My mum died when I was three so I had a bizarre obsession with death at a young age.
If I kill myself will I be reunited with her? If my dad dies before I’m 16 will I become an orphan?How growing up without a mum shaped me
Since his death in 2011 – thankfully I was over a decade past orphan criteria age, although I still like to refer to myself as one (got to have some perks of being parentless, no?) – I have accepted that death is just… Read the full story

Vegans are having it out in a Facebook group about a woman who ate her placenta.
Hannah Ayhens, who recently had a baby, posted a photo of her freshly birthed, bloody and veiny organ served on a beautiful glass dish with flower decorations, in the group called ‘What Broke Vegan Eat’, which has more than 80,000 members.Survey finds that half of men don't know where the vagina is

This, if you didn’t know, is a fairly big deal.Can you be vegan and eat your placenta?

If you’ve been on Instagram or the internet at large recently, you may have seen the super fun squiggly brows ‘trend’ pop up in your feed.Survey finds that half of men don't know where the vagina is
We say ‘trend’ because it’s not really a trend. Squiggle brows started because a makeup artist saw a Photoshopped image, thought it was funny, and decided to use makeup to make them a thing.
That one makeup artist’s look kicked off, squiggle brows went everywhere, and while they never became an actual makeup trend, they did trend online. Which is kind of the same thing.

There are lots of lovely things about being in a couple.Survey finds that half of men don't know where the vagina is
Companionship. Friendship. The knowledge that you’re less likely to die alone. But these benefits do come at something of a cost, namely having to share a bed for the rest of your lives.
In the olden days, when houses didn’t cost a million quid per square meter, middle class couples slept in separate rooms and only got together to do the nasty. Which might sound cold but actually was brilliant.
Let’s be honest. You’ve got… Read the full story

According to Groupon, those of us who live in cities don’t have enough access to green spaces.If squiggle brows weren't your thing, you can always try squiggle lips
In fact they found that 31% of people who work in the city don’t get to feel the grass beneath their toes.
Given that flats with gardens are even more obscenely expensive, and parks are spaces where you can put up flats and see them for a gabillion pounds, you can see why.

At the end of term, most parents are quite relieved to shrug off the school run, the packed lunches and the uniform laundry.
In fact, they probably looked forwards to the long break with the kids, booked a slew of exciting activities and were enthusiastic about the time they could spend together. I know I was.Stop judging Amy Childs – mothers should be allowed to wean their baby early

We all have hair removal horror stories.
There was that time I shaved off half of my eyebrow, covered it up with a plaster, and told everyone I’d banged my head on a cupboard.Lush is discontinuing some of your favourite products
The countless razor nicks. The horror of itchy ingrown hairs and angry red bumps after an attempt at hair removal cream. The pain of running an epilator over your underarms (never again).
For most of us, these mishaps are tucked deep away in the embarrassment box in our brains, never to be spoken of again.

The humble pineapple’s had a bit of a hard time recently.You can now get 'spit-roasted' pineapple gin
Now, though, it’s being skewered and roasted. Quite literally. Poor guy.
It’s all in aid of That Boutique-y Gin Company, who’ve launched a new Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin. Which, in fairness, sounds absolutely delicious.

Two years ago, we wrote about a South Korean restaurant that was themed soley around poo.Survey finds that half of men don't know where the vagina is
The cafe featured miniature toilet cups – which admittedly looked fairly off-putting when filled with tea – a number of poo-shaped plushies, and even squat toilets re-modelled as planters.
And now, a restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan, is following in their footsteps.
Modern Toilet restaurant serves its food in miniature toilet bowls (though they’re much bigger than the ones written about before), urinals and bidets.
For a long time, only a certain type of body was celebrated in the mainstream.There's now a calendar that's dedicated to celebrating plus-size women
Magazines displayed only super slim models on their covers, the only ‘hot’ celebs were those with a teeny waist and big breasts, and anyone that didn’t fit the norm was told to hide away or drape their bodies in shapeless sacks.
But recently things have been changing.
The body positivity movement, along with an increasing number of brands being up for using a more diverse range of models, has created a space for the definitions of beauty… Read the full story
Here’s an embarrassing confession.
When I was in my late teens, I really wanted to be in a beauty pageant.This new dating app doesn't show you your match's face straight away
I was a bit of a late bloomer, and ended up being really quite pretty aged eighteen. I’d lost some weight, got my braces off and discovered the miracle of just buying my clothes from Topshop rather than trying to be the kind of person who could wear vintage.
One day I snuck into the school I.T room and printed off some application papers for some low budget local pageant and started to fill… Read the full story

To people who rush through life, slow walkers are the bane of our existence on earth.There's now a calendar that's dedicated to celebrating plus-size women
They dawdle along, completely oblivious to the fact that they’re blocking the pavement and significantly lengthening the time it takes for you to nip to the post office.
They are infuriating.
And, it turns out, while they may walk slowly through Westfield shopping centre, slow walkers may be speeding towards an early death.
New research from Leicester University suggests that how slowly you walk could predict your risk of dying from heart disease at a young age. Oh dear.
