Shoes, bags and clothes yet bubbles still flow!

Ooooooooo this afternoon tea treat had been on my to do list for almost as long as the Queen had been in reign!   As I headed to Hyde Park corner I was surprised to find I was among the masses….  Phew, I was relieved to discover they weren’t all heading to The Berkeley!   They were off for adrenaline kicks at Winter Wonderland.

Cloak & Dagger…. Sketch

A magical kingdom of decadence, vibrancy, intrigue and bubbles – What’s not to like about Sketch?

Whilst not long ago I spent an impromptu afternoon supping bubbles and sweet cream treats in the … Continue reading Cloak & Dagger…. Sketch

Sexy Fish – The foam peaks of Dai Kirin

What a Friday night!  I promised earlier to give you the low-down – now I’ve recovered, here’s a sneaky peek, I popped to this little hangout in Mayfair….
