Summer Photo Diary: Magnum Pleasure Store

By on October 1, 2018

Over the weekend, I picked up a box of Magnum’s white chocolate ice cream for my evening indulge session with some take-away, wine & a few episodes of of Issa Rae’s Insecure. As I helped myself to two portions of this – the crunch of the chocolate shell followed by the creamy soft vanilla flavoured core – I was Instantly taken back to the ‘make your own ice-cream session’ at the Magnum Sloane Square pop up store. 

It was a moment of ice cream heaven as you got to customise your own Magnum Ice Cream from chocolate base to the toppings. I chose different toppings along with chocolate base, Milk, Dark or White chocolate. (white chocolate topped with a bunch of random toppings to match my dress…) how creative lol

So what was the Experience like?

It was quick, how? because I managed to pop in on my lunch break! I must say, the store was beautiful and I was a little obsessed with the brown & gold set-up as much the ice cream. I’d describe it as Instagram heaven with the perfect opportunity at every angle to take a photo including 4 special photo booths to shoot the perfect flat-lay on.
