Be Uplifted High Tea Fundraiser

Was invited to a lovely Hats and Heels High Tea on Saturday afternoon for
Be Uplifted fundraiser held at this lovely Cafe called Simply Moor-ish up at Woody Point.

What a lovely afternoon we had. Shannon came along with me, thought it would be a special mother n daughter time even though she ended up being bored LOL!!

All the ladies are so lovely and Angie at Simply Moorish is a delight and the service is fantastic not to mention the food!! YUM!!

Met a number of ladies along with others I already knew, was so lovely to catch up, great prizes given out and OMG!! I actually won best dressed LOL!! Yep, you read that right, me LOL!! However Shannon believes the flowers I won should have been hers considering I was wearing her headband and high heels (that I could hardly walk in might I add LOL!!).

Think I shocked the pants (or skirt I think she was wearing LOL!!) off Annette when she saw me walk through the door with Shannon. Here she was thinking I was going to wear pants and a blouse like I told her but I find a dress in my cupboard and totally shocked her LOL!! Haven't worn this dress in a longggggg time, not since I was working for Accountants anyway LOL!!

Anyway, it was a fabulous afternoon put on by all, thank you so much Be-Uplifted for my first ever High Tea. Can't wait for the next one.

Check out their site, to see more photos of the High Tea fundraiser, great cause!!

Here are a few photos to share with you today
Photos were taken by Annette Gearside of Be Uplifted

The beautiful table settings

Shannon and I all dolled up with our blingie headbands and high heel stilettos LOL!!

Giving Miss Shannon a Kiss, gosh just look at her face LOL!!

Of course she thought it was hilarious
The gorgeous flowers I received for being best dressed. My favourite colour too.

the shoes Shannon lent to me LOL!! one of the 2 pairs I bought her for her semi-formal LOL!! They don't look all that high in this pic but when I got home and took them off I still felt like I was walking on my tippy toes LOL!!
