Tea Time In Tadashi + Shabby Chic Teacup Candle DIY Inspiration

Edinburgh Scotland Tea Time It’s tea time! While on my amazing Hilton HHonors getaway we were treated to a traditional tea on the grounds of the DoubleTree by Hilton Dublane Hydro. Dressed in my Tadashi best, I spent the afternoon sipping tea, touring the historic property and photo shooting…. because what’s a tea party without a photo shoot?!? I’ll have a splash of smize with my tea, thankyouverymuch!

Thanks Jason Rowan for the fab photos!

Edinburgh Scotland Tea Time 2I have to admit I’m #TeamTea now. I actually haven’t had a cup of coffee since I’ve been back. I feel an official switch coming on. Someone alert my friends at Starbucks!

This navy peplum dress is part of the Tadashi GENIUS “travel-ready” collection. I stuffed this dress in my luggage and it arrived wrinkle free and ready to be worn. Who doesn’t love a stress free travel wardrobe?

Edinburgh Scotland Tea Time Teacup Candle DIY InsporationI’m currently obsessed with all things tea related! I just love the way they do tea in the United Kingdom. I’ve been eying these shabby chic teacup candle DIY projects for awhile now and the second I returned to the states I ran to Hobby Lobby (<- Heaven on earth!) and picked up all the candle making supplies I needed to make a candle. I’m currently filling up antique teacups with wax. Such a fun candle display and it makes the perfect gift!

  19. Pretty dress, nice fit too and it seems very comfortable. Your tea seems really inviting to have a sip, really wanna try to have one. Is it a flavored tea?
