UJ Health Supplement

Here at UJ, we believe in the detox pre-Christmas rather than January (prevention you see). If you're on our page, the below should offer some feel feel good inspiration. We've also included a last minute heads up to WineChap's Malbec Night taking place tomorrow night to balance it out; after all it's no fun being good all the time!

adidas BOOST™ Launch NYC

Here at UJ, we like to think that we’re a bit sporty (chic). We’re always up for trying the latest fitness craze, interested in a luxe gym kit, and love a new trainer. So when we were invited to the launch of BOOST™ in NYC with adidas – even though we knew nothing about the product to be unveiled – anything billed as a game changer has our immediate attention.

British 10K powered by Nike+

I’ve never been a runner. I did a bit of track and field (3rd runner, just don’t drop the baton was my motto) and they’d make me do hurdles when the hurdler didn’t show up (I have no shame), but I’ve always hated the gun, and track meets of any kind. I especially hate the track. And I’m not big on group things either.

UJ Health Supplement

September always makes us want to start buying satchels and patent pumps in a back-to-school style, and this year we feel like getting virtuous too: organising our wardrobes, getting our workout routine in gear, and stocking the fridge with smoothies. UJ presents a guide to our favourite health and beauty treats for A/W11.

Asian Persuasion

Whilst we lament the lack of decent spas in town and wish we were enjoying a frill-free massage on the beach, a couple of new oriental spas have crept in promising to cure London’s ills with Chinese medicine therapies and Thai treatments. Time to align your ying and yang.

The Experientialist: Una Brennan Facial

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a really good facial. And I judge ‘good’, perhaps rather uniquely (and swayed by my time in Asia where poking and prodding is par for the course), by the amount of extractions happening. I can wash my face myself – what I can’t do is put a spotlight to my pores and give my skin a serious clean.

Treadmill Timeshare

Welcome to 2011, a world of ever-increasing gas prices, tax hikes, rent booms and previously unspecified charges, as well as gyms proving the brawn’s not quite caught up with the brain on the 2.5% maths with their ‘VAT inflated’ prices. Luckily the New Year also promises fresh options that won’t tie you into contracts so long you’ll still be pounding the treadmill on your zimmerframe.
