Yes, snow room! Cancel your facial plans, we’re headed to the Artic! Okay, okay, we’re not hopping on a plane (just a tube to Shepherd’s Bush actually) but seriously who the heck thought of inventing a snow room?! The guy deserves a medal!

Workout Woes? Be:Fit London is back!

Finding it hard to get motivated, stay on track, or even be bothered to workout? You aren’t alone. Apparently, only one in five women in the UK do enough exercise to stay fit and healthy.
