Kate Middleton, Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow make our best dressed list this week in their stylish outfits - by Nicola McCafferty
Vegans will have long been aware of the oddly named aquafaba. For those of you who've recently turned, though, this wonder ingredient is going to be a lifesaver when it comes to cooking.
Ben conceived an art project, called Piano Raft, in which he set himself 25 years to transport an old piano from Liverpool to London. In 2012 Ben rescued the raft from a warehouse in Liverpool. Ben, a founder of the Flash Mob movement in London and the Pillow Fight Club, had been looking for a new way of living, away from the strangulating costs in London.
Fast-forward to now, and the beauty sphere has followed suit, swapping the matte effect (which has had Instagram in a headlock for far too long) for a balmier, more delicate and all-round much-easier-to-pull-off makeup look. Perfect if you find foundation too much and tinted moisturiser not enough. 'Candlelight' is about right – your complexion will look bathed in it after a dusting of this illuminating powder.
It all started with physical illness. My second pregnancy was blighted by dizziness and vomiting that I dismissed as morning sickness. My eldest daughter, Marnie was only five and her baby sister just a few months old.
The popular BBC show is set in Sixties Northumberland and Shaw has played the eponymous police inspector – a growling, ex-army boxer, assisted by sergeant John Bacchus (played by Lee Ingleby) – for the last decade.
“Feminism means the commitment to holding my camera and walking in the streets of Kabul. Feminism means to actively challenge patriarchy through my confidence,” says Afghani filmmaker Sahar Fetrat boldly. Given that the answer comes from Afghanistan, it is even more astounding.
'Mummy' bloggers and best-selling authors Sarah Turner, the Unmumsy Mum, and Giovanna Fletcher speak to the Telegraph's Bryony Gordon in the third episode of her new podcast, Mad World, where she interviews guests about their mental health experiences. Giovanna Fletcher, author of bestselling Happy Mum, Happy Baby, has said that pregnancy and birth has changed the way she feels about her body forever. In Bryony Gordon’s new Mad World podcast, Fletcher who is married to former McFly member Tom Fletcher, opens up about having a miscarriage before having hers sons Buzz and Buddy : “I felt like the biggest failure ever.
Sometimes it can be as simple as rearranging your garden furniture, or creating new seating areas. Repainting wooden furniture or a shed also brings swift gratification, and there is plenty of magic you can work with plants, creating new beds or investing in a few large pots. Look critically at the space you have and start by editing out what you don’t want – throw out furniture that is falling apart, pull out unwanted plants and cut back overgrown shrubs.
Despite our many, many conversations about haircare, makeup tricks, and how we’re handling our various beauty concerns, hair loss among women is still a taboo subject. According to the American Hair Loss Association, women make up an estimated 40% of those affected by hair loss. “When I lost my hair I was so focused on what I had lost, that I hadn’t necessarily realised what I had gained,” Bamberger said in a video posted to Instagram.
Selena Gomez is well aware of the 13 Reasons Why backlash. Paris Jackson has asked her fans to watch 13 Reasons Why with "caution" because of the way portrays suicide, while Aislinn Paul, who played Clare Edwards on the long-running teen soap Degrassi, tweeted that she thought the show was more harmful than helpful. Gomez, though, has a response for 13 Reasons Why critics.
Everyone is going bare in L.A., but it's not what you think. We're not talking about topless beach protests or Carrie Bradshaw's infamous Brazilian bikini wax (although it is worth re-watching the Escape From New York episode if you have a chance) — but instead, the city's love affair with all things negative space, which just hit a fever pitch.
With packages ranging anywhere from $4,000 (£3,100) to $12,000 (£9,300) per ticket (and up to $250,000 (£193,000) for VIP packages), the luxury music fest promised attendees a “cultural moment created from a blend of music, art, and food.” It didn’t end or begin well. One of those people was model Bella Hadid. In a statement released Saturday via Twitter, Hadid addressed the disaster.
It's kind of scary to realise, but J.K. Rowling's first Harry Potter novel was published 20 years ago this June. While her wizarding world continues to expand with the Fantastic Beasts film franchise, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been a huge hit in the West End, it's still hard to beat the captivating storytelling of those original books. Beginning on the 20th of June, the Wizard Book Club will run every Tuesday evening until the 15th of August.
Flex those conversation muscles, stargazers! This Wednesday, May 3, messenger Mercury wraps up a signal-scrambling retrograde that began on April 9. Ever since then, we've all been stumbling over our words — and maybe winding up with the taste of shoe leather in our mouths. (Gulp.) But the gaffes and drags and lovers' quarrels ease up this week as Mercury corrects course. It's time to tell people how we really feel, but in a loving and supportive way. For best results, focus on the positive instead of playing amateur critic. ...
When the sun is shining on a lazy long weekend, the possibilities can seem endless: Picnic in the park, or brunch somewhere with a terrace? A stroll along the river, or a dip in your local lido? A crisp afternoon tipple, or a refreshing ice lolly? Well, that last decision just easier, at least, because Aldi has combined the two into some very grown-up, alcoholic ice lollies.
If Jay Gatsby lived in 2017 and had a private jet, it would in all likelihood look like The Manhattan. This new party plane, offered by Embraer Executive Jets for a cool $80 million (£64 million), is inspired by Manhattan's Art Deco history. Elements like a metallic mural that resembles the iconic Art Deco mural in the Empire State building, deep-mahogany wood panels, brass and gold trim, and vintage sconces give it that just-stepped-into-the-1920s feel.
Piercings are nothing new — earrings and nose piercings have reportedly been found from around 5,000 years ago, and it's believed they were used in ancient African and early European societies. The piercer freaked out, so 8-year-old me also freaked out.
A report by the Care and Quality Commission recently highlighted how staff shortages in residential and nursing homes is causing record levels of stress and fatigue among carers. According to the Office of National Statistics, about 1.3 million working parents now rely on their own parents to help them care for their children.
It's a bank holiday tomorrow. Praise by. But the UK only has eight of the joyous day each year (New Year Holiday, Good Friday, Easter Monday, May Day, Late May Bank Holiday, August Bank Holiday, Christmas Day and Boxing). That does not compare favourably with most other nations (indeed, Jeremy Corbyn recently sought to woo voters by claiming he will add three new public holidays to the calendar if elected).
Last week, Kathrine Switzer, the first woman officially to complete the Boston Marathon, back in 1967, ran the race again. Switzer, who was actually attacked by race official Jock Semple the first time she ran, wore the same bib number (261), lipstick (just as she had the first time) and completed the 26.2 miles in four hours, 44 minutes and 31 seconds. Switzer started running when she was 12.
On the evening of November 8, 1957, over a tiny atoll in the Pacific Ocean, a scientific test changed the course of British history. At 17.47 GMT, whirring high above Christmas Island in Kiribati, an RAF Valiant – the Vulcan’s higher-altitude big brother – dropped a bomb a hundred times more powerful than that which had devastated Hiroshima a dozen years earlier. It took 52 seconds to fall, and when it did, Britain’s first successful test of a megaton hydrogen bomb rendered the country a nuclear superpower for the first time.
Fiona Phillips is stressed. This is not the first time that Phillips has battled stress, nor is it the worst. GMTV viewers, who watched her with their cereal from 1997 to 2008, will know she spent more than a decade working in the high-pressure job with its 3.30am starts.
Jules Mountain will never forget the feeling, the moment it hit. Two years ago this week, he was lying in his one-man, coffin-like tent at Everest Base Camp, attempting to doze away a gently stinging hangover. Dazed and confused, Jules poked his head out of the canvas door to look out over the landscape, including to Pumori, an adjacent mountain known as ‘Everest’s daughter’.
In Sunday School, we were taught that all sins are equal. “I would have been so much happier had I not had the abortions, but I truly believe that I would have been so much unhappier if I had had the children.
