Exercise has always been a massive part of my life - I did a sport science degree at university and did sport studies at college and at high school I always played football and tennis and whatever sports I could get my hands on.
We can't know for sure what the explanation is behind Cheryl's diminishing frame but whether she is struggling with personal traumas or purposefully dieting to achieve an emaciated figure (which would be an understandable response to the immense pressure she's been put under to remain industry style thin), she is clearly going through something difficult.
Don't get me wrong I have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to my children being rude, aggressive or ungrateful. I would be the first to apologise for that, as well as of course make them apologise too! But I refuse to apologise anymore for my children being inquisitive, engaging, lively and yes occasionally overbearingly loud.
Tourism and awareness of the city and its offering have also increase infinitely duo to the association of the man that Kanye West describes as the rapper of our "time" but Toronto as a stand alone destination is certainly having it's own "time" both in part and separately from said association.
Suddenly we've all got a conscience. Or as frequently happens in situations when humanitarian disasters occur, we've just developed an acute sense of ...
There may not be too many British Films around - most of them have gone to Toronto - but British actors seem to be two-a-penny. Not that Johnny Depp is British but playing his brother in the crime thriller Black Mass is none other than Benedict Cumberbatch.
Until we put an end to the constant attack on women for their appearance, not managing to be a stay-at-home mum and full on career woman AT THE SAME TIME, nipping out for a paper sans make-up, wearing too much make-up, looking older, having surgery to prevent looking older... we shall fail to be a healthy, happy society.
Dear Holly Willoughby, I love you. Don't be scared or anything but I really feel like if we met, we'd definitely be mum friends. I'll admit I'm not exactly the sunny girl-next-door type like yourself (I'm more the haggard hag across the road), but I admire the elementary manner with which you talk about motherhood.
As my family were here two weeks I decided to split up the time with one week at the beach, and the second week in the madness of Hollywood. It's nice to see the different sides of the California - moutains, beach, city, etc however within the area you choose are even more options and decisions!! So here is what I picked and why...
We are facing a global crisis, with over 60million people displaced from their homes (more than any time since World War II), and whilst Germany welcomes 30,000 Syrian refugees with banners and cheers, Britain, one of the richest countries in the world, reluctantly pledges to take in just 500. How has it taken the image of a dead child, face down in the sand, for so many people to realise they have a heart? The pictures of poor little Kiyiya VuranInsanlik were heart wrenching, but maybe the saddest part of it is how many young lives have been lost that seemingly had no impact at all. That's the harshest tragedy imaginable. It's time to take action and stop this.
Having witnessed the performance of Trans Scripts and watched the screening for BBC2's new comedy Boy Meets Girl, where Root plays the loveable Judy, her versatility as an actress is astonishing. "I'm pleased that you've seen both sides of Rebecca Root because I think few people will get to see that," she adds.
For the end of my book Mindfulness for the Frazzled I wanted to be my own guinea pig so had a brain scan done before and after a silent six day retreat practicing mindfulness eight hours a day...
I'm lucky, I've had many roles throughout my career and know how rewarding doing a job you love can be. I always wanted to do well, and I worked hard to get to where I am today but it's the support I get from my amazing family that keeps me going. They're there to pick me up when I'm having a bad day. They're there when I make the wrong decisions, when I'm trying to balance my home life with work or when I need to overcome a setback. With their support, I learn new things about myself and others every day, and over the years have built up the knowledge I can use to help others achieve their dreams. I know not everyone is as fortunate as me.
I know that I'll be called naive or hypocritical, or both. The world needs oil and we all drive cars. But things are changing at impressive speed. Silicon Valley is building more electric vehicles than you can shake a stick at. Batteries are getting better all the time and soon will be in our homes and businesses. It's not hard to imagine a future where the petrol pump is a museum exhibit that children will be boggled by. But Shell wants us to believe that this vision of the future is impossible, that renewable energy is a passing fad.
If you are a survivor of sexual abuse the chances are you will have felt and battled with self-blame, the same as Chrissie still is now - and so did I. This is very normal. The most common question in sexual assault is "Was it my fault?" There are no actions anyone can ever take that make sexual abuse permissible. The offender is always responsible for their actions. What we should be looking at, is why "was it my fault?" is the most common question and how we change this.
We've decided to focus on sustainable fashion for the month of September. We want to redefine modern consumerism - in other words, how and why we buy the clothes we wear. Because honestly, how did we get to a point where we care so little about our clothes that we're willing to throw it in the bin because returning it is too much hassle? To amplify the message, we've asked one of the most powerful voices in sustainable fashion to be our guest editor for this month: Livia Firth, the creative director of Eco Age. A particularly memorable outfit was re-purposing husband Colin's old suit for the Paris premiere of The King's Speech...
