I know many of you are wondering what you and your significant other could do around the city to celebrate the holiday, and the other half of you are thinking about the discounted chocolates that follow on the 15th.
Unfortunately the holiday is directed towards couples, when truly it should be for anyone who holds any love for someone else and wishes to appreciate them, whether that be a family member or your friends. So ditch the roses, the champagne and the expensive hotel room and treat your family and friends to a cute afternoon around the city during this week.
So, where should you go? Try somewhere pink, I mean it doesn't hurt to follow some of the tradition...
Sketch Afternoon Tea
Why not wander down to Mayfair and take a seat in The Gallery at Sketch.
The walls, the seats, and the food comes in all shades of pink. Afternoon tea is served 12:30-4:30 Monday to Sunday, offering various sandwiches, scones pastries and sweets. If you're prepared to sip on tea and nibble like a Princess then why not book a table for you and your friends at Sketch. There's a champagne option too...
My first time in Hackney, and my friend takes me to this little discovery. Palm Vaults, one of the most Instagrammable cafes I've ever come across. Palm tree's, ceiling plants and marble tables, what else could you expect from this picture perfect social sitting. As soon as you walk through the duck egg doors you're greeted with smiles and the sounds of Madonna's best hits. If you're a lover of latte and have great passion for croissants head down to Palm Vaults, where you'll try the sweetest cinnamon pastries and discover the pastel rainbow of unique floral lattes.
Peggy, sweet Peggy, thank you for blessing me with one of the best cupcakes I've ever had, I am forever grateful.
Peggy Porschen parlour is a bloggers dream, being welcomed by the rose pink walls. As you step inside it's a cake lovers paradise, you're greeted by chocolate rose, salted caramel, and strawberry champagne. The cakes are sweet, the icing is sweet and the interior is also sweet. There's very little seating inside, so make sure you make a reservation before.
