Those nice people from Hairbond sent me another parcel of goods this week, including items from their new range of products. It doesn’t take much to turn me into a little boy on Christmas morning.
First of all I had a go with their shampoo, which came in a nice squeezy tube. It had a lovely fruity smell, nicely thick and gave a good lather. It can stay.
After that I gave the conditioner a try. Normally if I am taking two bottles into the shower, the other one is vodka. But I digress. I had to read the instructions, apply and leave for a while. It had a nostalgic aroma of passionfruit and orange cordial.
While I waited for it to work I attacked my stubble with my King of Shaves Razor and a healthy dollop of Bluebeard’s Revenge.
After rinsing and drying my hair it felt lighter and had a whole new shine, which drew an admiring glance from the better half. She has since been converted to Hairbond products too, nice one.
Moving on, I needed to tame my fuzzy barnet into some neater spikes, so what could I use? Hair Cream. They also call it design professional hair cream. At first it felt like putty and I had to work it with my hands to make it more pliable. But soon it was doing it’s magic and making my hair stand up like good little soldiers. It didn’t stick in clumps, but more like a looser manageable group.
It too had a fruity aroma, not like the usual chemical smell I have become used to. So am I converted to Hairbond? Yes and yes again. A high quality product for the 21st century, and I can’t wait to see it succeed.

Britain’s Got Talent has been known for many golden moments, Cher Lloyd’s tantrums, Susan Boyle’s amazing voice to name but two. But for sheer visual impact one lady always stood out. Personally I always liked her for making Simon Cowell’s facial expression change from boredom to sheer amazement in less than a minute.
Step forward Miss Fabia Cerra
If you didn’t catch her act the first time it was repeated on youtube endlessly for the viewing public. Now, this is the first time a burlesque performer had appeared on BGT so there was some doubt as to what to expect. Needless to say her performance titillated, stunned, amused and amazed the people of this fair land.
In the wake of the spotlight came huge, and scarily persistent media interest, particularly from The News of the World (you remember them).
But the fifteen minutes of fame tick away fast and she has been working hard. She consolidated her success by moving into new areas of business, such as perfume. A lot of her spare time is spent in charitable works and volunteer projects, such as Abdabs, a youth community theatre project based in Witney. She has even had a letter from Buckingham palace, but more on that later.

I still love the look on Simon Cowell’s face, it was the only time he cracked a smile. Lucky that desk was there, eh, Simon?
So I finally caught up with Fabia for a chat this week.
What drew you towards the Burlesque style of performance?
