Well, what a self indulgent week it’s been – as all weeks really should be! Now that Summer is hinting it may be on its way (in between the rain storms and Ash Clouds being blown at us) I realise I should really accelerate my beauty regime in time for looking good in a bikini! I say “beauty regime”, so far it just consists of me telling myself “I really should stop eating junk food…” EvenLOVE IT, WANT IT, HAVE TO HAVE IT! Looking Good, Feeling Great! » LOVE IT, WANT IT, HAVE TO HAVE IT! Looking Good, Feeling Great! the 300 daily sit ups I started so optimistically have grinded to a halt and I’m back to sitting hunch backed over a computer writing my latest script!!!

So it’s good timing then that I was sent Antistax, the Healthy Active Leg capsules. No, they don’t do Leg Squats for you (damn) but they do “help avoid aching, heavy tired legs due to long periods of sitting.” Yes, I know they were probably developed for people on long plane journeys, flying to far-off holiday destinations, but I think it can apply to a computer-bound writer too! So I’ve started to take 2 capsules daily – I LOVE THE IDEA and will keep you posted on the results!

Speaking of the Sun, if it ever does decide to show its face in the UK, well, I’ll let you know, but UV rays do filter through the cloud, and sun damage is one of the most ageing things for skin (that and Sunbeds – don’t do it, girls!) So I’ve started using a product made and tested in Australia. SunSense‘s Anti-ageing Face is not only SPF 50, it’s also a UVA and UVB sun protection moisturing lotion, with ol’ reliable Vitamin E & B3 thrown in for good measure! LOVE IT! So this is now part of my pre-make up daily routine and battle against wrinkles.

Don’t laugh! It’s all about wrinkle prevention, rather than cure these days! That’s why women as young as 21 are starting to have Botox! I’m not that daring yet, but this is certainly a good start!

Another great idea are the super cute Sun Shots! They are mini sachets of SPF 25, water resistant, moisturising sun lotion on the go! So you can thrown em in your hand bag and if the clouds decide to part one afternoon, you won’t be caught with half a burnt face and chest! And the sachets themselves are bright yellow and orange, so you can find them easily in your bag – I mean, they’ve thought of everything! Well done Sun Shots, WE LOVE YA!

So of course, once your body and skin is looking fabulous – or at least on its way… – what every girl needs next is a personal stylist! And how lucky am I, I’ve got non other than GMTV’s Mark Heyes guiding me through the minefield that is British Fashion! Ah, but before you start to go green with envy, you too can get Mark’s expert advice for the bargain price of £14.99! Yep, everyone’s favourite stylist has put together a great book called “Get The Look” (pictured), where he shows you how to create designer styles on a high street budget! The book gives you some really great ideas for all styles and body shapes and shows you how to mix and match items, with loads of photo examples. It’s like Painting-by-Numbers for fashion! With Mark Heyes’ guidance, you can’t go wrong!

And on that note, I’m off to beautify for a night in London’s West End! Oooh, I feel stunning already! Haha! See you all soon! x
