Thinning Lips and Barcode Lines

 & WowOnWednesday

Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton wearing Atomic Cherry lipstick by Lisa Eldridge as she explains ways of dealing with thinning lips and barcode lines around the mouth.

Dear friends. I was asked recently what we can do about thinning lips, something which happens as we age.  I'm also troubled by "barcode lines," those lines  above the top lip. They're usually associated with smokers but we all have them to some extent. I'm going to explain a few ways of camouflaging these issues, and what's available if you decide to get professional treatment.

Have We Reached Peak Wild Flower?

 & #WowOnWednesday

Gail Hanlon visits the Superbloom display at the Tower of London

Dear friends. A few years ago, municipal flower beds, certainly in the UK, were filled with bedding plants in straight lines. Wild flowers were classed as weeds. But ever since the 2012 London Olympics, the trend has swung round to wild flowers, sown with abandon. 

The Tower of London has embraced the trend and this year's Superbloom event has encouraged thousands of people to meander along the moat, filled not with water but with a mix  of annual and perennial wild flowers.
