Mid January (the 13th to be precise) saw me spend an evening with healthy, new yoghurt drink Optiwell, a bunch of bloggers, and my newest collaborator here on the blog (more of that soon) registered Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist Laura Clark, at the Cowshed in Shoreditch House, London.
First up, I popped into the MAC store in St Pancras and they touched up my eye make up giving me a smokey eye and I popped for a meeting at ACE Hotel with my friend, publicist and business partner Hayley.
We couldn’t help ourselves and snapped a few street style shots in East London.
Here I am in my Mum’s vintage 40’s coat she bought in the 80’s, velvet with fur trim. Leather knee-highs c/o Jones Bootmaker.
After all that posing (ha), it was time to head to a pamper night with Optiwell and have some (more) fun.
I was half way through #veganuary at the time, so didn’t taste the dairy delights on offer that night, but I have since, and can vouch that they are truly creamy, fruity and utterly delicious-and even my kids love them too.
With no added sugar and only 64 cals per 200ml glass, they are perfect in smoothies, particularly as breakfast on the go, something I opt for (get it) a lot, being a busy full time blogger and mum of two.
It’s these #smallchanges that make a big difference.
We even took the drinks to the park too.
And the kids loved them as well!
But, back to the night-
After a relaxing massage, making new friends, and forgoing a mani (I know right, but I literally just had one on a shoot #spoiltblogger)-I watched as fruity smoothies were blended- and scoffed vegan chickpea and tabbouleh salad.
So lovely that Lela of Lela London has become a mate now!
I was also filmed by Optiwell’s crew on what my go-to treats are, and as it was January and #veganuary no less, I shared it was virtuous hummous and crudites (Gwynnie would be proud)- if you’d asked me in December, it was dark choc on tap and far too many crackers though.
And here’s the film!
Admittedly, I did feel a little bit flattered when the director said I looked like a young Nigella. What a charmer!
Have you tried Optiwell yet?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
