Pawsome playlist

Cuteness overload alert: Spotify and pet-product brand Frontline have united to compile a five-hour playlist for dogs to help stop them feeling lonely. This will come as a relief to the 42% of owners who are concerned their pooches will be confused when they start to be home a lot less as lockdown eases more. So let’s hope tunes such as Elvis’s Hound Dog and Never Tear Us Apart, by INXS, will set your furry friend’s tail wagging (and save our sofas/neighbours’ ears) during solo time.

Feel-good hair brushing

Don’t you just love it when a favourite product adds eco-friendliness to its checklist of admirable qualities? Meet the Go Green Detangler by Wet Brush, which has all the detangling capabilities of the original brush, but is made from an all-natural biodegradable plant starch. This means it will degrade completely when you need to dispose of it (some time in the very distant future, obvs!).

Boots has teamed up with the renowned mindfulness app, Headspace, so you can now buy a Pre-paid Membership Giftcard online, which will give you access to the app for six months. You can choose giftcards for Mind, Health, Sleep or Focus for yourself – or they’d make seriously thoughtful presents for friends or loved ones who’re also feeling a bit stressed. Chillaxing has never been so simple.

The new way to brow

Whether you like your brows fluffy, bold or plucked to perfection, they’re the key way to frame your face. So you’ll want to know about this top new trick: blend different shadow shades to get a subtle, naturally fuller finish. For the base, start with a shadow two shades lighter than your actual brows and run the colour throughout. Then add a darker shade (the actual colour of your brows) on top for depth. Brush through with the Benefit Angled Brow Brush & Spoolie – and beautiful brows can be yours.
