Oh, you silly sausage.
You blocked out someone’s constant hints/shouts of ‘I WOULD LIKE EVERYTHING FROM FENTY BEAUTY FOR CHRISTMAS, PLEASE’, left present-buying to the last minute, and are now desperately trying to figure out what Fenty Beauty even is, let alone how the hell you can get your hands on it.

Christmas is a time to love, give and share – if the Hallmark edition is to be believed.
Families gather, traditions are upheld and the whole country gets a little bit giddy from a John Lewis advert.
But what if you don’t have any family? Or your family is missing people that you were close to?
This is when Christmas can be a struggle full of apprehension, sadness and frustration.
I’ve always dreaded Christmas. As a child I hated the questions of ‘what are you doing for Christmas?’ and ‘how was your Christmas?’ I still do.

If you thought you were obsessed with all things Lego, you’ve just been trumped.
A Lego-obsessed family have built an 8ft-tall Victorian dollhouse made of 450,000 bricks in their living room.
It’s the biggest sculpture Mike Addis, 59, and Catherine Weightman, 54, have ever built in their family home in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, over the last 25 years.
Among their creations, which they put together every Christmas, are Christmas-themed Daleks, a polar bear, Olympic 2012 mascots, angels and a cathedral.
Puts your Lego making skills to shame.

Working out can make you feel great.
You get a buzz when you lift a heavier weight or shave off a few seconds from your PB and sometimes it just feels, particularly when you’ve just started training, as if your progress will never stop.
When your body fat is dropping and you’re seeing results, it’s a wonderful feeling.
On social media, gym goers constantly post about how great a workout was or how brilliant it’s made them feel. But what happens when it all goes wrong?

Last night, hundreds of teenagers and women descended on White Hall as part of the #FreePeriods protest.
Dressed in red and holding banners any art college would be proud of, gangs of gal pals rocked up to demand that girls who receive free school meals also be given free sanitary products.
If parliament listens, that’s 208,000 girls who’ll be eligible for free tampons and towels. And if that sounds like a lot, it is; according to Plan International UK, 1 in 10 girls can’t afford to buy menstrual products.
We’re talking about a huge number of young women who are having to stuff their knickers with socks or… Read the full story

Adidas are no strangers to celebrity campaigns.
Selena Gomez had her own collection back in 2015. Karlie Kloss has been the face of Stella McCartney’s line for ages. Gareth Bale was the poster boy for Adidas Football.
But the brand has stepped up its influencer game of its latest ad.
Because they’ve got every famous person ever to launch their new ‘Calling All Creators’ campaign.
Adidas prides itself on being driven by creatives – artists, designers, musicians, and so they’ve put together an all-star cast which includes a load of them and some of the world’s best sportspeople.
Just look at the mad line-up:
James Harden, Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, Von Miller, Pharrell Williams, Kris Bryant, Carlos Correa, Candace Parker, DeAndre Hopkins, Pusha T, Damian Lillard, Karlie Kloss, David Beckham, Garbiñe Muguruza, Alexander Wang, Aaron Rodgers, PK Subban, Paige Tapp, Chiney Ogwumike, Brandon Ingram, Jeremy Lin, Kristaps Porzingis, Derrick Rose, Tracy McGrady, and Lindsey Horan.

It’s Christmas so hangovers are pretty much inevitable.
But rather than silently suffering or ordering every greasy thing in sight, is there a way we can eliminate a hangover quicker than dialing Dominos?
Priya Tew, a dietitian, tells Metro.co.uk that there are many ways to alleviate a hangover.
‘The key nutrients you need the most are B1, water and potassium,’ she explains.
‘When you drink alcohol your blood sugars lower, part of the hangover can be due to these low blood sugars.
‘Eating foods that bring your blood sugars back up and keep them stable will therefore help.
So what foods can we scoff to get us back to a semi-normal… Read the full story

If you think you’re well-travelled, you may be in for a surprise.
A globetrotting dog has racked up more than 5,600 miles and seen most of the US – with only eye.
After a play fight with a dog who left her eye bleeding and infected, Abby had emergency surgery to remove her right eye at two years old.
The tiny Maltese pooch, who weighs just 5lbs, refuses to let her disability hold her back.
Instead, she enjoys a life of luxury, lying in the lap of doting owner 60-year-old April Smith.
April and her husband of 32 years, Larry, 61, who are retired, spend their days living on a boat.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without it ending in a Monopoly row.
The game ending with the board thrown off the table is as much of a tradition as turkey and cranberry sauce.
But if you’re fed up of constantly losing, we have a few tips and tricks to get you to reigning champion.
How you ask? Well, the UK’s reining Monopoly champion is here to help.

Christmas is an interesting time if you’re a Muslim. If you celebrate it, you’re usually met with surprise or disdain but if you don’t, you’re accused of not integrating.
Not so much has been made of how Muslims volunteer and help vulnerable people in society during the festive period.
Amidst rampant Islamophobia this year and terror attacks, it’s unsurprising that the good contributions by Muslims are overshadowed.
The hashtag has since gone viral, celebrating the charitable work Muslim charities… Read the full story
If you haven’t decided which jumper you’re going to wear on Christmas Day, don’t worry because we’ve got you sorted.
Because nothing screams Christmas more than turkey breasts.
The festive limited-edition jumper is the brainchild of Nina Beyers, an art director who runs clothing store Nina’s Nips.
Don’t feel too guilty if you want to splash out on more than one – 100% of the proceeds will go to CoppaFeel!, a breast cancer charity that encourages women to get to know their boobs.

In the world of beauty, false lashes are pretty bloody intimidating.
They instill more fear than the prospect of liquid eyeliner, more dread than needing to take a sip of tea immediately after applying matte lipstick, more trepidation than the application of highlighter that doesn’t make you look like an oily mess.
Well, for me they do, anyway. I’ve never figured out false lashes, and I find the concept of fiddling around with glue right next to my eyes mildly horrifying, so I never learned.
I’ve tried a few times, but I can’t quite seem to nail it. I’ve read every tip and watched every tutorial, and yet each time I’ve… Read the full story
Battersea Dogs and Cats home has released a series of photographs of dogs to raise awareness of stray pets looking for a new home.
As part of the charity’s In From The Cold campaign, photographer Jack Taylor has showcased some of the pooches who’ve been patiently waiting at the animal shelter for nearly 100 days.
Louise, an eight-year-old Border Terrier who has been at Battersea for 94 days while a four-year-old Saluki called Thelma has been at the home for 94 days.

Some people actively avoid their neighbours. From parking and mess to noise, it’s not hard to see why you wouldn’t want to engage in small talk.
But not this Floridian resident.
Why you ask? Because this neighbour has a manatee mailbox.
And that’s not all.
The manatee gets dressed up throughout the year for special occasions including Halloween and Christmas, when the manatee dons a Santa costume.
‘My neighbour has this manatee mailbox he dresses up throughout the year and I’m kind of obsessed with it,’ Marley, a University of Central Florida student, said on Twitter.
