Afternoon tea at The Berkeley with Jimmy Choo

Just a quick little post from me today as I've been so, so busy - suddenly panicked and realised I hadn't blogged - which is so annoying as I've been doing some really cool stuff recently (note to self: must do better)... Any way; ever so often being a blogger is ace, Wednesday was one of those days. Myself and some of my blogger friends (Anneli, Emma, Briony, Shini, Monica and Kit, to be precise) were all treated an afternoon of everything I love; cake, champagne, and more cake.

And I don't just mean any cake, I mean tea at the lovely Berkeley hotel in London, shaped as shoes and handbags - plate after plate for hours on end. You can see my gobsmacked face in the above picture. I was in my element (even more so once the champagne kicked in).

The Berkeley's Pret A Portea has been running for some time, but their ingenious collaboration with Jimmy Choo continues until the 27th of October.  The atmosphere was really, really chilled - I expected it to feel a lot more pretentious as their website strictly says no vests, sportswear or ripped jeans (i.e: quite a bit of my wardrobe) - but it's got the balance entirely right. It felt special, and like you should make an effort - but not stifling, and was very relaxed.

I wore some lovely Jimmy Choo heels for the occasion, my new (best purchase ever) grey jumper from ASOS which I now want in every single damn colour (outfit post to follow, we stayed chatting for so long that it was dark and rainy by the time we left) and my failsafe black AG skinny jeans.

If you've got a friend or family member's birthday coming up, or just fancy treating yourself - please do so here. It's so easy to forget when you live in London quite how great your city is and how much it has to offer. This experience was a fantastic reminder!

Thank you to Jimmy Choo and The Berkeley for being amazing hosts!

This was SO much fun! Wish I didn't have to dash off so early (or that I could have scooped an entire tray of cake into my handbag).
