Movember Grooming with Young’s

Are any of your loved ones taking part in Movember? Of course, they are-it is now an inaugural event in a man’s calendar and whilst it is obviously fantastic for charity, it is not always as lovely for us girlies. Not a fan of the facial hair that is suddenly always there, comfortably settling itself just above your man’s upper lip? If so, The Handbook is here to help with a solution that will tame that ‘stashe whilst also letting your boy do his thing for charity. Let us introduce you to: Young’s Grooming stations which will be popping up across […]

Aqua Shard Brunch

Chances are by now you’ve been to Aqua Shard for drinks, but how about brunch? This isn’t just any brunch though this is the quaffing Champagne whilst eating lobster benedict and taking in the views from the 32nd level sort of brunch.   We headed up to the dizzying heights last weekend, make sure you get a reservation, by the time we left the queues were starting to snake around the corner and when it’s windy and cold that’s not fun for anyone.  Once upstairs you’re whisked inside through the glass doors, and hit with staggering views of London, it really […]

Movies under The Moonlight at Bentley’s

No Christmas is complete without a movie marathon of festive films, particularly the classics. Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s, It’s a Wonderful Life and Elf and you are in festive heaven. However, the one film that mostly epitomises Christmas to us is Miracle on 34th Street which in our opinion has just the right combination of laughter and cries to keep us going for the year. With this in mind, make sure you head straight to Bentley’s where on the 4th December, there will be a private screening of the film complete with popcorn and nibbles. This is no ordinary cinema […]

An Arty Sleepover

If you are looking for an art exhibition with a difference, then make sure you head to Gallery Different on 25th November for the Ibis Sleep Exhibition; an artistic slumber party celebrating our favourite past time – sleep. Now we know that art exhibitions can sometimes bring on snoring, but we promise there won’t be any snoozing going on at this event. Well…we can promise you won’t be snoozing. However, we can’t say the same for the artists themselves, who will each spend a night resting their creative heads on the ibis Sweet Bed at The Gallery Different, using their night’s […]

Cicchetti

I’m not sure what I was expecting from the new Cicchetti (part of the San Carlo group) when I looked at the website, perhaps a middle of the road Italian in Covent Garden, there wasn’t even a menu. Yes it has good reviews, and yes they must have been doing something right as they’ve had huge success in Manchester and Piccadilly, but if you were going on the website it wasn’t much. Anyway I got to Wellington Street and found the restaurant, their extravagant window display of  smoked and cured meats, which were lit up suggested that perhaps this was […]
