Bag Ladies Weighty, buff, buckled fit may sound like we're describing the Marlboro Man, but in fact, they're our priorities when handbag shopping this season.

Top of the wish-list are any of Chloe's autumnal offerings. They're heavyduty fabulous, and come with that all-important padlock which raises the owner to the fashion savvy echelons of Kate Moss. True, there may be a choice between eating/heating for a month as prices start around the 700 mark, but as we all knowf no pain, no gain.

Counter Productive Fans of Origins' heavenly cosmetics, skincare and lifestyle products will certainly be giving something back to the community if they go on a big spree on Wednesday, 14 September. This is Origins' 10th birthday, and to mark the event, the brand is donating 100% of all sales generated on its counters in Arnott's and House of Fraser, Dundrum, to Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin. A seriously applaudable move. We suggest you stock up on any of the 'Ginger' range, its Peace of Mind balms, Peace of Mind skin savers, Clean Sheets scented candles and seriously effective salt scrub.

Boys to Men "Everybody f Rock your bodyf" Okay, you may now officially be too old to wave luminous wands, or wear glittery deely boppers. . . Especially on the Sabbath day, but Sunday, 23 October is a chance to re-live the brilliance that was the Backstreet Boys as they play in The Point. Yes, they all grow up so fastf and yes, they're all probably out, or married, or bothf but a chance to sing 'Quit Playing Games' with Nick, Brian, Howie, AJ and Kevin is just too good to miss. Tickets on sale now.

Phat Club If the bikini diet never quite got underway this summer, all's not lost. Unislim launches its latest plan . . . The Low GI Bodyfat Challenge . . . this month, which is guaranteed to knock you into shape. Sign on for a six-week session and in addition to a healthy eating plan to shift inches as well as pounds, you also get goals to work towards every week, admission to weekly classes and a free bodyfat monitor to assess the damage . . . and thus the rewards . . . at home. Priced at 50 for the full course, details of your nearest Unislim meeting can be found at www. unislim. com or tel: 1850 60 30 20.

Flexible Friends You've been putting it off for years, but it looks like you're running out of excusesf. The world has gone yoga mad, and with the opening of The Yoga Room on Merrion Road, Dublin 4 it's time to get with the programme. Offering 700 square foot of studio space, there will be over 30 classes a week . . . from popular types like Ashtanga and the very gentle Hatha yoga to Pilates, post-natal and, a first in Ireland, Vinyasa Flow yoga . . . a more challenging, physical variant that changes session by session.

Opening on 12 September, The Yoga Room will offer introductory courses as well as cool clothes for adults and (wait for it) 'yoginis'. For more information, call 01-219 6666 or check www. yoga. ie.
