With my holiday being about 5 months away, I've decided to book my ideas up and get into shape, although my current enthusiasm is 0%.
My other half is gym obsessed! So I ask him to give me a routine to work at that's going to shift that belly flab! So he set one up for me...welll I don't know if I regret it or not. He had me lifting weights and all sorts! I thought it would be a simple matter of some crunches etc but nooo im on full on workout, bench presses, the lot!
Im determined to carry on and get my bikini bod, but the bit that bugs me is that I'm the kinda person who wants to see instant results (i know it's not realistic) so I get fed up after a while!
Any tips for getting that toned stomach let me know!

I'm a lover of vest tops, especially loose ones for summer, but a lot of the time (I don't know whether I'm just fussy) I think vest tops are either really boring, or just too expensive! So I figured why not make my own for much cheaper, and then I can design how I want them to look.
My planned venture will be statement back tops. I don't know about anyone else, but I've always thought that detail on some tops looks nicer when on the back rather than the front. It's like, you look at a top that's plain on the front and think 'hmm yeah it's nice' then turn it round and BAM! Gorgeous detail on the back.
So the plan is to have tops in an assortment of colours (and possibly styles) then really interesting backs.
Here's just a hint of what to come;
Let me know what you think :)
..Watch this space..
Obviously being a dressmaker I am expected to have plenty of fabric lying around, but I really do think I have a bit of a problem. At the moment I have a huge chest full to the brim of fabric, another two boxes full, random bags dotted around here and there with even more in. To be honest, if I really wanted to, I could actually set up my own fabric store. The main problem is, that it's literally all fabric that I haven't used for ages! But just like when you're clearing out your wardrobe, when it comes to clearing out my fabric boxes I'm always like 'Ohh but I might use it for this, or this, orrrr....' and then I just put it back in. I shouldn't do this!
The other issue is that I just can't help myself when it comes to buying more! Even if I've not really got any plans to make anything with a certain piece, if it's that nice, I just buy it! It's just soo damn tempting.
Before I know it I won't be able to move for the stuff.
What do you hoard and why?
