Another Heart

A lot of you seem to be liking the 'Roses' hearts I've been making. I love red so I thought I'd make a heart in this rich shade. I was a bit sceptical because I'm always wary about putting red with pink but I think it's worked okay.

I ventured into town this evening and yes, I did actually buy a few Christmas pressies. But something has occurred in town. I was just about to go up the escalator when I saw it. Those two words . . . white letters on a black background . . . calling to me . . . Hotel Chocolat.

Yes, they've opened a branch of my favourite chocolate emporium in Southampton. I was pulled in by its tractor beam and I wandered around in a happy daze looking at all the beautiful chocolates. And if you're reading this Chris, I was very good and didn't buy a single thing for me. You'd have been impressed at my self discipline!

Hotel Southampton.....OH MY GOD!!!! Is it heaven?

Laura said...

Yes Siana, it is Heaven! It's downstairs in West Quay a few shops down from The Body Shop - near the coffee shop outside John Lewis.

It is paradise!

Why is it that when a Chocolate shop opens I suddenly have a social life and no spare time to take a wee little trip to my old stomping ground!
Did you really not get anything for yourself?!

Laura said...

Yes, Siana. I really didn't get anything for me! Just a couple of Christmas gifts.

I nearly caved in when I picked up (and lovingly stroked) a jar of their 'Milky' hot chocolate but I was good and didn't get it.

Christmas is full of food and I'm sure I'll be eating muchos chocolate over the next couple of weeks anyway .....

Hmmmmm this Hotel chocolat does sound like heaven, I've checked out the website so I may have to find out for myself. I don't think there is going to be any danger of a Hotel Chocolat coming to Scunthorpe though!!!

Laura I'm adoring your rose heart beads they are so gorgeous. The red one is beautiful. Please will you stop making beads I want!
