Fortnum & Mason Favourites


fortnum-and-mason

 

I have come across a few favourites……. Well, ALOT actually……

I couldn’t help myself but google Fortnum and Mason today. It has been a dream the past couple of years to visit London, and enjoy a high-tea there. It is on my LIST! I haven’t visited London just yet, but I know that I will get there one day! There is something about that place, coffee shops, museums, art galleries, bookshops, and so much MORE!!!! I enjoy watching “Ladies of London” every now and then too.

Find here a number of items I found on F&M’s website – ROYAL COLLECTION

I am in LOVE with this pink mug, Halycon Days Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Mug in Pink

QUEENS 90th PINK MUG

Halycon Days is a London brand. It is an English fine bone china mug that is finished with an intricate trellis design. Featuring a wreath of golden flourishes that frames the inscription ‘In Celebration of the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 21st April 2016’, this mug makes a wonderful addition to any home.

I am LOVING the GIFT section. They have a WIDE range of Bath and Body, Skincare, Handbags and purses, fragrances, jewellery, scarfs, flowers, tea, china and silverware, and hampers! There is so much to shop!!!!

There are TWO kinds of tea that I want to buy.

Queen Anne Blend Tea

Created in 1907, this popular blend is named after the monarch who was on the throne in the year that Fortnum & Mason actually began. The smooth blend of carefully selected TGFOP Assam and Ceylon FBOP teas produces a strong, smooth tea that is refreshing at any time of day.

QUEEN ANNE BLEND TEA

 

Royal Blend Tea

This luxury tea is classic. It has ceylon and assam. It was actually first blended for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902, Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, almost honey-like flavour.

ROYAL BLEND TEA

There is also a tea towel that I absolutely ADORE!

It is ‘Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Tea Towel

This beautifully designed tea towel commemorates The Queen’s 90th in true royal fashion. Made in the UK from 100% cotton, this tea towel is finished in royal blue and features an inscription celebrating the UK’s longest reigning monarch.

and of course, I want to get a bag that represents……

F&M BAG

They even have a lunch box you can buy!!!!

So that’s just a few to add to my ever-growing list on what to buy. I think that when I DO get to London, I will probably need just about ten grand!!!!

Harrods and Selfridges here I come!!!! World-class shopping is EVERYTHING.

Harrods has Chanel Cosmetics such as the Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favourite CHANEL foundation.

Pilgrimage to Perth


20160123-181357.jpg

When my Dad mentioned that we were spending the long weekend in Perth I was over loaded with excitement. We were in Mandurah not too long ago and now we are going on another holiday! Travel is one of the main things I wanted to do this year, even though I was brought up in Perth, there is still a lot I haven’t seen & we go down there every few months seeing it is the closest major city to us.

Sometimes I feel I have been in the country for too long, but what to do!

We arrived at the motel, Starwest Apartments Alderney on Hay around 1pm, Saturday, and it was fairly adequate with 2 bedrooms and open space with a nice sized kitchen and a lounge room with television. Quite a comfortable place, cute and modern.

I didn’t watch television at all!! I just enjoyed the stay and most of all the views from the balcony! We stayed right in the heart of Perth CBD with excellent services and facilities. Summer fun! There was a pool but never got round to the time for it!

On Saturday, Garden City in Booragoon was our first stop, like always! And Zara and Bardot were the main places we shopped. I didn’t buy anything but today I got a lovely bracelet from a little boutique shop called “Stella Rose” which is situated in Mount Hawthorn. The lady that served us, Jenny was really lovely, and complimented my sister a lot when trying on clothes. The bracelet is so feminine and is very special to me seeing that Mum bought it for me. Something special to have and to hold.

We also went into a little bookshop and I loved the travel section. From New York, to London, it had EVERYTHING! And every single bit of information on every city in the world! I wanted to buy “Melbourne”, but from living there I feel I know enough about the place!

I bought a new book, “The lost Tudor Princess”. I can’t wait to get stuck into it when I finish A Refuge at Highland Hall. It’s not in my current to read list for 2016, but it just looked too intriguing to not to buy!!! It looks like my cup of tea! If you love books, refer to my previous post for a selection of novels and such.

I didn’t go into the actual mall this time but we drove through the city for fun!!! Checking out different suburbs of the town……. It made me miss city life! Just a bit!

Travel is still on my list, but while I’m based in Merredin I want to continue on with studies, as it is quite important to me at this stage in life! I have so many things I want to achieve in life, and finding and creating my life whilst in Merredin is an adventure! Setting goals for travel or anything else in life sets the tone for your life!!! For example, If writing a book is a dream, set small achievable goals weekly and set time aside to write. You will feel like you’re getting somewhere!!!

I hope the same for you wherever you are! Adventures here we come!
