Are These The Best Spas In The World?

Lie back and think of not being in England. The spa break is the perfect getaway, a bit of ‘me time’, some pampering and attention. And like anything, you can take it to the nth degree, by doing it in serious style. Sure, you could pop down your local Virgin Active and jump in the sauna, but it’s not the same. Many five star hotels don’t actually have particularly fancy spas, often a couple of expensive treatment rooms and a mangey basement pool. But, by contrast, there are a number of incredible spas to be found around the globe. Spas […]

What’s up Zuck? We Met With Facebook and Here’s What We Found Out

We caught up with Stu Lerman, Head of Comms for Facebook EMEA, to shine some light on an at times grey area in the social media world.With figures showing Facebook now has 2.23 billion active monthly users, the platform has tried to move with the times, introducing various different incentives in an attempt to dispel the negative energy slowly enveloping. Last weekend Facebook, the billion-dollar social networking site created by Mark Zuckerberg back in 2004, hosted a free pop-up event in Carnaby Street. Welcoming one and all to get quizzical over new features, data share and the future of the popular social media platform, […]

Famous And Fit: Celeb Health Hacks

So Mark Wahlberg’s got a stupid health regime. To the delighted whoops of tabloid journalists who swiftly crucified him, Wahlberg revealed that his day starts at 2:30 AM (note, I didn’t go to bed until this time last night) and is basically wave after wave of fitness, a relentless regime more reminiscent of a CIA black site interrogation. Except for heartwarming breaks for prayer and family time, there’s not a lot of time spent gorging on Ben & Jerry’s kicking back and doing all the things I’d do if I was a multi millionaire. But it does highlight just how […]

Sweetest Spots For Sourdough This September

Sourdough September, not just a good use of sibilance (GCSE English eat your heart out), but a celebration of one of the best baking trends since, well, sliced bread. Sourdough September, launched in 2013 by the Real Bread Campaign, is a chance for all the sourdough bakers to showcase their lactobacillus cultured wares. Because did you know that the baking process for sourdough is different to normal bread? Of course you did, but I had to head to fount-of-all-knowledge Wikipedia to discover that it’s made without regular yeast that reacts with gluten making the dough rise, and instead using naturally occurring lactobacilli […]

Is This East London’s Coolest Hotel?

What: Bringing together the warehouses of New York with East London edge, New Road Hotel is the work of three brothers who built the hotel on the former site of a textile factory where their father once worked.  Having  been a major part of Whitechapel’s booming textile trade in the sixties, the factory closed in 2000 and was left empty until the brothers took it over in 2011 to turn it its current incarnation, complete with a restaurant from Marco Pierre White. The hotel sits just a few minutes from Whitechapel station, an area that is on the rise (partly due […]

How To Do Oktoberfest Best – The Handbook Heads To Munich

It’s leather trousers time! We’re planning our yearly Oktoberfest outing and it’s all about the lederhosen, the crowds, Bavarian hospitality and, of course, the beer. Oktoberfest, confusingly celebrated mainly in September, is an annual festival like no other. Founded in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of King Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (now that must’ve been annoying name to put into a form), the celebration just sort of caught on. By the mid 1800s it was an annual affair and has soldiered on, sometimes literally (the Nazis were big fans), and continued to get bigger and better. Today over […]

Michelin Star Chef Marches Into Town

He got his first Michelin star last year, and now chef Andrew Wong is back with his next restaurant Kym’s, set to open in London’s latest foodie hub, Bloomberg Arcade. For those of us who were around in the 80s, you might recognise Kym’s, that’s because it was the name of Andrew’s parents’ restaurant in 1985 which Andrew and his wife Nathalie reopened as A.Wong in 2012. And keeping it close to his family and community, this new Kym’s will be a celebration of Andrew’s own journey and community. Giving his own interpretation to classic Chinese dishes, Andrew will be […]

Taco It From Me: This Mexican Brunch Is Brilliant

What: If you think bottomless brunches are just groups of us millennials binge drinking and getting rowdy then you’d be wrong, well partially wrong. Some bottomless brunches are much more sophisticated affairs and you’re probably not going to drink any more than our parents’ generation do when they have their dinner parties at the houses they bought when it was easy to get a mortgage (not that I’m bitter). Anyway, we went to one such bottomless brunch, the much more refined margarita brunch at Ella Canta. New? Yes, it launched at the end of the summer and soon the restaurant […]

The US Cities You’re Probably Missing

Have you been to America? Or have you BEEN to America? Most of us have travelled to New York City, ticked off the Empire State Building (don’t bother, go up the Rockerfeller instead, better Instas), and you’ve done Florida, now hating your 10-year-old-self for enjoying Seaworld, and finally you’ve checked out LA, ridden a celebrity tourbus and gotten the Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt. You’ve not been to America. America is vast, and most Americans themselves won’t ever scratch below the surface. But once you’ve done all the obvious places, where do you go next? How do you get under the […]
