Top 5 Things of the Week (July 15th – 21st)

21 Jul

#1 Afternoon Tea at The Park Lane Hotel for The Cake Awards


The inaugural Cake Awards were a wonderful celebration of what has to be one of the greatest sweet treats ever invented, and they even served up a wonderful Afternoon Tea as part of the occasion – delicious and fitting! The cake tier was superb but it’s fair to say that the entire selection of sweet and savoury treats was delectable.

#2 Lemon Collins at Bumpkin Notting Hill
This foam topped cocktail was stunning, refreshing and delicious! It’s my new favourite tipple for the summer.

#3 Moroccan Afternoon Tea at Momo


For an entire afternoon, I felt as though I was in the heart of Morocco, enjoying a mouthwatering array of aromatic and intricate flavours, in a luxurious Afternoon Tea at Momo in London. I was half expecting a stamp in my passport – but then I remembered that I hadn’t actually left London!

#4 Alexandra Palace 150th Birthday Celebration


Ally Pally is one of my favourite places in the UK and I was so excited to celebrate the venue’s 150th anniversary with family at their glorious fun day. The atmosphere, weather, live entertainment and Farmer’s Market were all fantastic!

#5 Strawberry Picking at Parkway Farm
It’s an annual tradition in my house to go to Parkway Farm near Hadley Wood to pick strawberries. Although we visit at other times of year for other fresh produce, my childhood memories of strawberry picking will always keep the farm dear in my heart. Its sweet, juicy strawberries are the best!
