People claim that they’ve hoped themselves to health. That it’s the reason for their younger looking skin.Why is it that the more you work out, the worse you feel about the way you look?

There are few fresh hells worse than shopping for school shoes.
Having done it from the adult end (as a nanny) and the child end (as a latter day Verruca Salt) I can attest that it is no fun for anyone involved. As a child you probably want something pretty, fashionable and impressive that will make the rest of your year think you’re far cooler than you actually are.Men are more likely to experience work-related mental health issues, says new report
As a parent you want something sturdy, hard-wearing and supportive to your child’s feet.
A shoe which does both of those things is pretty… Read the full story

We’re obsessed with bums these days.
Peach emojis reign supreme on Whatsapp. Glute classes dominate gym timetables.Drinking tea and wine might help to battle flu symptoms, new research suggests
But generally, society is only keen a specific type of arse – the juicy Kim K kind. Bums that are a bit flat/lumpy/boney don’t get a look in.
Which is why two Montreal-based artists are on a mission to highlight the beauty of arses.
When you’re feeling like crap, the go-to wisdom is to down Lemsip, hot ginger and lemon concoctions, and plenty of water.
But new research suggests it might be worth throwing red wine into the mix.Why is it that the more you work out, the worse you feel about the way you look?
The study, conducted by the Washington University of Medicine and published in the journal Science, found that a compound found in foods and drinks such as black tea, red wine, and blueberries can prevent severe flu infections in mice.*

Having a brother is the BEST.
People who only have a same-sex sibling, or no siblings at all, are seriously missing out.13 thoughts you have at your younger sibling’s wedding
Maybe I’m just lucky, but the relationship I have with my younger brother is great – he makes me laugh more than anyone else, and our phone conversations are gloriously weird.
We fought growing up, as all kids do, but never too much, and we keep in touch without our parents having to force us to (although he is better at that than I am).
This is why the brother/sister bond is particularly great.

The scientists used genetic sequencing on women who had suffered from miscarriages and birth defects, and found they had specific gene mutation that affected production of… Read the full story

The more stress builds, the less easy it is to manage the pressures of everyday life.Experts think unleashing your inner child could be the key to easing stress and here’s why

Going topless at the gym can be one of the most liberating things you can do.
Going it alone in a crop top or sports bra, you’re both secure and cool.Getting out of bed and heading into nature might be the best way to deal with a breakup

But for many of us, it’s an unimaginatively brave thing to do.
Because not only do many of us have massive confidence body confidence issues to overcome, but showing… Read the full story
When you’re going through a breakup, the very last thing you will want to do is leave your bed.Why is it that the more you work out, the worse you feel about the way you look?

I found this out for myself having split from my fiancé a few days before my birthday (28 and feeling SUPER GREAT, guys).

22-year-old Kaitlyn Terrana suffers from Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS), a rare neurological condition characterised by recurring periods of excessive sleep.

There’s a shortlist of things that you can say to me if you really, really want to piss me off.
‘Feminism? Women already have equal rights!’
‘Women who choose to have children can’t complain about having their careers interrupted.’
‘How is this story news?’Why is it that the more you work out, the worse you feel about the way you look?

You can now treat your vagina to some of the fun that it has previously missed out on, with branded Broad City sex toys.Why is it that the more you work out, the worse you feel about the way you look?
I mean, with a show that fun and sex positive, we guess it makes quite a lot of sense that there would be a sex toy collab?
We’re actually very into this, because it’s the first sex toy collection we’ve seen which is all about the fun side of sex. Having a w*nk doesn’t have to be all silk sheets and lingerie, and that’s exactly what this collection says.
It’s fun, bright, cheerful and silly. Just like really good sex can be.

Weddings have a habit of running away with themselves.10 things that weddings would be better without
Before you know it you’re clinging on for dear life, just trying to keep up. You have little time to think about what you really want for your big day, or to consider what mistakes you might make.
Luckily, many, many people have got married before you, and they are simply full of excellent wedding advice.
Here are the things that, in retrospect, these people would have done differently.
“1. Don’t hand-make all your own decorations. It might look cute, but the amount of time and stress that goes into it just escalates.
2. Do try on your wedding dress the day before, to make sure you’re 100% happy with it. I had mine taken in several inches at the waist, and the seamstress forgot to make the same amend to the ribbon around the waist, which resulted in… Read the full story

While Tinder is made for matching, that usually doesn’t include matching photos.Men are more likely to experience work-related mental health issues, says new report
However, for 20-year-old Brianna Boyce and her ex Adrian, 21, it does.
With Brianna and Adrian no longer being together, they’ve both joined Tinder in search of real love.
Of course, with Tinder, people tend to be judged on appearance, and so the ex-couple decided to use their favourite photo of themselves – which just so happened to be a photo of the two of them together.
That didn’t deter Brianna though, who decided to crop her ex-boyfriend out of… Read the full story
