Spring forward? Yeah right! Daylight Savings Time (DST) falls on 30th March this year, and I'm already preparing myself for a miserably short day of sleep deprivation (it could be worse of course; poor mums wait all year for Mother's Day and when it finally arrives they end up losing an hour of sleep when the clocks go forward!).
The sun has finally made its way out from behind the clouds and for those of us who have spent the best part of winter hiding our make-up free faces from the world at large under snoods, beanies and strategically placed scarves, this can be more than a little daunting.
Here are just a few tips that will make facing your spring beauty fears that much easier.
Weather conditions can have a huge impact on our bodies, from our skin to the inner workings of our immune systems which is why it's important to make some changes to your health and beauty regime as Britain edges ever closer to the coldest months of the year.
I don't know about you but every year I make the same old resolutions just worded differently. For example, last year I decided I was going to take up jogging, the year before - join a gym, before that - walk the dogs twice a day. Well, you get the idea, I know I need to get more exercise but I never stick to any resolutions because they're all far too rigid to fit into the life of a full-time working mother of five. So this year, I'm keeping it simple. I have one resolution which, when adhered to, will dramatically improve my life - this year my one resolution is 'I will improve'.
A single man in London who likes to spend, but who likes to save even
A long, long time ago in a land not so far away it used to
be the case that I could eat and drink whatever I wanted and maintain a body
that was more Johnny Depp than Johnny Vegas.But, as the years go by and the metabolism slowly grinds to a halt, there
comes a time in a man's life when he has to face the facts – notably, if
something isn't done soon I'll be rejected from internal flights in the
USA (if you know what I mean).
The cold, harsh fact that I'm cultivating a beer keg is
accentuated by summer and the layers of clothes that conceal any excesses are
no longer available to wear.I know the
weather's not been great recently but it's not cold and, fingers crossed, the
UK summer will start sooner rather than later which means exposing one's self
to the rest of London and, more importantly, London's female population.
The last time I tried to make New Year resolutions was in middle school. I told myself that I would sleep no later than ten every night, I would only eat one cup of chocolate pudding a day rather than two and I would grow two inches and bra sizes in a year. Try to guess whether or not I was able to achieve my goals.
