Sumptuous evening setting....

Exclusive evening tours of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are due to start on Friday 24 March and will be continuing up until 1 May. There are two tours a day, one starting at 17.30 the other at 18.00 and each tour will have a maximum of 30 people on it. For £80 per person, you get the tour, a glass of champers and a copy of the official souvenir guide thrown in for good measure. so, don't miss your fill of royal grandeur!

Would you wear these?

I was wandering along Bond Street the other day window shopping as I went and found myself looking at some of the window displays thinking - who on earth would wear that?!! And who would?

Victoria on the rise

I feel really small when I walk along Buckingham Palace Road these days as the new buildings tower above me. But how lovely to see the invasion of so many cafes and restaurants along what used to be a pretty boring thoroughfare. Not sure about the £3 cost of a cup of coffee though!
