The Romans were a pretty clever bunch, what with inventing the calendar, central heating, concrete, roads and civic society. It is possible that they also pre-figured the advent of Twitter. In yesterday's i, among the 10 best self-help books we featured was a collection of the thoughts of Marcus Aurelius, who, as well as his day job as Roman Emperor, was a devoted student of philosophy. Some of the pieces of knowledge he bequeathed were more than 140 characters long, but it is pretty remarkable that his Meditations, written when he was waging war in central Europe AD170, should still pack a punch almost 2,000 years later. Not only was Marcus Aurelius the Alain de Botton of his day, he's a best-seller today; Bill Clinton, a man noted for his his interest in matters spiritual, pronounced it his favourite book, and it's there in the best-sellers chart.

Lip balm does not usually register high on the beauty thrill scale. For tweens not yet of an age for class-A cosmetics, its permutations in flavour are engrossing stuff. But once you've experienced the hit of proper lipstick and the instant transformation of full-on colour, barely there balms get relegated to non-make-up status – a functional bit of kit, but hardly pulse-quickening.
