Mr MAN ? MR, the new haircare range from Jamie Stevens

Posted on Mar 27, 2016

Jamie Stevens is no stranger to Clothes-Make-the-Man having in the past offered us advice on the latest hairstyles for that coming season and neither is he any stranger to being on our TV Screens, being a regular fixture on This Morning and the resident stylist for X Factor for four years. He is three-time winner of Men?s hairdresser of the year (and is exempt from winning the prize again) and in 2015 was entered into the British Hairdressing Awards hall of fame. He is the youngest ever nominee for Hairdresser of the Year, an award he has been nominated for four times. His latest venture sees him launching an innovative new men?s haircare system, called MR designed to combat the challenges associated with hair thinning, whilst also being perfectly suitable for all men to keep hair strong and healthy. Three years in development, Stevens worked with some of the leading  scientists to develop MR. drawing on the most advanced science and industry innovations, to deliver targeted solutions. As people age hair begins to thin ? an inescapable fact, I?m afraid ? which is a result of the active growth cycle slowing down so lost hairs are not replaced as quickly. However, this common complaint is still seen as a largely taboo subject despite findings from research showing the fact that 56% of young men (aged 18-24 years old) and 33% of ALL men have concerns and anxieties over it and, until now, there has been very little on the market to actively and effectively target this problem. MR. is divided into three categories, Disguise, Thicken and Style, the line-up is a clearly defined range of 12 products, all containing a unique active complex designed specifically for this collection ? System- PPXTM ? proven to help promote thicker, hydrated and stronger hair. Disguise contains two hero products, the MR. Hair Fibres and MR. Disguise Spray, both of which are designed to subtly, but effectively, mask areas of hair loss. The Spray adds colour to the scalp, to disguise thinning and receding areas and the Hair Fibres attach to existing hair, to make it look fuller and thicker. Results are truly unprecedented. The Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment within the Thicken category all create healthy strong, thick hair and the seven Style products incorporate formulas to help support the strength and structure of the hair. read...

Don?t Throw That Away! An A-Z of leftovers, tired veg, etc and what to do with them.

Posted on Mar 27, 2016

This piece started after an article in the Independent about the top 10 foods that we apparently throw away in the UK. I took to Twitter to ask people what usually ended up in their bin, and then spent a whole day and night answering hundreds of queries ? some of them came up a lot, like bread and mushrooms, and some were rathee more surprising, like ?half a jar of caviar? (not a problem I can say I have ever had, but I am here to help, and inverse snobbery is as ghastly as the original kind so please, resist the urge.) I have compiled them all here as an A-Z, and will keep this list going, and add to it regularly, as a handy reference point ? so keep checking back! And add your own tips at the bottom, our ?hive mind? is a much better thing than my admittedly limited experience!! Also remember you can always use the search bar on the blog to find recipe ideas too, for that stray carrot, half a tin of pulses or bargain bag of oats? As ever, I would love this to be shared far and wide as I have designed it to be useful, but please bear in mind it has been about 14 hours unpaid work so please don?t just nick it ? link to it or credit, and if you are a profit-making site or news organisation get in touch and we?ll sort something out, coz I?m happy to help individuals ? it?s what I do ? but if you?re a big fish gonna make money out of me it?s probably fair to pay me too. Friendly little prod. If you suspect this is about you then it probably is, HuffPo, Daily Mail, I?m looking at you. ON WITH THE SHOW. A. Almonds: Blitz into a pesto with greens, garlic, lemon, oil and salt. Cook with sugar and spices. Make almond milk. Cook into a passanda. Toss through salad. Chop and add oats and sugar and bake in granola. Apples: Sweeter apples make a great apple butter, there are lots of recipes available online for it. Stew them until soft and use as a vegan egg replacer in cakes. Dried apples are good too, slice and bake in the bottom of the oven to dry out then store in a jar for a few months. Aubergines: Baba ghanoush, aubergine curry, miso aubs, aub and kidney bean burgers, roast aub soup, aub and lentil pasta sauce? Avocado (bruised/freckly): Some brown bruised bits are fine, use your judgement. Excellent mashed in guacamole with lots of lemon or lime, you won?t even see the bruises by the time it?s all thumped together. B. Baking powder: Lost its fizz? You can use it to clean things with, like stubborn pots, the oven, whites in the machine, etc. Some folks clean...

Mums & Tots Round-up: Spring cleaning with a toddler in tow

Posted on Mar 26, 2016

Photo credit: Photographee.eu, Shutterstock Is it really possible to Spring Clean with a toddler in the house? Spring is in the air! Welcome back to Mums & Tots, and how lovely to see a bit of spring sunshine. If you are anything like me you will have started the spring clean! I don?t know why but I love to have a good sort out at this time of year, get the garden in order tidy out the old toys and clothes and create space and calm. Ha ha ha you remember I have children right? So tidying and sorting always makes me think that its like stacking papers in a hurricane! I can?t be alone though can I? I mean I tidy the kitchen and as a trade-off end up with a royal mess in the dining room. So I called upon the power of social media to see if anyone had any life hacks ( you know those simple things that mean you can do something easily) to help me get a spring clean and sort completed. Helena from Babyfoote, shared some tips on cleaning including giving your toddler some small chores, or distracting them while you do yours. Chloe from Life Unexpected agreed that involving your toddler was a good idea and even has a list of 10 chores a one year old can easily help with, I have to say its a brilliant idea, my Termite (the youngest of the three) loves ?helping? but I think that is because its something she has seen everyday, unlike the big two who missed my cleaning frenzy as it was always after work while they slept. Milla from live Oxfordshire points makes me believe with these 5 unlikely uses for a toddler, that toddlers are their very own life hacks, I mean who better to fetch things just out of reach? Nadine from JuggleMum did this post about how to encourage children to help with household chores. Do you have any tips to make tidying a little less like filing in a hurricane and a little more like the productive task it used to be? About Karen Monkeyfooted Mummy Karen aka Monkeyfooted Mummy, Blogs at http://blog.monkey-feet.com where she writes about being a mammy to 3 young children, family travel, food and days out! At heart a recycling, eco friendly hippy, she loves growing things on her allotment, making things with the kids and being creative. She is happiest talking about bumps babies and toddlers and all that goes with the craziness of being a Mam and she is looking forward to getting to know lots of new bloggers and reading all your “Mums & Tots” posts. read the...

New Dad?s Army featurette looks back at the past

Posted on Mar 25, 2016

Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, Bill Nighy as Wilson, Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones, Bill Paterson as Fraser, Michael Gambon as Godfrey, Blake Harrison as Pike and Danny Mays as Walker Dad?s Army stars Toby Jones (as Captain George Mainwaring), Bill Nighy (as Sergeant Arthur Wilson),Michael Gambon (as Private Godfrey), Tom Courtenay (as Corporal Jones), Bill Paterson (as Private Frazer), Daniel Mays, (as Private Walker) and Blake Harrison (as Private Pike). The cast also includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sarah Lancashire, Alison Steadman, Ian Lavender and Mark Gatiss. It is 1944 and World War II is reaching its climax. The Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army.  But in Walmington-on-Sea morale amongst the Home Guard is low. Their new mission then ? to patrol the Dover army base ? is a great chance to revive spirits and reputation, that is until glamorous journalist Rose Winters arrives to write about their exploits, setting the pulses racing and putting the local women on red alert.  MI5 then discover a radio signal sent direct to Berlin from Walmington-on-Sea.  There?s a spy on the loose! The outcome of the war is suddenly at stake, and it falls to our unlikely heroes to stand up and be counted.  The original TV show ran from 1968 to 1977 and this new featurette looks at what has gone before. It then shows lots of new footage and interviews with the main cast. Oliver Parker is directing the new film which is in cinemas on February 5th 2016.
