Whether you’re happily married, in a relationship or single, there’s no doubt that you’ve got an arsenal of horrific dating stories.
The account is run by three single girls in their late 20s who are all approaching the dating scene from slightly different perspectives.

Practising yoga comes with all kinds of benefits.
It helps keep you limber and flexible. It’s calming. And, according to numerous studies, it can help to lower depression levels and minimise emotional eating.
Four studies were looked at during a recent American convention, one of which centred around 23 male veterans who took part in a yoga class twice per week for eight weeks.
At the end of the time period, participants with elevated scores of depression found their symptoms had dramatically reduced.
Another study from Alliant International University looked at 52 women aged between 25 and 45. Half did Hatha yoga twice a week for eight weeks while the other half… Read the full story
Emelia Jackon loves flaming hot Cheetos. A lot.
While she was pregnant she was hit with constant cravings for the spicy snack, eating 320 family-sized packs of Cheetos during her pregnancy.
Emelia even jokes that her Cheetos obsession is the reason her son was born with bright red hair.
To celebrate both her pregnancy and her dedication to Cheetos, Emelia decided to do an elegant maternity photoshoot in a bathtub full of the snack.
‘I’ve always loved flaming hot Cheetos ever since I was a little kid,’ the mum explains.
‘I used to steal quarters from my parents money jar just so I could get my Cheeto fix… Read the full story

Many of us find that we spend our days doing repetitive movements, like typing at a computer, working in a factory or on a supermarket check-out, or just playing on our phones.
This can lead to pain in our hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
But what does the pain mean, and how can you treat it?
Both repetitive strain injury (RSI) and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are fairly common – but what are the symptoms of… Read the full story

Post-Weinstein, the fashion industry is being forced to face up to its own imbalances of power.
Mario Testino and Bruce Weber are facing consequences for allegations of sexual harassment. Models are speaking up about predators sitting in the world of fashion. Edie Campbell wrote a powerful letter accusing the industry of abuse.
Now, in answer to concerns over the treatment of models, models at New York Fashion Week will be given private changing areas backstage.
This means they’ll be protected from prying eyes, intrusive photography, and the potential issues raised when you’re a young model naked while someone in power speedily dresses… Read the full story
If you’ve ever been pregnant or even been close friends with a woman on the brink of giving birth, you’ll be fully aware that the time leading up to labour can be a nerve-wracking period for everyone involved.
Of course these nerves are totally normal, not just because of the imminent arrival of a brand new life but because of the unpredictable nature of childbirth itself.5 things you might not know about Trichotillomania

You stroll out of the cubicle, thoroughly wash your hands, and are then presented with two options.
There’s the stash of paper towels ready to rub your hands dry, or the hot hand dryer. Or there’s one of those pull-out fabric hand dryers, if you’re unlucky.
It’s a tricky decision. You want to be environmentally friendly. You also want to avoid germs (so that rules out the fabric option. Blech). You’re fully aware that if it’s a standard hand dryer you’ll only end up wiping your hands on your jeans afterwards, but if it’s one of those fancy Dyson ones, you might actually – shocker – be able to dry… Read the full story

When my consultant told me I had cancer, one of the first things I wanted to know was whether I could still travel.

We might all have been reared on a diet of ‘meat and two veg’, but times are a-changing.
Because apparently, almost a third of the meals we consume in Britain are now meat and fish-free.
According to findings by Kantar Worldpanel, 29% of all dinners eaten across the UK during January were vegetarian or vegan.
Now, obviously, that takes into account the fact that more folk are trying to eat ‘cleaner’ after a heavy festive period – as well as trying out Veganuary.

There’s nothing worse than putting on a new pair of tights, only to pull them up 20 minutes later and find that your fingers have gone straight through.
Ladders and holes are the bain of everyone’s life. No matter how hard you try to nonchalantly pull them off, no one gets away with laddered tights after they’ve left high school.
Which is probably why we should all start investing in Sheerly Genius.
It says that it’s created a ‘rip-proof, snag-proof, life-proof’ pair of tights, made from the same fibres as bulletproof vests.
The ‘ballistic grade fibres’ are apparently up to 10 times stronger than steel and as a result, the company promises… Read the full story
A photographer has set out to document British people and the refugees they invited into their homes.
Aubrey Wade’s exhibition Great British Welcome attempts to put a face to the people involved in the refugee crisis, which has seen more than one million people move across Europe.
Taken in the comfort of people’s own homes the intimate portraits are accompanied by captions exploring how the refugees and hosts have learned to co-habit.
From a young Syrian refugee living in Cambridgeshire to a 72-year-old Eritrean spending political exile in Birmingham, each of the images tells a fascinating and rich story.
Great British Welcome is now on show at a central London outdoor exhibition in partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
United Kingdom.

You might think that London is alone in being the rent rip-off capital of the world.
But over in New York, it looks like they’re experiencing a similar kind of hell – with unbelievably small spaces going for exorbitant prices.
Just take a look at Manhattan’s smallest rental flat, which has just gone on the market for $950 (£685) a month.
Ok, that doesn’t sound too bad – most single people in London are renting bedrooms for around that much.
But it is a lot when you consider that the apartment is just 68sq ft.
Located on New York’s Upper West Side, the self-contained apartment is ‘probably the smallest apartment in Manhattan… Read the full story

If you’re still looking for the perfect Valentine’s present, look no further.
Because Bailey’s has just brought out a new limited edition flavour that’s bang on the whole love heart theme.
Bailey’s Strawberries and Cream is pink, sweet and boozy.
It comes in 750ml or 50ml bottles and can be enjoyed over ice, with milk or can apparently be used in things like strawberries and cream cupcakes (seems a waste, but who are we to judge?).
The bad news, however, is that the flavour is only available across the pond at the moment.
There are many things about working at Facebook we quite like the sound of.
An arcade full of video games, for example. Free snacks, definitely.
But with most of these work perks, we’d have to convince our bosses to make them a reality in our everyday lives… and we reckon that’d be a bit of an uphill battle.
There is one part of Facebook’s working environment that you can – and probably should – take on board, though.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, Facebook has a rule about dating coworkers that’s surprisingly solid.
Here’s the rule: Employees can only ask a coworker out once. If the coworkers says… Read the full story

There is no better feeling than strapping on your snowboard and gliding down a mountain on a winter holiday.
Well, not really gliding in my experience, more stopping and starting and trying to do something that looks more impressive than ‘falling leaf’ all the way down the slope.
But, even with my woeful lack of skill, there’s no doubt in my mind that snowboarding is far better than skiing.Logan Paul makes a valid point about parents monitoring what children are watching online

It’s taken British fashion companies a long time to realise just what a big source of inspiration and creativity Africa can be.
African fashion is as diverse and incredible as the continent is vast.
There’s way more to it than the knock-off Kente print (which has probably been designed in Holland and produced in Asia) and dashikis you see being worn at every UK festival.
So it’s refreshing that ASOS has decided to work with Kenyan fashion bloggers to create a Made In Kenya capsule collection.

Valentine’s Day has always been a good marketing opportunity, but this year brands seem to be determined to get us to hook up.
A Boston restaurant is offering customers the chance to order a $3,000 burger with an engagement ring nestled in the bun.
Doughnut Time is selling doughnut engagement rings.
And now, McDonald’s is giving away an 18k gold ‘Bling Mac’ in time for the big day.
The burger giant is asking for fans to show their love – not for their partner, but for Big Macs – by penning the ‘most creative vows of Big Mac burger love’.
Yep, there’s no purchase necessary – they just want your burger… Read the full story
This is 18-month-old Lucas Warren.
He’s just a cheeky little baby who enjoys wearing bow ties and driving toy cars.
And on Wednesday, he made history: he’s the first child with Down Syndrome to become Gerber’s ‘Spokesbaby of the year’.
Gerber is a baby food and product company which runs a photo competition every year to find their new baby face.
And this year, that baby is Lucas.
He fought off more than 140,000 competitors to be crowned baby of the year and he’ll start appearing on Gerber’s social media channels, as well as their ads throughout the year.
And his parents will get a $50,000… Read the full story

If you’ve been hanging out on Twitter and Instagram recently, you might have noticed something out of the ordinary among all the pics of latte art and cacti: People happily posing while holding up a sanitary pad.
No, it’s not a new selfie trend in the vein of bathleisure.
This is the #PadManChallenge, a social media campaign to promote Pad Man. Pad Man’s a new film about Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who created a machine to make low-cost sanitary pads twenty years ago, designed to answer issues of period poverty across India.
