Well hello there. My name is Viv (well, it's not really), and, like a lot of people, I'm ever so slightly neurotic... I have panic attacks and anxiety (ranging from mild to pretty intense), on and off. I also have an amazing and quite high-profile job, so I'm choosing to remain anonymous on here. Not because I'm ashamed of the aforementioned neuroses, but because I don't want to be googled and for my colleagues to read bizarre posts about me breathing into a paper bag and popping lorazepam. I've worked for bookshops, mixed arts festivals and charities, and have met (and still meet!) a lot of famous, fetching and fantabulous people for my job. (See, anxiety doesn't need to stop you being AWESOME and doing what you want to do) Here's hoping you'll find some helpful hints and tips on here which will help you tackle the evil panic heebiejeebs... PS. I'm an Australian, but I live in the UK, and have adopted tea-drinking, pubs, Wodehouse, and a Welsh man.

Put on your pearls, girls...

One for the laydees...

People with ovaries, I want to talk to you. Hear me now, for I want to talk to you about the MIGHTY power of the humble cosmetic in the war against anxiety and down-in-the-dumpedness. Don't get me wrong. You were all born with beautiful faces, and they look fan-bloody-tastic unadorned and unkempt. I love wild, patchy eyebrows, shiny non-mascara eyelashes and rosy cheeks, and there is nothing more liberating than showing your naked face to the world.

BUT. Maybe you've been crying. Maybe you've been up all night fighting the night terrors, or ruminating on your inability to get in a lift. Maybe you woke up with the horrible cheer-sucking dread, and thought you couldn't face the day.

Gentle women, days like these aren't 'nude look' days. On days like these, the nude look will be more like blotchy, puffy, engorged toad-face-look. On days like these, you need RED LIPSTICK.

(I like MAC's amazingly matte and forties Ruby Woo and Russian Red)

Look at Lucille - she knows the power of a good red lippy...

Lashings of black mascara (maybe waterproof if you're still feeling wobbly), some powder, and a spritz of your most expensive perfume later, and you will feel a million miles better - I promise.

And if not, at least you will be the hottest, most AWESOME, most mysterious looking troubled lady since Marilyn (evidence you can be bad, sad, and still very, very hot).
