It is such a beautiful day in London today! The sun is shining, it’s cold but it’s not too cold….I think its safe to say that those two weeks of good weather, also known as the Great British Summer, are on their way! February was an absolutely brilliant month. My favourite TV show returned for season six, I discovered a love for an exercise class that I usually roll my eyes at and my lunches have been transformed thanks to a Canadian food chain. Here are my February favourites.
The Good Wife
Forget about House of Cards and Games of Thrones, the only show that you should be watching is The Good Wife and it has finally returned to More 4 for season six.
The Good Wife is based around the life of a Lawyer Alicia Florrick and her turbulent marriage to the Governor of Illinois Peter Florrick, but Alicia is no Stepford wife! She used to live in the shadow of her successful husband, but she now owns a law firm and her relationship with Peter has gone from being a marriage to a business agreement.
Unlike most shows, the Good Wife will have you hooked from the first episode and you will quickly find yourself feeling like you are a part of the Lockhart Gardner legal team.
It’s hard to talk about The Good Wife without revealing too much but you can catch season six on More 4 at 9pm every Thursday, or head over to NetFlix to watch it from the beginning.
I recently did hot yoga for the first time and I must admit, not only did I underestimate the intensity, I underestimated how much I would enjoy it! The last time I did Yoga, I was on a boat in the Dominican Republic and it would have been the most boring hour of my life if it wasn’t for the fact that someone kept passing wind every time they stretched. My boyfriend and I were in fits of stifled laughter, I’m laughing now just thinking about it.
I did my first Hot Yoga session with Hot Pod and their studio was on a roof top overlooking the city. The hour long class saw me using muscles that I didn’t even know that I had and my tight hamstrings received the deep stretch that they had so desperately longed for. I left the studio feeling like I had just done a full body workout, which is not something that you usually expect from a yoga class.
I usually bring my lunch with me to work but a friend recently introduced me to Pita Pit and I’ve been there so often in the past two weeks that they now know my order before I have even placed it!
Pita Pit is a Canadian franchise that make salads and pitas on the go for vegans, vegetarians and carnivores! Choose your meat or veggie filling and then you can fill your pita or salad box with as many vegetables as you like.
The pitas are extremely popular but I always opt for a grilled chicken salad box which costs just under £6 and I fill it with spinach, roast vegetables, tomatoes, gherkins, olives, cucumbers and a few chunks of pineapple.
The thing I love the most about Pita Pit is that all of the food is fresh and free from additives which means that it has become my healthy go to place, when I haven’t made anything for lunch and it also fits in with my paleo lifestyle.
Stop whatever it is you are doing, book a Hot Yoga class, buy yourself a salad box from Pita Pit and enjoy it whilst you watch The Good Wife!
