LIFESTYLE: Lunch & Tea
Most of my day today was spent eating. What a pig hahah my dad took me, my mum and one of my brother for lunch at a local restaurant called The Blue Boar! I always pass it and have seen a few scenes from TOWIE have been filmed in there so I was excited to try!
We had a really nice meal, I tried not to eat too much as I had a blogger afternoon tea party event coming up straight after. I tried, but failed. I ended up with ribs and tempura prawns, both in starter form so as you can see, at least I did try hahah as well as that I had a slice of garlic bread and half a Creme brûlée.
Once I was totally stuffed I hopped on a train into St. Paul's where I walked to The Grange Hotel. I had been to the Holborn Grange with Andrew before and it was an amazing 5* hotel so I expected a lot and I wasn't disappointed. It was a beautiful place. The blogger event was held by spa and well being brands Sranrom and Ajala.
Soon after I arrived, I met up with Lorna and her friend Dina who she brought with and we were given a tour around the hotel's spa which was absolutely amazing, it was to calm and relaxing as a spa should be. The pool area was super pretty with soft lighting, black stone décor and water running down the wall. Lucky us, at the end of the event we were all asked to write down our emails so we could get a complementary treatment over the next month. I'm very excited about that and will be sure to blog about it for you guys!
As well as the tour we were all treated to afternoon tea, which as you may know is one of my favourite things to do. There were mini scones with clotted cream and jam, the usual finger sandwiches and lots of pretty cakes and tarts! We all sat down with our food and tea for a chat and then were back off to the station. Today was pretty good, it just went really fast and now I'm kinda feeling a bit bloated hahah
And the lovely goodie bag! The tangy Delight flavour is my favourite by far! I love anything that smells ornagey
