you find the smell of your perfume isnt lasting long, try
putting a layer of non-perfumed body lotion on all the places
you intend to spray before doing so. Perfume clings to skins
natural oils - perfume will cling to the body lotion making
the smell last longer.
Walking is cheap! Blow away your cobwebs with a brisk
walk. A brisk walk over hilly ground (in good shoes, please) burns
off 30% more calories than an average walking pace. Hill walking
tones your legs and rear end too! When you walk fast and put lots
of energy into the steps you can use up as many calories as if you
were running but without putting as much stress as knee joints.

revitalize your mood and give you an instant lift.

Salon Selectives Flexihold 20 Ultra Hold.
Good value for money as a little went a long way,
but hair did feel slightly stiff.
Pro V Flexible Firm Hairspray
Infinium Finishing Spray Fantastic
smell and brushed out really easily but didn't hold for more
than an houre or two.
Very good hold, with shine and without stiffness.
Hair felt soft and smooth for a whole evening with no trace of stickyness.
Schwarzkopf Supersoft Final Touch Spray
Good, firm hold with a natural feel. Gave the hair
a nice shine too.
Paul Mitchell Freeze and Shine
The spray itself was very fine but the hold was really
good. Hair stayed put all evening.
want high performance from your make-up then start with
the best base that you can. Whilst cheaper lipsticks or
eyeshadows may be okay, your make-up will never look right
if you dont use a good foundation. Invest in a good product
from one of the big-name house such as Estee Lauder or Christian
Dior. Apart from getting a quality product, you are bound
to get the best advice as to colour and suitability from
personal service. The beauty representative will always
allow you to try the product on your face as opposed to
the back of your hand (never a true guide), and will suggest
which product will suit your skin type. My young niece swears
by Estee Lauders Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation, which
is oil-free and semi-matte. I, on the other hand, being
somewhat maturer, prefer Estee's Lucidity Base, which has
a lovely texture and is wonderfully light and reflective.
Both priced around £20 - not cheap, but definitely cheerful!
