A Coffee Morning for The Neuroblastoma Society

On Friday, my Mum and I decided to host a coffee morning for the Neuroblastoma Society - a charity extremely close to our hearts that raises money to fund research to fight Neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer and offers support for families affected.
I spent the whole of Wednesday baking which I absolutely loved and now everyone wants me to set up a tea shop which is as good a compliment as any!

Lifestyle: Lately on Instagram

I've been updating my Instagram a lot more lately and this is proof that it mainly consists of food and drinks.

Belated Mother's Day Afternoon Tea

This post has got later and later in the making but it's finally here. I didn't get to go home for Mother's Day as my Mum was picking me up 3 days later for my Easter Holidays. Somewhere I've been wanting to try for ages is Jameson's Cafe and Tea Room, it's a couple of miles away from where I live in Sheffield so is easiest accessed by car as I can't get a direct bus. Therefore I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go
last Wednesday.
It was extremely busy which really surprised me for a weekday but they managed to squeeze us in just before a huge group they had booked in for later in the afternoon.

Firstly we ordered some tea - Earl Grey for Mum and Green Tea with Moroccan Mint for me. I'm not a fan of standard black tea but I really love herbal teas. I loved all the chinaware and the decor really reminded me of my late grandparents house.

Blog Love #1

I'm a little fish in a huge pond of some amazing bloggers. I wanted to spread the love on some I've been really enjoying lately.

Excuse Me For A While I really enjoyed reading Ruth's post on the 30 day minimalism challenge that she recently completed as it really made me think about my priorities in life.

Lifestyle: The Larder, Leamington Spa

Last weekend I was home for the weekend, this tends to be at least every month for me as if you didn't know I have braces. It means I have to do the 100 mile trek home for a 10 minute appointment so hopefully I'll be rid of them soon. Obviously it's lovely to see my parents just a shame I can't choose exactly when I want to come home! So whilst I was home this time my mum and I decided to take a trip down memory lane for her and explore a new area for me.
My Mum did her degree at Warwick University (a while ago!) and so lived in Leamington Spa, I've never been and I love to look round new places.

We found a lovely coffee shop on Portland Street, a couple of minutes away from all the shops.
The Larder, a family business offering homemade bread, quiche, cake and more. There was so much choice we took a while to decide. We arrived at the right time however, as after we sat down a long queue began to form.

Travel: A Trip to Dublin Part 2

As promised here is what we got up to on the rest of our trip in Dublin. Even though we all hate beer, we thought we couldn't go to Dublin without trying Ireland's black liquid gold and where better than Guinness Storehouse. We practically followed a lorry transporting the good stuff all the way to the factory.
