Elle About Town, August & September 2015

I’m back, eventing, as you might like to call it! I’ve been up to some fun stuff in the last couple of months when training was a little more relaxed! 

Here’s what I’ve been up to or plan on getting up to in and about London Town! 

Events: Relaunch of 9BAR

Last month, I got to attend an awesome Pilates class and nutrition talk to celebrate the relaunch of 9BAR. I’ve loved these bars since I first came across them some years ago and it was great to see them going from strength to strength.

I love their campaign with SolarAid too where for every 9BAR that is bought, a child in Africa receives a nightlight. It’ gives me a real feel good factor when I’m snacking on these super – seeded energy bars! Check out their website for more information on the campaign as well as all of their products!

And, I’m not (very) selfish so I have a selection of 9BARs to share with one of my just as amazing readers! Entries are via the Rafflecopter widget just below the competition image here…

Events: GynaeHealth launch of GynaeCheck 

As you will have read, September is Gynaecological Cancer Awareness month. I shared a post with you about the 9 need to knows for cervical screening, and the launch of Target 100,000.

We had previously been along to an event at Tanya’s Cafe in Chelsea and I took a few pictures I wanted to share as the (all raw) food was amazing!

Classes: Jasyoga with Brooks Running 

So I wrote up the whole event with Brooks Running and somehow forgot to mention one of the most valuable parts of the evening; the post run yoga session with Jasyoga! It was basically everything that I needed after a run. She made sure we stretched in all the right places but didn’t make it too strenuous!

Events: #SoundsofSennheiser 

This week I attended an evening with Currys PC Worldโ€‹ and Sennheiserโ€‹ at NoirW1โ€‹; #SOUNDSOFSENNHEISER

It was such an informative evening! As a fitness instructor, music plays a huge role in what I do so learning a little more about what goes into the sound industry was eye opening!

I got to try my hand at DJ’ing with John the Baptistโ€‹, learnt all about Vinyl with Juno Records and then got to hear all about the range from Sennheiser including the Momentum 2!

I was also lucky enough to win ‘Best Instagram Picture’ from the event and am looking forward to receiving a pair of Sennheiser Momentum 2 headphones!

Check out the post on the Currys PC World website {here}; Lisa of Girl At The Rock Show wrote such a comprehensive post {here} as well, so go and have a read of that too!

Events: Launch of Limited Edition Withing’s Activite Pop Watch

I got to start a Friday with a Ballet Barre class looking over the River Thames in London. Can’t really ask for more. We also got gifted the watch which I adore (so far because it is pink, I can swim in it, I don’t need to charge it, I can control it via my phone) and I’m sure as I get to grips with it I will share my full thoughts with you!

Coming Up….

Yoga with Madelaine Shaw  
Popular blogger and nutritionist Madelaine is leading a yoga class with RED magazine and I figured I’d pop along, get my stretch on and meet the lady herself! There’s a Q&A after the session so I’d better start thinking up one I can ask. If you have any though, pop them in the comments section at the end of the post!

Hever Castle Triathlon 
As if you don’t know; my final triathlon this month. It’s a teeny tiny starter distance so it should be nice and chilled meaning I can have lots of fun!! Keep an eye out for my post with #MyMoments!

Pop Brixton Wellbeing Week 
I’m off to sample a yoga class at this week long event later in September!

Brooks SS16 Preview 
After being a little bit in love with the Fall / Winter kit I’m excited to see what Brooks have for SS16! Follow me on Instagram to get a little cheek preview yourself (I’m not into snapchat yet! hmm, actually I should maybe get on that! Stay tuned!)!

And you can wait for the rest, right?!

What fun stuff is coming up for you in the next month or so?!

    That watch is gorgeous! Definitely the prettiest activity tracker watch I've seen! Is it good? Yoga with Madeleine Shaw sounds good too, hope you have fun ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      So far so good! I kinda forget that it is even more than a watch! I'm keen to see what data it provides after a run / swim. Was happy to get it cos the watch I usually wear (other than a gps) wasn't a practical option for exercising and I was always scared of breaking it. And thank lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ see you soon x
