Mad Hatter's Tea at The Sanderson Hotel

Sunday, 24 September 2017
Last month I took a little trip into central London to spend the day with two of my favourite youtube girls & close friends Brogan & Dionne.

It was our annual meet up & it happened to fall near mine & Dionne’s birthday so we decided to make it special with afternoon tea. Now I love afternoon tea & if anyone suggests it I’m going to be the first to agree. After looking at so many different afternoon tea places in London we all agreed on The Sanderson’s MadHatter Tea. This was something none of us had done before but all loved the look of it in the past so it was perfect for our special day out.

On arrival to the hotel we was greeted by a lovely man at the door & pointed in the direction of where the tea was. We waited a few minutes for our table to be ready as we arrived early but this gave up time to film the surroundings.

Once we were shown to our table we were all surprise as we was given a little hidden table surrounded by plants & no one could see us which was lovely a it meant we were able to get our cameras out loads without disturbing people around us.

The menu was presented in a little old book which really added to the theming of the afternoon tea.


The menu consisted of

MAD HATTER'S AFTERNOON TEA

moked salmon Scotch quails egg with caviar and cream cheese

This cost £48 per person or £58/£65 depending on your choice of champagne


I loved everything about this tea. The theming was amazing, with the plates & tea set as well as the jewellery box filled with sugar. I loved the playing cards that told you all about their speciality teas which were amazing might I add. All the staff are friendly & welcoming. They made our day even more special by wishing me & Dionne a happy birthday with little cakes.


I really think this tea was worth the money & I would recommend it if you’re looking for something different to do in central London. 


Why I've Been MIA

Saturday, 23 September 2017
Well where do I start. I haven’t posted in nearly a year & what a year it’s been. 2017 hasn’t been the best year for me & my channel, this blog & some many other things have taken a backseat because of this.
Let’s start at the beginning, in February this year my Nan sadly lost her battle with cancer & it was a really tough time for my family. This was my third grandparent I had to say goodbye to & it’s made me cherish my grandad even more. It wasn’t the best start t the year with this, work & a relationship all not going well.

In March the worst thing happened to my little family. We lost our little fur baby Maddie. This was worst the thing that happened this year & it still hurts to this day. We sadly had to put Maddie down as we found out she had cancer & it was too late to try & fight it. I say this was the worst thing to happen as it was so unexpected for my family. She got bad really quickly & it happened within a matter of days. Losing a pet has really made me rethink getting another in the future.

Now the last big thing that happened to me this year was becoming single. Yes I’m single again. Am I sad about this, no not one bit. There are many reasons why I’m not sad about being single again. Firstly I’m the happiest I’ve been in a very long time & that’s a great feeling. I no longer feel like I’m not good enough or a boring waste of space. I now love myself more, I don’t have as many issues with my body or the way I look & it’s amazing. I never thought my relationship was that bad for me till I got dumped & was happy about it.
Now that does sound bad but I kept a lot to myself about that relationship & it wasn’t perfect at all. I’ve also started dating again which is weird & fun at the same time, I’ve had some weird tinder experiences & some good dates.

We are nearing the end of September & it’s getting closer to 2018 every day. My plans for the rest of the year are to continue to focus of me & working on myself. I want to work on this blog & my channels as they have been neglected so much. I’m also going to continue dating & see what happens with that, who knows I might have someone to kiss at the stroke of midnight on new year’s eve (now I’m starting to sound like a fairy tale haha)

I’m going to make 2018 my year.
