Shake it, baby (Picture: Wiebke Haas)

If you were looking for photos of horses tossing their manes then you’ve come to the right place.

German photographer Wiebke Haas takes photos of animals for a living and we can see why.

Her knack of capturing horses is incredible, but it’s her photo set of horses majestically throwing around their (sometimes) perfectly coiffed manes that has got our attention.

Called Horsestyle, the set has been shortlisted for a 2018 Sony World Photography award (winners announced on 19 April).

Set to a black background, her images are dramatic, yet beautiful.

All I’m saying is that I was one of these horses, I’d have changed my profile pic on all… Read the full story

First of all, decide on what it is you’re looking for.

We all love an unintentional vagina.

ASOS’s accidental vagina dress is a thing of beauty. The same goes for one bakery’s geode cakes.

Now we discover that if you squish a Reese’s peanut butter cup in just the right way, it ends up looking quite a bit like a vagina (or vulva, if we’re being specific).

This life-changing bit of information comes courtesy of Reddit’s Sh*ttyFoodPorn section, although we’d actually say as food porn goes, this is pretty strong.

Just when you thought our love for avocados was starting to wane, another guac-centred initiative opens.

Last month, a luxury hotel held a four-week avocado festival. This month, we bring you news that an avocado museum is opening.

The Cado is coming to San Diego in June, and will be celebrating all things avocado.

Yep, 6,700 square foot of pop-up, stony fruit madness.

It’ll be spread across 16 shipping containers and aims to capture every facet of the avocado and its place in contemporary society.

As you’d expect from a space dedicated to the millennial fruit of choice, it’ll be super-Instagrammable. Cado will have a 100-ft long ombre hallway designed to… Read the full story

Puma threw a ‘council estate drug dealing’ inspired party and people aren’t happy

(Picture: visionarism/Instagram)

Puma is being taken to task for throwing a party inspired by council estate drug dealing.

The sports brand held a ‘House of Hustle’ party in Soho last week, where guests were sent Puma shoe boxes stuffed with fake £50 notes and dodgy-looking business cards telling them ‘turn on the trap line’.

(Trapping meaning selling and dealing drugs…trap line meaning your dealer phone).

They’d each been sent a ‘burner’ phone which came with a pre-uploaded message saying ‘Yo G what u sayin today? Pass tru the House of Hustle’.

The trap house, put together with the help of Urban Nerdz marketing agency, was covered in graffiti, blacked out windows and dirty mattresses strewn… Read the full story

Finally, someone’s made sanitary pads that come in smaller sizes for younger girls

An assortment of bettypads
bettypads come in four sizes (Picture: betty)

Period positive brand betty has launched sanitary pads for adolescents that fit them and their growing bodies.

They come in different sizes for girls ages 8-16, to accommodate different sized bodies, which means a girl aged eight won’t have to deal with a cumbersome adult-sized pad.

Bettypads come in four different sizes – 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 and 14+.

If you’re not sure which size you need, betty offers a free fit box so you can try them on. Winning.

Each pad has wings to keep them secured to underwear, and they’re made with a organic bamboo top layer and a super-absorbent organic cotton core.

Another day, another strange and wonderful brow trend.

Anyone else wishing the next one will be purposefully straggly brows that require no plucking or grooming of any description?

In 2018 alone we’ve had garden brows, bow brows, halo brows, and heartbeat brows.

So really, chain brows aren’t too out of the ordinary.

Popularised by Chuni Zahedi, chain brows – or the brow chain, whatever you fancy calling this micro-trend – refers to sticking a fine chain underneath your eyebrows to accentuate the arch.

Think of it as applying highlighter under your arch to lift up your brows, but with a… Read the full story

Milan-based fashion brand Big Uncle has become the latest company called out for racism.

Its ‘colonialism’ collection, inspired (apparently) by the fashions of the colonial era complete with linen ‘rough like the faces consumed by the sun’, was found offensive by a lot of people.

After all… is colonisation anything to shout proudly about? Who wants to wear something that takes its inspiration from the forced labour of indigenous people?

But Big Uncle isn’t alone in this, brands are lining up at the moment to be accused of racial insensitivity one after another.
