1. Hyde Park Duck Pond

We are so lucky in London to have to many huge and green parks. I particularly like to go through the gate into Hyde Park at the top of Gloucester Road and then get a delicious brownie from the coffee stand before walking up with Thumbelina to see the ducks!

2. Ottolenghi Belgravia

Its one of the yummiest places to eat in London, great for take-away and eat it, I love to go in the summer and sit outside. Fresh flavoursome food with a naughty pudding. What more could you want?! Plus the stores are a feast for the eyes.

3. New Covent Garden Flower Market

I have been going since I can remember with my mother, its the wholesale flower market that supplies most florists in london. You can get everything from tissue and ribbon to full-grown trees and glitter! I love to go and buy flowers for the week and then have bubble and squeak with bacon and eggs at the cafe behind.

4. Pierre Herme

Although I love Macaroons in general, no-one does interesting flavours or the lightness of touch like Pierre Herme. He is also stocked in Selfridges, but the store itself is a treat, with cake and chocolates too!

PLUS Want To Know What To Wear In West London?

I often have to walk around a lot so in the winter heels are not always practical, I love these acne boots for style and comfort, and a gilet and biker never goes amiss. Boyfriend jeans are one of my favourite cuts and these are a great take on them.
