Guest Post: Boutique Run in Battersea Park

Claire Watson got in touch last week to offer us (well, the female half of us, anyway – sorry guys!) a discount on a great event coming up in July. It involves running in the park, massage, goodie bags and champagne to keep the spirit up at an after-party. Plus, it’s for a good cause, so I asked her to share the details here….

 

Any London ladies who love running will know that the Sunday morning runs can be a bit of a bind on your Saturday night social life, but there’s a new run that’s happening this summer which will let you lovely ladies enjoy your running whilst spending quality time with your girlfriends.

Boutique Run is a unique night out for the girls: a scenic 5km or 10km followed by entertainment and pampering.  We’re talking free champagne, hot showers, massage, a fabulous after-party and most importantly a special ‘Bouti’ bag full of goodies.

The evening’s festivities will be taking place in Battersea Park, 6pm on 10th July 2010.

And if you fancy an even more guilt free night out why not do something good for charity? Boutique Run is supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer, a pioneering charity saving lives and changing futures, through research campaigning and education – removing the fear of breast cancer for good.

What’s more, we have secured a 25% discount off the entry fee for you all.  To claim the discount register online and enter code: OBS2.

Boutique Run will be best enjoyed with your girlfriends and you can sign them up for 25% off too, so why not guarantee them a place as well and enjoy this great night out together.

Country Living Spring Fair: Alexandra Woods

In case you missed yesterday morning’s post, I’ve been given a cool opportunity to contact a few people involved with this year’s Country Living Spring Fair, happening in Islington from March 24-28. 

This is Alexandra Woods: illustrator, painter and designer. Her work has a real country living flair that fits in perfectly with next week’s exhibition. She’s given us a bit of insight into her inspiration, let us know what to expect from a visit to her booth and shared a few photos of her work.

LLO: Tell us a bit about your contribution to the Country Living Spring Fair; what sort of products will you have on sale?
AW:
 A selection of my art, design and illustration range is showing at the Country Living Spring Fair 2010 including a new collection of designs printed onto household items. With a continued interest in good food and sound husbandry with a love of the countryside, I specialise in portraits of British farm animals, capturing the essence of their spirit. Combining skills sharpened through successful completion of Bachelor and Masters degrees in Textile Design and Illustration, I also transform observations of everyday objects into striking designs printed onto household items.

LLO: Your work is inspired by the British countryside and farm animals. Where is the best place to go for a taste of that lifestyle while still in London?
AW:
Early studies for the bovine portraits were made at Petersham Meadows, nestled between the foot of Richmond Hill and the Thames towpath.

LLO: Are there any other artists exhibiting at the fair you are especially looking forward to seeing?
AW:
As a new exhibitor to the fair, I am looking forward to seeing the wide range of art created under the shared theme of the countryside.

For more of Alexandra’s work, see her website: www.alexandrawoods.com

Sheba, Brick Lane Curry House: 50% Off Voucher

Sheba’s been called a “hidden gem”, one of many curry houses lining the infamous Brick Lane in East London. The restaurant has been around for about 30 years and has been picked out for a number of awards like Chef of the Year in the Brick Lane Curry Festival a few years ago and recently recommended by View and Toptable. I have yet to check out any of the curry houses in this massive Bangladeshi community, but it’s on my to do list.

The editor of VoucherCodes.co.uk was thoughtful enough to email me a link to a 50% off voucher at Sheba which he’s invited me to share with all of you. So I may take my boyfriend and his Bengali taste buds down there one night before the offer expires at the end of the month. If you want to follow suit, check out the links below and enjoy.
