I think we can all agree that the weekend was officially the start of spring. With temperatures hitting 18°C, London was officially the place to be on the weekend. As I pulled out my favourite summer dress from the back of my wardrobe however, I realised how complacent I’d become with my Get Fit for Summer plan, and got slightly terrified at the thought of wearing crop tops and tiny shorts. You can therefore imagine my excitement when I heard about Invest in You, my well-timed summer saviour.
Their inaugural event on Sunday, 23rd March 2014 is about helping you reach your full potential and to be the best version of you that you possibly can be through learning more about health, fitness, fashion and all of the elements that affect your wellbeing on a daily basis.
With 20 exhibitors, 6 speakers and 5 fitness demos, I love that the event has something for everyone! Being an avid foodie, I am excited to see Angela Steel speak on The Seven Nutrition Habits of Highly Effective People. Hopefully that’ll help me stay away from the ever so tempting occasional Chinese takeaway, which isn’t doing any favours on my waistline.
Other speakers include Kimberly Davis, Season 5 finalist of The Apprentice; Raewyn Bates, Head of Wellbeing for Barclays Investment bank and representatives from Saladmaster, discussing The Truth Behind your Diet. My inner girly girl is also looking forward to their stylist panel and their final speaker Assumpta Ozua, a young Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant who will discuss her successful journey and hopefully give us some tips on how to make our skin glow for the summer.
For gym-phobes like me, their 6 fitness demos will help you find the best way to stay fit and fabulous in a fun way. Demos will be led by Yoga with Kathy Lewis, Urban Krav Maga, Ford Fitness Boxing, Personal Trainingwith Keith Joice and African Dance with Melissa Carby.
There will also be a raffle and the following prizes will be up for grabs: £50 Sweaty Betty Voucher; Cocktail Masterclass for you and 2 friends at Dirty Martini; 1 hour personal shopping experience; 30 minute consultation and 1 hour personal training session; 1 years coffee supply; Mary Kay Beauty Hamper; 6 set Urban Krav Maga DVD; Hello Fresh 3 meal box worth £39; 2 one month memberships to Ford Fitness …and many more!
As if the above isn’t enough, there will be free coffee samples by Cru Kafe, free makeovers and beauty consultations with Remedy Hair and Beauty and skinny cocktail demos with Dirty Martini. If all of the above doesn’t convince you, for £7 per ticket, the event is a steal!
