Hurrah the sun is shining and it’s 21 degrees in my corner of Essex, this means summer is finally on its way.
Cement mixing, babies, Savage Beauty and more Insanity classes are all high on the agenda for this weeks gossip.
We’ll I’ve found a new found talent and fall back career if it’s ever needed! Cement mixing – random I know, but we had to lay a base for a new shed in our garden and I was chief cement mixer. It was also great for toning the arms – win win.
There’s been lots of exciting baby updates within my friendship group this week, not one but two gorgeous little boys have been born within a couple of days of each other. Both babies and mummies are doing well and I can’t wait for cuddles.
I urge you to go and see the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A, it’s quite simply breath taking. I’ve always had a fascination with Alexander McQueen, the designs he produced were completely different from anything that had been seen before and he wasn’t afraid to push the boundaries.
I don’t want to give too much away about the exhibition but one of the quotes on the wall I really loved was ‘You’ve got to know the rules to break them’ – Alexander McQueen.
I mentioned last week that I’m off to Miami soon, so I’ve been working hard on my fitness and diet in a bid to tone up and slim down in time for the beach. I’m sure you’ve heard about Insanity work outs? If not, it’s a high intensity class which focuses on all parts of the body and it’s a great way to burn calories. I’ve been going twice a week for the last few months and i’m starting to actually see a difference.
Along with Insanity classes I’ve been hitting the gym using the NTC app using the targeted work outs to focus on my abs and arms. It’s a lot like having a personal trainer in your ear but the biggest bonus is – it’s free!
Finally, #notmycat Nigel has been round again, he likes to pop in a make sure we’re ok!
