The joy and elation of motherhood can quickly turn to the realisation that breastfeeding isn’t as easy as you think.
Breastfeeding has so many health benefits and can help a mother bond with her newborn but, unfortunately, it takes hard work commitment and some foresight to breastfeed with no complications.8 things you'll know if you're on benefits

When Rosa and Russo got married back in 1957, they didn’t think to have pictures taken.Boohoo has released a super cheap makeup range
Hiring a photographer was seen as an unnecessary expense, and they were on a budget.
Rosa’s grandfather prepared the garden where the couple tied the knot. Her aunt made the cake. Her godmother sewed the dress. It was a simple ceremony that was all about love, not extravagance.
But 60 years, nine children, 16 grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren later, it seemed a shame that Rosa and Russo didn’t have a single photo of the day they got married.

When it comes to razors and deodorants, it’s always worth buying mens.A man ate only potatoes for a year and lost 110lb
For some reason, male razors and deodorants are just better quality, more powerful and yet, somehow, cheaper.
PhD student Jo Thor noticed recently that in Superdrug (who we usually like, after they made the sensible choice about lowering the cost of the morning after pill) lady razors were considerably more expensive than man razors.
In fact while a pack of 10, single bladed, orange Bic razors cost £1, the packet of almost identical, pink (of course) single bladed razors was… Read the full story

When I first lost my hair, it felt like the end of the world.
I was 34 years old, shooting a television programme in Las Vegas.
I got in the shower one evening to wash my hair, and by the time I’d finished, my hair was floating in a puddle of water around my ankles.14 things you only know if you have alopecia

They’re two friends from Nashville who are moving in together at Southern Methodist University in Texas this fall (yeah, Americans share dorm rooms, FYI).Girls transform dorm into outrageously plush pad that'll put your bedroom to shame
But they had to do something about the extremely generic dorm they were going to live in.
Luckily for the pair, Sarah’s mom’s an interior designer, and helped them completely deck it out to absurdly-plush levels.
Meredith told Metro US: ‘You can make your dorm look great on any budget. We got lucky on finding some really awesome deals for our room that we would’ve never been able to afford otherwise.
‘The best thing about shopping for your dorm is that all of the costs are split right down the middle! It makes planning a little tricky, but it’s nice to have another person helping pay for… Read the full story

A new hepatitis C drug costing ‘just’ £2,000-a-month for 18 months (£36,000) was ‘launched’ on the web with a fancy video and young people showing off the new ‘exclusive’ drug to cure hepatitis C.
Only available to British people, the ‘launch’ of ‘Just C’ was accompanied by a video with yellow fluid dripping down young people’s legs and out of their noses and mouths.
Hepatitis C affects around 215,000 people in the UK, the NHS says. The health service has been roundly criticised for ‘rationing’ the drugs to only 10,000 people as it is so expensive.
‘Some say £35,000 for our medicine is a lot of money,’ a Just C statement says.
