This weekend sees the launch of DEFINE.London’s Fitzrovia studio. It’s mission? To help sculpt a stronger, healthier and more inspired version of you. Located on Great Portland Street, the studio couldn’t be further from the garishly coloured gyms, with worn mats and shouty slogans on the walls. Instead it’s fresh, light tranquil and calm, providing the ideal place to work out in peace. We’re hoping it also means you won’t have the weightlifters who grunt so loudly that you’re either put off or you’re having to suppress your laughter as you watch them from your bike. Just because the space […]
When is a delicatessen not simply a deli? When it’s also a restaurant! And Soho deli Lina Stores is about to open a second site, a pasta restaurant, in the biggest move for the store in its 75 year history and being led by a business woman and chef at the top of her game. Lina opened in the 1940s to provide homesick Italians with original ingredients from back home. Since then it’s done a roaring trade, not only keeping Italian Londoners cupboards stocked up, but also becoming a real hit with the locals too. We’ve been shopping at Lina […]
Sisters of the world unite, on Thursday 8th March 2018 International Women’s Day returns and the whole world takes a day to recognise the impressiveness that is the female species.

So if you’re a fabulous female or just in awe of the fairer sex then make sure you don’t miss these amazing pro-women events, after all, ‘who run the world?’
At his final public speech, Nelson Mandela called for this generation to bring an end to extreme poverty, something that luckily most of us in England will never be able to comprehend but an all too real experience for millions around the world. Continuing his work, Global Citizen, the international advocacy organisation is hosting a free ticketed arts and activism event at the O2 Academy Brixton in the year that he would have been a hundred. Today, they have announced that Emeli Sandé, Professor Green, Naughty Boy, Gabrielle Aplin, Luisa Omielan and Hussain Manawer will all be performing at the […]
Global shipping is one of the biggest contributors to pollution, with cruise ships burning as much fuel as small towns as they chug their way round the globe. So is it possible to both be eco-minded and take a cruise? Well yes, if you embrace an alternative energy source that’s been powering the shipping industry for millennia. Wind. So here are some cruise ships powered by the wind, making them as environmentally friendly as they are achingly glamorous.

What: Delicious gins, scrummy canapés and… all that Jazz. New: The Waldorf Hilton has been a symbol of British heritage set in the heart of Covent Garden since the 1900’s. So no, we couldn’t say it was new. The Gin and Jazz evenings, however, are fresh on the scene. Where: The evening itself happens in the Good Godfrey’s bar and lounge, which is directly to your right as you enter through the main doors. Fint it at The Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, WC2B 4DD, www.hilton.com. The Look: Long cushioned bench-seats stretch along two sides of the room and individual tables are set up […]
