Fancy a 2 ½ year, 51,916km bicycle ride through 29 countries?

As a toddler, Jeremy Scott suffered from a huge hole in his aorta valve that cruelly denied him the opportunity to live the life of a normal healthy child. At just four years of age Jeremy underwent Open Heart Surgery at the hands of renowned surgeon Sir Brian Barratt-Boyes. Thirty four years later with practically no experience or training, Jeremy took the unbelievably courageous plunge and began a 2 ½ year, 51,916km bicycle ride that would see him cycle through 29 countries from London to New Zealand.

c) Jeremy Scott

While separate encounters with the Iranian and Filipino Mafia had Jeremy fearing for his life, it was the beautiful acts of kindness offered by strangers throughout the world that will forever warm his heart.

BOOTCAMP PILATES WILL DAZZLE, ENERGISE, AND INSPIRE YOU TO BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN B!

PILATES PIONEERS

Since setting up our first studio in 2005, Bootcamp Pilates has been a proud pioneer of Dynamic Reformer Pilates. We brought this revolutionary workout to London from the US and believe that it’s simply the best, fastest and safest way to transform your posture, strength and shape.

   HOW DO WE LOOK?

Bootcamp Pilates aims to dazzle, energise and challenge, not scare you into submission. Above all, we want to inspire you – whoever you are and whatever your goals – to be the best that you can B.

From our website to our Twitter feed, Bootcamp Pilates has a brand new identity. We hope you like it. And more to the point, we think it gives a better impression of what we’re all about. We’re aware the word “Bootcamp” can evoke harsh, scary sergeant majors. So, we’ve replaced our old military look with a bold, contemporary twist on artist Norman Wilkinson’s striking dazzle camouflage. Originally used to disguise ships in World War I, we’ve adapted Norman’s design to reveal a bit more about ourselves through our very own dazzle B logo.

WHAT IS DYNAMIC REFORMER PILATES?

Rather than mats, Dynamic Reformer Pilates classes involve exercising on Reformer machines, based on a century-old invention by Joseph Pilates himself. Imprisoned in a First World War camp, Pilates wanted to help bedridden fellow inmates keep their muscles moving and stop them wasting. Using patients’ hospital beds and bedsprings, plus any materials he could lay his hands on, he created a clever system of springs, straps and pulleys – enabling resistance exercise while lying down.

Expertly designed and totally safe, our Reformer machines are essentially a sophisticated version of Pilates’ original design, providing a highly effective, no-impact stretching and toning workout. They are kind to your skeleton and joints, and help lengthen and strengthen your muscles. As for the dynamic part of our workout, you’ll find a Bootcamp Pilates class highly energetic, invigorating, inventive and enjoyable: something different every time and with a stimulating soundtrack to boot. As a result, it’s a fantastic way to lose weight and gain a more aligned, toned body in a matter of weeks.

Bootcamp pilates has donated a voucher for 10 bootcamp classes for fundraising at 46 Bal Polski. Come to Bal, join in the the fun and you could win this life-changing experience!

SRMT is not just for athletes and active people, it benefits everyone. We all create tension and weakness in our bodies. It is usually the product of poor posture habits, over use (work and exercise) and sometimes just a genetic predisposition. My role is to correct those imbalances; releasing tension, improving tone, muscle function and improved range of movement.

SRMT is based on Western anatomical and physiological research and experience. It uses Swedish massage techniques, combined with modern advanced stretching and soft tissue release by manipulating soft tissue (muscle, tendons, ligaments and fascia).

SUGARING is the next hair removal trend you are going to be obsessed with.

Your sugared smooth body is literarily minutes away. Win this voucher and book your appointment for the ultimate body hair removal and gentle exfoliation . Your skin will thank you with a glow.

sugaring london

If  you have not heard of sugaring before it’s a method of removing unwanted hair in the natural direction of growth by applying a mixture of lemon juice, sugar, and water to the skin and then peeling it off together with the hair. Developed by ancient Egyptians who considered a hairless body synonymous with royalty, class and prosperity, sugaring has provided an effective cosmetic solution since the early ages. The sugaring paste we use is so natural you can eat it. Our therapists are the best in the industry. They are trained, qualified and insured in the “art of sugaring” and know how to apply the sugar paste so that it’s less painful than waxing. Besides the obvious benefit of hair removal sugaring does not adhere to live skin cells, nourishes the skin and therefore actually improves the TEXTURE of your skin and who doesn’t want to have silky, smooth, delicious skin.

​Nervous about getting sugared ? Don’t be!  Our expertise lays in The Hollywood & The Brazilian.  We have done over a thousand bikini treatments and have developed a technique that is quick with the minimum discomfort.  Our sugaring paste is applied at body temperature, which makes it safe for all areas of the body and removes any risk of burning. Good to know: our unique sugaring treatment will get rid of all ingrown hairs that you can get when you wax or shave.

ORGANIC AIRBRUSH:  Believe us when we say, you’ve never had a tan quite like ours. We don’t use orange or green dyes in our organic tanning solutions. Our tan is 100% natural & organic, sophisticated and paraben-free. The bronzer we use is made of caramel or cacao. You will never leave us orange or intoxicated – only with our amazing organic California tan that is ! We don’t “spray-tan” but “Organic Airbrush”. This means that the mist that comes out of our airbrush-gun is very fine and never leaves you patchy. We will change your perception of spray tanning forever!

sugaring is a real thing. Its your thing.

Wax has been known to remove more than just the hair, since it can adhere directly to live skin cells, which makes waxing painful and irritating. Wax cannot be applied to an area more than twice at the most.
Sugar cannot adhere to live skin cells. Why, you wonder? Live cells are wet, and because sugar is water soluble, it will not adhere to live skin cells. lt will extract the hair and exfoliate the dead skin cells, helping to free ingrown hairs. lt is also safe to perform treatment on dry itch eczema and dry psoriasis. This means less discomfort to you, and less trauma to the skin. lt is gentle enough to go over the same area several times when necessary to extract the shortest and most coarse hair, without causing skin damage or irritation. What’s not love?

So stop waxing and hop on the sugaring train. Located only 1 minute walk from Royal Oak station (Hammersmith & City and Circle Lines).
Sugaring London 64 Porchester Road London W2 6ET

 

Sugaring London is all about educating our lovely clientele. We want you to get sugared because you understand why sugaring is good for you, not because is is the latest hype.
Did you know that in some countries people get sugared even if they don’t have any hair ? You wonder why? It’s because sugaring EXFOLIATES your skin, leaving behind healthy skin with a beautiful glow.  Our sugar paste only sticks to your dead skin cells. Whereas waxing can stick to both your dead AND active skin cells. You wonder why…..keep on reading Sugaring London’s next blog!

POSTCARD FROM THE PAST

By Tom Jackson

With an introduction by Mark Haddon

Past Postcard, Bal Polski, Tom Jackson book, holiday, funny book

In Postcard From The Past, Tom Jackson has gathered a collection of the funniest, weirdest and most moving real messages from the backs of old postcards.

 

Praise for Postcard from the Past

‘Resurrecting these postcards, relics of forgotten times and forgotten holidays, was the simplest and most brilliant idea. Tom Jackson combines the images with just a few of the words scribbled on the back, and his eye for the choice sentence, the perfect phrase, is miraculous. Thanks to his assiduous, obsessive work as collector and curator, each one of these postcards becomes a poem, a short story, an elegy for lost England, a work of art’ Jonathan Coe

‘Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, this is a beautiful collection of tiny windows into the story of other people’s lives.’ Joanna Cannon

‘Sublimely funny’ Jason Hazeley, author of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups

‘Postcard from the Past contains not just 150 very short stories, each one of which bears comparison with the work of Alan Bennett, Stevie Smith and Marcel Proust, but also lovely, picturesque views of coves, chines, promenades, escarpments and the Museum and Art Gallery, Doncaster. You will wish you were there’ Andy Miller, author of The Year of Reading Dangerously

‘Somehow both poignant and deeply creepy’ Samira Ahmed

‘One of Twitter’s most nourishing concepts – each one arriving like a bonsai Alan Bennett play’ Danny Baker

‘Beautiful. Inspiring. Educational. Hilarious’ Emma Freud

‘One of the saddest and funniest picture books you’re ever likely to read’ Owen Hatherley,

‘Hilarious, haunting, silly, poetic and profound’ Danny Wallace

The necessary survival text for post-Brexit Britain’ Andrew Male

 

‘Brilliant and hilarious’    Jeremy Dyson, The League of Gentlemen

Into the sunshine,
Full of the light,
Leaping and flashing
From ‘morn till night!

The Fountain
James Russell Lowell

In her paintings Olga Pelipas seeks to develop a theme of female beauty and harmony of nature and as a symbol of the holy mystery of life. She works in the technique of acrylic and oil paintings with different textures.

 

Urodziłam się na Krymie w 1988…

Od dzieciństwa marzyłam, by zostać w przyszłości malarką lub projektantką. Gdy byłam dzieckiem moja mama często zabierała mnie na wystawy do różnych muzeów i galerii. Już wtedy zachwycałam się malarstwem. Rodzice wspierali moje zainteresowania sztuką i zapisali mnie do szkoły plastycznej. Potem studiowałam Kolegium Artystycznym na Krymie

Dalszą edukacje artystyczną kontynuowałam na ASP w Charkowie. Studiowałam na Wydziale Grafiki(Ilustracja książkowa) i na Wydziale Malarstwa Muralowego.

Trudno określić w  jakim stylu maluję. Inspiruje mnie sztuka secesyjna.

W swojej twórczości próbuję rozwijać temat piękna i harmonii kobiety. żeńska postać występuje jako alegoria natury.  Szczególnie jest mi bliski antyczny obraz bogiń, opiekujących się różnymi elementami przyrody.

Ciągle eksperymentuję z różnymi sposobami malarstwa. Zwykle maluje farbami akrylowymi, a wykorzystanie różnych lakierów pomaga mi osiągnąć efekt laserunku.

W swoich pracach łącze naturalistyczne postacie kobiet z abstrakcyjnym tłem. Nie boję się użyć grubej warstwy faktur z prawie rzeźbionych elementów za pomocą różnych past strukturalnych.

Praca odbywa się dość spontanicznie. Zaczynam pracować na płótnie, tylko staram się od razu sobie wyobrazić, w jakiej kolorystyce będzie praca. Proces można porównać z mozaiką, szczegóły fabuły buduję według złożonego schematu rzetelnie dobierając kolory.

Olga Pelipas(1988)

I was born in the Crimea in 1988…

Since my childhood I’ve dreamed  to become an artist or designer. When I was a child, my mother often took me to exhibitions in museums and galleries. Even then I admired art and painting. My parents supported my interest in art and sent me to art school. Further art education I continued in the Kharkov State Academy of Design and Arts at the Department of Graphics and the Department of Monumental Painting. It’s hard for me to determine in which style I’m painting. The art of the Secession inspires me.

In my work I try to develop the theme of beauty and harmony of a woman. A female figure appears as an allegory of nature. I’m close to the image of ancient goddesses who are responsible for the various elements of nature.

In my paintings I combine naturalistic figures of women with decorative background. I create different textures and effects using various structural pastes. Work on the picture is quite unpredictable. I start painting right on the canvas, just at once I try to imagine in what color the picture will be. the process can be compared to mosaic section- details I build on a complex scheme, carefully selecting colors.

I’m always experimenting with different ways of painting. I usually paint with acrylic paints and the use of different varnishes helps me to achieve a glazed surface.

Olga Pelipas

Born in Crimea (Ukraine) in 1988. She graduated from Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts (former Kharkiv Institute of Industrial Arts) in 2013- chair of Mural Painting,2011- chair of Book Illustrations.
