Lying on a bed, wide awake, I'm fully aware that my eyelids are being sliced open. I've already had three-inch cuts made on both sides of my head and had those stapled back together. But this is no horror story. I can't feel a thing and I'm remarkably chipper. In fact the doctor, who is, with enormous delicacy, removing a sliver of skin from each of my eyelids, has just asked me to stop chatting because it's distracting him. After all, this is an operating theatre. Frankly, I'm surprised to find myself here. A few weeks previously, in my role as a beauty journalist, I'd been offered the chance to be one of the first women to try a new treatment — the T-lift, so called because it involves lifting the face from the temples. This is a facelift, but not as you know it. There are no visible scars because the incisions are behind the hairline at the sides of the upper face. It's performed when you are wide awake — without even sedation, let alone a general anaesthetic. Leah … [Read more...] about The 40 minute face lift you can have in your lunch break

“There's a lot of people that have great ideas and dreams and whatnot,” Kris Jenner told the New York Times in 2015. “But unless you're willing to work really, really hard, and work for what you want, it's never going to happen.” For a woman whose entire life has been documented endlessly for the last ten years, we don’t actually know that much about Kris Jenner. We know she’s 62 years old, mother to Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob Kardashian, as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner. We know she lives in and grew up in Los Angeles, was married to Rob Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner, and is now the “momager” (ie mom and manager) of all six of her children's’ lives. All-in-all, for a woman who’s been a part of 221 episodes of reality television, we don’t know much.

The stars, referred to as idols, start training at K-pop schools from the age of seven. And three of the leading record labels even have their own boot camps, where bosses control every aspects of their acts’ lives. Wannabe idols undergo plastic surgery and are weighed daily … [Read more...] about Korean boy band BTS are set to conquer the UK with two sold out shows — but at what price?
