Tea for Two

This weekend I met up with my sister (snowystylista) for a cuppa and a chinwag in Rochester, for those who don't know her blog she is about to leave to start a new life in The Alps and her move date is getting ever closer, I can't believe it is less than 3 months away.

I snapped her "street style" as we met. First off we popped into a little deli/cafe to share a delicious cheese plate and I had a glass of yummy kentish apple juice. We were going to order dessert but it took soo long to get service we decided to wander down the high street and try somewhere else. 

Next we went to Rochester Coffee Co. a place I have been wanting to try for ages, next time we are definitely going to have to try their signature afternoon tea! We opted for a slice of carrot cake each and I had a cup of the most delish Fortnum & Mason Afternoon tea, seriously I was in heaven! After lounging on their super comfy leather couches for probably longer than we should of we left to have a browse some shops before we went home, unfortunately my favourite antique store was closed by this time, last visit I scored a victorian bolero for £15! 

We always go to the same card shop which has such a lovely selection of birthday and occasion cards, to stock up. Whilst there I spotted these fab vogue cards featuring early 70s fashions, and we had a giggle at the animal rockstar selection, ad I'm not ashamed to say that the Snoop Doggy Dog one had to come home with me, oh and of course I couldn't leave out the Aladdin Sane Guinea Pig could I!? 

I had such a lovely afternoon, we both had a good old moan and she made me laugh with her press up man story (see her blog for more). I'm going to miss her ever so much! 

(E - I hope you didn't get a parking ticket!)
