I love shopping. That’s a fact. However, at this time of year, the shops can get a little crazy even for me, and sometimes you just need to take a break, relax and remind yourself that shopping should be an enjoyable indulgence. That’s why you won’t find me going on a shopping trip at any time of year without pausing for a coffee and maybe a little cake treat, and if shopping at this time of year is extra crazy, I think your treat should be extra indulgent!
What could be better, then, than a festively themed afternoon tea at one of the city’s newest luxury hotels? Hotel La Tour is an independently owned 4 star hotel that is right next to the city’s shopping hot spots, a mere 5 minutes walk from the Bullring, and a quick stroll through the Pavilions (it’s also super handy for one of my favourite spots in Birmingham, the romantically retro Moor Street Station). I took my lovely friend and fellow blogger Fashion Mommy along to sample the new Christmas Afternoon Tea Menu.
