Afternoon Tea - yes please!

Hi to all, how's Thursday going?

A visit to the hairdresser this morning, left me feeling dark and shiny - my hair that is.  Isn't it nice to relax in the salon?  Having your hair professionally coloured, cut and dried, made me feel and hopefully look - ha ha - a few years younger!  Well hubby said I did anyway. <3

I was rather excited to be going out for afternoon tea today, I managed an honorary invite from my girls, because they were taking my mum for a birthday present.  It's difficult to buy for some people, especially when they can buy themselves what they want, so sometimes spending time together is the very best present you can give.
Smart casual was the dress code for the afternoon, after seeing how my daughters and mum looked - so I popped on my cream and black patterned Capri pants, along with a black jumper, sparkly gold necklace and my recently purchased black faux suede ankle boots.  Glad I changed out of my skinny jeans,  I departed feeling polished in my black and cream outfit.










I couldn't wait to start with this Afternoon tea at The Crescent Turner, it was absolutely amazing,  my favourite had to be the scones - one plain, one fruit.
Copious amounts of tea, a cheeky glass of prosecco and this simply stunning array of sandwiches, cakes, quiche and scones with the obvious addition of jam and clotted cream - mouth watering - I couldn't say no!  Presentation was superb, along with the first class service.  It's my second visit to this establishment the first being morning tea see my Lotus shoe boot post here.  Afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco is a mere £22, great value for money.
Do you have a favourite venue for afternoon tea?

Happy with myself as I even managed to wrap a few presents between getting back from the hair salon and leaving for my afternoon out - all done without any sign of a bottle of Baileys or a tub of Quality Street - see yesterdays post here, however there's always next time!

Enough for today - see you soon.  X

    Your outfit is pitched perfectly for tea and your hair looks lovely with the colours you're wearing. Your mum must have enjoyed her tea treat, looks yummy.

  9. Both my husband & I love going for afternoon tea---it seems so indulgent, doesn't it?
    I've always said that if I won the lottery, I'd have my hair done for me every day---it's the best thing ever!
