#AfternoonTeaWeekChallenge11th August: Mini Afternoon Tea Say hello to the rest of the afternoon tea nutters out there and enjoy an elevenses or a early afternoon indulgence over a book, bath or some other relaxing and inventive way to enjoy afternoon tea. It may just be a cupcake and your favourite brew, show us your style. 12th August: Etiquette of Afternoon Tea Do you enjoy afternoon tea, being the perfect host and the more traditional ways to eat your scone or drink your tea?

It's been one FULL on weekend, full of inspiration when it comes to blogging & social media as well as an exciting opportunity to meet 30 passionate bloggers and I've made plenty of new friendships over the last 3 or 4 days - it's been an amazing experience.
I can't recount everything I've learnt right now, there is so much to take in, I've actually had to take a day out just to breath and gather my thoughts - it's been more overwhelming that I had imagined it might be. Instagram also got a hammering, I don't think I've used it so much in a while, I've become addicted once again - oh dear!
That's no bad thing, I must say - I've got huge plans and very itchy feet now that I'm a free woman... I'm my own boss and I have dreams and thoughts about travelling all over the place, I have a need and it must be fulfilled.
Now to just figure out how to do this and start seeing some of the world... I need to leave my little "Cambridge Bubble" and experience a new lifestyle. In the meantime, I leave you with some pictures of a fantastic weekend at The Blogcademy in London!
Where to first?!...
