The scene was set at the IPC Media centre in London Bridge where big names such Country Life, Marie Claire and In Style magazines host their publishing.
Ecco are renown as an outdoorsy brand with high quality leather, outstanding craftsmanship and upmarket clientèle, originating in Denmark and recognised globally. The plan for the day was to embrace their clean living persona by offering journalists an escape from the office where they could reacquaint themselves with some of Ecco's new pieces on the market, whilst indulging in some freshly made, invigorating smoothies by the outstanding team @ We Grill, followed by a holistic session, where I invited the journalists to sample a 15 minute treatment of either reflexology, reiki or Indian head massage, leaving them feeling renewed and nurtured before having to plough on back in the office.
The smoothies offered by We Grill were simply delicious. Fresh ingredients, all of our favourite natural powdered super foods and a unique combination of flavours. They are on the cusp of opening a restaurant in Leadenhall Market offering lots of fabulous and yummy healthy lunch options. Stay tuned for their grand opening!
I must say I actually thoroughly enjoyed the day. I was able to meet some really great people, all on the path to freedom by striving for the success of their own ventures and I got to promote Healed Soles in doing so. Amongst those people was a freelance writer named Lili who stood out from the crowd both in her unique style and wonderful demeanour. She is the creator and one of the writers of lifestyle blog Beauty and the Snob, a really brilliantly written and varied blogazine covering destinations, restaurants, clothing, beauty treatments and more. After a 15 minute Indian head massage she very sweetly complimented both my technique and touch and went on to create this lovely write up about our encounter here (scroll half way down the page to see my feature). Awesome stuff, thanks so much Beauty!
I'm certainly looking forward to further collaborations in the future.
