Bottoms Up At This Morning

Yesterday was the first official show of the summer (well the clocks went back last Saturday) so naturally all thoughts turned to cellulite in the beauty department at This Morning. Four very, very brave viewers got their bottoms and thighs out in front of Philip and Fern and showed their lumps and bumps to the nation to test four anti cellulite regimes.

Spot Stoppers

When I wrote back in February that I wanted you to e-mail me to ask me anything I never expected to be so inundated with questions. Thank you to every single person that wrote, and continues to write, in. It has given me such a clear idea of what you want me to write about. And so this is a post on spots, and how to zap zits and stop them in their tracks.

This Morning Puts Long Lasting Lipsticks To The Test

I have just spent the morning at This Morning putting long lasting lipsticks to the test with the help of five models, a handsome personal trainer called Paul, a juggler and the sweetest mini Fun Fair.

My five girls had to bob for apples, eat candy floss and toffee apples, kiss strong man Paul on the cheek and blow up bendy balloons, all in the name of testing the staying power of the new generation long lasting lipsticks.

Travel Light ... Look A Mess

I am just back from ten days in The Maldives which should have been heaven, but nowhere is without your luggage; and mine was lost for four days. Now I often have to write about travelling light and looking good, and I think that is possible. But being on holiday without any luggage at all, just is not.

I know because I was forced to try it.

Nude and Improved

I love nude lipsticks. In fact my endless quest is for the perfect no nonsense, low maintenance nude lipstick to cover my too pink lips. Inspired by the catwalk looks at Paul Smith, Fendi, Blumarine and Givenchy – and of course the icon of nude lips Jennifer Lopez - I have slicked on and wiped off more lip colours than I can say, and here is my short list of the best.

Doin' A Diva

I have met a few Divas, capital d, in my time; singing diva Beyonce Knowles, sexy diva Pamela Anderson, and style diva Kate Moss. This is why I had to share this piece of beauty gossip with you about a divine diva. Barbra Streisand is almost as famous for her perfectly manicured nails as she is for her uber talent. So when gorgeous husband James Brolin wanted to do something special for her, he had her car sprayed to match her favourite nail colour OPI Bogota Blackberry. How fabulous is that?


Victoria Beckham's New POP - I Predicted This Month's Ago

I love Victoria Beckham’s new do, or POP (posh crop), nearly as much as I love the man that created it Ben Cooke. And regular readers will know that he told me exclusively that he was going to take Victoria much shorter back in November. Well now he has done it, and at the same time she visited Johnny at Chris McMillan’s salon on Burton Way LA (the man who created Jennifer Aniston’s iconic hair back in her Friends days) for the stunning LA blonde colour.
