Lil Miss Happy: Instagramming my life +

Hi everyone! Since university has finished, I've been working full time! Waking up at 6.30am and coming home at 6.30pm is definitely tough, although I definitely could never go back to being a student again! I'm ready to work hard and enter the real world :) 

Anyway, this post is long over due! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you will know that I have been posting lots of photos recently!

On Sunday the 3rd of June, I had afternoon tea with my mother at the London Mercure Hotel. I booked the afternoon tea through Groupon, where it cost £24 for two people.

Afternoon tea :)
Afternoon tea was amazing, and it was a great way to celebrate the Queen's jubilee - it is a fabulous British tradition! The tea was made to perfection, the scones were warm (which meant that the butter simply melted on it) and the strawberries were of the highest quality. I would definitely have Afternoon tea again, although not at the same place! When I asked the waiters for a second helping of strawberries (quite cheeky of me to be honest), they were adamant to give it to me! I was under the impression that afternoon tea involved unlimited sandwiches, cakes, and tea - how very wrong I was!

On Wednesday, it was my last day at university...
 My friends and I went to one of my favourite restaurants - called Ping Pong, which is a Chinese restaurant. The food is steamed and delicately prepared - making it healthy! I love the pleasant feeling I have after eating at Ping Pong (in other words, I feel full but not bloated or stuffed!). My favourite dishes are: spinach and mushroom dumplings, vegetable dumplings and crunchy golden vegetable dumplings! The cocktails are to die for too! I highly recommend you go there - you will love it!

I then had tea at one of my favourite cafes, Kipferl (in Angel Islington).. Kipferl is of Austrian/ Viennese origin. The tea always comes with a glass of cold water (they used to give a piece of chocolate before). I love the atmosphere inside - it really feels like you're out of London!

After tea, we did a spot of shopping and decided to eat dinner at Desperado's - my favourite Mexican restaurant! The restaurant has a gorgeous interior - you will definitely experience a touch of Mexico. The mock tails are super tasty too (and extremely calorific!). My skirt did feel a little tighter the next day,  so I made sure I worked out 4 times last week! I feel back to normal now!

Speaking of Mexican food, I am jetting off to Mexico for 2 weeks in  July! I'm super excited! I've always been interested in Mexico - the food, the people the culture!
