Columnist, features writer, interviewer and radio bod. New book, Pretty Honest, out now.

In the Bathroom with Marian Keyes: Pt 2 — Sali rifles through best-selling author Marian Keyes' make-up collection, and discusses her love of foreign pharmacies and grey clouds. Part One can be found here.

Beauty: all I want for Christmas is the scent of iris — It seems impossible to begin to make recommendations for Christmas scents (and I can't claim to be bowled over by any), so I'm narrowing things right down to one ingredient with which I'm currently besotted: iris.

In the Bathroom with Marian Keyes pt 1 — Sali meets best-selling author Marian Keyes to talk beauty, life experiences and her loves of home, family and Chanel nail polish.

Beauty: festive red lipsticks without the guesswork — I always wear red lipstick on Christmas Day. It feels festive and jolly, more tasteful than tinsel, and goes just as well with a party frock and slippers as with a pinny and skewwhiff paper crown.

Good Bob / Bad Bob — Sali has lost five inches and a whole load of hassle. She explains how. So last week I cut off all my hair. I say 'I', when in fact, it was Luke Hersheson who did it.

Beauty: face facts - exfoliants are essential, skin refreshers a luxury — It seems I infuriated many a few weeks back by saying toner is useless. I unwittingly made those who swear by liquid exfoliants such as Clinique Clarifying Lotion, Alpha-H Liquid Gold or Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner think I was dissing their favourite products. Not so.

Christmas gift ideas: best beauty products for women, men and teenagers — I'm a sucker for anything cherry flavoured, and this in particular takes me back to childhood, when I presented my school friends with pocket money pots of Body Shop Morello Cherry lipbalm. This has added nostalgic appeal, thanks to a cheering bean-shaped tin.

Books for the Independent Reader — 4th Estate is the home of literary fiction and cutting-edge non-fiction, publishing prize-winning authors such as Hilary Mantel, Nigel Slater, Jonathan Franzen and Ben Goldacre. Our eclectic range promises books for the independent reader, and our site offers book recommendations, competitions, author videos and author events.

Beauty: grown-up glitter — My feeling is that the opportunities to wear glitter are so scant in adult life that one might as well embrace the six-week window where a little sparkle is entirely appropriate. That time is now. I separate glitters into two categories: Teenagers and The Rest of The World.

Beauty: the new sonics — The principle of sonic facial brushes is the same as for sonic toothbrushes - both claim to offer more thorough cleansing than manual methods (six times cleaner, manufacturers say). For years, Clarisonic ruled the market, but recently several rivals have appeared.

@one_mrs_k @Miss_EBP I really can't face arguing with strangers at Christmas. Have a good one.

@one_mrs_k @Miss_EBP I think you are either misunderstanding or deliberately missing the point. Famous or not, it's a bit embarrassing.

@radioleary It's maddening. If you care, watch, or at the very least, avoid news sources until you can. Very simple.
