Whether you’re staying in one of the hotels in Covent Garden, visiting family or planning to spend the day in the area with a friend, you can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of London and just want something you can refer to for places to eat, drink and things to do.

Our first stop was Homeslice. If you haven’t been to Homeslice, you need to go to Homeslice. It’s situated in Neals Yard and they serve huge slices of pizza for £4 or a whole pizza for £20. My friend and I ordered a whole pizza because we’d had little for breakfast and demolishing a 20-inch pizza was light work. Check out their Instagram, @homesliceldn and salivate over all the different toppings before heading in.

After a few hours of mooching around Astrid & Miya, Skinnydip and a few other shops, we decided that the extreme cold weather, the high was 2 degrees last Thursday, called for a hot chocolate. We stumbled upon Aubaine. It’s described as, “a passionate marriage of French culinary creativity and the discerning standards of the London dining scene”. The price of the hot chocolate was a little dear at £4.50 but it has to be the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tried. I can’t drink coffee as it gives me migraines, so I’ve tried and tested hot chocolate from various coffee shops. I think everyone should experience a hot chocolate from Aubaine at least once.

The last stop before heading home was no other than Lola’s cupcakes. Anyone who knows me in real life knows angel cake and Tottenham cake are the way to my heart. Any of Lola's cupcakes are now being added to that list. There’s a variety of flavours and sizes of cakes and cupcakes to try and if like myself, you have a sweet tooth, you can pick up a loyalty card.
