It’s made using padded fabric and features a zipped detachable blanket, cuffed sleeves, a funnel neck and a concealed zip… Read the full story

Cheryl Cole has it all – she’s a singer, she’s gorgeous, she’s a millionaire and has a loving partner and is now a mum to a cute little baby.

Outwardly, her life looks pretty damn fantastic.

Which is probably why people feel she’s fair game when it comes to slagging her off.

She won’t care, will she? What harm does it do?

Actually, probably quite a lot.

Two fellow celeb mums have come out and commented about her weight loss since she gave birth to baby Bear in March, her first child with partner Liam Payne.

Although it feels a little touch and go sometimes, we’d like to think that society is progressing a little.

And one of the key markers of that progression is the fact that people are thinking a little bit more about where the products they buy are coming from.

Organic tampons may be an ethical alternative, and some companies may donate money to worthy causes, but the jury’s out on whether or not non-organic tampons might have any negative effects on your vagina.

They’ve been a big deal for a while, actually, popping up in South Korea first before making their way to the US, then the UK, then going through all kinds of wonderful iterations ranging from panda designs to sheet masks that bubble and foam.

But with so many sheet masks on the shelves, it’s tricky to know which ones actually have legit benefits, and which ones… Read the full story

I’ve got to admit it, as someone who’s a little bit insecure about their body, I’m a massive fan of Spanx support underwear and tights. 

Is the Dr Jart rubber mask worth the faff?

They hold me in in all the right places and I never have to worry about a little bit of bloating in a tight dress. Quite frankly, they’re a lifesaver when your drink’s a rum and coke.

What I’m not so sure about however, is Spanx’s newest release. Arm tights.

16 magical lines from JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit

‘In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.’

So began JRR Tolkien’s fantasy novel, The Hobbit, widely regarded as a classic of children’s literature and adored by young and old alike.

Published on September 21, 1937, it still maintains the magic, humour and heart that made readers fall in love with it over the decades.

It probably wasn’t the cover of The Hobbit’s first edition that drew the punters in

It’s a testament to Tolkien’s story that 80 years later we’re still celebrating the home-loving hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, who – by self-admission – had ‘no use for adventures’.

As we all know, Bilbo proceeded to have the… Read the full story
