Car journeys, eh? They’re fun, unless you have kids.
Because while you may have fantasies of serene roadside picnics, fun family singalongs and carefree chats with your spouse while the kids play happily in the back, the reality is squabbling siblings, soul-crushing boredom and endless toilet stops, simply because you need a break from all the fighting.
And whether you’re getting away for a bank holiday, setting off for a summer break or simply visiting friends or relatives, those miles will tick away with agonising slowness – unless you come prepared.
That’s where we come in…

Ganesh Chaturthi is a 10-day Hindu festival that begins on August 25 this year. It is celebrated to honour the elephant-headed god Ganesha’s birthday.
Ganesha is known by 108 different names and is the son of the Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.Sorry everyone, but pudding is actually terrible
The festival begins on the fourth day of Hindu lunar-solar calendar month Bhadrapada.
This typically falls in the months of August or September, and in 2017 will fall on August 25 until September 5.
Today I learned that 40% of British people wouldn’t consider having sex with a robot while in a relationship with a human to be cheating.
Oh, and while previous research has suggested that only 10% of us would be up for banging a robot, that figure goes up to 36% when the robots are more human-like, like the ones in Humans or Westworld.
That bit of information has rattled me to my core.
Of course having sex with a robot that’s been designed to look and behave like a human is cheating. And if you don’t get why, I’m honestly a little concerned.
Cheating is not as simple as… Read the full story

If you were a Love Island fanatic, there’s every chance you started watching Channel 5’s Make or Break in hopes of getting some sort of relationship drama-filled fix.Woman writes powerful letter to the partners of people who have anxiety
Unlike Love Island, the couples on this show were actual real-life couples, participating in the series to see, much like the title suggests, whether their relationship was make or break.
While there were some couples who were obviously loved-up, for others, their relationships were in tatters – with this mainly coming down to trust issues.
But there was one couple on the show who… Read the full story

A mother made the heartbreaking decision to shave off her two-year-old daughter’s ‘beautiful blonde curls’ in a bid to stop her from compulsively pulling out her hair.Of course having sex with a robot counts as cheating
Kerry Shearer, from Grantham, Lincolnshire, believes her young daughter Isla suffers from a condition called trichotillomania – an impulse control disorder where the sufferer feels compelled to yank out their own hair.
According to Kerry, it all started when Isla was an infant. She would wrap her hair around her finger and suck her thumb.
At first, Kerry and her husband, Gavin, 35, weren’t concerned,… Read the full story
Burger lovers rejoice, because today is your day.Of course having sex with a robot counts as cheating
While the origins of National Burger Day aren’t very clear, we’re just glad of it’s existence, because after all it’s a great excuse to stuff our faces with our favourite burgers.
Burgers are one of the greatest things invented by humans. Fact. They come in a variety of types, and go perfectly well with a whole host of cheeses, fries and different sauces.
But sadly not all burgers are created equal, and here is a ranking of worst to best.

Over how different their lives are. Over who – married mum Alice or single no kids Bibi – has the best life.

Tinder is full of fakes, just like any dating app.
We’ve all had a date where the person we meet up with has been stretching the truth about something – whether it’s their height, employment or you know, their facial features.

This is the burger bro.
He’s a specific subgroup of the city male, who prides himself on his knowledge and experience of meat between carbs, bonds with men over discussions about Patty & Bun, and would be entirely okay with queuing for an hour just to try In N Out from a Shoreditch popup.

Huge fan of HBO’s epic fantasy series Game Of Thrones?
If you’re as obsessed with the series as we are, you’re already emotionally invested in every single story line, scheduling your life around the latest episode and staying up way past your bedtime.

If you call your brand ‘Missguided’ and then make a moral cock up, you can’t be surprised if people make jokes.There is absolutely nothing 'feminist' about this tiny t-shirt
And that’s exactly what has happened. Missguided have made a t-shirt, sold through ASOS, which has the word ‘feminist’ written on it.
Now there’s a lot of debate about whether it’s a good or bad thing to slap the word ‘feminist’ on an item in an attempt to sell it to women. In some ways it’s nice to see young women wearing their political intentions emblazoned across… Read the full story

So naturally, it makes sense that Yandy’s gone ahead and created a ~sexy~ Jon Snow outfit, complete with a Jon-esque cape, faux fur, and faux leather.
It’s not called a sexy Jon Snow costume, because, well, copyright issues, but it’s clear that Jon Snow is who Yandy’s emulating.
Their costume is called ‘Sexy Northern Queen’, and the product description mentions preparing for winter. Definitely sexy Jon.
