February’s Super Seven things to do in London

February is the month of love. How do we find love? We are (hopefully) showered with it when we are born, which makes us happy. Happiness can be anything from a blue sky, to your favourite pet, to buying flowers for ourselves – even better if we are sent them! So this month, we start with the Festival of Happiness in Shoreditch.


On Instagram we are sharing our favourite flower stalls and shops, so check in for a little flower love, make your month a colourful one, and move on from those January blues.
