Whether you’re looking for the perfect remedy for a rainy day in the capital (and a way to satisfy your inner child- think icing delicious biscuits until your hearts content), or just somewhere to pick up something special for someone you love (I’ve bought thank you gifts a- plenty here)- Biscuiteers should be your first stop for any budget. From their icing workshops, afternoon tea and huge selection of perfectly decorated sweet treats (three words: attention to detail)- this London born biscuit cafe really is somewhere special- and with one in Clapham and Notting Hill, you’re never too far from some biscuity goodness (plus they also do macarons and gluten free goodies too)!

I’m not sure there are enough words to express how much I absolutely this musical- and just wish I hadn’t left it so long to see it. With music by comedy genius Tim Michin and starring possibly the most talented group of children I’ve ever seen, not only is Matilda intensely heartwarming (with bloody catchy songs) but it pays an incredible tribute to my favourite childhood book (and film too). I won’t give too much away (although it’s SO tempting), but expect big cameos from a certain mammoth chocolate cake, a hilarious Ms Trunchbull and a naughty newt too. I laughed, cried, streamed the soundtrack a socially unacceptable amount of times and then went home and recommended everyone I know come again with me- so if there are any willing volunteers, let me know ; )
