Life - Is this the secret to a lasting, happy marriage?

Sali Hughes and India Knight put the world to rights

Beauty: My go-to brushes for day-to-day living — Eight months ago, I was sent a brush that I've used almost daily since. Perhaps not the most remarkable statement, but given that I own in excess of 500 makeup brushes and have only been quite this devoted to a handful, I felt compelled to share the love (albeit belatedly; I've been sitting on my hands until it became available to buy on its own).

The mother’s guide to porn and why it’s essential to tell our kids about it — Last week, Woman's Hour presenter and mother of grown-up sons Jenni Murray told the Cheltenham Literature Festival that, given the choice, she would scrap traditional sex education - or, rather, move its syllabus over to biology lessons - and focus instead on gender roles and the sexually explicit climate we live in, studying pornographic films and analysing them like Dickens or Austen.

My life in makeup: the beauty products I'll never, ever throw away — In my loft there is a red plastic B&Q toolbox filled with makeup no longer fit for purpose, but that I'll never, ever throw away. There's a dried-out Body Shop eyeliner pen that my mother put in my Christmas stocking circa 1989, which I wore with cut-off Levi's and a lycra bodysuit to Cardiff's Square club.

Trump's right-hand men have condemned Trump - but their records are shameful too — At time of writing, the American Republican party is having conniptions over a leaked tape in which Donald Trump boasts that he kisses women without asking and simply "grabs them by the pussy" because well, he "can do anything" (that's sexual assault, if you're a stickler for accuracy).

Beauty: the best of the high street’s new autumn makeup — Autumn invariably puts me in a good mood, not least because it's typically when the best beauty products launch. Now is when we see hi-tech foundations, new perfumes (proper ones, not watery limited editions for the sunshine holiday market), the widest eye and lip colour spectra and exciting new skincare.

Woolly tights and long sleeves at the ready - the cosiest season has arrived — I'm writing this at 6am on a freezing station concourse. People all around me are shivering as they attempt to eke out the last dregs of summer in cotton dresses and flip-flops. There's a vague air of gloom that I can't help but imagine is weather-related.

Thank you, the NHS — When her son had a three-week hospital stay, Sali Hughes learnt to get over her fear of hospitals - and grow to love the people working there

@sammypatters I would love to but no Newcastle dates in diary this time, annoyingly. X
