What do we think of the Gucci hairy shoes? I bought a pair, and hon­estly, they’re worth buy­ing for the com­ments alone! Women adore them and men ab­hor them. Be­ing an old lady now, I’m just de­lighted that I found a pair of comfy flat shoes that I can walk in, that are some­what stylish!

An­other thing I’m se­ri­ously lov­ing since slip­ping into mid­dle-age mad­ness is pow­er­ful, re­sults-driven skin­care.

El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Pre­vage City Smart, right, €70, is now a must in my regime. Five years in the mak­ing, this first-of-it­skind skin shield isn’t just about sun pro­tec­tion. It’s an ev­ery­day, all-year-round shield from UV rays, pol­lu­tion and smoke — all of which age the skin.

Think of it like a skin su­per­hero that catches pol­lu­tion par­ti­cles and stops them pen­e­trat­ing into pores. Kapow! Zap! Bang!

So ba­si­cally, when you wash your face af­ter us­ing this, you’re wash­ing the pol­lu­tion away, too!

Pop it on as the last step in your skin­care rou­tine. It’s tinted, so, for days on the down-low, I wear it on its own a lot. Al­though, when I wear it un­der make-up, when I’m feel­ing all fancy pants and fancy shoes, it acts like a skin cor­rec­tor, as it evens out my skin­tone as well.
