TV presenter Amanda Lamb admits she’s ruthless when it comes to clearing out the clutter in her home and loves restyling her surroundings. But while she’d be happy to give her home a facelift, she says she wouldn’t be tempted to go under the knife. The former model, who was once the face of Scottish Widows and has presented TV shows such as A Place in the Sun, will be appearing at the Ideal Home Show Scotland later this month. Amanda likes to keep things clutter-free in the London home she shares with her cameraman husband Sean and their two daughters Willow, nine, and Lottie, four. But while she’s often keen to give her home a new look, she’s not tempted to go for surgery to appear younger. Amanda, 45, was a model at 21 – but says the industry was very different back then. Images weren’t retouched to the same extent and models could be different sizes. She thinks she probably wouldn’t be a model in today’s world at the weight and … [Read more...] about Former model Amanda Lamb reveals she won’t have cosmetic surgery to look younger

Maye Musk is giving me an Instagram masterclass. Phone held aloft, eyes shielded from the LA sun by a vast pair of Dax Gabler shades, the model, nutritionist and silver-haired It girl tilts her head this way and that. Snap: the perfect selfie that garners over 3,000 ‘likes’ from her 150,000-odd Instagram followers by the time I get home. Not bad for a 70-year-old grandmother of 10. But most grandmothers don’t have those cheekbones and that clear, pale skin – un-made-up bar a slick of lipstick and dusting of eyeshadow. Most women, grandmothers or not, couldn’t pull off that charcoal linen DL1961 jumpsuit. And Maye is doubtless the only grandmother to celebrate her recent 70th this week with not...

WE'RE always told to wash our makeup brushes to keep our skin healthy, but what about our hairbrushes? It turns out that to keep our hair in top condition, we need to show our trusty brushes and combs a bit of love too. How often should you clean your hairbrush? According to dermatologic surgeon Sejal Shah, M.D, who spoke to Good Housekeeping, we should be cleaning our brushes regularly. She said: "Like all your beauty tools, hairbrushes get dirty with repeated use, especially if you're using styling products on your hair." But it's not just products that can be building up in your favourite brush - dust, dead skin cells and oil can be clogging it up too. Dr Shah explains: "The buildup on your hairbrush can serve as nidus for bacteria and yeast overgrowth, so there is an infection risk." But it's not just the risk of germs that should prompt you into cleaning your bristles. Brushes that aren't cleaned regularly may well end up not working properly either. So every time you swipe … [Read more...] about How often should I clean my hairbrush and what is the best way to do it?

WHEN most fans try and channel their idol’s look, it usually just involves copying their dress or trying a make-up look inspired by them. However, one Kim Kardashian fan has spent a staggering half a million dollars (£350,000) imitating her, and says that she is proud of her new body. Jennifer Pamploma, 25, from Sao Paolo, Brazil transformed nearly every inch of her body by going under the knife. She has had four ribs removed, four pints of fat injected into her bottom, and numerous procedures on her face, including two nose jobs, removal of cheek fillers, and a face lift which left her unable to smile. The cost of her most recent facial procedure was £21,000 ($30,000), which brings the total cost of her surgery to half a million dollars. She said: “I have spent a lot of money, but I feel very confident with myself and have the power to make more money because of my looks.” The Keeping Up With The Kardashians doppelgänger is already planning to get more … [Read more...] about Kim Kardashian lookalike Jennifer Pamplona reveals latest surgery that means she has now spent £350k to look like her idol
