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
Bloom is no ordinary perfumery, as they boldy state themselves. This beautiful niche shop stocks fragrances, candles, skincare and more from a clutch of under-the-radar brands that are grouped by scent. If you know what you're after – be it woody, green or unconventional (all available) – Bloom's well-informed staff will be able to help you out. But on the off chance you can't find what you're looking for, Bloom also offers a bespoke fragrance-making service that is absolute olfactory heaven. This place is great for gifts, too, with a scent sampler subscription and 'pet soap', in case your pal's pooch requires a spruce. As featured in the 100 best shops in London
