(Picture: Harvester)

Harvester has started selling its own signature sauces and we’re pretty happy about it.

10 sure signs you simply don't trust your partner

The cheap and cheerful family restaurant is somewhat of a national treasure. The meals are mostly under a tenner, there’s a great salad bar – and of course the sauce bar is fairly impressive.

So obviously we were very excited when we found out that we can now recreate the sauce bar in our own kitchens – without having to queue up before the bottles are empty.

The family pub has finally decided to market their sauces after receiving an increasing… Read the full story

A new study has revealed some interesting info about how you sleep.

Harvester is selling its own sauces so you no longer have to share with other guests

Apparently, your chosen sleeping position says a lot about you, including your age, profession and vices.

Yes, really.

Data from the 2016/17 Sealy World Sleep Census, commissioned in conjunction with Loughborough University’s Clinical Sleep
Research Unit questioned over 15,000 people from around the world (5,000 from the UK), and the results were…interesting.

Are you ready to be bemused by a bunch of data?

Here are the results from the UK respondents.

Would you trust this machine to make you a cup of tea?

Not everyone can make a cup of tea.

Sure, they try, but they often fail. Whether they’re a criminal layabout who allows the teabag fester for more than the ordained two minutes of brewing time, or they’re one of those offensive cowards who’ll remove the tea leaf pyramid before the cuppa’s contents have managed to look like anything more than semi-skimmed milk.

10 sure signs you simply don't trust your partner

Either way, tea-making skills among the chosen few should be protected as a patented art-form and honoured as such.

But of course, someone had to let a robot have a go. Cue the… Read the full story

Our relationship with our parents can be a very complex thing.

As we jostle with addressing our pals, exes and parents on one all-encompassing platform, for the vast majority of us, negotiating whether or not to accept a parental friend request is the million pound question.

As someone who has accepted my parents’ social media presence on every single platform I use, I am a frustrated negotiator of making a space my own without offending my parents.

It can take a lot of courage to step into a community centre or church hall for your first baby group.

Making friends as an adult is nothing like making friends when you were a child.

Then, you could go up to other children and just say ‘Can I play with you?’ and that meant you were BFFs.

Now, you would definitely raise a few eyebrows if you asked that at music time.

Nowadays, you don’t go to McDonald’s expecting big things from the McFlurry machine – because the bottom line is, it’s rarely ever working.

It’s a sad truth, but a truth nonetheless, and one that leaves us with a large, McFlurry-filled hole in our hearts.

But when it is working, things can go one of two ways.

And so, picture day usually means getting up extra early to fix your hair and makeup.

But at one school, students weren’t just combing their hair or applying mascara ready for their photos – they were dressing up as their favourite characters.

In the four month research period, academics writing for journal sexual health journal Contraception found that 519 women attempted to access the pills in Britain, even in areas where abortion is lawful and funded.

You may not want to admit it, but if you were born between the early 1980’s to the mid-1990’s, you, my friend, are a millennial.

This group of people was named ‘millennials’ as people realised they would be the first graduating class of 2000 – the new millennium.

We don’t know why (blame watching too much TV filled with kids having adventures with their treehouse as a base), but we can’t help getting excited about the idea of staying in a treehouse.

Should we add our parents on social media?

Pop a tiny cottage on to some branches and we’re on board – no matter how chilly or cramped it may be.

So when luxury treehouses pop up on our radar, we pretty much add them to our ‘yep, need to go there’ list immediately.

But it’s not just the rides, the entertainment and the costumes that make you never, ever want to leave the resorts – it’s the food, too.

In the past, various Disneylands have bought us the likes of Mickey Mouse-shaped beignets, wine slushies, glowing candyfloss and even a Matterhorn macaroon dessert.

And now, Shanghai’s resort is offering Mickey Mouse doughnuts to all its guests.

If you’ve ever wondered what your pores look like under a microscope, here’s your answer

Any skincare obsessive will know the anguish of looking in a magnifying mirror.

Your pores… they’re so much bigger than you thought. And they’re so full of gunk.

High school lets students dress up for their ID photos and the results are hilarious

Magnifying anything is bound to make it look a bit gross, and skin is no different.

And yet we can’t help looking. We’re a nation of porexics, obsessed with the size of our pores, the smoothness of our skin, and the grim satisfaction of squeezing out a blackhead.

So naturally, we needed to see what pores look like under a microscope.… Read the full story

Not because he’s got a really good game of Neko Atsume going, or because he’s trying to text sans opposable thumbs.
