Beauty: baby aisle products for grownups — A few years ago, there was a craze for Waitrose Baby Bottom Butter (£3.20).

Life - Sali Hughes: no mother is superior — According to a Harvard study published recently, having a working mother can make girls more likely succeed in future careers, and sons more likely to help around the house when grown up. Seemingly, it took minutes for the papers and social media to slip into generic "working mothers are better" mode, missing the specifics and nuance of the study entirely.

Sali Hughes: the 50 best beauty buys under £20 — Great beauty products should be available to everyone, regardless of income or budget. Some are easier to find than others, though. Great inexpensive pencils, nail polishes, mascaras, body lotions and glosses are 10 a penny. Decent budget foundations and concealers are harder to find.

Life - Sali Hughes on shedding friends — A group of psychology professors in America have recently published their results of their 30-year study into how adult friendships work.

Beauty: barely there mascara — As someone in possession of short, poker-straight eyelashes, I must confess that I have never been drawn to the idea of an understated mascara (other than when I was at school and pretending to wear none). The point of mascara, for me, is to create the fluttery, curly, cow-like lashes I was so cruelly deprived of at birth.

Let's hear it for honest celebrities — Last week, actress Olivia Colman told The Times of her love of Botox, saying she enjoys getting the anti-ageing injectables between filming commitments (ie when she doesn't need full control of her facial muscles). On Monday, Gillian Anderson mentioned in an interview with The Guardian that she doesn't consider herself a single mother, because she has a full-time nanny.
