The Sanderson, London - Tea time treats and pampering bliss

An ultimate light foodie treat would be a decadent afternoon tea, and one that I have been meaning to try is The Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at The Sanderson Hotel London. There is something about crust-less sandwiches, pots and pots of hot tea (especially in the freezing British winter weather), an array of mouth-watering cakes which creates the perfect setting for catching up with a good friend. The Sanderson afternoon tea was wonderfully creative, very well presented, and most importantly - it was delicious!  

To top off the tea treat, we booked a Deluxe Manicure (£50) at Agua Spa at The Sanderson, which was utter bliss. As soon as we stepped into Agua, the relaxation mood was immediately set as the dreamy creamy white and dimly lit swathes of fabric swayed throughout the luxurious spa. I have to say a really big thanks to Maja and Pauline for all of their help!

W Hotel Singapore - Madonna exhibition launch

W hotel Singapore and Vitimin Water are showcasing an exclusive Madonna photograph exhibition, curated by Rock Paper Photo. We were pleased to be invited by a friend to attend the launch where New Yorker Graffiti artist Alec Monopoly worked his talents there and then on a print - of Madonna of course, whilst we observed, we chomped on incredibly fresh tuna, prawn tempura, Vitimin Water and exotic cocktails...all in the plush surroundings of W Hotel Singapore. Thanks for a lovely evening!
