I caught sight of myself the other day in a large restaurant mirror - hunched over, looking grey and exhausted, flat hair, all saggy round the middle, NOT good!!!

What short and long term fixes do I need to just look, basically, better? More groomed, less harried. Is it just down to clothes and make-up? And spare time to spend on yourself?

I used to look young for my age (I’m 46) but sadly no more. Fixes need to be realistic as I’m a single parent, work full time, and have very little ‘me’ time! Restrained by budget too. It feels hopeless!

Please - anything?!

We wear our hair everyday, so perhaps get that sorted? Think of it from a cost per wear point of view.

Get measured for a new bra.

Blusher all the way!

Polished nails. Just a coat of clear varnish and moisturise your cuticles. Then your hands look cared for.
Hair is a quick fix.
Drink water, maybe some yoga for posture long term if you have time?
