A couple of weeks ago I headed down to London all by myself for the first time in years. I used to go to London every couple of months to see friends or for work, but I’ve only made it down a couple of times since having Ebony. It all gets a bit expensive when you have to book family hotel rooms, doesn’t it? And London can be a little hard work when you’re travel companion is terrified of escalators.
So, the prospect of a trip down to the capital with only myself for company was more than a little bit exciting. I finished reading Catch 22 on the train, something I have been trying to do for months. I went Christmas shopping, caught up with friends and drank way too much wine. It was everything a child-free trip to London should be. And, of course, there was cake.
I was invited it down by the lovely people at I Just Love It, a gift company specialising in personalised products (not personal products as I misinformed one shocked looking friend after a couple of beers). The company has been around for seven years now and has recently relaunched so they invited a few bloggers down to London to find out more about them.
The event was held at Jenius Social, a little cookery school tucked away in Islington. To promote the great range of personalised products they sell, I Just Love It decided it made sense to get us to create some personalised masterpieces of our own. Cupcake decorating, of course. There was a competition to see who could create the most beautiful cupcake of all. I didn’t have any cupcakes to decorate (woe is vegan), but I did have a little cake to decorate with dark chocolate and other treats. It was weirdly hypnotic to spend an hour decorating cakes, and it definitely made me wish I had more spare time.
There were lots of I Just Love It products on display at the event, they sell a huge range of products so there’s something for everyone. I particularly loved the personalised books, I think Ebony would love something like that now that she’s a little older. They also had personalised hammers which I loved, but am not sure I really need considering how pitiful my DIY skills are.
