Tally ho! Cheerio! How's this world tour of treats treating you? Brilliant! I've got more. I've never been to London, though I do fancy myself a bit of an Anglophile (one who kind of adopts British mannerisms and adores all things English). I got up early to watch Princess Diana marry Prince Charles back when I was a girl and yes, about a year ago, I totally watched the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William. Twice. I often use English curse words and really, doesn't everything sound better with an English accent (or with David Beckham talking about it)?
So, here are a few treats for you to indulge in, when you feel al little wonky about not jetting to distant (or even nearby lands) for vacation. Think about how you are saving money, while you add a royal English touch to our day.
-- Fix yourself a cup of delightful tea. They have this down to a science over in England. One of my favorite blends is Lady Gray, but my mum, er, mom prefers English Breakfast. Maybe treat yourself to a new teacup - better yet, have a real tea party with your daughter.
-- Keep calm and carry on. This phrase is popping up everywhere. Based on the posters that were used in Britain during the Second World War to boost the spirits of the public. Why not boost your own mood every day? Check out this cute pendant necklace or tote bag.
-- Channel your inner Kate (Middleton). The someday queen definitely has a great sense of style. Adopt a few pieces into your wardrobe. A classic wrap dress that accentuates your waist, a blazer paired slim jeans, the trench coat all are favorites of our gal Kate.
-- Read some Paddington Bear books. That little bear with the yellow rain hat was born over in England. His cute stories have lasted the test of time for a reason. Have you shared them with your kids yet?
-- See some of our favorite English men with some fun English-inspired movies. Take your pick of these lovely lads and curl up with some popcorn and enjoy. Think any from the James Bond franchise or the essential Hugh Grant flicks like Nottington Hill, Bridget Jones Diary or Four Weddings and a Funeral.
