Now that Pancake Day is over (don’t you just wish Pancake Day is every day? So yum!) Easter will soon be upon us. In honour of the spring chocolate eggstravaganza I’ve thrown together an Easter style-guide, which I’ve themed around bunnies (because, strangely enough, egg print just isn’t that popular) and anyway, bunnies are cute. Between the Maison Michel ears and the t-shirt and skirt combo, you’ll be all kitted out for Easter and ready to start egg hunting.

No seriously. The Big Egg Hunt is a giant Easter egg hunt taking place around London. Over 200 eggs have been decorated by artists, designers and personalities including Diane von Furstenberg (below), Tommy Hilfiger and Maria Grachvogel and scattered across London (see a few of my faves in the gallery below). The hunt, which is sponsered by Fabergé (who else?), is in aid of charities Action for Children and Elephant Charity and all the eggs will be auctioned off after 40 days but if you can’t afford the eggstra large version, check out the hand-painted mini eggs on offer at Selfridges’ Egg Hunt pop-up shop.
As well as the hunt, there are lots of other eggciting eggstras going on such as the creation of the dish Eggs Fabergé, which has been whipped up by The Goring Hotel and consists of smoked salmon, Burford Brown scrambled egg, lobster ragout, lobster sauce, poached quail egg and Sevruga caviar. Sounds eggsquisite! There’s also a Where’s Wally egg popping up all over the place, a photography competition and the chance to win an actual Fabergé egg.
I’m planning on hunting down a bunch of the designer eggs so keep a look out in upcoming posts!
