It’s the end of the world as we know it – more post-apocalyptic fiction that I love/will shortly be reading
Avocado brownies – hurrah, that means brownies are now a superfood!
The perils of competing at the highest level of sports
Anyong! Arrested Development is back! We’re watching from Series 1 – 3 to celebrate. If you’ve never seen the show, hurry and find out what you’re missing now!
I made Rolo Cookies this week which were pretty decadent… but I’ve got to say, this Rolo Cake just knocks it out of the park. Wow!
Tesco will launch a chain of ‘artisan’ coffee shops called Harris and Hoole - but beware, though they may look like an independent, they aren’t!
We usually assume they’re cheaper, but can you cut your grocery bills by not shopping the supermarkets?
Usually, glasses make people look smarter. Like many other truisms, this rule seems to be reversed when the Kardashian’s are involved. Oh dear. I think it’s down to the fact that there don’t seem to be any actual glass in the frames!
Can we talk about the latest issue of Look magazine featuring Jessica Ennis? The Olympic gold medal winning heroine is featured on the cover in an interview/shoot obviously done pre-Olympic glory (I’m sure they hedged their bets with all the female athletes). What really gets me is the headline – How my man saved me at my lowest point. Thanks Look. What they’ve done there is imply that Jessica’s awesome achievement wouldn’t have even been possible without a man there to pick her up and set her on the path to greatness.
Of course, I’m not saying that family support isn’t a massively important factor in the success of the athletes. I’m sure her fiancee/husband/boyfriend was fantastically helpful and wonderful. But out of everything in the interview, why did Look have to pick the headline that diminishes her and her achievement?
Or, to put it another way, could you see Michael Phelps on the cover of GQ with a headline of ‘How my woman saved me at my lowest point’?
