We met up at the iconic Fortnum & Mason for lunch and over indulged in 'The Parlour'; a candy coloured retro inspired cafe designed by the late interior designer David Collins as part of the stores refurbishment in 2007.
Of course being a newly wed my sister created her own sundae named after her married surname! I opted for one of the signature Rose and Violet sundaes with edible rose petals and candy floss, see below, but had to admit defeat half way through as it was so huge.
Whilst we're both big kids at heart I must admit it was a great venue for children and will definitely revisit with my offspring in tow; so good were the colouring placemats I asked to take two home!
There has been a lot of chatter about Emma Cline's new novel 'The Girls', see left, so I bought a signed by the author copy there whilst introducing my sister to the delights that are Rorys Story Cubes, one of my go to birthday presents for under 8's!
We then wandered to Regent Street for some retail therapy and headed to Massimo Dutti to see what their sale had to offer.
I ended up buying four pieces, an ivory cotton blazer to replace an old Zara one which has now discoloured, an ivory 100% silk blouse with pockets, an investment purchase and a wardrobe staple, then two items for holiday; a cotton and silk knit sweater for cooler evenings and some raw hem viscose culottes, which are another easy wear holiday evening option.
They really do know how to put on a great performance and the laser light show was enhanced by the sun setting down on a packed stadium, accompanied by my all time favourite Coldplay song 'Yellow'!
