    Plant-based ice cream at Vegan Nights
    Can’t believe it’s not dairy? (Picture: Vegan Nights)

    Veganism is slithering further and further into the mainstream.

    Proof of this is the news that east London’s Shoreditch is getting an entire month devoted to the cruelty-free lifestyle this August.

    Brand new festival V For will take over The Old Truman Brewery in August, showcasing the best in vegan food and fashion, as well as wellness and fitness.

    With a growing number of people curious about veganism and plant-based food, the festival hopes to bring together lifelong vegans and sceptics.

    V For will kick off on 2 August with a special edition of the hugely popular vegan night market,… Read the full story

    A few years ago, I was getting a sports massage when the therapist gave my feet a quick going over.

    ‘Does this hurt at all?’ they said as they sunk their fingers into my foot arch, sending me into a world of pain.

    It turned out that they were also a trained reflexologist, who could feel something problematic was going on in the middle of my foot.

    Was it nonsense or was there something actually going on somewhere further up my body?

    Fast forward two years and I’m sitting in Malini Sarkel’s office in Harley Street, listening to how my feet are showing obvious signs of digestive trouble…through the arch.

    It’s not the first time I’ve felt any discomfort but I’d always put it down to running. Roll a golf ball under your foot after a 10-miler and you’ll soon be squirming. But generally, it’s always been more uncomfortable around the middle of my foot and arch.

    ‘That’s your digestive system,’ Malini, a reflexologist at Read the full story

    Last month, we revealed that Malteser Buttons would be coming to the UK.

    Mars accidentally let it slip back in March that a new version of Maltesers were going to be flattened to make them more like Minstrels, during preparations for a new advert.

    Obviously, we were super excited because hey – a mix of Maltesers and Minstrels sounds amazing.

    And now, we’re happy to see they’ve finally made it into supermarkets.

    The Malteser Buttons are shaped like Buttons and come with tiny malt balls inside. They’re currently selling as both small and large packets in Tesco.

    A student whose period pains were so severe she would be rushed to A&E each month needing morphine is now going through the menopause at just 22.

    Katy Johnson was diagnosed with endometriosis in January this year after a decade of painful periods which saw her bed-bound; unable to move for a week as she was hit with waves of sickness.

    It was only after she lost two and a half stone throughout October and November last year that she decided to visit a doctor.

    After a scan found cysts on her ovaries and keyhole surgery at Glasgow Royal Infirmary revealed adhesions all over her reproductive organs, Katy was diagnosed… Read the full story

    A family have given up everything to create a Pulp Fiction inspired diner where all of the seats are made from cars.

    33-year-old Neil Burden quit his job making wheels for agricultural vehicles to help build the V-Ate diner with his wife Victoria and his in-laws.

    Neil says that he, Victoria, and his in-laws Bob and Lesley, all had a vision for the restaurant – and so they each invested money into it.

    He said: ‘Victoria and I sold our home and lived above the restaurant to make it work, and my in-laws remortgaged their house.

    It’s a dull grey weekday, and you’re stopping by your favourite café to pick up an espresso when you see her: The gorgeous new barista they’ve hired, with dark curly hair and dimples. Smiling as she grabs a fresh cup for you (she even gets your name right on the first go).

    You’re smitten. Suddenly your day has perked up, and you know you want to take her out on a date. But how can you ask her out in a respectful way? After all, she’s at work.

    If you’ve ever sprinkled catnip on a kitty, you’ll know that stuff is truly magical.

    A catnip-sprinkled cat will roll around, purr, and act like an adorable fool. It’s the purest joy.

    Sadly not all of us are lucky enough to have our own cats (damn you, unfeeling landlords), so we can’t just grab some catnip and a pal when we’re feeling low.

    It’s handy, then, that photographer Andrew Marttila – also known as The Cat Photographer – has dedicated himself to capturing photos of cats in the euphoric moment they come into… Read the full story

    You might think that you were born with a propensity for reaching for comfort food in times of stress, but new research suggests that emotional eating is actually a learned behaviour.

    Researchers from UCL have found that the main cause of emotional eating is home environment – with parents giving their children food to make them feel better.

    The new study builds on a previous study by the university which was published last year, highlighting the same thing.

    The study’s co-lead Dr Moritz Herle, from the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, says: ‘Experiencing stress and negative emotions can have a different effect on appetite for different people.

    Those experiencing gender dysphoria – when a person’s biological sex conflicts with their gender identity – will no longer be classified as mentally ill.

    The World Health Organisation announced the development on Monday as part of their new catalogue covering all injuries, illnesses, and diseases.

    The new catalogue lists ‘gender incongruence’ (another term for gender dysphoria) under ‘conditions related to sexual health’.

    Previously being transgender was categorised under ‘mental, behavioural and neurodevelopmental disorders’.

    Transgender advocates have been campaigning for this change for years, so the recategorisation is a big deal. Campaigners suggest that by categorising gender dysphoria as a mental disorder, WHO has been categorising being trans as something… Read the full story

    New parents get an average of just 4:44 hours of sleep a night during their baby’s first year, a new study suggests.

    They also spend almost an hour every day trying to get their sprog to sleep – adding up to nearly 14 days over the course of the year.

    And much of that is spent pacing around, rocking the baby. In fact, mums and dads pace the equivalent of two miles every day – 730 miles over 12 months, or 28 marathons.

    The study, commissioned by sleep technology brand Simba, found that although sleep-deprivation might help parents get their steps in, it can have a detrimental impact on their memory, relationships… Read the full story

    If there’s one rule to live by it’s to never promise more than you can deliver.

    And one hotpot restaurant in China is now learning that the hard way.

    Jaimener, an all-you-can-eat eatery in Chengdu, Sichuan province, was forced to close on Tuesday after loads of people turned up and began using a discount offered by a membership card.

    Chengdu Economic Daily reports that the place went out of business less than two weeks after customers took advantage of a promotion that allowed them to pay 120 yuan (£14) for all the could eat for a whole month.

    And while that might sound like a total bargain, that offer (and the restaurant’s… Read the full story

    An American distillery has just launched a very unusual whiskey – that’s flavoured with actual beaver.

    Tamforth Distilling in New Hampshire has created new product Eau de Musc, which contains castoreum.

    ‘What’s that?’ we hear you cry. Well, dear reader, it’s oil obtained from the castor anal sacs of beavers.

    In the US, castoreum is recognised as a safe food additive, so the distillery thought, ‘Why don’t we give it a go?’.

    ‘The information on this old timey “natural flavoring” sparked some intrigue and further discovery of the castoreum’s use as a spirit ingredient,’ the distillery’s website… Read the full story

    We all tend to drink more in the summer months anyway – long, hot afternoons down the park are synonymous with tins of beer and Coke.

    However, with the World Cup, we’re set to drink more this summer than ever – but a shortage of carbon dioxide is threatening to make that next to impossible.

    The shortage is happening across Europe, and major drinks manufacturers are trying to secure the gas directly with their suppliers.

    ‘We are aware of a situation affecting the availability of CO2 across Europe, which has now started to impact beer producers in the UK”, said Brigid Simmonds, head of the British… Read the full story

    Ikea is becoming something of a trailblazer when it comes to plant-based innovation.

    First of all, the Swedish giant launched vegan meatballs. Then they introduced plant-based hot dogs.

    And by next year, you’ll be able to get your hands on 100% plant-based soft serve ice cream at Ikea Bistro.

    Currently in development, the new fruit-based soft serve is going to be trialled at Ikea stores in Portugal, with the product development team at Ikea Food Services in Malmö aiming to have it rolled out globally by summer 2019.

    A mum has to bathe her baby in bleach to help him shed his skin due to a rare disease which leaves him covered in scales.

    Alicia Barber, 27, washes her one-year-old son Jamison in Clorox twice a week for 15 minutes before exfoliating him with a mitt to rub away hard skin and ward off infection.

    Jamison suffers from Harlequin ichthyosis, a severe skin disease caused by a genetic mutation which affects around one… Read the full story

    Mobile homes tend to be reserved for holiday parks and temporary accommodation.

    But not Jessie Lipskin’s one.

    She’s just spent three years converting an old 1966 Greyhouse bus into a luxury home that looks more desirable than most four times the size.

    Jessie tells Bored Panda that she was inspired by watching the documentary Garbage Warrior – in which an eco-architect designs and builds Earthships using all-recycled materials.

    ‘[It] really resonated with me,’ she says.

    When you first move out of home and into a houseshare, it seems like the best thing ever.

    Living just a few feet away from your pals instead of your parents? Being able to pre-lash together before every single night out? Piling onto the sofa for hungover cuddles the next day?

    What a dream.

    At least it is until you wake up and clock the piles of dirty dishes on the side, realise there’s no loo roll when you’re busting for a poo, and notice half your clothes are missing ‘cos your flatmate has borrowed them without asking.

    Living in a digital world has undoubtedly made me more impatient and a lot angrier.

    When ASOS announced they were offering same day delivery in my area a few weeks ago, instead of squealing with delight, I shrugged my shoulders and said ‘about time’ like a textbook, nonchalant millennial.

    Having the option to spend our hard earned cash with a ‘one-click buy’ on sites like Amazon means we now expect everything to happen immediately, and that includes our interactions with the brands themselves.

    It takes seconds to tag a brand, send a mean Tweet and publicly shame them into responding to a complaint in front of millions.

    But we often forget that there are still real people manning the phones, and hiding behind a screen doesn’t make the job any less mentally draining.

    Emily Weston is a 25 year old brand and marketing manager from London. She tells us that it’s shocking how quickly customers can fly off the handle online.
