I met with Gemma D from Musings Of A Gem, Gemma H from Little Gem's Diary and Juli from Pretty Little Jewels Jewels. We are all of a similar age, and have lots in common including names Gem's & Jewels (yes it did get a little confusing to start with but after a while it didn't seem to cause any problems), we all have our names in our blog titles :), we all love crafting & baking, shopping, afternoon tea and lots more. So what are we to do on a sunny afternoon in London, I'll let the photos show you.
We stopped off at Liberty. I had never been here before and had seen it on a few blogs. Of course after seeing a building like this, who wouldn't want to go there.
Everything about it was just beautiful.
Even the flower stall outside.
Of course we had to use this as an opportunity for the first group shot of us all together, courtesy of Gem D's boyfriend, he became our personal photographer for the day bless him, he didn't seem to mind though which was lucky for us really.

We had booked a table at SoHo's Secret Tea Room, what better way to spend a Sunday Afternoon than with afternoon tea?
The food was lovely, and the portions were pretty big.
How sweet is that little cupcake.

The weather was just glorious yesterday and so we made the most of the sunshine after lunch and walked to a little park around the corner for some more photo opportunities.

Then it was off to Oxford Street before heading home.

It really was such an amazing and lovely day, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed myself, I feel like I have made some great friends in the three of them and I can't wait to meet up again.
It is funny I was a little nervous on the morning of the meet. It felt strange meeting these people that I know and have read so much about, yet I have never seen them up close and never heard them speak, however after being with them for around five minutes I knew the day would be a good one, we all got on so well it was as if we had been friends for years and with any luck we will be friends for many years to come.
Thank you ladies for such a great day.
Lots of Love
