The Hidden Lane Tearoom in Glasgow.....

I was recommended to try out this little place by a friend who lives and works in the area. She is aware of my penchant for all things tea related and as I was working in Glasgow this week I thought it would be rude not to go check it out!

The Hidden Lane Tearoom really does live up to the name and it took me a few minutes driving around and scouring the street for signposts before I finally stumbled across the location. Once located and food and beverages ordered I was able to take in my cosy surroundings.

The decor is very much cobbled together but it definitely adds charm and warmth to the place and anywhere that serves food and drink in vintage crockery is brilliant in my book!

I had a ham, cheese and tomato mayo sandwich and it was delicious. They use fresh local produce and the quality shines through. For a naughty treat I sampled one of their delightful homemade cupcakes, almost too pretty to eat, and had a good old pot of Tetley tea. (sometimes you just cant beat it!)

Overall a really lovely, friendly, cosy place to eat lunch. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you are in the area. For the address and more details check out the blog

P.S. They also cater for vintage hen parties and the vintage crockery is for sale too, cool huh!

Bit of a summery outfit but I actually put this together when we still had a bit of warmth in the air. Not quite sure what is happening with our old British summer time at the moment though as it feels more like Autumn as I sit and write this, wrapped up in a hoody, drinking a big cup of tea to keep warm! Who would have guessed it was August?? Bizarre. Oh well gives me a good excuse to get on with choosing my Autumn wardrobe. I need an excuse!

What are going to be your Autumn must haves?

On vacation...

So I've been awol for the last couple of months due to technology. I'm awaiting a brand new laptop which I'm purchasing for myself next month as a birthday treat. The computer I was using before was extremely old and I was getting increasingly frustrated with not being able to access certain blogs and leave messages or even reply to peoples lovely comments on here. I will be back with a bang next month and have loads I want to share and feature if you want to keep following.

In the meantime I have discovered the wonders of Twitter so if you're interested in my daily rambles on fashion you can follow me @modernmillyuk.

Hope all are well.
