Tuesday 23rd February - Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder

Click here to listen to the interview

Abby Knight - Celebrity Beauty, style and diet writer spoke to me about the latest Beauty Trends for spring. 
Glowing skin is the key to all looks this spring especially with pastels for the eyes and oranges on the lips.  Eyebrows are also getting lighter giving a softer frame to the face.  However if you do like the smokey eyes purple is the colour this Spring! 
False eyelashes are back,  but if you get yourself in a sticky situation then pop to your nearest beauty salon and enquire about eyelash extensions that can last between 3 - 6 weeks!!! They give an instant lift to the eyes and are great if you are going away on holiday or to a special event! If you want a refreshing look with your makeup have a look at Young Blood Mineral Make-up, and for summery look to your skin Tan and Glo could give you the lift you need in the coldest spring in over 30 years
Kate Moss dared to have her grey highlights splashed across the national press and silver/paltinum and grey are colours that you can chose to put in your hair this spring, but the top tip for wearing this colour is keep your hair in a good shiny condition.  Cheryl Cole and Victoria Beckham have also been setting trends for hair accessories and styles with braids, bows and wraps not to mention the Croydon Face lift (the cheapest alternative to going under the knife - scrape hair back into a high ponytail securing it with a tight band and pins. As worn by Posh as a judge on American Idol)
AND if you like something a bit different Chanel have launched a new range of semi permanent body art .  The transfers should be in the shops from the 1st March. Also there is a new nail product on the market, Minx semi permanent nails, which are a big hit with the celebs as they last for up to six weeks.
Here are some places where you can try out the products for yourself:
  • Young blood Mineral Make-up at Saks nationwide or call 01306 886 425 for mini makeovers and a chance to play with colour.
  • Tan & Glo Mobile Tanning Company for this year’s perfect glow at or call 07917 003695/07904 323820 
RYMAN PREMIER: The scheduled Premier Division game between Aveley and Bognor Regis has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
HEAVY rain took its toll yet again yesterday when the complete Ryman
League programme was washed out. Three senior matches and six
involving Ryman Youth League sides were scheduled.
There are 22 senior matches and two youth games programmed for today
but a number of them are already subject to early pitch inspections.
Of those matches due to take place:-
Ryman Premier
AFC Hornchurch   v  Canvey Island
D1 North
East Thurrock Utd v  Concord Rangers
Enfield Town v Brentwood Town
Harlow Town v Heybridge Swifts
Maldon Town v Great Wakering Rovers
Potters Bar Town v Ilford 19:45
To date:-
There have now been 212 postponed matches in the three senior divisions and the Championship Manager Cup since December 19, when only two of the 33 fixtures went ahead. Worse was to follow on January 9 when the complete Saturday programme was lost.
The most postponements occurred during 1962-63. During that season, there were more than 400 postponements in league matches- and this was in the day when they would play in thick snow with an orange ball.
Steve from the Saturday Kick-about remembers a boxing day watching Birmingham v West Brom as St Andrews.  They cleared the lines and played on the white pitch with an orange ball.

Great Britain's men are still in the hunt for a semi-final place at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.  They crushed Germany 8-2 overnight - and now face Norway in their final match.  Not such good news for the women though, they lost a thrilling game against Denmark 9-8 to virtually leave them out of the competition.
John and Sinead Kerr score a seasonal best 92.23 in the free dance section of the Olympic ice dance competition to finish eighth overall, while fellow Brits Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland finished 20th overall.
Keys Hall shopkeepers want answers from the council as to when the hall will be sold to developers so that Warley can receive the same make over as the High Street.
What's the Point? 
MORE than 70 children tried their hand at fencing with the help of a professional yesterday. James Beevers, one of Britain’s top fencers, visited Sunnymede junior school, Billericay, to offer children aged five to ten a taster session. 
Waste not want not?
A STAGGERING £5.6million is being poured down the drain on wasted medication every year across south Essex.  In a bid to stop the cash haemorrhage, health chiefs from NHS South West Essex are now telling GPs in Brentwood to only prescribe enough drugs for 28 days to patients, where possible. As well as reducing waste, bosses from the PCT say other benefits of 28-day prescribing, include a reduction in the risk of overdosing.
Residents Celebrate their Victory!
RESIDENTS who campaigned against two houses being built are celebrating after the application was thrown out by councillors. Planning bosses have turned down plans to build a three-bedroom house, and three two-bedroom houses, at 89 to 93 Park Road, Brentwood.   This isn't the first time the developer applied for planning permission as in 2008, there was an application to build a three-storey block of 12 flats on the land, but met with fierce opposition from local residents. The proposal was rejected by Brentwood Council, and then rejected again at appeal.
Local Flood Rescues
THREE people were rescued from their cars after getting trapped in flood water in Ingatestone.  One woman was rescued just after 3.30pm on Monday after her car became trapped in water along Ingatestone Road.  Another person was saved after becoming trapped in Stock Lane, while another driver had to be rescued from his van after being stranded in Mountnessing Road, Ingatestone.
