Money, money, money: so often one of the deciding factors when it comes to booking a holiday – unless, of course, you have the sort of ‘blow it all’ mentality that sees you spend your life savings on a trip to Magaluf.
Let’s make sure you don’t do that.
In one way or another, you are going to fork out a sizeable chunk to get out of the country and enjoy some sun for a week.
However, there are some locations where your pounds will go a lot further.Designer creates home in the desert made out of… Read the full story

Can we take a moment to applaud Gretchen Byrne?Policewoman has rescued and rehomed more than 60 cats and kittens
When she’s not fighting crime, policewoman Gretchen fills her time with rescuing cats. She’s saved more than 60 cats and kittens so far.
‘Everyone knows me as the cop that loves cats,’ says Gretchen. ‘If I’m not working, this is what I’m doing.’
Gretchen started out her cat-saving mission two years ago, when she began feeding stray cats while she was out on patrol.
She’d spotted cats scavenging for scraps in the back… Read the full story

In 2015, I launched my campaign Scarred Not Scared with a bikini photo, putting my scars on show for the first time.My history of self-harm has left me with scars – but I see them as a mark of my survival

Those of you with a sweet tooth, brace yourselves.

By now, we should know that depression is more than just a head-based thing.
It can lead to some very physical symptoms, from fatigue and nausea to migraines and insomnia.Clumpy eyelashes are making a comeback and our eyes are itching already
One new study, though, has proven that the impact our mental health has on our physical self is more drastic than previously thought – in some cases, it can even be fatal.
Researchers at the University of Grenada have proven that depression affects the entire body.
Analysing 29 previous studies, they found depression severely altered the body’s detoxifying functions –… Read the full story

When you’re a woman doing anything on the internet, it’s a sad fact that you’re going to get some nasty comments.
Messages detailing exactly what a man named Jeffrey would like to do to your body, whether it’s sexual or violent or both.
Comments pointing out the tiniest flaw, or just shouting out someone’s opinion on your appearance, because apparently that’s a reasonable thing to do.Depression has been proven to be bad for your physical health

Wetherspoon’s is a bizarrely polarizing brand – loved by plenty, looked down on by many and grudgingly tolerated by others.
Few are apathetic to the ever-growing chain of pubs; Spoons has its haters, its apologists, its regulars and its fans. I consider myself a fan, bordering on, but not quite, a super-fan.Please don't blind yourself with cheap contact lenses this Halloween
The so-called ‘perfect’, Photoshopped imagery we’re bombarded with every day has long been a source of ire for body positive campaigners.Living with a stoma bag isn't miserable - it gives you a new lease of life
Touching up the odd spot or line here or there is one thing, but as image technologies have progressed, so too have the liberties taken with the bodies of photography models.
Completely reworking an image to portray a wildly different body shape is a common practice – worse still, half the time these body shapes are entirely unrealistic, or anatomically impossible.

To be totally honest, I don’t get the Halloween thing.
Once you’re old enough to buy sweets as and when you deem it necessary, the excitement of a holiday which is entirely centered around getting E numbers seems a bit juvenile.All women deserve access to sex toys - even in poverty
But I appreciate that I was born looking like a baby but with the soul of an angry old man, most comparable to Jack Whitehall’s dad, and other people like to go out on Halloween, and they like to dress up.

As we told you yesterday, Poundland is releasing a range of sex toys which, as you can probably imagine, cost £1. The news hasn’t exactly been elevated to breaking status. It’s a funny story. A light story. It’s no big deal.

You may not have heard of Real Skin Patch, but you’ll have seen it in use all over Instagram.
It’s that stuff that’s meant to magically make your foundation peel off, that got loads of attention after Raye Boyce horrified us all by peeling off her makeup like a scary witch.*
*That’s not an insult to Raye – peeling off skin is a bit creepy whoever’s doing it.
On Instagram it’s shown as a magical way to keep all the damaging bits of makeup out of your pores, working as a smooth primer for acne-prone skin and easily peeling off at the end of the day.
But is it really as incredible as the videos on… Read the full story
