I visited VWSkincare to try the new 'Body & Mind Rewind' session, which includes a full body massage and a facial.
Tracey put me right at ease straight away, and made the full body massage and age smart facial treatment feel like it lasted a lot longer than 1hour 45 minutes!.
As part of the massage, a hot stone was put on my back, while I had a foot and leg massage. Tracey then moved to my upper back, which I totally needed (with my stress levels!). Tracey really got to the stress knots in my muscles and this was my favourite part of the session.
The Age Smart facial was also fab. I had a good consultation before and afterwards, where the therapist talked through my cleansing routine, noted concerns (I got to take home a copy of this) and also gave me advice and Dermalogica product samples to take home.
I had my face steamed, cleaned, exfoliated, toned and moisturised, and afterwards my complexion genuinely looked miles better than it has in ages.
I really was de-stressed when I left and went home considering when I book in again!
Would highly recommend, especially if you are feeling stressed!

Been meaning to visit here ever since I saw the building work going on a few months back. Finally got the chance last night when I met a friend in the Bank area and we needed a bar that did food.
First impression is a 'wow' at the size of it - it has a couple of floors and tons of space for drinking and eating. The decor is 'fresh' lots of wood and green colours def. has a garden feel about it. We headed for the basement bar as the tables with big comfy chairs looked cosy enough to stay all night in.
Once in the bar we spotted a large private dining room (didn't get a chance to ask if there is a fee/minimum spend for using), but one to keep in view!.
We ordered food from the bar (I believe it's table service upstairs). I had a crispy duck salad, which was superb - a generous amout of duck and tasty sauce, great value at £8.50. My friend went for the fish pie which she said had loads of good quality fish in it.
My friend also commented that the ladies toilets were really nice, when I went in there I agreed, lots of cubicles, space for make up and nice soaps/hand creams. I met another lady in there who claimed 'these toilets are fabulous!' how many times do people say that?!
We did have a little hiccup though, when a waiter cleared our plates he knock over our bottle of wine. Despite losing most of the bottle, and it covering one of my trouser legs and my new coat, when I asked for replacement wine he refused. I kept asking (eventually asking to see a manager) but didn't get anywhere. It was an accident but still, that was £15 worth of wine!. I eventually caught a manager walking past and explained what happened. He offered to pay for the dry cleaning on my coat (but I wasn't too worried about it) I asked him to replace our wine and he immediately brought over another bottle so we were more than happy with that. I think the poor waiter was worried he would get in trouble but accidents do happen.
Overall we had a really great evening.
We could hear a DJ playing upstairs so I think we will be back for dance!
One last thing, my friend was reading 'Stylist' magazine in the bar and they actually had a half page review of the Folly bar in there, so if its good enough for them...
Recommended for dates, groups of friends and work events.

Love this pub!
Its a proper old gin palace but you probably won't notice as you'll be too busy shakin' ya thing to the live rock bands they have down here every week.
You'll def find me jumping around in here when Feedback are playing, they are a great covers band playing anything from The Who through to Kings of Leon.
Some of the other bands are great too check out the website for listings.
Prices are cheap, free to get in if your early, £3 if not, cloakroom is free, drinks are usual pub prices.
There is a car park but its small and gets full early. Nearest station is Seven Kings (5 min walk).
I go here about once a month and have never had a bad night, the only thing I would say is wear flat shoes as plenty of dancing = crippled feet if wearing stilettos, I speak from experience!

Finally got round to having dinner here last night.
Totally agree which ljrich's comments about wearing loose clothing! we had a 2-4-1 tasting menu which meant we got a 'bit of everything' for £14 each (bargain!).
The dishes didnt look very big (we kept saying 'is that for four people?') but believe me we were stuffed by the end - still managed to force down the ginger and fig ice cream that was included though! I thought my stomach might actually burst if I moved too quick, so we stayed a good 45 mins after we finished our food to let it all digest!
Good selection of veggie and meat dishes, and one of my friends who was there is Indian and he said it was good/authentic so he probably knows better than me.
I would def go back, its a great venue if there is a group of you as you get to share lots of dishes.

This review is for the afternoon tea only:
Had the new 'TLsee' afternoon tea here last week, it was one of my favourite afternoon teas. In addition to the usual scones, cakes and sandwiches, you also get a strawberry smoothie, and the point of this special tea - a plate of chocolates and biscuits arranged as a view of London. Think a blue icing river Thames, a chocolate Big Ben, and a biscuit black cab etc. It def has the wow factor - see my picture which I will add above soon! Tea is £32 (£42 for champagne tea) but as we arrived at 6.00pm we got it for £23 (£28 for the champagne tea) a total bargain. Check the website for info and make sure you check out my pictures!
Okay pictures wont upload sorry but please see these ones:
27 High Street Wanstead, Wanstead, London E11 2AA
The most expensive place to eat in Wanstead, but one of the nicest. European food of top quality, this small restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and netral decor. It does a great Valentines day set menu, and its certainly a place to take someone you want to impress. This place was featured on Gordon Ramseys F word the other day...
123 High Street Wanstead, Wanstead, London E11 2RL
A great shop for interesting homewares and gifts. And they stock those 'Viva' t-shirts (you know the ones I mean!). Great for Union Jack themed homewares, storage baskets, candles and the odd bit of jewellery. Its a bit like Cath Kidston...
1B High Street Wanstead, Wanstead, London E11 2AA
This shop is full of interesting bits and bobs. Its such a mixture of items its hard to describe - they sell cake stands, door mats, mugs, and greeting cards to name a few things! Its one of those treasure trove places that you need time to look through to find that 'perfect thing' you need to adorn your lovely home. I can't walk past without popping in for a browse! If you cannot get over to Wanstead it has a website now : http://www.horsfallandwright.co.uk/ Have a browse!
The Pavillion Brushfield Street, London E1 6AA
This is one of the newer (if not the newest) branches of PV. The decor is much more modern than some of the others (had to look twice at first to make sure it was the same chain!). Lots of tables both inside and out and a huge long counter full of cakes that make you drool! A great place to waste an afternoon away. Don't expect speedy service though, this is def. not an 'eat and run' establishment if you are in a hurry choose one of the many other cafes/restaurants within Spitalfields Market. Oh FYI this place is a 2 minute walk from Liverpool Street station (Bishopsgate exit).
The Brunswick Centre, London SW1H 9AB
This branch of PV is not as good as some of the others, its smaller for a start, and sometimes hard to get a seat. It lacks the charm of the Soho branch and therefore you don't get the same atmosphere. However apart from that its the same old PV, exquisite cakes and pastries, coffee and hot chocolate. Still a welcome retreat after a hard days shopping!
