Not only is this weekend going to be an absolute scorcher! It’s also jam-packed with things to do in London. I was rubbing my hands in glee when I discovered all the potential activities I could get up to in the sunshine (well only if I have a body double). Anyway here is the low down. No excuses to stay in this weekend guys!
Everyone loves a good FREEBIE! Enjoy styling from ASOS, manicures by Nails inc, hairstyling by TONI&GUY and delicious Malibu cocktails at Malibutique pop-up at Westfield Stratford City from 12th-14th July.
If you are the green fingered sort then this is just the event for you. Finishing on the 14th July visitors can discover a mix of glorious show gardens with a wealth of opportunities to see planting and country crafts close up; fine dining with dazzling floral displays and all things ‘grow-your-own'; live music with fabulous shopping, fashion and food.
“St Martin’s Courtyard will pay tribute to the heritage and future of Covent Garden this summer with a festival celebrating food and flowers.
