Beauty: Marks & Spencer gets a makeover — I love M&S like a kindly aunt. I long for it to do well, but I have, in recent years, been in a constant state of frustration. I want it to sell me the definitive navy cardi, the perfect sucky-in black opaques, the immaculate white tee, but everything seems to be cut so square, so short, so diagonal.

Life - Sali Hughes what do you call your boyfriend when you’re 40 — I was talking on the phone last week to a radiator showroom (oh, the glamour), when they asked me to check my availability for a house-call to measure up. I glanced at my diary and told them I was busy, but my husband would be here to let them in.

budget foundation | Fashion | The Guardian — I have a classic abusive relationship with cheap foundation. I keep rolling again, hoping that this time it really has changed and become everything I've always wanted, only to find the same old problems remain. Very often, high-street foundations are either thin and chalky or thick and paste-like, and they're frequently too pink, too dry, too streaky.

Life - Sali Hughes on 34 years of sleeplessness — I remember the first time I absolutely could not get to sleep. I was six years old and sleeping over above a South Wales pub owned by the parents of some schoolfriends. The twins and their little sister had gone to bed at 6:30pm, about three hours before my usual bedtime.

Helen Mirren: ‘Do I feel beautiful? I hate that word’ — Helen Mirren hates the Guardian, and she hates female journalists. Before I meet her, I am told this a lot, by colleagues; she's also hinted at it in previous interviews.

News & Views - Sali Hughes: I know women can have abortions they don’t regret because I’m one of them — This month, Dublin-based writer and comedian Tara Flynn and The Irish Times columnist Róisín Ingle each did the unthinkable. Without shame, they told the Irish public about their past abortions, performed safely in England, hundreds of miles from their homeland, where abortion is still almost always illegal.

Life - Sali Hughes in defence of applying make up on public transport — I'm writing this on a commuter train from Brighton to London. Before I opened my laptop, I took ten minutes out of my journey to put on some make-up for my lunch meeting in town. Concealer, powder, mascara, blush and lipstick, all applied in my train seat while my fellow passengers did their own thing and failed to bat an eyelid at mine.

Beauty: America’s best products — I'm recently home from America, where, as always, I spent too much money on beauty products I don't need. "It's my job - my hands are tied," I tell myself as I wait in line with intriguing bottles of afro shampoo, 12 types of Ardell lashes and tubs of face cream shaped like granny smiths (really).
