If you’re a long-term reader of #LoveLondon, you’ll know that one of the annual events I try never to miss is the London Lifestyle Awards. Established in 2010 by London lover Jason Gale, they celebrate the best businesses, services and experiences in London, so of course, we’re big fans. It’s honestly fantastic to see a room full of people nominated by their customers for doing what they do brilliantly…and the winners are always so excited it makes my day.
If you follow me on Twitter you’ll have seen that last Thursday, London’s great and good were invited to the luxurious Cuckoo Club, where the shortlisted nominees were announced, and a fair few Givinity cocktails were consumed (LUSH, by the way).
It was also our opportunity to get our hands on this years LLA coffee table Book – which is a fantastic resource for what to do and where to go in London this year. Flicking through, I found myself nodding in agreement to all the featured venues and businesses – so if you can get your hands on one, treat it as your personal bible.
They’re distributed around London so keep your eyes peeled – well worth grabbing!
