My sister – Helena – and I spent yesterday in London together. We don’t often get to hang out as we don’t live very close anymore. So it was lovely. We were in London for a Very Special Mission. But that is for another post. Later.
After forcing our way through the Saturday crowds on Portobello Road we arrived at our destination. The Hummingbird Bakery (133 Portobello Road). I was given the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook for Christmas and decided I wanted to see what the cakes should taste like!
I chose a Red Velvet cupcake as I’d never had one and had read that the Bakery was famous for them! Helena went for a vanilla cupcake with yellow icing. They came packed in this gorgeous box! Perfect for keeping them in tip top condition as we zoomed off to our next destination on the tube!
Yesterday was my trench coat’s first proper out! (Christmas present from my lovely mummy!) And yes, that is the strap of my new bag!!
They were indeed VERY yummy!!
Next stop was an exhibition of photographs of Twiggy at the National Portrait Gallery. It’s not an enormous collection but it is just the right amount of culture when you’re in London for the day!!
Then we were off to Canary Wharf for the reason we had come to London! Check back later for all the gossip! Let me just say, if you’re an excerise-phobe (like me!) but dream of toned legs and bum be sure to check it out!
More soon. Love, SG
