We’ve been blessed with loads of new vegan offerings this past week.
But ya boi Zizzi has been leading the way in mainstream restaurants offering vegan food for a while – they already have a pretty decent vegan menu, and were the first UK restaurant chain to offer vegan cheese on pizzas.
And if you’re a fan of those pizzas, you’ll be a fan of this news – Zizzi are launching two brand new vegan pizzas (and a delish new vegan-friendly cocktail) today as part of their… Read the full story

Franz Jacob has several customers with autism – so he knows that they can require a little specialist treatment.
After all, barber shops can be noisy, intimidating places.
But few barbers would go as far out of their way as Franz does to accommodate clients.
A photo of him cutting an autistic boy’s hair has gone viral after he lay on the ground for his last appointment with six-year-old Wyatt Lafrenièr.
Halloween brings out the hotpants and no costume does that more than Harley Quinn.
Sweeping the Halloween craze last year was the iconic Harley Quinn look from the movie Suicide Squad, the character is played by Margot Robbie in the film and many cosplay fans rushed to find similar attire for Halloween.Are age-gap relationships inherently abusive?
Parties across the world were filled with Harley Quinns and this year the craze continues.

Oh, hey. Having a nice day? Feel like having it ruined? Read on – especially if you’re just tucking in to a slice of cake.
If you happen to be in Malaysia right now, you can get your hands on a truly delightful cake that lets you pop pimples made out of fondant.
The Cakescape is a bakery that specialises in making magical cakes decorated with faces. Faces with spots on.
Those spots are squeezable. If you squeeze them, yellow gunk comes out. LOVELY.
We’re not entirely sure what that yellow gunk is, but we believe it’s some kind of custard; to create the perfect pus-like texture.
Cake that lets you pop pimplesellencscott
Researchers at the University of Zurich have found that women are nicer and more generous than men.
If you’re thinking this sounds unlikely and also quite annoying, we’ve got you. Bear with.
The researchers discovered that male and female brains react differently to ‘prosocial’ (otherwise known as selfless) and selfish behaviours.
The brain’s rewards system, known as the stratium, releases dopamine when triggered and therefore makes us want to do some more than others, things on the basis that they will make us feel happier.
The research found that women were more likely to experience a higher level of dopamine when they did something selfless than men were.
It means that women… Read the full story

What with Pennywise sharing his creepy, toothy smile on our cinema screens since last month, it was only so long until people decided to recreate his look for halloween.
First, we saw some rather impressive IT-inspired nails. And now, he’s here in the form of a halloween costume. A sexy halloween costume, that is.
Yep, one company has added some sex appeal to the terrifying Pennywise the Dancing Clown and we’re not quite sure what to make of it.
Yandy, a US clothing company that specialises in everything from lingerie to dance gear – as well as sexy halloween costumes – has launched its very own ‘Dancing Sewer Clown’ costume that features… Read the full story
Disclosing your mental illness to the person you’re dating is important.
I’m not talking opening up about your worst days on a first date, but if you see a future with that person, it’s an important part of building trust within a relationship.
Talking about it is not easy, let alone with someone you’re interested in. For many people suffering with their mental health, they fear telling those closest to them.
I think you should be able to talk about your mental illness with the person you’re dating. Not just because it’ll be a relief for you to get it out, but because that person deserves to know.
If you’re… Read the full story

According to research by StudySoup.com, almost 15% of men believe that once sex has started, it’s not possible for a person to revoke her consent.
Just as worryingly, 12% of women reported believing the same thing.
The study asked 1,000 people a variety of questions around the topic of sex and consent. When it came to withdrawing consent, they were asked about whether someone should have the right to withdraw consent before, during and after sex.
While the majority of respondents of both genders affirmed a person’s right to withdraw consent before or during a sexual act. More than 1 in 10 respondants felt that it wasn’t possible to withdraw… Read the full story

Being a dealer is pretty risky business, and it’s one that those in the profession take seriously.
Well, at least this guy who informs his clients of his days off does, anyway.
Twitter user @_Mandieeee recently received an automated text from her dealer informing her that she wouldn’t be able to buy any weed on 13 October. Why? Because it’s her dealer’s birthday.
Yep, dealers need their days off too, y’know.
In a hilarious text message, her dealer wrote: ‘Good Evening, Happy Monday. Thank you for being a valued customer. This Friday (October 13th) I will be OFF. It is my birthday, and most likely the following Saturday morning recovering. So please leavemealone.

Whether you’re a dedicated follower of fashion, or you’re just trying to avoid the obvious trends, it’s useful to know what’s hot right now.
Some things are pretty classic. Lace and tulle will probably always have a place in bridal wear.
But other trends come and go, and while you should always go with whatever dress makes you happy, regardless of whether they’re fashionable, here are some trends you can expect to see a lot… Read the full story
Tesco is no stranger to a fancy packet of crisps.
Within its ‘Tesco Finest’ line, we’re big fans of flavours such as Barbecue Pulled Pork, Stilton & Truffle and Brie & Cranberry – with the exception of their recent addition, Candy Cane, which left us baffled.
Now, Tesco is once again stocking its famous Pigs in Blankets flavour, which has been gracing the shelves for Christmas for the past couple of years.
The 150g packet of crisps comes part of a limited-edition, festive range which we’re hoping will be around until at least a few days after Christmas – because they’ll make the perfect addition to our leftover turkey and stuffing… Read the full story

It’s always mind-blowing when people reveal clever hacks for everyday objects.
And so when one person demonstrated a totally mess-free way to drain pasta, we were pretty impressed.
Ann Wenita recently took to Facebook to reveal a pasta-draining hack that had completely blown them away.

If you spend time on social media, you’ll be no stranger to spotting people tweeting about having ‘OCD’, using the term to describe habits that are in no way related to an actual OCD diagnosis.
I’m not saying everyone who uses the term doesn’t know what it means – or that they haven’t been diagnosed with it.
But a large proportion of the people using the term are using it incorrectly – and are getting it mixed up with obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
I’ll see people calling themselves ‘OCD’ when they talk about liking the items in their cupboard lined up in a certain way. Perhaps they like their wardrobes colour-coordinated… Read the full story

Here’s our usual routine when a restaurant announces the offer of free food.
We get excited.
We take note of the day and time they’re handing out free stuff.
We promptly forget all about it until we start seeing people Instagramming deliciousness, and hate ourselves for being so bloody forgetful.
That’s not going to happen this time around. Because if we miss the first day of this particular deal, there’s always tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that.

There are a lot of dream jobs flying about these days.
And now, a company’s on the lookout for a professional pizza taster. That’s going to be a really tough job to fill.
Bath Pizza Co. has just listed a job for a pizza taster.
It’s a part-time role, requiring just two hours a week, but apparently the salary is ‘competitive with serious pizza perks’. In other words, we wouldn’t suggest quitting your job for this one if you need to spend money on things like food and rent.… Read the full story

If you grew up watching America’s Next Top Model, you’ll be familiar with Covergirl – even if you’ve never used any of their products.
You’ll remember CoverGirl as that brand all the models wanted to represent, with the tagline: ‘Easy, breezy, beautiful.’
If you’re anything like me, you have repeated this slogan in your mirror multiple times, usually when smizing into your own eyes. Sadly, you are still not a famous model. *Sigh*.
But if that CoverGirl mirror ad is something you still do (no judgement. It’s a great way to start your day), we’ve got some important news – you’ll need to make some changes to your performance.

Vegemite is a staple in many an Australian kitchen cupboard, just like our beloved Marmite here in the UK.
Its delicious (debatable) yeasty taste goes well spread atop freshly buttered slices of toast, and truly helps many Aussies slip and slide into their busy days.
Not content with being every Aussie’s fave spread, your yeasty boys have only gone and made a super fancy premium version, called Blend 17.
Blend 17 has a bolder, richer flavour and retails at twice the price of your plebby Marmite at $6.99 (£4.13) for 150g.
And it’s in a limited edition run of 450,000 jars. #fancy
