Super food Ice Lollies at Ethos

The sun might not be shining, but is that going to stop us eating ice lollies? No it is not. If anything we need to eat more to encourage the sun to shine (clearly this is how the weather works) especially when they’re the new ice-lollies from vegan and vegetarian restaurant Ethos, because they’re healthy and we all know the importance of health. The vegan lollies are made from coconut or almond milk and use fruit, seeds and natural sweetners. Flavours include mango and chia which is full of anti-oxidants and vitamin C, plus if you eat one whilst listening […]

Located in King’s Cross, a bustling and exciting London neighbourhood, St Pancras Spa offers a welcome retreat from urban life. With the emphasis firmly on the rejuvenation of mind and body, spa facilities include a relaxation […]

Summer of Wellness at Metropolitan

As a group of young, sexy and humble Londoners, The Handbook loves a good weekend of socialising and partying. We wouldn’t exactly be a good guide to London if we didn’t enjoy going out.

In fact, there are plenty of healthy and clean living activities that can be enjoyed on the weekend and Metropolitan by COMO is offering just that with their new Summer of Wellness schedule! This detoxing, bad-vibes-cleansing programme of events will include complimentary yoga glasses with Lulu Lemon […]

5 Places to Get Your Vegetable Fix

Let’s be honest, “I fancy something meatless tonight” is hardly the first thought that crosses your mind when you’re considering heading out for a nice meal.

So, without further ado, here’s the Handbook’s guide to the top 5 vegetarian dishes you’ll find in our glorious capital. Mildred’sWhat: Your go-to vegetarian restaurantWhy: It might sound like a Victorian tearoom, but you can […]

Experiences & Pop-Ups

Come the second Bank Holiday weekend in May we’ll be hitting innocent unplugged, a free, off-grid festival in a secret magical forest location free from, gulp, social media and WiFi. Heck there isn’t even any traditional electricity. But don’t worry, a silent festival wouldn’t be much fun so all power will be generated by solar power or people power (pedals to giant hamster wheels in case you’re wondering). Expect great music from headline acts such as The Correspondents and Norman Jay, lycra-legged dance-offs with old school classic Mr. Motivator, inspiring speakers like Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh, Liberty London Girl […]
