The V&A are hosting an exhibition about our favourite things in the whole wide world! (shoes, duh)
"Pleasure and Pain focuses on the transformative power of extreme footwear, exploring the agony and ecstasy that a shoe might inspire. Over 200 pairs of shoes past and present have been gathered from all around the world, from ancient Egyptian sandals decorated in pure gold leaf to hi-tech shoes created using a 3D printer. Shoes worn by the likes of Marilyn Monrow, Queen Victoria, Sarah Jessica Parker and Daphne Guinness will be on display, alongside iconic shoes from popular culture."
Feeling parched after that museum exhibit? Why not try the Savage Beauty cocktail inspired by Alexander McQueen at the new Two Ruba bar in the city.
The cocktail blends Olmeca Reposado tequila and Aperol with the tropical flavours of peach, ginger and lime. A sweet and easy drinker with a kick! (Yes we did drink a skull full, and we'd do it again!)
