France has had its fair share of odd vending machines.
Sure, you can get pizzas and condoms from vending machines around the world but they’re small fry in comparison to what our Gallic friends have.Regina George is alive and well and this student’s yearbook photos prove it
But nothing quite compares to a vending machine which spits out oysters.
Which is what one seafood vendor has invented.

When I recently read an article in which described IVF as nothing but ‘people’s whimsical obsession with baby making‘, I was mortified.IVF isn't done on a whim - and NHS funding for it is a necessity
The article came after it was announced that local NHS cuts have forced 13 areas of England to either restrict or altogether stop offering IVF this year, in order to save money.
I can’t argue the need for funding, but what I can do is stand up for people being demonised simply for wanting a family.
Within the article, views were expressed surrounding the need for privatisation in order to look solely after physical and mental health. It suggested people should adopt instead of expecting an NHS-funded IVF cycle, and likened the funding of unhealthy lifestyle choices to becoming parents if people ‘fancy it’.
I understand the fears surrounding IVF and its… Read the full story

Katie Wright felt what she thought was one of those classic under-the-skin spots on her forehead. It didn’t have a head, just a sore bump.

The wine is flowing. The conversation is good. The lighting is subtle.
But what you really need to turn it up a notch is some good old fashioned sex tunes.
A bit of Marvin. A little Luther.
So you just yell out: ‘Alexa, play baby-making music’ and away you go. Sex, romance and baby making follows.

We’ve all got an aunt with that sign on her kitchen wall.
‘Life’s too short to drink bad wine’ it reads. She loves it.
Laughs at it every time. Spills wine down the side of her glass every time someone bring it up, she’s laughing so much. Does that thing only aunts can pull off, where they sort of touch the side of their head and let out an exhausted half-laugh half-sigh. ‘Brilliant’, she says to no-one in particular.Why turning off my phone notifications was the best idea I’ve had in months

A child’s Christening is a wonderful affair.IVF isn't done on a whim - and NHS funding for it is a necessity
It consists of some very special moments, especially in lead up to the event, such as picking your child’s outfit, selecting the godparents and getting all of your loved ones together in preparation for the lovely day.
Of course, to get everyone together you need some sort of invitation – or an events page, at the very least.

When one cheeky little boy wrote to the tooth fairy to tell her his teeth were worth way more than $1 each, he was quite confident in thinking he was going to start seriously cashing in each time he popped one under his pillow.Woman's warning about skin infections will make you never pick a spot again
The boy had asked whether his usual $1 could be upgraded to $5, and it seems the fairy wasn’t too pleased. Which is fair enough, how can she afford to pay $5 for a tooth, especially when she’s got so many teeth to tend to?
