The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake

7 Nov

So this weekend past I was in London.

I was down to see my sister’s play,
do some work and have belated birthday fun.

Here’s this weekend in pictures,
including the most amazing
vegan Ferrero Rocher cupcake.

Yup, with this weekend,
London was really spoiling us!

bought from the amazing Ms Cupcakes.
(I found this recipe for non Vegan ones
if anyone fancies making me them too!)

which was rather delightful too!
drinkshopdo The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake A birthday trip to Drink Shop Do for afternoon tea. (This was
after a session of hot yoga so cake was more than deserved!)
afternoontea convopieces The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake We had proper afternoon tea for the girls…
and man’s afternoon tea for the boys:
beer, pies, scotch eggs and pickled onions!

camera convopieces The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake I also slightly fell in love with this camera illustration
by faiiint… I want this camera in real life!

teapots convopieces The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake And how I managed to leave without purchasing
this yellow teapot is a bit of a mystery.
I did buy myself a badge though I’m not a total martyr!
 The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcakeWe stayed at this amazing little hotel,
very exclusive, not very well-known
filled with old wartime prints
Otherwise known as my sis’s new flat!
 The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcakeThis was my favourite print and it seemed to go
perfectly with one of my birthday presents…
my fake fur fox stole!

I wore my stole all Saturday…
It was so cosy – and it did seem to make people smile!

bread The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake On Sunday, we went to Bread Etcetera for breakfast.
They have little toasters on each table
for you to make your own toast. Yum!

and went to see the John Martin exhibit
at Tate Britain which ended with a light and sound show!
Brilliant, bombastic and lightening bolt-tastic!

aisfor The one with the Ferrero Rocher cupcake It was A for Awesome… ok this isn’t John Martin’s work
but Paul Thurlby‘s illustrated alphabet (which I saw in the shop)
but it’s just gorgeous… especially the E!

(Thankfully not Home Sweet Homicide!)

Of course after a weekend like that,
I could do with another weekend now.
And I may have to lay off the cake for a while!
Happy Monday everyone xx

P.S. If you were the lovely girl who said hello at Drink Shop Do,
thank you for your kind words and sorry if I was a little bashful!
