Why twitter is the new dating frontier — I met my boyfriend Dan on Twitter. Yes, really. Modern? Certainly. A bit embarrassing? Perhaps, to some. Common? Increasingly. In just one hour, late on a Wednesday night, I received messages from over 100 people saying they, too, had found love on Twitter. Many had stories similar to mine, of friendship that blossomed at a manageable pace.

Beauty: some wrinkle creams really work — Retinoids (compounds related to vitamin A) are a rare thing in beauty - anti-ageing ingredients that we know help reduce wrinkles and other visible signs of ageing. Historically, it's been argued that only prescription-strength retinol products are concentrated enough to cause change, but the clinical evidence no longer concurs.

Sali Hughes has FOGO — I went out four times last week. An unusually high engagement count, all unmissable and great fun, with people I love dearly. By Friday morning, I was spent, knackered, cross, reading Thai takeaway menus as porn and fantasising about my onesie and the latest Vanity Fair. Lesson learned.

Beauty: gels rebooted — My relationship with gels has, on the whole, been pretty unsatisfying. I find eye and cleansing gels drying, hair gel outmoded, gel moisturisers insufficient and gel makeup extremely difficult to work with on all but the oiliest skins.

In The Bathroom with Val Garland Part One — In The Bathroom with Val Garland Part One Sali interviews the legendary make-up artist Val Garland about her career, her influences and her collaborations. The Val Garland School of Make Up is currently accepting applications here: . Sali will also be tutoring on this course.

sali hughes twitter trolls — I recently told a girlfriend on Twitter that I'd been to see Formula One and found it boring, gauche and pointless. My tweet was in response to her posting that photo of Lewis Hamilton spraying champagne into the face of a decidedly uncomfortable looking "Grid Girl" on the winner's podium.

Where are all the politicians? — There's a general election in two and a half weeks. You may have noticed from the sensationalist poster campaigns at every bus stop, meticulously balanced (and consequently exhausting) TV coverage, gleefully biased newspaper reports and blanket social-media campaigning (you can't get a Twitpic of penguin in a jumper for love nor money, currently).

Beauty: the best products for grey hair — A friend's grandmother once told me she swore by Heinz tomato ketchup as a pre-shampoo treatment to brighten her silver hair. Though I've since heard the trick applied more usually to chlorinated blonde hair, enhancing the beauty of grey has always intrigued me.

Sali Hughes on her lifelong obsession with Madonna — It was 1984 when I first saw her. I was nine years old and sitting in front of the telly in my South Wales living room, watching Top Of The Pops with my big brothers, when she appeared with one of hers dancing behind her.

Have you got Summer Affective Disorder? — Britain is to expect a three-month heatwave this summer, said the experts last weekend. My Twitter feed rejoiced at the news; the tabloids grabbed the chance to publish bikini shots and exercise their unique use of the word SCORCHER; my taxi driver was so ecstatic I feared he'd run a red light.

@HadleyFreeman @helenlewis It's quite something that she had visible bum enhancement built into back of her dress. Not strictly necessary.
