I Spy – Riviera Maison……….

One of the nicest things about Amsterdam last weekend was the opportunity to indulge in a little window shopping.  Sometimes we spend so much time online that we forget the simple pleasure of browsing… 

Of discovering new shops. 

That little quickening of the heartbeat when we see a window display that appeals to us so strongly that we have no choice but to enter…and the fragrance greeting us at the door pulls us in deeper.  The joy of touching, holding and caressing. 

 The absolute knowledge that some new discovery, some little trinket, some small essential item is soon going to be carefully wrapped in tissue paper and will be ours. 

Why, oh why is there not a Riviera Maison in the UK?
