Chi Kitchen’s Special ‘Tai Chi’ menu

A Tai Chi menu at a restaurant? No, it is not a list of Tai Chi moves to choose from, but a menu of healthy Asian dishes. The menu has been created by Executive Chef Ping Coombes, of Masterchef fame, aiming to embrace the philosophy of Tai Chi in food form. The menu promotes health, wellbeing and most importantly, balance – much like Tai Chi. So to balance out the healthy chicken and Chinese herb soup with goji berries, enjoy a deep fried tuna and avocado sushi roll. Or to balance out the quinoa salad with cucumber, cherry tomato, egg, […]

Detox with Cocktails by FACEGYM at Bluebird

January is the month of detox. Whether we keep to those detoxing plans is another issue but Bluebird in 2017 will be on hand to help you keep to those promises you made to yourself.

The first, Glorious Greens, made from cucumber, ginger, green apple, rosemary, lime and spinach is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins. Plus spinach is a great collagen booster, so no […]

Seedlip Dry January Takeover

Oh January, that month full of promise. With our best intentions we head to the gym, clutching our green smoothies, but sooner or later, temptation wins – it’s an all too familiar cycle. Enter Seedlip, masters of distilled non-alcoholic spirits. They’ll be taking over The Bloomsbury Club Bar for three days in January, hosting a dry January event, keeping that temptation at bay. Guests will be treated to a dry January cocktail menu, which boasts drinks such as the Espreseedlip Martini, composed of Seedlip-infused coffee, almond milk, cocoa nibs and gomme syrup; and the signature Seedlip and Tonic, composed of […]

Flavour Garden: Your New Lunch Spot

Organic, sustainable and ethically sourced. These are words we all like to hear when it comes to our food, if anything, at least it makes us feel better about ourselves!

Serving food all day, the restaurant boasts a menu full of natural food, from açaí or yoghurt bowls in the morning, to salads such as teriyaki salmon, kale, beet and edamame at lunch.

La Parisienne Style Experiences by Sofitel St James

Luxury accompanied by bliss and coated with decadence. That’s the only way to describe the La Parisienne Style Services Sofitel London St James has unveiled in honour of its French heritage, coinciding with the La Parisienne photography exhibition – a collection of 32 photographs of some of the world’s most glamorous and iconic women from the 1950s to the present day, displayed in the hotel until November and accessible by guests and non-guests, free of charge. Alongside the exhibition (which will go on to tour Sofitel hotels around the world) the hotel has created a collection of stylish, Parisian inspired experiences in partnership […]

An Alternative Night Out with Hemsley and Hemsley

Once upon a time, a night of meditation, thought-provoking short films, and speakers and artists would carry an air of pretentiousness and elitism. To some, it may still be the case, but to others, it may be an alternative to the traditional night out. In just over a month, all of these activities will be available to be enjoyed at an event called The Gathering. Described as a “conscious cabaret,” this event will be the first of many installments of holistic nights out for socialising, clean food, and spiritual cleansing. The Gathering was started by Will Williams of Will Williams Meditation […]

Farmopolis: Putting the Green in Greenwich

 The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, a key date in London’s horticultural and social calendar, but have you ever wondered what happens to all the flowers after? Are they planted somewhere else? Or are they left to wither, each petal dropping off, one by one…a little flower graveyard? Well banish that thought because launching this weekend on the Jetty at Greenwich Peninsula is Farmopolis, a floating garden which has saved and rehomed tens of thousands of plants from the flower show. Created by Secret Productions (the co-founders of Wilderness Festival) and Wayward (the UK’s leading art-design-farm practice), the new garden will […]

We’re going to put our hands up and say we’re are guilty of wearing our gym kit when we aren’t always going to work out… Sometimes you don’t want to get dressed at the weekend, sometimes you want to give the impression that you’re about to work out even if you’re actually just off to brunch. And if anyone knows about great active wear it’s Australian brand, Lorna Jane. Of course sometimes we do actually wear our kit to exercise and we’re big fans of the daily classes that take place in the Lorna Jane flagship store in Covent Garden […]

Get Involved With Free Floating Yoga

You may have thought you had had enough of being surrounded by water what with the monsoon season we’ve inexplicably found ourselves in the last few months but instead of being wetted by above how about sitting serenely above the water? The Floating Classroom at Paddington Central will be transforming itself into a yoga haven for weekly classes beginning 26th July at 6pm. Away from the distraction of a normal gym, attendees will be able to exercise in a calm, serene atmosphere where your mind and body are given more of a chance to unwind compared to that of an overstimulated gym environment.
