[ Post in collaboration with Whittard of Chelsea ]
April 26th 2021 – The day that Scotland is gaining a wee bit of normality!
With many of our pubs, restaurants and ‘non-essential’ shops re-opening, it’s exciting to think about socialising with friends and family again. Honestly though, I think I’m more excited at being able to do some leisurely mooching around the shops and spending money that I absolutely don’t need to! One shop that is perfect for a mooch around is Whittard of Chelsea.
Although Aberdeen doesn’t have a Whittard of Chelsea store anymore, the lucky residents of Edinburgh and Glasgow will be able to get their Tea, Coffee & Hot Chocolate needs met from today!
