Are you worried that your brows are starting to look a little…basic?

Are you tired of having to fill them in and fade them out? Do you wish you had a bit of facial furniture that wasn’t identical to everyone else?

Forget McDonald's: A burger festival is happening next week

If the answer’s yes, then stop what you’re doing, grab a pencil and some tweezers and settle down.

Because apparently, the hottest way to have your eyebrows right now is in the shape of squiggly lines.

If you think you drink too much rosé, you should see how much Americans are ploughing through

Once upon a time, rosé was deemed crash, tasteless.

Brits dismissed it as an Essex Girl tipple, suitable only for downing before a night out in Faces nightclub.

But then everyone pulled their heads out of their arses and finally realised that it can be delicious.

And we’ve been supping it relentlessly ever since.

Frosé, pink champagne, rosé jelly…we’ve lost our goddamn minds in the pink haze.

If you’re worrying that you’d been drinking too much of it this summer, however, let me allay your fears by… Read the full story

ICYMI, Tooting has made it onto Lonely Planet’s ’10 Coolest Neighbourhoods’ in the world

(Picture: tootingdailyprss/Instagram)

South London has been having something of an artsy renaissance for the past few years.

It began with Brixton being gentrified out of all recognition and then spread to Peckham and Camberwell thanks to an incessant stream of resident graphic design students.

Drinking coffee might makes your pesky sugar cravings worse

But we’ve now reached the apex of this south side love-in.

Because Tooting – that odd area at the bottom of the Northern Line that up until now had been written off as social Siberia – has just been named one of the world’s top 10 ‘coolest neighbourhoods’.

In a move at odds with a sizeable portion of the global populous, my introduction to the Harry Potter universe occurred in reverse to what is typically recommended. 

Why I’ll always love Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves

As sacrilegious as it may be, I watched all of the movies before reading a single line from one of JK Rowling’s books.

I’ll pause here for a moment to let you gather your composure.

While this is undeniably an unconventional introductory route to take, it didn’t stop me enjoying the movies, for the most part.

Obviously the first two were a… Read the full story

Constance Hall proves why you shouldn’t judge women before talking to them first

We’re all guilty of writing people off before we’ve even heard them open their mouths.

It’s human nature to weigh people up and sack off those who don’t look like they’re going to mesh well with us.

If you think you drink too much rosé, you should see how much Americans get through

And no group does it better than parents.

Mums and dads are always gossiping about each other at school gates. After all, parenting is stressful and it’s easy to allay your anxieties by digging out someone else for their slovenly morning attire, their tardiness, their idiot kids.

People who work in supermarkets are usually too rushed off their feet to see what’s going on with customers.

They’re busy running between check out and aisle to check if a special offer is still special. Replacing damaged packets. Mopping up that bottle of Merlot you smashed.

10 things gluten-free people are tired of hearing

One of those things is gluten-free McDonald’s.

Why are my teeth yellow? 12 reasons your pearly whites are off-colour

(Picture: Getty)

We’ve all looked in the mirror and noticed our teeth aren’t quite the colour we’d like them to be.

Despite brushing them regularly, sometimes we’re still greeted with a mouth full of yellow teeth – and it can be frustrating.

Do we really need to brush our teeth twice daily?

Fortunately, there are many lifestyle changes you can make to try and combat this common problem, and it doesn’t usually indicate anything serious.

Here are 12 reasons your smile isn’t the radiant white gleam you’re hoping for.

Calling it a day on your relationship is always going to be tricky, and having ‘the conversation’ is something many of us will go to great lengths to avoid.

Are there any good ways to end a relationship, or will you always walk away being the baddie?

It is certainly a minefield. But the good news is, it isn’t difficult to recognise ways in which to reduce your arsehole rating.

All the outfits you need to see from the 2017 MTV VMAs Red Carpet

(Picture: Getty/Rex/metro.co.uk)

Attention, please: It’s the 2017 MTV VMAs

All the outfits you need to see from the VMAs red carpet

Usually this is an event filled with all kinds of sexual performances, drama (the ‘Miley, what’s good?’ moment AND Kanye’s ‘Imma let you finish’ rant both happened at the VMAs, FYI), and, less importantly, music.

But when musically inclined celebs are doing all of that stuff, they’ll also be wearing stuff – mostly on the red carpet, where they’ll turn up to show off their excellent style choices.

So if you’re more in to seeing what people are wearing than listening to their music, stick… Read the full story

Katy Perry is hosting tonight’s MTV VMAs awards.

All the outfits you need to see from the VMAs red carpet

That’s a big deal for many reasons (the Taylor Swift feud, the Swish Swish video, her relationship status), but it’s also the perfect opportunity for Katy to wear a sh*t-tonne of outfits.

We’re guessing she’ll do around 12 outfit changes in the hours of the show, and will be updating this article each time she changes up her look.

Her first outfit was a simple white dress, so she can only go more extreme from here.

Now, can we PLEASE spend a minute appreciating the beauty looks at this year’s MTV VMAs? They’re important.

The VMAs tend to be a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to fashion and beauty. There’s no unifying theme, and the degree of fanciness varies widely between celebs, ranging from full on ballgowns to… Read the full story

8 all you can eat deals in London that are actually good

Don’t mind if I do (Picture: Getty)

Generally speaking, anything advertised as ‘all you can eat’ is to be avoided at all costs, unless you like your dinner with a side portion of salmonella.

Afternoon Tea Week: 11 of London’s quirkiest afternoon teas

That said, London is home to quite a few little-known bottomless menus that are a) good and b) won’t make you extremely ill (unless you really go to town on it and end up having to get your stomach pumped).

How to get started on finding a private therapist


Trying to find a therapist is a lot like online dating.

You try to pick the best one based off a tiny bio and how sane they look in their photo.

It’s draining, time-consuming, and there are moments you think about giving up entirely and being alone.

But if you find the one, it’s all worth it… right?

I’ve just started my search for a therapist, after my CBT course on the NHS came to an end.

I feel like I only sorted out a tiny portion of my issues, so I’m keen to talk to someone else to keep getting better.

I started out having no clue how to find a therapist (there’s no Tinder for finding one, FYI), but after doing some asking around, Googling, and researching, I’m working it out.
