A Movie Watching Money Raiser at Movies with Mind

Little Miss Sunshine is one of those films that paints such a big smile across the face, a breezy film embellished with satire, beauty queens and the consequence of travelling hundreds of miles across the country with your full family, in a clapped-out old VW. So, when we heard that is just one of the feel-good films playing at Movies with Mind we were ready to get our popcorn perched. Movies with Mind is East London’s al fresco experience in aid of mental health charity Mind in Hackney. The outdoor cinema experience will see attendees sunning themselves in London Fields, […]

We Stay at Bath’s Best Hotel

What: I grew up near Bath and whenever we visited to go shopping it would inevitably rain. So much so it’s now a running joke. In the midst of my teenage years when I first started reading Austen and was a little obsessed with Jennifer Ehle’s performance in the BBC’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, I use to walk up to the Royal Crescent and imagine the parties that took place in the Georgian period and how I would live there one day. It would be raining, and I’d probably be all dramatic and angsty. Now I look at the […]

Rooftop Yoga Comes to Waterloo

Rooftop yoga, we wanted to call it roga, you know like doga is dog yoga, but apparently roga is running yoga, so we’re settling for rotoga… Whilst we’re waiting for the yogis to adopt that phrase, we’ll tell you about Park Plaza London Waterloo who, a year after they launched, are hosting free rooftop yoga classes on its rooftop terrace this summer. Taking place on Saturday 11th August and Saturday 1st September, the classes will take place at 8am so you can start your weekend feeling rebalanced, revitalised and maybe a tad sleepy.

Here’s some suggestions for how to use your evenings to the max, and without even visiting a bar… Escape Rooms  Escape rooms are hard enough, let alone if you add alcohol into the mix, you need your brains sharp to work out the clues, not slightly tipsy with G&Ts.

Forget The Footy, I’m Going Human Zorbing On Ice

Tomorrow the world will go football mad as the World Cup kicks off in Russia. I’m going to be honest and admit that I’m not a footy fan (we might or might not have gotten complaints that my Where To Watch The World Cup guide yesterday wasn’t up-beat enough) but when your only reference point is a shortlived Subuteo phase* aged nine it’s tricky to get onboard. Thankfully those guys at QUEENS on Queensway have the perfect antidote: Human Zorbing On Ice: World Cup Edition. The concept is simple, their 12,000 square metre ice rink is transformed into a very […]

Things to do Outdoors

Sunrise Workouts with HEX

When the sun is out, everyone acts a little differently. For one, we talk about the weather even more than usual, insist on walking absolutely everywhere, whilst getting our celeb on donning sunglasses indoors, at all times. It’s without a doubt however, that the sun makes it a little easier to pull on the gym gear and do some outdoor exercise of some sort. Knowing this, John Lewis’ Summer of Sound on the Roof has announced the launch of their sunrise HIIT training sessions from fitness experts HEX. If the word sunrise is sending shivers down your spine, wondering at […]

The Rooftop Exercise Class You Don’t Want to Miss

We don’t want to jinx it, but we think (touch wood) that we might be out of winter, spring might actually be here. Suddenly exercising outside actually seems like something we would want to do, spending our Sunday mornings on a rooftop fills us with joy rather than terror at how many layers we’d need to put on. Talking of Sundays, exercise and rooftops (as you do) luxury fitness studio, DEFINE.London has just join forces with The Trafalgar St James to unveil a new wellness programme. Taking place every Sunday from the 13th May (excluding the Bank Holiday) for six […]
