This is a fun, funky urban dance class to current tunes, with an added focus on fitness moves. Today was one of the first (if not the first!) Strut & Step class ever and song of the day was Beyonce's Girls Who Run The World. It was a goodie.
I'm not really a yoga person, it's true - I'm more of believer that you need to get your sweat on and be totally out of breath in order to be working out but I know that many others swear by yoga.
Bucking the trend of "seeing the thing you are writing about", James Moran walks around HMV and draws his own conclusions.

With Doctor Who celebrating its 50th birthday, I decided the only way to watch the celebratory Day of the Doctor was to take myself off to the cinema to watch it in 3D with three similarly-obsessed female chums (thank you Charli for booking the tickets). And wow, it was good. Amazing in fact.
