Caryn Franklin gives three women makeovers for a post 9 to 5 reality

Working mums don’t have time for several costume changes a day. Instead, it’s a case of making the same outfit work for all occasions, from the school gates to the office and then out on that rare night out with the girls.

A recent survey has shown 81% of working women experience frustrating ‘dead time’, (averaging over half an hour a day) where they feel stuck in between work and leisure and are unable to make the most of either. Almost two thirds of women wish they could use this for some much needed ‘me’ time while another fifth wish they could use this dead time to get some more work done in order to fully relax.

Whatever you want to do to transform your dead time, you need the wardrobe and the tools to make the most of it. The BBC Clothes Show’s Caryn Franklin has taken the three lucky winners of a national competition held in association with Vodafone Netbooks and given them just that. Incorporating workwear that fits equally well for that drink after work and allowing their outfits to reflect the increasingly blurring lines between ‘work’ & ‘life ‘

But it’s not just about shoes, bags and make-up – the latest tools to keep you in touch and on the pulse are vital life accessories that can kill off ‘dead-time’ and make a look work through the whole day wherever you are.

Kate Thornton talks pop

Former Smash Hits editor and X-Factor presenter reveals her favourite tunes, her crush on Brandon Flowers and why she loves Big Brother…

Kate Thornton has tracked the ups and downs of the British pop scene for nearly twenty years – she was there at the birth of Britpop and has witnessed and worked with some of our best loved stars of the UK pop industry.

In this video interview, Kate talks about the bands she likes now, the ones who’ve lasted the test of time and how despite critics saying Big Brother should be served an eviction notice, she certainly doesn’t think so…

She also chats about the tumultuous changes seen in the music industry in the last few years, the rise of ‘people power’ through technology, and how we consume the music we love – from queuing every Saturday on the high street for a CD single, to direct downloading, and now to Vodafone’s new unlocked music (DRM Free) service across mobile phone and PC networks, allowing us to download over a million tracks from some of the world’s largest record companies by the end of this summer.
