Cutlery just got interesting, as Asda has released a set way more Instagram-worthy than the dinner you’ll be eating with them.

It’s normally Tesco that’s determined to pull out all of the stops on Twitter.
Since the micro-blogging website began, corporations have found new ways to interact with the public — and as this exchange proves, it can feel as awkward as seeing your old school teacher and being able to call them by their first name.
But this time, the mighty budget supermarkets have got out their battle axes to have a war — a war in GIFs.Meet the deaf nutritional coach who's fighting for greater accessibility in fitness

It’s a genuinely awful dating tactic used by master manipulators and general d*cks, that involves delivering a bunch of love bombs to win a date over and distract them from all the sh*t stuff going down.
Here’s how it works, according to Dr Dale Archer of Read the full story

Coca-Cola. It’s one of the most popular and widely recognisable drinks in the world, but still very few people know what’s actually in it.

Luckily, we live in a country where tipping is pretty simple.People are squishing their boobs into hearts, for reasons we don't entirely understand
You tip your waiter/waitress to acknowledge that working on their feet all day and dealing with douchebags for minimum wage is unjust.
You can also tip your hairdresser if you feel like it, and let your taxi driver keep the change if they were particularly jovial (shout out to the super friendly female taxi driver in Margate), but it’s not expected of you.

There are many sausage flavours on the market.Pizza delivery guy leaves really creepy note for girl who didn't tip him
If my meat memory recalls correctly, I’ve previously digested such taste sensations as leek and stilton, apple and fennel, and cheddar and onion.
You can even get wonderful vegan sausages these days, which is a real godsend for my meatless comrades.
But what’s weirder is the introduction of booze-infused meats. I mean,wine, sure, I get it, who doesn’t love a red wine jus?
But vodka Red Bull sausages?

During the final year of my degree, Tinder launched in the UK, and the novelty of simply indicating an attraction to someone through the flick of a finger revolutionised dating forever.Why I ditched Tinder for my friends
Through Tinder, I made firm friends, awkwardly stumbled across colleagues, and even met my former partner.
But five years on, I never want to use the app again — because it takes too much time away from my friendships.

Back in June we brought you the life-changing news that there’s going to be a pop-up pug cafe in London in September.Why is it that the more you work out, the worse you feel about the way you look?
That’s right – a cafe where pugs and humans can unite over flat whites and puguccinos, with some good conversation thrown in for good measure.

The cafe was originally going to be in Chiswick on 2 September but it’s now happening… Read the full story
It feels to me like there is a bit of a conspiracy going on around nap time.7 lost parenting skills that your own parents had nailed
One the one hand, we are all told to ‘rest when your baby rests’, but then the reality is that when we do get our little one to sleep, we tiptoe around, trying to do things like wash up in silence.
Well, I’m here to tell you that there is a third way.

I’ve never been too bothered about my weight.
I generally eat what I want because I exercise quite regularly, which means that until now, I’ve got away with eating family bags of Razzles of an afternoon because I’ve run 4k at lunchtime. That’s how I like to do things – earn and enjoy.Why I ditched Tinder for my friends
But recently, I decided that I could do with losing a bit of weight. It’s summer and I’ve got my first holiday coming up with people I’ve never been on holiday with and I want to look my best.
And as a fitness writer who’s knee-deep in the online fitness world, I wanted to see whether I too could look as incredible as all these Instagrammers.
So I’ve embarked on a healthy eating and personal training regime.
No carbs. No fat. No sugar (although I have had the odd bit of ‘unrefined sugar’, because I’m… Read the full story
