A pair of friends celebrated the opening of their new soap and candle store in Hampstead with a champagne reception.

Cosmetic specialist Mikey Reynolds and accountant Paul Elliott launched Bubbles & Light, in Flask Walk, last Friday.

The launch was attended by family and friends, including Daily Mail columnist Andrew Pierce and Culture Club drummer Jon Moss, both Hampstead residents.

Bubbles & Light, which has replaced former coffee shop Simply Scrumptious, is open seven days a week and focuses on natural, handmade products – with stock including vegan soaps and soya candles with essential oils.

Mr Reynolds said: “Our products have been sourced from all around Britain, supporting small cottage industries. In short, we stand for handmade, natural, British, fair trade, ethically-sourced and sustainable ingredients.”
