  • Vaseline Cocoa: Understanding the Benefits of Chocolate

    If you frequently indulge in a chocolate party for one and find yourself guilt-ridden afterwards, then maybe it’s about time you fully understood the benefits of the dark stuff. Chocolate is known for its uplifting and mood enhancing qualities –…

    LBQ Brand Focus #6: Wahanda

    Sometimes after a long, hard week there’s nothing better than a visit to the spa. Or hairdressers. Or nail salon. Or masseur. We all need a bit of pampering every now and then to keep our bits in working order,…

    Spa Treatment: Lush’s ‘The Comforter’

    In a city that never sleeps, I rarely do either. I find it incredibly difficult to switch off and get a good night’s sleep, let alone spend some quality time looking after my body and mind. It’s a good job…

    The Hayfever Facial at Michaeljohn

    Although we seem to have been living in what seems like an eternal Winter, finally Spring has most definitely sprung. There may be blossoms on the trees, daffodils sprouting from the ground and bumble bees buzzing around our heads, but…

    Reflexology at Neal’s Yard, Camden

    I’m getting quite into my alternative therapies and natural remedies. I find it utterly fascinating that in 2013, with all our technology and advances in science, that we’re increasingly turning to remedies and therapies that have been around for hundreds…

    The ‘Cold and Flu’ Facial

    As a Londoner I spend 50% of my life either with a cold, fighting off a cold or being worried that I’ll pick up another cold on the Underground. Once the chills take hold of one person in your office,…

    Ainhoa City Spa: St Pancras

    Sometimes I think the best thing about social media is the ability to connect with people and brands you wouldn’t normally know existed. This week I was tweeted by Ainhoa City Spa to let me know they’ve just opened up…

    Pedicures in the Cowshed

    If you thought I was going to start talking about painting the toenails of some uber stylish cow folk, then you’d be wrong. A few weeks ago I went down to the Cowshed salon in Shoreditch House, London for a…

    The Aromatherapy Associates Boutique

    When I heard that one of my favourite and indulgent brands was opening up their very own boutique in the heart of London, I could barely keep myself from crossing off the dates on my calendar in anticipation. Just opened…

    Anesis: The God of Spas

    Fish pedicures are old news. You can get them as easily as a can of coke now, even fitting one in while buying a pair of shoes in your local shopping centre. The intrigue and excitement of a bizarre treatment…

    Fishy Feet

    I’ve seen a lot about fish pedicures over the last year or so, as well as hearing some pretty horrific stories from people that have literally taken the plunge. There’s something a bit unnerving about something nibbling on your foot…
