How to loose weight in under 20 minutes..

So I wrote the other week about how I like to schedule things in to keep control and today I figured I would share with you my simple and quick fix workout.. We can't all fit in the gym everyday and not everyone can afford a gym membership.

To get on your road to fitness you only need to raise your heart rate and get a little sweaty each day so here is a lil' something to print out and chuck on the side of the fridge for some easy motivation.

It takes me 20 mins so it may take you a little more if you are just starting out or you can do just 3 rounds. Hey 2 rounds is better than none even so as the great big brand says - Just do it!

Are you a gym junky or do you do it all on your own? I have to say I am a gym junky of late as really into the mind body classes..

How I use Mood Boards to pretend.... to be just about anything..

Interior Designer/ Stylist, Party Planner, Fashion Stylist.. even my own Personal Shopper. I am such a visually driven person and I get real pleasure from creating a cosy home or a lovely little vignette for a certain spot in the house.

I use them for the kids parties and even creating outfits if I have something super spesh to go too.. Call them design boards, inspiration boards, whatever you will but they are all the same premise.

As they are quite a joy to do I thought I would show you guys how you can do them too..

First up I will do a kids bedroom as I have been playing with the idea of moving my son out of his current shared bedroom and this may just give me the boost..

 I already have the bed and wall mural so all I needed was some inspiration images from my Pinterest boards  and then I just add the pictures of things I have spied that I want to buy to see how it will all pan out and if I can make it work.

It is amazing how you add certain things and suddenly go holy moly no way should I buy that it just doesn't match!

Second is a party plan one.. I am planning a little get together for DTLL's B Day in November and this one would work for pretty much any adult party.. even NYE?

I could have added and added to this board but using the mood board had me realise I had too many serving bowls so was forced to choose my favourites and that I had chosen three different wall decor items!.

I use picmonkey in collage to do these simple ones but if you know photoshop you can go to town.

All the inspiration images are taken from my pin boards with all the product items on this specific one.. pinning them is fab as then you can go back and delete any you don't need and easily find the things you wanted to purchase after.

Do you do Mood Boards for anything? Kids projects? Your wedding?
