Ageing Well and Living Forever Chic

A new book about ageing well from my favourite writer, Tish Jett, has been published in New York by Rizzoli International Publications. Tish writes beautifully about the Frenchwomen's art of living well, incorporating good habits and little luxuries into their day-to-day routine. Their secrets for lifelong style starts with personal discipline and belief in quality in all things, every day. Discipline goes hand in hand with beauty - quick fixes have a trade-off. Giving time to beauty rituals is essential, as is being smart with your skincare expenditure. Tish writes, 'With each passing birthday, I realise that one of the most important goals in my life is serenity." The bathroom cabinet is a sanctuary for our beauty, health and mental wellbeing. Curated and personalised for you, the November beauty bargains might be tempting but go shopping with a well-thought through rationale. The benefit of the dark nights & fireworks season is to go from the outside in; to reflect, re-work and reconsider how the year has gone and where to go from here. The same goes for our wellbeing rituals. Are they designed to regenerate us for our lives to run smoothly, beautifully and effortlessly as in France or are they an ad-hoc bargain decision?

SAVE or SPEND REVIEW: Aldi Cuvee Moisturisers

This was an independent study [not funded by Aldi or any other 3rd party]. Please note that Aldi have independent data on improvement of skin parameters. The participants were unaware of this as well as the packaging; they were only evaluating "skin feel".  The age and skin types of my participants are below - they are a group of skincare connoisseurs - enjoying a spectrum of brands - natural, professional, medical to prestige. All based in Yorkshire, Caucasian and like a bargain too! Connotations: The Neck Mousse KS: Good connotations [with the limitation of any mass-market offering]. The British are yet to learn to use neck creams. This product might be an introduction..  The product texture is right for hydration of the neck area. Different skin types respond differently - for some too rich, for others not enough but the product absorbs well and that is important. Recommended for all skin types aged 45 +. Great gift for your mother or aunt. SPEND [FOR YOURSELF AND THE FAMILY]. I loved the neck cream, it did make a difference.  "I felt I was using something nourishing. It felt good on my skin, silky, creamy, even like an "expensive" product." I am not sure without any packaging but feel
