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!

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 World​ and Sennheiser​ at NoirW1​; #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 Baptist​, 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!

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?! 

Elle 🙂 x

    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 🙂 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 🙂 see you soon x
