But, ahem, apart from that... I'm not into ice-cream. Apart from, as I have now discovered, on jewellery. Check out these amazing pendants from Q-Pot, available at the V&A Shop (and online here), where i first spied them. Sadly they're made of rubber, and aren't designed for a little nibble when you're peckish on the tube.
Macaroons are one of those things that everyone comes back from Paris in love with. Though I think I mainly just love all the pretty pastel colours in rows.
Also there's an awesome chandelier/sculpture in the main entrance of the V&A by Dale Chihuly.
Sadly, I was at the V&A to have coffee with my visiting grandparents, and so didn't make it to the new design exhibition, Telling Tales, which looked tantalisingly interesting from a distance. I shall be back, and might HAVE to get a little sweet treat while I'm there...

People really do go all out for festivals. I had the most amazing time at Secret Garden Party this weekend, where NOT dressing up as a monkey/leopard/ninja/roman soldier/circus clown is likely to get you odd looks as you wander around the fantastical landscape.
If you've never been, here's a tip: GO! Next year is sure to be even bigger - maybe not better, since I enjoy a nice cozy atmosphere at my festivals - but fantastic nonetheless.
I'll see you there.
