It’s been a few months since I’ve shared an Elle About Town post; there were lots of products I loved and shared in Elle Love’s but I hadn’t been to that many events or new classes! Now my main triathlon and swimming training is out of the way, I have time to mix up what I do!
Here’s what I’ve been up to or plan on getting up to in and about London Town!
Events: #LJInspired Event with SportStylist
Lorna Jane just launched their new book; Inspired! SportStylist hosted an awesome celebration at the Laboratories Spa in North London. Unfortunately, I missed the class with Carly (LJ Ambassador) but I made it in time to catch up with some of the lovely ladies in attendance and chat to some of the brand representatives.
Keep an eye out on FB and the blog for my thoughts on the book! My coffee table won’t be the same!
Events: Graze Pop Up Snack Bar
Last week, Graze launched their #goodtogo range. If you know the brand, you’ll know them for supplying their yummy snack boxes via mail order subscription; but now, you will be able to pick them up in selected stores like Boots, Sainsburys and WHSmiths!
Of the 12 varieties that will be available my favourites are Juicy Peach & Raspberry (the uber healthy, one of my 5 a day choice) and Chocolate Pretzel Dippers (as my indulgent yet only 141 calories option). I’ve had the pleasure of trying all 12, and quite honestly can say there is not one I wouldn’t eat again! It’s great to see some good ‘ol favourites in there (I used to subscribe when they launched 7 years ago and I was based in an office) as well as some new recipes!
Classes: Groove Cycle Dance
I finally made it to a class! SJ invited me to one of her GrooveCycle classes and I jumped at the chance! I signed up for the dance version due to my schedule and it turned out to be just what it said on the tin! We learnt a choreographed routine on the bike and it took me right back to being at theatre school every Saturday busting some moves!
I wasn’t sure I was even gonna survive past the warm up; don’t go thinking this isn’t a workout! But I made it to the end and literally needed food and my bed by the time we were done 60 minutes later! I urgently recommend you check out the website and have a gander at the awesome videos!
Next time (because there will be a next time!) I would love to video the routine so you can see what the heck I looked like! I’m sure how I feel in my head doesn’t quite translate to reality…
Events: London Bloggers Picnic in the Park
The London Bloggers crew got together again for some summer sun in the park one Saturday afternoon! We chatted all things London and all things blogging whilst supping on prosecco and nibbling on all sorts of snacks.

I also caught up with some of the gang at the Olympus PEN Party; it was an evening with a talk from an Olympus sponsored blogger, the chance for us to get our photo taken by a top fashion photographer and a few drinks and nibbles!
