MONDAY MELLOWNESS…..Post my evening yoga class courtesy of @carrieonbootcamp, I was for some reason inspired to curl up cat like (again)on my fave chair. Body well limbered I was able to play with some low level contortion that has probably ruined all of Carrie’s good work! I didn’t plan on looking quite so moody but what with the thunderstorm and all I’m happy to be dictated to on this occasion…..sleep well y’all….

MONDAY’S MANTRA…. I’m not here to be political but on the bus this morning I clocked the headline of the freebie paper or should I say the cover advertisement and I put my cynicism to one side ignoring the obvious brand advertising and felt a huge sense of hope and relief. Hope that we maintain our respect for our talented sportsmen and women and our support for their efforts which only a few dare to fully commit to and have the stamina for. 

So boys hold that fire in your belly, stay strong, stay true ,ignore the scum that are not fit to call themselves fans and keep going…..you are warriors for us all…

SUNDAY STRETCH…. Thank you @scutarimatt for setting me up for a very busy domestic day….so much to do….I need a laundry fairy in my life right now! Can’t say I left all my worries at the door but the benefits will be felt for sure. Practice of any kind brings us back to a reassuring and familiar place which is very settling. I think we can find that in many different ways, exercise happens to be one of mine because it’s holistic gold dust and my soul and spirit are revived once more….happy Sunday people and good luck to our boys on the pitch who have a nations dream to realise….

FRIDAY FROCK……Oh what a joy, to wear a frock and not freeze and partake in a birthday lunch with my gal pals to celebrate one of the very best women in my life……

This frock had me swooning from the get go….maxi, v neck, empire line and swathes of lush breezy crinkle cotton fabric in a desert earthy brown tone….versatile because it rocks equally well with Nike’s or Frye boots, my kinda frock as it’s a workhorse!!

I’m really a very simple girl with simple needs….a Grecian sundress, 23 degrees outside and my sisterhood for company over lunch!

THE FUTURE IS LOVE….Playin’ again with the light and composition….really wasn’t sure where this was going as I’m supposed to be offering up some inspiration as it’s a Thursday. So taking some inspiration from my slogan tee instead it needed to feel a little retro I guess… the message is hopeful and our boys on the field are not only showing us their passion for their sport but it’s coming from a place of kindness and respect which hasn’t been seen for many a while and surely is proof that the beautiful game can be indeed beautiful if it wants to….

WHATTA MAN…..Lyric post for a Wednesday morning and a self congratulatory pat on the back for making it to mid week, the weekend is in sight for us all….

Tonight I’m pulling out an old fave, actually an En Vogue mix which is over six minutes in length and always a challenge to keep the energy and conviction going to the last dance move. The body gets lazy and I have to remind my clients to push through and give me more!! 

“Whatta Man” was a 1993 collab with Salt ‘n’ Pepa and was certified platinum unsurprisingly winning three MTV Video Music Awards. What has occurred to me over numerous listens is the celebration of a black guy that is in contradiction to the stereotype that still exists to this day in R&B music….. he is a man that doesn’t loose his sex appeal just because he respects a woman and has a moral compass . This is maybe too literal an understanding of these lyrics and yes there are always layers but for a track that’s over 20yrs old it’s bloody impressive….

TUESDAY’S TRIALS….Anyone feeling slumpy and slothy?! I definitely am hence me recycling my recent shoot for this post!! It’s coming to the end of term and that suggests a slowing down but in reality for many of us that isn’t the case. It feels like we’ve been short changed on Summer and the unimpressive temps don’t help either. I’ve got to find one more energy burst for the final sprint to schools out in two weeks and it feels unachievable. The last leg is always the hardest and I know what’s on the other side….some really well needed timeout but that carrot of an incentive isn’t doing it! If anyone has any bright ideas for clearing that last hurdle then I’m all ears……

BACKLESS AND BOHO…….christened this gem of a dress today and caught the last of the sunlight to show its detailing. Part peasant, part prairie, part gypsy in style with tie details and a lovely swishy weight to the skirt, perfect for a slo mo twirl! Only issue was sorting the braless situ which although liberating needs addressing for the next wear so will be shopping for options as my love affair with backless dresses continues with no sign of abating…..

FLIRTY FRIDAY…..What are you  flirting with? I don’t mean with the same/opposite sex either. I’m talking about flirting with ideas and it happens to be one of my favourite past times. Lying in the sun, on a train or long journey, before falling asleep or in an empty museum cafe with time on my hands….I find it such a pleasure and need these moments and my brain seems to naturally go into a creative process, my happy drug. I hope I always have that ability to loose myself to ideas and if you haven’t tried it yet I would recommend seeing where it takes you….it’s like meditation and is the equivalent to my very physical dance classes but for my mental health which need I remind you is a physical piece of equipment too and requires its own healthy regular exercise….happy flirting people!

TENNIS WHITES…..

I had an amazing reaction to my Steffi Graf post so I thought I’d stay with the Wimbledon vibe and try my hand at a tennis inspired shoot….my Thurspiration….

I have always loved a vest dress and one in pure white screams sport, summer and freshness. The vertical ribbing with just the right amount of stretch and cut away shoulders all combine for a really easy laid back street look with a smattering of Neneh Cherry and the only footwear that I would consider pairing are sneakers (any heel would cheapen it) and these Novesta ITOHs with the green flash at the ankle are perfect and no I can’t play tennis in this dress but I can stride down the high street and run for a train in it so in my book it’s a winner and the vest dress always has been for me before “sports luxe” was even a thing. It’s in my wardrobe DNA so there is little point trying to resist…..

WEDNESDAY’S WOES…. These guys had them in spades and a mountain to climb and although just a tale by Shakespeare “Romeo and Juliet” does make you think… families at war, ill fated love….there is always a modern equivalent…

What I adore about these ballets is the analogue… no social media, no nuance just a love that fights to exist and it is physical, expressive and raw.

Virtual love and romance has had to substitute for the real thing during Covid but I would say to lovers , universally, put down your devices and go analogue now that we can,  it is what we were made to experience and feel…no machine will ever be able to duplicate human contact. This beautiful image of dancers from the Opera de Paris Ballet illustrates our most natural and innate need to connect and be…..

BALANCE……I was playing with some yoga balance poses pre teaching class tonight and it was either coincidence or an awareness as I really noticed my weaker side and my own balance skills were a story of two halves. It’s not strange or unexpected, we are all slightly lopsided….dominant on one side so weaker on the other. If I stopped doing class I wouldn’t get that important correspondence your body automatically relays to you when you move it , another good reason to exercise people. Your body talks to you all the time if you listen to it… we do so much numbing of our minds and the body follows suit. I’m all for loosing myself in something that doesn’t require effort or thought but day to day we do need to listen as the clues are often there…..is my dodgy balancing a metaphor for what I need right now?……I think it probably is….
