Preparing to have her own blood injected into her face, it was simply another day on the job for TV presenter Anna Richardson.

Her recent work has earned her a reputation for bein louis vuitton g the bravest woman on television.

For The Sex Education Show she stood up in front of a room of teenagers to talk about contraception, and in Supersize vs Superskinny, she lived off jars of baby food to investigate celebrity fad diets.

This week Anna, 42, is back on our screens in Channel 4’s H louis vuitton ow Not to Get Old, road testing the latest cosmetic procedures and non surgical treatments to investigate whether they really do help to turn the clock back.

Researching the show, Anna was shocked to discover that we apparently spend more time choosing a pair of jeans than we do a cosmetic surgeon.

She says: “I tell you what the treatments are really like and whether they are worth it. To an extent, the industry is open to abuse, questionable practices and promises that don’t deliver.

“We’re so obsessed with youth and looking our best, we don’t think about costs in terms of health and pain as well as on our pockets.

“We can’t turn for seeing billboard ads of young, beautiful women. We are all starting to feel the pressure. That’s why it’s a billion pound industry.”

Anna, who started her career as a researcher on The Big Breakfast before turning her hand to presenting, believes it’s not just women who feel they have to stay looking young men do too.

According to figures from The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, BAAPS, earlier this year, there was a double digit rise in the number of anti ageing procedures, despite the recession.

Brow lifts soared by 17%, face lifts saw an increase of 14% and eyelid surgery rose by 13% rise in 2012.

Before agreeing to take part in the show, she had one condition that all the treatments had to be safe.

Anna explains: “I don’t like needles, but at the same time I see it as my duty to try things and report back.

“I knew some of the treatments would hurt a bit and I didn’t know what the results would be, but I’m 43 in a couple of months so I thought ‘bring it on’.”

Anna admits she was excited to have the Platelet rich Plasma Facial more commonly known as the “vampire facial” after reading all the hype.

Popular with celebrities such as K louis vuitton im Kardashian, it claims to smooth wrinkles and banish the bags under your eyes.

It involves taking blood from your arm, separating the layer that’s filled with platelets and then injecting it through tiny needles into your face.

Each episodes focuses on hosts Wallner and Matisic testing one cookbook. They make several recipes, usually consisting a full meal from appetizer to dessert (except for speciality cookbooks such as a dessert cookbook) for a special guest chef (and occasionally, non chefs) while explicitly following the book’s recipes instru lou louis vuitton is vuitton ctions. The meal is prepared within a strict time limit which ends when the guest chef arrives on set louis vuitton , and is determined by the preparation/cooking time listed in the cookbook. At the end of the program, each host will declare the book a “Buy” or a “Pass” depending on whether they feel the book has delivered in its promise and purpose based both on the cook day experience and their individual pre testing of the cookbook. If both hosts give the book a “Buy”, the cookbook will earn the “A Stamp of Approval”.Throughout each episode, Wallner Matisic also perform product testings of several kitchen gadgets and/or food items to provide a side by side comparison between different brands, make or variety, similar to how they tested products on their previous sho louis vuitton w, The Shopping Bags. These product tests usually pertain to ingredients or tools they are using in that episode.

Everyone knows Oprah Winfrey loves BFFs.

It safe to say that friendship helped Vancouver Anna Wallner and Kristina Matisic nail a sweet spot on Oprah OWN (network) launch last month. The network signed on their TV series, Anna and Kristina Grocery Bag, for two years.

In the show, they test cookbooks and kitchen products, and sometimes lose decorum in gut splitting laughter, the stuff of well aged friendships. On the other hand, friendship is a shortcut to irritation and impatience and they don hold back on that, either, as they try to cook a multi course meal for a chef who judge their work.

The two met as journalists at louis vuitton Global TV in the mid 1990s and left their plum jobs about 10 years ago to be their own bosses. (They created the precursor to Anna and Kristina Grocery Bag called The Shopping Bags.) So sure, they mad made for camera good looks but spirited sass and a very real relationship are what make the show work.

OWN approached them, they say. been watching the show and were interested in acquiring it, say louis vuitton s Wallner. we finally came to an agreement, we were thrilled and excited to be part of it. After confirming the deal, the pair high fived, hugged and went back to make up and the kitchen to shoot another episode. as well as on W Network in Canada.

was obviously a significant deal for us, says Wallner. part of the launch brings with it publicity and cache. Regarding the financials, Wallner says, can say we are in 35 countries around the world and the OWN deal was certainly a good one. It in the klutzy Julia Child moments and their chutzpah in taking on challenging menus and serving the results to the saaviest of chefs, local and international. Sometimes, chefs are impressed, sometimes, they speechless in trying not to dis their cooking.

dropped a chicken last night, says Wallner, channelling Child and agreeing that their kitchen is a no pro zone.

Wallner Type A personality meets Matisic Type C and it makes for good chemistry. They nice but not too too.

Says Matisic: say Anna definitely a big picture person, more business minded than I. When she commits to something, she wants to do it the best possible way, not the easy road I might like. She going to do it right. And on a personal note, she very loyal. she made up her mind, she made up her mind. She also very funny and the most trustworthy person I know on the planet. try to relax and make do with what we have. I used to stop cooking, run all over town for exactly the right type of carrot. I much more adaptable now.

And Kristina? little more effort can makes things look a lot better, taste a lot better and the finishing touches. Now I see how they do pay off. Like the parsley on top. Anna known for that. When Matisic began the show, her fridge contained a jar of pickles and her cupboard, a can of soup. Wallner thought she was a good cook. has been incredibly humbling. I was operating in a very, very, very narrow zone, she says.

They tackled recipes from Thomas Keller and Alain Ducasse (chart toppers in the culinary world) but their bete noir is pastry. hate making pastry dough, says Matisic.

gotta say, pastry eludes us, says Wallner.

So far, so has Oprah. They once were invited on her show but they were bumped by another guest. still hoping to meet her, they say.
