It’s important to take time out to de-stress throughout this busy season, taking a break from organising Christmas, working and partying hard.
CarrieMe suggest chilling out and re-charging your battery’s over a lazy lunch date with friends - our favourite type are the post-lunch, pre-dinner treat of ‘High Tea’. A great way to warm us up while it’s so cold outside! We’re huge fans of this indulgent pastime, we can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon relaxing than sipping on refreshing and tasty teas with fancy French patisseries.

Afternoon teas in London are very popular, and you really are spoilt for choice of venues. After an unusual, quirky place with vintage mismatched teacups or a luxury high end bone china type of service? For luxury, try The Dorchester hotel. A beautiful restaurant with marble piers and opulent chairs. The Dorchester include Champagne with their afternoon tea.
For someone crazy about fashion, the ‘Prêt-à-Portea’ afternoon tea at The Berkeley is a real treat. Cakes and nibbles inspired by the latest highend fashion pieces. For example one cake named – ‘The Alexander McQueen whimsical yellow honeycomb cream oversized dress topped with marzipan bee’ Very cool!
For something affordable, but equally enjoyable try ‘Choccywoccydoodah’. This expert chocolatier has a small, quirky diner which does yummy teas and other delights like brownies, and chocolate dipping platters.

We attach our bag to the CarrieMe hook, and our bag hands elegantly from the table right next to us for whenever we need it.
