A moment, please, for the general coolness of this wedding.

Fancying a 'curvy' woman doesn't make you a hero, so stop acting like one

Maddie is a roller derby enthusiast. You know, that sport made popular by Whip It, that features people racing around a track on skates, passing members of the other team, and aggressively smacking down anyone who gets in your way.

Matt likes BMX. That’s the one with bikes.

Maddie and Matt met at a skate park, and found they had more in common than a love of wheels and a shared first initial.

Sparks flew, they fell in love,… Read the full story

You probably haven’t heard of super cool plant-based restaurant By Chloe.

But trust us, if you mention it to a vegan living in New York, they’ll excitedly yammer on about the portobello meatball burger and tempeh noodles.

In the US, By Chloe is a big deal.

Ultra cool vegan restaurant By Chloe is coming to London

It’s a casual, fast-food style restaurant where everything on the menu is entirely vegan and plant-based (meaning it’s pretty blimmin’ healthy). Having first opened in Manhattan two years ago, the brand has since expanded to restaurants all over the US.

And now, it’s coming to the UK. London, to… Read the full story

It’s the best day of the year!

No, not Christmas – though that’s a close second.

The age a bloke sees porn for the first time affects how he treats women

4 August is International Beer Day, a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin celebration of hops, barley and water that oh-so-conveniently falls on a Friday this year. Pub, anyone?

It’s also the perfect excuse to put away your pint of and delve into a whole new universe of boozy fun – below, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best beers from (almost) every country.

Three-year-old Leo mistakes tampons for batteries, shoves them in his toy car

An easy mistake. (Picture: Heather Leroux)

Look, until you learn about periods (and for many boys, this won’t happen until well into adulthood, when they still won’t entirely understand how menstruation works), tampons and pads are mysterious things.

Roller derby lover skates down the aisle at her wedding

If you stumble across a period product without explanation, they’re fairly confusing.

What could these little sticks of cotton be for? Where does this pad go?

So we can understand how three-year-old Leo made a simple mistake: Shoving two non-applicator tampons in his toy car, then being quite confused as to why his car wasn’t moving.

Poundworld is now selling Yankee Candle dupes and they look promising

If you’re an avid collector of candles, you’ll know that Yankee Candles are the most popular.

We're convinced this female bodybuilder is actually Jennifer Lopez in disguise

This is pretty much because they are pretty, and their line offers almost every scent under the sun.

However, the only issue with Yankee is that they come with a hefty price tag. With the largest candles costing upwards of £25, they’re generally bought for special occasions – Christmas, birthdays, and all that jazz.

Of course, we’d like to purchase a new Yankee Candle every month – but for many, it’s simply not possible under that price tag.

For many women, the hen party is one of the biggest events in lead up to the wedding. 

Newcastle bar responds brilliantly to a message from a controlling boyfriend

And so it should be. A hen party isn’t just an excuse for a bunch of women to get completely wasted with each other (well, it isn’t the only excuse)  – it’s a time where the bride-to-be comes together with all of her closest female friends and family in celebration of what will be one truly magical day.

Sure, there’ll be alcohol flowing, ‘bride-to-be’ sashes and probably some blown up penises, but that’s totally… Read the full story

Look, the sun may have only just disappeared, and it may still be August and therefore technically ‘summer’… but it’s time.

Fancying a 'curvy' woman doesn't make you a hero, so stop acting like one

It’s time to start planning for Christmas.

Don’t panic, though – the presents and the party-planning can wait. Hell, so can the food. Let’s talk booze.

In an attempt to jazz up the traditional mulled wine and mince pies of the pre-festive snack-a-thon that is December, ASDA have upped the ante.

As part of their new Christmas range, the supermarket giant will be selling mulled gin. That’s right.

Labor day 2017 is on Monday 4 September, and is always celebrated on the first Monday in September in the United States.

The public holiday in the US was originally organised to celebrate the strength of the labour unions and their contribution to the United States’ economy.

It’s a classic trope of the ‘gap yah’ crew, but Tinder has had enough.

International Beer Day: Here's a beer for (almost) every country

Amidst a sea of cultural appropriation, sexist creeps and frankly awful attempts at chat-up lines, Tinder has taken steps to crack down on one of the most prevalent displays of simple-mindedness on the dating platform: selfies with endangered animals.

They’re everywhere, these men and women posing with entrapped wild animals, presumably while on their travels.

In a new message posted to their website, though, Tinder have bitten back.

‘Posing next to a king of the jungle doesn’t make you one,’ they write.… Read the full story

No relationship is sunshine and orgasms all the time. Things happen; circumstances change; life gets tough.

So how do you distinguish between a bump in the road and a seething, loveless volcano? An average argument can make you feel as distant, bored and resentful as a full-on relationship fall-out.

If you’ve logged into Twitter in the last 24 hours, you’ll have seen the controversy surrounding Robbie Tripp and his wife Sarah.

He ‘courageously’ wrote a viral Instagram post about Sarah, complaining about how he was teased for liking curvy women, and said even though her body ‘won’t be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan’ he loves her anyway. What a trooper!

Mad about Manchester (Picture: Getty/Facebook)

There are undoubtedly plenty of great places to be a student in the UK.

8 reasons Manchester is one of the best places in the UK

From close-knit campus-based settings, to sprawling inner-city metropolises, there are countless options out there for any prospective undergraduate.

Personally though, and I say this with a complete unapologetic bias, I can’t imagine anywhere better than Manchester to spend your student years.

Like many more before me, I came to Manchester to study and have lived here ever since.

Here’s why Manchester is such a great place to be a student:

And the best bit is, it’s down to cat pics.

The man in question, Robbie Tripp, attracted the full might of a global internet storm when he wrote a lengthy post on Instagram about how he manages to be attracted to his ridiculously good-looking wife.

He reckons this is a remarkable feat to pull off, given that she has a fairly normal body shape. Well done,… Read the full story

‘Sexual side effects’ – in this day and age, with so many prescription medications floating around, it’s hard to avoid the vague, ominous-sounding phrase.

However, as familiar as ‘sexual side effects’ have become as a concept, many still remain unclear as to exactly what they are, what medications cause them, and what to do about them.
