In light of recent current events, I almost forgot a royal wedding occurred on Friday! I didn't stay up late to watch but did catch most of the recaps later. I think Kate looked beautiful and really loved her dress. My favorite part is probably a toss up between Will and Kate cruising out of Buckingham Palace in the Aston Martin convertible and seeing the little niece covering her ears and looking generally displeased during the smooches on the balcony. :)
To celebrate the Royal Wedding, I attended a tea party in San Francisco held by one of my favorite beauty sites, Beautylish. If you are not familiar with the site, I highly recommend checking it out! It's basically a beauty-centric social networking site where you can find/contribute beauty-related articles, product reviews, tips, video tutorials, etc and, of course, interact with your fellow beauty junkies. You can find me on Beautylish here.
Our little tea party was held at Dartealing Lounge - my first time to this super cute place!
See - isn't it darling? I love all the mismatched decor!
My place setting:
They had dozens of teas to choose from! We were a bit overwhelmed when we saw the menu because everything sounded so good. Shown here is the "Pinky Minky" tea :)
And of course, the three tiered tray of sandwiches:
You gotta have crumpets (or scones to me, haha) and clotted cream :)
And to top the lovely afternoon off - mimosas!
Met some great ladies!
We even got cute little gift bags with a Beautylish T-shirt and a lip gloss :) The lip gloss is from a London-based brand and the back of it read, "No More Waity, Katie" :-O LOL!
Thank you so much, Beautylish, for a lovely (and tasty!) afternoon! It was so much fun enjoying teatime and chatting about Will & Kate's wedding with so many awesome ladies such as style bloggers Britt and Whit, http://www.brittandwhit.com, and Jasmine who has awesome hair and makeup tutorials at http://www.youtube.com/jazziebabycakes. Definitely some fun stuff there! :)
