The All Purpose Coat (And Your Best Market Dessert)

I used to think of Helene Berman only as a hat designer. It was only last year that I happily stumbled upon its amazing clothing collections. In her collections, you will find all these lovely outerwear like the one I wore almost for the entire week. The fabric is lightweight, soft and warm. Extremely fairly priced for what they are I have to say, which makes me feel obligated to share with you.
My coat was (obviously) from Helene Berman.

Well, the fashion bits are done. Now the most important thing is that, I’ve found this heavenly French pastry stand in the Saturday market in Duke of York Square just next to the Saatchi Gallery. But firstly I have to clarify, I’m normally the person who chooses the cheese board for dessert at the end of a dinner. I don’t mind a good dessert, but I can easily live without any cookie, cupcake, ice-cream, and even chocolate. But at that particular stand, everything appealed to me. They must had about 10-20 different kinds of little tarts and cakes, all looked absolutely delicious. My favourite caneles were selling at a humble 50p each! I also tried the pistachio friand. It was solid and moist, tasted just as delicious as it looked. Not overwhelmingly sweet, but light and comforting, gave me just enough strength to go on spending the next 3 hours walking around the 100% design exhibition. (Talking about design, the well trimmed plant nearby (although not intended to be, but) might have been the most interesting furniture idea I saw that afternoon.)

Happy monday! Stay in peace:)
