The size of my handbag collection became clear last weekend when I had to move the numerous boxes containing them into storage. We are lucky enough to be having our loft converted into a bedroom and so I’ve been clearing our attic space. I was amazed to see how many bags I’d accumulated over the years, having hung onto them for my daughters. But now I’ve started eyeing up the selection of appealing new looks on pages 16-17. From this season’s latest trends to carry-all classics, I could easily snap up several. So to distract myself I am looking at paint swatches and carpets for the loft room instead! Face food You’ll be amazed by all the health foods now finding their way into beauty products. See them on page 18. Simply stylish Fancy…

come on inside!

Looking good What a wonderful feature on Anita Harris you had in your 30 July issue. She is one of my favourites. I couldn’t believe she was 77 – she still looks great! I’m so looking forward to seeing her on stage in Cabaret later in the year. Sylvia Foster, Driffield Football mad My husband is a big Liverpool fan so after an amazing season, he bought matching football kits for him and our two girls. Ava-Mae is 18 months old and Layla-Marie is just one week old here. Football isn’t just for the boys and matching outfits aren’t just for the mums! Caroline Hird, Liverpool Comic tales After reading the fabulous article on girls’ comics in the 50s and 60s [2 J uly], I was eager to read more, so I bought Susan Brewer’s The History of…

gardeners’ questions

Q How can I protect border-bound plants from the cold? A Some plants can weather the winter outside, even though they’re not completely hardy, with a little extra help. Cloches, either bell-shaped for individual plants or fleece tunnels for a line of crops, work well. Just remember to anchor them as they can fly off in high winds! QI don’t have space for a compost heap – what else can I do with food waste? A A wormery could be the perfect solution for you. Now, in the cool of autumn, is a good time to set one up. It’s easy to start with a complete wormery kit, which even comes with worms! It will need to go in a sheltered space. Most designs have a tap to drain excess liquid that can…

what you’re wearing

Cindi Novell, 42 Tell us about your look… I like fitted clothes, so a dress with a defined waist is a favourite look. This is Dorothy Perkins. It’s simple, but I love the colour. I’m happy to shop on the high street, but Karen Millen is my absolute favourite! My bag is M&S and my sandals are Karen Millen. I love pretty sandals and have quite a collection! And the best bit of your body? My legs, I reckon. Rebecca Davies, 65 Tell us about your look… I love cropped trousers in summer – it’s my signature look. These are M&S. I usually wear them with a tunic top or a crisp shirt. This top is from White Stuff. I saw it in the sale and loved the print. My bag is Radley and I’ve had my…
