Last weekend we ventured to Notting Hill for a ‘day out’. We were walking down Portobello Road when we saw that the queue outside the Hummingbird Bakery wasn’t as massive as usual; so we queued up.
The bakery itself is pretty small (ALWAYS expect to queue by the way) but when we got inside we were greeted by an amazing aray of cupcakes, carrot cakes, birthday cakes… the lot!
We eventually decided on two cups of tea and the below amazing treats!
I had the Chocolate cupcake with blue vanilla (tasted kind of coconutty – yum yum!) frosting; while James went straight for the Chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting.
Although they were absolutely marvellous, I could literally only eat half of mine. I thought I was going to have a heart attack the frosting was so overwhelming!
But what a treat! Next stop: The Magnolia Bakery: Bleeker Street.

This week saw the publication of the ‘top 100’ in Drapers magazine. The top 100 looks at the biggest and most influential people/brands/retailers in fashion over the past year. Very proudly I can say that Drapers voted AllSaints NUMBER ONE!
Since summer this year, AllSaints have launched a fully transactional US Site with a DC in New Jersey, meaning all US sales are now in dollars and are shipped within the US. Furthermore to the Atlantic-expansion, a concession began the store roll-out within Bloomingdales New York, followed by L.A Robertson and Miami is very close to opening. In the new year there will be a flagship in New York and Boston will follow. Additional language sites have made shopping even easier for French, Italian, German and Spanish speakers.
It’s all very exciting and very well deserved. Well done to all involved atAllSaints; long may it continue!
