    This article contains quite a lot of pictures of men with babies. You have been warned. (Picture: Getty)

    Less than 1% of UK men who are entitled to shared parental leave are taking it. 

    Sigh.

    If only this were surprising.

    The Temperley London LFW show was a French Riviera inspired dream

    As parental leave goes, the UK has a pretty sweet deal. In the US, for instance, neither parent gets any guaranteed paid paternity leave.

    Here we get 52 weeks entitlement which can be split between both partners. For the first 6 weeks you get your normal pay, and then after that you get statuary maternity pay (SMP) which is… Read the full story

    Every parent knows the struggle.

    You can’t wait to finally get some time on your own, free of crying children or sticky-handed toddlers.

    You plan your night out for weeks. You tell everyone how much you need some alone time.

    Then it gets to the big day and you feel like you’ve made a terrible mistake. You can’t be away from your child, not even for a minute. Your heart will break, they’ll hate you forever, and everything will be awful.

    A day in the life of a sex worker
    Yes, cleaning is a part of the day (Picture: Deirdre Spain for Metro.co.uk)

    I was recently commissioned to write an audio sitcom for audible.com, and it’s finally been released! The premise? The Utterly Mundane Life Of A Dominatrix.

    While I’m aware that ‘sex sells’, I just can’t kid myself or get away from the niggling part of me that knows sex-work is also full of tedious, tiresome tasks – and a hell of a lot of admin.

    Six women turned up to their friends wedding wearing the same dress – and no, they weren’t bridesmaids.

    While Julia Mammone’s wedding will surely be a memorable day, it was her friends turning up in the same dresses that she’ll struggle to forget.

    They had all turned up in a $150 lace dress sold by Portmans and Forever New, turning eyes away from Julia.

    But Julia wasn’t mad, in fact she found it ‘bloody hilarious’, according to an interview with The Telegraph.

    She said: ‘I’ve heard of two women,… Read the full story

    You can now buy some boozy teacakes from your local supermarket as Roberts Bakery has released some Gin and Tonic ‘Fun Buns’ – taking a modern-day twist on the traditional teacake. 

    10 sure signs you simply don't trust your partner

    Roberts produced the cocktail teacakes to boost the ‘trend for boozy baking’ – though don’t worry, they won’t leave you dancing in your kitchen or singing bad karaoke, as the four-pack of Fun Buns only contain a dash of gin and a splash of tonic, and are said to have a fresh, lemony taste.

    Snakes are very much in, and we can’t quite get enough.

    Rejoice, vegetable-lovers: A vegan night market is coming to London for one evening only

    We’re not just talking snake print, though brands are stocking enough of it. Instead, we’re talking about a green and red patterned snake that’s being embellished on various clothing from various brands.

    Recently, Boohoo released a pair of white, snake-adorned trainers which feature the little green and red snake with some snake-print additions.

    The days are getting colder, the evenings darker, and we’re now in that time of year where it’s totally acceptable to start winter shopping.

    Starting us off with something to keep us cosy as we turn to the heating up is Primark’s latest release – an oversized, wearable unicorn blanket that comes complete with mittens and a hood.

    Yep, summer’s most definitely over.

    The cute comforter features a pink and blue heart-shaped pattern, a unicorn’s face, a white horn, a hood so that you can keep your ears warm, and a pair of… Read the full story

    Relationships are built on trust. Without trust, you have nothing. No comfort, no stability, and most definitely no future. 

    A day in the life of a sex worker: Here's what we really get up to

    Of course, not all relationships start without trust – often the trust has been ruined and therefore it has to be rebuilt again. But sadly, sometimes it’s just far too broken to fix.

    If you can move on from broken trust and get it back, that’s brilliant. But it’s not so easy for everyone. No matter how hard you try, those feelings of unease… Read the full story

    We all have insecurities.

    You know what’s not helping to reassure us all that these ‘flaws’, whether it’s stretchmarks, cellulite, or butt dimples, are totally normal?

    A wedding to remember: Six wedding guests turn up in the same lace dress

    The fact these little things stay hidden. They’re edited out in adverts, cropped out on our Instagram, and faded with artsy filters.

    Every time someone actually shares those insecurities, it’s a powerful reminder to everyone hiding theirs away that they’ve got nothing be ashamed of. It’s a small act, but an important one.

    But guess what: You’re not cool.

    Having a baby is, mostly, great.

    What’s not so great, however, is the loneliness and isolation that sometimes comes with being a new mum.

    What are ‘Mum Friends’?

    You are accompanied everywhere by a minor on a never-ending eat, sleep and poop cycle.

    You are not great company, and your childless friends know it. They honestly don’t understand and that’s why you need new mum friends (though it’s funny how you never hear men talk about getting dad friends).

    ‘Where can I find these yummy mummies?’ I hear you ask.

    Mother and baby activity groups of course.

    These are… Read the full story

    Most vegans will probably admit one thing from the animal product world that they miss dearly.

    10 sure signs you simply don't trust your partner

    I have two. They are halloumi and poached eggs.

    A nice, runny poached egg with its yolk cascading down my avocado on toast, a side of hash browns, and halloumi?

    Give me a moment. *Has food fantasy*

    Sure, there are questionable vegan halloumi and vegan scrambled egg products on the market, but replicating an actual, real-life, boiled egg?

    It’s never been done before. Until now.

    If you haven’t worked it out by now, let us spill the big secret.

    Today’s beauty trends aren’t really about looking good in real life. They’re just for taking a cool pic for Instagram and raking in all the double taps.

    Boohoo's snake-embroidered trainers are £420 cheaper than Gucci's originals

    Squiggle brows and the pen manicure might have given it away.

    So we’re not at all surprised that the latest beauty look to pop up on social media includes some a very real risk of poking out your eye if you were to actually try it… Read the full story

    If you were planning on trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru next year, then you’d better get a wriggle on.

    Woman opens up about why she's done hiding her psoriasis

    Permits for the trail are being released on 1 October – four months earlier than usual.

    Only 500 permits are allowed for each day of the year, and only 200 of these are given to hikers – the rest are for guides and porters.

    The first wave of permits is usually issued in January of the same year, with the rest released in February, but things are changing for 2018,… Read the full story

    Wish I had known so many things (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    It’s December 2003. I’m at a house party, upstairs in a bedroom with a guy I’ve fancied for ages. He gently closes the door and smiles at me, and I know: tonight is the night I’m going to lose my virginity.

    I was 17 and I wasn’t desperate to ‘pop my cherry’ (and ew, that phrase is vile) so much as start having sex.

    sex toys
    It doesn’t always go according to plan (Picture: Dave Anderson for Metro.co.uk)

    Most of the time, sex toys do what it says on the tin: they give us an orgasm.

    They also allow us to explore our bodies and experiment with partners.

    Here’s what it’s really like to work in a sex shop

    But sometimes, they can be a source of blush-worthy blunders.

    My first encounter with a sex toy happened when my mates, having decided that my 18 years of virginity were apparently foreshadowing a promising career as a nun, took action by gifting me a vibrator, uRead the full story

    A lesson to anyone who doesn’t live alone: make sure your products are packaged accurately… unless you’re trying to catch a food/toiletries/makeup thief.

    Let Kiera and her mum, Kerrie Henderson be an example of why this is so important.

    Mum Kerrie ended up accidentally looking ‘like a crabstick’ thanks to a mixup with some hair products.

    Kerrie was taking a bath and washing her hair when she reached for what she thought was a bottle of conditioner.

    You can see where this is going, right?

    Turns out that the ‘conditioner’ Kerrie… Read the full story

    Okay, so you’re either pregnant, thinking about having a baby, or you’ve adopted a cat. Whichever option, you’ll need a name.

    You want a cool name. One that’s trendy, that won’t annoy your parents, and won’t get your child/cat made fun of when they go to school.

    So it makes sense to have a browse through the most popular names right now, either to choose a safe, well-liked option, or to avoid the list entirely just to make sure you name your sprog something unusual.
