SKC… What could it be?

October 1, 2014
So, as promised, here’s the post on SKC. It stands for South Kensington Club (or Seriously Kick-ass Club as I think I may come to refer to it as). The exclusive soon-to-launch club is dedicated to health and fitness. It has a state-of-the-art gym, Turkish Hammam (sauna) Russina Banyas, (a steam room heated with firewood) a Watsu pool (a warm, clear water pool with a depth at which someone can, with feet spread and knees bent, settle down into the water as if sitting in a chair and complete a series of exercises), treatment rooms, concierge service AND MORE!! What more?… Continue reading...

Nama Foods: Notting Hill Raw Restaurant

September 27, 2014
I’d been looking forward to lunch at Nama Foods all week.

London Restaurant Favourite: The Good Life Eatery

August 29, 2014
Unassumingly snuggled in next to Starbucks on Sloane Avenue is the health mecca that is The Good Life Eatery. It’s relatively new in London but that hasn’t stopped it from being one of the most-loved tried, tested, talked about restaurants in town. Warm exposed brickwork, cosy booths and wooden tables make it homely and although the food is healthy it manages to be hearty too. The signature ‘Good Life’ salad is a rainbow plate of marinated kale, roasted sweet potato, lentils, red and black quinoa, toasted walnuts, Goji berries, nutritional yeast, with orange tahini vinaigrette with the option to add ‘extra protein’: salmon, chicken, avocado or prawns.… Continue reading...
