While Claire was here visiting me, I took her to my favorite tea room Lavish Habit. It’s a lovely tea shop with a twist. It’s run by two sisters, who have two loves and one BIG idea – a ‘cafe boutique’. Finely crafted coffee, superb teas, fab cakes & snacks. Gorgeous jewellery, clothing, homewares & a lovingly up-cycled retro furniture range – all under one very eclectic roof!

The tea and cakes on offer are beyond yummy, it was like Claire & I were having our own little tea party but without having to do the washing up! If you ever find yourself in South West London, you should take a trip to Balham and visit the lovely ladies at Lavish Habit. Here is more info on opening times and a little map.

The up-cycled retro furniture range is by far my favorite part of the store, I just wish I had enough money to kit my flat out with all there lovely finds!

Would like to say thank you Nicola from Lavish Habit for letting me take photographs in her pretty store.
