Money Saving Tips
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'.
Fingernails are an important part of any outfit. They are a small detail
that, when done well, blend in perfectly with any look you wish to
portray. Ignore them, though and you inadvertently draw attention to
those ragged little nails and, as we all know, it's the little things
that make all the difference! This is a great time to play with display
of your hands; colour, patterns and classic designs are very popular.
For your fingers it's anything goes!

I've been putting off writing this particular article since last Spring but alas the time has come. Much as I try, I can no longer deny that the fashion of my wasted youth has made its return. The dam broke this morning when I saw the term "90's Grunge" in bold text over at the Telegraph fashion section. Well that does it, the fun, bright 80s nostalgia is on it's way out, forced out by boredom and flannel. My God, it really is the 90s all over again only without the music. Say what you will about the fashion, the music rocked! This is not a music blog-umn though, it's a fashion one. I guess this means I must now attempt to guide you through this 'everything old is new again' trend. Strap up those combat boots, 'cause here we go!
You can look at summer in two ways - beautiful blue skies, warm sunshine and an abundance of colour laid out by our country's natural foliage and abundance of flowers. Or, sunburn, heat rash, insect bites and hayfever! Whilst the latter may be less than enticing, it's a fact that just about every Brit will suffer from one or another in their lifetime so, as the warmer weather approaches, get your medicine cupboard in order so you're fully prepared for whatever the summer throws at you.
First things first. Before you update your medicine cupboard you need to
give it a good spring clean. Check expiration dates on lotions, potions
and medicines and anything that's past its sell-by date needs to go.
(And remember, medicines can be returned to any chemist for safe disposal.)
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.
