Autumn is coming, which means we’re currently preparing ourselves for pumpkin-inspired everything.

Renting rights: can you be evicted for getting pregnant?

We started things off by writing about these amazing pumpkin spice bath bombs, perfect for making you feel basic in the bath.

And now, Kit Kat is jumping on the pumpkin-themed bandwagon, with their new Pumpkin Pie chocolate bars.

Sticking with their signature style, the Kit Kats feature two wafer fingers – but to spice things up a little, the Nestle brand have added in a pumpkin pie-flavoured creme between the wafers, and topped them off with a pumpkin pie… Read the full story

Is the Ouai dry shampoo foam worth the faff?

If your childhood holidays were anything like mine, you spent your days chilling with Rory the Tiger at a Haven Holidays park, before having dinner with your family and grabbing an ice cream before you went back to lay your weary head in your chalet/static caravan/weird tent.

Every family had an iced treat of choice – for dad, it was a Cornetto. For my brother, it was a Twister. For… Read the full story

There is nothing quite like the summer holidays to make all city-based parents reconsider their decision to raise their family in London.

However, there is much to be said for the big smoke as a base, from the multiple green spaces to the spectrum of cultural activities at your finger tips.

When was the last time you did a poo?

This morning? Yesterday? A few days ago?

If you’re in the latter category then you may well be suffering from a little thing called backed up bowels, or as the medical professionals like to call it – constipation.

A recent survey by the American Gastroenterological Association revealed that 16% of Americans (and a whopping third of those aged over 60) suffer from chronic constipation, which is classed as passing less than three bowel movements a week.

(Picture: HotSpot Media)

Beatriz Pugliese hasn’t always been confident in her body.

The 22-year-old was born with giant congenital melanocytic nevus, a skin condition that leaves her more than 80% of her skin covered in dark patches and spots.

Pet owners in China are giving their furry friends acupuncture

When Beatriz was born with the condition, her birthmark was so large that doctors weren’t sure how to treat her.

She was referred to the Hospital das Clinicas, where, throughout the years, she underwent more than 30 surgeries to remove some of her darker patches.

Beatriz had her first surgery at just six months old.

The patches weren’t being… Read the full story

Short people have it tough, we didn’t ask for our height. It just so happened that we stopped growing, and that was that for us.

As if being short doesn’t have its own issues like always have to taper trousers, or climbing worktops to reach the highest shelf, you also have to deal with the ignorance of others when they decide to use you as an armrest.

Should we worried about our vaginas getting ‘depression’?


Last week various news sources told us that vagina depression was a thing. 

You might remember vaginal depression from an episode of Sex and the City where Charlotte admits that she’s never looked at her own vagina in a mirror.

Woman shares how she's learned to love her birthmark after bullies called her a 'monkey'

But far from being just a story line in a TV show, vaginal depression, or to give it a more technical (and scary) term, vaginal atrophy, is something that can actually happen.

Most women are pretty fond of their bits and the idea of them getting depression is a bit worrying. So we spoke to Nick Panay, a spokesperson for the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecology about whether we can really suffer health complications if we don’t have enough sex.

So, what actually is vaginal depression or atrophy?

What your school shoes said about you

It’s almost September, which we all know means school shoes. 

Nude blogger fires back at Instagram after they finally reactivate her account

Or rather, having a screaming row with your mum in your local Clarks because she doesn’t understand you, or how important this is, and she wants you to be a massive loser who has no friends because she’s jealous of you for being young.

Also these are all shoes for girls because I went to all girl school and am a girl.

Let’s all just embrace our inner snakes


My love of Taylor Swift has been well documented so I won’t waste valuable words telling you about how she’s the best thing ever to happen to humanity. 

Instead, I shall explain what we can all learn from her, or rather her masterful adoption of the snake motif.

Aloe App is a new self-care app that will totally change your life

A snake, according to the dictionary, is a reptile. But according to Urban Dictionary, a far more important source, it’s also a ‘scamming backstabber. Someone who does something just to get something out of it.’

Urban Dictionary goes on to further define the term snake thus:

We all know somebody who is a doubletalker, a gossip and a generally untrustworthy person. They are cruel to their enemies and even meaner to their friends – only with the friends the mean streak only comes out when their backs… Read the full story

You can now buy panties for your pillow so you can dream you’re snoozing on a thicc butt

Forget what Cornershop said about bosoms.

What everyone really needs, is a thicc butt for a pillow.

But sadly, when we try to slumber on the closest bums we can find, the owner of said bum tends to protest.

‘I’m not at all comfortable,’ they say. ‘Please stop trying to use parts of my body as cushioning for your head.’

So alas, we struggle. We rest our heads on plain old pillows, dreaming of butts and their comforting embrace.

Well, no more. We may not be able to have an actual hiney… Read the full story

Study suggests that women actually have more stamina

(Picture: Getty)

Good news gals, we’ve (apparently) got more stamina than blokes. 

According to a new study recently published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, while men are often physically stronger than women, women might well have more stamina than men. Which probably won’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who has seen a woman go through labour.

9 reasons your partner isn't initiating sex

Now, to be fair, it’s a very small study so we can’t speak in absolutes, but it’s certainly an interesting piece of research.

Can revenge ever make you happy?

(Picture: Getty/metro.co.uk)

Taylor Swift is out for revenge.

On Kanye, on Kim, on Katy.

How will she enact her revenge? Through reclaiming the snake, making subtle mentions of Kanye’s titled stage, and declaring she doesn’t like people. But also that the old Taylor is DEAD.

That’ll show ’em.

Cafe introduces 'Guy Tea' for men whose masculinity is too fragile for macarons

Perhaps her revenge will go up a few scales in the month ahead. Perhaps Taylor will sneak salt in Kanye’s coffee, or swap Katy’s shampoo with hair removal. You know, all the classic revenge stuff.

But while the revenge/clapback/reclamation tactic is likely a good… Read the full story
