Mammoth blog.



Well despite being on holiday I still found time to pole dance as you can see from the pictures! The week in Algarve was fabulous as always, I simply love the laid back lifestyle. Most of our time was spent next to the pool at our villa, the rest of the time was spent visiting the local veg and seafood markets to stock up on fresh produce which we then cooked poolside on the barbecue.

Our fish and seafood purchases included Sea Bass, various types of Bream, Tuna and Prawns. 6 of the prawns were a variety I had never seen before, they were about 25cm long and were pillar box red, they were so sweet and succulent that I would definitely buy them again. Our meals were generally accompanied by salads or fresh veg and beer of course!

Poolside reading came in the steamy form of the first book by Belle de Jour. Great holiday reading.

Tuesday 6th March was my second wedding anniversary, My husband and I basked in the sun using our pool inflatables - video evidence to follow. I won't go on about my holiday too much as I really can't explain how great it was- I hope to return to the Algarve ASAP.

For those of you living in Canada you may be interested in an event being organised by the delightful Tammy Morris aka Vancouver Pole dancer, Tammy is organising a student showcase to raise money for animal charity BCSPCA, check out their very cute website with animal of the month Jose pictured below right.

A bit of fitness advice, check out the NHS new fitness videos, a great source of free advice including advice on sex (apparently there could be evidence to suggest that increased orgasms could increase your life expectancy!), women's health, exercise via Katak dancing and the new vid section featuring various advice including how to deal with anorexia and bulimia. Don't miss out on the free Bollywood dance taster video

Don't forget the art of dance Pole Jam at our Plymouth studio this Saturday 17th May, the event starts at 12 and finishes at 5pm, there is no need to book and all are welcome as long as they are happy to have a go at pole dancing. Entry costs £5 n the door, half of the money raised will be going to the Anthony Nolan Trust.

So glad you had a relaxing time. Funny you mention the Bollywood dancing - I'm devising a Bollywood pole routine at the moment - I just love Bollywood music.
