to be totally honest, i think my affinity for pastel shades might have something to do with what i can only describe as the advent of the macaron. this time last year, you couldn't move at a press day for cupcakes. now, the canapé du jour is the macaron (which is brilliant for my fellow gluten-avoiders). in honour of her birthday, i took my bestie chloe to the brand new ladurée tea rooms in covent garden to enjoy some cakey goodness. a fancy tea room in such a tourist hotspot gives the simultaneous pleasure of enjoying something sweet with the horror of seeing a lot people wearing socks with sandals. and fighting off pigeons. enjoy!
a massive thank you to chloe for taking all these snaps on her shiny, brilliant camera.
