Can't wait to watch The Great British Bake Off tonight. Really getting into it even after only a couple of weeks! I must say though each time I watch it I start thinking I'm capable of anything and can bake to meet the highest standards of Mary Berry! With all the talk about leaving BBC and going to Channel 4, lets hope she stays around long enough with Paul Hollywood or it could all collapse in the middle and become a soggy mess!
Yesterday I'm happy to report the fact that I attended another class at the gym. Over the years I've gone from agile, limber and fairly flexible to an older, stiffer and unpliable specimen, unhappy with the fact of old age and less exercise have bought me to this point, that and the fact of the little amount of exercise I do is only using similar muscle groups.
So when I saw this class advertised on FB I took the plunge and booked it, this stretch class was aimed at the mature person! I was the youngest in the class - granted - but can honestly recommend this to everyone. Forty five minutes of various stretches incorporating all of the body, it almost felt like a massage, maybe that was the therapeutic music playing softly in the background, but I felt fantastically calm when I left. This I would recommend for ladies of my age, because as the old saying states "Use it, don't loose it"!
I'm pretty sure all local Leisure/Activity centres would do a similar class, so It may be worth checking yours out if you are interested.
Without anymore talk of keeping fit, I don't want to drain you all, here's my outfit choice of the day. Struggling with the photos as my 'David Bailey' has decided to desert me for Ibiza!
I'm wearing a black crepe jumpsuit that is ages old, but still in fashion. Being more suited for holiday wear, and with our weather in the UK being the same as many hotter climates in the world - I opted to wear it.
It has very wide legs which are so flattering, a tie belt came with this, however I've decided to pull this black & gold look together with this stunning belt. It's a large band of elastic with a gorgeous gold clasp on each end making it a real stand-outish belt.
The camisole straps on top of the fluted layer gives a lovely finish to the top. This gold ball necklace, ( a pressie from my sister-in-law) is the perfect accessory, it sits just in the right place - making it a real statement piece too.
A simple black bangle was the only other piece I wanted for this look.
Since blogging and seeing other blogs I trying very hard to embrace the pop of colour. Think I've nailed this with the pop from the yellow clutch bag -
I really hope so!
I'm having to think outside the box, as I would normally have opted for a black one! Haha.
Pop over to have a look at these lovely blogs, Andrea from Livingoncloudandreanine, and Allison at Sydneyfashionhunter
So until tomorrow Remember:
