My review for Home Workout (With DVD)


Review:
I had a keen interest in Pilates. It seems to be the rage at keeping fit at the moment. This book seemed appropriate to teach me the basics of Pilates.
I was right. 
This is exactly what every beginner needs to get exercising and keeping fit. It will leave you feeling renewed. Well, that's how I feel after.
Step by step instructions, with proper photos assisting you in your Pilates.
I'm not going to lie to you and tell you it's a piece of cake, it's not! But the end prize of being healthy and fit is worth the tough work to get there. 
Anything in life, you get what you put in, and Pilates is no different. If you're a scaredy-cat like me, to go to the class and work out with a bunch of strangers, then this book is perfect for you too!


5/5

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
