Destination... London

This Summer the only place to be is London, with the Olympics coming to our fair city, it's time to think about what you can do when you're in the capital. When you're in London there are a number of place to stay however my choice for the ultimate luxury indulgence is Claridges on Brook Street in Mayfair, with their Luxury vintage interiors, amazing food courtesy of Gordon Ramsey and 1920's art deco style rooms, Claridges is the perfect place in the city to have the perfect weekend away.

Other thinks to do in London include afternoon tea at Sketch on Conduit Street, this funky and quirky place reminds you of school desserts and days gone by with all the retro decor. It is a fab place to spend a Saturday afternoon and P.S the cake is amazing. If you're a chocoholic why not try Choccywocchydoodah at Foubert's Place, with their amazing cakes and hot chocolates it is a great place to get your sugar rush. If you're stying at Claridges make sure you treat yourself to some time in Claridges bar it's perfect for drinking champagne and celeb spotting, don't be surprised if you see Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller or Robert Pattinson. Don't forget to make a reservation at Coleridge's to sample of Gordon Ramsey's delicious food.

Choccywoccydoohdah, is a chocolate lovers heaven.

When you're going shopping in London there are sooooooo many amazing places to go, there are the great department stores including Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. However one of my favourite places to flash the cash is South Molton Street, in Mayfair. The street is filled with amazing designer shops and small boutiques it is the perfect place to spend an afternoon and give your credit card a workout. Why not treat yourself to an outfit for cocktails at Mew of Mayfair, where they make the best Mojito you have ever tasted.

Get your Gladrags on at Mews of Mayfair.

The perfect outfit at Mew of Mayfair should be glamorous and stylish so you need the perfect cocktail dress and as your in London make sure you pack plenty of British Designer clothing, try a Stella McCartney Dress, and some Alexander McQueen heels and accessories, to feel truly British.

London is a fabulous place to visit and there are soooo many place to go and plenty of places to flash the cash to round of the perfect weekend treat yourself to some time in the Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden, while away an afternoon at the V and A museum or take a champagne trip on the London Eye. I love London and with the Olympics in town this Summer there is nowhere I would rather spend my time. Let's hope the Sunshine comes out in time for team GB to grab a few Gold medals.
