Has the Virgin London Marathon inspired you to take up running? If TOWIE's James ‘Arg’ Argent, Cara Kilby and Billi Mucklow complete the course next Sunday, we'll be inspired to ditch the heels and don our trainers for a summer run or two.
The current series may have ended its run but you can't get away from the cast of The Only Way Is Essex. This weekend's Professional Beauty Show was dominated by the TOWIE cast, many of whom had new products to endorse at the London Excel event.
TOWIE is taking to the streets of London! Billi Mucklow and Cara Kilbey, new stars of the hit TV show The Only Way is Essex, will be swapping their stilettos for sneakers and running the 2012 Virgin London Marathon in support of Samaritans.
With the new series of TOWIE set to launch this weekend, spas and salons are still supporting a sales surge in glamorous beauty treatments. Sales of self-tan are up 19% at John Lewis, as ladies seek to get that Essex glow in the winter months.
The Only Way Is Essex and other ultra-glam TV shows are giving beauty salons and spas a boost. New data from Alibaba.com shows demand for eyelash treatments is up 21%, while nail treatments such as acrylics and Shellac are up 41% year-on-year.
A super-comfortable bra, which sold one million units in a week on its release in the US, is launching in Tesco and Bhs. Over 80% of us are wearing the wrong size bra but the New Image Genie Bra promises to end bad posture, chafing and neck pain.
