Portobello and Champagne Afternoon Tea

It's Friiiday! I'm hoping this weekend is going to be as good as last. The one just gone, I hopped on the train to London to meet some favourite girls at Portobello market, which was then followed by afternoon tea. Just because. It was a beauuutiful day - we were so lucky with the weather, and everything in Notting Hill just looked lovely. Spring is most definitely on its way!

Laura and I couldn't resist a ham and cheese crepe at the market... 

Browsing the stalls was thirsty work, so we stopped for a quick drink at The Duke of Wellington. We all (I...) enjoyed spying on some super cute pooches lapping up the sun outside!

And then it was time for afternoon tea! The London Westminster Hotel was offering an unlimited Laurent Perrier Champagne afternoon tea... so... we went for that. It was modern, spacious, and feminine. There were flowers and sparkly drinks everywhere (that kept being filled up by the Champagne Fairies whenever you turned your head) and (my favourite part) a harpist playing Disney songs in the corner! I was in heaven.

Jess particularly enjoyed the scones, jam and clotted cream...

It was such a lovely day. It's always so nice catching up with old friends; leaving the day-to-day behind, and just, well, recalibrating a little! :o) I'm looking forward to our next adventure already. 

If you fancy some sandwiches and scones at Westminster too, bookings can be made here.
