At my gym there is this rather intimidating machine that sits in the corner, it is the worst of all the machines in the gym and has the potential to make you sweat more than any other, this one will tell you your weight, BMI and fat mass! I have only ever seen one person on it, and that was a P.T. this is probably because no one wants to be weighed in a gym full of people, but I have always been curious about the result.

It is important to take care of our hearts and for some people with health conditions it is vital.

I was probably about twelve before my parents trusted me to sit in the back of a car without an emergency bucket and blanket on the back seat, my travel sickness was hideous, every holiday, day out, and trip to the shop was at risk of being spoiled with the cries of “QUICK, PULL OVER”. As an adult I seem to have more of a handle on things, but put me in the back of a bus or look at my phone for more than 30 seconds whilst sat in the car and that creeping feeling on my skin and lurching sensation in my stomach soon raises its head (on my lunch).
When it comes to going to sleep there seem to be two camps that people fall into: those who fall asleep the moment their head touches the pillow and those who stare at the ceiling willing themselves to drop off whilst their mind plays over all the ridiculous things they have done over their entire life. Not only is the Dodow Sleep Aid here to give you something other than the Artex to contemplate at night but it can also help you nod off by using breathing exercises to wind the body down, ready for sleep.
My boss was reluctant to give me this piece as they knew it would trigger a rant about gendered products they didn’t want to sit through so close to lunch time, from man-sized tissues to “good girl” dog treats it is a pet peeve of mine, so I will keep it brief, when I’m shaving I do not need the product to be pink/purple (I could let the rose gold slide) with a lipstick logo and cutesy name to remind me that I am female; the media, society and my recent cervical screening has got that covered.
As anyone with long hair will tell you, not all hairbrushes are born equal, a decent well-made hair brush can last you a lifetime and leave you looking great in the morning, a bad one can damage your hair and leave you looking worse than when you first got up.

Over 130 years ago, Mason Pearson was an engineer and inventor, beginning with crafting wool processing looms in Bradford.
I rarely paint my nails because having coloured finger ends isn’t a high priority for me, however when I do it takes me ages to get the perfect coating only to find it’s already beginning to chip within 24 hours making my hands look worse than before. Your nails go through a bit of a bashing during the day, with house work, gym and training sessions and typing like a demon on the laptop, Gel Polish might be a better option as they have a tougher finish and protect weaker nails.
