Afternoon Tea in Edinburgh with Bloggers

Happy Friday! I have no idea where time has gone, but I’ve been meaning to share this since last November. In September and October, I was mentioning on a few London bloggers site that I was getting super envious of their blogger events and meet ups. And in one of the comments Amanda mentioned that maybe I should try to create my own. Well I did try!

I started to try to arrange a blogger meet up in Edinburgh – but it ended up being a bit difficult since I don’t carry much weight. Obviously haha. I turned to bloggers I knew and new bloggers I found, and though many were interested, it turns out that only two made it on the day we had planned. 

I had a lovely afternoon tea with two of my favourite Edinburgh-based bloggers : Mel from Everything I Wished For and Jordan from Beer Time with Wagner

We went to Mimi’s Bakehouse in Leith. It is one of those amazing places to grab a cuppa and a sweet treat! I highly recommend their afternoon tea as it was delicious! 

We also ended up having a blast! Always trust fellow expats and bloggers to have fun and have a lot to discuss! It was also hilarious when we all whipped out our cameras – people around us took notice and probably thought we were weird – if only they knew we were bloggers!

I’m a big fan of scones and theirs were very good! I ordered vegetarian (eggs) sandwiches all around and they were delicious. The treats were a bit too sugary for my own taste. We all struggled to finish them actually – but they were great nonetheless! The ambiance was a bit intense, as it was highly busy with everyone chatting loudly, but it felt like a great effervescent place to meet fellow bloggers and chat away for hours.
