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
JesΓΊs 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: Christmas Shopping Finale

I can't go on anymore with days of shopping. This is a cry out for HELP!...LOL
Everyday there are more bits to buy, it seems like it's never going to
end!  Tomorrow, I'll collect my vegetables and some fruit - oh yes not forgetting  my Jamaican fruit cake, then that will be it! So no more  snack grocery shopping! 
Christmas is coming and I'll just wait.

This Week: Christmas Shopping day #1

Day 1 shopping for Christmas has kicked off. πŸ› I only have to stroll a couple of
minutes from my house to find the must-have decorations, clothes and gifts  for this season. The focus is so much on whatever you want rather than need,  so I must be careful not to immerse myself in the junk shopping, well at  least that's the plan anyway.

So in order to be good whilst shopping I have not participated in any group shopping like it's a sport activity or shopping with anyone with compulsive shopping disorders.  I have stayed away from those elves in retail, who try to get you to try perfumes  or clothes. Thanks but no thank you...  I have this shopping strategy in the bag! πŸ›’

This Week - Networking with designer labels

Networking with designer labels...?
Helloooo my Coco Lovelies. This week I was invited to a networking event  at the House of Fraser City, a popular department store in London.  Where Will Excell and LMA hooked me up with free makeovers and 10% - 30%  discounts on all items in the store.
There was a DJ in the house (literally) and if that was not enough to wow me,  they gave me a fantastic massive House of Fraser goody bag stuffed with all  kinds of top notch beauty products including Urban Decay, Lancome, Laura  Mercier, Benefit and my now favourite parfume Flower Bomb by Viktor Rolf . 
The best bunch of freebies that I have had in a while.  It didn't end there, there were waiters topping up my glass with cocktails and  Presseco; and we know that alchohol + department store = splurge 😧.  
So as much as I wanted to hang around 'til 9pm for their Mulberry bag prize draw that I traded my business card in for - I had to leave before I became a retail therapy  patient. Here are a f…
