Whenever I’m in a foreign country I tend to spend at least my first week over-indulging in all kinds of less-than-healthy food. I can’t help myself, new food is just too exciting! It’s not even so much the restaurants that tempt me, as they’ll usually have a variety of delicious-sounding healthy choices, but rather the grocery stores filled with strange and amazing-sounding goodies. Rice pudding in a tin for 69p? 100% coming home with me (wasn’t very good to be honest). While Cape Town is a world-class foodie capital, we simply cannot compete when it comes to the sheer volume of food products found in a place like the UK, #thirdworldproblems amirite?!
But if you’re going to treat yo’self to a little cupcake with your caffeine fix, there can’t be a nicer, prettier and pinker place to do it than the postcard-perfect Peggy Porschen Cakes in the posh suburb of Belgravia. Excuse me while I slip into a sugary dreamland of endless flowers and candy-coloured bicycles…
I had the salted caramel cupcake, and yes it was TDF!
Last year I bought a distinctly 60’s yellowy-lime suedette mini-skirt from Primark that I absolutely love so I was thrilled to discovered that they’re still selling similar ones in a range of colours and styles for a mere £6. This minty one even has pockets! Love me a good skirt pocket.
Rest of the outfit deets: Bag, sunnies and fishnet socks (also Primark), T-shirt (vintage), Shoes (Nike), Jacket (Armani Exchange- old), Choker (Forever 21)
