Health & Fitness Week: A Bit On The Side….

Yes, yes, I know in theory we are supposed to get all we need in the way of minerals, vitamins and nutrients from our diet. The right food choices should give us the full complement of all our body's requirements for every day life. But what if you're putting your body through extra stress and strain on a new training…
The Nails: T. Le Clerc

The Nails: T. Le Clerc

I'm desperately wishing this horrible weather away, looking forward to the spring's new colours and trends. But when all is grey and dull outside, as Spring drags its heels in getting itself into gear, a pastel nail just won't cut it, no matter how optimistic I may be.

Why buy one when two will do? I have so many products that never see the bottom of the bottle/pan/tube (insert any…
The Simplest Eye of All

The Simplest Eye of All

The holiday has meant many things. Lots of overdue catching up with family and friends (when I wasn't sick as a parrot!) all of course, accompanied by lots of totally unnecessary, but highly enjoyable, overeating and over indulging. And lots of excessively late nights. Which of course, are followed by late mornings. Next week puts an end to all that,…
