    With Tinder now ruling the dating app roost, we’ve grown accustomed to a face-first style of dating.

    This new dating app doesn't show you your match's face straight away

    Quickfire swiping often becomes the name of the game, as snap decision after snap decision often falls down to your potential future soulmate’s profile pic of choice.

    One new dating app is hoping to change all that though, by simply not showing you the profile pic of your potential matches.

    Taffy users will see their matches as a blurred photo at first, with a one-liner headline superimposed over the top.

    ‘Looking for a… Read the full story

    If you’ve ever wanted to immerse yourself in a prosecco-filled tub, now’s your chance – because prosecco bubble bath is here, and it looks super fancy. 

    There's now a calendar that's dedicated to celebrating plus-size women

    Online gift company Prezzybox has launched a range of bathing products all inspired by our favourite booze.

    They’re selling bubble bath that smells just like vodka and coke, and there’s also a G&T for anyone a little more sophisticated (we all know a G&T is a pretty fancy drink).

    But classiest of all is the prosecco bubble bath – and we can’t think of anything better than laying… Read the full story

    Keen for a way to get some extra cash?

    If you can’t be bothered ebay-ing all your old clothes and your mum’s teapots, there is another route you could go down.

    Learn from Yasmin Night (that’s not her real name, just the one she uses on the internet), who’s made more than £50,000 from selling her used underwear, hair, and toenail clippings to men who get turned on by being exploited.

    Being a dad. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be.

    Actually, it totally is – and then some. But parenthood was never supposed to be easy, was it?

    And there are times when you’re so fired up with putting on a positive, social media-tinged front you’re reluctant to admit the inconvenient truths – the little things about your kids, and the act of raising them, that drive you bonkers.

    (And just for the record, gents: the more of these you deny, the more we know they’re true.)

  • 08/31/17--08:06: Why is yawning contagious?
  • A novice monk yawns as he attends teachings by Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama (Picture: Reuters/Anuwar Hazarika)

    Did you yawn when you read that?

    Yawn is an involuntary reflex to having less oxygen in our body than we require.

    If you are bored or tired your breathing will slow down which will cause you to take in less oxygen and so your body will trigger a yawn to help breathe in more.

    It has also been suggested that yawn is a way of cooling your brain, to avoid the brain overheating.

    In short, more people yawn in summer than in winter.

    It is a way of increasing your heart rate blood flow and the use… Read the full story

    We totally get the attraction of extensions. 

    Not everyone can have long, full, glossy hair. A lot of us can only manage a ponytail the length and width of a generous prawn, which can be a bit depressing.

    We want to marry the guy who fed his girlfriend chicken nuggets while she got a manicure

    Hence the attraction of clip-in stennies. They give the illusion of Serena van der Woodsen hair, without having to spend hours in the salon for those of us who aren’t folically blessed.

    What’s not to love?

    Quite a lot, actually.

    In this week’s Is It Worth The Faff (which I’m considering renaming ‘we do stupid stuff to our faces for content’), I’m buying into the unfair definitions of beauty that declare you can only be attractive if you are permanently frozen at age 20. FUN.

    A known curator of the game Philipp Budeikin has been arrested (Picture: East2West News)

    The sinister internet game The Blue Whale Challenge emerged in 2013 and is believed to be linked to the deaths of around 130 young people.

    Can you be vegan and eat your placenta?

    The Blue Whale Challenge is a game that exists online and sees curators of the game seeking out impressionable teens through social media before subjecting them to a 50-day challenge.

    At the end of the challenge, the person is ‘challenged’ to commit suicide.

    When 19-year-old Beth Baston was accidentally sent a photo of the boy she was seeing in bed with another girl, she understandably felt pretty hurt.

    Woman hasn't urinated in three years after being diagnosed with rare condition

    The photo had been sent via Snapchat by the boy’s friend who had quite clearly forgotten that he had Beth on there as a contact.

    As their relationship was fairly new, Beth didn’t stay upset for too long – and once she’d come around, she decided to take her revenge with the help of her friend Alicia Carley.

    There’s a McDonald’s Big Mac challenge that could see one lucky burger-fanatic winning £100.

    All they have to do is fill themselves up on a meal big enough to feed a family of four – which seems pretty impossible.

    The challenge, which is in no way actually affiliated with McDonald’s, was created by a bunch of Facebook users who decided it’d be fun to challenge only the most dedicated of McDonald’s customers.

    Their goal, according to their Facebook page, is to ‘find the person that can… Read the full story

    Do cats really have nine lives? (Picture: Getty Images)

    Do cats really have nine lives? If so, why do they have exactly nine lives? And where does this come from?

    Cats are one of the nation’s favourite pets with more than seven million cats residing in homes across the UK.

    Before your mind starts to do jumping jacks, let us be real here: we (and science) can say without a doubt that cats have but one life to live, just like the rest of us.

    The popular belief is just a myth that has been around for hundreds of years.

    Gluten-free restaurants are popping up everywhere.

    10 hospital moments only IBD patients will understand

    While we used to only be able to get our gluten-free fix in the capital, many of the UK’s cities are giving London a run for their money.

    As a gluten-free Brummie, I am loving all the new ‘free from’ menus popping up at restaurants in my hometown.

    So whether you are local or in the city for a weekend of shopping, here are the best spots for gluten-free dining in Birmingham.

    It’s an old wives’ tale as old and wife-y as they come – coffee, supposedly, suppresses your appetite.

    Passed down from generation to generation, the widely-accepted tidbit of info is a haven for weight-watching caffeine obsessives.

    Now, though, it seems science might have debunked its dieting value.

    Slow walkers are more likely to die young, suggests study

    A new study, published in the Journal Of Food Science under the incredibly catchy title ‘Caffeine May Reduce Perceived Sweet Taste in Humans, Supporting Evidence That Adenosine Receptors Modulate Taste’, has debunked the theory, claiming instead that drinking coffee can actually trigger that pesky… Read the full story

    Happy Birthday September babies (Picture: Getty)

    September is the best month to be born in. Fact.

    Woman hasn't urinated in three years after being diagnosed with rare condition

    Birthdays are a highlight of the year for us all because it is the one day of the year when everyone has to be nice to us. We get to eat as much as possible, people sometimes sing a little jingle and fancy presents are involved.

    In fact, birthdays are even better than Christmas.

    But the only way to make a birthday even better is by having it in September.

    Worse yet, taking a few pals along can often be just as bad – being in such confined space with only one or two people can lead to some big fall outs, or even going a little bit loopy.

    First there was breakfast; standard fry-up.

    Then there was brunch; avocado on toast– tres posh.

    Then came – cue big inhale – the bottomless brunch.

    Yep, a year or two ago brunch got well and truly pimped, with unlimited extras such as bottomless bubbles, cocktails and rounds of hash browns becoming the #SundayFunday norm, especially among groups of mates that made it their mission to smash the absolute arse out of a two-hour time slot.

    When it comes to finding a decent place to live, you have to make some compromises.

    You find a place with a huge bedroom, but a bathroom with just enough room to turn around in.

    You take a flat that’s a little smaller than you’d like for an amazing location.

    So yes, this cabin may be a little smaller than the one bedroom loft you had your heart set on, but you might still be keen. After all, it’s cosy, it’s private, and it’s got amazing rooftop views.

    Because, well, it’s on a rooftop.
