to Apr 7

Connect 4 Dating

Speed dating is so boring… And awkward…. And monotonous. Anyway, you get the picture. 

How it works:

One of London's most popular dating events is back in Shoreditch! 

Let's be honest, it's probably been about 20 years since you've played Connect 4. Go back to your childhood days and play Connect 4 with cool, like-minded people. It’s a great way to break the ice and bring out your competitive spirit. We’ll also have quirky “Connect 4” questions on the table to help you… Ummmm… Connect. So, be bold and take the plunge with tickets from just £15 each or £26 if you come as a duo! 

Smudged Lipstick was recently named "Events Brand of the Year" at the UK Dating Awards 2017 and is the anti-dating company event for people who hate dating events!

DIRTY SCRABBLE DATING

Tickets have nearly sold out! Wipe those tears though – add yourself to the waiting list at the bottom of the page as we will have cancellations and release more!

Regular, run-of-the-mill speed dating events in London are so boring and monotonous and “singles” cocktail parties are…. Well… A little bit wanky. Share an experience that’s a little bit different making it so much easier to break the ice.

How it works:

This has now become one of one of London’s number one dating events. It’s Scrabble crossed with speed dating …. But you’re only allowed to use rude words, so be creative! Laugh your head off as you work your way around the room meeting cool people who have just as big a dirty mind as you do. Places are always limited (seriously – they actually are) so don’t miss out!

We’re not going to promise you that you’re going to meet “the one” but we can guarantee you’ll have a great time meeting new people.

Tickets will sell fast so get in quick!

How to overcome insomnia and other sleep problems?

Beatrix A Schmidt is a sought after speaker on the topic of sleep. She is a reformed troubled sleeper and the creator of The Sleep Deep Method. 

Her work focuses on helping professionals to sleep better at night so that they can be rested, recharged, in charge of their time, productivity, gain a higher level or life satisfaction in their life and peace with themselves. She will walk you through the following topics:

- How sleep works and why we need it

- Common misconceptions about sleep

- The 7 areas of our life affecting our sleep

- Simple tools and exercises that will help you to sleep well at night and wake up refreshed the next morning

Insomnia and other sleep problems affect around one in every three people in the UK, that is around 22 million people in the UK alone. A staggering amount, especially since there are so many effective ways to improve sleep and wake up refreshed in the morning.

When was the last time you slept well at night and woke up refreshed ready to conquer the day? During this talk we will explore how sleep works and why we need it especially in today’s fast moving world.

Which of the 7 areas of your life is keeping you awake at night the top 3 reasons why you might be insomniac and not even realise find out simple and effective ways to get over insomnia or other sleep problems. Beatrix will help you to see the bigger picture when it comes to sleeping issues and ways you can improve your situation. This will be an informative and interactive talk addressing some of the most common misconceptions about sleep and what to do about them. You will have a chance to get to know the other attendees though interactive exercises. 

Regular poor sleep puts you at risk of serious medical conditions, including obesityheart disease and diabetes – and it shortens your life expectancy. It’s now clear that a solid night’s sleep is essential for a long and healthy life.

Even if you’re moderately sleep-deprived, you’ll have a 50 percent slower response time and a lower accuracy rate on simple tasks than someone who is under the influence of alcohol.

One study found that one sleepless night contributed to a 20-32% increase in the number of errors made by surgeons. In another study, they found that sports players, especially sports that require focus like cycling or shooting, made more mistakes when they didn’t sleep. Even without looking at these studies, I’m sure we’ve all experienced this feeling, where we’re not on top of our game.

A good sleep routine can change your life and has endless benefits, ranging from increased productivity to better health. In this interactive talk, you will discover practical, fun and highly effective ways to switch off and managing your ‘racing mind’. In turn this will help you rest better and sleep to success!
