The Calm Before the Storm

The Calm Before the Storm

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by Christmas already? We're dialling back the festivities this week as self-preservation against the onslaught ahead. To combat the pre-Christmas panic, we’re taking it slow, which mostly involves reading, beetroot and standing in a room heated to 35 degrees...

 

Chocolate Beetroot Cake
ONE | BEET THE BLUES

With chocolate beetroot cake. It is not as strange as it sounds – think carrot cake, but with beetroot. Deliciously dark and satisfyingly rich, with the added bonus of being one of your five a day. If Nigella says it’s ok, then it almost certainly is.  

 

Hot Yoga
TWO | SWEAT IT LIKE IT'S HOT

If you live in Burma, you can skip this one, but if you’re one of the many who are heading into a long old winter, hot yoga just might be your salvation. Not just warm, but hot...really hot. Bend and stretch away the present-buying panic, sweat out the festive fear and relax into a steamy state of calm. Leave with you bones thawed and your zen restored. 

 

Narrow Road to the Deep North
THREE | ESCAPE INTO A BOOK

This is one of those books that burrows into your soul and that stays in your thoughts for weeks after you’ve finished it. It is the story of an Australian prisoner of war in World War II, working as a doctor on the Burma Railway under the Japanese. It is devastating and beautiful, and demonstrates how good and bad, courage and pettiness, kindness and evil swirl and coexist in the context of war. Keep your tissues to hand.

 

Illustration Fair
FOUR | GET INSPIRED
We’re off to the London Illustration Fair this weekend, a one-stop shop for some of the most exciting illustrators and designers working today. Alongside workshops and talks there will also be lots of artwork for sale – you never know, might just get some Christmas shopping done.
