This week we test: sunscreen spray

Going to the beach is always fun, but the pain of sunburn is not. Spray sunscreens are as effective as creams, but easier to apply - just remember, you should still rub the product in.

Farrow eyewear strays far from the straight and narrow

Linda Farrow produces some of the wackiest sunglasses - such as smiley faces with crucifix eyes that the wearer can barely peek through. Then again, fashion statements are not necessarily meant to be practical.

Thrills and spills, but mostly chills

Holidays don't have to mean rest and relaxation on the beach. Many people prefer an action-packed winter holiday. To these hardy souls, the call of the ice and snow cannot be ignored. They'll take snowshoes over flip-flops any day. And while schussing on a pair of alpine skis is one way to have an exhilarating winter holiday, there are plenty of others.

Dandy & Dapper

I've just started shaving my head (yup, losing hair) and realised while on a junk the other day that I need to protect that part of myself from the sun now, too. What on earth do I use?

Hipsters embrace their dark side with new trend for wearing shades at night

A micro trend that's been brewing recently on the party scene is local hipsters' love of shades. Some can't live without them - even after sunset.

On style, she rules

Those high-waist short-shorts with buttons up both sides are so cute. My old pair from the 1990s is worn out but I haven't been able to find a replacement. Does anyone make them any more?
