On Monday I turned 23, and my boyfriend took me to Winchester where we indulged in scones with jam and clotted cream before taking a walk around the town in the sunshine. On the Wednesday my sister treated me to afternoon tea in London - we visited BB Bakery in Covent Garden and it was delicious! We feasted on finger sandwiches, tiny cupcakes, mini quiches and macrons. Situated on Chandos Place, the bakery is reminiscent of a Parisian patisserie  - everything about it is quaint and girly so it's definitely one to visit with your Mom/sister/friends. At £26 pp it's not the cheapest deal (although pretty reasonable considering it's London) but definitely worth it for a special occasion. 




I was also lucky enough to receive some beautiful birthday gifts. The gorgeous teacup and tea packet were surprises off my boyfriend - he knows me so well! My sister bought me the Alice in Wonderland mug while we were in London - if you saw my Spring Wishlist post a few months back you'll know I've wanted this for a while. Lastly, the Yankee Reed Diffuser was another surprise from my boyfriend. He has the Vanilla Frosting candle (he'd probably kill me if he knew I told you that haha) and I'm always saying how nice it smells. Now my room is filled with the same scrumptious fragrance *drool* 

Overall I had a really fantastic birthday, spending time with my favourites and consuming way too many calories. I can't wait to put my beautiful presents to good use! A huge thank you to my friends, family and boyfriend for making my 23rd so special. x
