Mayfield Lavender Farm, near London! an amazing place to visit during summer months with friends and family.

A few days ago, I and my family went to the Mayfield Lavender Farm near London. Lavender fields seem to have taken over Instagram recently, with all visitors hoping to get the chance of that perfect selfie!

Going to a lavender farm immerses all of the senses of all things Lavender. The aroma hangs in the air and the beautiful purple hue stretches out all around you!

Now, you can't go all the way to a Lavender farm without sampling the delicacies on offer at the cafe. In the steady sunshine, the Lavender frappuccino stood out.

Even as a uni student, I've managed to avoid needing the caffeine kick before lectures and exams - yet! Coffee for me is synonymous with catching up with friends. A quick text to see who is free to spend the next few hours chatting away. We love to find quirky coffee shops, trying different places each time.

However, when these coffees are so easy to recreate at home, you don't always need to go out. And a good old gossip can be done anywhere! 

My mum bought lavender syrup to take home. I asked her if she had made any plans to use it yet, and when she hadn't, I set about making the frappuccino.

The end result was splendid - smooth, silky ice cold coffee fragrant with lavender. (Can anyone give me any tips on how to steal the lavender syrup from the fridge without my mum seeing?)
