Savile Row is changing with traditional tailors becoming more open to new customers and funky new tailors opening shops on the Row.

The market and the Piazza are what most people think of if you say Covent Garden but the best places to shop in Covent Garden are not the most well known.

Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times best-selling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky´s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!). What´s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can´t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and 20 silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong, the five kilim rugs from Turkey, the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka, the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)... Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky´s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn´t have a new job yet! Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky´s feeling rather blue, when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She´s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They´ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together. Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood´s sister can´t...hate shopping? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Kellgren.

Like its popular and acclaimed predecessors, Restoration London and Dr Johnson´s London, this fascinating evocation of Elizabethan London is the result of the author´s passionate interest in the practical details of everyday life and the conditions in which most people lived, which most history books ignore: the streets, houses and gardens; cooking, housework and shopping; clothes, jewellery and make-up; medicine and sex; education, etiquette and hobbies; religion, law and crime. 1.

Like its popular and acclaimed predecessor, Restoration London, this book is the result of the author´s passionate interest in the practical details of the everyday life of our ancestors, so often ignored in more conventional history books. Based on every possible contemporary source (diaries, almanacs, newspapers, advice books, memoirs, government papers and reports), Liza Picard examines every aspect of life in London: the streets, houses and gardens; cooking, housework, laundry, and shopping; clothes and jewellery, cosmetics and hairdressing; medicine, sex, hobbies, education, and etiquette; religion and popular beliefs; law and crime. This book spans the years 1740 to 1770, starting when the gin craze was gaining ground and ending when the East Coast of America was still British. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fiona Shaw.
