AS 2014 draws to a close, my final word from the world of hairdressing has to be for my annual nomination of Hair Style Icon. And this year’s vote has to go to the only woman I know who dares change her hairstyle more than she changes her clothes: the popular Sarah Harding, from Brit […]

Ripped jeans and flip-flops … anything but Speedos!

CHRISTMAS and New Year … loads of food and drink, and loads of time with friends and family. And there’s more, much more for us footie fans. You don’t have time to catch your breath before it’s the New Year and the FA Cup third round. Last week I scraped home against the wife in […]
