how to succeed at the splits (just don’t ask me)

Well, this silhouette is not me doing the splits. Had you already guessed that? If I had taken a photo of my attempt at the splits you wouldn’t have realised that the splits was actually what I was trying to do. I would have looked just a bit silly and very, very uncomfortable.

I have been in some very unusual poses this week – think mid push up position with one of my legs outstretched resting on my elbow. Can’t even imagine it? I couldn’t even believe I was doing it. I think this is one challenge that I’ll leave right there – in the past.

how to have a happy wardrobe

by guest writer Leanne Lind.

I love sorting and reorganising peoples wardrobes. I even convinced my dad to let me fix his wardrobe (to give you an idea he still has a top from when he was 21 in there!)

If you are the sentimental type maybe enlist in the help of an honest and slightly ruthless friend. Trust me you will thank me once its over!

Now comes the tricky part, I find it easier when you just pull everything out and start from scratch. Have a toss, keep and maybe pile and try anything on that your not sure about or haven’t worn recently. A good rule of thumb is to seriously think about throwing anything out that you haven’t worn in the last year.

Once that’s completed, colour coding tops and grouping items together like jeans, shorts etc makes for a neat, organised wardrobe. Often I find that once this stage is done you can assess what you actually need to finish off your wardrobe. Need new cute ballet flats to go with all those jeans? Or have too many black tops instead of fun bright coloured ones? Its so much easier to see now and make a new list of things you need.

Once this is completed I give my friends clothes I think they will like and give the rest to charity. Cant get much better than that! Friends are often so grateful they will do the same. Now what to do with all those extra hangers? Shopping anyone?
