Superdrug is to run enhanced mental health checks on customers seeking Botox and fillers following advice from the NHS. The health and beauty retailer now offers Botox for £99 and dermal fillers for £125 -£349 at its flagship store on the Strand. Only customers aged 25 and over can purchase the procedures, which could be rolled out to other Superdrug stores across the country if the London trial proves popular.
Penrith has for a long time been a stepping stone of a town, the one you might take the train to if you’re spending a few days in the Lake District. So warmly have the locals embraced this status that they’ve even put a 14th-century castle ruin by the station, the better to lure rail passengers to linger.
At my all-girls secondary school in the early '00s, a shiny Tiffany dog tag on a balled silver chain denoted a confidence not typical of teenage girls. Worn by the sort of girls who had donned a Baby G way back in year 5 before anyone else was even comfortable in fountain pen, a piece of Tiffany jewellery marked its wearer out as a person of influence. In a similar fashion and at a similar time to fellow heritage brand Burberry, Tiffany swept through the nation, the mere sight of a little 'Tiffany blue' (the brand’s trademarked colour) box with a white ribbon around it causing mass hysteria.

When Nadiya Hussain’s first novel, The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters, came out in January 2018, it was deemed “lovely”, “funny” and “breezy”. Adding to that is the fact that Hussain is best known as the winner of the 2015 edition of The Great British Bake Off. Or that The Fall and Rise of the Amir Sisters, like the first book in the series, is ghostwritten by author Ayisha Malik, whom Hussain thanks in her acknowledgements.
Queen of the Plate, Paris of the South, Tangopolis: the nicknames reveal why Buenos Aires doesn't disappoint. A beguiling conflation of European historic outpost and contemporary Latin American sprawl, BA – as expats call it – was once the capital of one of the world's wealthiest nations. Its French and Italianate buildings, graceful plazas and cultural life are the envy of most Old World cities. Thirteen million people live in Greater BA, its suburbs fanning out into the surrounding pampas.
In case you haven’t noticed, it is a fairly horrible time to be a budget airline. The final discovery as I trawled through the details of the deal: Virgin Atlantic has been a “bona-fide potential offeror” for Flybe for a couple of months.
Special snow-busting trains will be deployed across the UK in a bid to minimise disruption for travellers during the cold weather. Arctic temperatures are set to sweep the country this weekend, which usually means widespread transport chaos. Network Rail will operate a winter fleet, complete with trains fitted with snowploughs able to clear eight inches of snow, as well as hot air blowers, steam jets, brushes, scrapers and anti-freeze to clear snow and ice from the train tracks.
You could probably argue that the mind of the architect has never dreamed up a style of building quite as romantic as the Gothic fortress. There is something about its points and precision - sharp turrets pointing towards the heavens, a room at the top perfect for a trapped princess or a fairytale character in some curious peril - that sings across the centuries. What, after all, is the Cinderella Castle - the fibreglass fantasy which adorns Disney theme parks across the planet - but a modern evocation of this grand design?
The most important festival in the Chinese cultural calendar means that in mainland China alone, a mind-boggling three billion trips are made in the planet’s largest annual human migration. Here are eight (a lucky number seen everywhere at New Year) places to experience and celebrate the arrival of the year of the pig in true local style. There are few better places to welcome in Chinese New Year than Hong Kong.
Walk along Queen Victoria Street, just around the corner from St Paul’s Cathedral, and you will see a chalkboard in the middle of the pavement. It doesn’t say something zany like ‘Sex sells! Unfortunately we sell coffee’ or ‘It’ll rain now I’ve put this board out’.
