Tea's Me

Sometimes in life you simply stumble upon greatness. You may not have intended to 'discover' on that day or to be inspired by where you were heading, when all of a sudden, there you are, overwhelmed by the beauty and encapsulated by the experience.
Last night, I attended what I thought was to be a preview for a new Notting Hill based catering company, aptly named Tea’s Me. With such an appropriate name, along with the prospect of free bubbly, canapĂ© and cake, I just couldn’t resist the invitation. However, upon arrival I was pleasantly and fashionably surprised to find this preview incorporating a gorgeous vintage dress and accessories sale. On this very ordinary first day of July I had accidentally found myself in heaven – cocktails, cup cakes, wall paper and dresses. Ladies, This is London.

[Insert gasp, shock, horror at price of jade coloured dress - yikes!]

Thanks...I will sure be checking it out this weekend, before it leaves us for good (and hopefully bag myself some amazing bargains). Have you tried the Hummingbird bakery in nottinghill? They do THE best cupcakes I've ever had, EVER!

Do you mind if I link up to you...got a cute and informative little blog here ;) Cx

Yikes, indeed! But what a wonderfully chic event. I can't wait to get to London. I hope I can attend some lovely events such as this.

Good grief, thank goodness for tea and cake to recover one's composure.

Danz said...

Ohhh those cupcakes look so delicious! What a great thing to stumble upon, it sounds like such a fun event!

I understand what you mean about the freedom to design. I'm a graphic designer and sometimes not having any limitations on an assignment can make idea selection very difficult. I'm learning to overcome this though, because having to meet deadlines forces you to get over this problem :)

Would you be interested in trading links?

I would have been just as excited at the thought of a bakery!! Sometimes i wonder whats more wonderful...fashion or food? Both are top priority in my books! I can't live without either...

Still loving your blog, but whatever will you do when you have to return to Oz...surely the stories will have less fabulousness to it...will have to come up with a way to big up Brissie!
