After Stella McCartney announced she was launching her own range of spectacles, we reveal the best designer eyewear around...
The current favourite, slow-growing evergreen “jasmine” Trachelospermum jasminoides would do the job eventually, has scented flowers and is generally well-behaved. In London it is generally evergreen, but roughly one year in four a frosty wind will “get” its upper regions, turning them to black dishrags until you haul it down and lop it.
Not long ago, Kim Kardashian took to Snapchat to admit that she sometimes sleeps in her makeup in a bid to preserve it (hey, she's a busy woman), while international makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has revealed that her husband has never seen her without it – in fact, she wears eye makeup to bed every night. "Our skin cells are naturally renewed and repaired at night – the optimum time is 1am, to be precise – and healthy, new ones are produced," she says.
Joe and Stacey tell me that if we’re to Skype about their use of MDMA it has to be between 8am and 10am, after the kids leave for school and before 34-year-old Stacey leaves for her senior post at the medical school of her local university. Like everyone I spoke to for this article, they believe friends and colleagues would be shocked to know they regularly take one of Britain’s most highly classified illegal drugs on date night, but are also keen to impress how helpful they’ve found it to their relationship. “We call it our biannual marriage fire-up,” says Joe.
There really isn't an excuse not to care about where your clothes come from or not to try to shop more responsibly, especially when there are sustainable fashion retailers as good as Rêve En Vert readily available. Founded in 2013 by friends Natasha Tucker and Cora Hilts, the site, often referred to as the Net-A-Porter for sustainable fashion, offers a beautiful curation of clothing that is as well designed as it is ethically crafted. Providing a platform that is a positive alternative to fast fashion, REV showcases and promotes independent designers who carefully consider their methods.
Workers were revealed to be earning less than half the UK minimum wage, showing that the impacts of fast fashion aren’t distant but standing on our doorstep. For plus-size fashion blogger Callie Thorpe, this was a wake-up call. This is a feeling common to many of us and, as the rise in interest in ethical fashion shows, more and more of us are guiltily turning away from fast fashion.
From then on, fashion was a way to communicate things that I didn’t have the guts to say out loud. Fashion allows us to connect to each other. As a weirdo teenager, fast fashion let me feel part of a community.
Welcome to Money Diaries, where we're tackling what might be the last taboo facing modern working women: money. We're asking a cross-section of women how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period – and we're tracking every last penny.
We're already getting excited for what's about to appear on UK Netflix in May ( The Keepers!) but, as always, it's a case of out with the old and in with the new. So what is disappearing from Netflix at the end of April? (Quick! You have five days left!)
As Trump approaches the 100 day mark, his administration has received yet another blow in its efforts to deport undocumented immigrants. On Tuesday, April 25, a federal judge in California blocked Trump’s executive order on sanctuary cities. The order sought to deny federal funding to so-called “sanctuary” jurisdictions that have vowed to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation.
It’s no surprise that Emma Watson has been dubbed a role model thanks to her activism for gender equality and consistent efforts to apply feminism to every aspect of her life. Although the traits we admire about Watson may appear effortless, she admits that being labeled a “role model” comes with a great deal of pressure.
In all our years listening to her songs and watching her grow out of her Disney wizarding years, we’ve never seen Selena Gomez with short hair. Sure, Selena’s switched it up from time to time, but she doesn’t normally stray far from what she knows best: long, voluminous brown waves. At the end of last year, however, the singer ditched her long, dreamy mermaid hair for a long bob — and boy was it beautiful.
There's not a single episode of Grey's Anatomy that doesn't break our hearts, but apparently the finale is going to be particularly devastating. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Debbie Allen dropped some pretty big hints about the final episode and explained how the last moments of season 13 are going to go down. First, Alex (played by Justin Chambers) has to make a tough decision regarding Jo (played by Camilla Luddington).
In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday, Dewan Tatum explained how, exactly, her husband won her over — and the ultimatum that led him to that point. Apparently, Channing Tatum was a commitment-phobe, at least at first. Tatum apparently showed up at her hotel room three days later — wearing nothing but "a sombrero, underwear, and Ugg boots." "He said he had the chance to be free, and he couldn't stop thinking about me," Dewan Tatum told DeGeneres.
Suffice it to say, things are complicated right now between America and Russia. Russia doesn't show up at the top of bucket-list destinations, it lacks modern pop culture exports, and the most-watched TV depictions of Russian people right now are on The Americans — a fictional story about Russian spies living in suburban Virginia in the '80s.
Host James Corden announced the news with a video on Tuesday. Styles' first solo album since One Direction's split will be released on May 12. Check out the video in which Corden makes the Late Late Show announcement below.
We certainly hope that you — presumably an adult — have mastered the art of brushing your teeth. But there are plenty of other less-obvious things you can do to keep those pearly whites healthy and happy. And it all comes down to effectively managing bacteria.
Generally set at 2,500m or higher, glacier ski areas benefit from the low temperatures at altitude, especially at night, so you can expect smooth groomed runs in the morning, soft slushy bumps later on. Any glacier area worth its salt puts a lot of work into its terrain park, making up for a more limited ski area with enough kickers, rails, pipes and boarder/skicross tracks for all levels to while away several hours – and enabling you to perfect tricks in soft conditions. Can I stay out on the slopes all day?
When Sophie Ellis-Bextor gave birth to her first baby, she had been dating the father for precisely eight months. The reason for the unlikely timeline was that Sonny, conceived weeks into a whirlwind romance with fellow musician Richard Jones, arrived early. The young couple, still unpacking after setting up home together, suddenly found themselves parents to a premature baby.
Fans and foes of the Kardashian clan are reveling in untouched bikini-clad pics of Kim and Kourtney after candid photographs of the two were splashed onto the web during their Mexican getaway. Celebrating Kourtney’s 38th birthday, the sisters were accompanied by a group of girl friends as they kicked back by the sea. Both Kim and Kourtney look healthy and gorgeous in the pictures — but unfortunately for Kim, not everyone is feeling her beach body. “Kim’s butt looks crazy, it’s not even round no more, that’s the side effects of butt injections, Kourtney looks waaay better,” one spectator wrote on Twitter.
In an act of sheer, sass-filled genius, IKEA has responded to claims that Balenciaga’s tote is a take on its ubiquitous 40p Frakta carryall. To catch you up to speed: Earlier this month, we filled you in on a Balenciaga tote that looked oddly similar to IKEA’s iconic shopping bag, except for the giant price differential: the luxury label's version costs £1,705, compared to the Swedish chain's less-than-a-dollar original. Well, IKEA has responded, reasserting that their tote is, indeed, the OG giant blue tote.
On the 40th anniversary of Annie Hall 's release, I wish I could issue a gushing plea for everyone to revisit this classic film about two New Yorkers groping their way into (and out of) a relationship. Or rave about Annie Hall ’s inventive narrative structure, disrupting the traditional romantic comedy mould with cutaways, non-sequiturs, and breaks in the fourth wall. In Annie Hall, we see a couple proceed through every phase of their relationship, from having a blazingly awkward first conversation to forging intimate banter to confronting the inevitability of an end.
On the same day that her infant daughter came into the world, Keri Young had to say goodbye to her. "We said hello and goodbye to our sweet Eva yesterday," Young shared in a Facebook post, along with a photo of herself, her husband, and their son Harrison with Eva. We said hello and goodbye to our sweet Eva Grace yesterday.
The Unicorn Frappuccino may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the unicorn food trend is over. In fact, the extreme popularity of the beverage may have drawn even more attention to the fact that people are apparently smitten with bright colours and sparkles. In the past few months, The Bagel Nook has been popping up in the food news world because of its dessert bagels and of course, its Flamin' Hot Cheetos bagel.
