If you're looking to kick start the summer season in style, you might want to check out the Spirit of Summer Fair at Olympia, London which is open today and runs until Saturday 14 May.
With well over 100 food, home and fashion exhibitors including Harvey Nichols Foodhall, Kiss her...by Bianca Hall and A Little Bit of Art as well as a series of lifestyle workshops covering everything from how to make your garden look glam for the perfect garden party to choosing the right colour palette for your home, it's pretty much a one-stop home improvement shop.
But as we all know summer style's not all about your home – so for those keen to get a bit of help rejuvenating their hot weather wardrobes there are also dozens of fashion stalls, plus style and colour consultants on hand, ready to help transform your look for the new season.
All this, plus alfresco dining workshops and tips from Michelin-starred chefs including John Campbell and the chance to break it all up with lunch at a Mosimann's (caterers to the royal family) restaurant.
If you're anywhere close and can take the time, you're pretty much guaranteed to come away inspired – and quite possibly considerably poorer.
