Rebounding With Danone

Danone Light & Free

I am looking forward to sharing my New York posts with you next week but before that, the morning after I landed back home, insert serious jet lag, I decided to head to an event with Danone for their brand new yogurt and get my fitness on. Now fitness is something I rarely see myself into or regularly do and after an 8 hour flight probably not one you or I would think you’d see me doing. However I decided to just go for it! I seemed to have a burst of energy the next morning and so was all up for heading to Shoreditch for the event.

Danone had put together an event to launch their tasty new greek yogurt Light & Free which is 0% fat and 0% added sugar with yummy fruit pieces. For the event they had gathered a handle of fitness and lifestyle bloggers to take on a Rebounding class at Frame in Shoreditch, which is a fantastic dance and fitness studio. I can definitely see myself going back here to try some of the classes. They have everything from Beyonce booty shaking, to yoga and *Nsync dance classes – totally serious. I definitely want to try out the yoga, as it’s been in my head to do it for a while now. Read More »

Brasserie Blanc

Brasserie Blanc

Brasserie Blanc is just a few minutes from Waterloo station, opposite the Royal Festival Hall and just up from the Southbank. Raymond Blanc’s French restaurant has just undergone a brand new look and from the outside this is visible with the outdoor terrace and then in the inside with lounge cocktail bar and extended private dining area.

The restaurant is much larger than you might expect inside and the main dining area has been inspired by Raymond’s own kitchen, with handmade ceramics and natural linens have replaced former white tablecloths for a more relaxed feel. It has a mixture of tables and chairs and comfy sofa styles, in which we were seated. We were warmly waited on by our waitress Sabina and she talked through the à la carte menu and Sunday’s special lunch menu.

NKD SKN Pre Shower 10 Minute Tan

 
Nothing I love more than a new tanning product and NKD SKN’s new 10 minute pre shower tan is the latest one for me to try out! The tan is applied 10 minutes before showering and then rinsed off, amazing!

What’s In My In-Flight Beauty Bag?

Whats In My In-Flight Beauty Bag

Later this week I’m heading to New York and I’m probably going to be that person everyone stares at on the plane, as I carry out my in-flight beauty routine with all my products. But as I have dehydrated skin I can’t risk the dehydrated air in the cabin. It’s actually been a massive help to have to do this post earlier as now I know exactly what I’m taking with me and what I managed to cut down on. I love travel sizes but I really love taking my own products more, so I used to always take little pots and bottles. Read More »

Cocotte

Cocotte Review Notting Hill

Cocotte is Notting Hill’s latest rotisserie restaurant, inspired by the chicken takeaway sites popular in Paris and it offers a healthy alternative for sit-in or takeout and for lunch or dinner.

Entering into Cocotte you notice a small but very well put together restaurant. As we were led to our table you realise how light it is at the front of the restaurant, perfect for Instagram opportunities with the rustic wooden tables and then it gets slightly darker at the back where you have a full view of the rotisserie spit. Paula and I both mentioned how Pinterest like the table settings were and how pretty the main restaurant area was. The menu is small so you should expect the items they cook would be awesome or awful. Thankfully the first was the case for Cocotte. Read More »
