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!

Put My Money Where My Mouth Is

I've been on the look out for a new purse for a while after my old one was getting a bit worn around the edges. I knew I wanted something that could fit lots of cards in as I seem to have a bit of a collection of loyalty cards from just about every shop! 

I spotted this one from & Other Stories and fell in love with the summery colour. I was a bit reluctant to pay the £39 price tag so when it went into the sale a few weeks ago I bought it straight away.

I love the gold zip detail and how soft it is; there are also lots of hidden pockets inside which mean I can fit everything in and still zip it up easily. 

As I was paying (a quite expensive) £6 for delivery I also bought a nail polish as i've read lots of good reviews about their polishes. I picked up this pale mint colour called Moire Green. The application is easy as it's quite thin and you only need a couple of coats too.
