My Secret Garden and my faux Fur Vest

White Monk fur vest
MAC "Goes & Goes" lipstick

Hi all! You've certaintly left some great comments in my last blog psot, I've gone and downloaded some of the games you've suggested, at the moment though, I am loving Pucca's Restraurant on iphone! Takes up so much of my time these days... hehe

This week I went to a charity event for Zumba. It was for the "Go Red for Women" Charity and the event was a Zumbathon at Penrith panthers Club. It was so fun. We danced for 1.5 hours and had three different instructers.
I went because my Zumba teacher from my gym asked us to come along, and she is my favourite instructer at my gym. Do you guys like to gym, and what are your favourite classes?

My favourite is definitely pump class and Zumba. I think I like the dance element the most - I used to do hip hop dancing a few years ago. My Zumba instructer though, is unique, she tends to really mix hip hop tracks from Pitbull and JLO etc into her classes and her dance moves are more hip hop influenced. Other Zumba techers tend to stick to the more Salsa feel to their classes. One of the best highlights was that we got the cheographer from The Lion King Musical teaching us Zumba, THAT GUY CAN MOVE! Wow!

Zumba aside, Do you guys like my chiffon dress? I love the cut, it's so ladylike. The sleeves are my favourite because its not often you find long sleeved dresses these days. And the fur vest I thought gives it an edge, an animalistic egde; also keeps me very warm :)

Enjoy your week everyone!
xx Natalie

Whoa whoa whoa, the LION KING?? That is way too cool! man, I'm not surprised if he has skills. Goodness, hearing you talk all about this Zumba makes me feel all flabby. haha It's because I don't work out regularly...which I should. I think it's just a matter of finding the kind of workout that fits both my lifestyle and my personal preference, I guess.

Always gotta love the JC shoes. :)

The dress is gorgeous...and perfect for all seasons (well certainly in Ireland anyway). And the pairing with the fur vest definitely gives it an edge. Great outfit.

Super cute outfit. Yes, I gym. I used to run and do classes, but have unfortunately obtained a lower back problem that now prevents me from doing classes. I loved Body Combat and Body Pump the best. I couldn't get into Zumba at the gym. I think if I wanted to dance for exercise I'd prefer to go to an actual dance class.

Absolutely loving this outfit! The colour of the dress is so great on you, and I love the sleeves! Gorgeous, girl!

Zumba sounds so fun! At the gym, I love kickboxing and spinning, but it sounds like I'm definitely going to have to try zumba!

That brown dress is lovely indeed, and looks great with the fur and your hair! Back in the states I used to love going to step classes... so '80s and cheesy but it was a great way for me to exercise!

cheers,

this outfit is all kinds of fabulous. i love throwing my vests over my dress....if only it weren't so darn hot here! the dress is very pretty, and love the knee highs! i used to be a gym rat, but now (with kids) i do a lot of outdoors things. i totally want to try zumba, tho. all my friends do it!

[oomph.]

Claudia Zander said...

I love your fur vest!!

PJ said...

i'm a bit of a gym-a-holic and love combat and pump. I went to zumba once but it was by myself so I didn't have as much fun as I would if I went with a friend. I have absoultely no rhythm either!

Macarons&Coquelicots said...

Such a great look ! Everything is perfect. Really love it.
