You know what’s more stressful than wedding planning?

Having to call the whole thing off.

That’s right, the girl writing a series in the run up to her wedding didn’t even make it down the aisle.

Life can be a bit of shithead, can’t it?

Without going into too much depth; it was a very sudden and unexpected breakup.

After it all crashed and burned, I was left wading through the shrapnel of my life, trying to make sense of it all.

You’ll probably know Chontel Duncan as that super-fit mum and fitness model who managed to have toned abs while pregnant.

metro illustrationsHow a guy acts during a pregnancy scare tells you everything you need to know

She drew some controversy for working out while pregnant (which she’s entirely free to do) and for sharing a bunch of photos of her in incredible shape post-giving-birth, with many suggesting she was placing unfair pressure on other mums to do the same.

But let’s be clear: Just because her Instagram shows off Chontel’s toned pregnancy tum, that doesn’t mean she had a… Read the full story

We pick a 5k nearby, we get our trainers ready, and then, well, we don’t actually do it. Because we are deeply lazy people and need some extra motivation to run anywhere for any amount of time.

The answer: Making sure whatever you’re letting go of goes to someone who will truly appreciate it, getting as much cash as you can to soothe the pain, and writing a great advert on Gumtree to get some promotion and make sure people understand how much giving up said object means to you.

I tried spinning for the first time yesterday. 

Can you catch an STI from spinning?

At least, I tried proper spinning for the first time. I’ve gone along to my local gym and cheerfully pedaled away while a slightly paunchy middle aged man played Taio Cruz and manually flicked the lights on and off.

This was a different kettle of fish. The whole special shoes that clip on to the bike and wondering if I’m having a heart attack nine yards. And as I pedaled away, wondering if the… Read the full story

Of course, it can take practice for people to learn this, but when you do master the art of oral sex you’ll never look back.

The first time I had a pregnancy scare it was the second week of the first year at university.

My new friend (now an old friend and erstwhile bridesmaid) had walked 45 minutes each way with me to find somewhere which would sell me a pregnancy test. She’d then sat with me while I psyched myself up to take the test, and lit me a celebratory cigarette when it only displayed one line.

Fish-free dining (Picture: Instagram)

The Great British dish: fish and chips.

Something that us vegans have to go without.

London’s first weekly vegan market opens this month

That was until tofish – that’s fish made from tofu, obviously – became a thing.

This dish shows that tofu doesn’t need to be bland and tasteless and that you don’t need to miss out on your favourite flavours when you go vegan.

Other fish replacements include aubergine and sea kelp.

Even if you haven’t missed fish then just getting chips from the chippy can be a nightmare.

Many will cook the fish and any other animal products in the same oil… Read the full story
