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.
There is one thing that triggers an instant negative reaction in the actor: the Dawson's Creek theme song. Van Der Beek's ears perk up every time "I Don't Wait To Wait" by Paula Cole comes on. "If I was at karaoke and it started playing, there’s a part of me – and I’m a fucking grown-ass man with four kids – that still wants to go hide under the table," Van Der Beek said in an interview with The Guardian.
The green woodpecker was once known as the “Rain Bird” for its perceived ability to predict an imminent downpour by crying out loudly and repeatedly across the countryside. Birders name it the green woodpecker’s “yaffle”, and it sounds exactly as it reads. The green woodpecker is the largest of the three woodpeckers that breed in Britain.
It seems that's doubly true for a few of the people following Kylie Jenner on Snapchat. Clad only in Puma briefs and a fashionably moth-eaten T-shirt (just kidding, it's probably a one-of-a-kind piece distressed by the hands of a Parisian couturier), Jenner showed off plenty of skin. Although Jenner was clearly feeling herself, a barrage of commenters accused her of photoshopping the image.
When it comes to brunch cocktails, Bloody Marys and mimosas get all the attention. First made in Venice in the 1940s, the traditional Bellini is a mix of Prosecco and peach purée. Nearly 90 years later, today you can find a wide variety of fresh fruits and bubblies for different takes on this classic drink.
Blogger Sarah Sapora hasn't worn a bikini in 25 years — until now. In a post to her blog, Sapora described why she eschewed the swimsuit for so long, and opened up about what led her to put one back on.
“Who do you represent, Ivanka? There the 35 year-old sat, flanked by the political heavy-weights Angela Merkel and Christine Lagarde, betraying the merest hint of nerves as she embarked on the first foreign event in her new official capacity: Adviser to the President. The W20 summit – designed to promote women’s economic empowerment – was a coming out of sorts for Ivanka, and a high pressure one at that.
Like Paula Hawkins’ 2015 hit The Girl On the Train, this, her second thriller, is one that will appear on those “beach reads” round-ups and stick around on bestseller stands at airports for months to come. Big, interesting themes, none of which are given enough pages.
Ten years ago, everyone was obsessed with reducing their fat intake and supermarket chains were brimming with low-fat products. Cardiologist, heart surgeon, and autoimmune disease expert Steven Gundry says that often the most nutrient-packed foods are the ones causing people digestion issues. In an article for Mind Body Green, Gundry explains that there’s one particular plant protein creating problems for our guts: lectin.
