Why Do Celebrity Marriages Never Seem to Last?

It’s been a busy few months with all the break-ups of celebrity couples. Most recently it was Seal and Heidi Klum, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, and before that Katy Perry and Russell Brand (which I’m sure we all saw coming from the moment they got together). The list is endless. It almost seems to [...]

The Kate Debate

Kate Middleton is once again on the cover of Grazia this week.

It seems that today talented young actresses are emerging into the limelight at younger and younger ages.

Frankie Sandford of ‘The Saturdays’ has gone one step further with her usual short hair style and opted for an elfin inspired pixie crop, much like the one Victoria Beckham sported back in 2008.   The singer’s signature short hair with a sweeping fringe has been her trademark for a while now so she obviously [...]

Rise of the Plus Size Model

It seems that curvy women are finally beginning to be embraced by the fashion world.

10 steps on how to work this key look for summer: 1. Go for patterns that flatter your body shape, I personally like to avoid stripes but they can look great on some.   2. Pair with wedge sandals or platforms for an elegant evening look.   3. Wear with gladiators or flip–flops during the [...]

All or Nothing?

One of the hardest things about breaking up is that not only are you losing a partner, but you’re also losing a friend.  A tough decision to make is whether to completely cut ties with this person or to try and remain friends. I’ve always been told that attempting to be friends with an ex [...]

Body Language and How to Read it

Everyone always asks themselves the same questions when they develop a new “crush” or find someone attractive. Does he like me? Should I speak to him first?
