The lowdown I’ve always wanted to try Pilates, so I am keen to talk to Jaime Lake O’Dea from TSC On Demand. TSC’s online workouts target different parts of the body and come with quirky names such as Core Control, The Major League, Bend ’n’ Stretch and Body Got Back … & Biceps.

As I play tennis, I’m muscle-dominant on my right side, so Jaime encourages me to try one or two workout sessions after my morning walk. I try Core Control first and like the fact that the workout features a hard-core version interspersed with gentler options for the faint-hearted. It is full-on – intensive leg raises combined with sit-ups – and all very results-driven.

Downtime Forty minutes for two sessions: Core Control and Body Got Back … & Biceps.

Results I need to commit to sessions every second day to help shape my body.

An oldie but a perennial goodie, Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm (now in Fuller Fig, davidjones.com, $37) is one of my all-time-favourite beauty inventions. Application is a no-brainer and this super-wearable shade also moisturises lips.

How can I make my nails grow faster?
Normal nail growth is two to three millimetres a month for those aged between three and 40. After this, growth slows to around one millimetre each month. To ensure healthy nails, eat a well-balanced diet and apply a topical oil-based product such as Mavala Mavaderma (mavala.com.au, $22).
