The only mat you need is a Liforme mat. It is a mat I have wanted for a very long time after seeing several friends using them in body balance classes over the last couple of years. This is not an ad I bought this mat myself direct from Liforme.
I also loved that it came with a bag lol I had my previous mat for about 10 years and it had no grip and I kept slipping. This caused great amusement for the rest of the class. ￼
I got the Liforme mat for my birthday and I loved using it. I ordered about a month before so I had to wait but it was well and truely worth the wait. It was perfect in every way. It has a great grip and I was’nt doing the splits every few seconds!!!!!!
My Liforme Mat
I used the Liforme mat on Thursday 14th November for the 1st time and used the alignment the whole time and felt my balance was better as I was more aligned. The mat was really comfortable to lay on too which is so important when doing yoga, Pilates and body balance. This mat has already made a huge difference to me as I am hyper flexible and this will allow me not to over extend and prevent myself from getting injuries. The only thing I wish was I had got this mat sooner.
I chose the grey mat as it is a great colour and it looks really smart. It does come in a variety of different colours including blue,purple ,green and pink so there is a colour for everyone. You could also get a travel mat that is lighter and cheaper but still offers the same alignment feature as the the Liforme mat.
Finally I really hope you have enjoyed reading this review of this amazing mat. If you would like to read the rest of my reviews please click on the link below.

Inecto naturals coconut divine shine hair oil had got raving reviews. I contacted Inecto and asked them if they could send me a sample. They promptly replied to my email and asked me to send my address.
I then had a further response to say they had dispatched the product. I was so impressed with how quickly they responded to my message. It arrived very quickly and it was even better it was a 100ml bottle of Coconut divine shine oil which was amazing.
I applied this wonderful magic oil when wet and then after styling. It has made my hair feel so smooth and shiny and it feels in incredible condition. My hair was previously a little dry and this product has made a huge difference. I have already recommended this product to all my friends.
I have been on two MSC Cruises and here are my top tips when cruising
Download the MSC for me app before you travel.
Make sure you check the MSC daily programme.
Before your cruise check out the theme nights during your cruise.
If you have cruised with other cruise lines make sure you status match with MSC voyagers club.
If your in the MSC voyager club make sure you take advantage of all your perks.
Prebook internet,drinks packages or any extras before you go as you will save the 15% service charge if you booked onboard.
You can use chat on MSC for me to message other family members for free and this does not require an internet package.
Buy a Mia Tui Sue Shopper great bag to take towels to pool area or trips ashore. Do check out their other bags for example Falmouth Beach bag, Isobel https://miatui.com
Buy a MSC for Me Wristband they are great for using when using slides or getting drinks and getting in your cabin.
When you are using the spa make sure you take your cruise card as you need to hand it in at reception. I made the mistake of leaving it in cabin. I therefore had to walk all the way back to cabin to collect it.
Remember your cruise card when getting off the ship.
Make sure you take your daily programme ashore as it has all emergency information.
Use the MSC shuttle buses as it will save you time and prevent you getting lost.
Check the departure time at each port to prevent you missing the ship.
Don’t forget to register your credit card at one of the activation points.
Take Sellotape to tape labels on suitcases we always put two on 1 on both handles just incase one label falls off.
Finally have a wonderful cruise and enjoy all the yummy food,drink and ports.
I hope you find this useful.

MSC Bellissima was the ship we sailed on in May. I travelled from Newark to London Kings Cross via LNER and then Thameslink from London Kings Cross St Pancreas direct to Gatwick Airport.
Our 1st little adventure started when they tried to land at Genoa and unfortunately it was impossible due to high winds so we had to land at Milan Airport. The Airline arranged a coach from Milan Airport to Genoa port and we made it in time thank goodness. It was little stressful but we survived this little hiccup.
We arrived at Genoa cruise terminal to see the beautiful Bellissima and we think we were the last group to embark. Once onboard we made our way to our gorgeous cabin on deck 10. My Mum and I were lucky to get an upgrade from MSC, thank you very much. We booked an outside fantastica cabin and received a balcony fantastica
We then went to get some yummy pizza and a drink which was really needed as we were both starving. After some much needed food we went to the muster drill as it is such a important event. On MSC they had a daily programme as well as on the app which tells you everything that is going on. There is some fantastic activities that are happening each day so do check when you receive this the night before.
After Muster drill we went back to the cabin and our luggage had arrived so we started unpacking. I always worry about my luggage so very relieved when I see our suitcases sitting outside my door. My holiday can finally start.
This is a photo of our fantastica balcony cabin on the MSC Bellissima . Our cabin was on deck 10 and was 10191
This Daily Programme is delivered each evening and left on your bed. It is also available on the MSC app I would highly recommend you download the app before you go.
We were very lucky to get a free premium drinks package which was fantastic and there was amazing choice of different drinks included. They will scan either your cruise card or wristband. You do have to pay for the wristband which was 5 euros
Our Cruise on MSC Bellissima
We had an amazing cruise and the staff were all very welcoming and made sure everything was perfect. The staff are extremely hard working and seemed to remember you which we thought was incredible considering there is 5,000 passengers. We were very lucky to have a table for 2 in the dining room which is rare when we cruised with other cruise lines. We never requested a table for 2 so we were extremely lucky. Our restaurant was the lighthouse restaurant which is situated at the aft which is the back of the ship. We loved going to the daytime activities and won a few prizes which was a bonus. The entertainment staff were very enthusiastic and made their games very enjoyable.

My little Olly’s 1st adventure holiday to London. I went to London with my Mum,Dad and my Cavalier King Charles dog called Olly. My brother David lives in the big city and travelled with us on this trip. I have visited London a lot either on my own or with friends and family. This was a special trip as it was Olly’s 1st time to London so we made a few adaptions as we did not want to overwhelm him with the crowds.
We travelled down by car as we had to take stuff for my brother and we felt it would be easier with Olly. It also saved us a lot of money on train fares for 4 of us. LNER does allow dogs free of charge.
Our holiday started in West Hampstead and had a excellent meal at the Alliance pub. They were very welcoming and allowed us inside and had a very yummy fish and chips. I would highly recommend this pub if you are in the area.
We were a little concerned how Olly would cope with the busy traffic and cars as he sometimes barks at traffic. He actually was better behaved than at home so I think he prefers life in London.
When you have a dog you want to go to places that welcome them as much as you can. I found quite a few places that were very welcoming for dogs. We only visited 3 places that are mentioned in this review.
We went to Hyde park via london bus as it nicer and you see more of London and Olly got lots of attention from other passengers. Normally you don’t talk to other people in London but when you have a dog it’s so different.
On our 2nd day I was very keen to take Olly to Hyde Park as it looked a perfect place for walking and seen so many photos on Instagram of other cavaliers . It was ideal and a met a lovely mother and daughter who made a lovely fuss over Olly.
We visited the Lido at Hyde Park for a quick coffee and they only allowed dogs outside. The coffee was excellent and they had bowls of water for dogs aswell.
While enjoying our coffee at Lido. My brother looked for a pub for our lunch and found the Swan pub opposite Hyde Park on Bayswater Road. We had Roast Dinners and Beefburgers which were excellent. We were able to eat inside which was a bonus.
I really hope you enjoyed reading this blog of our holiday and found it useful. If you would like to read my other blogs here is the link
While on Facebook I saw an advertisement for the company k9 connectables. I had never heard of this company so researched the company and thought wow this is a amazing invention. I knew straightaway that this would be perfect for my dog Olly who is a Cavalier King Charles. Olly is a very greedy dog and loves his food. I knew this would be the answer to our problems. It would allow me and my family a chance to eat our food without our little friend coming to try and pinch our food lol.
K9 connectables are a company based in Dublin in Ireland. They make toys and biscuits for dogs where you connect different parts to make different shapes and put treats inside. I contacted them to see if they would be interested in featuring their products on my blog. K9 connectables came back to my Facebook message very quickly and said they would be interested in sending some products in exchange for a honest review. They also asked me a few questions about what breed and what size Olly was. I replied via facebook and said his breed but was unsure the size he would require as he still has small treats and toys.
I was absolutely thrilled when my k9 connectables package arrived in the post. They sent two sizes the mini and medium packs which was so generous of them . They also sent 3 packets of dogs biscuits that are to be used with the toys which was a real bonus.
The customer service of K9 connectables was fantastic. They gave Olly the opportunity to try their wonderful products. Olly was so excited when they arrived so got an afternoon treat to test the k9 toy. Olly loves his k9 toys and keeps him busy while we eat. The products are great quality. We took these toys away with us on holiday as they don’t take up much space. I have been recommending these toys to all my friends and family.
Photos of Olly and his K9 toys
Here is some photos of Olly using his fantastic new toys. I love these photos.
Finally I am sure you are thinking I need these toys for my dog or dogs. Here is the link so that you will be able to purchase these amazing dog toys https://k9connectables.com I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog . Thank you for finding this blog. If you would like to ask me any questions please get in touch.

Firstly I am always using bottles for gym and dance classes or grabbing takeaway coffees. I saw an advertisement for Hydro flask and it looked like just the perfect bottle for both purposes.
I contacted Hydro Flask to see if they would be interested in me reviewing their product in exchange for a free bottle. Abbie Baynes sent me a lovely email enquiring which bottle I would be interested in.
Different types of Lids
I researched all the different bottles and chose the hydro flask 21 ozs standard mouth as this would be ideal for coffees and cold drinks. After I had used the flex top for a few weeks and found it was perfect for hot drinks. Although I found it inconvenient for dance classes as I had to keep it loose and was concerned I may knock it over. Many of my gym friends know how clumsy I can be lol. I contacted Abbie Baynes and explained the situation and she immediately sent me the insulated sports top which was brilliant when exercising and much easier. I use this bottle all the time now as it is keeps drinks hot or cold.
Hydro flask offer excellent customer service and their products have been very impressive. I have been recommending to all my friends to try these products. The products came very quickly my mail. When using the hydro flask for hot drinks they will stay hot for an amazing 12 hours. Therefore this allowed me to enjoy my drink slowly and not have to rush drinking it. I am looking forward to using this bottle lots over the winter period. I may try taking soup for my lunch to have as alternative to sandwiches. The Hydro bottle is ideal for a number of different purposes for instance days outs, gym, work and my all time favourite hobby dance classes.
In conclusion If you thinking of buying a Hydro Flask get one you won’t regret it. There is a large choice of different bottles and sizes and food flasks. If you have any questions please send a comment.
Radisson Blu at East Midlands Airport Hotel was the hotel my mum and I stayed at during our trip in September this year.Our stay was from 1st -2nd September as we had an early morning flight the following day.
We had booked direct via Radisson Blu for the Park, Dream and Fly package which was perfect for us. We arrived and parked our car and then checked in. The shuttle bus organised by the hotel was booked for 4.45am the next day and the bus left early and we were at the airport in less than 5 minutes. In the morning there was an excellent selection of tea and coffees, cereal bars free of charge which were very much appreciated.
Our room facilities were excellent and very much appreciated they provided free tea and coffee facilities as well as bottled water. If you had forgotten any items you could request items via their website which came very quickly. The WiFi was very good. The beds were incredibly comfy and we both slept very well. The reception arranged a wake-up call which was on time. Please watch my video below to see our room.
I would highly recommend Radisson Blu if you are travelling from East Midlands Airport. If you travelling back to the hotel by shuttle bus the telephone is just after security.
