D&G was great. Quite inspiring, so much plaid, very Bay City Rollers meets Little House on the Prairie. Another Hannah Almassy sighting. This Grazia girl is popular! Great treats, lots of little chocolate mousse pots and delicious Laduree macaroons to accompany a cup of tea – of course there is always champagne!

Selfridges is one of my favourite places to meet friends and go shopping! Shopping is something we all do; it’s an activity that seems so natural we don’t realize that shopping for pleasure rather than necessity was invented, and much of that has to do with Harry George Selfridge.
