As it would be rude not to, we popped into Topshop and because I had no money but can't resist a sale I got a really cute necklace with two little birds on, I only wear gold jewellery because I constantly wear two real gold rings and i'm really glad Topshop sells a lot of gold coloured jewellery.
So finally the reason for the day was in fact to have a catch up and go for tea. We went to The Olde Young Tea house, a lovely little teashop which has just opened in Middlesbrough. It's vintage style with mismatched cups, saucers and teapots is really welcoming. And the music from the record player makes it a really relaxed place to be. It's also uber fashionable, ran by Carli-Jayne Mcnaught who last year graduated from Cleveland College of Art and Design with a Ba (Hons) in Fashion Enterprise, and spent the last year working in Saville Row in London!
You can choose from over sixty varieties of teas from around the world which are displayed in jars all along one wall, and either have a light lunch or a slice of whichever cake there is that day. Today it was Lemon and Poppyseed cake which i'm so glad about because it's my favourite and was delish! I washed it down with a mug of Green Tea. Also my favourite and I have to say it was the nicest Green Tea i've ever tasted! It had a slight flowery taste which was lovely. And it came in a Cath Kidston mug, which just added to the delights of the place. Here's a little taster for you if you're ever in the Middlesbrough area and fancy a cuppa and a slice of cake!
