Ice Bar Rocks, London

I know, I know. This is super late. I’m mortified to find this in my drafts, unposted. My site was down for a while (boo) and I’ve also been away on my travels  (don’t worry, more to come on that front!).

After one of my best friends visited for her birthday recently with me all the way over in the UAE, I decided to Google it… just to look.
