Nothing like a scone (or three) and a cup of tea!

I know, I know it’s Autumn now – but please let me post a few more summery posts! There’s no way you’ll catch me with my legs out like this for another 6 months but the presence of scones and tea is transitional so it’s fiiine!

Welcome along to The Tea Rooms on Stoke Newington road (a lovely yummymummyish area of London with a village vibe, packed with tearooms and gift shops) where I met the creator of new indie girly label Mod Dolly. I’d heard a little about the brand floating on the internet, and was pleasantly surprised to see my beautiful friend Liv looking ethereal through Wish Magazine photographer Kitty Gallannaugh‘s lens in my email invite! Sadly the two girls couldn’t make it but I had good company in my French cousin Lorene, a lovely French speaking Blogger (we were all piercing the air by gossiping in our native tongue!) and of course the admirable Amy who had put together the beautiful lookbook.

Amy’s Mod Dolly site is adorable, offering her own hand made playsuits and dresses as well as reworked, vintage and indie brand pieces (I love this playsuit!) – perfect for those of you who love Wish Magazine! I was impressed to chat to someone my age who had taken the leap to start her own little business – it was inspiring and I was very thankful for all the treats she put on for us – Good luck Amy! Thank you Kristabel for the photos.

    It’s late…but now I desperately want some tea and scones! You look lovely in your adorable pink outfit and yay, Liv looks lovely too!

    Lucy, I’ve had a not so brilliant day but just scrolling through your words and photos has made me smile and set me on the road to cheering up! You rock a playsuit like no other blogger and I’m totally beguiled by that tearoom – the stunning jars with all those beautiful blends of tea look blissful 🙂

    Completely inspired by Amy’s talent and her bravery at starting her own business too – I was nervous just to open my Etsy shop yet there she is designing, creating and sharing it with the world. Definite inspiration 🙂
