Did you see me shouting about our new shop earlier?? No? Okay, I shall shout again, using beautiful hand-drawn calligraphy by BerinMade.
Our little nook is nestled right in between some really lovely spots of London, such as the Kensington Palace and gardens, High Street Kensington and Notting Hill Gate for sight-seeing and shopping, with some old-school and gorgeous pubs like The Windsor Castle, Churchill Arms and Hansom Cab for drinking and dining. In addition to the above, where you could easily while away the daytime, there are some fabulous places to hang in the evenings such as Dirty Bones (really succulent posh fried chicken and fancy quaffable cocktails) and the Piano Bar (live piano sing-along-good-time-raucousness). Here's a handy little map by local artist Alice Peto to help you navigate through all our favourite bits in Kensington, including us of course!
We're gunning towards an opening date towards the end of this month but if you do find yourselves pottering about in our neck of the woods before then, pop by our shop front, take a photo of our beautiful window (selfies on window background are heavily encouraged), and you could win yourself a beautiful Grande box of eighteen macarons!
Here are the rules, and some dull T&Cs: 1. The prize! One sumptuous GRANDE gift box with an assortment of 18 Anges Signature Collection macarons 2. Photo entry must include the full window in view (with or without yourself - makes no difference to the outcome or winning chances but faces do make our days brighter!) 2. Competition entry via Facebook and/or Twitter and/or Instagram. Participants must like or follow Anges de Sucre (@angesdesucre) on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram and share photo entry on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram by tagging @angesdesucre and including the hashtag #angesdesucre 3. Competition ends on 30th March 2014 at 22:00 GMT 4. Winner will be selected at random and announced on 3rd April 2014 4. One entry per person 5. The prize must be collected from Anges de Sucre, 1 Holland Street, London W8 4NA, upon showing the winning image to the Anges team in store. Alternatively, delivery is available to mainland UK addresses for £5.00 (please email us for further details) 6. No personal data provided by the entrant shall be disclosed to any third parties and we promise to never ever spam you
Here's our very first entry: the beautiful BerinMade family in front of their gorgeous window creation (I'm trying to poach their lil one into becoming the official Anges spokesbaby - how cute is she??)
We're really looking forward to your entries! And of course, welcoming you to the World of Anges oh so very soon.
