We have finally finished our last buying appointment. Fittingly our last appointment was with Toy Watch.

The lovely Owner of the UK Distribution Company has sadly had to retire due to ill health and we were keen to meet the new Toy Watch UK team. Mary and Tiho made as extremely welcome and we were happy to see that they are passionate about the brand that regularly tops the best selling watch list in Harrods and Selfridges.

We decided to try for the brand after noticing Hollywood celebrities including Urma Therman, Madonna, Sienna Miller, Lenny Kravitz were wearing them.

The Watch is the brainchild of Marco Mavilla, who legend has it, offered his idea of a high quality plastic Rolex Copy to Rolex itself, but they were not interested.

Little did they know that within a few years even Michelle Obama was to be seen wearing the Purple Neon Plasteramic Toy Watch.

Mary and Tiho showed us some great new styles and we have just had delivered the new Oversize XL Chronograph and Fluo ranges.

Time now for me to concentrate on updating our Website with our new deliveries.

OMmm Yoga with Beatrice

Every Wednesday evening I look forward to Hatha Yoga with Beatrice. I love the class. We practice a series of fluid sequences accompanied by beautiful background music. The classes are small and intimate and after the final relaxation accompanied by Beatrice's soothing French voice I feel completely relaxed (as well as much more bendy).

People often wonder what to wear for yoga or pilates practice. If you go for a bootleg pant make sure it has a tie at the hem. This will avoid the pant flapping around your knees during headstands. (Not the most elegant sight especially when legs need waxing!) Capri Pants in a soft stretchy fabric are the best. Tops should be fitted and long enough not to ride up during shoulder stands. ( Keep that flummy-tummy under wraps until yoga'd into shape.)

A couple of years ago I discovered Manukalife Yoga wear. Recently endorsed by Vogue and The Weekend Mail - The Times on Sunday says "Manuka bottoms are unbelievably soft, cling in all the right places and won't ride up mid shoulder stand." The fabrics are gorgeously soft, stretchy and comfortable. No more embarrassing Yoga episodes for me.
