High Tea @ The Ritz Carlton & Shopping Fun!

High Tea @ The Ritz :)


Egg, Smoked Salmon, Foie Gras & Pear, Chicken in Puff Pasty & Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Heart this pretty momma to be!!! :)

(Note to self stop taking pictures under harsh recessed lighting. -___-  Always best to take pictures in natural light or if indoors.. near a window NEAR natural light OR with lighting lit BEHIND you.. not in front or on top of you because it can cast shadows on your face and make you look old and angry.. case in point!!!!!!!!)

The two teas we chose were "Tuileries Garden in Paris" and "Night in Versailles" 

They sounded so pretty we just HAD to order them!!  

I'm generally a traditionalist when I have afternoon tea I always order something "typical" like Darjeeling or English Breakfast.. but come on with names like "Tuileries Garden in Paris" and "Night in Versailles".   


Trying to figure out this metal contraption that you're suppose to use to squeeze lemon out of.... honestly it was so difficult to use it's just easier to use your hands to squeeze the lemon HAHAHAHA.

I brought her some choco goodies from Germany :)

Sadly I was unable to attend her actual baby shower because I was in Germany.. I literally missed it by like 2 days.. but it's ok it just meant that we "had" to get together for afternoon tea. LOL. At the Ritz no less hahah!

So time to open my Baby Shower gift to her :)!

I love watching people's excitement when tearing open a gift :)

Gives me the warm fuzzies!



Angelcare Baby Monitor!

Pistachio Madelines, Chocolate covered Strawberries, Opera Cake, Fruit Tart w/ Custard, Chocolate Mousse, Lemon Frosting Cookies, Shortbread, Black Current Scones

Nom Nom Nom!

Their Black Current scones were sooooo so delicious and they came out piping hot too!!!

Sally in all her baby bump glory!!!

She's in her 3rd trimester and I swear when she sitting down or turns around you wouldn't even know she was pregnant lol!

We got so excited because I felt the baby "kicking" it's actually more like a rolling wave feeling and less like a "kick" that I had imagined!!

So amazing!

The Ritz here happens to connected to a mall that houses all sorts of designer stores.  Go figure!  So in an attempt to walk off (some) of the rich desserts (teheheh) we had from tea we headed over to the mall side.

Popped into the Gucci store and saw this AMAZEBALLS over sized patent clutch.

OMG love everything about it.

The size.. the color.. the giant gold horsebit hardware.



How cute is this black patent mini monogram Gucci bag?

And how cute is it with the soon-to-be-momma?! :p

Push present perhaps?? LOL!


Saw these at C. Wonder.. omg C. Wonder has the cutest most adorable things!! 

These "hot dog" smoking slippers are TOTES adorbs!

Popped into the Chanel store and discovered this amazingly sparkly gorgeous Swarovski crystal encrusted mini Chanel flap! 

It retails for $20,000!!!

It's seriously so blindingly sparkly!

Black lace bunny ears!


So perfect for fall/winter.. wanted to take this home with me so badly.

However it was almost $30 bucks and I just thought that was too ridiculous to spend on a headband.. especially one made out of lace (that I would most likely tear after just one time.. considering how un-delicate I am with things hahaha.)

But it's sooo so cute *SQUEAL*

Hoping to be able to find a much more affordable option online :p

Even though I was in Germany during my friends Baby Shower but she was thoughtful enough to save me a whole bunch of favors and treats from the shower.

She made the fondant cupcake shaped like a little baby boy by hand!!  So cute right?!  She meticulously hand cut all the little pieces to create the eyes, ears, nose, pacifier ect!

And how adorable are the white chocolate sea foam duckies they had white choco crunches in them!!!!  

She made all the favors seriously amazing right?!

Fur daughter tryin' to get in on the action lololol!!

It was fun because we just had things like beef noodles and pork chop rice, but I want to explore more next time we are there. I want to have high tea and all those ridiculous looking tea sandwiches!

  16. You and soon-to-be momma look really gorgeous. I always love seeing tea parties, though I'm not much of a tea but more of a coffee fan. And those hotdog shoes are soooo cute, agree! :D


  17. Everything looks so delicious, especially those pistachio madelines! Those smoking slippers are super cute too.

    I really like those bunny ears, but after seeing how they retail for $30, I don't think I'll be getting them. Too bad because they're pretty perfect looking. D:

  18. those food is so cute and look delicious, love your bag too :D


  19. I couldn't find the comment form and had to refresh your page a few times. I love love love tea food! Simply love it especially when enjoyed with gal pals. I'm also boring with my tea and love English Breakfast, Earl Grey and mint tea. But like you say, come on. With names like "Tuileries Garden in Paris" and "Night in Versailles", I would also try those. How did they taste by the way?

    That's so generous of you to gift your mummy-to-be friend the baby monitor. I'm sure she appreciates it. And the baby shower treats she brought back for you looks so pretty. I wouldn't bear to eat them up.

    The Chanel crystal bag is insane! I would rather spend the money on other Chanel items. I like how your furkid photobombed the goodies.

    Hey Lisa, There are periods of time when I wore my coloured contacts a lot -- sometimes when I'm travelling (vain pot wanna look good in photos... hahaha), during some festive seasons and special occasions. The reason being, my coloured contacts are 1-month disposable so I would try to make full use of a coloured pair once I open it.

    Coloured contacts are not made to be worn on a daily basis so you have to give your eyes some rest in between by wearing normal clear contacts or glasses. There are also daily disposable coloured ones though those available here dont have such variety and pretty shades of colours. Coloured contacts are a lot less breathable due to more layers sealing in the colours.

    If your eyes are super sensitive, you might wanna try Acuvue TruEye. A few months after my cornea infection, my eyes could not even take clear contact lens and so the optometrist suggested TryEye. It is the most breathable with most water content out of many in the market. I had a second opinion with the eye specialist who backed this up too.

    I use FreshKon as I personally feel this brand of coloured lens causes the least irritation. I know many beauty bloggers love using Geo lens and other Jap, Korean, TW lens bought online. They are very much cheaper but I'm just wary of fakes around. My last cornea infection was after I wore a pair bought from a reputable online store.

    Sorry, I took some time to get back to you. Hope this helps! =)

  20. Wow, amazing! Love it :)
    looks soo delish!
