I was selected to attend an event at the London Frame Studio
organised by Total Greek yoghurt and of course I dragged my
American guest along with me to share the experience.
We were happy/nervous pupils being taught how to Rumba, Salsa
and Tango by the pros - Dee Thresher celebrity fitness expert and
Jesús Reyes Ortiz Jr dance instructor from the US.

 O' yes, it was a PROPER work out whilst trying to not look like the odd ones out
...hard work! However, it was fun and very friendly, which helped us shake off
any embarrassment or pressure.

The class was rounded off nicely with a generous spread of tasty food,
refreshments and other great stuff courtesy of Total Greek yoghurt.
If you don't like the gym, this could be an alternative keep fit method for you.

Now I have the hunger for more Rumba dancing so 'Strictly Come' or 'Dancing with' -
here these happy feet come!

More Fun on the Floor

This time it was fun on the 6th floor, where I ate lunch at the London Ken…


THIS WEEK was a time to reflect on the past year.
Don't be scared to carve out your dreams in year 2012.

Not only has a new year quickly rared its head again, but
it's also a leap year! So one extra day for us in Feb.

A Special Year for Women

A leap year also means women propose to
their boyfriend instead of their boyfriend taking that leap...
not sure how the folk law works out in a gay relationship.

5 Marriage Proposal Ideas...
1. Create a photo montage of you both, show it to the boyfriend
and then pop the question.

2.  If you're gutsy and don't mind an audience...organise popping
the question at a cinema during the trailer or after the credits in
front of others...pop corny but effective for some people.

3. Get a large heart shape cookie with the words
"will you marry me?". Sweet.

4.Get some body paint and paint the words on your body.
Private and sensual.

5.Return to the scene of your first date, and say those immortal
words. Classic

Any how...fresh year 2012 has s…


I have indulged without an apology and I hope you have too.
Told you I would bake a Christmas cake and I did.

I call this the 'Very Merry Cake' and if you had a taste,
you would know exactly what I mean.
It was my first attempt at this alcohol
fruit cake and it taste great.


Glam Glam!

2012 is upon us and celebrations are in order so we need
to get our swag together.

YES, this time next week, a lot of us will be chilling and
soaking up the festivities with family. So I can't stop
chatting about yep...Christmas.

Next week is the final week to get all your
Christmas shopping. So I have spoilt you with some
brilliant ideas. Christmas crackers: You Fill!

TUG, stretch, burst, rip your Christmas cracker open and you know what you’ll get, a paper party hat and if you're fortunate enough, you may get a sewing kit. Booohh! But you could do one better this year by filling your own crackers for your dinner guests. That’s why I like the make your own crackers kits.

Then you would have to shop for the ideal filler (sample size perfumes/aftershave, make up, jewellery, lottery ticket and a funny joke) that will fit inside the
cracker. If you fancy larger size crackers , you can find
them on Amazon.
Crowned the best turkey

When it comes to eating chicken, duck, pheasant or TURKEY,
I only eat the meaty parts like the breast portions and not the
legs. If you are li…


I officially became a chosen parent blogger for one of
the largest parent websites in the UK.
Sooo chuffed to be a member of the Mums net bloggers
network, growing day by day. Yeah!

This time last year there were huge snow flakes falling,
thick blankets of snow and mayhem, we in the UK could not
work through the snow and everything was brought to a halt!

Now it's not snowing, there's no excuse to not work! Still its
cold so it's time to reach for the winter warmers.


Hi, whether you're taking a SNEAKY peek on
a lunch break or browsing at your leisure.


FOR music loving people, I mean those of you who want to listen to music in style and great sound quality.

The Shamballa bracelets are a hit and will still
be a hit this Christmas.

In short, Shamballa is spiritual and represents
a Buddhist physical place that can only be
reached by people with good karma. So the
bracelets are now blinged out and made to look
trendy. They are unisex and come in many colours
from gun metal to pink swarovski or czech crystals.

The prices range from £9 - £120 depending on
the quality of the crystals.


I made my very own hair gel by boiling half a cup of
whole linseeds (flaxseed) for 5mins on high heat,
left it to cool and strained it into an empty tub.

Also added a table spoon olive oil and
coconut oil...good to go! No harmful chems
or alcohol and cost under £3.00.
So many v…
