Hello baby bump!
It’s the last week of September and the first week of Mercury’s retrograde transit through Libra. But, with Mercury not only stationing retrograde just two days after Mars in Libra makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, but also just one day after the Sun in Libra makes a trine to true node in Gemini, it’s a two-steps forward, one-step back kind of dance — and a decidedly Libran one at that. The dance continues both when our last quarter moon in Cancer applies a square to the Sun in Libra, as well
Wishing her a speedy recovery ❤️
Naming your home is a great way to add character and personality
I don’t know many twentysomethings living in London who haven’t been on a date, but I’m one of them. I am engaged, though, somehow. (I know, I can’t quite believe it either.) We were friends first and, for better or worse, skipped the seemingly seminal dating chapter and dove headfirst into the comfortable laziness of love and living together. All aspects of my introversion were accelerated (and justified) by the confines of COVID-19, which washed out the dating landscape for pretty much everyon

This is not a drill: Our first look at season 2 of Bridgerton is here. The minute-long clip introduces the show’s new female lead, Kate Sharma, who is played by British actress Simone Ashley. You’ll probably recognise her as Olivia from Sex Education. In the clip, Kate gives Viscount Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) a very eloquent dressing down after seemingly hearing him talking disparagingly about women. “I take issue with any man who views women merely as chattels and breeding stock,” Kate says

Trends in baby names are fascinating because they’re constantly changing. As some names fall out of fashion, others gain in popularity, reflecting what’s going on in pop culture and lifestyle at any given time. Cottagecore-themed names have enjoyed a moment this year for this reason. So have names inspired by the Netflix hit Bridgerton. The experts at Nameberry have predicted several trends for baby names in 2022, and it definitely makes for interesting reading. Bridgerton-themed names and music
Despite being obsessed with fashion designers at an early age, I was already in my late teens when I finally learned Carolina Herrera was Venezuelan. Growing up in Puerto Rico, I had my doubts about whether Herrera was even from Latin America. Her last name was a good indicator that she was, but it somehow didn’t convince me. I asked my mum — one of her biggest fans — but she shrugged off the question with a simple “I’m not sure.” Looking back, it’s clear to me that I wasn’t really interested in

“Race is a delusion,” my friend sighed. We had been discussing passing, the act of someone from one race being accepted or perceived as a member of another, usually a marginalised race to white. After numerous anecdotes about the ridiculous race science-y tactics — gauging the slope of a nose is a popular one — that people employed to categorise others, this was our conclusion. A week later, our Twitter timelines were scattered with comments on a tantalizing trailer for Passing, a forthcoming Ne

It was tough enough to keep things tidy back when there wasn’t COVID-19 and the Delta variant to keep u
Here it is — the final Mercury retrograde of 2021. So far this year, we’ve made it through a mentally exhausting retrograde in Aquarius and a chaotic, gossip-loving retrograde in Gemini. But this time, we might be catching a bit of a break. From September 27 to October 18, the speedy planet will be doing its backwards dance in Libra, a sign known for being peaceful and harmonious — and relationship-oriented. Libra is ruled by Venus, the Planet of Love and Affection, and as a result our social li
