[title maintitle="What's HOT in food and drink this summer" subtitle=""] Our brand new favourite summer trends for food and drink is here. The healthy London brunch spot we can't get enough of, the ice cream company that have made our summer and a cocktail bar you need to try! [title maintitle="" subtitle="THE HEALTHY ICE CREAM: Miiro"] [caption id="attachment_3369" align="alignnone" width="701"] Vicky with her Miiro Ice Cream[/caption] Think chocolate ice cream is a far away dream this summer which will only happen if you have a cheat meal? Think again! Life saviours Miiro Ice Cream are here to help. Their ice creams which initially look like a magnum come in three different flavours: peanut, salted caramel and hazelnut (salted caramel being my ultimate favourite!) and are made from pea protein, coconut milk, raw cacao and coconut sugar. They are low in fat, completely vegan and refined sugar free. So, a perfect option for those who avoid dairy (like me), are trying to eat healthily or avoid animal products!

With a delicious allergy friendly menu of pancakes, vegan & non vegan brunch options and protein shakes which you can eat outside or inside and that's not all. The Lodge Space offer classes from Acro Yoga to HIIT. I trialled their acro yoga class and had so much fun getting into brand new inversions and trying new skills.

[title maintitle=" London's 5 BEST fitness classes to get you in shape quick" subtitle=""] I've sweated my way round London's fitness scene to bring you my top 5 fitness classes to get you in shape quickly! Plus, they all have been rated on my fun and sweat factor scale. Enjoy! Love Vicky x   We all know that dieting two weeks before beach season won't cut it for results, so if like me you're getting started early - let's make it as fun and sweaty as possible!    [title maintitle="" subtitle="DW Fitness First - FGT BOOTCAMP"] [caption id="attachment_3090" align="alignnone" width="1500"] FGT Bootcamp - Photo credit: DW Fitness First[/caption] If you're in a rush for time but want to really feel that workout then this is the class for you. I did a morning 20 minutes FGT Bootcamp class at DW Fitness First London Cottons Club and left dripping with sweat! The class is split equally between 30 seconds of work and 30 seconds rest - and trust me, you'll want more rest! Within 20 minutes I'd battled with the battle ropes, swung and squatted with kettle bells and perfected my press ups. I love to feel worked hard during a workout and if you are the same then you need to give this one a try. With classes at many of the gym locations be sure to add this one to your morning routine - I'll see you there. Sweat factor: 5/5 Fun factor: 4/5 See the timetable for FGT here.

The classes typically last 45 minutes and are delivered as an intense HIIT style programme. There are different bases in which you, as group you take turns moving round. From burpees to kettle bells and battle ropes to...
