This is seven-and-a-half months pregnant Charisha Gobin.

She claims to have been kicked out of a steakhouse for wearing a crop top that revealed her baby bump.

Charisha says that she tried to go for a meal at the Buzz Inn Steakhouse in Seattle with her family, wearing a long skirt and crop (as shown in the picture above).

However, when she arrived at the eatery, she says she was refused entry on the grounds that she’d violated their ‘no shoes, no shirt, no service’ policy – despite actually wearing a… Read the full story

We all love a good soap.

There’s nothing like jumping in the shower of a morning and having a good rub down with a soap that smells delicious. One who’s scent really resonates with us, makes us feel happy to be alive.

You can now get a Yorkshire pudding-based pizza and it looks incredible

And now all of us can enjoy a good soaping that is unique to us – thanks to the Whiskey River Soap Co.

They’ve brought out a range of soaps for everyone.

You’ve finally got yourself an SO.

You’re so happy, so loved up, so smug.

Everything you need to know about what's going to be at Lush this Christmas

Sure, they’re on their phone a lot of the time but hey, they’re just a popular millennial with an active social media life. More fool you for chirpsing someone Insta-famous.

And then you take a sneak peak over their shoulder and see that they’re actually busy swiping right on Tinder.

What the actual fu…?

But you’re not alone, because a third of Brits are apparently still active on dating apps when they’re in relationships.

In today’s WTF news, we have an eBay seller who’s clearly having a bit of a skin tone Pantone meltdown.

35% of us in relationships are still regularly using dating apps

I’m sure you don’t need us to spell it out to you, but people come in many different colours.

The wonderful human organ that is skin comes in many shades of white, brown, beige and black.

The plethora of shades explains why so many women (like myself) struggle to find the right colour foundation.

This particular eBay seller, however, thinks there are only two skin tones… Read the full story

All of us Peaky Blinders fans are so excited at the thought of seeing Cillian Murphy back on our screens, especially as it’s expected to happen before the end of this year.

Adidas have just brought out a pair of vomit-and-beer repellent trainers

But it seems nobody’s quite as excited as one man, who’s actually opened a Peaky Blinders-inspired bar in Devon.

37-year-old Jamie Somerset is hoping to open the doors to his new Peaky Blinders Bar and Grill, in Paignton, Devon, on 16 September, to give customers a real feel of what it’s like to be a Peaky Blinder.

Jamie told Metro.co.uk that the… Read the full story

Many of us buy lunch on the go, and so investing in a lunchbox is totally out of the question.

These tights will give you the mermaid legs you always dreamed of

However, if you’re one of those people who prefer to save money with a homemade sandwich than spending over a fiver in Pret, Topshop has just started selling a new lunchbox – well, lunch-bag – but it’ll cost you more than two weeks worth of homemade lunches.

The high street store has just started selling brown paper lunch bags, much like the ones Bart Simpson… Read the full story

The squiggle trend has so far divided beauty-fanatics far and wide.

While some are all for the wavy look, others can’t quite understand why there’s any need for it.

In case you’ve been living under a rock these past couple of months, the squiggle trend first started with brows that had been shaped to look like miniature waves ready to be surfed on.

The look is perfected by using washable PVA Glue to flatten the eyebrow hair in one direction before using concealer, setting and pressed powders to hide… Read the full story

Not all break ups are acrimonious maelstroms of fury and F-bombs.

Sometimes, relationships end and you both know it’s right – the hard work, time and tears couldn’t fix it and you both have to walk away.

15 signs you’re no longer in love (and it’s probably time to move on)

These sorts of endings make it hard to know where to pitch your emotions: you know it’s for best, so why are you laughing one moment and crying in your pyjamas, spooning Nutella from the jar, the next?

It’s complex, and… Read the full story

The sun finally seems to be setting on size zero fashion.

Two of the biggest luxury fashion powerhouses have finally agreed to stop using underweight and underage models for their catwalk shows and campaigns.

LVMH and Kering, who collectively own Gucci, Saint Laurent, Vuitton and Dior, will no longer be using size zero (UK size four) models.

Promising ‘to ensure the wellbeing of models’, they’re also going to ban the hiring of under-16s for photoshoots and shows where they’re supposed to be representing adults.

If they want to be hired by the houses, models will… Read the full story

Marmite – supposedly you either love it or you hate it.

But is that really true? What about those people who say they *gasp* genuinely are indifferent?

Well, luckily, there’s a scientific study that has come to sort things out once and for all.

Over the past 12 months, Marmite has been working with DNAFit (one of the UK’s leading genetic centres) to conduct a clinical trial to determine once and for all if there’s… Read the full story

If you’d like to feel less intelligent, I would strongly suggest trying to help out with a child’s homework.

‘How hard could it be?’ you cheerfully ask yourself as you settle down. ‘I’m a functioning adult who keeps themself alive on a day to day basis and has an actual job. Surely I could manage some year 5 homework?’

Good luck to you. Fractions, long division, grammar: it’s hard. Really, really hard.

In order to prove just how much your brain has probably perished since you were in Key Stage 2, Ryman put together a quiz, testing your ability to answer questions that an 11 year old child would be required… Read the full story

Listen up YouTube fanatics, because Zoella has released a lifestyle advent calendar.

Forget the prosecco, rum, and gin calendars which, while all sound amazing, are pretty short-lived each morning (unless you plan on getting through the entire calendar in one day, that is).

Zoella’s calendar is a present in its own right.  And everyone knows that Christmas is made that little bit less stressful when you get to treat yourself as well as your friends and family.

If you want no-nonsense parenting advice, Mumsnet is the place to go.

Specifically, the AIBU forum, where parents pose the question: ‘Am I being unreasonable?’ and other site members give them feedback ranging your YANBU (you are not be unreasonable) to YABVU (you are being very unreasonable).

One parent who might be regretting her contribution is the user who posted a question about whether it was okay that she hates the way in which her daughter dresses. She writes:

Last week, Joseph Keith III (what a name!) and Stephanie Hughes got married at Planet Fitness in Cincinnati, Ohio, where their eyes first met over a field of cross trainers.

We’re entering a golden era of ethnic diversity in fashion and beauty.

Rihanna’s Fenty line is going to cater for women of all colours. Kahmune’s brought out a range of nude shoes for every skin tone.

Both industries are slowly waking up to the fact that non-white women do occasionally wear makeup and want to wear nice clothes.

Everyone’s skin tone is nice and cool and deserves being catered for.

Except one brand seems to have taken that concept to a bizarre place.

A third of Brits haven’t tried a new sexual position with our partner in more than a year, according to research from ONE condoms, and 16% of us NEVER change positions during sex.

I think we’re supposed to be shocked by this research. But actually, I think it’s great news. It’s news which suggests that people have realised that twisty-turny-pretzle sex is not anyone’s friend.

Back in the day, women’s magazines used to feature a ‘position of the month’ with diagrams or barbies to illustrate how… Read the full story
