Attend an Art Therapy Workshop

When: 13 July

Where: The Vedary, Worli

Why: If you haven’t yet heard of The Vedary, it’s about time you did. Combining modern science with ancient wisdom and time-tested practices, The Vedary is a unique holistic centre dedicated to achieving optimum health.

Their approach extends beyond treatments to events such as the upcoming Art Therapy & Meditation session: a workshop using art as a medium to facilitate communication and to help people explore different aspects of their own personalities. Expect to experience a blend of psychotherapy, creativity and yoga/meditation as part of the afternoon. In an added bonus, you get to hang a new work of art at your home after! More details here.


Reader Offer: A Scootsy special for your staycation

When: Wednesday 10 July – Wednesday 24 July

Why: With the weekend putting the spotlight on the sporting events of the season it’s but natural you’ll want to stay in and flick between the Wimbledon Cricket World Cup finals.

The only thing you really need to complete your sports-watch staycation is a match-day feast from your favourite restaurant. Which is why, I’ve teamed up with Scootsy for a special reader discount on your next order. Simply quote FOODIE20 at the time of checkout, for a flat 20% off your total order*!

* Code is valid for one-time use only between Wednesday 10 July – Wednesday 24 July. The code does not apply to Foodhall groceries.

{ Of course, if you happen to be in London for the main events – you can always explore the best of where to eat & do in this cosmopolitan city, here. }


Restaurant of the Week

Where: Izumi

Why: With the rains relentlessly in full swing, soul-stirring comfort food is the order of the day. If you’re brave enough to step out, there are quite a few restaurants which will make it worth your while.

My top pick this week would be Izumi, where the slow-cooked ramen bowls are the stuff of legend, luxuriating in a melange of flavours. There’s plenty by way of gyoza, yakitori and of course, sushi here too! Read more, here. 

Until next week, folks! x
