Welcome

…to The Joy Factor, a wry look at some sources of joy in everyday life. It's a random mix – from an afternoon at the movies to finding a pair of Louboutins in the local charity shop – all timed, costed and marked out of 10. Some favourite Joy Spots will be signposted along the way. There will be no fashion tips, makeup demonstrations or pouting, but hopefully some mild laughter and the occasional chuckle.   jill@thejoyfactor.co.uk
