Under-estimate “beauty” at your peril For a multi-million-pound business, beauty is unfairly trivialised. I’ve seen first-hand the effect it can have: from painting on the face an A-list actress wants to project and watching them become that character, to working with vulnerable women.

Worry-less

Are you person that worries a-lot? Worry is the cause of emotional needs that are not met and over time worrying excessively can become a habit. Set aside half an hour a day at a time convenient for you (but not just before bed) in which to do all your worrying. If a worry pops into your head before the [...]
