Day of indulgence: Ladies
Now that you're feeling a bit more fresh-faced, ease your way back into the world with a serene browse in Luna & Curious. The stock is curated by a collective of young artisans: you'll find jewellery, masks, ceramics, and many more things that would look truly lovely on your dressing table.
Betray even a passing interest in loose-leaf tea and the wonderful staff at this Spitalfields teahouse will happily share their seemingly endless knowledge. Sit up at the long, wooded bar by the hot water taps and you can watch them brewing your choice using the traditional Chinese method of gongfu.
Day of indulgence: Gentlemen
There's no other way to round off a day of indulgence than with some of the best steak money can buy. You'll find it at Hawksmoor Spitalfields, alongside other intensely meaty and manly options. The top-quality cuts are from the renowned London butcher Ginger Pig.
Day of indulgence: The sky's the limit
Little Paris Store
A Francophile’s delight. Little Paris’s buyers hop over the Channel every three weeks to bring you vintage French posters, battered signage and ephemera. The showroom at the back has some quirkier items including the front grille of a classic Citroën Avant and medical posters from the 1950s. There are larger furniture items too, from beautiful wooden cabinets to sandblasted metal pieces.
