Chocolatey Easter Goodness with Farfetch

Everything on Farfetch seems to be positively drool-worthy.

Cupcakes, Farfetch Curate FoodI’m not a fashion blogger, so when they invited me down to a luxury chocolate workshop, I was more than a little intrigued.

Everything about Farfetch is incredibly high-end, from the designers they feature (everything from Balmain to Saint Laurent) to their incredible offices, just off of Old Street.

It was also a really fun and social activity, too, even if the uncut, piped bits of chocolate reduces grown, professional women into giggling wrecks!

We dusted off the truffles in raspberry dust, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate sprinkles.
