September 10, 2014
It will be “a hotel that transcends anything so far created” declared François Blanc, the celebrated founder of Group Monte-Carlo SBM which built Hôtel de Paris in 1864 under the auspices of Prince Charles III of Monaco.

Glacéau Smartwater Launch Event

September 4, 2014
To celebrate the launch of glacéau smartwater in the UK, mindfulness expert Belinda Freeman (founder of Mindfulmind) hosted a mindfulness session inspired by the water cycle, at the new private members club, Library. Belinda encouraged us to have an awareness of how our bodies and our minds feel in the present, taking time each day to center ourselves and understand what and why we may be feeling a certain way. By doing this, Belinda believes that it’s possible to develop a calmer, more factual response to situations rather than getting overwhelmed by emotions (which are chemical reactions, not facts she reminds us) thereby allowing us to handle tough, stressful situations better and lead a more fulfilled life.… Continue reading...
