Five to Inspire
Written by Polly Jacobs and others
Hello Hello Hello,
Five to inspire from myself and Poppy this week, enjoy!
GO: Here’s a cool daytime activity for your Saturday afternoon. Blue Paradox is an immersive exhibition experience on the ocean plastic crisis, and how you can make a difference, just by attending. Running until Monday 27th at Exhibition London, Ariel Way, and tickets are absolutely free! Perfect for that last weekend before payday 😃
READ: Voice of a generation? Who also happens to be Irish? Sign me up! (Daniel may have written this one). Following the roaring success for her last novel Normal People, international bestselling author Sally Rooney is back with Beautiful World, Where Are You. Following the lives and relationships of Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon in Dublin, the book is receiving rave reviews and is not to be missed. Believe the hype!
WALK: Physical activity can hugely enhance our mental awareness, energy and positive mentality, physical activity is essential. As we head into October, the London parks are becoming ever more autumnal. Just look at the photos we found on Instagram this week! Walking and running are great ways to distract yourself from everyday stresses, get some fresh air and appreciate the parks. Our top pick: Regents Park is looking absolute idyllic for an Autumn stroll!
ART: Van Gogh Alive, at Kensington Gardens, is closing very soon so consider this a final call. The exhibition has been in 65 cities across the world and has been visited by seven million people. Van Gogh Alive aims to reveal the more sensationalist aspects of Gogh’s life portrayed through the changing details of his most famous paintings creative immersive rooms such as the Sunflower Room, something you may well have seen on Instagram.
WATCH: In these often changing and uncertain times, it’s important to cherish the things we take comfort in. And that’s why it’s important we remind you – The Great British Bake Off is back! Everyone’s favourite dollop of wholesome television is back every Tuesday 8pm on Channel 4 and looks set to be as cosy and calming a watch as ever. Perfect watching over a busy days work. If you won’t do it for me, do it for Maggie.
Enjoy the rest of your week, team 😃
