First the stunning villa from House of Gucci was listed on Airbnb; now the iconic Home Alone house is bookable, too. Well, kind of. The instantly recognisable family home, which is situated in the Chicago suburb of Winnetka, is available to rent for one night only on 12th December. It’s listed for the princely sum of $25 (£19), which means it’s a marketing stunt, but one we can’t resist because it’s connected to one of the best Christmas films ever. Airbnb has even recruited actor Devin Ratray –

3/5 Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord is under threat as her last full series stumbles to a close
There’s one thing worse than a bad first date – a bad first date where you spent more than you wanted to. It’s not just the fact you’ve “invested” in someone you’ll probably never see again, but the realisation that you could have spent that money on quality time with your friends. According to new research by Badoo, the average bad first date costs a person £47.50. On average, Badoo users said they have experienced six failed romantic connections in the last year – and if each one cost £47.50,

When you have diabetes your sex life, just like everything else, is much more complicated. Whatever type of diabetes you have, whatever your gender and whoever you choose to have sex with, intimacy comes with a number of caveats and precautions that have to be negotiated. But thanks to the persistent taboo that surrounds talking about sex, as well as a lack of understanding about diabetes, the issue is rarely discussed. As a spokesperson for Diabetes UK puts it to R29: “Many people will experien
It bears repeating: the pandemic has changed the way we approach dating in more ways than one. Since the world has tentatively opened back up, we’ve thrown caution to the wind and embraced whim-taking alongside creative, fun and joyful spontaneity in our burgeoning relationships. This practice is so popular that it has even been given a very millennial moniker: ‘spontani-dating’. “When there were a few restrictions, you had to get more creative and find different common grounds other than going

In October, Stella McCartney’s spring 2022 show opened with the voice of American mycologist Paul Stamets. It wasn’t the first time the British designer referenced fungi in her work.

A guide to what to do in the garden in December, including festive foraging and decorating, Christmas vegetables, winter maintenance and seed sowing.
How well do you know your partner? Spend every day beside someone and it’s like an unintentional study of a living, breathing subject. Their smell. The curve of their face. The way they make coffee: strong, milky, right up to the rim, as if those messy extra millilitres are the urgent divide between awake and comatose. What would happen if, one day, you realised that you didn’t know them at all? That they were a stranger. That all the perceived intimacy you had shared was just scratching the sur
