Spring into 2020 by carving out some essential me-time with our top picks for self-care in the city…
HOT & SWEATY
Fierce Grace Hot Yoga
Old Street and locations around London
Taking time to practice yoga is the ultimate act of love – for body, mind and soul. We love this revolutionary yoga practice that combines Hatha, Bikram and Ashtanga yoga with core strength and flexibility work. And, you don’t have to be a fully-fledged yogi – each class offers something different, but you’ll leave them
all feeling really GOOD!
DRAW & EAT
Charcoal Art Club
This is a supper club with a difference. Founded by East London food stylist and author Rosie Ramsden, it combines good food and life drawing in the cosy setting of Narroway Studios, Hackney. What better way to forget your to-do list and immerse yourself in a world of creative concentration.

NEW HAIR, NEW YOU
The Painted Lady
Some hairdressers just cut hair, but this boutique salon takes the time to re-style your hair to perfection. Their talented and experienced team are tuned into the latest trends and have a deep understanding of what works for each individual. (Top tip: if your veins look green you suit warmer shades, if they’re more blue/purple, go for ash tones).
Holborn and locations around London
If eyes are the window to your soul, then the least you can do is get a good pair of curtains! Enter Browhaus, your new go-to for perfect brows and lashes. Their signature ‘Lash in Bloom’ service offers luscious lash extensions to make your eyes pop. Whether you go bold or natural, you’ll love the fluttery feel-good factor.
York Hall Day Spa,
Pampering yourself needn’t be a rare or extravagant treat – as proved by this awarding-winning day spa. With over 50 treatments available, including thermal spa therapies, body wraps and facials, it’s an affordable spot to enjoy alone time. Our favourite is the Wellbeing massage, guaranteed to give you that ‘ahhh’ feeling.
A CLOSE SHAVE
Is there anything quite as indulgent as a traditional British wet shave? Much more than simply de-fuzzing the face, a proper shave is an investment in yourself. The expert barbers at Murdock fully appreciate this, so you can expect a memorable grooming experience – accompanied by whisky too! You’ll feel ready to conquer the world.
