Last week we visited Harvey Nichols winter wonderland on the Fifth Floor to check out their Christmas in July press day. As we entered a room full of luxury food and drink we were greeted with a glass of Perrier Jou茅t, I noticed a bottle of elderflower cordial next to the champagne bucket so asked for a drop in my champagne – delicious! Anyone who loves elderflower should try it; in fact even if you don’t love it give it a try if you get a chance.

Our first stop was Timmy’s Pies, West London pie company that started out on a Chelsea market stall; only free range British meat goes into their pies – tasty! Their fan fave is roasted pork and rhubarb, newbies for this Christmas will be the Boxing Day pie, and Turkey, stuffing, and cranberry pie. I would definitely recommend giving these guys a try!

Bubbleology who are already a firm fave in Harvey Nicks have developed a few lovely Poptails; just like the original bubble tea but with different flavoured bubbles inside!
