so long to sarongs ... hello to the maxi


THIS Myleene Klass zig-zag maxi dress (€22 at littlewoodsireland.ie) is the perfect holiday cover up.

When sarongs were the only show in town, I bought into them, but they now seem fiddly, antiquated and ultimately unsatisfactory because of the limited coverage they provide when you're walking around in your bikini.

The use of a chic dress you can fling on and off when you're upright and on dry land seems so obvious now – and this sophisticated, slightly see-through number with hip-high side splits is just the ticket.


IF like me you have been known to use shampoo and/or conditioner to shave your legs, or apply to a mitt for a good scrub, then you will be keenly aware that haircare cost is an issue and high-end products are not a part of your shopping list.

But you're still entitled to a decent haircare product range that allows you crowning glory to shine.

Aldi's Carino Herbals Shampoo range (400ml/€1.99 each) is not only a good price – with the requisite grooming post-washing you will get salon smooth locks too.

Available in three varieties to suit normal, coloured/highlighted and dry/damaged hair all bases are covered.


I ALWAYS think it's best to fret about the things we can change easily – and let the rest pass you by.

Thread veins, pigmentation, sun spots, lines and wrinkles can all be reduced in appearance or removed altogether with laser. Therapie Clinic's pioneering new treatment Laser360 is an aesthetic laser treatment that combines three revolutionary technologies to dramatically transform skin.

Leading dermatologists have referred to it as the "non-surgical facelift", without the dramatic down time and invasive surgery.

Each technology is delivered through a simple handpiece that is placed against the skin. The treated area will gradually rejuvenate over the course of your customised treatment plan. Treatments cost €120 per session, or you can book six 6 treatments for €450.
