Ban WhatsApp blue ticks.
You heard me. Get them out of our faces.
There is absolutely no benefit in knowing when someone has read your message, and the potential gulf of time it will take for them to reply.You can now buy marshmallows injected with gin and Prosecco
A simple ‘delivered’ notification will do. Even the grey ticks managed to convey that. But there is absolutely no pleasurable rhyme or reasoning in having an anxiety dine-out on whether someone enjoyed your monologue, and whether they thought it worthy enough to warrant a reply.
It’s almost like the notification system encourages you to check your… Read the full story
Moving city as a young adult can be terrible. There, someone said it.How to boss moving to a new city as an adult
Changing location and feeling at home in a new city takes time, friends, and a great deal of logistical expertise.
Tackling all of that at once can just be a little bit rubbish.
So what do you do when you have to take the plunge, with no-one around you for support and only the glistening hope of new friends on the horizon?
We spoke to a legion of experts about bossing the move and how to help you on that journey of getting settled.

How on earth did I get here? The last full year of being a 20-something.
I’m finding that I’m desperately scouring the internet for any schemes or initiatives that include the phrase ‘age 18-30’ that I can take advantage of before I clock the big three-oh.Nobody should use the N-word – not even black people
I look back to my late teens with amusement now.

All little angels have off days and my kids are no exception.
Kids have super powers that mean they can sense when you really, really want/need them to behave, and of course on those days you can guarantee their behaviour will be appalling.8 reasons why it’s normal to have the libido of a slug when you have small children

When it comes to a TV boxset or movie collection, why bother watching it in measured amounts when you could instead watch it all in one go?How do we stop our Whatsapp blue tick obsession?
Thanks to technology it is now easier than ever to spend a whole day lounging around, watching several episodes of your new favourite obsession, and only moving when you need to use the loo.
These precious days known as binge watching days and they are just truly magical, because there is no better way to relax, eat a lot of snacks and… Read the full story
Billabong actually had the nerve to run these two adverts side by side.
One depicts a die-hard surfer in an impressive leap over a gigantic wave – the other shows a set of legs bronzing on the sand.Serena Williams praises Andy Murray for challenging casual sexism at Wimbledon
Sadly, the die-hard surfer wasn’t advertising the surf brand’s female range. And yes, it was the legs.
Understandably this has got a lot of people rather hot under the collar with thousands taking to social media to express their anger.
The problem? Well, it would appear that Billabong seems to think that women who surf only… Read the full story

Have you jumped on the turmeric latte train? Or maybe you call it golden milk, or even golden mylk (the ‘y’ being a virtue signal for a nut, seed or grain-based milk substitute).
This very Instagram-friendly drink, drunk in various forms for thousands of years on the Indian subcontinent, is on our supermarket shelves, on cafe menus and even in our kitchen. Many of us are drinking it for its supposed restorative and health-promoting properties.How to live forever*, according to a Japanese longevity chef
But are we drinking it right? And, is it doing us any good?

It’s meant to be the happiest day of your life, but there will definitely be some wayward guests intent on ruining it for you.How do we stop our Whatsapp blue tick obsession?
Although weddings are meant to be all about love, they ultimately turn into drunken gatherings, filled with cake, emotions and a wide range of personalities that don’t always get on well together.
Now the majority of these guests are respectful, calm and behave in a manner that is fitting of the wedding, but then of course… Read the full story
Us Brits have some very peculiar ways of enjoying food, and this is apparent when it comes to dessert choices.How do we stop our Whatsapp blue tick obsession?
After every meal we decide to indulge ourselves in the likes of trifle, rice pudding or quite simply a big dollop of custard.
School dinners weren’t complete without a hearty serving of jam roly poly and if your childhood birthday party didn’t end with jelly and ice cream, well then it was a total failure.

I always say that sex and depression is the intersection of two taboo topics.
It’s especially hard to talk about the two together because, frankly, it can be hard to talk about either topic separately.Meds causing sexual side effects? These products could help
Today, we’re going to look at some commonly held (and oft-repeated) beliefs that really need to be retired in the name of destroying the stigma around these important topics.
Also, they are just not true.

You have probably sat next to me on the train, smiled at me as I stood behind you in the line for your morning coffee.

We all love a nice fry up, but not all full English breakfast items are equal when it comes to where they rank on the essential tastiness scale.How much sex people in your age group are having
There are of course some items that make the breakfast famous, but there are also some items that if they disappeared from the plate, no one would really miss. Looking at you in particular black pudding.

Is it supposed to feel this anticlimactic?
I spent months waiting for therapy on the NHS, went for online therapy to speed up the process, then finally, finally managed to get my first appointment – which happened on a laptop, upstairs in a villa in Spain, while everyone drank and had fun downstairs, because I was told that if I couldn’t take that appointment, I’d get therapy snatched out of my hands forever.Billabong ran these two surf adverts and people got angry
That first session didn’t go to plan. The wifi was so terrible that I only spoke to my therapist for seven minutes – just enough time to explain how therapy works and have a brief check that I wasn’t going to off myself – before my poor laptop gave up entirely.
Ten weeks later, I’m done.
That’s 10 sessions of 50 minutes. That’s just over eight hours in total.

Mental health series #11 - when you're getting better, it's okay to still have setbacks/lowsellencscottmetro illustrations
When your mental or emotional well-being rapidly worsens, this is often called a ‘mental health crisis’. And if you find yourself in the situation, it may be important to get medical help quickly.

Alright, so you’re at Disneyland, having a grand old time, when it hits you: These plain old Minnie Mouse ears just aren’t glorious enough.Now that I've finished my course of therapy, I'm scared of what happens next
Rose gold ones don’t do the trick. You need more.
Enter rainbow unicorn Minnie Mouse ears.
Yes, these exist, and yes, they are just as sparkly and wonderful as their name would suggest.
They’re not official Disney merch, to be clear, and you won’t find them on the grounds of Disneyland.

Imagine if you had to wear a uniform for work, but you simply couldn’t get one in your size.
Frustrating, right?How much sex people in your age group are having
That’s what loads of plus-size nurses and doctors have to deal with when it comes to getting scrubs.
Scrubs are rarely available in larger sizes, and when they are, nurses and doctors often have to pay more to access them.
They don’t tend to be flattering or comfortable, and they’re definitely not designed to make the wearer feel good.
One brand is trying to change that.

If you think you treat your beloved hound like a king/kween, then think again, pal.Billabong ran these two surf adverts and people got angry
A fluffy bed, premium dog food and twice-daily walks don’t mean sh*t if you haven’t built your pooch its very own canine-sized bedroom in your home.
Isn’t that right, Al from California?
Yes, Al’s brother went to great lengths to build his furry bezzie its very own room under the stairs, and his bro was – understandably – quite keen to share it with the world.

A glass of wine you can sip in a dark room, with something to snuggle when seeing your favourite character killed off gets a bit much, emotionally.
Second best option? In the bath.
Think about it. What could be more soothing than luxuriating in a tub while you watch attractive people fight and f***?
I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) at 21, but I’ve been known as a ‘drama queen’ for as long as I’ve been big enough to throw a proper tantrum.
