Always Have You Right Here To Follow

I rarely write about perfume so I thought i'd share the three of my recent favourites. I've become a bit obsessed and spend far too much time in Boots choosing new scents to add to my Christmas wishlist. 
Marc Jacobs Honey - I got his perfume for my birthday last year and i've been trying not to use it too much as I don't want it to run out! I love the iconic Marc Jacobs packaging and the sweet scent which made it my go-to perfume this summer. 

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy - I'd heard lots about this perfume and couldn't resist treating myself to a bottle when I saw it on offer. Similarly to Honey it has a really sweet scent and it lasts all day which I love. Juicy Couture has never been a brand i've been interested in before but this perfume has changed my mind as i've had lots of compliments when wearing it.

The Body Shop Vanilla - This perfume is perfect to keep in your bag and has a really vanillary scent that lasts quite a while which is great considering the price. There's always a discount code around for The Body Shop so i'd recommend this if you're looking for an affordable new perfume or secret santa gift idea.

We Will Never Be The Change To The Weather And The Sea

Earlier this month I went on holiday to Devon and thought i'd share a few of my photos. One of my favourite days was when we took a short ferry ride across to Brixham. We had lunch in a little cafe tucked away around a corner called Millie & Me which i'd recommend, followed by ice cream from I Scream - I had Brownies & Cream which was amazing! The weather got sunnier throughout the day and the ferry ride back was like being abroad - perfect!

I Loved You With The Good And The Careless Of Me

A few weekends ago I went to Bettys in Harrogate for Afternoon Tea with a group of friends. I thought i'd share a few photos as I love nothing more than scrolling through food blogs!

We paid £26.95 each which included a cup of tea from their menu, a selection of sandwiches, two scones and three individual cakes.

Although it was expensive it was a nice treat and the food was well presented - my favourites were the chicken sandwiches and the scones which were really fresh and a lot nicer than shop bought ones! I can't really comment much on the tea as I never drink it but I opted for their Breakfast Tea which I liked and my friends who drink a lot more tea than I do said they enjoyed theirs.

It was served in The Imperial Room which felt very posh and had a man playing piano music through the afternoon. As it was my friends birthday he played 'happy birthday' and she was served with a French Fancie with a candle in it which was a nice surprise.

The service was good but it could have been better - we did have to get up and ask a waitress to come over and serve us and it seemed like we'd been completely forgotten as we were in table in the corner.

I've had afternoon tea at a few different places and Betty's definitely served the nicest food but i'm not sure if it was really worth what we paid. If you've got any recommendations for afternoon tea please let me know!
