Airbnb is great – aside from the odd weirdos (shout out to the Swedish girls who left a whole pizza in my wardrobe) it tends to be a pretty great experience.
Some of us just aren’t into the stuffiness of hotels, and like the freedom of staying in a home from home.
Whether you stay in someone’s spare room and get all the local info off them, or rent their whole house and enjoy 100% freedom, it’s a bloomin’ great way to immerse yourself in a new city.
The only problem is that a lot of the rentals operate with a ‘Strict’… Read the full story

More and more of us are seeking out cruelty-free beauty, whether we’re fully fledged vegans or not.
And in response to the growing demand for plant-based products, Superdrug has just launched The Little Vegan Pop Up Shop in Shoreditch’s Boxpark.
Superdrug already has a no animal testing policy on their own-brand products but it’s gone one further with this little store dedicated to selling exclusively vegan products.
It opened on Tuesday and will be at Boxpark for three months, as part of a pilot to showcase the company’s cruelty-free range.
‘When you’re shopping for anything vegan, you defs have to spend twice the time browsing,’ Superdrug says on its blog.
You work in an open plan office that starts to smell like microwave food by midday. Sometimes you’re met with a delightful aromatic curry, other times, pure bile.
And then a waft of sunshine, meadows and spices comes through. It’s a colleague that you don’t normally talk to but he smells like a Greek god and you hesitate to tell him.
What if he thinks you’re being too forward? What if the office judges you?
After all, no one wants to be thought of as inappropriate, in front of an office full of prying eyes and ears (even… Read the full story

Snapping into holiday mode quickly can be tricky and just when you’re feeling a little more relaxed it’s usually time to get packing again.
So if you’ve only got a few days to spare, why not explore the wonder of Disneyland® Paris?
While everyone knows its magical allure for children, few realise how much it can be for grown-ups too.
Think first class designer shopping, spas, luxury hotels, fine dining, pulse-racing rides and plenty of nostalgia over your favourite childhood characters. What could be better?
Plus, it is only a… Read the full story

It wouldn’t be Easter without hot cross buns right? Or at least that’s how things roll at my house.How to make vegan lemon shortbread biscuits
Traditional hot cross bun recipes are usually enriched with milk, butter or eggs and sometimes with all three. In this vegan hot cross bun recipe I’ve used oat milk, sunflower oil and apple purée instead – making them suitable for anyone following a plant based diet.
These are absolutely delicious served with (non-dairy) butter when warm just out of the oven.

Love a Baileys? Well, you’re in luck, because a popup cafe completely dedicated to the creamy alcoholic drink is coming to London.
The Vegan Treat Shop by Baileys Almande will be popping up in Soho Square this Friday, 23 March, from 1pm to 7pm.
The cafe will be serving up its dairy-free version of the drink, which is also vegan and gluten free, and only 67 calories per serving, which is almost half of that of a normal measure of Baileys.

Growing up, Rebekah Knight, now 25, from Ballymoney, Northern Ireland, thought she would start her period in her early teens, just like the rest of her friends.
However, 17 and still waiting, she began to worry that something wasn’t right. Initially, she thought she was just a ‘late starter’, but after sharing her fears with her mum Debbie, 52, she decided to go to the GP for some advice.
There, she was referred to Royal Victoria hospital, Belfast, for a variety of tests. Eventually an MRI scan revealed she had a rare condition called Mayer Rokitansky Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, meaning she was born without a vagina, cervix or… Read the full story

Doctors have shared a photo of the unusual sign that a man had a deadly heart infection.
The 27-year-old, from Canada, developed a bulging lump on his hand following a trip to the dentist.
The lump started as a red patch on his hand, but within two weeks it turned blue and began to bulge.
Naturally, he was concerned – especially as he’d also been experiencing pain in his abdomen.
He went to see a doctor, who found that he’d also suffered fevers, a decreased appetite, and night sweats for the past… Read the full story

Just over three out of four suicides – which is a whopping 76% – are carried out by men. Suicide remains the biggest cause of death for men under 35.
Yet it’s 2018, and still, we’re living in a day and age where men are still being told to ‘man up’. Where men are suffering in silence out of fear of being ridiculed, not listened to, or judged for being not ‘manly’ enough.
But newsflash, people: mental illness doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care whether you’re old, young, rich, poor, male or female.
It can affect anyone, at any time, and it can be completely debilitating.
Struggling doesn’t make you weak, regardless of gender. And being a man shouldn’t have any effect on whether you do so or not.
The sad thing is, that because of these ideas that men should ‘hold it all together’, men are actually nearly three times more likely than women to become alcohol dependent. They’re more likely to use and die… Read the full story

Living with a mental illness can take a bit of getting used to.
It’s kind of like spending every last penny on an amazing new house then having no money left in the bank to redecorate inside.
It feels really uncomfortable – imagine paisley print wallpaper and an avocado bathroom suite – but you know in time things will change, so you kind of have to just learn to put up with it.

Imagine how scary it can be to look down at the milk coming from your breast and see it’s bright red.
But it’s surprisingly common – and not just thanks to beetroot.
To raise awareness of the causes of bloody breast milk and reassure any mums experiencing the shock of bright red milk, one mum, Tanya Knox, has shared photos of her experience on The Milk Meg’s Facebook page.
Along with a photo of her red milk, Tanya explained that while pumping her milk she quickly saw it had turned red. She spotted a blood… Read the full story

If you’re into finding out how you tick, you probably already know your Myers-Brigg type.
We’re all familiar with the extrovert or introvert thing, at least.
But the hot trend for personality testing these days isn’t working out if you’re an INFJ or an INTP – it’s discovering your basic personality type with the Enneagram test.
The Enneagram test isn’t a new thing, but it’s making the rounds again thanks to HelloGiggles. And most of us aren’t exactly well-versed in the concept.
The theory goes like this.
There’s a structure called an Enneagram, which you can sketch out by drawing a circle, making nine points on… Read the full story

If we’re all united by one thing, it’s poo.
People get so embarrassed of their stools, but life would be be so much easier if we were all a bit more chill and acknowledged the fact that we all poo – especially some women.
We’ve all had turds hurtling out of our anus so stop acting like it’s a weird, gross thing that you don’t do. *shrugs*

If you’re sexually active, and not incredibly selfish, you’ll probably recognise the two situations I’m about to describe. They’re situations in which people of two different genders are offered oral sex.
(We’ve gone for him/her because it’s the most common sexual orientation, but that’s not to suggest it’s the most valid).
Him: I want to go down on you
Her: No thanks, I haven’t showered since this morning.
Him: Okay. Shall we just have sex?
(This dialogue isn’t the finest showcasing of my talent with words, but you see the point.)

According to research from Great Lengths, who quizzed just over 2,000 women, the age at which women feel the most confident is 31.
So if you’re still feeling a bit sh*t about all the photos you had to untag of yourself after a recent night out, and you’re not yet 31, you’ve officially got something to look forward to.
31 is a interesting age, because it also happens to be the average age that a UK woman gets married. So that confidence might be connected to the… Read the full story

New research has shown that the UK is in the grips of a puppy dumping epidemic, and can we just not?
Shocking statistics show that one in 10 puppies are being abandoned, just one month into purchase.
A staggering 54% of those questioned realised they’d made a mistake in getting a pup as soon as they got their new furry friend home, which is making us shake our damn heads so hard.
