White Cotton Peonies

You can imagine my reaction when an email landed in my inbox inviting me to an evening of ice-cream tasting at Godiva‘s flagship London store. It took a good 5 seconds before I could muster a sensible response that didn’t include “HELL YEAH”. I was ready and my Joey pants were at the ready…


To celebrate the launch of Godiva bringing back Soft Ice Cream for summer (yes, it is apparently almost upon us – despite the current chilly gales that seem to be blowing as I’m writing this), the team, kindly hosted an evening where we were invited to create our own bespoke creations. Think scrumptious thick waffle cones, dipping chocolate and more toppings than Charlie could shake this Chocolate Factory stick at. It was awesome.


It comes as no surprise that the Ice Cream is as thick and luxurious as you would expect from the brand that creates my favourite naughty treats. If you’re based in or around London, it’s definitely worth heading to one of their stores, where you can experience your own little chocolate heaven first hand from £4.50.


Of course, all of this was sweetened even further by seeing some gorgeous familiar faces such as Thirty Something London, Heroine in Heels and Sunny in London. The perfect way to spend ANY evening, regardless of how warm it is outside.


Thanks to the gorgeous chocolate fairies at Godiva for making it happen and to the wonderfully friendly girls at Kitch Media for a fabulous evening. I’m off to recover from my chocolate sweats…

    Thanks for the mention! Just like Godiva ice cream, it’s always a real treat to see you too. Looking forward to catching up again soon. Perhaps over some more chocolate ice cream? 😉 I’ll send an email about the interview I would like to do on blogging advice with you. All the best, gorgeous!
