It’s no secret that actress Pauline Quirke has struggled with her fluctuating weight over the years, famously shedding a jaw-dropping eight stone, before the pounds crept back on.

to her 60th birthday, Pauline has vowed to overcome her demons once and 
for all – and lose up to four stone to celebrate her milestone year.

An insider close to the star tells Woman, ‘It’s Pauline’s big birthday soon and it’s got her thinking. She’s told family and friends she’s given herself a new benchmark – by summer next year, she’s going to have lost at least four stone.’

It’s no secret that actress Pauline Quirke has struggled with her fluctuating weight over the years, famously shedding a jaw-dropping eight stone, before the pounds crept back on.

However, now on the countdown 
to her 60th birthday, Pauline has vowed to overcome her demons once and 
for all – and lose up to four stone to celebrate her milestone year.

An insider close to the star tells Woman, ‘It’s Pauline’s big birthday soon and it’s got her thinking. She’s told family and friends she’s given herself a new benchmark – by summer next year, she’s going to have lost at least four stone.’

PAULINE’S PROMISE

According to pals, Pauline, 58, is currently struggling to maintain her size-18 figure and has fallen into a rut of eating fast food on the go due to a hectic schedule. But with the help of a strict new health plan, she aims to slim to a size 14-16.

Our source continues, ‘Pauline has told friends that she’s determined. She knows it won’t be easy, but she wants to show everyone she’s capable of losing big.

‘She’s explained how she’s giving herself a sensible 18-month plan to 
meet her goal. She knows that the weight loss won’t happen overnight, but is determined not to fall off the wagon.’

DIET CHANGES

And so it begins… BOAF Christmas special xxxx

Our insider reveals, ‘As she approaches the summer, Pauline’s said she’s going 
to eat more salad and fish and there will be no white pasta, rice and bread as a rule. Instead, she’ll eat wholemeal and 
healthy alternatives.’

Woman understands that Pauline is also cutting out refined sugars and, most importantly, taking things slow, as she knows from experience that losing weight super quickly just doesn’t work in the 
long run.

Our source adds, ‘In Pauline’s opinion, fad diets are designed to make you fail and that’s not an option for her. This time she’s determined not to talk herself out of her plan to eat simple, 
healthy and good food.’

ACTION PLAN

The star’s new health regime will see her swapping her current meals for more nutritious food options.

Our insider reveals, ‘Pauline knows crash diets don’t work. She 
is going to take it week by week, and not use the word diet or step on the scales. Instead, she intends to go by 
how she and her clothes feel.’

She also plans to up her workouts and has described swimming as her ‘ideal exercise’, despite being scared of going to her local swimming pool.

LASTING MOTIVATION

Looking forward to watching our birds of a feather Christmas special on Monday 18th December at 9pm and boxing night at 10 pm on @itv @charlie_quirke @samuel_james @emilyatackofficial hope you enjoy very proud @imkarllucas

Of course, a big part of Pauline’s motivation is that she’s only too aware of how her current weight could affect her health.

Having suffered from some 
serious joint problems, including osteoarthritis, Pauline also had 
to have a hip replacement aged 
just 49 – something she has been reminded of in recent months.

Our insider explains, ‘Pauline knows she has serious health risks 
to consider. She’s at a high risk of developing type-2 diabetes and 
she knows that carrying extra 
weight could have a big impact 
on her hips in the future.

‘She’s already undergone 
extensive surgery on her hip in the past and her joints are now under more pressure than they should be, 
so time really is of the essence.’

SUPPORT NETWORK

With a great bunch of people around her, including husband Steve Sheen, the mum-of-two knows she will be encouraged every step of the way.

Our insider says, ‘Pauline’s husband, kids and the rest of her family are always telling her how beautiful and amazing she is, and are all rooting for her and have promised to support her in not giving in.’

On top of that, Pauline is thought to be looking to childhood friend and Birds of a Feather co-star Linda Robson for inspiration after Linda recently dropped two-and-a-half stone.

However, according to friends, 
it’s Pauline’s trademark humour that’ll help her most, through what will inevitably be a tough journey.

‘Pauline always says her humour keeps her going, but she doesn’t want to be described as a “fat, funny woman” any more,’ our source says. ‘Hitting 60 is the start of a brand-new chapter – she is determined to see in her birthday with a new look – what a great way to start a new decade.’

Good luck, Pauline – we know 
you can do it!

Emily in Paris Fans Think Kim Cattrall Will Make an Appearance in Season 3

Published

on

instyle– Fans are speculating a major pop-culture crossover in season 3 of Emily in Paris. After Kim Cattrall infamously turned down the chance to revive her Sex and the City character, Samantha Jones, for the rebootfans couldn’t help but wonder if Jones could make an appearance in the next season of the cult-favorite Netflix show.

If you’re watching And Just Like That … (and even if you’re not), you know that Cattrall’s character is supposedly off working her public relationships magic in London, England, just a quick trip from Emily (Lily Collins) and her booming marketing firm, Savoir.

Fans noticed major parallels between the characters, from their location to their sex positivity to their career in communications. Plus, both series were created by big-time Hollywood producer Darren Star — with SATC costume designer Patricia Field now responsible for Emily’s kitschy, Parisian looks — making a collab that much more believable.

One Twitter user wrote, “Current theory: Samantha has supposedly moved overseas, hence her lack of presence in the new SATC TV series. Then she shows up by total surprise in a crossover episode of EMILY IN PARIS. I would watch Samantha try to tolerate Emily, 100 percent.”

Collins fueled the flames by teasing a possible season 3. The actress posted photographs from her Vogue Hong Kong cover featuring a jet-black shag haircut and dark makeup writing, “Season 3 pivot?? Who’s with me? …” Collins used the same caption when reposting a fan’s Tweet with the magazine images that read, “Emily in Berlin.”

Women Who Work Outside Road-Tested the Season’s Cutest Winter Coats

Published

on

If you’re in the market for a new winter coat, there’s no shortage of options out there. Fuzzy, puffy, water resistant, bright — whatever you want, a quick Google search will surely lead you to something that promises to be top-notch. But will it actually be warm and stand up to the elements? Ehh…that’s not always a guarantee. Some coats photograph well but turn out to be flimsier, breezier, or less precipitation-proof than they look.

This season, though, InStyle.com decided to take some of that risk out of the equation. We wanted honest coat reviews — ones that told us something that wasn’t in the product description. So, we recruited the help of five ‘cold professionals,’ AKA women who work outside as part of their job. We gave them one of the coats we’d been coveting, had them walk around in it for about an hour (while we snapped photos, of course), and then asked them questions to determine its overall rating, which accounts for warmth but also coolness.

Thankfully, this crew didn’t hold back and shared some solid advice for those wondering what jacket is really worth their money this winter.

Skims Isn’t Always Sold Out: These Thermal Leggings Are Available in Practically All Sizes Right Now

Published

on

Of the many fashion and beauty lines that members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have launched over the past few years, Kim Kardashian West’s Skims is undoubtedly one of the family’s biggest hits. Since its debut in 2019, the shapewear and loungewear brand has won rave reviews (and earned a whole lot of money) for its comfortable styles and inclusive sizing, and so it’s no wonder that its products often sell out super quickly. If you’ve been dying to try some items out for yourself but haven’t gotten the chance just yet, we’ve got good news: Skims Cotton Rib Thermal Leggings are available at Nordstrom in so many colors and size options right now.

For anyone not familiar with thermal leggings, they’re the best during winter (or any day when the AC is on too high, if we’re being real). They’re designed to retain your body heat and keep you warm, and the best ones do so while still being light enough to allow your skin to breathe. Skims’ thermal leggings are made with ribbed stretch cotton that hugs close to the body, yet doesn’t feel suffocating.
