1. London Cocktail Week kicks off on Wednesday 7th October and runs until Friday 16th October. But to take part you have to make sure you buy an official wristband, which you can do here. I so can’t wait!

2. Cycling and cupcakes (as well as Pierre Herme macrons and great coffee) with Bikeminded on 8th October. For just £5, you can enjoy the delicious treats of their cake and coffee cruise around Kensington and Chelsea. You also receive valet parking for your bikes and RBKC officials to halt the traffic for you.

If you’re tiniest bit nervous about cycling on the road, you’ll be well looked after! You can book your place on the tour here and you can find out about Bikeminded’s Halloween Ghost Tour here.

Also, check out this video of the last cake and coffee cruise!
