Farm Girl is one of the most Instagrammable dining spots in London – you’ve probably seen the rose lattes, flower-decorated açai bowls and colour-pop interiors all over social media. The new Chelsea all-day dining spot is where the fashion and fitness crowd flock for uber-healthy dishes topped off with the tastiest hot beverages and cocktails. Twists on classics include the Clemmie Spritz, which has less sugar than an Aperol spritz; the BBQ jackfruit tostadas are hands down among best healthy starters we’ve ever tasted; and for a main, the dukkah-crusted cod shouldn’t be missed. We challenge you not to leave without Instagramming every single dish.

Duck & Dry
Hands down, this is among the best blow-dry bars in town, whether you’re seeking a fiddly up-do, a bouncy blow dry or tousled beach waves à la Gisele Bündchen. If you need some hair inspiration there is also a handy lookbook menu with various styles to choose from, plus the brand’s range of hair styling products is a delight – in particular the Oomph Dry Volume & Texture Spray for that that tousled Alexa Chung look. Find Duck & Dry on the top floor of Sweaty Betty’s townhouse in the heart of Carnaby, at Oxford Circus, in Chelsea and at the newly opened Spitalfields branch.
