With beauty salons still close, there are probably a lot of ladies and gents just like me who are thinking how can we make sure that when the lockdown is over, we don’t look too bad.
I have been looking at Caci for a while as I’ve heard that it’s the facial treatment of choice in Hollywood without having any needles or surgery. It basically uses microcurrents to give your face a workout.
I investigated the pricing and it looked like about £300 and then with that you would need to go a couple of times a week for a few weeks to get the face started and then you do need maintenance which could be from £35 a month depending on many areas do you want to be treated.
With no beauty salons open …
Who doesn’t love a Hollywood smile? Teeth whitening is definitely growing in the UK especially when you see those beautiful shiny teeth of all the influencers and the younger people, so I’ve written about this before and while there are toothpastes available and strips, I think the best way to go and get a white a smile is to actually go to your dentist. Of course, this doesn’t come cheap.
Well, you can have a zoom whitening or get some trays made and whiten at home with a gel, but for the latter, you’re looking at around £300. Obviously, you can look around for offers and sometimes they’ll be 100 quid off, but that’s the price that I’ve been quoted. So what are we bargain hunters to do? Years ago I got some trays …
I have on many occasions despaired at the quality of bras for bigger busted ladies, being one myself I head over to Bravissimo and then department stores….never M&S where my flatter chested buddies can buy lots of lingerie sets for such good prices.
I’m a GG/H and I need support. Bras that lift and shape while not costing a fortune has been my eternal hunt. As I was on my eternal quest to find a bra that makes my boobs look perkier and less saggy, I found Tutti Rouge in a Twitter search. They were looking for people to try out their bras so I thought that sounds like me.
They have a massive, pretty range of fuller bust bras at very good prices – normally I would pay £35 – £40 and these are …

Gel nail manicures cost me between £10 and £34, with the £10 ones lasting barely a week typically, so I wanted a solution to having beautiful nails without paying the high cost. I have tried “gel” varnishes, “gel” top coats and frankly they don’t look anywhere as good as proper gel cured under a LED lamp. So what’s a girl to do? …spend close to £300 a year on nails or find another solution? decided to find another way and think I have found it with Polish to Gel Transformer Starter Kit from SensatioNail.
Basically, you can use it to turn your favourite nail varnishes into a gel manicure! By mixing your own polish with SensatioNail’s Polish to Gel formula and curing under the UV lamp, SensatioNail promises to achieve the same results as …

The world’s biggest Primark store is definitely worth a visit. We went in the first few days and it was packed, apart from the men’s department, so if you need some space, head down there.
The 160,000 square foot mega store spread over five floors opened its doors on 11 April 2019. It’s huge, fun and cheap.
I was really impressed by the Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Disney sections….they even have a Primark Cafe with Disney.
Primark began as a single store in Dublin in June 1969 and you can’t find one in every town.
There’s even a beauty studio called Duck & Dry where shoppers can have their make-up and nails done, their eyelashes extended and their eyebrows plucked – Primark beauty price list below.
There are even a personal shopping service, …
