GABY Soutar rounds up the latest beauty news and deals across Scotland
Break the cycle
Keep arguing about whose turn it is to do the washing up? Then get hold of a copy of Stop the Fight by clinical psychologist Dr Michelle Brody PHD. Amongst other things, this illustrated paperback covers the 12 most cringingly familiar arguments, including The Money Fight, The Household Responsibilities Fight, The Birthday Fight and The Difficult Relatives Fight, and shows how to avoid these destructive cycles and gain a better understanding of your spouse’s feelings and behaviour.
If you’re on the wagon when it comes to junk food, try something from Marks & Spencer’s imaginative new healthy snacking range. It includes Apple and Cinnamon Super Seeds (55p for 25g, pictured); Green Chilli, Lime and Coriander Pea Snaps (60p for 21g), Cranberry and Raspberry Oaty Bakes (40p for 73g) and loads of other lunch-box friendly goodies.
Breakfast of champions
Our mid-January breakfasts have been brightened up by Mornflake’s new range of mueslis in resealable pouches, available from Waitrose. Our favourite is Notoriously Nutty, with hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and pistachio nuts with mixed seeds, apple and coconut, though there is also Favourite Fruit and Nut, the sweeter Deliciously Date, Fig and Apple, or Fabulously Fruity, £2.99 per 750g bag.
