Patisserie Fur Elise - High Tea/Afternoon Tea

My girlfriends and I like to get together once a month to see each other and catch up over afternoon tea! We've attended Fairmont PAC Rim, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Shangri La and yesterday we went to Patisserie Fur Elise on Hamilton St in Vancouver (Yaletown area) and this is my favorite place out of the 4! It's beyond adorable, very classy and the least expensive ! My amazingly beautiful/fabulous/sweet (I could keep going lol) girlfriends Nikki, Cody and Tiffany introduced me to high tea a few months ago and I'm completely hooked ! Ladies if you haven't ever been, you must experience it with your girlfriends!!!! I'm so happy we make a point to go once a month, it's the perfect way to spend an afternoon with your favorite women!!

How adorable is the outside?!

Out of all 4 places we've tried, this place is the least expensive. Always a plus :)

The tea selection is very unique. I had the Latte Macchiato tea and it tasted just like coffee lol it was yummy

Seriously the decor!! So gorg

I want these tables and chairs in my house!

Two tiers of dessert and sandwiches!

The timer at the center of the table was brought with the tea and when the time is up, your tea is ready. Love that lol so different!

My favorite sandwich! Cucumber & Dill

Myself, Nikki, Tiffany and Cody <3

The to go box is adorable too! Everything about Patisserie is fabulous

What I ate on the drive home....

I went casual with no extensions and minimal makeup. Zara blouse, J Brand skinnies, Christian Louboutin Decollette pumps and Hermes belt.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll be sure to respond :)

Isabel Marant Sneakers!

Ever since I saw Beyonce's "Love On Top" video, I've become OBSESSED with the Isabel Marant wedge sneakers and I now need them in my life. Like desperately. So those, along with the Celine bag (I think I've narrowed it down to wanting the black phantom croc) are next on my wish list.

I'm partial to the black pair because of Beyonce lol but I do also love the beige pair and the beige and black combo. What color do you guys like the most??

Seriously, this bag and those shoes... heaven

What are your thoughts on the Marant's? I know some people love them and some think they're hideous lol I wasn't a fan when I first seen them but now I'm seriously lusting over them.

Celine Phantom or Mini??

I've recently become obsessed with celine bags and decided I need one in my collection. Now the question is, mini or phantom? Beige or black... Hmmm does anyone own one? If so, worth the money?

My Favorite Lipsticks/Glosses

I love trying new beauty products In hopes to find new favorites. Currently I have a few new favorites and a few old favorites I've had for years and repurchase every time I'm out.

Mac lipsticks. They're always my go to lipstick. The formula is amazing and not many other brands can beat Mac's price either. Even lipstick's from the drug store range between $8-$15 and I believe Mac's go for $17.50. I usually never pay for any lipstick at Mac though because i always return my empties and get a free lipstick for them :) (you can get a lipstick, lipgloss or eyeshadow if you redeem 6 empty Mac containers)

My favorite colors which I always repurchase are classic nudes and soft pinks. Creme De Nude is my all time favorite nude! Creme Cup (soft pink) Honeylove (darker nude) Angel (soft pink/nude) Diva (dark red)

My all time favorite lipgloss is by Mac. The color is called "Wildly lush" and it goes perfect over any nude color. The other lipgloss I use often is by Nars "Turkish Delight" although I don't like the taste but this baby pink color is gorgeous and I've yet to find a perfect baby pink color elsewhere. The price is also a little ridiculous. I believe it's around $32? In my opinion that's too much for a lipgloss!

Ysl rouge volupte lipstick in nude 02. The smell, the taste and formula is amazing! Will definitely buy different colors in this lipstick!

Nyx extreme lip cream in absolute red and Nyx lipstick in strawberry milk. Nyx is an excellent drug store lipstick and the only brand I use from the drugstore. The quality is amazing for the price!

Occ lip tar in the color "Hush" I ADORE the liptar formula and intend on purchasing it in every color lol obsessed!

I haven't tried Bobbi Brown, Chanel or Nar's lipstick so those will be next on my list.

Let me know your favorite lip products!
