I Love London

Easter weekend my husband and I took a trip into London. I love visiting the Big Smoke, so much fun people watching, finding new cafes and restaurants, shopping and so much more. We ate at Le Pain Quotidien, they do nice coffees, bake lovely bread and make some very healthy food and not so healthy, it is also next to Liberty .

I am very happy with how this pic turned out. I took it quickly.

After our bellies were full we walked to Covent Garden, there is always something going on in the square, this time a Easter Egg display of 104 eggs, painted by designers and children all in aid of Action for Children. As always there were a number of performers and we had snow to top it off.

I visited the Chanel store, and I bought a lovely lipstick, Rouge CoCo in Orchidee, beautiful pink tones and it lasts. Lush  where I purchased a number of bath bombs and a face serum bar called Full of Grace, a fabulous product that looks like soap but you rub this on your skin without any water and melts on like butter, wear it at night time to get the full affect, soft radiant skin and the ingredients are natural too.  I then went into a lovely teas shop called the Tea Palace, selling a number of herbal teas which are good for your health in a variety of ways. There is a tasting room too if like me and unsure on what to buy. I chose their award winning Jasmine White Monkey which is from the green tea family that is known for its antioxidant properties and vitamins.

Later we walked to Jermyn Street to look at the lovely shirts and suits, I am need of a decent suit, however my husband bought himself a stylish rain coat from Charles Tyrwhitt. We had another coffee at the nearby Nero shop and then we headed off to Waterloo station, where our favourite Hotel Chocolat store is, they are a Cocoa British grower and Chocolatier (as you may know I have posted about them in the past) and I happened to stumble across the famous sheep at Joules.
