Favourite places to dine out for dinner in London:

A Bit of What You Fancy, on Kingsland Road. Is definitely my favourite restaurant;  It’s run by the incredible Elaine Chalmers. They have prosecco on tap.

A Little of What You Fancy, 464 Kingsland Road, London E8 4AE - - Favourite place to have a drink? The Baby Bathhouse, Stoke Newington. It’s a really nice bar and has a super (and perfectly small) club downstairs on Fridays and Saturdays. The Baby Bathhouse, 125 Stoke Newington Church Street, Stoke Newington, London N16 0UH Favourite bookshop? IDEA Books, they sell at Dover St Market and online. They have mountains of fashion, art and photography books as well as old magazines. Including strange stuff like my new favourite - 'Wet' magazine, a magazine dedicated to 'gourmet bathing'. Exceptional. Dover Street Market, 17-18 Dover Street, London W1S 4LT Where are your favourite local places to shop: Mint Vintage - they're opening a new one in East London soon and there is already a shop in Covent Garden. Brilliant old American denim, workwear, leather jackets, the good stuff! Mint Vintage, 20 Earlham Street, London WC2 9LN - - - -   Secret Gem: Rippon Cheese. A cheese shop in Pimlico. It does the best cheese ever. Delice de Borgogne and Godminster are my current favourites... Rippon Cheese, 26 Upper Tachbrook Street, Pimloco, London SW1V 1SW - - - - -
