According to Londoners the capital is officially hotter than the sun this week so instead of wasting your time grumbling about it I decided to throw a few ideas together that may liven up your day.

Why sit inside a dark room for hours when you can visit the Rooftop Film Club in Hoxton, grab a drink and catch some rays while watching a forgotten classic. On this occasion Lipton Ice Tea invited me to watch Iris Apfels’ new documentary ‘IRIS’ as part of their #BeADaybreaker campaign.

Although the start time was at 7am we had ice teas and Iris’ dry and sarcastic sense of humour to keep us company. It was a slightly surreal way to start off the day, but the doc gave me a lot to think about and I will be putting up a full review later on this week.

The great thing about starting your day off early is that it gives you the motivation to really make the most of the day. You’re already out and about, might as well do something interesting.


San Pellegrino mineral water pop up shop

Later on in the day we traveled down to Southwark for a San Pellegrino pop up, a casual fine dining experience with up-and-coming British Chef Chris Denney. The Italian style food fused with British ingredients really got the taste buds tingling and the location could not be any more perfect for a scorching day.

Sitting in Potters Fields Park with friends and munching on professionally prepared food is what summer is all about because no doubt when winter comes we’ll be wishing for these times all over again.
