Stylish Reese Witherspoon enjoys some me time... as she matches her mini dress with an oversized cardigan

She has three children aged between three months and 13 years at home.

So it is no wonder that Reese Witherspoon was caught apparently making the most of simply strolling down the street on Wednesday.

The actress appeared to be whistling to herself as she walked alone in sunny Los Angeles.

 

Wolf whistle: New mum Reese Witherspoon donned another all black ensemble today

Reese, 36, was once again wearing a dress and black tights ensemble - a look which seems to have become her post-baby uniform.

The This Means War actress sported a blue lace mini dress with a pair of black suede ankle boots which showed off her shapely legs.

The blonde star finished off the look with an oversized black cardigan and an edgy black Valentino Rock Stud leather shopper.

 

Day off: the mum-of-three took some time out for herself today

Reese recently admitted she is finding it a struggle to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.

She told Extra: 'I don't know if I'm bouncing back. I'm slowly crawling back. You know, all of your joints feel wobbly, and your head is sort of confused.'

'You just have to be gentle and patient with yourself and just sort of, you know...slowly get back to your health.'

 

Edgy: Reese opted for a studded Valentino bag to match her dark outfit

The Walk The Line actress, who gave birth to her son Tennessee in September, is excitedly planning their son Tennessee's first Christmas.

'We're going to do fun things,' Reese told E!Online at an event earlier this month.

'We already bought him a cute little Santa's helper outfit and we're excited about that. That's going to be lots of fun!'

Reese has two other children Ava, 12, and Deacon, nine, with former husband Ryan Phillippe.

How much time do you really spend doing your hair, ladies? Answer: Ten days a year!

For any man who has come to dread the words 'I won't be long, I just need to do my hair', it may not come as the greatest of surprises.

The average woman spends ten days a year making sure her hair looks perfect, a poll found.

According to those questioned, ten minutes each day is devoted to washing and conditioning.

They spent another 15 minutes blow drying their hair, and the same again styling their locks into the right shape - 40 minutes in total.

Half admitted they took even longer before a night out. But for some, all that initial effort is just too much. Twelve per cent say they only brush their hair once, in the morning, and don't bother for the rest of the day.

 

 

Five per cent confessed that, on some days, they didn't bother to wash, dry or even brush their hair, tying it up instead.

The survey asked 500 women how long they spent each day washing, drying and styling their locks.

Out of those polled, by professional haircare retailer Fabriah.com, 30 per cent said they gave their hair a conditioning treatment every fortnight.

A spokesman for the site said: 'If you have a good, regular cut then keeping your hair in tip-top condition shouldn't be too difficult.

'A lot of people do wash their hair every day - although most of us can get away with doing it every couple - and using a good shampoo and conditioner is important to keep your hair strong and looking healthy and shiny.

We do all have those days when we simply can't be bothered - and there's nothing wrong with tying your hair up or sticking a hat or scarf around it and giving you and your hair a day off.'

A separate survey earlier this year found that 12 per cent of women have cancelled a date or rearranged an outing with friends because they were having a 'bad hair day'.

Most of the 2,000 women surveyed said they woke up with unruly hair three days each week - the equivalent of 26 years in an average lifetime

No carbs at night, Botox and Chanel lipgloss: Real Housewives star Lisa Vanderpump, 52, reveals her age-defying secrets

She was pictured looking trim and toned in red-hot two-piece bikini this summer, and now Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has revealed her age-defying secrets.

To maintain her figure the 52-year-old, mother-of-two says that exercise is essential and she always avoids carbs at night.

On the beauty front she gets a combination of Botox and filler treatments, and accentuates her natural features with a dash of pink Chanel lip gloss and a touch of mascara.

Beauty secrets: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has revealed that exercise, Botox and subtle make-up help her to stay looking good at 52

The 5ft 5in restauranteur told Style Goes Strong: ‘The hardest thing when you get older is keeping your weight down.'

But she says that she finds dieting impossible because she is 'passionate about eating’.

 

 

'I'm not one of those women who says, 'I'll have a carrot or the veggie plate.' I really do eat. I sample my own food,' she explains.

'I love to live and experience the whole food and wine experience.'

The TV personality, who was born and raised in London but lived in Monte Carlo before moving to California, says that she might have one or two glasses of wine in a night, but never drinks too much.

And the next day she will hit the gym, and take to the treadmill to burn off excess calories.

'I think the key over 40 is exercise regularly. You need to step it up with exercise at that age,' she says.

'I'm not one of those women who says, 'I'll have a carrot or the veggie plate' I really do eat'

She insists that unlike some of her Real Housewives co-stars, she hasn't had any major cosmetic surgery.

Instead she gets regular Botox and filler treatments and uses retinol acid to exfoliate the skin.

Cosmetic surgery aside, her beauty regime is also low maintenance and even on television she does her own hair and make-up. She jokes that there are times when she sees herself on screen and isn't happy with her appearance.

'I look at 'The Real Housewives' and think, 'My God, my hair is a mess.' But hair can't always be my priority... I'm a business woman and restaurant owner, so I'm busy.'

Getting older, she says that it's important not to overdo it with make-up.

She advises: 'I think if you go for a little something on your eyelashes and a little gloss on your mouth then you're good to go.'

To get the perfect lip colour, Ms Vanderpump - who has been married to Kenneth Todd for 30 years - mixes Chanel 11 with a pinker one called Chanel 02 and uses a nude lip liner.

While the Chanel glosses cost more than $25 each, she insists that you 'really do get what you pay for'.

Ms Vanderpump is set to star in a new docu-series titled Vanderpump Rules, which focuses on her restaurant Sur in West Hollywood.
