The guide Q: I’ve just about got to grips with the idea of cooking a full Christmas lunch, but the thought of making a traditional pud is a culinary step too far. Who does a good off-the-shelf version? A: I highly recommend the Waitrose richly fruited Christmas pudding (£5). Made with brandy, cherries, cream and almonds, along with a generous dash of sherry. Or try the 8 Month Mature Vintage Christmas Pudding (£12) from M&S. Sumptuous and boozy, it’s perfect for sending your guests into a post-lunch snooze. If you want a real show-stopper try M&S’s Christmas pudding chocolate dessert (£10). With impressive layers of chocolate mousse, it will look like you’ve slaved over it for hours.

Dr. Hauschka at Panacea Health & Beauty £23

Psst...

We Love

Q: Christmas events mean lots of make-up and late nights. Can you suggest a cleanser for sensitive skin that will leave my face feeling soft and clean? It must also be quick and easy to use. A: My personal favourite is Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk, stocked at Panacea Health & Beauty. Made with jojoba and almond milk, it’s gentle enough to use all over your face, including the eye area. Simply use a cotton pad and sweep over your peepers to prevent panda eyes.

Ask me anything Do you have a Christmas query? Our advice column will help you navigate festive challenges. From beauty to food and beyond, we’ve got it covered…

Q: I’m jetting off after the Christmas festivities for a wellearned break with my husband. Where’s a convenient place to change money at intu before we escape to the sun? A: You’re in luck: head to the Lower Mall and you’ll find Eurochange, they’re foreign exchange experts and offer zerocommission rates on loads of different currencies. So hot-foot it over there before you take off.

Q: I love shopping, but it’s hard dragging the kids with me. Is there anywhere I can take them to avoid tears and tantrums while I’m rail-hopping? A: Christmas shopping can be stressful for mums and their children, so why don’t you take your little ones to Gymboree for a whole host of classes, including art, music and play-and-learn sessions. Or sign up to intu Watford’s exclusive Kids Club at intu.co.uk/watford/families/ kids-club to join in all the holiday activities including treasure hunts and face painting. Who said shopping wasn’t fun?

Q: My hair’s in desperate need of a cut but I’m anxious about getting the chop before all the Christmas parties. If I don’t like my look, there’s no time to grow it out! A: For a stunning cut, I’d head to Regis on Queens Road. They’re masters at creating sleek looks with subtle colour enhancements – and don’t worry, they won’t give you a quirky ‘do’.
