There has been a breakthrough when it comes to women’s rights in India – they will finally be allowed to work as makeup artists after almost 60 years of exclusion. Females were previously banned from taking on the role of makeup artist in India – they were however allowed to work as hairstylists on film sets. If women tried to apply make-up on film sets they were sometimes threatened or even assaulted says this article by the Huffington Post.


A Courthouse success story has been reported by the Mail Online here. Tracie Riley, 49, has lost an incredible 13st in less than a year after following the Alevere diet at Courthouse Clinics in Wilmslow. Tracie struggled with her weight and it left her desperate, isolated and on the brink of suicide but she is now back on her feet and looking better than ever. The Alevere diet uses protein-based meal replacements before phasing normal food back in and is combined with skin-tightening treatments so that clients, who lose weight rapidly, are not left looking saggy.
