In every Soho House and Cowshed spa you'll find rows of colourful bottles waiting to deliver a refreshing and healthy hit of cold pressed juice. This is House Press - another part of the Soho House family, just like Cowshed, and equally dedicated to making you feel good on the inside and - as it turns out - on the outside too. Here Artur Zielinski, head of House Press, explains which cold pressed juices contain the ultimate beauty-boosting ingredients.

Our beautiful new spa at The Ned features all the familiar Cowshed touches you’d expect, from the famously comfy mani/pedi chairs to restful treatment rooms, plus a few grand flourishes as befits the building’s grand Edwardian heritage (think hand-painted wallpaper, a spectacular hammam and the fanciest changing rooms we've ever seen). Spa General Manager Svet took us on a tour and shared some of her favourite things about this very special Cowshed.
‘I worked for Orient Express hotels in Sydney where I worked my way up from reception through to operations manager, spa manager, so I have a background in five star hotels. We were the leading spa in Sydney for three years and then from Sydney I came over to England because my husband’s British. I didn’t go straight into spas, I started working with companies in the private sector doing operational roles and then I moved over to Cowshed Primrose Hill where I opened up the spa and that was my first connection with Soho House. I was there for three years and Primrose is very successful - it was the largest site in London, it was considered the flagship in terms of the standalones.
Then from Primrose I moved over to The Ned. I’ve been here since its inception – I joined at the end of December and was here for the pre opening and it’s been an amazing opportunity. Even though I’ve run big companies before this is challenging being in charge of three floors, but it’s exciting, I’ve got a great team and we’re doing really well.

If there's one blog we never fail to check, it's The Frugality. The fashion, beauty and increasingly interiors-focussed site is the brainchild of freelance stylist Alex Stedman, who is known for her amazing ability to make savvy high street finds look like high fashion. As we're celebrating our famous moods this month, we sent Alex and her boyfriend to try our signature Moody Massage...
'You'd think post-holiday, we'd be all blissed out without the need for a relaxing massage. In fact the opposite was true - a late night budget airline back from Spain at 1am and straight back into a week of stressful work and appointments actually left us in need of some spa time. So we jumped at the chance to try the 'Moody Massage' at the Cowshed Selfridges spa, which was also a new spot to try.
